Hello I'm the Winx Critic, I remember it so あなた don't have to! Well after our もっと見る than a 月 wait (What was the point of that Nick, really. Lemme tell あなた what happened while we waited: "The Desolation of Smaug" came out, Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary Special came out, Catching 火災, 火 came out, Thor 2 came out, Lady GaGa released her newest album "Artpop" and I just--why) we finally get to see this new abomination known as Bloomix. Now, I have to admit, some of the transformations look semi-decent. But that name, and where it comes from...curse its origin to the fiery bowels of hell! *clears throat* But, without further ado, let's dive into this...crap-fest known as "Bloomix Power"...oh boy.
The episode starts off with the focus being back to Limphea where the Treeants are still trying to take down the very few remaining 妖精 that still stand (And specialists...I guess). After a few of the kids start wailing and complaining, the Trix 表示する up; saying that as long as these 妖精 cry like little bitches, the Winx will 表示する up.
We're then taken to Alfea where the Winx seem to be giving zero fucks about what's going down at Flora's ホーム planet. Like, really guys. Trees are grabbing 妖精 and a group of powerful witches has the place under control, and all あなた have the time to do is construct a gym? Well now I can see where your
priorities lie (Oh never mind, they obviously built that flying thing without any magic what-so-ever, to train--in heels--to save the girls from the evil villains...makes sense) So they start jumping around (Layla's old hairstyle is back ;w; *sobs into the sun*) but eventually this all comes to a halt when Faragonda and the Specialists walk in; Faragonda explaining, once again
that Bloom is the best thing ever and literally gets a fucking transformation named after her. Hooray. She tells them to get to work on their training, saying that Daphne is in the としょうかん, ライブラリ (Or her classroom, I don't give a fuck) researching the Treeads (But like, what is there to research? あなた have Flora and she's from the freaking planet! She probably knows the story によって heart, and everyone at the "collage" seemed to know what they are, so why do もっと見る research when we already know what they are? Obviously Lord of the Rings ripoffs)
With Daphne, we see her doing her obviously pointless research, Thorin (PFFFFFT) walking in and handing her the story book where the tale of these things come from. He explains to her that his dad used to read him the story, saying to Daphne, "If anyone can find out about the Treeants, it's you." Riiiight. Smaug already pissed me off with some unforeseen shitty romance, so please don't make me relive that horrible, raging feeling again. 'Kay thanks. Daphne eventually figures out that if they somehow plant the roots of the trees back into the soil, they could もっと見る easily control them. Yeah, because that wasn't common knowledge. Your plant keeps falling over? What do we do; burn it, ラップ ivy around it, beat with sound waves? Uh no, あなた fucking plant it
Back with the Specialists (And the Winx), we see the guys getting ready to go through this obstacle course. Sky is the first to go, leaving with a questioning remark, "This obstacle course will train our reflexes and our agility." Right, because あなた haven't like, trained in hundreds of other courses like this when あなた were at Redfountain. It's this specific course that's going to help あなた improve. *Grabs logic and throws it out window* AND STAY OUT!
We get back to the Winx, a few of the girls 表示中 off the moves that they had learned; spinning and flipping all about (Seriously, do they like, not abide to the laws of physics, gravity または like, body weight distribution? When あなた land, あなた land on your feet. Which means, all the weight of your body will be on your knees, ankles and the soles of your feet; each part trying its best to take in as much of the exerted energy it can, so as to not allow あなた to injure yourself. I sincerely
doubt that I could do some of the shit their doing in my nude, 4 inch (Roughly 10 cm) heels. And I would say that the strongest part of my body are
my legs. I've climbed mountains, man. And not just "omg that 丘, ヒル is so steep it must be a mountain" kind of thing, I've climbed the Alps. Yeah, the Winx pretty much say "fuck physics" in this one). After some dude named Nex shows he can do this course, Roy attempts it, Nex kicking the hoop away before Roy could finish; Layla leaving in an angry fit. But, screw that, the plot comes bursting in as Daphne tells the girls how to control the Treeants.
Outside of Alfea, we see all the girls are ready to go (omg blurm is wearing da same outfit frum in da trailurr) Bloom explaining that she and the Specialists will distract the Trix while the others (Including Daphne and Thorin...idk why Thorin wasn't included in the "specialist" category but who cares) go and try to save Miele and her classmates. Musa asks how they're going to do that exactly, a valid 質問 considering only the Mary-Sue herself still has her powers. That's when Flora rushes in, handing everyone a vial of her potions. Once everyone is set and ready to go, Bloom transforms into her Sirenix (Did あなた really have to 表示する the entire transformation guys), everyone (Except for Daphne, never mind, thought she was going) heading off for Limphea.
Back on Limphea, the Trix explain to the freshman that while they head back to Cloudtower to prepare the ambush, they should stick around to keep an eye on the prisoners. Cuz, ya know, that couldn't backfire in anyway. Miele takes this opportunity to perform a spell on the Treeant, causing magic roots (omg wat roots growing on a 木, ツリー when will this madness stop) to grow on it; the thing becoming confused, thus letting Miele go. The freshman notice her, and even though there are *counts* seven of them, they don't go after her または even attempt to surround her. She starts flying around a bit, the Treeants swatting at her here and there, before they finally decide to do something; that something not being very successful because all they end up knocking down is a monster. Smooth freshman. In the end, Miele ends up getting bitch-slapped によって a Treeant, almost getting squished によって it before Flora steps in and uses her potion; their roots becoming embedded in the ground.
When もっと見る start appearing, the Winx go through their supplies of potions, all of the Treeants eventually being rooted into the ground. They let go of the fairies, they heading for the freshman witches and essentially kicking their ass' (And what's with all this brutality towards them? I know あなた were just held によって monster trees, but they didn't do anything--it was all the Trix! The freshman were just following the ones with the power, which is what most newbies do to fit in anyways. I mean, they go full out, with even the Specialists attacking them with their specialized weapons. Come on guys, they can't be any younger than those Limphea 妖精 and are just trying not to get their ass' handed to them for disobeying the Trix. If anything, あなた should be cutting them some slack! But no, this is deemed for younger children and of course we must try and beat into their heads the cliched "good vs evil" principal).
We finally focus on Bloom and the other Specialists, whom are making their way to Cloudtower to face the Trix. Before they arrive though, lightning starts hitting the group, Sky realizing that the Trix had been expecting them. "No shit Sherlock." (It's what Icy really
meant to say guys, no joke) Icy in-turn sends Darcy and Stormy out to keep an eye on the group while she turns to Selina, asking her to release another one of her movie/book rip-offs. And what does she choose? None other than an awesome drag--a flying basilisk? Wh--wha--eUUGUGUGHH
. *takes a deep breath* Do あなた morons understand what a basilisk is? Frankly, あなた should either sit down and read some Greek 本 または read the freaking "Chamber of Secrets" because any normal person would understand that a basilisk is a snake, not a DRAGON
. Btw that thing totally looks like Smaug from "The Hobbit". Like, really guys.
On the left, Smaug; on the right the flying "basilisk". See any similarities?
So the "basilisks" fly off (God that pisses me off so much) and head towards Bloom and the Specialists; one of them knocking Brandon off of his bike. Bloom stops the bike from moving (Yeah that's important) while Sky dives down, grabbing Brandon and hauling him back to safety. Meanwhile, a "basilisk" hovers in front of Bloom, literally opening
its eyes wider in front of her and nothing happens. あなた guys do
understand what happens when あなた look that thing in the eyes, right? あなた become petrified. Get it? あなた can no longer move. Why didn't this happen to Bloom? Oh wait, never mind--it's Bloom. So Sky tries taking one down with a スラッシュ from his sword, but this does nothing but piss them off; the "basilisk" heading off towards Limphea college. The Specialist head down there to help the other Winx, Bloom soon flying フォワード, 前進, 楽しみにして to deal with the Trix; quickly being greeted によって the three witches flying up to her.
Back with the rest of the Winx, the girls try their best to not look--you're looking right at it, aren't you. Okay well, so you've fucked up what a basilisk is already so of course just looking at it doesn't cut it. あなた have to be touched によって fucking yellow beams of "petrifying rays" to become--a stone statue? No dammit, Medusa is the only creature/thing known to turn a creature to stone. A basilisk just petrifies--aka, makes the person または thing no longer movable. They still retain their body, and looks, but then cannot 移動する and will not 移動する until a cure has been administered (Seriously, did あなた dip shits do any research?). Before Musa and Tecna can become "petrified", Riven flies in (Shouting the name of his 移動する now...okay) and stops the thing from hitting her.
We're then taken back to Bloom's situation, where the Trix start firing a few of their moves at her, they not really doing anything as Bloom blocks them with a shield.
Back with the rest of the Winx, they're trying they're best to make due without any powers. At one point, Stella is stuck under a "basilisk", she finally accomplishing a double back-flip, which conveniently knocks out the monster. We see Flora hide the rest of the Limphea students in a tree, trying to make sure that they are all alright. A roaming "basilisk" suddenly appears, screaming and eventually knocking Flora out of the tree; Miele stepping in and blasting the thing aside (Seriously, these have got to be the weakest
monsters ever). But the small victory isn't long lasted when Miele is grabbed suddenly によって a roaming Treeant. Flora tries grabbing her but can't (treeant: "lul here ya go...just kidding. here ya go...just kidding."), she resorting to using a rope to スイング from its branches, the Treeant throwing Miele loose and her sister saving her just before she hits the ground (This is some Indiana Jones shit).
Flora lands safely with her sister and...just claps, she seemingly knowing that she had already achieved her Bloomix (Even though she wasn't glowing または anything). Thus we see the first transformation of this new power...and god those lyrics are obnoxious. "Da dragon 火災, 火 is da best yeaah." That's basically it. Summary, bam. After her transformation, Flora uses her powers to calm the Treeants down, they putting their roots back into the ground and returning back to normal.
Everyone thinks that everything is okay, but then another "basilisk" appears, it threatening to turn Layla into stone before Roy and Nex step in, the both of them becoming "petrified". She lets out a wailing and cliched "No" before the episode ends.
All in all, this episode was...eh. It was kind of boring and the whole Bloomix thing is still rubbing me the wrong way. I really think they just keep putting off the 次 decent plot. Like, really, do we really need to see もっと見る of Limphea? No. And these pandemonium things...? *Kamelot's "The Great Pandemonium" starts playing in my head* Please don't play out the others getting their "Bloomix"...just hurry up and do it.
