Recap / Charmed S8E10 Vaya Con Leos

Go To

Paige is outraged when Henry offers to split the bill on their date. Billie finds the low-level demon who kidnapped her sister, but the latter gets taken away by a demonic bounty hunter who doesn't want him to talk. The Angel of Death appears before Piper with a warning: he will soon come for Leo. A protection spell Piper casts on Leo makes all men in San Francisco look like him.


  • Bargain with Heaven: The Charmed Ones make a deal with the Angel of Destiny for Leo to be returned if they defeat the coming threat.

  • Cosmic Plaything: Literally. The Angel of Destiny arranged for Leo to die in order to give the Charmed Ones the motivation to overcome a coming evil.
  • The Dreaded: The Angle of Death, the Avatars and the Elders are all terrified of the Angels of Destiny.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: The Angel of Death appears to Leo before it's time in order to give him time to prepare for what's coming. Also, he admits to feeling bad about the whole thing (which he attributes to his past encounters with the sisters) and points Piper in the direction of the answers she seeks.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Piper at the end of the episode.
  • Human Popsicle: Leo's fate at the end of the episode.
  • Irony: The only way to one day save Leo is to lose him now.
  • Life Isn't Fair: Leo notes that he gave up being an Elder to be with his family and only a few months later, he's going to die.

  • Not So Different: The summoned Elder and Avatar have no regard for each other, but they're both resistant to telling Piper what's going on. Piper lampshades that this is the one time Elders and Avatars actually agree on anything.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Angel of Death's role in the plot. He tells Piper that he's just carrying out his part in the grand design and didn't make it so.
  • Put on a Bus: Leo is frozen and taken away by the Angel of Destiny.
