The five girls tried to learn more about their mission as Guardians of the Veil. While finding a friend and losing a loved one, they received a magical map that reveals the twelve portals in Heatherfield to Meridian which the girls have to close.
A month after Halloween, Cornelia did not yet believe in her newly developed Guardian powers but using her powers over earth, she accidentally wound a plant branch around her arm.
W.I.T.C.H. were confused. They wanted to seek answers to everything strange and extraordinary that was happening to them, except Taranee, who was frightened.
Irma, Taranee Cornelia were at Will's place with her. The storm caused a power cut and Taranee got a chance to try her powers. She created balls of fire that didn't hurt anyone, and lit up the room. Will showed the others her power of speaking to appliances, like her fridge, which surprised Irma.
Meanwhile, Hay Lin just got home and found her father talking to a doctor about her grandmother. Yan Lin gave Hay Lin a scroll that shows a map of Heatherfield. A shiny spot showed the school where the first portal opened.
On Kandrakar, the Oracle welcomed the arrival of Yan Lin. He thanked her for role in presenting the new Guardians of the Veil with their destiny.
At the funeral of her grandmother, Hay Lin noticed Elyon, who disappeared into thin air like a ghost. Later, Elyon returned with Cedric.
A few days later, the girls saw Elyon in the school yard but she quickly disappeared. The girls ran to her house hoping to find her. They followed some footsteps down to the basement. Elyon lead them into a secret room which they soon discovered was a trap. Vathek attacked the girls, before disappearing into the second portal with Elyon. After the portal closed, the girls found a book in the room.
They travelled to the marshes of Heatherfield to search for the missing Andrew Hornby that Irma accidentally turned into a toad. The girls found a toad with Andrew's hair and Irma asked if she had to kiss him to change him back.
