Cross now the great divide.

They have no right,
They have no power,
Turn their hate sticks into flowers.

Snuff this warlock his days are done
But make him good for the ecosystem.

To Vanquish a Slime DemonEdit

Drawing on the Power of Three,
Destroy this evil entity!

PotionsEdit

  • Phoebe and Paige made a potion to blast Nigel.
  • They made another potion, but he blinked out before it could hit him, so its effects are unknown.
  • Penny was working on a Binding Potion.

PowersEdit

  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Chris and Paige.
  • Levitation: Used by Phoebe to levitate, so the Slime Demon would sense her magic.
  • Sensing: Used by the Slime Demon to sense magic.

  • Reconstitution: Used by the Slime Demon to reconstitute after Piper blew it up.
  • Smoking: After Paige put on the Go-Go Boots, she disappeared in smoke.
  • Sparkling: Paige, Phoebe and Piper appeared in 1967, surrounded by sparkles. They later appeared in the present the same way.

  • Photokinesis: Used by the 1967 Leo with two other Whitelighters to create figures made of orbs.

Witchstock Trailer

  • The episode title is a play on words to the 1969 event Woodstock - a free festival where nearly 500,000 people came to celebrate peace and love.
  • This is the twelfth episode to have the word "witch" in the title.
  • This episode originally was meant to be written about Patty as a teenager; one of the episode's purposes being for Paige to get to know her biological mother better. However, Finola Hughes was unavailable, and the episode was re-written for Grams instead. Because of this, there are a number of inconsistencies in the timeline which would befit an episode stemming ten years even further back in time: For one, just eight years after this episode takes place, Grams has noticeably, drastically aged.
  • Penny was reportedly born on June 23, 1937, making her 30 years old in this episode. This also adds to the inconsistency argument for numerous reasons.
    • Penny says that Allen introduced her to the hippie lifestyle shortly after they met, implying they haven't been married that long. However, since Patty was born in 1950 (making Penny only 13), in all likelihood Penny and Allen were married sometime in the late 1940s, though they could've gotten married after Patty was born.
    • Clearly Penny's birthdate is incorrect. She was more likely born in the '20s, putting her in her 40s when Paige visited her in the past.
  • According to the Halliwell family tree, Penny's husband is listed as Jack, not Allen. Jack could be Allen's middle name or nickname.
  • Actress Holly Marie Combs was actually pregnant and showing when this episode was taped. Hence, large clothes and trick camera angles were used to hide this fact.
  • As from this episode on, we see actor Brian Krause having a shorter, darker hairstyle than that of the opening credit clips and previous episodes. Noticeably, Leo's a blond/dark blond (considering his look, back in the 60's). The change is more noticeable through the course of posterior episodes.
  • When Paige sees Grams in the past, she is doing a chakra cleanse of herself. In Used Karma, Paige mentions a Chakra cleanse in the Book of Shadows.
  • This is the last time we see the Charmed Ones face a warlock in the television series. The next time the sisters would face a warlock is in Season 9.
  • This is the last time we see Phoebe use her power of levitation on the show.
  • Piper loses her powers for the fourteenth time, Phoebe for the twelfth time and Paige for the seventh time.
  • As was the case when the sisters went back to colonial times, they only had basic powers in 1967, because they technically hadn't been born yet.
  • When Chris is getting swallowed by the Slime Demon in the attic, Piper's Fearless Spell can be seen written on the wall.
  • Magic appeared to be used much more openly than it is now. For instance, Penny had no qualms about chanting a spell to turn the cops' nightsticks into flowers right in front of everyone.
  • Robin spoke with a deeper and more sinister voice when she dropped her facade of being just another hippie-witch. Her fireballs also looked similar to those used by upper-level demons.
  • The song hippie-Grams sings to Wyatt is the 60's protest anthem "We Shall Not Be Moved".
  • In Robin's spell she calls upon the "Crone". The Crone was a demonic seer in Charmed's fifth season.
  • Wyatt uses his telekinetic orbing power again, to bring his bottle to himself.
  • This episode scored 5.3 million viewers.
  • The grandfather clock is broken again as it was also broken in 1924, so just 28 more times for it yet!

GlitchesEdit

  • The young Penny in this episode had red hair, but in the photo seen in the episode How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans, we see that Penny had dark colored hair when she was younger, though she might have simply changed her hair color. Incidentally, in Forever Charmed, Penny had red hair.
  • Paige claims in this episode that she was born "in the year of the Ox" and therefore is a natural leader. If this were true, Paige would've had to have been born in either 1973 or 1985, neither of which is the case. In previous episodes, it was stated Paige's year of birth was 1977. (Note: this is a fourth wall glitch, as Rose McGowan actually was born in 1973.)
  • When the sisters are in 1967, they have a look in The Book of Shadows. After a little search, Phoebe finds a much thinner Book of Shadows. However, when Allen caught Robin, The Book of Shadows can be seen behind Robin, on its stand, completely filled with pages.
  • The Book of Shadows in this episode only seems to have about 50 pages, yet, 10 years later, it's completely filled up with about 500 pages. If every Warren witch would have added to the Book since the 17th century, it surely would have more pages by the time Grams would have it in her possession. However, it is likely that during Grams' peacenik days, she might have taken out all entries on vanquishing and killing evil as well as the demon entries, leaving only spells and potions that don't cause harm, and possibly placed them back when she ended her peacenik ways.
  • When Leo, Grams and Chris are running down the stairs to escape The Slime, because of the falling debris, a stunt doll was used for Wyatt as to not injure the real baby.
  • When Phoebe levitates as the bait and the Slime Demon is charging toward her underground, from the shot that is pointed to the ground, though you can see Phoebe's back, her arms begin to go up slowly as if she were panicking. Though when it changes to the side of her front side, it doesn't look like her arms were up at all a split second ago.

Penny: Snuff this warlock
His days are done
But make him good for the ecosytem?

Phoebe: What about Grams?
Leo: She didn't make it.
(The basement door opens and smoke pours out. Grams walks out, coughing.)
Grams: Nonsense. You can't damage an old war horse like me. I'm already dead.
Phoebe: Yay, Grams, I'm so glad you're back.

Paige: Hey there, sun god.
Leo: Hey, that was a long time ago. Let's just keep that between us, okay?
