Notes and TriviaEdit

  • The title is a reference to several characters finding their purpose. Paige realizes she needs to help people and considers becoming a cop, while Derek decides to support the hunters to eleminate magic.
  • Charlie is absent in this episode.
  • Paige is the only sister who uses any magic in this episode.
  • Ian shares some similarities to Aviva from "The Fourth Sister". Both dressed in dark clothes and experimented with the occult because they felt different or lonely.
