Phobos and Cedric started a rumor about the Seal of Phobos, only to trap Caleb with a sand monster called Sandpit (wild sand that sucked in himself all those who approached and him) to find out whether there is a spy in the castle or not.
In the B-story, W.I.T.C.H. had a performance at the school, but after discovering Caleb was in danger, they created Astral Drops. After the real girls left, the Astral Drops ruined the performance. The Guardians rescued Caleb and turned the sand in to glass, making it possible for the villagers to live in peace and for the children to play on the sand-glass.
- This episode bears similarities to issue 9 of the comics, with the girls starring in a play about the Four Dragons.
- In the comics, Xin Jing isn't the daughter of the Jade Emperor as is the case in the show.
- When Irma sat on her step-ladder (during rehearsal for the school play), she had paint smeared on her pants, but in the following scene, her pants were clean.
- When Caleb said "Don't touch the ground or the walls.", Hay Lin's top was pink instead of teal.
