Charmed - Midnight Rendezvous 

I'm torn. I liked the episode, but I'm frustrated at the continuance of the dilemmas around Leo being an elder and therefore supposed to break his earthly ties, but he wasn't really "suppposed" to become an elder and now he's been tricked once again into thinking he needs to separate himself from his loved ones. Whitelighters aren't "supposed" to get involved with their charges, let alone marry them, but the Elders made an exception in their case. Why does Leo believe that the "rules" have to apply so strictly once again, without regard for their overwhelmingly true love?

I do feel vindicated, however, by Gideon's having a hidden agenda. I KNEW his behavior in "The Legend of Sleepy Halliwell" was strange and ill-explained at the time!

What's going to happen as fetal Chris develops and is born? Will adult Chris accompany Piper to her ultrasounds and check himself out? After he's born, will adult Chris babysit himself? How will this affect Wyatt? His little brother is also his big brother. He's no longer the oldest child but the middle child. Will Chris still end up dating Bianca? Will older Chris be jealous? And why is Wyatt the one with all the special power foci? Chris has the same Charmed One and Whitelighter for parents. In fact, his dad was an elder but Wyatt's was a basic Whitelighter. Of course, Original Chris' dad wasn't an elder, but Reconstituted Chris' dad is. Oof.

Hated, hated, hated the jacket-blouse combo Phoebe was wearing. But I like Paige's new hair color.
