|Title:||The Warren witches - Witch trap|
Amelia de la Cruz, witch
William Olson and Amelia fell in love but William convinced her to wait till
he had found gold before he married her.
William found a rich gold strike soon but the claim belonged to Paul Conrad. Conrad was dying but he wanted his daughter Leanna to be provided. He offered to relinquish the claim to William if he would take Leanna as his wife. William married Leanna and became the richest man for many miles
One day though Amelia showed up. Amelia settled into the village, became known for her healing skills and took in laundry. Her presence became a constant irritation for William. Soon things started to happen in the town. Then Leanna fell ill and died. William who had already been blaming Amelia for the small things that happened changed overnight. He called for a town meeting and accused Amelia of being a witch.
Amelia de la Cruz was burnt on the stake.
When Marianna, William's sister, told the Charmed Ones about this her brother accused her of being under a spell by the witches. However when the town people wanted her to die he realised how far he has gone and turned to help her. Though Marianna probably died she now could be sure that her brother was regretting everything.
The Charmed Ones were transported back to the present.

Melinda Warren, ancestress strong,
help us now prevent a wrong
By our blood, by our need
Come to us. We summon thee
The sisters are sent back to the Gold Rush, where they remember
that it is not all about having powers.

Couldn't have said it better than
Anthony Manno in the readers' review:
"The Warren Witches" would suggest that we are getting a series of stories that explain the Warren legacy from the beginning. What we get (with two exceptions) is a series of time travel adventures. Anyone who knows the television show will agree with Grams at the end of "Something Old, Something New"-time travel is a headache. It causes too many inconsistencies, and fans do notice. It is also clear that the writers did not do this collection as a collaboration because there are story to story inconsistencies.
No new characters are introduced and Prue and Chris are missing completely.
