If Nebula wins the Winx must bring the Wizards from their sanctum and face their punishment dealt by the Earth Fairies.

  • Many of the scenes in the Frutti Music Bar are repeated from earlier episodes and though the current setting is at night, many of the scenes vary between different times of the day.

Mistakes

  • Stella's missing her hair at one point, but it comes back a few seconds later.
  • In one scene, as Aisha looks at the Black Gift, her wings are missing.
  • When the Winx were in Sibylla's cave, Roxy's shoulder was the color of her skin, and then turned into the color of her top when it was supposed to be green.

  • The official Winx Club website mistakenly titles the episode, "Bloom's Test".

Quotes

You're not the legendary warrior you think you are! You're just a coward! You picked on the weakest one of us.
Bloom
I don't know what Bloom's up to, but if it's to make her angry, she's doing a good job.
Tecna
Truth is, Morgana hasn't used you until now because she's been worried that you'd mess up.
Bloom
Ice Wall! *deflects the attack* See? That's what I mean. Can't you do any better? If you want me to go get Ogron and his wizards, you'll have to fight me. If I win, you'll free us.
Bloom
Bloom, I hope you've given this a lot of thought.
Stella
No. I'm using my instincts.
Bloom
Perfect. I feel much better.
Stella
What do you know about vengeance and hatred? You have nothing to teach me, you naive child! Have you ever been locked up for centuries in a prison, humiliated and defeated?
Nebula
My rage against the humans is even greater! They stopped believing in us and condemned us to oblivion!
Nebula
What do you say? We can do without some of this ice. There's so much of it; I'm sure they won’t miss it.
Nebula
I'll do as you say, Roxy... but only because you asked me to.
This is the prophecy, Winx.
