Magical NotesEdit


To Intertwine MoralitiesEdit

  • Naberius used this spell twice in order to alter his morality and touch the Book of Shadows. The second time, he used a knife as a conduit.
From light to dark and dark to light,
Opposing forces in eternal fight,
Come together and cross the line,
Let these opposites bind and intertwine.


  • Shimmering: Used by Naberius as means of teleportation.
  • Telekinesis: Used by Naberius to throw Frank, Christine and Phoebe and to choke Frank.
  • Remote Shimmering: Used by Naberius to remotely shimmer Christine and Frank.
  • Orbing: Used by Charlie as means of teleportation.
  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper to combust a coffee cup, attack Naberius and his minion and to destroy the knife.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • The title is a reference to the polar opposites on morality, Sinners (evil) and Saints (good).
  • Prior to this episode, Dark Priests have only appeared in supporting roles. Naberius is the first priest to be a true antagonist.
  • It is revealed that Phoebe is still insecure about dating due to her bad experiences with Cole. She begins to suspect Derek is hiding something from her.
  • Paige decides to take a break from work to find out what she truly wants.
  • Charlie accidentally reveals Leo personally picked him to replace him, while Piper realizes she has not really accepted that he is gone.
  • It is hinted in this episode that the Book of Shadows is at least somewhat sentient, as Paige remarked not to piss off the book after it vanquished Naberius.
