X is for Xanadu is the twenty-fourth episode of season 2, and the fiftieth episode overall of the TV series.


Phobos returns to Meridian and begins conquering it with battle after battle ending in his victory with his new powers, resulting in him renaming the Seal of Nerissa the "Scepter of Phobos".

While the Guardians are trying to stop him, Phobos turns Meridian into an evil kingdom again. Meanwhile, trapped inside the Seal Nerissa critiques Phobos's plans causing the old Guardians and Elyon (who has reabsorbed some of her power) to turn against her. The two Air Guardians stop the conflict and urge the women to unite in harmony as it is the only way they can escape and assist those who side against the corrupt prince.

In the B-story, Hay Lin has to complete an art project on Xanadu, her vision of paradise, but has come down with a case of "painter's block". To make things even more complicated, Hay Lin finds out that one of the judges is Leelee Quinones, her favorite artist!


  • At one point of the battle between Phobos and the Guardians, Will's skirt is pink instead of teal.


  • Every second-season episode has a clear focus on one of the five main characters. This episode is one of 4 in the season to focus on Hay Lin.
  • Kadma is the only member of C.H.Y.K.N. to not have any speaking lines.
  • Phobos is probably referencing the film Apocalypse Now when he says "I love the smell of despair in the morning". This is the second such occurrence in the series, as Tridart said a similar (but not identical) line in N is for Narcissist.
