    PROS



    - The animation for this season looks a little bit better and more magical than 3-D and high-tech



    - I liked how Nerissa collected Raythor, Miranda, Frost, Gargoyle, Sandpit, and Tracker into the Knights of Vengeance



    - I liked the storyline of Taranee breaking rules because she thought she would become anonymous again



    - I loved the scene at the beginning where Nerissa attacks Drake, Aldarn, Vathek and Tynar



    - Galgheita Rudolph makes an unimportant, but notable reappearance here.



    - I liked the emotional scenes of the girls telling Elyon her status on Earth and Caleb talking to Cornelia



    CONS



    - Why was Caleb's hair blue in the dark?



    - I think they needed to have a little more of Taranee as her part of the episode seemed rush with her only doing two bad things



    - The Frost going to Earth plot was kind of minor and unneeded although I did like the actionmoreless

    7.0
    first episode of the season- great one, based on 3 different comix books:



    1) #12- the celebration in Meridian. in the comix Elyon lecturing victory speech (or what the words in english?), and the crown of light makes her glowing. here Taranee telling warriors tales to kids- great scene, and everybody else dances.



    2) #13- Frost the hunter, running away from the authorities of Meridian after Elyon's coronation, decides to revenge who that made his life miserable: the guardians. in the comix he first finds out what's the kiddy form of the fire guardians, and then he wants the others. in the show he finds Taranee and Will in the end. in both the guardians fight back, but in the comix it's his last appearance.



    3) #23- Caleb stays in Meridian. chronogically, in the comix, it was after Nerissa's saga.moreless

    Everyone is celebrating Phobos's defeat, thinking the danger has passed, but another one is about to appear. While everyone is at Elyon's coronation party, they have no idea what is happening in the Mage's lair. Aldarn, Drake, Vathek and Tynar are guarding Phobos and Miranda, when a lightning bolt hit Drake and an old woman, Nerissa, appeared at the entrance. The guys charged at her, but she raised her hand and said: "Quintessence" and their weapons came to life. She then approached Miranda's cage and freed her, when Phobos started complaining. Nerissa and Miranda left. Meanwhile, Caleb told Cornelia that he can't come back to Heatherfield with her, because his job is guarding Elyon and Meridian. So, the girls went back to Earth, while Nerissa gathered more old W.I.T.C.H. foes: Raythor, Frost, Miranda, Tracker, Gargoyle and Sandpit, with their sole purpose of revenge on W.I.T.C.H....moreless
  • just as the guardians think everything has ended, suddenly they are faced with a new enemy! this was a great way to start off the new series!

    9.5
    normally i don't always like the first episode of a series, because even though they have a good storyline, they are much more boring than the rest of the episodes as it is mostly just introducing characters or giving us facts about the show. but Disney did really well with this one because they made it so we knew what was going on, but still added in excitement so we wern't disappointed with the new series! i can't wait for the rest of the episodes!moreless
  • Anonymous Taranee ties to come out and she tries to not fall inthat category again.

    This was funny! I like this character and they made her look like Harry Potter with the scarf but it was so funny that she wanted to be known. I wasn't sure if she wasn't doing it to get attention or to keep away from the mysterious guy.
