Winx Club, season 5: Beyond Believix, episode 2 is titled: “The Spill” (original air date 9/2/2012). The Trix have a new ally, a merman called Tritannus. Production company Rainbow confirmed that Roxy will be the 7th fairy of the Winx. Iginio Straffi of Rainbow revealed that the fairies will be striving to achieve two new powers this season: Harmonix and Sirenix. The ancient Sirenix power allows the Winx to transform into mermaids.
The Winx are at the Frutti Music Bar, treating the humans of Gardenia to a preview of their upcoming concert. Roxy reveals that she’s been accepted to Alfea College. Bloom has a memory of her sister Daphne, which is interrupted by an explosion over the ocean. The explosion comes from an oil rig. The workers on the rig get the problem under control.
The Specialists show up to see the fairies. Sky has a special gift for Bloom. It’s the Pendant of Eraklyon. While the guys and the Winx have fun at the juice bar, Sky tries to present Bloom with the pendant but gets interrupted repeatedly.
Aisha tells the girls that her cousin Tessa is attending a coronation in the undersea kingdom of Andros. She calls Tessa, who lets the fairies watch on the phone. Aisha’s uncle, King Neptune, is going to name one of his twin sons, Nereus and Tritannus, as the future king. Aisha says that Tritannus is crazy.
When King Neptune names Nereus as crown prince, he is attacked by a masked assassin. A battle ensues and Neptune defeats the attacker, who turns out to be Tritannus. Neptune sends him to prison.
Back at the juice bar, there is another explosion on the oil rig, resulting in a fire and a dangerous oil spill. The Winx go to save the rig workers and stop the oil spill. The fairies battle the fire and the Specialists take the men to safety.
Flora struggles to stop the oil leak, but she is unable to stop it under water. Aisha dives in, but she finds that her powers don’t work well under water. She manages to stop the leak, but some oil has already spilled into the ocean. During the chaos Sky loses the pendant. The Winx decide to turn their concert into a benefit to help clean up the ocean and the beach.
In the final scene, Tritannus is taken to the prison where he meets the Trix, who are imprisoned there.
In the preview for the next episode, “The Rise of Tritannus,” Tritannus is exposed to the leaked oil and mutates into a monster. He teams up with the Trix to take over the oceans. Please click here for last week’s Winx Club episode recap.
