Paige and Phoebe think there's something wrong with Piper's memory. Paige casts a spell to restore it, but instead, she completely erases it, as it intersected badly with Leo's magic. They think Leo can help them, but Chris tells them Leo went missing. They find out he's imprisoned on an island filled with Valkyries, and they try to save him. Meanwhile, Phoebe discovers she has a new power: empathy.

Book of ShadowsEdit
- A monstrous two-headed
- demon who generates violent
- waves with his roars. He can
- only be summoned while on an
- earthly plane and can be
- vanquished by this spell:
- From other world far and near,
- let's get him the Trok out of here.
- A powerful race of demi-goddesses who scout
- the battle grounds for dying Warriors then
- take their souls to Valhalla where they
- prepare them for the final world battle.
Paige and Phoebe noticed Piper was acting weird. They thought Leo had something to do with it, but because he disappeared, they couldn't ask him. Paige cast this spell, hoping it would bring back Piper's memories, and thus bringing back her pain. The spell didn't work as it should have: it completely erased Piper's memory.
- Powers and emotions tied,
- A witch's heart is where it hides.
- Help her through her agony,
- Bless her with her memory.
- Paige created a Coma Induction Potion for Darryl, so they could borrow his soul to take it with them to Valhalla.
- She also created a potion to open the cage door at Valhalla, which was magically closed.
- Empathy: Phoebe used this power to feel the emotions of Chad, Piper, Paige, Darryl, Sheila, Chris, and a little girl at the beach.
- Telekinesis: Chris used this power to flip through the Book of Shadows and to crush a Valkyries heart. Two Valkyries used it to fling Paige and Phoebe.
- Portal Creation: Type of Teleportation used by the Valkyries (and the sisters as Valkyries).
- Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige and Chris.
- Summoning: Phoebe summons the Trok Demon with her mind.
- Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper to blow up one of the Trok Demon's heads and a flower pot in the conservatory.
- Force Blasts: Used by the Trok Demon to attack the sisters.
- Soul Absorption: Used by Valkyries to absorp souls into a bottle.
- A Valkyrie magically locks and unlocks the cage door.
- Corporealization: Used by Freyja to corporealize the soldier's spirit. Darryl's spirit became corporeal.
- Telekinetic orbing: Used by Wyatt to orb his pacifier to him.
- Force Field: Wyatt created a force field to protect himself from Chris.
- The Book of Shadows - The Halliwell Family's magical tome. In addition to spells and potion recipes, the Book of Shadows contains information on warlocks, demons, and other supernatural beings. It was created by their ancestor, Melinda Warren and was passed down every generation.
- Scrying Crystal - Paige first scried for Leo with one of his shirts. She used a map of San Francisco, the world and the solar system. This attempt failed, but later on, she tried again. She used Wyatt to scry with, and was capable of finding Leo.
- Both the Charmed Ones and the Valkyries possess a bottle to capture spirits.
- Valkyries - Demi-goddesses, who bring souls of died warriors to their island Valhalla, where they train them for the world's final battle. They imprisoned Leo on their island, commissioned by Chris. The name in Norse mythology means 'chosers of the slain', and involved taking the lucky few to the 'hall of the slain' - Valhalla.
- Trok Demon - A demon with two heads. The sisters summoned and vanquished him, because he was a possible threat to Wyatt.
- Chad Carson - A radio DJ at KQSF Radio Station. He wanted to date Phoebe, but he didn't dare to ask her out. She felt it, thanks to her empathy, and asked him out herself. Later on, he cancelled on her, because he was intimidated by successful women.
Notes and TriviaEdit
- As later mentioned in Part 2 of this episode, five weeks have passed since the events in "Oh My Goddess! Part 2".
- Darryl and Sheila have a son named Darryl Jr.
- Only Alyssa, Rose and Dorian get new title clips from this episode onwards. Holly and Brian have the same ones seen in Season 5. Also, Drew Fuller has been added to the opening credits.
- Phoebe receives her third power in this episode: Empathy. This power was seen in "Primrose Empath", and because of what Prue went through, Phoebe fears what might happen to her, though, Leo reassures her later that it won't happen to her, as she was supposed to receive this power, whereas Prue was not.
- In the second part of this episode, we see three new abilities developed from Empathy: Channeling, Replication and High Resistance.
- This is the third and final time that Phoebe receives a new power, though her powers keep advancing in the comics.
- Chad, the DJ that interviews Phoebe in the beginning of the episode, works for KQSF network, the same that exposed the Charmed Ones in "All Hell Breaks Loose".
- At the time, Phoebe is the only one to have more than two witch-powers.
- This is the first time we see Phoebe channeling powers. She continues to use this ability throughout Season 6, until she loses her active powers.
- Despite appearing in the Season 5 finale, this episode marks the first official appearance of Drew Fuller as a member of the show's main cast.
- Alyssa Milano cut her hair "pixie style", and will be seen like this for the rest of Season 6. Behind the scenes, Alyssa cut it to commemorate turning 30.
- Rose McGowan lightened her hair since last season. She is now strawberry blonde.
- Holly Marie Combs has much longer bangs than in the previous episodes.
- Despite several references to Jason, Eric Dane does not appear in this episode.
- This is the first and only two-hour season premiere not to feature the shorter opening credits consisting of the glowing triquetra as first seen in "Charmed Again, Part 1"; instead, the normal Season 6 opening credits are used.
- The WB promo title of the episode is "Valkyrie Vixens".
- Phoebe summons the Trok Demon by focusing her mind on him. This is the first time that a being is summoned without the use of a spell.
- This is the first time the sisters begin to abuse their relationship with Darryl, a process that leads to him turning against them later in the season.
- This is the last season premiere to mention Prue as she will not be mentioned in the following two seasons' premieres.
- The title is obviously a play on Jacqueline Susann's 1966 novel "Valley of the Dolls", made into a film released the following year starring Barbara Parkins and Patty Duke.
- When Chris gets pulled upstairs by the dogs, his "natal cleft" can be seen cause of bumping against the wall. With Margo Stillman and the male model in "My Three Witches" this is one of three strange booty-scenes in this season.
