Caleb's Challenge is the twenty-second episode of season 1 of the TV series.


Main article: /Transcript

Caleb, Aldarn and a few other rebels go to Meridian's mill for grain, but they get caught. Only Caleb escapes and goes to seek help from the Guardians. But when Aldarn accidentally becomes hypnotized by Elyon (and she doesn't know it) into signing a peace treaty, Caleb has to fight him for the position of leader.

W.I.T.C.H. must leave their baking duties to Blunk (big mistake!) and go to figure out what the deal is with this peace treaty at the Hugong nesting grounds. They trigger a trap and almost get eaten by the Larvek hatchlings.

After W.I.T.C.H. defeat them, they go to the arena to warn everybody. Caleb defeats Aldarn, not only securing his place as the rebel leader, but also saving his friend.

They decide not to go to the signing of the peace treaty and instead go to the mill for the grain, believing it is a good time to infiltrate while Phobos is distracted. Meanwhile, at a duplicate of the signing ceremony arranged by Phobos, Elyon's grudge against the rebels seems to return after she sees that they haven't come.

In the B-story, W.I.T.C.H. must cook pies and cookies for the school bake sale.


  • This is the first appearance of Taranee's house.
  • Even though Caleb and all of the Guardians have seen people hypnotized before, none of them recognized it in Aldarn when they met with him. However, Elyon's hypnosis is noticeably more subtle than the Horn of Hypnos'.
  • The Hugong is the Meridian bird of peace, similar to the dove on Earth.
  • Hay Lin's comment of "Why don't you bite the dust instead?" may be a reference to the song "Another One Bites the Dust".
  • Some of Blunk's food includes:
    • Tuna Cookies
    • Chocolate Chip Pizza Surprise
    • Macaroni and Bees
    • Soup Fudge
    • Trout Cake
    • Sweat Sock Surprise
    • Brownie Dogs
    • Denim Pie
    • Hair Sandwiches
    • Peanut Butter Sausage
    • Cheese and Oyster Smoothies
