Question: I am a huge fan of Charmed, but I'm confused. How did Prue die? Did I miss something?

Televisionary: She was killed at the end of season three by the assassin demon Shax and her obituary showed up in a newspaper at the beginning of season four. (In reality, she was killed by Shannen Doherty's exit from the show.) Her death kicked off a sequence of events that brought about the arrival of new sister Paige (Rose McGowan).
