Character Review: Billie Jenkins
Billie Jenkins is introduced in the show's eighth season as a young witch who pays more attention to demon fighting (while wearing a black wig, shades, and a black outfit) than to her education.  Billie comes under the tutelage of the Charmed Ones after she asks them to teach her everything they know about witchcraft. This, at the time when the Charmed Ones are thought to be dead, proves useful for the three sisters, as Billie can carry out smaller magic-related tasks and also to cover for them.  Billie's back story involves the abduction of her sister, Christy Jenkins, by mysterious demons with unknown intentions.  This, along with the fact that the incident was never mentioned by her parents, leaving Billie even more confused, was the main motivation for Billie to train and become skilled in using her powers. Her main objective was to find out who kidnapped Christy and why, and to save her if she was still alive. Upon meeting with an Angel of Destiny, Billie was assured that her sister was alive and that she would eventually find her. Her sister was revealed to have been kidnapped by a surprisingly alive Triad because she - with Billie's assistance - were the key to "Ultimate Power".  Billie finally found her sister after fifteen years. She began teaching Christy how to control her powers. When Christy was kidnapped by the demons that were sent by the Triad, Billie went after her. While they were both down in the underworld, Billie convinced Christy to vanquish the demons that captured her. Together, with Christy's pyrokinetic powers and Billie's telekinesis, they killed the demons - creating the Ultimate Power that had been prophecised by the Triad. What Billie didn't realize was that Christy was working with the Triad, the same trio of demons who sent Cole Turner/Belthazor after the Charmed Ones. It was originally believed that they were the major threat the sisters were supposed to face. This was not the case, as Leo Wyatt, Piper's husband, was not returned by the Angel of Destiny after the two of them were vanquished. The remaining Triad member reminded Christy that Billie is the 'Ultimate Power', and she had to save her (in other words, turn her against the Charmed Ones). Unfortunately, Christy succeeded in doing so and Billie turned to the darkness although not of her initial free will.  Billie and Christy faced the sisters in the manor with both sides empowered by the supernatural force called The Hollow. Because they had both taken in The Hollow, their powers were evenly matched. The power between them shot out in all directions, causing the manor to explode, killing Phoebe, Paige, and Christy. Billie and Piper were the only survivors. After the battle, The Hollow returned to its containment.  Following this destruction, the Angel of Destiny brang back Leo, who stopped Piper from killing Billie. Piper went into the past to fix the present. After leaving the destroyed manor, Billie realized that the Triad used her and Christy. Billie returned to the side of the Charmed Ones and helped resurrect the dead witches.  Within a series of events in which Leo and Piper travelled through time to fix what happened, Billie realized that her sister had become a killer. Billie used her projection power to project herself and the Charmed Ones to the Triad, just before the witches called for the Hollow, and vanquish them as well as Dumain. In an act of rage, Christy fired on Billie, and Billie was forced to kill her sister in self-defense by reversing her power onto her sister. She broke down afterwards, but all fences had been mended between her and the sisters, making Billie a strong and worthy ally.  In the final Charmed episode when the Charmed Ones started to write their story down, it was revealed that Billie babysitted two of Phoebe's daughters.  Though Billie and her sister Christy were both Witches, albeit ones that manifested their powers later in life than normal, their parents had no magical powers and were human. Both of their parents were the product of unions between a Witch and a human, resulting in normal human children with latent Witch genes.
