A Disloyal Adversary is the eighth episode of the third season of Winx Club.


The Winx and Specialists go to Eraklyon for the kingdom's one thousandth anniversary party. However, all the fun comes to an end when Diaspro places Sky under her control using Valtor's potion, breaking Bloom's heart. Meanwhile, Stella must sacrifice herself to save her father from a raging dragon.


At a party on Eraklyon, Princess Diaspro has a few tricks up her sleeve for Bloom and Prince Sky. Stella saves her father from a dragon attack.


Bloom's nightmare.

Bloom has a nightmare about her not being able to become a true fairy. The Winx fly circles around her, teasing her that she could not, and Aisha appears in her Enchantix form.

Stella wants to confront Cassandra and Chimera.

Bloom wakes up from her nightmare and hears Aisha waking her up. Bloom sits up and when a concerned Aisha asks if she is alright, Bloom frantically replies "no" multiple times. Aisha comforts her and Stella reassures her that it is just her nerves as she will be spending time with Sky's parents. Sky reassures Bloom that his parents are going to love her.

Sky and Bloom open the ball.

The group finally lands on Eraklyon and Sky leaves the group to get ready, as the Winx and Specialists are on their own. The girls change and head for the main entrance stairs where the rulers of the other realms are announced, including King Radius with Countess Cassandra and Chimera. Stella becomes angry and tries to confront her soon-to-be step-family but is prevented from doing so by her friends. Finally, the rulers of Eraklyon are announced. But while the guests are happily clapping, Diaspro is hiding in the gardens. With an emotionless smile, she cheers for Eraklyon's rulers, in particular, Sky and takes out the potion bottle given to her by Valtor to mix it with a drink.

Sky drinks the potion.

Meanwhile, Sky rejoins his friends, and asks Bloom to dance. As their friends watch in awe (even putting Flora into tears), Sky then tells Bloom that he will be right back, and runs into Diaspro. Diaspro tries to converse with Sky, but Sky feels uncomfortable and although he remains courteous and curt, he tries to walk away. Diaspro pretends to be understanding but convinces Sky to share a toast with her, which now contains Valtor's potion. Sky drinks the drink and falls under Diaspro's spell.

The Specialists are in shock after Sky announces Diaspro is his girlfriend.

Under Diaspro's spell, Sky announces to everyone that he truly loves Diaspro, shocking the Winx and Specialists. Bloom is upset and Stella demands an explanation. As she storms towards Sky, the Winx running behind her, Diaspro convinces Sky that they are witches and are out to get her. Sky demands the guards to get rid of the Winx; the party erupts into chaos.


The Winx run into the gardens and are chased (much to the amusement of Cassandra and Chimera), but later gets out to face Sky. Sky assumes he can beat them, but Aisha reveals that she is much more powerful by transforming into an Enchantix Fairy. She puts up a Morphix shield. As the girls leave, Bloom tells them that she wants to talk to Sky. The conversation fails, and Bloom leaves in tears.

Radius grieves for his daughter.

As the girls run to the ship, Flora is hit by one of the dragon's fiery breath. The Winx transform, as Brandon and Riven carry Flora back to their ship. Sky accuses Brandon and Riven of being traitors. Brandon tells Sky off but Sky refuses to acknowledge any of his words and ends their friendship. The Winx fight off the guards and their dragons and the fight ends. As the Winx walk back to their ship, Stella notices her father is in trouble after Cassandra and Chimera ditches him.

After earning her Enchantix, Stella makes sure her father is okay before leaving.

Stella quickly flies to King Radius, and protects him from a charging dragon. Using all her power, she saves King Radius then passes out. She earns her Enchantix by sacrificing herself for her father. Before she takes off, King Radius gives her a hug, and is very proud of her.

Diaspro wins this round.

As the Winx and Specialists successfully flee Eraklyon, Diaspro and Sky remain together, with Diaspro being more confident than ever. Valtor watches and says that this is half a victory, but Sky is still under his control. He also says that he underestimated the Winx, but say there will be more in store for them.

In the ship, Stella talks about how they both left something back there, Bloom agrees saying they both left a piece of their heart behind, but they are going to get it back.

And I heard that every guest is going to get a brand new hoverbike!

Riven, joking with Sky.

Now where did you hear that??

Sky's respond to Riven's joke.

Well... A-actually I, huh, made it up but hey, it costs nothing to dream!


Right, right, right! In that case, let's just have one last toast in your honor. Shall we?

Diaspro, convincing Sky to share a drink with her.

Sky... What happened to you? Huuh, oh, why did you have to do this to me? Where has all of our love gone? ...Where have you gone Sky?


I have got no idea what you're talking about buddy but you know what? You're acting like a total jerk!

Brandon, calling Sky out.

This is to remind you that we're no longer friends!

Sky's response to Brandon as he shoots a bullet at him.

Oh no, Stella!! What happened to you?! Stella... my baby! Answer me please!! Ooho, Stella...!!

Radius, crying for his daughter.

We both left a piece of our heart, Stella. But we're going to get it back, I promise you.
