Plot hole: When teenage Prue has run away with the demon, and Phoebe and Piper find her in the park, teenage Prue is 'killed'. Her sisters drive her home to get Leo to heal her, but shouldn't they have just been able to call to Leo to orb to them when Prue was first hurt, and heal her in the park, and save driving back to the Manor and risk Prue dying?
Plot hole: Piper is initially skeptical at Phoebe's theory that the Evil Enchantress could be Paige in a past life, because Paige lacks the Enchantress' ability to summon the elements. However, Piper knows that in Phoebe's past life she had a pyrokinetic power, which she does not have in the present.DavidK93
Plot hole: When Paige and Leo are talking in Leo's office at magic school, Paige compliments Leo for being such a good headmaster. She mentions that after being headmistress for a year, it's harder than it looks. If she became headmistress after they killed Gideon (i.e. when baby Chris is born) and she's been headmistress for a year, that would make Chris at least a year old. Chris is obviously not one year old just yet.
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)
Plot hole: Cole says Barbas can use his powers to become the Source, but in the episode "Womb Raider" they established that an aspiring Source needs to lay his hands on the Grimoire to become the source, which was hidden away by Leo in the Andes. (00:19:40)
Continuity mistake: Prue finds Brendan, as a warlock, over the corpse of Father Austin. He runs away and she pursues him. He insists that he "didn't hurt Father Austin. [He] found him like that." Prue counters, "Before or after you turned into a warlock?" His response is, "After. When I saw what [my brothers] did to him, I was crazed. The rage turned me into a warlock." So doesn't that mean that he found Father Austin before he turned into a warlock, not after? (00:17:55)DavidK93
Plot hole: We are told that in the world of the Charmed Ones, desires aren't real. When they are transported back to the real world, Wyatt is transported too, even though the real Wyatt was never really there to begin with.rockycm
Other mistake: After Piper freezes the first crime scene that Cole and Phoebe (aka Frankie and Lulu) have hit, Piper unfreezes Darryl by touching him but at the beginning of the the episode when Piper and Cole are touching the car that Piper froze, to stop it from exploding after a car crash, while trying to help the woman inside, the car never unfreezes. This is somewhat inconsistent through the entire show a lot of times they can unfreeze things by touching them and then a lot of times they can only unfreeze things by Piper using her pointer finger to either unfreeze a head or a foot or some other body part. (00:30:15)
Plot hole: Phoebe becomes an empath. But in Primrose Empath (S3:E6) Leo tells the sisters an empath is a mortal who has died and come back as an empath, so it wouldn't be a progression of a witch's powers like it is in this episode. Plus Phoebe isn't dead.brianjr0412
Continuity mistake: Piper and Leo both make comments about Leo's inability to self-heal now that he's a mortal. But in previous episodes, it's mentioned that Leo wasn't allowed to use his powers to heal himself.Cubs Fan
Continuity mistake: The only way any of the charmed ones can see the fairies is with the fairy dust, but in several other later seasons and episodes when the charmed ones need the magical community's help they can see the fairies without any help from fairy dust or a spell.
Continuity mistake: The first three episodes have zero continuity when it comes to Piper's love life. In Ep1 "Witch Trial" Piper is hooking up with the guy who is looking at the loan for P3. Then in Ep2 "Morality Bites" she is with Leo (presumably they have secretly been together for months as they discuss their many issues being able to talk when they're both so busy with magic crises and how Leo hasn't figured out how they can be together without clipping his wings). But by Ep3 "The Painted World" Piper and Dan are already together. They has been no discussion of Piper and Leo breaking up and zero mention of Piper and Dan getting together (in fact, the last time we saw Dan in Ep1, he and Phoebe were flirting pretty heavily). I am so confused and I do not at all remember these inconsistencies from when I first watched these episodes years ago. Were these shot and aired out of sequence or something?
