X Write a comment Comments: 43 #1 Jluengo (Saturday, 15 November 2014 22:39) Oh my God!! I hope is not Prue...!!!! #2 Julie (Saturday, 15 November 2014 22:40) Looks like Phoebe is holding a pink rose. #3 paul (Saturday, 15 November 2014 23:18) hmm...i wonder if its grams? yeah shes already dead but with the ancient athame, valen might be able to destroy her, it would explain why wyatt didnt recognise her when he and chris came back in forever charmed. just a thought #4 p3nathan (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:00) It could be nothing, but I find it interesting that Paige is looking away from the grave. #5 sephjaymes (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:07) Yeah, I think it's Paige. #6 gc (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:25) Okay new theory. It's Prue and Cole trades his father's soul for hers. #7 gc (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:26) Btw I'm Katmgc so y'all are welcome. #8 Paiper (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:41) nobody has noticed that they have not drawn the tattoos of the wrist of Piper? also, the covers usually have nothing to do with the issue. #9 p3nathan (Sunday, 16 November 2014 00:49) The name on the grave has been held back because it's a spoiler. Most of them are more symbolic, sure, but they nevertheless hint to themes and story points within the issue, most of the time. The only cover I can think of thus far that didn't really hint to much of anything was Mortal Enemies. #10 sephjaymes (Sunday, 16 November 2014 03:08) I think Prue is already dead. lol #11 Jean (Sunday, 16 November 2014 03:32) It looks like its Prue. But I mean shes already dead, and stuck in the nexas of the all. I think its Cole though maybe. #12 Jluengo (Sunday, 16 November 2014 03:59) I thiks is Prue too :( but she`s alive now... :( #13 chloefan03 (Sunday, 16 November 2014 06:07) In my opinion it's Cole. According to the cover Phoebe is the sister who is griving the most (because of her past love for Cole) and Paige is looking away, not really sad (wich could be explained by her tense relationship with Cole in the past). we have to remember that this issue will be the end of the first story arc and that Cole will play a big part in it (we know that something he will be doing will cast a shadow for the rest of the season, and Pat said that it's possible that all the regular characters will not always be regulars during the season, so in my opinion something will happen when he will try to resurrect his father and maybe he will "die"? but since Pat loves his character not forever i'm sure. And who knows maybe his father will become the next big bad since we don't know nothing about him, or that his mother will come back? #14 p3nathan (Sunday, 16 November 2014 13:00) Just in response to some of the above comments: if whoever dies is killed using the ancient athame, it doesn't matter if they're already dead; their soul will be destroyed. #15 Bigbear (Sunday, 16 November 2014 13:56) Let's be real guys, Prue and Cole are safe. No sense in bringing them both back into the fold only to kill them after a few issues. If I had to guess, I'd say it's someone of some importance to the sisters but not to the overall story, someone whose death can be used to advance the plot or the character development without shaking things too much. I'd say either Coop (we hardly ever see him), Victor (it'd be interesting to see how Prue reacts, feeling guilty about never telling him she was back) or Grams (really hope it's not). #16 p3strong (Sunday, 16 November 2014 15:45) @bigbear- it's deff not coop because we saw in the flash forward during Forever Charmed that he's around (the third daughter still has to be born) I think grams would be too much of a shock so possibly victor- would explain why paige is there yet turned away- she connected to victor but not directly related. #17 pruesthebest (Sunday, 16 November 2014 15:59) True @bigbear and @p3strong i am hoping that it isn't victor. I actually like victor but it would make alot of sense. If it is him, i hope he get to see prue before getting the axe. #18 pruefan4life (Sunday, 16 November 2014 17:22) what if prue gets struck by the ancient athame ... only for it to not work on her? what a twist that would be--a plausible once since none of us really knows what she has become (aside from the title of "guardian of the nexus of the all"). even prue herself doesn't fully know what's she's become. #19 TomTom (Sunday, 16 November 2014 17:52) Oh my... I'm still so excited. I agree, the position and behaviour of Paige could be a hint to her relationship to the lost person. So Cole, Victor, Penny and Prue could be possible. But out of that four, Cole seems to be the most logical I think. Paige would show deep solicitousness if it were Victor, Grams or even her sister. I'm not sure, if she would do this for Cole... But Piper looks too touched, if it were Cole I guess. Okay she doesn't look very sad... hm. It looks like Phoebe has the strongest feelings fot the dead one. Maybe it's Elise? Pat said there would be more of her. Maybe in a dramatic way? Other possibilities could be Patty or Darryl... :/ #20 p3nathan (Sunday, 16 November 2014 18:10) I did think Patty could be a possibility. Losing their mother all over again would certainly bring the sisters closer together again IMO. #21 cyma (Sunday, 16 November 2014 18:49) I am too excited by the cover and everyone's theories to form something coherent, lol. #22 Bigbear (Sunday, 16 November 2014 23:49) It looks like Phoebe is the only one really grieving and the others are only there to support her, maybe it's someone closer to her then everybody else? One thing I do know.. PAT IS EVIL. #23 Julie (Monday, 17 November 2014 00:40) I'm thinking this may have something to do with Cole. #24 StoryGirl83 (Monday, 17 November 2014 07:08) Okay, first people it's definitely not. - Darryl (not that he's mentioned above, but it's definitely not him) - Pat decided to silence that idea already. - Prue - The season has been stated to be about all four sisters, not the three who are Charmed. If Prue was killed her, she would definitely not be a main character in the season. - Cole - Pat has stated that Cole's quest to restore his father's soul to life (successful or not) is a major theme for the season, not just the story arc), thus Cole must remain alive for the majority of the season - Benjamin Turner - As above, the quest to restore him to life is a major part of the season, so his soul can't be destroyed here. - Coop - Pat has said that although he'd like to mess with the ending and make it seem less safe, he's not changing it. Coop's soul is safe until Phoebe goes into labor with her fourth child, their third. - Henry - Same thing as Coop. Henry is safe until the kids are in lower elementary school or thereabouts. - Leo - Same as Coop and Henry. Leo's basically safe until he's an old man. - Piper - Same as Coop, Henry, and Leo, especially Leo. She's safe until she's an old woman. - Phoebe - Is safe until after her third daughter is born. - Paige - Is safe until her kids are in lower elementary school - Billie (although stated to not really be involved this season) - Is safe until Phoebe and Coop's third child is born - Wyatt and Chris - Safe until they are adults - Melinda, PJ, Kat, Tam, Henry Jr., and Parker - Safe until they are in lower elementary school Most of those were givens, but I figured I state the obvious since some of those were being discussed above. The older generation (Grams, Patty, Victor, Sam, and Melinda Warren) that have been mentioned before, are all interesting potentials though. Based off comments from Pat, I would say Victor and Sam (not actually sure if anyone actually mentioned Sam, but I consider him part of that group) are unlikely. Grams was mentioned in the first issue as being helpful to them, so I think I'm going to lean toward Grams as being the victim of this story arc. #25 TomTom (Monday, 17 November 2014 09:54) But we all know that the future can change. This is a big aspect in a lot of plots of Charmed... So no one is really safe, I think. However your theories totally fit and I concede in the most points. But the cover could be symbolic. Maybe the victim IS Prue or Cole. And the soul seems lost but the sisters fight to get it back and in the meantime we see the victim in the space where ever it's send to. The cover don't has to mean, that the victim is buried and dead for ever. #26 Miia (Monday, 17 November 2014 12:36) Pat is killing me... so my name should be engraved in that stone. xD I think it's the (symbolic) grave of Patty, Penny or Cole. Or Prue? Damn! #27 June (Monday, 17 November 2014 12:37) If Grams was the victim of a storyarc, maybe she is harmed in some way from the other side, and is unable to ever come back as a ghost to help. #28 lilchi721 (Monday, 17 November 2014 15:17) You reckon this whole thing is symbolic? #29 pruesthebest (Monday, 17 November 2014 17:41) I second that @storygirl83... Whoever came up w/ the idea it's melinda warren is a genius. The prophecy could definitely be altered because it threatens the charmed ones and their powers which may leave them powerless. Which is why i'm hoping it's not melinda... #30 Ghali (Monday, 17 November 2014 20:44) Couldn't it be Billie ? It could make sense. Phoebe was the closest to her. #31 Bigbear (Monday, 17 November 2014 21:06) Billie is mostly safe because of the flashforward, and Pat already said he has no plans for her in s10. I'm starting to think TomTom is right. Just because there's a grave in the cover it doesn't mean the victim is really dead. And if you think about it, it doesn't mean there's a victim at all. It could all be symbolic (and if that's the case Pat is more evil than I thought). #32 sephjaymes (Tuesday, 18 November 2014 13:26) I can tell ya'll one thing. Anyone can die and anyone can come back to life, so it can be anyone at this point. #33 p3nathan (Tuesday, 18 November 2014 17:19) I think the whole point of the Ancient Athame though is that who ever is killed by it is definitely not coming back. At least I hope that will be the case, otherwise it seems a little pointless. #34 Julie (Tuesday, 18 November 2014 20:22) What exactly will they do with the Ancient Athame weapon after Valen gets vanquished? #35 StoryGirl83 (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 00:24) @p3nathan - Exactly. If anyone does get killed with that atheme, they aren't coming back. Pat's already confirmed that much. Grant you he hasn't confirmed that anyone is killed with it, but I think it's been pretty heavily implied, so I think someone will and I think it will be someone we know from the first nine seasons. #36 Bigbear (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 00:57) Oh well.. here's hoping a couple of leprechauns trip over the ancient athame and stab themselves. Hate those guys. #37 Alice (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 04:50) I hope Prue isn't killed with the ancient athame. Strangely, I'm probaly the only one wanting coop or henry killed with it, or die. I just dont like how every charmed ones has to live happily ever after, I mean every one of them is married. Like I always wished one of the three was a single mother. Just seems too perfect to be true they all are happily ever after. #38 p3nathan (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 15:35) I have no problem with a character I like dying so long as it's a good story. In fact there have been shows where killing a character off would've been a better ending than what they actually got (I'm looking at you Grey's Anatomy) #39 p3nathan (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 17:24) I'm also fine with one of the husbands dying. It also kinda bugged me that Kern ended the show with each sister essentially having the same thing; like families only come in one shape and size. That's part of why I liked Paul having Henry jr. be adopted; it was different and a good recognition of Paige and Henry's respective upbringings. Having one of the sisters as a single mother would be interesting. I know Piper referred to herself as a single mother in season 6 and the start of season 7... but come on, Leo was there just as much as usual. She was a single parent in that she was a mom without a romantic relationship, but really they were just co-parents. #40 StoryGirl83 (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 18:20) @Alice - Whether others want them killed or not (and I'm pretty sure there are other people that do want them killed) there really isn't much of a chance of that. Pat has specifically stated that he is going to stay within the bounds of what was shown in "Forever Charmed" which means if either Phoebe or Paige is going to be a single mom at some point, it's still a few years away. It could happen, but it shouldn't be happening now. @p3nathan - My problem with killing off a character that I like, especially in situations like this, is that means I'll never see that character, again. Of course my favorite character has been seen twice since his season one death (both as flashbacks), so there's that. I do understand what you mean about a character dying is better than that character being ruined and that has been the topic of many conversations I've been part of. #41 p3nathan (Wednesday, 19 November 2014 19:12) Yeah there's always flashbacks and I suppose dream sequences, though admittedly it wouldn't really be the same :) I suppose I'm worked up in the excitement of it... that might sound a bit dark, since we're talking about a characters death, but just because it's something that Charmed has never done. Prue and Andy were the only dead people that stayed hidden away in the afterlife during the show's run and then they returned in the comics; which I actually like, because if they do kill somebody and they stay dead, it'a an even bigger deal, because it's actually never been done in the series. Part of me is actually hoping that it's Patty. I think the death of the sisters' mother was always something that provided a lot of deep emotion and really brought the sisters together. However, I think they spoiled that a bit by having Patty come back more regularly; it became less special. Think of the emotion of "That 70's Episode" and to a an extent "Just Harried"...now compare it to "Cheaper By The Coven", there was that nice scene with Patty and Victor at the end, but as far as the sisters were concerned, that emotion was pretty much gone; just "yay, mom's home" and that's that. Patty dying would almost bring things full circle and since the sisters seem a bit distant at the moment, it could be a could driving force for the sisterhood to become much closer again. #42 StoryGirl83 (Friday, 21 November 2014 02:03) @p3nathan - Yeah, and although Grams is probably more helpful, I never saw that Paige connected with her. She's not super close with Patty, of course, but I think she feels the connection, so I think it would hurt more for her. #43 Julie (Sunday, 23 November 2014 18:03) It could be anybody since Pat just tweeted that no one is safe in #5.
