The episode begins with the Winx discussing whether to experiment with the Water Stars first or go shopping.
They agree on experimenting first, then going shopping later. At the lab, they noticed that the Water Stars aren't activating.
Stella suggests to hit them with a burst of magic, yet that will bring out a negative reaction. Aisha then thought of trapping the Water Stars into a Morphix ball, then transfer the energy. However, Bloom summons the Water Star with her Dragon Fire, yet Musa tells her that if it can defeat Valtor, then it could defeat her as well.
Later on, the Trix encounter Valtor who looked down because the fairies, specialists, and witches were teaming up together. He admits to want to spell himself into oblivion, in which Darcy voluenteers to, but caught his attention to continue in collecting spells, specifically from Alfea.

- Stella (while holding a Water Star): "Maybe we should hit them with a burst of magic to get it going."
- Tecna: "I'm not sure Stella; it could bring out a negative reaction."
- Musa (after a pause, analyzing the Water Stars): "We don't want to blow up the science lab."
- Stella (dryly): "Been there, done that."
- Stella briefly refers to the accident that got her expelled before the first season while the Winx were experimenting at the science lab.
- When the Winx transform, Aisha's Enchantix when she was blind, is accidently used.
- When Valtor disappeared, Tecna's wings had the bottom limb of the wings on it.
