Season 8 Synopsis
At the start of the eighth (and final) season, the sisters are presumed dead. However, alive with a desire to put their old lives behind them and live a demon-free existence, Piper, Phoebe, Paige and Leo cast a spell creating new identities.
They alter their appearances to the outside world, but still appear as themselves to those closest to them.
Piper tries to live the normal family life by being a wife to Leo, raising two sons, and running her nightclub, P3.
Phoebe embraces her new life and tries to form a relationship with Dex Lawson (Jason Lewis), a gorgeous artist who had admired her from afar but never had the courage to ask her out.
Now, with a new lease on life, Phoebe goes after Dex, especially after she has a premonition that she will marry him. Wanting to move on and put magic behind her, Paige still can't ignore the Whitelighter in her (as her healing abilities have appeared), and answers the call of a young witch named Billie, who has telekinetic powers.
As the Charmed Ones work with Billie to hone her skills and teach her the importance of their calling, they realise how much they miss magic.
During the season the girls, along with Billie vanquish many demons. The end of Season 8, the Halliway sisters decide it is time they write down their story in the Book of Shadows, so that all future generations will know what has happened.
