5.01 A Witch's Tail - Part 1

The amount of scales change from time to time on Phoebe's bikini top (Emily)

top

 

5.02 A Witch's Tail - Part 2

When Phoebe signs the divorce papers at the end, you see she spelled Phoebe as Pheobe. (Emily)

top

 

5.03 Happily Ever After

When the evil witch strangles the Keeper of Fairytales, there's blood dripping down where she grasps him around the neck. However when she drops him, there's no blood either on the corpse or on her hands.

Since when are 'Evil Witches' known as such. According to the first episode, they are known as Warlocks (unless of course they're using it as a name)

Why didn't Piper just freeze the wolf when it attacked her? She certainly had time to scream, it would have taken about the same time for her to use her powers.

Why didn't Grams do something when she saw the wolf (instead of just standing there and screaming of course). From past episodes we've gleaned that she's a formiddable old woman, and even if she didn't have her powers she could have at least thrown a knife at it or something!!

5x04 Siren's song

Piper asks Leo: "What's with all the chatter in my head?" She's surprised that he hears these voices all the time, but she shouldn't be, because she swapped powers with Leo before.

Paige threw the pole into the Siren's stomach. When the demon is healing her, she is clearly holding the pole with her other hand.

The sound that Phoebe made when she almost kicked Cole, is different in her dream then it was in the episode 3x01 The honeymoon's over.

When the Siren throws Piper out the window (while they're in the hospital), the window breaks before Piper hits it.

After Paige says the spell, they go to a shot of Piper, Leo, and Phoebe. When it goes back to Paige if you look in the background the windows are still broken.

5x05 Magic wears a mask

Who owns the car that's shining on Kevin and Kaz just past the opening credits? Kevin walks down the alleyway and gets caught in the headlights - then Kaz shows up, beats up on him, and strolls away with his henchmen. The car's still there.

Paige disappeared in the middle of...ummm, "the height of intimacy" with Dave and he didn't notice? At all? That seems kind of impossible to do, all things considered.

When Cole and Phoebe are talking on the roof, the Transpyramid Tower appears in the background behind them both when the flag is behind them, and when the camera angle switches to the reverse side so it'd be about where the flag is.

How did the slumlord manage to find Phoebe going into the airport hangar? She and her sisters have been super-speeding around town (so he couldn't have been trailing them) and neither the slumlord nor the guards he told to check her out would have any idea where to find her.

if you watch the show carefully, you will notice that there are three different drawing of the charmed ones as superhero. First, when Kevin starts to draw, he drew a Phoebe which is too big for him to fit in Piper and Paige in the same page which we saw later. Then before the bad guy tear the page from the book, the binding holes are at the left while when he tears it in front of the charmed ones, it is at the right side. Then the two pictures is actually completely different if you pause it to see it for many times, their pose and drawing style is completely different, especially when you see Paige in the drawing, in one of them her hair was filled in with black stripe while the other is leave blank.

Although the episode must happen somewhen shortly before the spring equinox it does not fit into the time schedule because 5x15 "Special delivery" where Wyatt is born must happen at the end of January or early February.

5x06 The eyes have it

They say Eva wasnt in the attic but in Phoebes premonition you see her next to Paige

At Teresa's funeral the box of crackers was on top of the bananas, then it disappears in the next shot of the casket.

When Phoebe takes the gypsy's hands at the beginning of the episode, one camera angle shows Phoebe's hands on top of the gypsy's, while another angle shows Phoebe's hands under the gypsy's.

When the Gypsy reads Phoebe's palm she draws lines on Phoebe's hand however when Phoebe sat down at the table the lines were already visible on her hand before they had been drawn there.

5x07 Sympathy for the demon

Cole says Barbas can use his power to become the Source - in the episode "Womb Raider" they established an aspiring Source also needs the Grimoire, which was hidden away by Leo beneath the Andes.

If stripped powers need a body to go to after being stripped, how come Belthazor's powers didnt go anywhere in 4x08 Black as Cole

When Phoebe is hugging Paige after Leo brings her back to life, in the background Paige's head is on Phoebe's left shoulder facing the camera, but on the close-up before they stand up, it is on Phoebe's right shoulder facing away.

5x08 A witch in time

The brief shot we see of Phoebe's newspaper letter column consists of two-sentence opinions on different subjects and there's no indication of any letters from readers or anything.

The gangbanger's hand moves noticeably as the extra tries to hold the gun up and pretend to be "frozen."

When Phoebe runs into the building to see if Miles is still there, we see and hear that she is wearing black high heeled shoes. (You can see hers shoes more clearly the second time she runs in) When she comes out and when her and Piper are running down the sidewalk you can see she know has on big cream colored boots that look a lot more comfortable.

When future-Piper and present-Piper are sitting in the car, future-Piper pinches present-Piper and then shows her arm, cause she got a bruise (to show that they're the same person). Wouldn't the baby heal the bruise immediately?

Leo should have been in awful pain the second Paige died, because that always happens when one of his charges is hurt or killed. Instead, he orbs up to the attic after Piper calls for him and he's shocked to see two of the sisters dead.

5x09 Daddy dearest

Why couldn't Paige summon the arrow and the poison from Sam? If she couldn't touch it all she had to do was get a pair of cleaning gloves from the kitchen first

In P3, when Piper and Phoebe are talking about nannies, when the camera is on Piper, the people in the background, dissapear only to reappear in the next shot.

When Leo and Piper orb in the kitchen while Cole is impersonating Sam, Leo has his hand on Piper's upper arm close to her shoulder holding her close to him, when the camera is behind them and we see Phoebe mixing a potion, Leo's hand is not in the frame but Piper's right shoulder and arm are.

During the post-credits conversation between Paige and Piper (sorry, not Phoebe), Paige's black bra-strap pops in and out of view each time the shot shifts.

When Paige and Phoebe are sitting at the bar at the beginnning their arms change positions between every shot. (Shay)

5x10 The mummy's tomb

During the establishing shot, before Phoebe, Darrel, and Paige go to the crime scene, there is a drop of water on the camera lense, look carefully. It is in the bottom right corner.

Piper's hair keeps going from in front of her shoulder to behind while she is in the attic talking to Leo and Paige about Jeric. Between Leo, Piper and Paige failing to stop Jeric from taking Phoebe to when they returned to the manor to try to locate her, Leo's hair appears to have been trimmed. It has grown out again when he goes to meet Daryl.

Didn't Leo and Piper convert their closet into a nursery earlier this season? Now it's back to a closet as we see when they change clothes.

5x11 The importance of being Phoebe

If Cole's apartment was protected by magic, how could he and Kaia go in and out of it (shimmering or whatever they do) but Leo couldn't? Maybe it was protected from good magic only, but still, if this is so, how did Piper's spell get into the apartment (a good spell), and how did Phoebe's powers get in and out of the apartment (good powers from a good witch)?
controls her powers. It has its upside and its downside. Regarding Cole's protection, if you'll notice he didn't
The Basement in "Is there a Woogy in the House" is dramatically differnet than the one we see in seasons 3 and 4, persumebly because they fixed it. But in this episode the basement is back in its "original" state.

After Phoebe has been knocked unconscious, Cole picks her up and puts her on the bed. When he goes to pick her up, Phoebe wraps her arms around his neck, but if she were really unconscious, her arms would have fallen limp by her side.

While Cole and Kaya are in the Penthouse with Phoebe unconcious on the floor, Phoebe's face is turned up, or at least sideways. When Cole goes to pick her up, her face is down towards the floor.

For a bail of $50,000, you'd only have to put up 10% collateral with a bondsman. It seems nuts to believe that the sisters don't have $5,000 in collateral - either the Grand Cherokee or Phoebe's recently purchased new sports car would be more than sufficient.

When Paige has her police photos taken, one shot shows her green vest thingy on one shoulder while another shot shows it on both shoulders. The shots are switched between many times in the scene and so it magically switches more than once.

How convenient that Phoebe immediately remembers the spell to ban the woogy man.

5x12 Centennial Charmed

After Paige sliced off the piece of flesh, why did Cole not simply transform his blood again as he did in 3x21 "Look who's barking".

Since orbing is a natural part of Paige having nothing to do with the Power Of Three, why couldn't she orb in the alternate reality. If it was because she was dead in that reality, then how could she gain restore the Power Of Three in that reality to vanquish Cole?

On Paige's tombstone, it reads "Paige Matthews. Born 1975. Died 2001." In Charmed Again (2), Sister Agnes mentions that Paige was born in 1977. BUT since it's an alternate reality, perhaps Paige could've been born in 1975 instead of 1977.

When Paige appears in the alternate reality in the back room of P3, the room looks well-kept and almost exactly like it did before in the real world (just did a little darker). But when Paige opens the door, which falls of its hinges, the club is a mess. Why was the back room so tidy while the rest of the club became so rundown?

A pretty strange thing in the alternate reality - if Paige hadn't joined Phoebe and Piper, then the source should still be alive, and Cole should still be on the top most wanted list in the underworld. He should be good as well...

When Cole comes home at the beginning of the episode the picture of him and Peobe is on the left hand side of the table and the box is on the right hand side. When Phoebe picks up the picture and puts it down on the table the box is now on the left hand side and she places the picture on the right hand side.

At the beginning of this episode, Leo and Paige orb to where Piper was hunting that demon guy, he kneels down at that man and Piper appears, she then freezes him, the scene goes to Piper and back at the demon who is now standing.

When Cole knocked Paige out the window, why didn't she just orb out of the air instead of falling into the water? She's done it before when Phoebe's unborn evil baby knocked her out the attick window and she orbed back in.

Why is Cole finally vanquished? Like Piper said, they thought they'd vanquished him twice before. Why didn't he go to the plain where vanquished demons go, like he did before?

How could Paige be born in 1975? In that 70's episode Patty was pregnant with phoebe in 1975.

5x13 Obsessions

When the piece of ceiling falls on Piper, in the close-ups she is covered in plaster debris with a big piece sitting on top of her head. In the long-shot there is little dust and debris and no plaster chunk on her head.

A legal wedding usually requires the couple, an official and a witness.

When Leo takes Jessica back to the Church and leaves with Paige, it is still day. When they get back to the manor it is night. Why did it take several hours to orb across town?

At the end when Leo knocks the dish off of the bar, Piper says that it's ok and they'll clean it up later. That would never happen - anyone could slip on one of the peanuts or cut themselves on the broken dish. It would be a lawsuit waiting to happen.

During Phoebe's photo shoot, she takes off her dress and then the photographer tells someone to turn the fans on. In the shot immediately before he mentions the fans, Phoebe's hair is already blowing in the wind.

Not a blooper but - although it was night when Piper was finished "cleaning" the house, wouldn't someone notice that suddenly there is a house missing in Prescott St.?

5x14 Dream spell

When Phoebe and Paige were at the campgrounds, Paige was knocked to the side and then the sandman and Phoebe were knocked down. Phoebe got dusted too much, the chainsaw murderer came to life, and Paige rolled in to orb them out. She rolled. in from the right, but before, she was knocked to the left side.

How come the lower demon killed the upper demon so fast?

After dealing with their dreams, when the Tracer Demon shows up Piper turns to blow him up, you can see she is clearly not pregnant, even thought she was a second ago.

When Paige goes into her dreams the second time, she has her srapon her shoulders, then when she bends down to pick up the baby, her strapis lower - on her arm, then when she holds the baby, the strap is back to where it was.

5x15 Special delivery

In 2x12 "Awakened," Piper clearly states that she hates hospitals, so why has she suddenly changed her mind? She is now intent on having the baby on the hospital, although everyone else wants the birth to occur at home.

When Paige orbs into Piper and Leo's bedroom the ruffles of her shirt are on the right side, but when her and Phoebe come downstairs to meet Piper they are on the left.

As recently as two episodes ago 5x13 Obsessions we saw that the house had a wall of trees behind the house. In this episode the same view is a clear shot of the city.

The Aurora Borealis is only _barely_ visible in Northern California. Additionally, the lights of San Francisco (a very large, very well lit up city), Oakland (ditto), and the rest of the greater SF Bay Area are so bright, they obscure most celestial objects and events. The girls would have had to travel north (probably to Sonoma County at minimum) if they wanted to see something in the night sky.

The elastic holding the horn on the "unicorn" is clearly visible in most scenes featuring the animal.

When Stanley begins to strangle Paige, you can tell it's not her - it is clearly a male stunt-double.

In the bar scene before the fight broke out. The sorcerer introduced the witches to a wizard. I thought wizards were extinct after the last one died in 4x19 "We're Off to See the Wizard"

5x16 Baby's first demon

Victor was listed on the family tree as "Victor Jones" instead of "Victor Bennett".

Although Patty and Grams both have their full first name on the family tree, Patricia and Penelope, respectively, Prue is listed on the tree as just "Prue" not "Prudence".

The baby is clearly a doll, when the hawker first attacks, and Piper picks it up, it's quite stiff and has the cape thingy over his head, but when the camera goes for the baby-close-up he's quite more vivid and his head isn't covered.

When the demon who is trying to sell his "perimi-o-tonic" which is supposed to increase your strength, yet it also changed his face and skin color.

5x17 Lucky Charmed

The Transamerica Building is oddly visible out the attic window (scene after Seamus' death). We seem to be a couple streets over (on Battery or Kearny, for example; I'm not positive which direction we're facing, but it seems we're looking mostly perpendicular to Montgomery Avenue). The attic also appears to be at equal elevation with (give or take) the 25th story of the pyramid. I cannot imagine where this perspective might be possible given San Francisco's geography and the fact that the girls live in a single-family dwelling on a flat residential street.

Since when has Phoebe been able to speak in her premonitions? Now she says the chant to summon the rainbow while in her premonition.

5x18 Cat House

In general, some parts of some of the scenes from the past were clipped for time, so some of the "memories" were shortened.

When Kit runs into the bathroom while Piper and Leo are showering, Phoebe runs after her to bring her out, but not only does she come out without her, but she also closes the door of the bathroom, trapping Kit inside.

When Paige is talking to Katrina, the necklace that she was wearing was not around her neck, but when she orbs in to help Phoebe in the fight, her necklace is back but her jacket is not (she left it behind).

In the flashback of Piper and Leo's shower scene, why was the door partially open? When the original episode aired this, the door was completely closed.

Why is Leo remembering Piper's dance from "Coyote Piper" as part of their good times?!? Didn't "she" knock him out concious a little earlier? And even if he remembers it from Piper due to the spell, why is that a happy time for him?

The American flag we see in the kitchen on the refrigerator during the bridal party sequence (as Paige is making her potion) wasn't there originally two years ago.


Paige: Evil? You were blonde.
Why is Paige surprised? Pheobe's hair colour is "blonde" during the first episodes of season 4 when Paige met her. This is clearly evident especially in the episode 4x04 "Enter the Demon"

5x19 Naughty nymphs

Todd Duffey (the satyr at the beginning) seems totally unable to lip sync along with the music - he's all over the place with his mouth.

As far as I could tell, the nymphs cavorted barefoot. When they transformed Paige into one of them, she was dancing in beige, wedge-heel sandals instead of being barefoot. Then when they were following Tull through the woods, she had on dark-colored sandals. Beyond the shoe change goof, Paige shouldn't have had footwear.

5x20 Sense and sense ability

When Piper freed Leo from water tank with her powers. When he was freed, his whole body was wet. But when he stands up again, his back was dry, but his front were wet.

At the end before Rose performs, Phoebe is drinking tea. Watch the tea bag string. It moves between shots.

In the shots with all three of them (Piper, Wyatt and the Crone) Wyatt's head is sticking out of his baby blanket. But in the shots of just Piper and Wyatt, the blanket is covering the back off his hea

5x21 Necromancing the stone

When Grams starts her man bashing rant, Leo points out she was married 4 times, but in 4x12 "Lost and Bound," Phoebe stated Grams had been married 6 times. In the 3x02 "Magic hour," Phoebe says that Grams was married 4 times. They should make up their minds.

Why exactly did Piper called for Paige and the begining? All Paige did was read a spell. You'd think Piper could do that on her own.

5x22 Oh my goddess, part 1

Piper and Phoebe talk about getting air conditioning for the manor. But in 3x05 "Sight Unseen" Cole turned on the air conditioning to help flush out the demon Troxa.

5x23 Oh my goddess, part 2

In 3x01 "The honeymoon's over", Piper and Leo come back from wherever the Elders live, and although only a day went by there, a month went by on Earth. How come when Leo, Chris, Piper, and the Titans are up there for so long, the same amount of time seems to go by on Earth?

The Elders decision to leave Chris were he is doesnt seem to make much sense. Wouldn't they realize that leaving someone from the future in the past could mess up the timeline even further?
