Stella and Layla go ahead with the elders. The elders reveal that the Codex isn't the only way to get into Realix. The four artifacts that Faragonda gave to the elders created a puzzle which Stella easily solved.
As Stella and Layla arrive, Darkar and Dark Bloom begin the ritual summoning the Ultimate Power.
After they thought they destroyed Darkar, Stella and Layla find they are trapped. The others arrive just in time only to get caught in a spell.
Meanwhile, the teachers manage to destroy Kerbog. The Trix manage to fuse together to form the Megatrix and attack Darkar.
Dark Bloom has summoned the Ultimate Power and Darkar transforms into the Shadow Phoenix so that he could absorb the Ultimate Power. Sky manages to talk to Dark Bloom thinking the real Bloom is still in her, but after his speech he faints.
The speech, combined with the Great Dragon's power had broken the spell on Dark Bloom turning her back to her old self again and breaking the dark spell on everyone. She also gave the Ultimate Power back to Realix. The teachers arrive and the Winx try one last thing, a Charmix Convergence.
They successfully complete the spell and destroy the Shadow Phoenix. As Darkar has been defeated, Darkar's fortress begins to crumble, as do the buildings in Realix, with the Trix (still fused in a single body) trapped inside it.
The Winx celebrate with another end-of-year party, and, this time, the witches are invited, hinting that witches and fairies are now starting to become friends.
Tecna and Timmy play a video game while Brandon, Stella, Riven and Musa dance, Flora and Helia socialize, and Sky and Bloom discuss what happened in Shadowhaunt. Bloom reveals that she loves Sky, as well and they have their first kiss. The episode ends with a picture being taken for the yearbook.
