Notes and TriviaEdit

  • This episode is the 100th episode of Charmed.
  • This episode marks the first appearance on Penny Halliwell and Victor Bennett this season, though Victor only appears briefly in a premonition.
  • Paige once again uses Telekinetic Orbing without any vocal command.
  • The episode in which Piper would give birth was originally planned much differently. Piper would have been kidnapped by a warlock and his witch girlfriend, who was a part of Lumen's coven. Part of this plot was eventually used in "Romani and Juliet", though the witch instead became a young Gypsy.
