I have had so many moments where I have felt very proud. I think the proudest moment of all was when all the women in Crescent Harbor helped Aunt Jet, Aunt Fanny and I pull Gillian back from the edge of the Abyss.

It was Gilly's and my fault that her boyfriend, Jimmy Angelov, ended up in such a powerful position in the first place. She got messed up with him, I was trying to defend her - I killed him. And then through that one spell that even the Aunts wouldn't do, I guess I was trying to defend all of us, especially my girls, Kylie and Antonia. Looking back, I am not proud of the choices I made in the situation, but in the end, there was a sense of accomplishment, a sense of pride that all of the women in our small New England town could come together, and through magic, through community and the power of love. Through those thing we were not only able to pull Gillly back from the real edge of the world, where the most insidious dragons really do live, but we showed that that there is a little Witch in every woman. There is a pride in that. There is also a pride that through the love of family, the bond between sisters - of all kinds, we could reach back in time and heal Maria's broken heart and break the Owens "family curse". It's quite a legacy to leave to my girls, for sure, knowing that their lives can be as "normal" as anyone else's in the world.

I would like to add that I am really proud of Gillian. She trusted and she stuck with me, she stuck with us and she didn't give up and let go even though everything around her, around all of us is a mess.

Yes, I think in that whole situation, that is the thing I am most proud of.
