Alfea isn’t the same as Rosalind has taken over the Headmistress’s position, and people aren’t happy with what she is doing lately, which mainly includes, expelling students. Since her arrival, there has been news about a lot of missing people. The threat that lingers over the Alfeans has been revealed up to an extent in the first episode itself.
Season 2 follows the tale of deceit and greed taking upon the world. Bloom possesses the Dragon Fire, which is instrumental in the plans of the villain. So she is again hunted down while she is lost in the thoughts of her parental succession.
The series left the viewers in a cloud cuckoo land and this isn’t what can be expected from such a series. The character development and plot could have been much better as the series truly had the potential. Beating around the bush will not turn out well for the show, and it left me with mixed feelings.
Beatrix had the best role, and she wasn’t even the lead character. The seven-episode long series does a really poor job in giving equal screen time to every character and tried to jiggle between a lot of the things. It can’t be denied that the creators had a lot in their minds, but they weren’t able to convert it into a time-worthy show. Time wasn’t also any issue for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2, as it had 51-52 minute long seven episodes. This time duration was long enough to execute a great series, and in place of the plot, the focus was more on showing love and sacrifices (which also didn’t make any sense).
With such high hopes from the second season of Fate: The Winx Saga, it fairly manages to disappoint its viewers. A threat of impending doom, Bloom being stuck in the middle of the crisis, and another mystery is how this season of the show can be summarized. In my opinion, the fans of the first season will be highly disappointed after watching the performances and plot of the show. Nothing was awe-inspiring, and things were overdone. Initially, the suspense created failed to attract the audience till the end.
Fate: The Winx Saga has copied its first season in terms of twists and turns. First, it was the Dark Ones, and now it is about a weird experiment that threatened the existence of this and the other world. The actors weren’t as brilliant as they were in the first season and gave us rather dull performances. Also, the chemistry between Bloom and Sky looked nice in the initial episodes. Later on, their romantic scenes also seemed unnecessary. If you have watched the first season, you very well know how it had a satisfactory ending, but this one is rather plain. The magic has sadly faded out from the show. As the ending leaves us on a cliffhanger, a new season can be expected, if this one gets a satisfactory viewership.
Final Score – [5/10]
