Chatta urges Flora to talk to Helia. Flora is too shy but runs after him, calling his name. Helia returns and the two talk briefly.

The mysterious figure journeys all the way back to Alfea, and is found by Tecna, Stella and Musa. The girls realize that this person is Avalon! They are shocked and confused to see him because Avalon was with them eleven minutes ago, and now he is sick and weak. Avalon weakly asks to see Faragonda but faints due to exhaustion. Stella goes to get him some water. While Tecna and Musa ponder over what is going on. They think it must be one of Wizgiz's experiments and Tecna goes to find a teacher. Musa stays with the weakened Avalon.

Stella surprisingly finds Avalon in the halls of Alfea, looking a lot better than before. She gives him the water and when she asks what happened earlier, Avalon nervously evades the question and excuses himself.

With no luck in finding Wizgiz, Tecna decides to discuss with Faragonda of a possible Avalon impostor. The weakened Avalon eventually comes to, and when Musa helps him, Avalon asks who she is.

Putting the puzzle together - the Pixies' freedom from Darkar's lair, their homesickness and the Dark Bloom incident; it was all part of Darkar's plan and the fake Avalon helped him. When wondering how the fake Avalon was such an excellent teacher, the real Avalon suspects Darkar must have copied his memories and lesson plans into the fake. And Faragonda also suspects that because Darkar saw that the Winx was not a threat, he did not mind teaching you, especially if it meant gaining their trust and that he could get to Bloom because of the power she has that will finally allow him to open the Relix. They finally realize that the fake Avalon plans to kidnap Bloom!

And the fake Avalon uses Bloom's guilt of being the person at fault for losing Alfea's codex. In an empty classroom, Bloom expresses that she will do anything to make sure this does not happen again. The fake Avalon then convinces her that he has a spell to make that wish come true, and leads her into a yellow sphere. Once inside, Bloom comments on the spell's strong negative energy.
