The girls land in a secret location where they uncover more about the mystical world of the Elders... and community workspaces.

    • The Charmed Ones used this spell to stop the assassin from killing them. However, the assassin was able to resist the spell enough for it to not completely stop him.

  • Aura Stripping: The Elders granted the Command Center the ability to strip a witch's aura if they traveled through the portal leading to the center.

References to the Original Charmed

  • Rat Demons appeared in this episode. In the original series, Rat Demons were low-level demons that were able to transform into rodents. They were usually involved in money schemes, such as laundering, and were not to be trusted. Their ability to secrete acid from their mouths was utilized by Scabbar Demons.
  • The duplicate of Harry is later revealed to be the new series' interpretation of a Darklighter which, in the original series, were Whitelighter counterparts. Their primary goal was to kill Whitelighters in order to make good witches more vulnerable to the attack of evil.
  • Macy referenced "witchness protection." In the original series, this was the title of an episode.
  • As of this episode, the Charmed Ones are presumed dead and go into hiding. This was a major story arc in the eighth season of the original series.
  • Macy retaining her demonic powers after their powers were stripped resembled the season 6 episode, "The Power of Three Blondes", where Paige Matthews retained her Whitelighter powers after her witch powers were stolen by another witch.
