Finally! The last episode of season six — which, by the way, premieres Sunday, Nov. 22 at 10 a.m. EST on Nick Jr., followed by the premiere of season seven at 10:30 a.m. EST. We’ve waited a long time for this, haven’t we?
And you’ve waited a long time for this review. Sorry, guys. 😳 I’ve had a hard time adjusting to my school schedule. (So glad this semester’s almost over.)
Let’s wrap this season up, shall we?
1. The Winx (minus Bloom) are still fighting the Great Lizard Spirit. Selina wants to help, but thanks to Acheron’s spell, she’s powerless. Suddenly, a surge of energy bursts out of the Legendarium, restoring her magic. This means Bloom defeated Acheron!
The only thing I liked was when Selina got her power back. The visuals were pretty cool. (Confession: I like the new animation.) I’ll gripe about the rest of this scene later.
2. Bloom’s fighting the Trix in the Legendarium World. After a few minutes, Icy freezes her Mythix wand and knocks it — and her — to the ground. Since they’re stuck forever, they plan to have fun torturing Bloom for the rest of their lives. They trap her in The Cage of Sorrow, a magic sphere that slowly saps her energy.
Wow! This was a decent fight scene — definitely the best that’s taken place in the Legendarium World. The pace was faster, and Bloom didn’t let herself get hit like she did when she fought Acheron. (Seriously, she could have dodged those fireballs.) She even taunted Stormy and Darcy when she hit them!
Is this “safe” to air on Nick Jr.? 😕 I can see the tweets already:
- “Bloom’s a bad role model for little girls!”
- “This show’s too violent! My four-year-old doesn’t need to see this!”
3. Selina figures out the Lizard Spirit’s secret: it’s fueled by the magic the Trix stole from the schools. She goes in Cloud Tower and releases the magic from the dragon skeleton. The schools get their energy back, and the Lizard Spirit dissolves.
I’ll talk about Selina later, but here’s something that bothered me about this scene: the Lizard Spirit got beaten by an instakill gimmick. Most of the monsters in this season did. Are the Winx not allowed to attack till the monster’s dead anymore? 😕
4. Drawing on the power of love and friendship, Bloom gives herself an energy boost. She breaks out of the Trix’s cage, traps them in bubbles, then teleports out of the Legendarium World.
Winx Club went Sailor Moon on us! 😛 This isn’t the first time a Winx has used emotion to boost her power, but I’m sure it’s never happened like this before! I couldn’t take it seriously! Is it just me, or are we starting to see more anime influence in this show?
5. After Bloom and Selina make up, Bloom tries to lock the Legendarium. The Key won’t turn! Turns out not just anyone can use it. It has to be Selina. Now that she’s helped them win, the Winx trust her with the Key. Acheron and the Trix are trapped in the book forever.
I liked this twist. Selina got to clean up the mess she made herself. Plus, hearing the Trix begging her to let them out was pretty funny. 😛 (Are they really trapped forever? Maybe, maybe not. You know how tenacious they are.)
6. Life goes back to normal. Selina returns the Legendarium to Eldora and asks to be her student again so she can become a better fairy (yes, fairy). Griffin goes back to being headmistress of Cloud Tower. The Winx and the guys attend Daphne and Thoren’s wedding, where the happy couple finally gets hitched without a hitch.
So obligatory party at Alfea. Except this time, it’s a wedding at Domino Palace. Congratulations to the future king and queen of Domino.
Really, Nickbow? You had Kiko catch the bouquet? 😛 I guess the Winx aren’t marrying their boyfriends any time soon.
My prediction: wait till the final season. The couples will say “I do” at Alfea, and Rainbow will try one more time to make us think Bloom and Sky aren’t meant to be. He’ll go missing, Diaspro will try to steal him (for the millionth time), Erakylon will be attacked, etc. (Note: I’m making this up! We’ll see if I’m right.) Read the rest of this post
