To Vanquish a Chameleon Demon
Evil hiding in plain sight,
I use this spell with all my might,
to stop you changing form and shape,
this vanquish seals your fate.

Mind Link
Life to Life
And Mind to Mind
Our Spirits now
will intertwine.
We meld our Souls
and journey to
the one whose thoughts
we wish we knew.

To Break a Mind Link
Life from Life
and Mind from Mind
Our spirits now
will disentwine.
We part our souls
and journey home
to let our thoughts
be on their own.

When Cole attacks the source with his energy balls, he makes the biggest energy ball that we will see in the whole series.
This storyline is a very similar one to one that was aired by the hit tv show 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'.
This is the second time Piper has been in a coma.
