Charmed: Season 5
Frequently Bought Together

Season 5 ties up a lot of loose ends, heralds some major shifts in the show's running narrative, and ushers in a couple of new characters. One of the latter is Piper's baby by husband Leo (Brian Krause), the angelic Whitelighter whose role as an emissary of the heavenly Elders changes dramatically in the two-part finale, "Oh, My Goddess!" Before that happens, however, Phoebe must contend with the reappearance of her husband, the demon Cole (Julian McMahon), who is determined to win her back by proving his evil nature is under control. As usual, all the sisters must use the Power of Three to protect a number of vulnerable mortals, and even some immortals. Among these are a mermaid whose immortality is sought by a greedy demon, several wood nymphs frolicking in the streets of San Francisco, and married men targeted by a hot Siren with a killer kiss. Season highlights include "Happily Ever After," in which characters from multiple fairy tales come to life; "Lucky Charmed," a fun story introducing a demon-vanquishing Leprechaun; and "Sense and Sense Ability," a clever drama in which Phoebe goes deaf, Piper becomes blind, and Paige turns mute as the result of a wicked witch's spell. The aforementioned finale sees all three sisters officially acknowledged as the goddesses they truly are. But it also introduces a new, major character, Chris (Drew Fuller), who seems benevolent but may very well be a wolf in sheep's clothing. We shall see. --Tom Keogh

Season 5 stills retains it's sense of realism with the added drama and wit that made CHARMED a huge success, but for me this series lost that special something that made it a must watch programme, though it picks it up as it nears the end.
A Witch's Tail (1)
A Witch's Tail (2)
Phoebe is turned into a mermaid, giving her a cold heart and she runs away from her problems. Paige struggles balancing her charmed one life with her work life. Pregnant Piper begins to suffer from panic attacks.

A Siren lures Phoebe and Cole, leaving Piper and Paige to save them. Piper's unborn baby swaps her powers with Leo's.
Witches In Tights
A demon is turned into a comic book character so he can steal the elder's powers, leaving the sisters no choice but to don masks and catsuits to stop him.
The Eyes Have It
Phoebe discovers a demon which steals the eyes of gypsies. Piper wants to see a regular doctor, but Leo is concerned about being exposed.
Sympathy For The Demon
Here we see the return of Barbas (the demon of fear) who once again plunges the sisters into their darkest fears.Read more ›
I may be in the minority here...but I find Season 5 one of the best. I personally think the show improved with the introduction of Paige in Season 4...and feel like her seasons took the show to a whole new level. Her struggles are profound, and fascinating to watch: being a Witch/Whitelighter, rising above the spectre of Prue in the eyes of her newfound sisters, and learning to balance being both a magical being and living in the mortal world as a Social Worker. I REALLY love her character.
But, with Season 5 particularly...I loved the introduction of more fantasy-inspired elements, the nymphs, mermaids, leprechauns and such...they gave the season a much needed lift...especially considering how dark Season 4 was...particularly the last half, with Phoebe's Dark Wedding to Cole/The Source of All Evil and her demon pregnancy...effective, but dark.
Loved the episodes regarding Piper and Leo having a child...very touching. I can't say enough about this season (or any of the seasons for that matter, they are all unique and special in their own way). I highly recommend this to any fan of Charmed, or just great fantasy-entertainment.

I have always enjoyed fantasy and all of the Charmed series met my strict standards for that genre. There is a nice mix between the fantastic and the mundane.Published 2 months ago by Denise Wels

|The Cover Artwork||
Agreed. I wish they had gone with that too, especially to give the box sets more variety. They already did blue for season 3.

|does prue appear in this season||
Yes we get to "see" her again in the show entitled "Cat House". She appears as a dog from the time Paige appears Prue as Prue is gone for good unless she comes back for the series finale in season eight, Yup this year.
