  • Dr. Williamson: Ever since Piper miraculously recovered from a deadly terminal disease – Oroya fever ("Awakened") – Dr. Curtis Williamson had been researching an antidote for the same. Whilst injecting chimps with blood samples taken from the sisters, he accidentally injected himself with a complete combination of their bloods, in the process gaining their powers. Realizing his abilities, Dr. Williamson began stealing organs (from criminals) to give to waiting organ transplant patients. Being only a mortal, in the end, he couldn't handle the witches' powers, and they drove him mad.

Trivia

  • The episode's title is most likely a reference to Prue's power Astral Projection, and what the sisters call her when using this power: "Astral Prue." This is also because the monkey first seen was the one with Prue’s power.
  • Dr. Williamson previously appeared in the episode "Awakened".
  • The three monkeys in this episode each cover their eyes, ears and mouths as in the see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil phrase. This is later explored in the episode Sense and Sense Ability.
  • In this episode, "mortals" (including monkeys) are able to gain witches' powers via blood transfusion. Reasons why demons did not gain witches' powers by blood are probably because, one, they don't know this method, or because demon's blood repels witches blood.
  • Here, it is also hinted that the powers of the Charmed Ones are in their blood and not in their soul. This makes the episode Pardon My Past questionable, wherein P. Russel (Phoebe's past life) used her power of pyrokenesis when she tried to kill the present Prue and Piper.
  • Prue gets a new car, a black 2000 BMW X5.

Astral projection (or astral travel) is an interpretation of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) achieved either awake or via lucid dreaming, deep meditation, or the use of psychotropics. ...
