Crazy theory time! 😛
Roxy, on the other hand, has disappeared. We haven’t seen her since “The Flying School” when she adopted Griffin the crow. Will we see her again this season? It’s hard to guess.
But remember that blurb on Nick Animation Studio’s Winx page? And her profile on Nick.com? If Roxy’s not hanging out with the Winx at all anymore, why do these sites still suggest she’ll join the club?
Here’s my theory: Daphne is her placeholder.
Think about it:
- Daphne wore yellow/gold as a spirit. Most of us, I bet, thought she’d keep that color when she became corporeal again. (Google fanmade Sirenix designs for her.) Nope — she switched to pale green, which belonged to Roxy. If Daphne won’t become a Winx, maybe she’s wearing that color so we’ll get used to seeing it in the group again.
- Roxy’s a Charmix fairy/pseudo-Believix fairy, so she’ll look out of place with the other Winx. So does Daphne. She’s a Sirenix fairy surrounded by Bloomix fairies. Does it bother you? If not, maybe you won’t mind Roxy standing out.
- As I’ve said, the rumor is Nickbow ditched Roxy because the writers couldn’t handle seven main characters. Maybe Daphne’s the guinea pig. If they can script her into the story well, they can work with Roxy. (Your mileage may vary on if they’re doing a good job.) As a bonus, we get used to seeing seven Winx again.
Or maybe I’m reading between the lines as usual. An easy counterargument is, “Why wouldn’t they just use Roxy?” Because Daphne’s stronger? 😳
I don’t know. File this post away under “wishful thinking.”
