** 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.

** Also before when she first tried healing. In "Charmed & Dangerous" she was able to heal Leo by tapping into his powers as well. She did love Leo somewhat at that point so that probably helped her do it then.




to:

* In "Charmed & Dangerous" the Seer's line "I didn't do this for your future. I did it for mine" seems like she just helped them to secure a future for all people - mortals and demons. However as the season progresses we learn that the Seer's master plan was [[spoiler: to impregnate Phoebe with the Source's child and take control of the baby to inherit the powers]].
* How do the Charmed Ones suddenly have a lot of knowledge about upper-level demons in the Book of Shadows? Well they do have one living in the house in Season 4. It's possible a lot of the entries in the Book of Shadows come from what Cole knows. He's bound to know what a good few of them look like - their strengths and weaknesses etc.

* Piper's power initially being classed as 'freezing time' and then later to freezing molecules. The Charmed powers were used by Melinda Warren in the 17th century. In-universe example of ScienceMarchesOn. Of course a woman in the 17th century would have no idea about molecules and would assume she was stopping time. This reveal also explains why Piper is able to selectively freeze things - along with being able to only freeze certain parts of someone's body.
* Why does Paige get telekinesis as her powers? Because there are only three Charmed powers and with multiple children they seem to go - telekinesis, freezing, premonitions. She was born when the three other powers had already been distributed, so it was just starting from the beginning again. If there had been another sister, she would have gotten freezing.
* Patty's theory about substituting the Power of Three in "That 70s Episode". Just after Phoebe was first conceived, Piper and Leo came from the future to have them recreate the Power of Three (with Penny from further on in time) to [[spoiler: vanquish the Hollow for good]]. Although she was returned to her time to just before she was taken (erasing her memory of it) perhaps she still had some deja vu about it - which is where she must have gotten the idea from.

to:

* The premonition of all the deaths Phoebe gets in "Charmageddon". Two of them are ones she didn't already see - Penny and Chris. So in addition to having to relive the other deaths, she also had to see her grandmother and nephew die for the first time.

** Before the hostage situation and Prue discovers that she's infected with Pride, there are subtle hints to it earlier on. She lectures Piper about her finances - wanting to show off her maturity and sense. She also doesn't object to Piper not coming along - giving herself more of a chance to show off her selflessness.
