Phoebe has a premonition with a demon killing a man, and when the Halliwell sisters defend him, Prue recognizes the demon as a former high school sweetheart. The football player Tom Peters wounded his knee, and his demon-agent Mr. Kellman recruited him for a demon academy. Tom is in the last step to become a demon, and Prue proposes a fight in a wrestling ring controlled by the Source, disputing the Halliwell sisters' souls against Tom's. Meanwhile, Phoebe tells Piper first and Prue later that she did not vanquish Belthazor. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hit the mat

This episode doesn't seem to fit in charmed and seemed only done to draw in a new fan base. While the storyline is broken up into two parts connected they really don't follow or relate to one another. Sure you get plenty of action, but not in this complicity. The music to reflect It was the worst ever scored for the show in my opinion. It could've been another fun fluff extravaganza if it bothered to put though into the ending. Ron Pearlman is better used as a romantic figure instead of a tough guy.

Still I never like to trash this show and will say Tom's other scenes are magnificent, Phoebe's conscious catching to her provided nice drama and exploring the demon world was interesting for the most part. The special effects weren't bad and even added a creepy environment spots.

While not the best episode, its worth watching every one to better understand the mythology or the sisters arches. This may entertain others, but not my cup of tea.
