Storyline

The Council of evil beings assigns a Genie to trick the Halliwell sisters with three wishes and make them vulnerable to the Killer of witches Dragon Warlock. When Phoebe accidentally rubs the magic lamp left in front of their house, the Genie grants one wish for each sister, but Leo advises that people are usually deceived and harmed by genies. However, the sisters accidentally express their innermost desires: Piper wishes that Dan moves on with his life; Prue to have the passion of the first love again; and Phoebe to have an active power. Consequently Dan becomes an old man; Prue becomes seventeen years old again and without magic powers; and Phoebes starts to fly. Without Prue, the Halliwell sisters become vulnerable to the attack of the Dragon Demon. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Three Wishes and a Dragon Warlock
24 March 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Council of evil beings assigns a Genie to trick the Halliwell sisters with three wishes and make them vulnerable to the Killer of witches Dragon Warlock. When Phoebe accidentally rubs the magic lamp left in front of their house, the Genie grants one wish for each sister, but Leo advises that people are usually deceived and harmed by genies. However, the sisters accidentally express their innermost desires: Piper wishes that Dan moves on with his life; Prue to have the passion of the first love again; and Phoebe to have an active power. Consequently Dan becomes an old man; Prue becomes seventeen years old again and without magic powers; and Phoebes starts to fly. Without Prue, the Halliwell sisters become vulnerable to the attack of the Dragon Demon.

The last episode of the second season is certainly on of the best of this season. The story has funny moments, mainly when Genie is participating. In the end, the sisters learn a lesson about how to achieve their desires. My vote is eight.
