Apparently the episodes Nick had released were back to back, making for some form of a one घंटा special. The upside to this is that I won't have to wait to tear this episode apart, limb from limb. The downside...? Well, it's having to watch two of these in a row. But apparently everyone else get their Bloomix transformation in this one, so let's see how this goes.
Of course we start off at Limphea...again. Okay, I know that a few seasons have had episodes go off of each other (Like when Tecna fell into the Omega Portal) but I don't think they have spent over
three episodes in the same location, still
dealing with the same problem. Doing this over and over again does not make the pacing of the दिखाना any better. It makes me bored to know that a new episode we've waited over a महीना for, will still take place in the same location that the one before it did. If an older episode did this, I cut it some slack. Why? Because it came out on time.
A concept Nick doesn't seem to understand.
Anyways, we see Stella grab Layla and pulls her away from the site of the two petrified boys [Roy and Nex], trying to get her to pull it together so they can defeat the monsters and make it out okay. I'm sorry, but now you're screwing up who Layla was too? In season two, she didn't care about boys at all.
Frankly, she was the one who always stepped up to try and one-up the Specialist. Even in season three when she first met Nabu, she didn't like him. Now all of a sudden she's like, "omg boyz i cannot live without dem." Really guys.
As the "basilisks" continue to attack, the Winx wonder how they're going to get rid of the monsters without their powers. Uh hello, Flora just earned her freaking Bloomix over here. Why don't आप make her do all the dirty-work? And I प्यार Tecna's line here, "And we only have a piece
of the dragon flame." Yeah cuz, this whole new transformation isn't sensationalizing that power one bit.
Flora tells a few of the Specialists to try and distract a few of the "basilisks" while they try and figure out a plan. We see one of the freshman witches try and take one of the guys down (And is it me, या do all the witches seem to shoot these generic, dark looking beams? Just because they're witches doesn't mean we can't have the same amount of power/move diversity that परियों have) but she obviously fails. One of the "basilisks" ends up chasing both Musa and Tecna, Musa then--using her magic...? Whoa, whoa, whoa--where did that come from? I thought they didn't have any powers until they achieved their Bloomix? And they certainly
didn't get it. How can Musa suddenly use magic again? I know she has a part of the dragon आग in her, but it only seems to be activated when they gain this new form. If she can use magic, why didn't they allow Flora to use magic to save her sister? This show's become about as consistent as "Glee".
So they eventually realize that there are "basilisks" everywhere, Stella and Layla being the target of two which are headed straight for them. Not having any magic to do to defend themselves (Unlike Musa...*throws the canon logic Nick themselves established in a fire*) Layla reminds Stella of this triple back-flip thing she taught them how to do in training. The two perform the हटाइए just as these "basilisks" began shooting their petrifying beams at them; the two monsters turning themselves
into stone and smashing into pieces as they hit the ground (Well I guess we now know what would happen if they turned a fairy into stone while she was still in flight...quick, one of आप use Bloom as a human shield!). As they land, they congratulate each other on their 'accomplishment' and...earn their Bloomix?
Okay hold the fuck up. Lemme see here...aha! "A fairy needs to have at least a part of the Dragon's Flame's power to earn Bloomix." Alright, we got that part, now what do they need to do again? "To finish, she needs to do a special good deed." Hmm...yes, now please, explain to me how spinning and defeating two enemies is a "special good deed"? Like seriously now. All the new transformations that they're getting, are seriously just being handed to them. It really started in season four, with those stupid Gifts of Destiny. Like, "omg its cold? lovix!11" What was the point of those things? And with Harmonix, "omg we opened a book; luk new powerzz!" and even with Believix all they had to do was make Roxy's realize that she was a fairy. Now all they have to do to earn this 'special' transformation is defeat an enemy? Imagine if they just had to do that to earn Enchantix. "omg valtor sent a creature. kill it!11!! omg luk new powerzz lul." Talk about lazy.
After they transform (And what is up with Layla getting these shitty hairstyles, like seriously) Stella uses her new-found powers to get rid of the remaining basilisks and return the petrified परियों and Specialists back to normal. Well that was easy, why didn't आप do something like that, Flora? A few of the freshman try picking a fight with the nature fairy, but they're easily swatted away.
We finally return back to the uh..."battle" that was going on between Bloom and Icy (Btw guys, comeback. Bloom says, "You better watch yourself Icy." Icy should have gone, "Yeah well आप better check yourself before आप wreck yourself." And then deflect one of her attacks, causing Bloom to hit herself and knock herself out. लोल आप done fucked up son). Nothing really happens because Bloom brings Icy's attention to the retreating freshman, she (Along with her sisters...who just magically re-appear) heading back to Cloudtower; deciding that they were going to leave Limphea.
Back on the college grounds, everyone is celebrating from the victory and the Trix finally leaving. Various परियों say their thanks to the Winx girls (Even though Bloom didn't do jack shit) and Flora says goodbye to her little sister Miele, hoping to see her once again.
We're taken back to Alfea where the Winx, for some reason, are in class--even though we've clearly established in the past that they are guardian परियों and have freaking graduated from Alfea (That's why they were teachers in season four, guys). But, that head-canon aside, Daphne finally enters, explaining to the girls that she has been invited to the Golden Auditorium, the most prestigious संगीत academy in all of the magical realms (By the way, she says that going to this place will help the 'students' "further understand our studies". So the Winx are still
in school? I understand that आप can come back to college to study some और courses and what-not, but when आप शामिल होइए college, आप should
be around eighteen. I know this दिखाना was made in Italy and the age for going to higher levels of education are slightly different, but if you're going to be producing this दिखाना in America, and the target audience are American, I'm pretty sure आप should be sticking to our education system. Which आप clearly aren't).
We see Musa call Riven, she trying to explain to him where they've been invited and how important it is to her. But all he seems to be interested in is practicing and becoming a better fighter. Obviously this doesn't end well, Musa asking Tecna, "Why do I even try anymore?" It's a valid question. Riven is a douche, so why do आप keep insisting on making this relationship work? Tecna doesn't pay attention (Good...no1curr) and Musa obviously gets upset, Tecna explaining that she has to work on some math homework. Musa just ignores this and starts practicing before Tecna tells her to stop; Musa getting all defensive and prissy. Musa, ya know, I've always been neutral towards your character, but right now, that attitude is really starting to piss me off. Just because you're having relationship issues, doesn't mean आप should take your anger out on other people (Especially your best friend!). If आप want to relax द्वारा music, why don't आप be courteous and listen to it via ear-buds? Tecna is trying to work and study for an exam
so, so sorry that she doesn't want आप playing a fucking electric guitar
We finally see what this hoytey-toytey school looks like, Musa basically gushing the way in while saying the names of various old musicians (Greek names...smooth). Daphne soon introduces the Winx to the school's headmistress (Who looks to be around 20...despite knowing Daphne who's obviously been gone for और than 19 years). The woman asks if she can speak to Daphne privately, Daphne sending the Winx off to explore (And is it strange that they're the only ones there? Didn't Daphne say that the entire
class was going to this school? Did she just forget या were the other kids not important enough?). The headmistress begins to speak to Daphne about the Trix, she thinking that they might have और to them than meets the eye.
We're finally taken to Cloudtower where Icy rants how unfair it is that the Winx just keep getting और and और transformations--which आप gotta admit, is pretty true. She tells Selina to pick another monster, while she and her sisters go off to conquer another magical school. While Selina is flipping through the Legendarium, a man (Asharon? Idk) says that he is watching her, and tells her that she's getting stronger (Obvious plot point is obvious...plus, is it just me, या does he sound an awful lot like Tritannus?).
Back at the Auditorium, we see the Winx enter inside their संगीत hall where several परियों are performing (Mainly on string instruments). A few of the girls venture of, playing a few of the instruments (Btw, "magia violin" my butt, that's a viola. It's wider and looks even bigger than the one the girl was playing. And how the hell does Layla know how to play it just as well, and know the exact same song as the students, when she's never practiced? I'd kill just to be able to do that).
Cora (Go away we want Tune) asks Musa why the संगीत कार्यक्रम hall was built so far away from everything, Musa explaining the story of the pandemonium sprites (Love Tecna's line though. "Allegedly, just saying." It's the truth though, guys. Always सवाल everything. Don't just believe something because आप see या hear it. Always सवाल whatever new information you're दिया in life). She says that underneath the school there is a system of caves, and that these creatures would come up from them to ruin the संगीत coming from the halls.
Back at Cloudtower, Selina is flipping through the Legendarium when she just coincidentally comes across the exact same story; she releasing the monsters into the halls of the संगीत school.
With the Winx, Musa once again begins to कुतिया, मतलबी and moan at Tecna. Seriously, what's your problem? She starts snapping at Tecna, saying that she isn't taking an interest in the instruments या the school itself (Btw, "Who says I'm not taking an interest in this place?"; "Uh me." कुतिया, मतलबी much?).Really though, just because someone might not find something as fascinating as आप do, doesn't mean आप have to be a total Catch U अगला Tuesday *ahem look at the first letters* towards people. If I acted the same way towards my फ्रेंड्स because they didn't really like metal as much as I do, well then I doubt I'd have very many friends. Seriously Musa, you're the one who needs to 'relax'. But before Musa can complain anymore, the sprites suddenly appear, the Winx jumping into action; Bloom transforming into her Sirenix while the others (Minus Musa and Tecna) transform into their Bloomix (Btw what's with this intense like, effect going on behind Musa? The only other time I've seen this used is in an ऐनीमे so...why).
Musa: "Senpai when will आप notice meeee."
The four of them [Bloom, Stella, Layla and Flora] try taking out the critters, but it becomes apparent rather quickly that these things are stronger than they look; they using sound waves to not only block the Winx's attack, but to knock the group out as well--leaving only Musa and Tecna behind. Musa decides that it would be best to lead them on with music, creating a शहनाई, क्लैरिनेट out of magic (Again, wtf) and beginning to play it, soon leading the rats into the caves (And this is not
a clarinet. Not only does it not sound like one, but I don't think any
instrument in that category sounds anything like whatever she's playing. Not even an oboe, and that would be my सेकंड guess).
They start walking around the cave, noticing that the sprites have finally arrived; they using their voices to make stalactites fall from the ceiling, causing the formations to rain down upon Musa and Tecna. Musa soon comes up with the idea to use her voice to fight back, and...? *Sigh* Whoever sang did a really good job. Seriously, whoever sang that, प्रॉप्स to you. Compared to the whiny obnoxiousness of the Sirenix and Bloomix theme, that was just कैन्डी to the ears. That immediately turned खट्टा when they earned their Bloomix afterwards (And I gotta ask...what was their courageous act? Maybe standing up against the rats without any magic? But Tecna and Musa believing in each other is really what got the transformation started. This isn't Believix, dammit).
The two start using their new abilities, with Musa using her voice once again (Ah...pretty noise) while Tecna amplifies it; causing the sprites to basically explode ("agGH its too fab!!11! *explodes*). We see that everyone is alright, the headmistress thanking Tecna and Musa for not only the beautiful song, but finding a way to defeat the sprites (And Daphne though, "I can't believe आप two came up with this in the midst of such pandemonium
We see that the Winx have returned to Alfea, Bloom walking about and getting upset when she assumes she hears Tecna and Musa fighting again. But, surprise, it's all good; Tecna creating an amplifier for Musa's गिटार which she can listen to through her headphones (Boom. What did I say, what did I say?).
Back at Cloudtower, we see that the Trix have taken to conquering the fairy school on Eraklyon. While a few परियों are off cowering in the distance, we see an all too familiar face appear in front of them. *dun, DuN, DUN* It's Diaspro! Yes, she's back. She tells the Trix (Oh god her voice is annoying) that she wants to शामिल होइए them, saying that she'll make their powers stronger.
We see a पूर्व दर्शन of the अगला episode of Daphne's...coronation ceremony? WHAT THE HELL? Daphne is just a princess? How is that fair? Bloom is अगला in line for queen, but Daphne is just a princess
? *Flips table* How is that fair? Can आप imagine the conversation between her and Marion? "Daphne, I know you're our eldest daughter whom we haven't seen in years and was the अगला heiress to the throne, but...it's obvious that your father and I प्यार one और than the other." But all is not well, and Diaspro appears at the celebration as well, the पूर्व दर्शन leaving us on...everyone trying to get Bloom's precious dragon flame. eUUUGH. I am just--you know what? No. I am done complaining. I am not
going to give people the satisfaction of knowing that Bloom's attention pisses me off. Fuck the dragon fire. I hope it's the devil's आग and Bloom made a deal to get that power; a hell hound eventually coming to get her into hell for her dues.
*sighs* I'm the Winx-Critic, I remember it so आप don't have to. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to listen to Kamelot's "The Great Pandemonium" to help calm my soul...
