  • 1,000 men. Over a hundred children. Their food, belongings and warm clothes were left behind when the city was taken. If they light a fire they have to move camp in case smoke gives away their position. And Phobos's men search for them day and night.moreless

    PROS



    - I really liked the final battle scenes, there was great action



    - The idea of the rebels using the Abyss of Shadows to get inside the castle and using a bridge between worlds to transport the rebels was awesome and I was impressed



    - When I saw Elyon ask Miranda for help and she laughed at her and transformed into her spider form, I almost cried



    - I really enjoyed the scene where Elyon finally finds out the truth about Phobos



    - Great reappearances for Matt, Miranda, Aldarn, Vathek, Tynar, Drake, Huggles, Trill, Mage, Alborn, Miriadel, Elias, Aketon, Julian and more



    - It was cool to see Cedric be turned into a little snake and Phobos, Cedric and Miranda be finally captured



    - Matt and Blunk both going to Meridian and proving themselves as worthy was a add-on



    - I really enjoyed the scene where Caleb and Cornelia kiss and that fairy-tale romance tune plays



    - It was neat to see that Mister Huggles gave the idea to the guardians



    - The scene at the end with the villagers dancing in the street in a beautiful Meridian made me really happy



    - Elyon helping the guardians finally defeat Phobos using their powers was very well done



    - I smiled deeply when I saw the guards and Tynar joining the rebels to defeat Phobos



    - When the Mage, who I now know why she did this, said now it all begins I shivered with curiousity



    CONS



    - This episode was rushed, this episode should have been made into two parts with a filler episode like Ghosts of Elyon taken out



    - There was more planning for the battle here than actual battling and we didn't really get to see the rebels fightmoreless
  • I absolutely loved it!

    This is the best W.I.T.C.H. episode ever. and, in answer to thetotalnutjob's question as to why Elyon cried at the end it's because, even if he's evil, Phobos is still her brother and she probably hates having to fight him!

    Love that line: ''Goodbye, Phobos. you were never my brother.'' it made my cry. i feel so bad for poor elyon. well, at least Meridian is a happy place again. that's what she wanted all along, right? plus it made me cry when elyon asked miranda for help and she smiled and elyon smiled back and miranda betrayed her. it was so sad, seeing elyon so vulnerable and upset. i enjoyed it though, the battle scenes were great and elyon kicked ass at the end!moreless
  • The final battle for Maridian. Loved it. In fact...

    This was a wonderful episode. The romance between Cornelia and Caleb came to a climax, and Phobos got his just desserts, FINALLY! I LOVED Elyon's little speech. Wonder why she was crying at the end. But anyway, Hay Lin is so good at playing the little sister trademark "I'm going to watch you two kiss", but she got caught. Had to love her little bow and thumbs-up, though. Meridian looked so beautiful at the end, and midget Cedric looked weird and really creepy, like a cockroach in your shower. The Mage's 'so...now it all begins...' was ultra-scary. Course, she WAS Nerissa, and Nerissa is the queen of creepy, so I shoudln't be surprised.moreless

    grand finala! well, the main events based on 2 comixes, but they complicatized them. instead of Phobos taking Elyon's powers by the Light Crown, he does it with the throne. the throne looked like electric chair in those moments- with spikes. in the episode the guardians didn't success to arrive to Elyon before the coronation, as happened in the comix. there they made an Elyon's astral drop to convince her about Phobos's "good" thoughts. here they arrive too late- the coronation and de-powering already started. here the good citizerns aren't appearing in the coronation- only the bad guys. in the comix they appear- and become angry on Phobos because what he did to "Elyon".moreless
  • This is what we've been waiting for this whole season: the final battle between W.I.T.C.H. and Phobos...

    Phobos no longer has to lie to his little sister, because her powers have finally reached their peek and he can drain them all. Elyon's coronation party is closing in, and Caleb still hasn't figured out how to get his army across the Meridian plains without being seen by the guards. Mr. Huggles, the doormouse Matt gave Will can't stay at Will's house, or Irma's, so Hay Lin's family restaurant is the only place he can stay in, so Hay Lin brought food for him. Will and Irma felt sorry they couldn't keep him, so they took him in their arms, when Blunk said he could keep him, but actually eat him. Will took Mr. Huggles back to the cage, when an idea struck them: the doormouse used a tube to get back into the cage, so Hay Lin wondered how it's a pity the rebel army doesn't have anything like that to sneak into the castle without being seen, that maybe they could build something like that. So Caleb had an idea to open portals into the Meridian castle, bringing the army safely in...moreless

    • Yan Lin: What about the boy, Matt, who saw you in your Guardian form?
      Will: I talked to Matt. He was a little shocked... Okay, terror-stricken after seeing the Metaworld, but he knows Elyon from school. He wants to help.

    • Elyon (after she has discovered that Phobos tricked her): Cornelia! Oh, Cornelia, I'm so sorry!
