  • Incredible!!! I love this 1-hour episode

    This review is for both Part 1 and Part 2 of the 1-hour "Wizards of Waverly Place" episode. This is one of my favorite "Wizards of Waverly Place" episode. It's very funny and it some good drama scenes into it. This is an episode that just love to watch over and over again. Alex finding out that the wolf on television was Mason is very good to see. Alex, Justin, Max finding Mason at some country wizards' home was good. It was funny when Alex, Justin, and Max aren't very good at playing the country instruments. Alex, Justin, and Max tricking the country wizards was also good and I'm glad that Alex and Mason reunited again. Jerry using the teddy bear cam so he can see if the kids are causing trouble was very funny. I was also laughing when Jerry looked through the teddy bear cam and they see Zeke reveal his feelings for Harper. Zeke fainting for everytime Harper kisses him was very humorous and pretty original. Mason is still his werewolf self and while he is excited about going to Zeke's party, Alex doesn't want to go because she is embarrassed that Mason is a werewolf. Max thinking that Zeke didn't invite was pretty funny. I also loved that they played Selena Gomez' new song "A Year Without Rain" (because I love that song) towards the end of the episode when Alex and Mason were dancing and you can see flashbacks from when they were together (that's probably one of the best parts of this episode). Mason going back to his human self at the very end of the episode was also nice. Overall, this was just an incredible 1-hour "Wizards of Waverly Place" episode... I just really love this episode. 10/10moreless

    This has been a long season for Wizards of Waverly Place, but this penultimate episode definitely was chock full of laughs. The first half was really not that funny and kind of boring, but the second half was just well done. Alex was funny and even Max had me laughing when he "crashed" the party, only to immediately leave afterwards. It featured a sweet moment with Alex showing that she is not shallow, but definitely was heavy on the jokes too, not all sappy like How I Met Your Mother or something. Definitely one of this show's best episodes ever.moreless
  • great

    alex discovers where mason is, but she discovers that country wizards have placed a spell on him. will alex, jason and max be able to save him?

    good episode, it was nice to see mason again, and it is good that Mason is back, i hope it is good. I wonder if Juliet will also return? And I also like that everyone has forgiven Mason for what previously been done. Overall it was good, but it could have been a little better I guess. My overall grade for this episode would be in the "B" range. Good but not greatmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • In the second half of this episode, after Harper storms out of the sub station kitchen, the freezer/lair door in the background is open. But when Zeke grabs the "teddy bear cam" and Zeke starts talking to it, the freezer door is closed.

    • When Mason leaves the party and tosses the map with the eye holes on the floor, it lands with the holes facing the lower left corner of the screen. When Harper enters the room, the map has moved, so the holes now face the upper left corner of the screen.

    • After Max "crashes" the party, he goes to leave and the elevator doors open (and chime) automatically just as he approaches them, instead of him having to push a button and wait for the elevator car to arrive.

    • When Zeke regains consciousness after getting kissed by Harper, she, Alex, and Justin are standing over him. In the shots of their feet, Justin is on Harper's right and Alex is on her left. In the shots of Zeke's point-of-view looking up, Justin is now on Harper's left and Alex on her right and they're all kinda standing in a circle. In the shot of everyone together, the three are standing next to each other with Justin back on Harper's right and Alex on her left again.

    • Shortly after the parents come back and Alex learns that Mason may stay as a hybrid man/wolf, is a scene of Justin and Zeke on the street area outside the sub station. In the background of the first shot of that scene is the Murrieta Clown Supplies store. Peter Murrieta is an executive producer and writer on the series.

    • Spells featured: Knock knock, who's there, disappear, disappear who, disappear's to be a door eaten by termites!

    • This is the first time we hear Mason without his British accent, as he perfectly imitates a Southern American accent.

    • Zeke sees several signs of Alex, Justin, and Max's wizardry in this episode.

    • Harper kisses Zeke for the first time in this episode.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Harper: (to Max) So, how'd it go?
      Max: Pretty good. I ate squirrel, made some new enemies... It was a regular day.

    • Alex: (about Mason) Yes. It was him. But he's being held by some country wizards who grow corn by their beds and have a son with one shoe!
      Harper: Oh, good, I thought you were going to say something crazy.

    • Alex: That's him! That's Mason! He loved to paint.
      Justin: I don't think so Alex. Every time you see a dog in a human interest story, you think it's Mason. Remember the skateboarding bulldog?

    • Justin: Alright, guys, it looks like we're going back to that old trailer in the middle of nowhere to find some magical instruments that'll turn your boyfriend human again. (pauses) You're right, our lives are messed up.

    • Alex: Mason, I'm sorry. What we have is so much stronger than all that super-ficial stuff. The important thing is that we're together. I love you no matter what.
      Mason: I don't know if I can believe you.
      Alex: Well, then I'll prove it.
      Mason: How?
      Alex: The same way people have been doing it for centuries now. By slow-dancing to a romantic pop song.

    • Mason: That's my Alex. Lovely, yet scary.

    • Justin: (to Mason, who is in wolf form and is howling) What is it, boy? What are you trying to tell us? Is there trouble at the old mill?

    • Zeke: I can handle anything now. I kissed a person!

  • NOTES (4)


    • The app selection on Justin's wand is similar those on Mac computers and phones.

    • Justin: Max, I am your brother!

      Justin and Max's brief lightsaber fight is a reference those in the Star Wars movies. Justin's quote is a reference to Darth Vader's famous line "Luke, I am your father!" in The Empire Strikes Back.
