Plot

Main article: /Transcript

Elyon is Phobos' long-lost younger sister and the true heir to the throne of Meridian, she just does not know it yet. Vathek overhears Prince Phobos and Cedric's plans for luring her to their side willingly, and hurries to tell Caleb, only to end up running for his life when Cedric comes to stop him. Vathek and Blunk escape to Earth with Cedric and a worm-looking monster, called a Larvek hot on their heels.

Vathek relates the news to Caleb who relates the news to the Guardians and they go after Elyon to keep her safe from Cedric's clutches, however, they have to hold off the Larvek from eating Vathek and Elyon slips off in a bad mood after her new beau gives her the heave-ho. She heads back to her place of comfort: Cedric's bookshop. In the B-story, Elyon starts dating with Brian, but, thanks to Guardians' keeping a watchful eye on Elyon, Brian breaks up with her. Hurt, she runs off...to seek comfort from Cedric.

Trivia

  • This episode marks the first appearance of Larveks.
  • This episode marks the only time Cornelia uses "Earth, arise!" in naming her earthly attack (when she is fighting the Larvek) instead of simply "Earth!" However, as the "earth" she tries to use is really plastic it does not work. A similar instance of a unique Guardian phrase failing to work occurred in the previous episode.
  • In The Key, the girls first meet and befriend Vathek, but in this episode they first think he is one of the bad guys (until reminded by Blunk) and nearly transform to fight him, and then Will has trouble remembering his name, calling him "Vortok" instead.
  • The rebellion and the W.I.T.C.H. girls find out that Elyon is Phobos' younger sister.

Behind the scenes

Quotes

Phobos:

The face of my sister. After all these years.

Cedric:

I've successfully won her confidence. Her Earth name is Elyon Brown.

Phobos:

Elyon, yes. She'll make an excellent princess... Well, for a while.               

Caleb:

The sister of Phobos has been identified. Her name is Elyon Brown.

Cornelia:

That's not possible.                

Caleb:

Phobos' sister, the heir to the Meridian throne, was brought to Earth over 12 years ago.

Cornelia:

Elyon was born right here, in Heatherfield Memorial!

Will:

How does she know that? 

Cornelia:

I am not fighting her. I don't care who she is! 

Will:

We have a job to do... 

Cornelia:

What? Betraying our friends? And if she is this "evil princess", why haven't the bad guys just taken her? 

Yan Lin:

They must earn her trust. The true heir has great powers, even if she is not aware of it. Phobos knows he must step carefully. We must not underestimate his cunning. 

Cornelia:

But that means we have time, right? We don't have to do anything right away! 

Yan Lin:

No, he will send beasts in human form to charm her. She will be drawn to them for reasons she does not understand.   

Cornelia:

Look, Will, why not just touch him with the crystal and get it over with?

Will:

Because I can't reveal a beast in his true form in front of a thousand people!

Irma:

If he's a beast, he's a pretty puny one. 

Caleb:

Well, when they morph, they're not always the same size.             

Cornelia:

She's done nothing wrong, but we're following her like she's some kind of criminal!

Will:

You heard what Mrs. Lin said. They're going to come for her!

Cornelia:

I don't even know if I believe any of this about Elyon. 

Will:

You're also the one who didn't believe we could fly.             

Cornelia:

You guys, if Elyon's in danger, how can we know that and not tell her?

Irma:

I'm with Cornelia.

Taranee:

If we tell her she's the princess of Evil City, she'll think we're crazy. What does that get us? 

Irma:

Oh, I'm with Taranee. 

Will:

We can't tell her. 

Cornelia:

Fine!
