Fate: The Winx Saga is one of Netflix’s biggest hits of the year so far. The dark and magical teen drama has taken the streamer by storm and not long after the first season was released, a second season was announced. While speculation on what the new season will bring has been kicking off since the minute fans finished season one, some are taking apart the episodes that are out so far looking for clues – but are instead finding one or two plot holes.
In one of the most emotionally charged sequences of the series, when Bloom (played by Abigail Cowen) and Sky (Danny Griffin) head into the woods to hunt a Burned One, the fire fairy texts her suitemates a call for help.
Putting aside all the differences and falling out the girls have been having since moving in together, Stella (Hannah van der Westhuysen), Aisha (Precious Mustapha), Terra (Eliot Salt) and Musa (Elisha Applebaum) come together to help her friend.
However, some fans have pointed out that from the text Bloom sent her friends, saying there was an emergency at the Stone Circle, they would have never been able to find her.
Chasing the Burned One, Bloom and Sky did in fact go way beyond the Stone Circle, into the woods, and even crossed the barrier.
While Bloom is not an ordinary fairy and her senses are tuned into the Burned Ones, and that’s why she is able to find them, the other fairies don’t have the same powers.
When Stella, Aisha, Terra and Musa would have eventually shown up at the Stone Circle, they wouldn’t have found Bloom, who didn’t wait for them and took off with Sky.
They also would have had no way of finding where she went.
The moment when the fairies swoop into battle the Burned One and rescue Bloom is one of massive importance for these characters.
Without it, they wouldn’t have built the same trust between them and they wouldn’t have found out some critical notions about the monsters they were fighting.
At the end of season one, viewers saw the fairies return to Alfea College after a trip to California to find Rosalind (Lesley Thorp) had taken over as headmistress.
The girls are yet to find out Farah Dowling (Eve Best) is dead but with Stella’s mother Queen Luna (Kate Fleetwood) showing support to Rosalind, it’s likely they will need all the allies they can find.
One of the biggest mysteries still plaguing fans revolves around Bloom’s real origins and who her parents are.
Rosalind has her convinced that she was found as a baby in Aster Dell after Blood Witches stole her from her family to sacrifice her to gain magic.
