Notes and Trivia Edit

Charmed 4x1900:20

Charmed 4x19

  • Alyssa Milano is wearing the same shirt she wore in the season four premiere, "Charmed Again".
  • Phoebe finally discovers Cole's evil plans and him being the Source. She discovered this through a premonition. While she touched Cole many times while he was the Source, Phoebe was previously unable to get a premonition off of him because the Source protected himself. The Seer, however, had warned Cole/Source that Cole's love for Phoebe could leave him vulnerable, which presumably caused the premonition to occur.
  • The title of the episode is a reference to one of the most memorable songs of The Wizard of Oz (1939)
  • When the Wizard asks if they have heard of any other wizards besides Merlin, Paige makes a sarcastic comment asking if Harry Potter counts.
  • This is the fourth episode in which Phoebe is evil.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Piper, Phoebe and Paige use all their primary and secondary powers. Piper freezes the Wizard and blows up demonic guards and the Dark Priest. Phoebe levitates to dodge an attack while fighting Julie and has a premonition while touching Cole. Paige telekinetically orbs the Grimoire and normally orbs throughout the episode. The only other episode in which this happens is Size Matters.
  • This episode scored 4.2 million viewers.
  • This episode marks the point in Phoebe's current life that she has inadvertently relived the mistakes of her past life seen in Pardon My Past. She fell in love with an evil being, has been turned evil because of their love, and chooses their love over her family. She even has the same power of Fire Throwing.


  • At the beginning of the episode, when Cole and the Dark Priest walk up to the aisle, the Grimoire already lays open. However, when the shot changes, the Dark Priest opens the Grimoire.
  • After the opening credits, when Phoebe is talking to Piper and Paige, her boots are cream with heels. But when she leaves the apartment, she has black shoes.
  • Leo describes Fire Throwing as an upper-level demonic power. However it has been used by Warren witches, lower-level demons and other witches throughout the series.
