Plot

WCEp221(1)

Stella and Aisha butting heads.

As the Winx's vacation continues with Stella planning a beach fashion show for the Specialists, Stella and Aisha's opposing personalities are creating tension between the two; especially since camping is not Stella's idea of fun.

Meanwhile, Darkar tries to open the portal to Relix but fails. He needs the Dragon's Flame to open the portal and sends the Trix to capture Bloom. But he also informs them that the Wildlands are magic-free zones. Worried that they will not have enough power to deal with the Winx and Specialists, Darkar reassures the Trix that their Gloomix will grant them enough power to assist them.

Darcy successfully hypnotizes the wild animals to do her bidding.

Once the Trix are teleported to the Wildlands, they start thinking of a plan to capture Bloom and deal with her friends since they are clearly outnumbered. They then hear wild animal sounds and Darcy sees their solution. At their campsite, the girls are asleep in their tent, but Bloom wakes up, startled by the noise. She steps out and speaks to Sky about it. He says he had not heard anything but also mentions that it would be quite romantic out here if it were just the two of them. He then reassures Bloom that he will keep them safe so that she and her friends could enjoy their vacation. Bloom eventually returns to sleep. By then, the Trix had lured the wild animals to where they are stationed and Darcy manages to put the creatures under her control.

WCEp221(3)

Aisha upset after realizing she does not know her new friends very well.

The next day, the girls decide to make postcards for their parents. Once Stella awakens, Aisha teases her about beauty rest. And when Musa mentions the postcards and Stella shows slight reluctance in sending one, Aisha asks why. Stella then avoids the question and gets a drink. That is when Bloom informs Aisha that Stella's parents are divorced, and despite how strong she comes on, Stella is sensitive about that subject.

Starting to feel left out once more, Aisha walks into the woods with a sleeping Piff to collect her thoughts, and especially feeling horrible for accidentally offending Stella. Once alone, Aisha cries to herself, realizing that she still does not know much about her new friends. To make matters worse, the hypnotized animals are tracking the Winx and nearing them.

WCEp221(4)

Stella earns her Charmix after admitting her own faults.

Back at the campsite, the Winx are almost ready for their fashion show with the Specialist's anticipation in tow. But Stella is getting worried about Aisha as she is not back yet. This prompts Bloom to mention that they were not exactly getting along either, which Stella agrees. However, Stella takes the initiative to find Aisha while their friends start the show.

Once Aisha had calmed down, the animals have found her and when Aisha tries to find her way back, she gets lost and starts to get scared. She tries to awaken Piff in a panicked state when Stella startles her. When Aisha asks why she is here, Stella explains that she wanted Aisha to join her fashion show. This shocks Aisha but Stella also admits her own insecurities and that she too feels left out at times; Stella empathizes with Aisha and that is reason she wants Aisha to join her. Aisha is overjoyed to hear that and the two make up, moving past their disagreements. Thus, allowing Stella to earn her Charmix.

Brandon gives Musa advice.

But their happy moment is short-lived because the wild animals appear and begin attacking them. Stella fends them off briefly with her new found powers. But since it is still dangerous, the two proceed to run away. But the animals remain on their tail and get even closer.

Musa places trust in Riven.

Their friends however, are starting to worry about them. Riven decides to go track them down, and tells them all that sitting around is not going to help. Musa follows him and tries to tell him that he should not be so blunt about things, but Riven is just being honest and wants Musa to at least think before she answers his questions. This annoys Musa and she heads off elsewhere to cool down. Brandon notices this and goes to talk to her. As Riven continues his search, he notices different animal tracks that follow a consistent path, which is very unusual and so he follows them.

WCEp221(6)

Musa earns her Charmix for placing trust in Riven.

Meanwhile, Brandon talks to Musa about the two's constant arguments and never seeming to work past them. Musa agrees and Brandon explains that being honest is the best solution. But Musa wonders if she can do that and Brandon suggests to follow Riven and see to it the best of her abilities. Musa takes his advice and follows Riven. When Musa reaches Riven, he had been spying on the Trix setting up a trap for them. Seeing this, Musa decides to go warn the others this sparks Riven's curiosity as she seems content in leaving him with Darcy. Musa confidently says she will trust him, leaving him speechless but nevertheless okay with it. And with that, Musa heads off to warn the others, she is overjoyed by her own willingness to trust Riven and this earns her her Charmix.

WCEp221(7)

Riven leads his friends safely across the trap.

However, Stella and Aisha is still in trouble and this time Stella uses her Charmix for a signal flare. This alerts the others to their location and they head off to find them with Brandon getting there faster; and just in time, because Stella and Aisha were cornered.

Their friends have rejoined them but that does not mean they are safe because now the animals charge for all of them! They take off running but it is clear to them the animals are not acting normal and Musa reaffirms this and informs them that she had seen Darcy hypnotizing the animals.

WCEp221(8)

The group is trapped!

Nearing their trap, the Trix hear noises and are excited to see that the Winx will eventually fall into their trap, unaware that Riven has been keeping a close eye on them.

As the group runs further, they near the traps laid out and Riven stops them. With his knowledge, he leads his friends footing in order to avoiding setting off the trap. But once in the clearing, the monsters close in on them and although they want to get further, they reach the cliff and now, they have nowhere to go...
