Book Of Shadows

Demonic Power Broker
Demons that auction Demonic Powers
off to the highest bidder. They are
known to sometimes use humans to
store Powers until they are bought.

A human being possessed of a demonic
power will become confused, then
frightened, paranoid, violent and
demonic and will ultimately die
if the power isn't withdrawn.


To Pull A Demonic Power Out Of A Human
In a Pot combine the following:

1 Quart of Water
A dried Amaranth flower
Three Pinches of Anise Seed
Sprig of Boneset
Burdock Root
Dandelion Root
3 Drops Almond Oil

Bring to a boil and allow all ingredients to brew for
hours until they have become one with each other.
Add a pinch of Hyssop and steep for one-half hour.
The infected one must imbibe this potion to be cured.


Cole: You can't go yet Paige, we haven't gotten to the good part.
Paige: Oh, I'm sorry, I thought watching you guys make out all night was supposed to be the highlight of my evening

Phoebe: How do you spell 'oblique'?
Piper: With spellcheck.

Paige: I can't believe I destroyed the house.
Phoebe: What I can't believe is what you almost saw in the hotel room. If you had gotten there five minutes earlier...
Piper: Lalala! Oversharing

Cole: I was with the entire family. Have you lost your mind?
The Seer: Forgive me, but it was imperative that I have you here now if my ritual is to take effect.
Cole: I am trying to be the perfect husband. The perfect brother-in-law. It would help if I didn't have demons waving at me from the dance floor.


It's well known that Whitelighters are able to sense when their charges are in trouble or are in pain, yet Leo didn't sense that Paige was hurting and in fear when Cole was attacking her in the attic of the manor.

On the DVD set of Charmed this episode is called "The Fifth Halliwell" instead of "The Fifth Halliwheel".

One of these powers was stored in Karen the power made her confused and wandering around the streets, Piper and Phoebe found and saved her and took her back to the Manor.
