SHIVA AND SHAKTI
Paige is bored as a stay-at-home aunt, while Phoebe is frustrated with how much time her job is taking up. Neither Piper nor Leo are dealing well with the death of their adult son, Chris. Piper is scared to even take her children outside for fear of what could happen to them, while Leo is completely obsessed with hunting down and vanquishing Barbas. On the strange advice of a demonic disembodied head, Barbas goes after baby Chris just to mess with Leo. Phoebe and Paige convince Piper and Leo to go to a friend's Hindu wedding to get out and relax, but Piper and Leo end up being possessed by Hindu gods. Piper becomes Shakti, the mother goddess with six arms, and Leo becomes Shiva, the great destroyer. Phoebe and Paige are pleased to see that this possession makes Leo and Piper, who are still aware who they are, enormously attracted to one another, but after reading the Book of Shadows the two sisters realize that they have to keep this godly couple apart, because their love could destroy the world. They send Leo, with his "great destroyer" powers, after Barbas again, despite the fact that the Elders are worried that Leo is a danger to himself and others. The Elders' fears are founded when Barbas tricks Leo into killing another Elder, Zola. Paige breaks the spell on Piper and Leo, excising the gods, and Piper comforts a distraught Leo while Paige and Phoebe take care of Barbas once and for all. Inspector Sheridan, now with an unwilling Darryl as her partner, continues to persecute the Charmed Ones trying to figure out what's going on and what happened to adult Chris. Phoebe decides to take a sabbatical from work, and her ghost-writer replacement turns out to be a surprisingly attractive man named Leslie. The demonic disembodied head speaks to Leo. Paige finds out that the magic school is being shut down now that Gideon is dead, and decides that she should be the one to save it.
#2 The Bare Witch Project: Aired Sunday, September 19, 2004

She tries to convince Leslie to answer her advice request about breast-feeding in public, and Leslie asks her to please stop hovering over his shoulder. Piper is worried about Leo and his obsession with vanquishing every demon he can find, and tries to convince her ex-husband to spend more time with his sons. While Paige is trying to convince the Elders not to close down the magic school, a bored student accidentally conjures up Lady Godiva on her horse and a demon that feeds on repression. Paige tries to figure out how to get Lady Godiva back to her own time so that she can finish her ride, while the demon takes away everyone's repression, starting violent fights all over the place. The Charmed Ones manage to send both Godiva and the demon back in time, but the demon kills Godiva, basically deleting the history of women's liberation. The Charmed Ones re-conjure up Godiva and the demon, but the demon feeds off of Piper's repression and she lets loose on how frustrated she is with Leo. Finally, the Charmed Ones tell Leo to let the demon feed off him, and Leo's enormous amount of repression overloads the demon and he dies. Also, Leo is able to get his frustration out, explaining how he is jealous of demons and their ability to kill without guilt. After Godiva is sent back to her own time to complete her famous ride, Phoebe takes a page out her book and rides naked on a horse to make her point about breast-feeding. Leslie decides to answer her letter. The floating green head continues to haunt Leo. The Elders agree to keep the magic school open, and tell Paige that she can run it.

She makes a fool of herself accepting the award, and is saved by Leslie. Paige kisses a cute student at the magic school who is 21 years old. Leo consults a Seer who shows him that the demon that is after Wyatt looks just like Leo. Sure enough, the demon attacks Wyatt even at the magic school, and is revealed to have Leo's face. Grams worries that Leo is evil and is attacking Wyatt, and doesn't want to reverse the sibling rivalry spell so as to save adult Piper from having to deal with this possibility. Victor thinks this is a bad idea and insists that they call in Patty to help make this decision. Patty agrees with Victor, so Grams takes off in a huff and Patty casts the spell that brings the Charmed Ones back to their normal selves. With help from their parents, the Charmed Ones realize that this demon is just a figment of Wyatt's imagination, and he is punishing himself for causing his parents' separation. When they finally assure Wyatt that he's not at fault for anything, the demon disappears. Grams returns and Chris has his wiccanning.

A VISION OF UTOPIA
The Avatars insist that Leo protect the Seer (guest star Charisma Carpenter, "Angel") because she has information that can help them destroy the demons. The Seer shares with Phoebe a vision of a future in which there are no demons, leading the sisters to consider the possibility that the Avatars might be good and allowing Leo the opportunity to admit he is an Avatar.

Phoebe has a premonition of an idyllic future when Wyatt is 8, Chris is 6, and her daughter (insert the name of a past female character many of you thought would be Piper's kid here) is 4.

#11 Ordinary Witches: Aired Sunday, January 16, 2005
POWER SWITCHING SPELL
In this episode the demon resurrected from the previous episode is now trying to organize the underworld, under his reign. He now sees that all is as he thinks it should be and when a couple of his advisors tell him that he should kill the Avatars he states that they are no threat. He says that The Charmed Ones are because they have the powers that The Avatars need in order to make the plan they have in mind existent. Paige is off with Kyle trying to find out what really went on with his parents only to have Darryl and the sisters find something out about Kyle that makes him suspicious (his alliance with the Seer). Zankou goes out to execute his plan, meanwhile at the manor Phoebe is still shocked from the events that happened the previous day (previous episode) in which she saw the idealistic future and then tells Piper about it. Phoebe then decides, along with Piper, to switch powers so that Piper can see it for herself. Only when they switch powers they are attacked and they are defenseless, very A-lá Charmed and Dangerous. Leo still has not told about himself being an Avatar. This promises to be a great episode possibly the best this season.
#12 Extreme Makeover: World Edition: Aired Sunday January 23, 2005
This is a play on the T.V. Series Extreme Makeover and in this episode the Avatars are trying to manifest their plans on the world and they are trying to change the future of the world including The Charmed Ones. Leo helping may allow this to be possible but seeing as how changing the future changes the world this causes the entire world to change as well. Though not much of this episode is revealed a couple of spells and acts allow for the world makeover to take effect and different doesn’t always mean better.
#13 Charmageddon: Aired Sunday January 30, 2005
THE BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL
This is a play on the Biblical War that in Latin means “end of the world or End of All”. Though no information has been released on this episode I will speculate and say that maybe the episode deals with a great battle between a force of incredible good (The Charmed Ones with the help of Zankou) versus and force of evil (Avatars Demons), even though it has been stated that the Avatars are not good nor evil the things they are doing is shifting the balance of good and evil and maybe this will lean them more into the power of evil than the power of being neutral, I think that the episode will be great and will be a great way to close the first half of the season.
#14 Carpe Demon: Aired Sunday February 13, 2005

In the 150th episode, which is scheduled to air in April, Cole's spirit will meet Piper's spirit in the cosmic space between life with death, helping reunite her with Leo. If all goes well, Phoebe's faith in love just might be restored. "CHARMED has had a loyal fan base since its record-setting debut on The WB," Mr. Janollari said. "It is fitting that we are able to give these viewers the bonus of adding one of the show's most popular characters for this milestone episode."
For all those who do not know this is the first in a series of episodes that are going to be taking Charmed in a more series finale type ending for the possible Series finale this coming May, for those who may not have heard Brad Kern wrote to a site that this is quite possible the last season of Charmed an preparing for this he decided to start closing loose ends and start making possible endings for the show that is why we are do the whole utopia thing in these episodes, Cole returns in the 150th episode of Charmed a lost soul who meets Piper in the after-life and gives many of the characters in the cast hope for a new tomorrow, from what I have read about the episode and part of the script I would place this episode with some of the season three and season four high ranking episodes such as All Heel Breaks Loose , Charmed Again and Charmed and Dangerous.

As Phoebe, Paige and Darryl search for Leo, Drake (guest-star Billy Zane) does one last good deed before his time is up. Michael Grossman directed the episode written by Jeannine Renshaw.
