It's the Day of the Rose, where everybody celebrates their own mother. Flora and Tecna go home, while Musa, Bloom and Stella stay back on campus. Stella reveals that her parents are getting divorced, and Musa reveals that her mother had passed away when she was young.
What Bloom doesn't know is that Timmy went home for the day and the helmet is more of a hypno gadget.
Bloom finds out, and tries to stop Riven, but Darcy interferes and activates the helmet, making Riven turn to the dark side.
He blames his loss on Bloom, and is mad at his fellow Specialists for believing Bloom over him. He leaves with Darcy, who healed him, making Riven think she saved him. But despite this unfortunate event, the bond between the Winx and Specialists continues to grow.

- In the 4Kids version, Bloom states that the reason she isn't heading back to Gardenia is because she can't read the 'magical'.

- When fake Timmy is explaining Bloom the gift for Riven and it zooms out so we can see Icy, he is wearing the helmet already, but when they zoom back in, he still has to figure out how to open the box containing the helmet.
