Plot

WCEp311(1)

Mirta wonders why Lucy attacked them.

After the attempt to seize Alfea, Mirta is in her room, upset. She could not fathom that her childhood friend, Lucy and the other witches would attack them; she ponders for a reason and heads for Cloud Tower. The Winx themselves head to Gloomy Wood Forest in search of Faragonda. Meanwhile, in Cloud Tower, the Trix complain about the fairies of Alfea and how they managed to defeat them. Valtor on the other hand blames the Trix for their failure.

WCEp311(2)

Flora points to the direction Valtor went.

They are in shock that he would reprimand them. He then mentions that he "hopes" to find someone worthy enough to share his power. This appeals the Trix immensely as this would mean that one of them can have Valtor (and power) all to herself. He then tasks them to keep an on Griffin who had been trying to escape from her cell. After searching, the Winx have difficulty determining where Faragonda and Valtor are.

WCEp311(3)

Stormy spots Mirta with the Winx.

Flora uses her nature powers and the trees lead them to Cloud Tower. While the Winx travel to Cloud Tower, the Pixies stay behind looking for more clues on Faragonda's whereabouts.vAt Cloud Tower, the Winx run into a worried Mirta, who wishes to know what happened to Lucy and the other witches. With no answers, the Winx and Mirta enter the school. They then stumble upon the witches, where they are suspended animation to recharge their energy so that they can fight again.

WCEp311(4)

Griffin tells them to find the Vault Monsters.

They then hear some strange sounds and go out into the halls to checks. They see the doors disappearing and are then surrounded by Zarathustra, Ediltrude (both in their monstrous forms) and witches. They transform (minus Mirta) to defend themselves. In Griffin's office, the Trix are complaining to Valtor again. Irritated, he asks why they are here despite the task given to them.

WCEp311(5)

The pixies find Faragonda.

Darcy explains that their dark talents are wasted on guard duty, to which Icy responds that the action is where their enemies are. Stormy takes a look at the crystal ball and notices that Mirta is there. The Trix then explain who she is and Valtor sees her as a weak link, using her as bait for the Winx. The girls take care of their threats. Mirta then spots Lucy, but it was actually a trap.

WCEp311(6)

A mysterious person appears and spies on the Winx.

Valtor then comes to battle the fairies, and negates their convergence. The fairies do not realize that it was not their convergence which was blocked, only their ability to touch one another. After a heated battle between Valtor and the Winx, the witches, Zarathustra and Ediltrude inform Valtor that Griffin is trying to escape again. He orders them to deal with the Winx while he strengthens Griffin's prison bars. The Winx eventually learn of what Valtor's spell actually does and so, they use convergence at a distance from one another thereby defeating the witches, Zarathustra and Ediltrude.

~Valtor and the Trix~

The Trix's individually plotting to win Valtor's affections.

The only problem, a magical hand arises from the rubble and start attacking the Winx. While they flee, Mirta leads them to safety in unconnected tunnels. They then hear something further down the tunnels and investigate it. They see Valtor strengthen Griffin's lock up spell, they remain hidden until the evil wizard leaves and greet the school's headmistress. Once Griffin learns that Faragonda is missing she tells the girls to seek out Cloud Tower's Guardians, for they hear and see everything that happens within the castle walls.

The Winx find them, but they are under Valtor's control. Aisha then uses her fairy dust to set them free. Gratefully, the Guardians tell the Winx what happened to Faragonda. During their own search for Faragonda, the pixies were attacked by Felinors, but, thanks to Amore, all they had in their hearts was love. Also, because of the decrease in negative energy, Lockette was able to track down Faragonda. When the Winx returned to the Pixies, they found Faragonda trapped in an old oak tree. The Winx then promise Faragonda that they will save her.
