W.I.T.C.H. Wiki

H is for Hunted is the eighth episode of season 2, and the thirty-fourth episode overall of the TV series.


Will created an Astral Drop of herself, but Nerissa turned it into an Altermere, an exact duplicate of Will, including her feelings and memories and, what's even more serious, her powers.

While Will was trying to find it, Nerissa convinced it to take Will's place, and a battle erupted. The other girls tried to help, but they couldn't tell which Will was the real Will, even in Guardian form. The Altermere became good and was destroyed by Nerissa. Will convinced the Altermere to be absorbed into Will.

In the B-story, Will was forced by her mother to do laundry instead of help set up Mrs. Rudolph's good-bye party resulting in some interesting exchanges when there were two Wills, especially when she discovered her mother had been lying to her!
