On that night Phoebe cast the spell that reawakened the powers of the three sisters that were bound by their grams when they were young. The next day, she got her first premonition. Unlike her sisters, Phoebe embraced her destiny as a Charmed One with open arms, and convinced them to embrace their magic as well.

Phoebe decided to return to college, and worked hard to keep her studies stable and undistributed by her Charmed responsibilities, which she still took seriously. She graduated from college with a B.A. in Psychology.

The darkest time and also hapiest (before she met Coop) was when she met the ssistant district attorney Cole Turner. Cole a half demoniac side. He was the demon Belthazor. When Phoebe found out about, it made her feel divided between her sisters and Cole. She ended up marrying Cole but soon after he became the Source of All Evil, Phoebe and her sister vanquished him.

The big challenge for Phoebe and her sisters was when they had to face the Christy and Billy Jenkins. Phoebe had a strong bound with Billy and it was hard for her to believe that Billy was evil. It turned out that it was Christy the evil one.
