Vanquishing the SourceEdit
This spell was first cast in Charmed and Dangerous. After many failed attempts to defeat the Source, Phoebe Halliwell with the help of Cole had created the spell. The sisters were preparing for the Source's impending attack, knowing that it was imminent. They had planned to trap him in a crystal cage upon attack. The Source, after absorbing Piper's and Paige's powers, attacked the sisters at the manor and injured Piper. Suddenly, Cole, who had absorbed the Hollow, shimmered in and jumped in front of Phoebe, protecting her from a fireball. Cole absorbed the fireball and was able to distract and weaken the Source with fireballs. The sisters then used the spell to call upon their ancestors to successfully vanquish him.
The sisters were forced to use the spell to vanquish Cole, who was possessed by the Source.
