* The entries added to the Book of Shadows by the sisters (like the Woogyman spell) are plain-looking text compared to the exquisitely illustrated earlier pages; yet, some spells they created, such as the Source vanquishing spell, or entries like the Fairies (which was said not to be in the Book in Season Three) have the same artistic style as the older pages. How is that possible? Well, even though it wasn't mentioned on screen ever since, in Season Four Paige was established to be a paintress: she might have been the one to illustrate the new pages.

** That was quite different, though: in "That 70s Episode", Patty was tapping into Phoebe's own powers and just channelling them, rather than re-creating the Power of Three in a cross-generational way.

** Conversely, how could Piper, Patty and Penny substitute the Power of Three when Penny had telekinesis but both Piper and Patty had time freezing? Patty was channelling unborn Phoebe's premonition power, thus completing the set anyway.

** It seems like there's some evidence that Wyatt has some form of Piper's power in the future in "Imaginary Fiend", and we also see Chris having telekinesis at various times. Maybe things got changed around since they broke the chain of girls in the family? Or they have multiple powers.

* See how in love Penny and Alan are in "Witchstock". After his death it's established he became TheLostLenore and Penny became the famous demon hunter. However remember that losing Alan caused her to become bitter and cynical towards men - having five more failed engagements and four failed marriages. She ultimately died alone and still bitter over losing Alan.
** Although HeartwarmingInHindsight since she and Alan are probably TogetherInDeath.

** Piper's ability to freeze something or make it explode is really the same power: manipulating the speed of the target's molecules. Anything that's immune to one is immune to the other. At least the explosions have the potential for splash damage.

* Not quite sure if this is best classified as "Fridge Horror", but it certainly gave this troper some: the scene in "The Power of Three Blondes" where the 3 titular blondes magically [[spoiler: usurp the sisters' identities and then start coming on to Chris]]. Towards the end of the episode, one of the [[spoiler: fakes]] asks her sister, the one who's [[spoiler: stolen Phoebe's identity]], if she slept with [[spoiler: Chris]]; he says "yes". This despite the fact that as far as under-the-spell [[spoiler: Chris]] is concerned, the woman in question is [[spoiler: his BIOLOGICAL AUNT WHOSE CARE HE GREW UP UNDER]]. A quite credible argument for the idea that his relationship to the Charmed Ones wasn't conceived by the writers until after the start of the season it happened in.
** Or he was lying- he was trying to create discord at the time, remember.
** Earlier in the episode, Chris acts a little disturbed when Fake!Phoebe is hitting on him, (this is before he figures out that she's an imposter) and even firmly tells her that "I'm really, REALLY not interested." He was almost certainly lying, though. Note that Fake!Phoebe denies sleeping with him, and given that the other Stillman sisters believed Chris without any evidence in spite of their sister's denial, there wasn't really any reason for him to actually sleep with Fake!Phoebe.

* It's been noted that the shear number of things threatening to turn Wyatt evil starts to look a bit ridiculous, but consider: in season 1 it was mentioned that Phoebe is more vulnerable to temptation than the other three because she was the only one born in the house, which gives her a stronger connection to the Nexus. Wyatt was also born in the house, giving him the same connection to the Nexus as Phoebe, and the same vulnerabilities. Compare to his brother, who was born in a hospital, and his sister and cousins, all of whom were born after the Nexus had been destroyed.

**Likewise pretty much every single villain that wanted to kill the Charmed Ones ForgotAboutHisPowers instead of just teleporting in the middle of the night and attacking the sisters when they were sleeping.
