More Preview Pages - Charmed #2

ComicBookResources has a new preview of Charmed #2 including pages 2,3,4 & 5.

  • The Halliwell Sisters – Piper, Phoebe, and Paige – are the Charmed Ones. Together, they alone have access to the greatest source of pure magic the world has ever known: The Power of Three. But now that their eldest sister Prue has been resurrected, a strange magic threatens to tear them apart.
  • After being hunted by Gaxageal, the only survivor of an ancient race of demons called the Old Ones, the Charmed Ones have again triumphed over evil. However, another threat lurks in the darkness. Two low-level demons, Fritz and Valen, seek a weapon with the ability to destroy souls in order to finally kill the Halliwells and those they love.

    What about the Necromancer in S5? And those demons who steal people's eyesight who came back somehow in S3 Halloween's episode? And Barbas?

    Hm... I don't know if the demons-have-no-souls-theme became a permament aspect in the mystery of "Charmed". Sometimes they screwed things up or forgot some rules.
    But the Necromancer has no soul I think. He only turns into a ghost. The Grimlocks (the demons who steal people's eyesight) just came back because of Halloween, a gate between life and death. And Barbas has no soul. But he's fear, and fear never dies...

    We saw in S4 finale that vanquished demons fall into the Wasteland explode and then the Beast feeds on whatever is left which is powers and essence I think. So how did Necromancer turn into a ghost? Or Grimlocks returned? Shouldn't they be devoured by the beast?

    Barbas I guess he'll always exist due to fear. Perhaps wasteland is like a limbo for demons and afterlife for demons is in the Beast's stomach? Or beast is like an Angel of Death for demons? Lol.

    I always assumed those were the essence of a demon (similar to the sources essence from last season)

    But what's an essence vs a soul- a soul I believe is soemthing more than an essence- an essence is a fragment of a person something darker and not whole aka demons where a soul is a persons whole self

    @tomtom - it was specified that demons dont have souls- thats what made cole so special- he was a demon with a soul- as he said in Witch Way Now- he's "rather unique to the cosmos." And the demon from Styx feet under had a soul and was trying to get rid of it so he could be fully demon- and the seer from season 7 made it clear she had no soul but wanted to be human anyway.

    For anyone who watched the show Ghost Whisperer - they did this thing in the final season where they had the "shinnies" and the "shadows"- basically the shadows were the dark parts of people that separate from the soul when they die- they were evil dark fragments- maybe we think of demons like that- when the demons fell from heaven, their spirits or souls became dark evil fragments and what you have left is an essence of what they once were- so technically they have souls but they arent souls or spirits like mortals have- i believe every being has a soul or spirit and that exists in a body- even elders and angels- when one of the "good guys" moves on be it an elder is ready to retire or a mortal dies- the spirit leaves the hard body and goes to heaven or the afterlife- a demonic essence (the demons version of a soul) either goes to the wasteland...

    another theory is that only mortals or humans (that includes warlocks) have souls and demons, angels, elders, (all the non humans) have essences - if u think about it- they are supernatural spirits to begin with- some good some bad- maybe thats what they are- essences - the essence of good and evil- when the bad essence dies or looses its body it goes to the wasteland- when an elder moves on the good essence looses its body as well and moves on to wherever good essences go (like in the season 5 episode- witches in tights) that would explain why demons dont have souls (they were once fallen angels) and that would also mean the higher ups dont have souls either- cause they essentially already are spirits of sorts

    I personally like the first theory better- that all good beings have souls or spirits and when demons came to be- their souls turned into essences

    Very nice theories p3strong :-) Seeing season 10 will explore the Demonic Wasteland, I guess we'll the answers soon.

    Soul- Is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal,regarded as immortal. Another meaning is the essence or embodiment of a specified quality.

    Spirit-Is the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.

    Essence- Is the basic nature of a thing : the quality or qualities that make a thing what it is.

    Oh yeah, you're right! I've forgot Kira! ^^
    Then this is an aspect, they didn't mix up.

    The idea of shadows and shinies in "Ghost Whisperer" was very interesting. So sad they couldn't get deeper in this topic after season 5...

    I forgot Kira too.

    @julie. Hmm okay...let's see if I got this now. If you're possessed by someone's soul...then it's a different person using your body. And if you're possessed by person's essence, you start acting like them...their ideas become your ideas and if it's an evil essence then you get corrupted. Reminds me of Rogue from X-men.

    That would sort of explain Cole being possessed by Frankie's ghost and Andras demon so quickly vs. Cole being possessed(or corrupted?) by Source's essence or powers. Is that why Cole never expressed that he was possessed? :-o Because it was just an essence and not possessions like before?

    So what do we call possession by Hollow?

    @cyma @julie- basically what i was saying- essence are fragments of a person (demon) whereas a soul is the persons whole (the soul IS the person) - as for the hollow id call that an infestation... since its kinda like a virus

    I suddenly remembered Witch Wars where Phoebe stabs a demon and gains his powers. And well also inherits aspects of the demon's personality cause all she wants to do is kill.

    I guess when warlocks and demons kill good witches for their powers, they aren't influenced by their goodness because souls move on to the afterlife.

    So I guess this new weapon would destroy your soul if you're a witch or mortal and essences if you were a demon. Hmm...what about the essences of Greek Gods? :D

    pat clarified via twitter- and is even considering changing it to essence/ life force for the trade! - i love that pat cares about continuity! Charmed is in good hands! I'm happy :) and even if it doesnt get changed- he clarified- soul in this case means anything that doesnt make something a dead body - so soul essence life force spirit etc,

    *is busy finding a way to go back in time to replace Brad Kern with Pat....*

    Kern's writers always seem inconsistent at times on the show.

    They were very inconsistent @julie and i don't even understand why when they had good material and possible storylines that could of went places until they decided to drop them.
