  • The "Chronicles of Moises" trilogy comes to a close with laughter and tears.

    In one of the best episodes of the series (later to outdone by Wizards vs. Werewolves") "Night at the Lazerama" wraps things up nicely.....and leaves a few doors open as well. Alex attempts to wreck Max's studying by separating him from his conscience. However, this causes Max to become a constant troublemaker, and conscience grows his own conscience (which was pretty darn funny.) Meanwhile, Justin and his girlfriend Juliet are trapped in a museum exhibit with an evil mummy. Juliet points out that they can't wait until morning to get out, because the sun will shine through the sky light in the ceiling on her, causing Juliet to turn to ash. One of the most surprising aspects of this episode was that there was a big possibility that Juliet was going to die. She didn't, (obviously) but that option still hung in the air as Justin desperately tries to find a way out. Since the mummy has the ability to turn people into his minions, Justin turns Juliet over to the mummy to become his servant, so that his vampire girlfriend would live. The saddest part of the episode wasn't so much the fact that Juliet LEFT, but was that Justin cared enough about her to let her go; to save her life. Of course, the depth of this episodes emotional parts would have been nothing if it weren't for David's and Bridget's amazing performances. Selena was good as always, and the scene with Alex and Justin at the end were especially touching. There are many kid shows that would terrified to cross into such territory that this episode crossed. But WOWP is not your average show. It's unique, funny, and in this case, tugs on your heart strings. That's why thousands of fans gather in front of their TV every week to watch the adventures of the Russos on "Wizards of Waverly Place." Perfect 10!
