| Next (continuity)|
The invasion of Shadow Haunt begins as Amentia's guard worm burrows a hole to Shadow Haunt for the Winx to travel through.
Darkar and Dark Bloom prepare to open the gate to Realix but the Trix inform him that the Winx managed to get into Shadowhaunt, and Darkar wanted the Trix to use all their Gloomix power to power up the shadow monsters. They do so and feel exhausted.
When they confront Darkar he tells them that their services are no longer required. As the Winx struggle to get into Shadowhaunt Darkar summons Kerbog and transforms him into another monster.
The Winx manage to use convergence to beat the monsters and land in Shadow Haunt.
After an emotional farewell the Winx go to find Darkar, only to find that he and Dark Bloom have already left for Realix. They run into Kerbog's new form, an extinct Opticeratops. Just as Kerbog was about to finish them off, Faragonda, Griffin, and Codatorta arrive with the Pixie Elders to save them.
