What can I say? This was such a good way to end Charmed. The show brought back all the favorites and gave fans some closure by showing us the future world of the Charmed ones. There characters were so well portrayed by the actresses (Holly Marie Combs, Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano) that they made the characters their own, gave them identifiable funny quirks and great personalities.

The eight season does not disappoint. With the addition of a new character. At the end of Charmed - The Complete Seventh Season, the Charmed ones faked their death. Now they must deal with the guilt of not fighting s well as with the responsibility of training a new witch, Billie (played by Kaley Cuoco), who is also Paige's new charge. The season progresses as the Charmed ones reveal they are alive, deal with the repercussions of faking their deaths and settle their personal and work lives.

Although I don't think that the "Ultimate Power" was very convincing (they did fight the source of all evil!!!! how can 2 girls and an already defeated Triad win over them?!), the plot was pretty well developed.

The character of Billie is very interesting. She may be a combination of many characters all rolled into one. She shares Prue's power of telekinesis (and possibly a variation of Prue's astral projection), and Wyatt's power of projection. She is pretty powerful indeed. Yet, she is a bit gullible and believed her sister Christy when she accused the Charmed ones. Still, her character was a good and fun addition to the show.

It was a good time to end Charmed, they had explored every avenue, every storyline and destroyed thousands of demons; honestly, they have done it all.

Wiki

Season eight ofCharmedbrings the story of the Halliwell sisters to a satisfying conclusion, but not without a lot of bumps on the road for the witchy trio. The season begins with Paige (Rose McGowan), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano)--exhausted after years of magical responsibility for protecting the mortal world and fighting off demons--pretending to be dead and hiding behind new appearances. (The characters, when seen in mirrored reflections or through the eyes of others, are played by different actresses.) The gambit works smoothly for awhile, until each of the sisters begins missing aspects of her old life and feeling a sense of responsibility for protecting the innocent. Meanwhile, a gaggle of restless, young demons suspect that the Halliwells aren’t really dead at all, and are out to prove it. While fending off new demonic plots to take over the sisters’ San Francisco home and seize control of a school of magic, Piper and Phoebe’s father, Victor (James Read), takes care of Piper and Leo’s kids at the near cost of his own life. Also, Phoebe falls for a sculptor (Jason Lewis) early in the season and Cupid (Victor Webster) himself later on; Paige considers a career in law enforcement; and a newcomer arrives on the scene: Billie (Kaley Cuoco), a young witch with a flashy, Buffy-like style as demon-slayer. Billie’s story provides a narrative backbone toCharmed: The Final Season. Powerful but untutored, Billie reluctantly becomes ...
