As you know, I’ve stopped writing episode reviews. But last week, a Winx fan named Will N. emailed me with a suggestion: how about guest episode reviews? Why not? Great idea!

Here’s Will’s review of “Baby Winx” (7X20). If you’d like to submit an episode review, too, email it to [email protected].


Review of Episode 7X20: “Baby Winx”

By: Will N.

Quick Recap: Back on Earth again (yawn!). The Winx are helping Roxy with an animal show to benefit the rescue park. Meanwhile, Kalshara and Brafilius try to cause trouble in any way possible like always (yawn again!), still searching for that First Color of the Universe. (How long is this search gonna last? Even Ogron didn’t waste this long trying to accomplish his goals.) This time, however, it involves the Winx being turned into seven-year-olds, and circus hijinks ensue as part of the benefits program.

Observations

  • Brafilius actually doing something smart for once. Too bad he has to undo it almost immediately.
  • Well, I guess the people who said Butterflix was based off circus clowns were right 😛
  • Are the guys being designated babysitters now?
  • Roxy’s as sassy as ever. Where was she when we needed her?
  • Why does Sky have to fight with Bloom’s unicorn? What does Elas have that Sky doesn’t?
  • Well, at least that Etno Chic outfit wasn’t ditched after two episodes; it stuck around for 4.

Loose ends

  • Sky, you’re clueless to not believe that a 7 year old, who strongly looks like your fiancée and has a pet unicorn, is not your fiancée turned into a kid when you live in a magical world on a daily basis.
  • Kalshara, you should stop relying on your brother.
  • Apparently, power is not restricted by age. Must be something to do with Believix or Enchantix.
  • Quote: “Yeah, I can’t leave you alone for more than ten minutes.” Well said, Roxy. Well said.

We’re now accepting guest posts! Our first one comes from a fan (who wants to stay anonymous) with an interesting theory: Rainbow may have planned different roles for Daphne and the Trix. Part I below is mainly about Daphne. Part II (which I’ll post tomorrow) will focus on the Trix.

Was Daphne Going to be Bloom’s Mother?
~ by an anonymous fan ~

My theory is that in the beginning, the story was supposed to be as follows:

In the old times of the Dragon, the nine nymphs ruled the Magic Dimension with Daphne as the greatest one of them. Later the Dragon disappeared, and Bloom was born to Daphne. Shortly after, the Ancestral Witches attacked Domino, and Daphne sent her across time and space to the modern-time Earth, while Daphne was locked in another dimension. The Ancestral Witches, having failed in their quest, later took on a younger appearance and became the Trix, which explains why the Trix were so powerful in S1.

And I think that at first, Bloom was meant to defeat the Trix (i.e. The Ancient Witches), and then find and free her mother Daphne from the dimension where she was locked. Then the story was changed in mid-production of season 1, and Daphne was turned into Bloom’s sister and the Trix into The Ancient Witches’ descendants.

There are a lot of hints towards this. Read the rest of this post
