L is for Loser is the twelfth episode of season 2, and the thirty-eighth episode overall of the TV series.


Nerissa kidnaps Matt and Mr. Huggles and uses quintessence to add them to her new Knights of Destruction as Shagon, the Hate and Khor, the Destroyer. She also creates Tridart, the Despair and Ember, the Pain out of ice and lava, respectively.

Meanwhile, Irma is faced with losing the friendship of her classmate, Martin Tubbs.

In the B-story, the radio station KSHIP starts up at Sheffield Institute and the members of the KSHIP team are Irma, Martin, Uriah and Bess and Courtney Grumper.


  • Every second-season episode has a clear focus on one of the five main characters. This episode is one of 5 in the season to focus on Irma Lair.
  • This episode marks the first appearances of all of the Knights of Destruction as well as Andrew Hornby, who was first mentioned in C is for Changes.
  • Starting with this episode, Will says "quintessence" when transforming as she now knows the power's name.
  • When on the radio Irma refers to herself as "Lair on the Air".
  • At the end of the episode, Martin leaves Irma a note in her locker saying "You'll never be a loser.", meaning that he has forgiven her. The two continue to be good friends and she treats him noticeably better, especially whilst setting up the Vance Michael Justin concert in O is for Obedience.
  • KSHIP was made possible by the bankruptcy of Heatherfield radio station KDRIP, which donated its equipment to the school. KDRIP was seen and heard in The Mudslugs, in which Will briefly took over its frequency. Whether this incident contributed to the station's bankruptcy is unknown.
  • All of the members of the KSHIP team were also on the school newspaper team in Stop the Presses.

Behind the scenes


Oh Irma, you gave me a piece of your bacon, I saved it till May. Oh Irma, when you threw that eraser you [inaudible] my heart. Oh Irma...

—Martin [singing], to Irma on-air

Hi... um, well, everybody knows about... yesterday. Martin, I was awful. I said some things I didn't mean, just to hurt you. I don't expect forgiveness, but I truly am sorry. And if you're not in my life, I'll be the real loser.

—Irma, to Martin on-air
