It's parents' night at the school, and nobody (except Hay Lin) seems very excited, especially Elyon. She feels that Cedric is the only one who understands her, not her friends, and especially not her family. When Elyon does her family tree research, her parents do not have any pictures of her other relatives. Elyon thinks that it's because they do not care about her but it's for a whole other reason.
Cedric reveals to Elyon, that her parents are beasts, and that she is the Princess of Meridian. Elyon is so confused but she goes to Meridian, her original home.
In the B-story, Elyon is lied to by Cedric, her parents and Phobos for everything. Elyon also discovers the Guardians to be her friends and displays her powers for the first time when she lashes out in retaliation and anger.
- Many of the girls' and Elyon's parents make their first appearances.
- Elyon's powers are used for the first time.
- When the W.I.T.C.H. girls are brooding about Elyon's departure, Hay Lin is seen wearing no socks but when the view is from outside the window, she is wearing pink socks.
- Beginning with this episode, a new version of "We are W.I.T.C.H." is used for the opening sequence, replacing the demo version.
- When the girls arrive in Meridian in this episode, they find themselves as midgets trapped inside a terrarium. This is similar to comic issue #4, The Fire of Friendship, where they end up as midgets inside an aquarium.
- In the comics, Elyon's birthday is on October 31 and not March 13.
- This episode shows the longest W.I.T.C.H. transformation up to date.
