Pre-Witched - S3-E17

Plot hole: One of the sisters asks why the familiar doesn't just jump in front of a bus 5 times, another responds with "we're the only ones strong enough to kill him." If they are the only ones strong enough to kill him, then how come two scenes later he falls on a knife during a fight with Phoebe and dies? If a knife can kill him then it doesn't make sense that he seeks out the charmed ones.

Primrose Empath - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Prue was talking with the shut-in and the security guard comes up and knocks on the door you can see the the chain is on the door. When he knocks again and says he is coming in and tries to open the door the chain is off.

Suggested correction: I was thinking the same, but it's possible she thought he was an ancestor/past life of Cole. When she visited her own past life, she recognized everyone there because of their "souls" so maybe she thought the same with him. Although you'd think they'd acknowledge that a little.

The Honeymoon's Over - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The timeline in the episode is inconsistent. Right after the first courtroom scene, we see the three sisters at home, and Phoebe says that "Cole was an angel in that courtroom yesterday." Later, Cole says that he regrets the criminal being let go, "today." But they are talking about the same events.

Sleuthing With the Enemy - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Phoebe throws the potion at Cole's coat, the vial doesn't shatter, even though it sounds like it. Watch closely, and you'll see the purple, unbroken vial bounce off the coat and away out of shot without any of the potion touching the coat.

Phoebe

Sin Francisco - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Prue talks to Piper after stopping her phone conversation, she tells her that "the Sin Balls work a lot faster than [they] thought. Once infected, the victim only has a few hours before it drives them to total self-destruction." However, this is almost verbatim what was written in the Book of Shadows. It could be easily read by the viewing audience when the book entry was shown. So all three sisters should already know this.

Coyote Piper - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: Prue knocked Piper unconscious in the cat fight (after the Coyote Dance), and asked Justin to carry her to the car. But when he is apparently lifting Piper up from the floor, you see Piper standing up by herself.

Magic Hour - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: In the attic when the sisters are talking about the "rutabaga," some of the shots of Piper are reversed, her "broken" eyebrow is on the wrong side.

Answer: That was a mistake in the series.

Also, the episode is called 'Babies First Demon' and this alone tells us that it's Wyatt's first time in the field (so to speak) and as the sisters say, they've done a good job of clearing up their own magical messes so far. Nobody really knows how advanced Wyatt's powers are, or will become. That's why the cleaners appear, to nip things in the bud. The Cleaners didn't want to chance that the sisters could clean Wyatt's magic up, just incase they couldn't. Therefore intervening themselves, just in case.

Chosen answer: When the cleaners first surface in season 6 it is mentioned that usually the girls have been able to clean up their own messes (as seen in season 3 episode 22 when Phoebe turns back time thus concluding in the death of Prue).

Answer: Because they wanted them to fix their own mistakes.
