Magical Notes Edit

Spells Edit

Dominus Trinus Edit

Hear now the words of the witches.
The secrets we hid in the night.
The oldest of Gods are invoked here.
The great work of magic is sought.
In this night and in this hour.
We call upon the Ancient Power.
Bring your powers to we sisters three!
We want the power!
Give us the power!

Powers Edit

  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper to blast Prue away from Paige. She also attempted to blast Prue, but she was immune and it was deflected to the floor.
  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige. She also created a portal of orbs to teleport Kareem and Aidel to Salem.
  • Energy Blast: Used by Prue to attack Piper.
  • Pyrokinesis: Used by Prue to attack Piper.
  • Telekinesis: Used by Prue to throw Piper to the ground and later to close the door of Halliwell Manor.
  • Portal Creation: Used by Tyler to close the portals and send the Old Ones back.
  • Sound Wave Emission: Used by Kareem to fight the Old Ones and to vanquish the seeds.
  • Smoke Secretion: Used by Aidel to fight the Old Ones and to vanquish the seeds.
  • Psychic Reflection: Used by Phoebe to reflect her memories to Prue (in combination with a spell) and to help Paige recover her memories.
  • Mediumship: Used by Amelia to help restore Paige's memories.

Artifacts Edit

  • Ancient Athame: An ancient athame capable of erasing souls from existence.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Originally, this issue was supposed to be a two-parter. However, when Zenescope decided to shorten the season, it was comprised that this issue would be extra long.
  • This issue is the first to show Prue in her true original form, though her face is obscured by her hair in one shot and she is shown from behind in the other.
  • In this issue, the original Charmed Ones are temporarily reconstituted when Paige is mortally injured and the Book of Shadows unleashes the Dominus Trinus spell to return the Power of Three to Prue.
  • Piper arriving at the manor with an umbrella during the rain is likely a reference to her first appearance in "Something Wicca This Way Comes".
  • On this Tumblr, Pat Shand confirmed that Prue's soul survived being stabbed by the Ancient Athame due to being the Nexus of the All. As the athame itself is a part of magic, it could not destroy magic itself.
  • As with every season finale, the manor door is magically closed at the end. This time, Prue closes it with telekinesis, much like Seasons 1, 2, and possibly 7.
