Main article: /Transcript

An astonished Caleb discovers that fellow rebels have been turned into zombified Trance Marchers by the sound of a magical object called the Horn of Hypnos. Thanks to the Horn, Phobos and Cedric now use the rebels as workforce. But when Blunk steals the Horn and brings it back to Earth, the trance starts to spread to Heatherfield.

The Guardians are called in to help save the Horn's victims and on School Dance night, too. Only a specific melody can break the spell, but how long will Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin be able to resist the entrancing sound of the Horn of Hypnos? And what's even more alarming: poor Hay Lin gets turned into a Trance Marcher.

The only way they can get her to stop slamming them into a wall, is to pull the plug on her power. In the B-story, Will is so happy when she finds out she will go to School Dance night with Matt.

Release notes

  • This episode was originally scripted as the 16th of season 1, but was pushed back to the 18th slot for broadcasting purposes in the US. However, it remains episode 16 on all of the European DVD releases, as well as the Brazilian one.
    • The US order introduces a minor continuity error. In this episode, Will suggests to Hay Lin to use her enhanced hearing (from being the Air Guardian) to find the marching band, even giving the scientific explanation that "sound is carried by air". But in Ghosts of Elyon, Hay Lin has the idea of using this ability unprompted, shushing all the other girls to listen more closely - including Will.
