The witches cause Riven to have an accident, implicating Bloom as the culprit. A furious quarrel bursts out between Riven and Bloom. The Specialists side with Bloom, leaving Riven on his own. The triumphant witches offer their 'friendship' to Riven!
Bloom continues to dream about Daphne who beckons her to remember, the dream is so intense that Bloom wakes up and was actually talking in her sleep. Flora tells her that today is a holiday.
It is the Day of the Rose, where everybody celebrates their own mother. Flora and Tecna goes home, while Musa, Bloom and Stella stay on campus. Stella reveals that her parents are getting divorced, and Musa reveals that her mother had passed away when she was young. The girls then comfort each other and Stella receives an invitation to the big rose ball by Prince Sky.
At Cloud Tower, Griffin angrily scolds the Trix for breaking into the Alfea after getting a letter from Faragonda, but instead of disciplining them, she gives them one more chance. This time, ruining the blossoming alliance between the Red Fountain specialists and Alfea fairies.
Musa spends her time alone at Alfea as she remembers her mother while Bloom and Stella go to Magix for the festival of the Rose. After Bloom and Riven have an argument, the Trix disguise Knut as Timmy, who gives Bloom a helmet as a peace-offering to Riven.
What Bloom does not know is that Timmy went home for the day and the helmet is more of a hypno-gadget. And so, without that knowledge she gives it to Riven as an apology and Riven accepts. After that she returns to the group and Stella asked where she had been and Bloom tells her. It is then that Stella explains to Bloom that Timmy is nowhere near Magix.
After Bloom finds out the truth she tries to stop Riven, but Darcy interferes and deactivates the helmet, causing Riven to lose control and he crashes, Darcy appears and heals him. Bloom then tries to get Darcy away from Riven and explains that it was the Trix who did this, but Riven does not believe her thinking that she deactivated the helmet so Brandon could win, even though he won by default.
Bloom explains that the Trix send an imposter of Timmy to give her the helmet, but Riven denies it and explains that Timmy will not be back before this evening, telling Bloom to come up with a better excuse. He then blames his loss on Bloom, and is mad at his fellow Specialists for believing Bloom over him. But despite this unfortunate event, the bond between the Winx and Specialists continues to grow.
