With the firing of Shannen Doherty, Charmed needed to transition from the original P3 to the new P3. Charmed Again, Part 1 saw the Charmed Ones reconstituted as Paige finds her way to the manor and to her half-sisters. "Charmed Again," as Grams gleefully intoned.
We know from the opening of Charmed Again that Prue died as a result of the attack by Shax on Dr. Griffiths. He, too, died as well. Piper was just barely rescued by Leo. What remains unexplained is why Leo could not heal both Prue and Piper, let alone explain why he was delayed in returning to the material world in order to effectuate his healing powers. Likewise, it is left to viewers to guess how Cole and Phoebe made their escapes, especially when we are told that the Source intends to have his cake and vanquish them too!
The alternative reality presented in Centennial Charmed also points to a gap in our understanding. Who killed Paige in this alternative universe? And how did Cole and Phoebe "change" sides?
