While everyone is celebrating Phobos's defeat, Trill the kitchen worker gives Queen Elyon a jewel which belonged to her mother, Queen Weira. Caleb reveals his intentions to stay in Meridian and serve Queen Elyon to Cornelia.
As Taranee starts thinking she will turn into an "invisible girl" again, the Guardians are faced with an old enemy, Frost, the Hunter, who followed them to Earth. Frost kidnaps Irma, Cornelia and Hay Lin and gives Taranee a ransom: Take Will to the cave, but without the Heart of Kandrakar or she'll never see her friends.
After taking Will to the cave, Frost captures Will and Taranee and Taranee gives Will the Heart back. Then, as expected, the girls transform and free themselves. In the middle of the battle, a portal suddenly appears and Frost escapes. Taranee admits her issues to all her friends and Cornelia says they still continue to be the Guardians.
In the B-story, a new foe called Nerissa appears as she frees Miranda, Gargoyle, the Tracker, Sandpit and Raythor and meets Frost. Now the enemies who Nerissa released are called Knights of Vengeance.
- Every second-season episode has a clear focus on one of the five main characters. This episode is one of 4 in the season to focus on Taranee Cook.
- The Knights of Vengeance are formed in this episode.
- This episode marks the first appearance of Nerissa as herself. When she appeared before in season 1, she was in disguise as The Mage and Trill, but this was unknown at the time.
- The power of quintessence is introduced in this episode, although the Guardians don't know what it is called until K is for Knowledge.
- Beginning with this episode, Will clearly says "The Heart" when she transforms.
- Phobos's hatred of Miranda due to her not freeing him begins in this episode, and is not fully resolved until W is for Witch.
- Vathek's physical strength is sufficient to shatter chains, but not to free himself from Miranda's web.
- When Caleb is talking to Cornelia, his hair appears to be blue. This lighting change is specific to the updated animation in season 2, and its effect on hair can also be seen in C is for Changes.
