Parent's Night is the fourteenth episode of season 1 of the TV series.

Plot

Main article: /Transcript

It's parents' night at the school, and nobody (except Hay Lin) seems very excited, especially Elyon. She feels that Cedric is the only one who understands her, not her friends, and especially not her family. When Elyon does her family tree research, her parents do not have any pictures of her other relatives. Elyon thinks that it's because they do not care about her but it's for a whole other reason.

Cedric reveals to Elyon, that her parents are beasts, and that she is the Princess of Meridian. Elyon is so confused but she goes to Meridian, her original home.

In the B-story, Elyon is easily taken in by Cedric's lies about her adoptive parents hating her, and her power-mad older brother's true motives. She also discovers the Guardians identities and displays her inherent mystical powers for the first time when she lashes out in retaliation and anger.

Release notes

  • Beginning with this episode, a new version of We Are W.I.T.C.H. is used for the American opening sequence, replacing the demo version.

Comics connections

  • When the girls arrive in Meridian in this episode, they find themselves shrunk and trapped inside a terrarium. This is similar to comic issue 4, where the same thing happens except the Guardians are trapped in an aquarium.
  • In the comics, Elyon's birthday is on October 31 and not March 13.

Goofs

  • When the W.I.T.C.H. girls are brooding about Elyon's departure, Hay Lin is barefoot, but when the view shifts to outside the window she is wearing pink socks.

Trivia

  • This episode marks the first appearances of Harold Hale and Elyon's adoptive parents Alborn and Miriadel.
  • Elyon's powers are consciously used for the first time.
  • The ceremony started in the previous episode by collecting Symbols of Elyon is completed, and as a result Elyon's resistance is lowered. This coupled with the revelations regarding her parents makes it simple for Cedric to lead her to Meridian.
  • Blunk continues with his mission of watching Elyon from the previous episode. This is not the only time in the series that the Guardians assign Blunk to spy on someone, as in Q is for Quarry, Will tasks him with investigating Sarina Sanchez.
  • This episode shows the longest transformation sequence to date, a blend of the girls' traditional transformation mixed with their first transformation (from It Begins). Only Will transforms in the traditional sense, possibly because in the original transformation she wasn't surrounded by light like the other Guardians.
  • When Elyon discovers the lineage of her true family, the first portrait she sees is of a smiling woman whose hair style resembles that of Princess Leia from the Star Wars series.

Behind the scenes

Quotes

Phobos:

Symbols of Elyon's body, mind and spirit.

Cedric:

The Three-Fold Ceremony is complete, my lord. According to the Ancient Ways, her resistance to crossing will now be lowered.

Phobos:

But only for a while. You must now tell my sister who she really is: Princess of Meridian. Then bring her here. 

Cedric:

I've already set a plan in motion. 

Phobos:

After the coronation all her powers will be mine!           

Mrs. Brown:

Maybe it's time she knew.

Mr. Brown:

Yeah, right, that we're not human and she's from another world?

Mrs. Brown:

I had hoped that we'd never have to explain to her that we brought her here to save her life.               

Elyon:

What are you?

Mrs. Brown:

Elyon, we brought you to save your life!

Mr. Brown:

You must understand. You needed protection from your brother! 

Elyon:

I have a brother?             

Cedric:

I would never lie to you. What's more, I cannot lie to Meridian's rightful princess.

Elyon:

What? This morning I was a teenager with no friends. Now I'm a princess?

Cedric:

In Meridian you'll have real friends. Family. A history. You have a brother who misses you very much. It's time you went home.               

Cornelia:

Elyon, no matter what he's told you Cedric is not your friend!

Elyon:

More of a friend than you. Why shouldn't I go to this Meridian? At least they're honest there.

Cornelia:

You don't know what you're saying! 

Elyon:

Oh, that's right, I never know anything. It's Cornelia who always has the special secrets.
