Oh My Goddess (1) - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: In 3-5 Sight Unseen, we can clearly see Cole turn the air conditioning very cold and open all the windows so that the Prue, Piper and Phoebe can see the invisible demon, and in season 2 when Prue is turned into a man Phoebe asks "did you fix the air conditioning?" But in this episode Phoebe asks Piper why they have never invested in air conditioning.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When Paige follows Phoebe into the kitchen and is trying to convince her that she is telling the truth, Phoebe's right earring is missing in the shots showing both women, but it is there when the shot changes to close ups of Phoebe. It is an awfully large earring to be hidden by her hair in the two-shot. (00:25:20)

Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Plot hole: Piper mentions that Grams banished the Necromancer "sixty years ago" at Patty's Wiccanning. Grams soon thereafter says that the Necromancer has had "almost seventy years" to regain his strength. However, Patty was born in 1950, and this episode aired on 5/4/03, at which time Patty's Wiccanning could not have been more than 53 years earlier.

A Witch in Time - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode "A Witch in Time," when Phoebe and Piper are going to Miles' work to get him for the first time, Phoebe runs up the steps to his work and she is wearing leather boots with a skinny heel. Then, when she and Piper are running to where the police shoot-out is, Phoebe is wearing tan Ugs. Then, when they get there and Piper freezes the scene and Phoebe is getting the bullets out of the air, she is wearing the leather boots again. (00:06:45)

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Plot hole: In 'Centennial Charmed' Paige orbs to another reality where she loses all her powers. Leo tells her the this is because she was never called as a witch in this world, but Paige had most of her powers before she was called because of her whitelighter blood, so she should retain these. Leo says that Paige has assumed the life of this reality's Paige, but then adds "...or at least the life she would have lived if she hadn't been killed". If alternate Paige had lived she would have had Whitelighter powers, even if she didn't know about them, so our Paige should also have them. (00:28:00)


Siren Song - S5-E4

Other mistake: When the siren gets the pole that was speared through her pulled out, there is only blood in the middle part of the pole. If it had really been pulled out of her, it would be bloody all the way along. (00:19:55)

A Witch's Tail (1) - S5-E1

Plot hole: The Sea Hag says at the start of the episode to Mylie that as an immortal being, only she can place the augur shell over her heart to give up her life. But at the end of the episode Necron magically places the shell onto Phoebe and it nearly sucks the life out of her. (00:03:20 - 01:14:55)

Suggested correction: Phoebe had become a mermaid due to the Charmed ones spell, therefore making her immortal for the time being.

Ok, so it still doesn't make sense then. If Phoebe is an immortal being, she should have to place the Auger shell over her own heart, as the Sea hag said.

Actually... I believe that it still was Phoebe's choice even though the demon places it on her hart. That's why he said something like "keep your word/honer our deal." If she didn't want to do it she could get the shell off her heart but then Piper would die.

The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Paige is telling the others she thinks Lydia is the one Cree was after, she says 'I think Lydia was the one who summoned that dust storm', but none of the sisters were present when the dust storm was summoned. They only arrived afterwards. (00:33:40)


A Witch's Tail (1) - S5-E1

Plot hole: In this episode, when Piper and Leo are preparing the nursery, Leo tells Piper he has been watching her her whole life, and she says "That's a little bit creepy". she acts as if she doesn't already know this but in episode 2-22 'Be Careful What You Witch For' Piper says, "You have been watching me my entire life". (00:04:45)

Siren Song - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Siren is being healed, you can see that she's just holding the pole next to her, when it's supposed to be going straight through her. (00:19:50)

Witches in Tights - S5-E5

Revealing mistake: The character Ramus (the elder) changes actor when Leo jumps and orbs to get him away from the attack of the Aggressor. The actor's stand-in is visible instead. (00:18:52)

Cole: Phoebe, I love you. I don't know what's going on but maybe I can help. Would you like me to kill someone for you?

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.
