This is a truly wonderful episode that begins a long overdue debate among the Charmed Ones about the nature of evil. Paige, as always, stands alone as she proclaims that just because a child, in this case the offspring of a mortal and a manticore, has demonic roots does not mean that it will become a demon. Nurture is more important than nature reasons Paige. Chris, of course, demurs. He wants the Charmed Ones to vanquish the baby immediately. He champions this point of view not simply because this baby could be the threat to baby Wyatt, but because, in his view, demons everywhere deserve to die. Piper and Phoebe are more vacillating. Though they don't accept Paige's "extreme" point of view, neither Piper nor Phoebe can simply vanquish a baby. So far, in their view, the baby has not posed a threat to baby Wyatt. Indeed, baby Wyatt has not even used his protection shield. On the contrary, baby Wyatt seems amused and pleased by his companion. Moreover, Piper especially has difficulty in accepting that a baby has to die, no matter if it is demonically d**ned.
