Marisol Vera bound her daughters' powers when they each were born to protect them. Once they were old enough, she did the Power Unbinding Spell to awaken their powers, though it took three months before it happened.
- In the original show, the Charmed Ones' grandmother bound their powers for their protection. Their powers were not unbound until after she died.
- Unlike the original, if a power binding process was done, the powers could become lost forever if the caster was killed before unbinding the powers.
