Book Of Shadows

To Call A Witches Power
Powers of the witches rise
course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
come to us and settle here.

To Summon Cryto
We call on the demon Cryto,
Reach back throughout the ages.
Humbled by his power,
We invite him into our circle.

To Vanquish Cryto
What witches done and then undone,
Return this spirit back within,
and separate him from his skin.

Book of Shadows Entry: To Seperate A Witch From Her Powers
In a boiling crucible of the blackest lead
combine gypsy blood with a mandrake's head
More of the nightshades will you boil
the henbane, datura and from nux an oil
With hemlock root complete the draught
foul and dark like the might and craft
Of the creator of this brew and her desire
to steal from another for vengeance, power or Ire


Piper: Alright, I'm only doing this for you guys. And if I get killed, I'm gonna haunt the both of you forever.

Prue: Phoebe, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing glasses. I mean, I wear them.
Phoebe: I know, but you're older. (Piper laughs.) Well you are.
Prue: Right, well, you know, I really hope that demon of vanity is after you because your soul would be toast.
Phoebe: I'm just gonna ignore that comment and go ask for directions.
Prue: Okay.

Piper: Phoebe, I love you, you're one of my two most favorite sisters but I don't want to give up having a life.

Piper: I don't understand, how could we let her do this to us?
Prue: Because we trusted her.
Phoebe: Yeah, well she just got crossed off of my Christmas list.
Piper: Aunt Gail was Gram's best friend, she used to bake us Christmas cookies,
Piper: And now she's spiking our tea.


Piper notices an elderly couple holding hands and says "Cute, huh?" to which Prue says "That could be you and Leo in like 50 years...In the final episode Forever Charmed Piper and Leo travel to the year 2050 which is 50 years from when Prue made her comment and they are in fact still in love.
The shirt that Piper is wearing when Dan comes home and sees her at the club is the same one that Hannah Webber from season 1 wore in the episode 'The Truth Is Out There And It Hurts'


Gail mentions that she was part of the sister's Grams coven however she isn't in or even mentioned the episode Witchstock in series 6.

Phoebe shows Gail a picture of her and Grams when they were in college together, though we do see a young Gail during this episode and is the same person in the picture, Grams looks nothing like the person in the episode 'Witchstock' in season 6.

Cryto is the demon of vanity. He gives you Youth, Beauty and Health in return for your soul. He is summoned by Gail who is sick and in return offers him the Charmed Ones powers. He agrees and gives Gail her youth but he takes the lives of Helen and Amanda making it known that he can also take away you life too should you cross him.
