After their fake funeral, hosted by father Victor, the sisters magically assume permanent new appearances, hoping for normal, carefree lives, but the ploy also discontinues Phoebe and Piper's careers and relationships. Paige has neither, but her white lighter half can't be turned off, so she must respond to danger incurred by an overconfident witch, none other than Billie Jenkins. Agent Keyes suspects the sisters aren't dead and pretends to have abandoned their case, in fact leaving agent Murphy to observe the house discreetly. Hell has been decapitated, but demon Paul Hass poses as a real estate agent to attend the funeral, wanting the house as a magical power base, and assembles a group of followers, hoping Victor won't be a match while Wyatt is asleep.

Still Charmed and Always Funny
22 September 2007 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of the series, despite a rough seventh season, I was excited that "Charmed" got picked up for an eighth season. Even though season seven didn't provide the dramatic punch of prior seasons, the series is always enjoyable simply due to the interactions of the three sisters. Even the worst episode of "Charmed" is still completely enjoyable because of the quippy dialogue so excellently delivered by the lead actresses.

But due to CW's inability to let "Charmed" know if it would have a season eight or not, it was forced to have a season seven finale that had to work both as a series and season finale. The final choice was to make the sisters fake their death so they could stop worrying about demons always coming after them.

This created a horrible problem for season eight – it made the sisters boring. They had limited screen time, even more limited fighting scenes and rarely interacted with each other. Add to that the god awful addiction of Billy to the cast and at times, season eight was just painful.

Oddly enough, some of the best 'classical' "Charmed" moments in this episode wasn't between the leading actresses (due to a lack of interaction between them), but instead between two guest stars who were playing the disguised Piper and Phoebe.

Of all the body switches that have occurred on the series that have led to multiple actresses (and actors) playing the sisters, the top performance belongs to Dorian Brown for her perfect portrayal of Piper in the teaser of this episode. There were moments where she even sounded exactly like Combs. A close second was Wilkinson as Phoebe, and the exchange between these two in the opening was the best part of the episode.

For reasons I can't begin to understand, they actually changed the sisters' forms early in the episode and had new actresses in the roles who never came close to acting like the lead actresses.

Oh, and did I mention Billy? When she showed up, it was all downhill...
