It’s not easy for me to admit this but I didn’t love Paige at first but eventually she grew on me and I grew to love her like I did Prue, Piper, Phoebe, and Leo.
Why didn’t I love Paige at first? I thought that Paige was just a replacement for Prue and that there wouldn’t be the same chemistry between Piper, Phoebe, Leo, and her like there had been between Prue, Piper, Phoebe, and Leo for the first three seasons and years.
Paige is the one that truly changed because she went from thinking that she was a mortal who was adopted to finding out that not only was she half-witch and half-Whitelighter but she was also a descendant of Melinda Warren.
Paige was the result of an affair that Patty had with Sam while she was still married to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe’s father Victor. She told Piper and Patty the three of them thought that she had just gotten fat during her pregnancy. She was taken to a church and placed for adoption with the only request made by her parents that her name begin with a P. Just like me, Piper was hesitant to become close to Paige because she was still grieving and mourning Prue.
As Paige was coming into her powers, she was being targeted by The Source Of All Evil who wanted to use her powers for evil since he didn’t want The Charmed Ones to be reconstituted after he had his demon assassin Shax murder Prue. The first spell that Paige ever cast after she met her sisters was the spell to vanquish Shax.
Having said all of that, I finally fell in love with Paige after I started getting to know her. I now love her as much as I love everyone else because I got the time to overcome my resistance to her and welcome her with open arms into my life and my heart. The only love interest of Paige that I liked was Kyle because he knew about magic and witchcraft. I feel like Kyle truly loved Paige for Paige and they could have been the perfect couple had he lived.
