To Send the Noxons to the Astral PlaneEdit
Because they are unvanquishable, the only way to get rid of the Noxon Demons is to banish them to the Astral Plane, since that plane exists out of time. Paige and Piper found Pator, the remaining Noxon Demon, and when they orbed over to him, Christy orbed with them. When Piper threw the potion to torture him to get him to confess who he works for, Christy starts casting the spell.
