The Charmed Legacy Wiki

Housed in the Halliwell Family's the Book of Shadows, To vanquish a ghost and return him to his rest is a rather risky potion and spell to be used in order to vanquish an evil spirit. It requires the potion maker who wishes to eliminate the evil ghost to imbibe the potion causing their heart to stop immediately. Once stopped, the witch will have only four minutes to successfully recite the banishing spell sending the spirit to rest; the witch must be revived with CPR within those four minutes to avoid serious brain damage.

Prue Uses the Potion[]

After Charmed One Phoebe Halliwell witnessed the evil spirit, Jackson Ward hop in the body of a tour guide in order to escape his prison cell on Alcatraz, she rushed back to Halliwell Manor where she and her sister Prue devised a plot requiring a potion to lure Jackson Ward to the Manor. Prue then located the entry to vanquish a ghost and began creating the potion. To Phoebe's displeasure, Prue ended up being the one to imbibe the potion.

Just as Prue drank the potion, Jackson appeared and knocked Phoebe out. Prue then collapsed to the floor and her spirit emerged from her body; she began to recite the spell and as Jackson began to be engulfed in flames, Andy Trudeau arrived and began performing CPR on Prue, causing her spirit to return to her body. But just as Jackson thought he would be able to attack Andy, Prue called out, warning Andy and he prevented the Attack. Prue's spirit then fully emerged and she recited the spell with all her might, causing the evil spirit to be engulfed in flames.
