Episode Summary

Divide and Conquer
The W.I.T.C.H. girls go on a school skiing trip to show up Swiss exchange-student vamp Sondra, who seems to have mesmerized all the boys at Sheffield. Little do they know that Phobos wants to take advantage of this trip to divide them and separate the other four Guardians from Will and the Heart of Kandrakhar, the only thing that can activate their full powers.moreless

  • What Goes Up Must Ski Down!!!

    - Loved the episode. It was really funny and it had amazing lines. Finally we see the connection building up between Will and Matt.

    - There's nothing really bad about the episode, just lack of action.
  • This were one of the best 10 first episode...

    I love the fact that the girls doesnt know hot to skiin, it was funny when someone fall down..

    And the end is so funny (nobody like her because she have no accent)... It was realy a good episode, one of the best and the fight was so cool... My favorite is cornelia even if she is cold and anthipatic...shes really cool... Cedric is realy uggly, when i see i always laugh... I cant wait to see Elyon become bad (im just at the 10 episodes, (i listen the show on youtube)) 10/10

    ps:I love more the book but the show is realy great to...moreless
  • Will thinks Matt likes her because he's not staring at her...


    - We get to see a lot more of Matt, really defining his character in this episode

    - All the guys being obsessed with Sondra was hilarious

    - Great comedic scenes with Blunk, Sondra and Caleb

    - Great liner from Caleb about that Will doesn't like skiing, she doesn't like Sondra, so she's going skiing with Sondra

    - They finally reference the fact that their initials spell W.I.T.C.H. again


    - Not enough Meridian, and barely any action

    - This episode had barely had anything to do with dividing and conquering the guardians

    - Having Uriah in this episode would have been a good idea instead of having appear in episodes where he is out of placemoreless
  • ...About stupid Sondra!!! But at least she doesn't have powers like Will does, hehe! GO WILL!!!!!

    A new girl, Sondra, came to Sheffield, and her first day was... "charming"..., meaning that all of the guys in school are in love with her now! The girls are all angry at her, especially Will, because Sondra is stealing her sympathy, Matt Olsen. Later, the girls went on a ski trip, with Sondra, and Cedric after them. Will and Sondra got in an argument about Matt. Which one of them won a ski race, she'd sit next to Matt on the bus back to Heatherfield. However, Will has no idea how to ski, but she decided to cheat in her Guardian form. But, she'll have to watch out for Cedric...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: At the end when Matt asks "Did you guys hear that?" in reference to Sondra's fake accent, he's wearing his ski clothes and sweatband. A few moments later when Taranee is talking to Sondra we see Matt wearing his regular purple hoodie and his sweatband is gone.

    • Goof: At the end when Cornelia is dissing Sondra, we see her wearing lipstick while in schoolgirl mode.

    • Goof: When Hay Lin rushes off to save the rabbit from the fox, Will screams and the scene returns to her. As she's spiralling out of control, the back of her skirt of her W.I.T.C.H. outfit is missing, showing only the blue underwear.

    • Goof: In the ski-lift, the safety bar is behind Will, Cornelia, & Taranee. After that, it's in front of them.

    • Goof: During the race, Will's Guardian lipstick is missing at least once or twice when her mouth is uncovered.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Will: I think Matt likes me!
      Cornelia: What makes you think that?
      Will: He's not looking at me!

    • Taranee (after Cornelia has trapped Cedric in a net made of vines): Nice net. Do you do hammocks?
      Cornelia: Well, now what do we do with him?
      Irma: I vote we put him in Sondra's luggage.

    • Taranee (about Sondra): We're supposed to use our powers to fight evil, not snooty foreigners.
      Will: Trust me, she's evil.

    • Caleb: I'm no fun, huh? Well just tell that to my...SKIES!
      Will: You're kidding! They look like the deck planks from the Titanic.
      Yan Lin: Those babies served me well back in China!
      Hay Lin: They look like they served Genghis Khan back in China!
      Yan Lin: I got new skies now! I'm gonna carve me up some powder dudes!

    • Will: Ladies? We're going on a ski trip!
      Hay Lin: Uh, Will? You don't like skiing.
      Will (glaring at Sondra): I've found something else I dislike more.

    • Sondra: Surely you don't ski on those tiny little legs?
      Will: As surely as you can talk with that tiny little brain!

    • Will (to Matt): Would you like to ski down me, er, with me?

    • Caleb: Don't you know any spells or snow melting potions?
      Irma: We're not witches! It's just our initials.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Will: They look like the deck planks from the Titanic.
      The Titanic was a large luxury cruise ship built in 1912. On April 14, 1912, the massive liner struck into an iceberg and sunk into bottom of the Atlantic Ocean killing over 1500 people. The sinking of the Titanic caused massive media uproar, as the Titanic was said to have been technologically advanced and unsinkable. A box office hit movie by the same name was made in 1997 and starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

    • Hay Lin: They look like they served Genghis Khan back in China.
      Genghis Khan was a Mongolian military leader who founded and ruled the Mongol Empire during the 12th century. Genghis Khan was also known for his military genius and extreme tactics during his conquests over the Eurasian countries. During his campaigns, he induced fear in the hearts of his enemies through mass slaughter. After his death, Genghis Khan's successors and surviving family continued to expand the Mongol Empire up until the 17th century.

    • The kitty hat that Cornelia puts on Caleb's head bears a resemblance to ones worn by the characters Dejiko and Puchiko from the anime series Di Gi Charat.

    • Elyon: I bet she just watched, like, 20 Heidi movies before she came here.
      Heidi is a story focusing on events in the life of the title character, a young orphan girl, who lives with her grumpy hermit of a grandfather in the mountains. It was written as a children's book in 1880 by Johanna Spyri. There are numerous film or television productions of the original story including an anime series.

    • Taranee: She dissed me for not reading War And Peace in "ze original Russian."
      War and Peace is an epic historical novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869, which tells the story of Russia during the Napoleonic Era. This panoramic study of early 19th century Russian society, noted for its mastery of realistic detail and variety of psychological analysis, is generally regarded as one of the world's greatest novels.
