Description

A window where a newly empowered witch has 48 hours to decide whether to use their powers for good or evil.

.
"48 little hours. The window of opportunity agreed to eons ago by both sides to protect free will. The great flaw in the grand design."
The Oracle[src]

The Window of Opportunity is a mythological window where newly empowered witches who have not decided to whether use their powers for good or evil yet have 48 hours to make the decision. Witches cannot be forced to choose a side, but both sides can entice them. For this reason, evil considers it a flaw in the Grand Design, as they can employ manipulation to lure witches to evil. If the witch does an act of good (such as saving a life), she becomes good, and vice versa.

HistoyEdit

The Window was designed eons ago by good and evil to protect free will. The window only presented itself to those who had not decided to use their magic for good or evil yet.

Charmed Again, Part 2Edit

4x02-067-paige

Paige, on the edge of turning evil while still under the Window of Opportunity.

Phoebe: Wait, so all he has to do is cast a spell on her?
Cole: No, he can't. It has to be her choice, but he can tempt her, entice her. If he gets her to use her powers for evil…
Leo: She becomes evil forever.
Piper: Who makes use these cockamamie rules? (Leo looks up and Cole looks down) Oh, never mind…


The Source tried to lure Paige, who was new to her powers, to the side of evil, instead of killing her. He first possessed Shane (her boyfriend) and Jake Grisanti (a man accused of abusing his child) to tempt her to use her power to take the life of an innocent. On the edge of turning evil, Paige almost took Jake's heart, but Leo orbed her out before she could succeed. The Source tried again to persuade Paige, but when he electrocuted Phoebe, Paige shoved him out of the way to save her sister at the last minute of her 48th hours, and this act of good made her a good witch.

—Paige to Brent[src]

Paige attempted to persuade her new protege Brent to use his powers for good. She went with him to the Magic School and explained to him that he can choose the side of good or evil within the next 48 hours. However, he was killed by Neena and Hogan before he had the chance to decide.
