The Time for Truth is the twenty-third episode of the second season of Winx Club.


The Pixies have fallen ill, so Layla and Flora take them back to the Tree of Life for help. But the Tree of Life is sick too, and it's up to Flora to find out why. Meanwhile, Lord Darkar shifts his plan to catch Bloom into high gear. His spy among the Fairies is revealed, but will it be too late to save Bloom?


A masked figure is stuck in Darkar's dungeon. He is chained up, and his magic is very weak.

Flora, Aisha, along with the Specialists: Brandon, Sky and Helia, arrives at Pixie Village, with the sick bonded pixies. Livy is in fear, thinking she would be punished for leading Icy to Pixie Village's codex. Flora reassures that Livy would not get in trouble but however is led to the Tree of Life, which is sick.

The masked figure manages to get out of his chains and manages to set up an illusion spell, hoping Darkar would not spot him. Meanwhile, Darkar speaks to Professor Avalon, telling him they need one more piece to enter the Relix.

Faragonda holds a meeting, congratulating the Winx Club, minus Flora, for earning their Charmix. They then start training very hard to defeat Lord Darkar. Griselda and Avalon starts the training, creating a monster using the Winx's powers. They successfully destroy "their worst enemy", as Bloom refers to it. The Winx are than directed to Faragonda's office, where their is a message waiting for them from Pixie Village.

Faragonda is informed that there is no use in saving the Pixies as the Tree of Life cannot be healed. Faragonda reminds Flora that she is the only one that can save the Tree of Life. Flora is flustered; she doesn't have her Charmix nor does she know which parts of the tree is sick.

Under a lot of pressure, Flora has troubles making decisions on what to do. Helia goes by Flora, which Flora regains her confidence and transforms. Using her powers, she is able to heal and save the Tree of Life. As Faragonda and Griselda observes, they are very proud however Faragonda states that there is one more step to be taken towards Flora's Charmix.

The pixies are able to be healed by drinking their tea. They are all happy, and living in harmony. The Tree of Life then gives birth, and is revealed how pixies and pixie pets are made. The Specialists then leave, before "Red Fountain sends out a search party". Aisha goes to say farewell as Flora is too shy.

Chatta urges Flora to talk to Helia, but Flora is too shy but runs after him, calling his name. Helia returns and the two talk briefly. Flora, unable to find the words, doesn't confess her feelings, frustrating Chatta. Flora then sums up her courage and tells Helia that she loves him. Helia smiles and tells her that he loves her too, blowing her a kiss. Flora earns Charmix.

The mysterious figure journeys all the way back to Alfea, and is found by Tecna, Stella and Musa. It is revealed to be the real Avalon. They are confused to why Avalon was with them eleven minutes ago and why he is now sick and weak. Stella finds the fake Avalon and is also confused. Musa helps Avalon but is confused at the fact that Avalon doesn't even know her, and the fact that he didn't teach yet.

Faragonda is also confused, and questions the real Avalon. Faragonda finally believes the real Avalon, by giving her the signed letter. They all figure out that the fake Avalon was Darkar's spy. They also figure out that the fake Avalon was out to get Bloom, as she is the final piece to open the portal to the Relix.

Bloom is led to an empty room by fake Avalon. She comments how she feels weak and cold and is taken to Darkar's fortress. The Winx fail to come at the right time.
