  • This episode could have been a decent one had Jeannine Renshaw considered critical aspects from previous episodes. While this show is not strong with its use of continuity and tends to contradict itself will things such as birthdays and such, this one had more serious errors that should have been avoided. While I assume the demon who resurrected this Source came somehow reanimate demons that were previous annihilated in the Waste Land, bringing back him back was a stupid thing for the demons as his powers were stripped from him during his vanquish in season four's "Charmed and Dangerous," it would not be threat for the Charmed Ones and thus, it makes the entire episode anti-climactic. The other severe issue with this episode is Jeannine Renshaw, the continuity editors, Rose McGowan, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Brian Krause and any others involved with this show for not catching Paige's inquiry about how The Source was vanquished the last time to her sister, despite the fact that she was there all three times. If this was a line meant for Billie, I can understand why it was there but since she didn't say it, it shouldn't have been included at all. It's just sloppy for this show to do such a thing.
