Darkar's Prisoner is the twenty-fourth episode of the second season of Winx Club.


The demonic Lord Darkar kidnaps Bloom. The remaining Fairies, along with the Pixies and the Specialists, set out on a rescue mission. Sky is especially worried. However, in order to reach Lord Darkar's underground fortress, Brandon will have to ask for help from the high-strung Princess of Downland, Amentia.


After the events of the last episode, the Winx Club prepare to go back to the Under Realm for the last time and the pixies go with them. They prepare to board the ship but Tecna notices it is too big to fit in the caves.

Sky has an idea which Brandon does not like at first: Ask Princess Amentia for help since her Guard Worm is as big as the ship and they can use it to burrow through to Darkar's Fortress.

Brandon objects at first since he remembers how forceful Amentia is and does not want to go back but then he sees there is no other way.

BrandonSky and Aisha go ahead to get approval from the Princess while the others follow behind. While Brandon, Sky and Aisha get to see the Princess again, the others have to get out of a trap set by the witches.

After beating Amentia, she agrees to help and fight alongside the Winx Club. In a B-story Darkar uses his evil and dark magic to corrupt Bloom again, turning her into her evil alter-ego, Dark Bloom.
