Daphne giving advice to Bloom.

Alfea had suffered a great deal of damage. Stella looks at the damage done from their apartment balcony, she steps back inside and tells the others how worried she is about Bloom and Sky. Flora is still pondering over on how to return Mirta back to her human form.

Bloom regains her powers.

At Lake Roccaluce, Bloom is walking deeper into the waters of the lake and submerges into the lake. There, Daphne appears before her. Bloom questions if she is dreaming and Daphne answers that she is not. She beckons her to come and shows her Mike and Vanessa's home, she explains to Bloom that she had loving people who raised her and was willing to let her go when the time was right and when Bloom wonders what happened to her... Daphne explains that this happens to all of them: doubts, fears, worries, and their loved ones taken from them. However, it is not possible for people to steal away from anyone, as their past, dreams or powers. Daphne advises Bloom to look deep within herself to recover her powers and then vanishes. Bloom takes the advice and regains her powers.

At Alfea, Flora is finally able to break the curse on Mirta and returns her to human-self. After seeing this, Stella steps out on the balcony again and points a handsome man is pacing back and forth below them and notifies Musa that he must be looking for her. Turns out, it is Riven. Musa pretends to not care but gives an excuse to go downstairs. Stella then loudly tells Riven that Musa is coming down and Riven feigns innocence. Musa finally arrives and greets him, but Riven is too nervous to actually speak to her and makes an excuse that he was looking for Timmy before escaping, leaving Musa stunned.

Mirta is back to normal.

In Magix City, it is deserted, with people encased in web-like cocoons. Sky tries to take in the horrifying scene when a monster assaults him. Sky does his best to fight it off.

Riven being nervous in front of Musa.

While at Cloud Tower, more creatures from the Army of Darkness are produced. Several monsters forge into three separate thrones in which the Trix take their seats. The army, with the Trix in tow, marches straight towards Alfea.

At Alfea, the Winx and Mirta are walking about the quad when Flora asks Mirta is she has any idea of the Trix's next plan. Mirta, aware of their power and new found ruthlessness, is also unsure of what will come next. Stella then makes a joke and Tecna scolds her for it, but Stella explains that if she is serious she will think about Bloom and it will "drive [her] nuts." She points out Kiko misses Bloom too. Faragonda and Griffin take note of the students fatigue caused by the numerous battles and Griffin continues to feel guilty.

Sky at Magix City.

The Army of Darkness and the Trix continue their march to Alfea. The Undines sees them and two of them fly to Alfea to warn them.

At Alfea, Codatorta and Saladin play a board game to pass time. Codatorta feels that waiting is making him anxious (not enough to distract him from his board game against Saladin to which he wins) and Saladin agrees. Riven, Timmy and Brandon are walking through the quad yard while Brandon continues to worry about Sky, Timmy and Riven try to reassure him.

The Trix march forward to Alfea.

The three walk towards where the Winx, Knut, Pepe and Kiko are sitting with no new news. That is, until the Undines arrives from the Dark Forest. The two nymphs alert Faragonda of the incoming attack and they all prepare the attack.

Sky on the other hand is dealing with a monster at Magix City, unfortunately his enemy is proven to be more powerful than he. Sky is then surrounded by two more monsters and all seems lost until Bloom arrives and blasts the monsters into bits completely vanquishing them. After that Bloom flies down to meet with Sky, he is unharmed. He thanks Bloom for saving him and they catch up on each other's adventures they were not part of. Then they head towards Alfea.

The Trix continue marching their way to Alfea. The three witches are having an argument conquer Alfea with Icy taking the lead in the argument.

Faragonda senses the Trix's presences.

At Alfea, everyone is waiting for another impending battle. Griffin and Faragonda are overlooking the school on Alfea's rooftop. Griffin continues to feel guilty for letting the Trix get their hands on the Dragon's Flame, though Faragonda assures her that it is not something Griffin should be feeling guilty about. Faragonda also goes on to say that no fairy has ever had their magical powers taken away from them. She hopes that Bloom has not lost herself yet, as her powers are extraordinary.

A few miles away, a bird servant of the Trix are spying on Alfea, it flies towards its masters. Faragonda can sense they are nearing... The final battle is about to begin.

Nothing that doesn't happen to us all. You had doubts, you were afraid, you came to believe that, what you loved most dearly could be taken away from you. But the truth is, no one in the whole universe could ever steal your past, your dreams or your magic powers. The witches do not own them, they are yours to keep, forever. Bloom, to recover powers: look deep inside yourself.


That was the key, Flora! See, you had to let your energy flow through both your hands!

Mirta, when she returned to normal

Um, h-hi Musa, I was... looking for Timmy! I... thought he might be around here but, anyway, I should keep looking! Bye!

Riven, nervous as he speaks with Musa

I'm sure Bloom and Sky are okay. Perhaps they'll have trouble getting back to Alfea, but I have a good feeling we'll see them very soon.


The entire Magic Dimension has fallen prey to the Trix's madness... Everywhere, there is nothing but evil and destruction!


The Power of the Dragon is our hands, what could you possibly be afraid of?!

Icy, to Darcy and Stormy

They're here... I can sense it.
