  • W.I.T.C.H. gets attacked by their enemies in the dream world.

    Their situation reminds me of Dream Stalker from Xiaolin Showdown, because Raimundo's subconscious was tampered with by Hannibal Bean, except the part where his fear of jellyfish came to life. Anyway, I thought the whole lucid dream scene is pretty cool. Imagine, the ability to control your dream, not to be confused with the out of body experince thing. I bet that would take a lot of concentration to master this art. Oh and the part where W.I.T.C.H. became their own element, awesome! That would've been very useful for Raimundo, I mean I know he can change into his Wudai form, but it would've been really cool if he actually became the wind element. That way if Raimundo was about to get punched in the stomach, his opponent wouldn't be able to hurt him. Kinda like Hay-lin's elemental power.moreless
  • Will battles off Cedric, Irma takes on Tracker and Martin, Taranee goes neck-to-neck with Frost, Cornelia has to contend with Caleb, Raythor and Gargoyle and Hay Lin witnesses Miranda eating her grandma...?moreless


    - After three episode of only appearing in the opening scene, Nerissa finally makes her real debut

    - I liked how each dream the girls had had to do with their personal life problems

    - The subplot about moving away back to Fadden Hills was well done on behalf of Will and Susan's parts

    - I liked how every dream had Nerissa's trill in it except for Taranee's

    - We finally get to see Susasn Vandom's assistant Amanda Bolland

    - I loved the Macgruder scenes, they were just so funny

    - The girls becoming their elements was cool and essential for the season finale

    - Martin appears for the first time in this season besides a quick cameo in the last episode


    - The whole dream sequence wasn't totally clear and made the episode a little weird in feel

    - There wasn't that much real battling going on but the plot was good of coursemoreless
  • effects: 3.5/3 events: 3.5/3 humor: 2/3 overall: 9

    great episode! they enhanced the idea that behind comix #16-17, and #19, to make this episode to be long enough. and they did it well. based on 4 different comixes- new record:

    #14: the guardians go to SimulTeck (Heatherfield branch) to save Will from re-transportion to Faden Hills. somehow they don't need to blow up the boss's safe here- what that made them lose their powers in the comix. and here Cornelia goes with them.

    #16-17: Nerissa invades to the guardians' dreams. the first victim in the comix was Will, and then Hay.

    #19: the famous common sleepover (to beat Nerissa in common dream)- but the one that in the comix was in Cornelia's house. here it's in Will's house. well, they had excuse: to say goodbay to Will.moreless
  • And now, after 4 episodes, W.I.T.C.H. finally meets with their new foe: Nerissa. This maybe the best episode yet!

    Will is having a bad dream aboutthe girls being defeated, and Matt being eaten by Cedric (not exactly what I was hoping for when I watched this episode...). Then she wakes up and screams, when she realizes she was sleeping in school. Professor Collins calls her mom to discuss about this little accident, when it leads to Will moving out of Heatherfield back to Fadden Hills. This results in chaos, not only for her friends, but for the W.I.T.C.H. team as well. They wouldn't be able to protect Earth, Meridian, and the infinite dimensions from their new threat. So the girls decided to destroy the papers that clarify Will's moving out. They were to hide inside the building and wait when everyone leaves to do this, so they fell asleep: Will in the same room as Hay Lin, Irma in the same room as Cornelia, and Taranee alone. They had no idea that Nerissa would attack them in their dreams right now. So Will and Hay Lin shared a dream where they were held hostage in the restaurant, cleaning, by Yan Lin, Irma and Cornelia shared a dream where Irma was the pickle queen, and Taranee dreamt she failed to do a math formula...moreless
  • this has to be the best episode so far!

    i loved this episode! this wasn't your usual 'oh the bad guy has turned up and caused trouble we better fight them!' problem! it was quite a threat to the guardians because if the Knights won in their dreams, they beat the guardians altogether which meant they had to be tactical and figure out how to save themselves. plus they had to stop Will's mum from moving them back to Fadden Hills or whatever it was called! great episode overall and i can't wait for the next one!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Nitpick: Irma was supposed to have a sore throat when she woke up because of her dream. But when Taranee wakes her up telepathically, Irma says to Cornelia,"You move me over!", and her voice is fine.

    • Goof: When Will enters the collective dream, her hair shows green spots and pinkish after-images are visible.

    • Look hard: When Cornelia and Irma are sleeping in the closet, watch where Cornelia's hand ends up...

    • Visible on the blackboard in Taranee's nightmare is the formula E = mc 2, a famous theoretical physics equation discovered by Albert Einstein.

  • QUOTES (8)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Nerissa attacking the Guardians through nightmares in this episode is based on the ongoing plot of issues #16 & 17 of the W.I.T.C.H. comic-books.

    • Before the US premiere on July 14, 2006 on Toon Disney, this episode aired in Canada on June 18, 2006 on The Family Channel.


    • Will: This message will self-destruct in one, two…

      This is an allusion to Mission: Impossible, the famous espionage series from the mid-60's and early 70's which returned to television for three seasons from 1988 to 1990 and later became a film trilogy starring Tom Cruise as top-secret agent Ethan Hunt.

    • Taranee: Pay no attention to the psychic invader behind the curtain?

      This marks the second allusion made in the show to the 1939 movie "The Wizard of Oz" (the first one being in episode It Resumes). Taranee's line is a reference to the famous line uttered by the Wizard himself (after Dorothy's dog Toto pulls back the curtain behind which he was hiding): "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."
