References to the Original Charmed

  • The Vortex Viribus is similar to the Nexus in the original show: a location of concentrated power that amplifies anyone's magical abilities. And like in the original, the chamber is located under the Vera Manor.
  • Medusa is featured in the episode. She appeared in the canon novel, Let Gorgons Be Gorgons. More similarities were her being a powerful witch of her era and had two older sisters who were also powerful. However, in the original series, Medusa turned out to be good; she was merely used by her evil sisters, who took advantage on the fact she was unfamiliar with the modern world, so the Halliwell sisters allowed her to live.

Production Notes

  • The episode was watched by 0.65 million U.S. viewers.
  • More than likely, this episode title can be a play on words of a a children's rhyme "Sticks and Stones" that persuades the child victim of name-calling to ignore the taunt, to refrain from physical retaliation, and to remain calm and good-living.
  • Lucy returns in this episode. She was last seen in You're Dead to Me.
  • Charity Callahan returns in this episode. She was last seen in Witch Perfect.
