  • Springtime for Heatherfield!!!

    - A great episode!!! The Astral Drops were funny and I was laughing so hard when they were performing. I loved the scene at the end where we see the Seal of Phobos which is one of my favorite magical items from the series.
  • The toughest battle yet that W.I.T.C.H. has to face is a matter of life and death, against a moving block of sand?


    - I liked the concept of Sandpit and the rumor scenes were great, with a reappearance of Vathek and a cameo of Frost the Hunter

    - The concept of Astral Drops is really awesome and the play was funny

    - I really liked the story about the nymph Xin Jin, the Jade Emperor and the four dragons

    - Rebel action and we see more of Aldarn and his Earth habits

    - The first episode in which the Guardians of the Veil do exactly what they are supposed to


    - The Sandpit battle was rushed a little bit so it was kind of hard to remember Sandpit in season two

    - The introduction of the Seal of Phobos was kind of confusing, good thing we are better explained to it twelve episodes latermoreless
  • i think it was very funny and hilarious.very humourous.and witch learns about their astral drops for the first time.

    this was one cool episode and i find very enjoyable.i think that it was very funny and hilarious and very humourous as well.and witch also learns about their astral drops for the first time whiach is a bad thing as they do not know what to do and create mayhem and confusion during the show.it was a enjoyable episode and also a memorable one.it shows another power about witch and the heartof candracar.this revealed that the heart of candracar is very powerful and the surprises it has in store are magical.and yan lin revealed this to them so she must be a very important person as she has revealed alot of things to the guardians so far.moreless
  • events: 2.5/3 effects: 2/3 humor: 3/3 overall: 7.5

    nice episode- the show of Hay Lin based on the show that showed in comix #9. but here it is not near xmas- at least not by the timeline. so what the reason of the show by this episode? they didn't say. intresting me what the crowd thought about Blunk- very short student? in the comix 2 students from Hay's class, Lenny and Harry, showing too in the show, and Irma was glad to appear in the show. there were tryouts before the show. they could add it- it could be intresting, with the Grumpers' bothers (first appearance in this comix).moreless
  • An ambush, of course... We should've known!

    Phobos and Cedric are trying to discover the traitor among the guards that helped Caleb escape his prison cell, so they told some guards that the Seal of Phobos, a jewel that opens up portals, the Infinite City, and the Book of Secrets, has been found. The guards spread the rumour, and it got to Caleb, through Vathek. He immediately went to Meridian for it. A so-called caretaker which has the Seal ended up to be Cedric in disguise. He trapped Caleb in a puddle of sand, and now the Guardians have to save him, but they're preoccupied because of a school play they star in, so Yan Lin had to teach them a very useful new Guardian trick...moreless
