Alfea under Siege
| Next (continuity)|
The parents of many students feel concerned about Bloom's presence at Alfea because she has attracted the attention of many evil figures, like Valtor, and asked Faragonda to remove her. Faragonda then calls a school meeting and announces that Bloom will stay at Alfea. But Bloom decides to leave Alfea for a little while and go back home to Gardenia.
Sky announces his engagement with Diaspro. Stella hears about this and goes to Gardenia and tells Bloom. Bloom comes back to Magix. She, Stella, Flora and Musa decides to go to Eraklyon and talk to Sky. Aisha is on Andros and Tecna decides to stay back at Alfea, so she can let the Winx back in to the school by going through the barrier.
Riven takes the girls to Eraklyon. He shows a lot of negativity, stating what if Sky didn't want to see them. Musa is very angry at Riven. Riven distracts the guards when they land in Eraklyon, and the girls are able to get into the castle. Brandon gets caught by Sky's army. Stella becomes really worried.
Diaspro, who had been evacuated due to a ship landing, comes back fuming at the guards and walks in to see Bloom trying to talk to Sky. Diaspro is angry and tells the guards to go after them. The Winx run. Sky then corners them in a room and he attacks them.
A piece of armor cuts Sky's clothes, and reveals the mark of Valtor. With Stella's Fairy Dust, she was able to remove the spell.
On the way back, Bloom is worried that Sky's spell was not removed, while Stella was worried that Brandon would be hurt and felt bad that they left him behind.
Tecna sets up a device that allows a portal in the protective border, for thirty seconds. All the girls make it through but are caught by Griselda.
