Recap / Charmed S7E12 Extreme Makeover World Edition

Go To

Everything is ready for the Utopia to begin. The Avatars prepare to put the entire world's population to sleep while their minds are altered to eliminate all notion of conflict. Kyle, however, is still not convinced that the Avatars are good, and he has another potion. When he tries to reach out to the Elders for help, Zankou intercepts his call instead.


  • The Evils of Free Will: Part of the utopian spell is that people don't really have free will anymore, as that causes conflicts.

  • False Utopia: The world the Avatars have created is this. People who cause trouble are killed immediately, and their loved ones can't even properly grieve them because of the Avatar magic, leading to everyone just going along with it. Also, it's noted that nobody really has free will anymore.
  • Happiness Is Mandatory: People don't even grieve for their lost loved ones anymore due to Avatar magic.
  • Last Note Nightmare: When the usual series of overhead shots of San Francisco ends and the scene with Kyle and Zankou starts, the intro song segues into the background music in a rather unsettling manner.
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: Paige casually remarks that Kyle's death is "pretty damn sad." Deconstructed in that this is a warning sign to Leo that something is wrong.
  • To Be Continued: The final shot is Leo looking concerned about how the sisters have changed.

  • Utopia Justifies the Means: The Avatars certainly believe so.

How well does it match the trope?
