The Wizards' Challenge is the twenty-third episode of the third season of Winx Club.


The Winx and the Specialists return to study the Water Stars. Valtor challenges the school directors to a duel, and makes Cloud Tower vanish! Bloom comes face to face with Valtor and daunting information about her real parents.


The episode begins with the Winx discussing whether to experiment with the Water Stars first or go shopping. They agree on experimenting first, then going shopping later. At the lab, they noticed that the Water Stars aren't activating. Stella suggests to hit them with a burst of magic, yet it might bring out a negative reaction. Aisha thinks of trapping the Water Stars into a Morphix ball, then transfer the energy onto them. However, Bloom thinks they should try a more personal approach. Bloom comes into contact with them by touch and creates a light reaction. It came to a realization that Bloom's Dragon's Flame may be the key to unlocking the Water Stars' full power. Although Musa tells her that if the Water Stars can destroy Valtor, because of his power of the Dragon's Flame, then they could destroy her as well.

Later on, the Trix encounter Valtor who looks depressed because the fairies, specialists, and witches are teaming up together. He admits wanting to spell himself into oblivion, in which Darcy volunteers to, but caught his attention to continue in collecting spells, specifically from Alfea.

In Magix, while the Winx and the Specialists, with Ophir tagging along, Valtor appears before the citizens of Magix. Valtor challenges the three headmasters of the schools to a duel. To prove his threat, he makes Cloud Tower disappear, telling the headmasters that he will do the same to Magix if they refuse his request. Headmistress Faragonda, along with the other teachers from Alfea and Cloud Tower, have a meeting discussing Valtor's request. Everyone believes Faragonda should decline, but she announces that she, Griffin, and Saladin have already agreed to Valtor's challenge. The three of them decide to reunite as the Company of Light once more to end Valtor. Bloom asks Faragonda to not completely destroy Valtor if she and the teachers are successful. Bloom believes he is the only person that knows what happened to her birth parents.

At Lake Roccaluce, the headmasters meet up with Valtor, and begin their duel. Little do the three teachers know, Valtor put an illusion spell on them. This causes them to fight each other unknowingly. While the fight goes on as a diversion, Valtor sneaks into Alfea. Bloom, however, can sense his presence, and leads the Winx to find Valtor. The Winx find him but they become trapped in a wall of fire while he enters the Magic Archives. They transform and start attacking him, but before Bloom could deliver the final blow to him with the Water Stars, he tells them that he's absorbed Bloom's parents into his body. Not knowing if he's lying or not they let him escape.

Afterwards, the teachers are free from Valtor's illusion spell and realize they've been fighting each other. Faragonda commends the girls for stopping Valtor and gives them a day off. Back at the club in Magix, Ophir has a talk with Aisha. This time, he introduces himself as Nabu from Andros; the man that Aisha is arranged to marry. Back at Alfea, Aisha and Nabu confront both their parents and come to terms with their decision. Aisha's and Nabu's parents apologize and allow the two of them to take their time and not worry about marriage. Stella then welcomes Nabu into the group by saying he not only gets Aisha but all of the Winx Club as new friends.

Maybe we should hit them with a burst of magic to get it going.
I'm not sure Stella; it could bring out a negative reaction.
We don't want to blow up the science lab.
Been there, done that.
