Recap / Charmed S8E21 Kill Billie Vol. 2

Go To

Exiled from the Manor and hiding at Phoebe's, the Charmed Ones are contacted by two demons who help them prepare for the battle against the Triad and the Jenkins sisters.


  • Beam-O-War: The Charmed Ones and the Jenkins sisters, all possessed by the Hollow, use them during the final battle. Oddly, the Charmed Ones fire six beams while the Jenkins sisters fire four, yet somehow the beams all still block each other.

  • Black Eyes of Evil: The Charmed Ones and the Jenkins sisters each get these when they absorb the Hollow.
  • The Bus Came Back: The only upside to what happens in the Darkest Hour: the Angel of Destiny brings Leo back.
  • Call-Back: The way Piper cradles Phoebe's dead body in her arms is very similar to how Prue did the same to Piper herself in "All Hell Breaks Loose" - another episode where a sister's death is solved with going back in time.
  • Continuity Nod: The Hollow returns, and Paige references how it drove the Source insane.
  • Cross-Referenced Titles: With Kill Billie Vol. 1. This is the last episode where the Jenkins sisters are prominently featured as antagonists (they are Out of Focus in the next episode) . Kill Billie Vol. 1 was the episode where the story arc of their reunion began.
  • Darkest Hour: After the battle has been fought and the Manor exploded, Piper wakes up to find out that Phoebe is dead, Paige is nowhere to be found (presumably dead as well) and the only other survivor is Billie. Piper starts beating her up and tries to kill her twice before Leo stops her.

  • Downer Ending: See Darkest Hour.
  • Enemy Mine: The Charmed Ones willingly work with demons in order to come up with a way to stop Billie and Christy.
  • Hair Reboot: Inverted. Leo's hair is inexplicably shorter than it was when he was taken - despite him literally being frozen in time.
  • Hope Spot: After Leo is returned, Piper hears a noise in the wreckage and hopes that it's Paige. Instead, it's Billie.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: A pair of demons help the Charmed Ones in order to prevent the Triad from taking power.
  • Reality Ensues: One of the demons notes that the last eight years have caused so much chaos and upheaval in the Underworld that (assuming the Triad is stopped) it's unlikely anyone will be causing serious trouble until Wyatt and Chris are adults.
  • Screw Destiny: The witches did this on accident. The Angel of Destiny says that the battle didn't occur how she had expected it.

  • Spoiler Opening: Brian Krause reappears in the opening credits.
  • Stock Sound Effects: The sound effect used when the Manor blows up is the same sound effect from Angel when the Angel Investigation office is blown up.
  • To Be Continued: How the episode ends.
  • Trash the Set: In the final scene of the episode, the Manor is blown up. As a result, this episode was actually filmed last (as the Manor was still needed for "Forever Charmed").
  • What Happened to the Mouse?:
    • As we never find Paige's body, her death doesn't seem to be confirmed. However the next episode opens with Piper and Leo coming into Phoebe's condo, we can assume they did search for Paige and confirm her death.
    • Nomed the demon disappears after the sisters absorb the Hollow's powers. Presumably he went off gathering power to one day challenge them or their descendants in the future.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Christy will easily use Wyatt to summon the Hollow. Billie is conflicted but goes along with the plan anyway.

How well does it match the trope?
