  • Here's another great and character developing (the Knights of Destruction) Irma, and Martin episode for all you "'loser' loving", hehe, just kidding, fans out there.

    Nerissa paid a visit to Matt, disguised as Will, and luckily Huggles discovered her, but Matt didn't, so she took both of them to her previous cell atop Mount Thanos... On Earth, two boys are starting to get noticed by the two boyfriend-less girls in the W.I.T.C.H. team: Hay Lin is still chasing her crush, Eric Linden, but without him noticing her, and Irma is chasing her crush, Andrew Hornby, avoiding Martin, but she won't be avoiding him for long, since she signed up to be in charge of the new school radio station, along with him, Uriah, and the Grumper Sisters... Meanwhile, Nerissa created a replacement for the disappointing Knights of Vengeance. She turned Matt into Shagon, the angel of malice, a creature that feeds on the hatred of it's enemies. She also turned Mr. Huggles into Khor, a beast of legend feeding on the anger of it's enemies. But that wasn't enough for Nerissa, so she created two more creatures: Tridart, feeding on fear and desperation; and Ember, feeding on pain and misery. So the girls are gonna need very positive feelings in their upcoming battle against the Knights of Destruction, but that will be hard, since they have a lot of problems and troubles...moreless
  • omg! major spoilers coming up everybody!

    i can\'t believe matt has gone evil! i mean matt! god what on earth will Will do when she finds out! it\'s like corny losing caleb cso he\'s been captured! she\'d flip! i mean i know nerissa is evil but that is just taking the biscuit! i hated her before but now i really, really hate her! but i don\'t get that if they were having that massive battle through the city, and smashing into buildings and stuff, why didn\'t they attract a large crowd! it doesn\'t make sense! heck tv never makes sense but even i would notice if there were flying people and monsters attacking each other and flying about! o well loved the ep anyway!moreless
  • Matt disappears and a new set of knights appear.

    A well rounded episode. Although this show is mainly about the relation between Irma and Martian, I liked how the others were put into it when the new knights play off the emotions of the guardians adding a balance to the show. Also had one of the more interesting fight scenes in W.I.T.C.H. so far. Was rather disappointed and shocked that Matt got changed at first, until I saw the second half of the show then understood why the change happened show rather then what happened from in the comic. All and all another good installment Can't wait to see M is for Mercy in about a week.moreless
  • L is for "Loved it!"

    L is for Loved it! The Huggles/Matt plot was good. I liked how he was still loyal to Matt. I think that Khor shouldn't have attacked the girls as he has been with them before. Irma can be really mean. Though I liked how she first tried to apoligise by the fire hyrant and then on air. I liked the fight scenes too, though won't anyone see them doing that? Exposure much. I also liked how Irma washed out Ember.

    The thing I didn't like was Hay Lin. Ever since J she's been so weak and despo.

    The final scene was a tearjerker, yeah, I'm a sucker for sappy moments. I think Irma will finally end up with Martin.

    Overall, this was a great episode. The drama and action has truly made it the best this season, till now.moreless
  • witch meets a new enemy and matt goes missing

    what a great episode! irma becomes a radio DJ and its cool but she was mean, not that much though cuz it was all true, but i like that guy and im glad they got it all worked out in the end. hay lin liking that boy is still cute, and her hair was really cute in this one, high pig tails are the way to go. this was sos sad matt got captured by narrisa, i was kinda mad that he just stood there when she poped up, and i cant beleive that no one has noticed his dissapearance, he is now an evil guy and it is so sad cuz he's baiting will with what happened to him and she doesnt know!! so shes fighting matt!! its all so sadmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Irma uses the top of a fire-alarm to get at Martin's bedroom window. But when she was ringing at the door, the fire-alarm wasn't standing before Martin's home yet!

    • Nitpick: When Andrew Hornby calls Irma a "vicious attack chick," he says she is at "ten o' clock" when in fact, according to the (aero)nautical direction term, Irma is at two o' clock (meaning forward right or at sixty degrees).

    • Goof: As the girls are walking down the street they are, from right to left, facing front: Irma, Hay Lin, Will, Cornelia and Taranee. Yet just as they're walking into the construction site, facing back, Irma and Taranee have switched sides at oppposite ends of the line. Then in the scene after that, Irma is back at her original spot of the line.

  • QUOTES (6)

  • NOTES (8)

    • The kids working for K-Ship group are the same as those working for the school newspaper in Stop the Presses (minus Taranee). The group being Irma, Bess and Kourtney Grumper, Uriah and Martin.

    • Irma: Goooood morning, Sheffield!

      This is based on the famous "Good morning, Vietnam!" said by Adrian Cronauer, a disc jockey on Armed Forces Radio Saigon. In 1987 the movie Good Morning Vietnam was released with Robin Williams starring as Cronauer.

    • Shagon's golden mask is similar to that worn by the character Anarky from DC Comics.
