  • i feel sorry for Hay Lin, you guys?

    Poor Hay Lin realises that her grandma became Nerissas slave, and gets realy depressed. She has a big conflict : give up fighting or fight her own grandma. Man, big problem. Aspetially that her grandma is like a mom to her.What would anyone do, i think everybody would do the same. Oh, and i think Nerissa is pretty ugly , man, she is like 200 years old, but with the spell she got beautyfull again and made every guy fall in love with her. low kick. She was abusing Hay Lins boyfriend just to make her brake. Wasnt the grandma enough? You agree with me, guys?moreless
  • Poor Hay Lin, she lost her grandma to Nerissa... Oooh, that witch is SO gonna get it!!! ...Soon.

    Nerissa gained the powers of her former friends and Guardians to her side, so now she wants to torture W.I.T.C.H. a little (or more) by enrolling to Sheffield Institute posing as a new girl, Stacey, and every boy in school fell in love with her, leaving all girls sooo jealous (Sondra much?!), but she gave her disguise away to Yan Lin, since she used Quintessence to drop a meal on W.I.T.C.H., so they thought of a plan to steal the Seal from her when they catch her offguard. And they did, at the mall, but their plan got backfired, and Nerissa brought her old companions too, so the battle of the elements began...moreless
  • Well its Guradians vs Guardians from now on! Who the better ones? C.H.K.Y.N. or W.I.T.C.H.

    Well this series keeps getting better and better. Love it that Nerissa has the power ever girl dreams of, Meaning total power over the weak mind of boys! What kinda of girl doesn't want that power? Hay lin must deal with both braces and a personl betyal when she realize that her grandma is under Nerissa power. Though she doesn't realize her real grandma inside the seal! I will give Nerissa props for one more thing. She may be a crazy scocpathc old hag but she defetaly a kick ass taste in fashon! Way better then Corneila that for sure!moreless
  • ding dong the witch is back (but not dead!)

    interesting episode! i wasn't expecting Nerissa to be Stacey! i was here we go again another Sandra! but Nerissa was using her powers mroe than her looks! even though she is evil and all she is still quite pretty! she has a Latin American look and it looks good! i think her hair is way too long though! it just goes all the way down and then has a couple of bits spazzing outwards! and she really is truly evil! it was a great episode though! i liked how they managed to figure out that they couldn't fight element against element cos they would never win! but i don't know if it was just me or not but i felt like Matt was flirting with Hay Lin abit! it was probably just me though! great ep overall!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Goof: After Nerissa uses her powers to dump the tray of food all over the Guardians (and Matt), we can see that Andrew has Matt's hair - color and all - when the shot comes back to Nerissa.

    • Goof: While Nerissa's mojo supposedly enthrals every male around her, a young man is yet seen walking past her, impervious to her charm, during the mall's grand opening (after W.I.T.C.H. agrees to battle C.H.Y.K.N.).

    • Look hard: When Hay Lin takes the screen and Nerissa stands behind her, her wings are completely colourless.

    • Goof: When the girls flee away from C.H.Y.K.N. to Kandrakhar, the exterior is intact while the interior is still in ruins.

    • Goof: It is clearly shown that Cassidy's gloves are teal. However when she is seen from the back, deglamouring or shooting water at Irma, her gloves are pink.

    • Goof: When Cassidy, Halinor, Yan Lin and Kadma deglamour in the mall, their tops remain unchanged. Yet when the camera shifts to W.I.T.C.H. and resume on C.H.Y.K, they are now wearing their Guardian tops.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Nerissa: So much for the element of surprise?
      Will: Lose the disguise, Stacey. We know it's you.
      Nerissa: This is the real me, once, now, and forever! We are the true Guardians!

    • Cornelia: If Caleb ever looked at her like that…
      Will: Ew, hello! Nerissa's his Mom!
      Cornelia: Oh, right…Gag!

    • Stacey: Wanna, oh, I dunno… Carry my books?
      Eric: You--you don't have any books.
      Stacey: Find me some.
      Eric: I'll find you a library!

    • Matt: How come I'm not hot and drooling? Well, I mean, I'm hot, but…

    • Cornelia: Nerissa's going shopping?? Oh, big mistake! She's on my turf now!!

    • Nerissa: Oh, Grandma! My boyfriend's a charcoal briquette!!

    • Nigel: Stacey, from my heart to yours.
      Taranee: He's under a spell. He's under a spell. He's under a spell…
      Martin (about Stacey): She's my sugar plum cutie!
      Andrew: Hey, hey! She's nobody's fruit, little dude!
      Irma: They're under a spell, and they're not my boyfriends. They're under a spell, and they're not my boyfriends!

    • Cornelia: Would someone explain how that man could look at me and think camel?!

    • Mall guard: Nice try, Ophelia!

      Ophelia is a character from Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
