8x02 Malice in Wonderland
This episode will feature Phoebe narrating à la Sex and the City. Per Piper's suggestion,
Phoebe pursues Dex. She also ponders on her future child (which she saw in her vision quest). Haas and his gang, including
a female demon named Black Heart, take possesion of the remains of Magic School. Haas still isn't sure the Charmed Ones are
dead, which is why he has Black Heart lure teenagers to him by using the "Alice in Wonderland" tale in the hope it will force
the sisters out of hiding if they are indeed alive. Billie is pursuing demons and missing teens. Paige gets arrested by a
cop and while talking with the officer, she discovers that maybe becoming a cop could be an option for her... There are electricity
problems at P3. The sisters are still posing as Julie, Jenny and Jo Bennet. Leo is also in this episode.
8x03 Run, Piper, Run
The Charmed Ones will be joined this season by Kaley Cuoco, star of the hit comedy
“8 Simple Rules.” Cuoco will play Billie, a young witch under the tutelage of Phoebe, Piper and Paige. Also on
Charmed, a handsome new face will be conjured up when Jason Lewis (who played Smith, Samantha's gorgeous boy toy in “Sex
And The City”) guest stars in a six-episode arc as Dex, an artist who has admired Phoebe from afar but never worked
up the courage to ask her out. Now, Phoebe tries to form a relationship with Dex – especially after she has a premonition
that she will marry him. Source: The WB
No Mark McGrath on Charmed. They say he can't do it with his Extra job. Jason Lewis is the replacement.

8x01 Glamouring girls
The sisters and Leo cast a spell so that only their loved ones can see their true
identities. Everyone else will see them differently and believe they are the Charmed Ones' cousins, Julie, Jenny and Jo Bennet.
The new order of demons mentioned earlier are named the Young Turks.
10 July 2005:
The episode opens with a wake at the manor. Victor greets the mourners. The sisters are still morphing in order not
to be uncovered. Victor is overwhelmed by all of this but the sisters remind him they are alive and free. Paul Haas, a darkly
handsome man in his late 20’s, is at the manor and starts chatting with Victor asking if there was ever an official
cause of death, if the police found Leo, etc. He seems to be interested in the manor as well… In the Underworld, a new
generation of demons (in their 20s with rock star looks), rejoices when they learn the sisters are dead as no one, except
other demons, will be able to stop them now. They want to establish a foothold in the mortal world and what better foothold
then the manor? Agent Keyes is ready to go back to D.C. even though he admits the case isn’t really closed. He has Agent
Murphy stay behind to keep an eye on things. An Elder visits Victor to talk about Wyatt and Chris. Victor is in charge of
P3 but it seems Piper is somehow working there too. Elise, leprechauns, Little Wyatt, and Leo appear in the episode. It seems
Mark McGrath’s character will be named Dex and will be in this episode. Kaley Cuoco's character seems to be named Billie,
and if we are not mistaken about her character, she will be in this episode.
29 June 2005:
"8 Simple Rules" star Kaley Cuoco will next tackle the rules of witchcraft on the WB Network's "Charmed."
The actress is joining the cast of the veteran drama as a regular next
season, playing a young witch under the tutelage of the Charmed ones.
30 May 2005:
New girl in town
At season's end, the Charmed Ones -- Piper, Phoebe and Paige
- had their slates wiped clean and were transformed into new versions of themselves (with different actresses), able to now
live in anonymity without fear of their magical powers being discovered. Since all three original stars are contracted for
one more year, Kern faces the challenge of restoring the sisters. Also, because of the budget, they must stay in the now-deserted
Halliwell mansion. "Can't afford to rebuild," Kern says. "They will stay in the house, one way or another. I don't want to
get out of this cheaply. I think the audience would be upset, and I don't blame them. I don't want to use memory dust; I don't
want to use the cleaners; I don't want to cast spells. They're going to have to get out of this one authentically, and I think
that'll be more rewarding for the audience." New additions this year include Sugar Ray frontman and "Extra" host Mark McGrath.
Kern isn't quite sure what to do with him yet, but he hopes to make him a new love interest for Phoebe. "The challenge," Kern
says, "is to make him different from any other love interest we've had for her before." Although adding McGrath was not Kern's
idea, he says, "Obviously, with single women, you need single men. So when they say 'Mark McGrath,' I say 'No problem.' I'll
find a way." There'll also be a new girl in town. "We're going to be meeting a new witch in the season as well," Kern says.
"She will be driving the girls crazy. Who knows, maybe she'll take off, and there'll be a ninth season."
24 May 2005:
For those who worried about whether Holly, Alyssa and Rose will be in season 8 - their current contracts include season 8 so they will return. It is unknown at this point if Brian
and Dorian will return as well.
The first episode will be written at the end of June or early July, first spoilers can
be expected end July or August.
The power of the Halliwell sisters has entranced audiences for 7 seasons, but
next year, their lives will be charmed in unimaginable ways. Piper, Paige and Phoebe have always been
able to defeat the forces of darkness and still have time to buy the cutest cropped pants.
But now they will encounter
their greatest nemesis: a demon smart enough to expose them and ruthless enough to disrupt their overnight dates. With the
police closing in on their bewitching identities, the Charmed Ones can depend only on themselves for survival. But the challenge
to conceal their calling is about to prove impossible.

First season 8 spoilers
Returning for its eighth season, "Charmed," starring Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan
and Holly Marie Combs, has been a success story for The WB from day one. Sure to shake things up for the Charmed Ones, actor
and "Extra" host Mark McGrath will join the cast next season.
Taking a comedic turn at 9:00, Sundays will feature back-to-back
episodes of the increasingly popular sketch comedy show, "Blue Collar TV," starring Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry
the Cable Guy.
"'Charmed' is appointment television for millions of fans who love the show's combination
of danger and humor and have become attached to these three young women," said Mr. Janollari. "'Blue Collar TV, ' has gained
amazing traction this year, and we think this show is just beginning to build on its loyal fan base. Moving the show to Sundays
is a perfect counter-programming move in this competitive time period."
