Even though I watched “The Shark’s Eye” in Italian last month, I didn’t know exactly what Stella’s wish was — only that it involved her parents. That worried me. I’d been hoping she wouldn’t force them back together.
We don’t know why Radius and Luna split, but since episode 5X15, “The Pillar of Light,” we’ve made a few guesses. Radius is very prideful. He wouldn’t believe Luna about the eclipse, and he wouldn’t accept her help even when he was about to die! And Luna criticizes him too often. Did he really interrupt Stella when he asked what she meant by “a big day?” It didn’t seem that way to me.
Their fights usually end with one (or both) of them storming out of the room — in front of Stella.
In real life, marriage problems take months or years to solve. If Stella had just wished them away, it would have sent a bad message about relationships: that they’re easy to fix. If they were, would divorce exist?
I’m glad she asked for something that is a bit simpler: for them to listen to each other. Listening is an action. You don’t have to agree with what the other person says, but you have to keep your mouth closed to hear it. Radius and Luna were too stubborn to do that, which is why they fought so often.
What they do now is their decision. Stella realizes they won’t get back together, but if they can talk with each other normally, it’ll bring some peace back to their family and their kingdoms.
And at least Stella was able to bring them together for one evening.
QUESTION: How did you feel about Stella’s wish? What would you have done in her position?

I’ll be uploading toy reviews and some news on there. Plus, I’m working on a few Winx Club projects, so you’ll see videos about them, too.
Here’s the first video: a review of the Bloom and Aisha McDonald’s Happy Meal toys. Let me know what you think, and share your own review of these toys in the comments!
This episode mainly tied up loose ends, but it was decent overall. After Bloom’s short adventure in Shark Eye Mountain — where she almost got crushed — the last nine minutes belonged to Stella, her parents’ drama, and her fashion show.
But this was a different Stella than we’ve seen throughout this season. She showed a lot of maturity and humility by sharing her feelings with her parents and admitting her mistakes to Brandon. I think she redeemed herself. Do you?
Next episode: “Saving Paradise Bay.” Tritannus attacks a lush island for no reason, and the Winx must find a stone called The Breath of the Ocean to restore it. Ready for some bad news? We’ll have to wait two weeks (May 26) to see this. Nick is airing the movie Cats & Dogs on May 19 during Winx Club‘s time slot.
The good news: we’ll still get our weekly dose of Winx magic! Winx Club: Magical Adventure premieres Monday (yes, MONDAY), May 20 at 8 p.m. Don’t miss it!
In “Sirenix Power,” guide Bloom through the Infinite Ocean to collect hearts to exchange for Sirenix spells. Use them to defeat Tritannus and save the Selkies — and the Magic Dimension!
You can also buy bonus content like a second avatar (Stella), extra hearts, and four levels in the dangerous Shark Eye Mountain.
