In the cool fantasy series, the young fairy Bloom (Abigail Cowen) visits the magical fairy school Alfea in the Otherworld. Bloom befriends her roommates Aisha (Precious Mustapha), Musa (Elisha Applebaum), Terra (Eliot Salt) and Stella (Hannah van der Westhuysen) and gets to know the specialist Sky (Danny Griffin) – and later love too.
However, some logic holes and “plot holes” have crept into Netflix ‘latest hit series that simply don’t make any sense.
1: Blooms fireproof clothing
The main character Bloom from “Fate: The Winx Saga” is a fire fairy who can create flames with her hands at the beginning of the series. As Bloom later gets to know and understands her powers more and more, the flames generated get bigger and bigger until she can even unleash the dragon flame slumbering in her in the season finale.
But why in all these moments, Bloom’s clothes don’t catch fire? Especially in the season finale this is no longer credible and a blatant logic error, since Bloom even grows fiery wings while she is floating in the air. How can Bloom’s beautiful red leather jacket stay unburned?
2: Andreas’ strange disappearance
In the finale of the first season of “Fate: The Winx Saga”, Sky’s father Andreas (Ken Duken) appears surprisingly again, whom Silva (Robert James-Collier) had stabbed to death in the past attack on Bloom’s hometown Aster Dell.
The ultimate Netflix quiz
What was the first Netflix in-house production?
But wouldn’t the faculty members have been looking for Andrea’s body after the attack on Aster Dell? Silva in particular should have known that something was wrong when Andreas’s body could no longer be found – and indeed the former headmistress Rosalind (Lesley Sharp) saved his life and hid him with Queen Luna (Kate Fleetwood) in the Kingdom of Solaria .
The fact that the faculty simply leaves Andreas’ body at the site of the battle seems very illogical – but of course it is of great advantage for the rest of the plot of “Fate: The Winx Saga”, because Sky’s father can surprisingly return in the season finale!
3: Blooms always matching tantrums
A big topic in the first season of “Fate: The Winx Saga” is Bloom’s fire fairy powers, which are unleashed when the young fairy feels strong emotions. Even before her time in Alfea, Bloom lost control of her powers after an argument with her mother and almost burned down her family’s house completely.
But when Beatrix (Sadie Soverall), who is difficult to understand, tells Bloom about the genocide in her home village Aster Dell in the fourth episode of “Fate: The Winx Saga”, and headmistress Farah Dowling (Eve Best), Silva and Terra’s father Professor Harvey (Alex Macqueen ) is to blame, the fire fairy stays calm and does not develop any flames.
When Dowling, Silva and Professor Harvey capture Beatrix on the way back, they even hold the screaming Bloom by force, without the fire fairy developing any flames that should actually evoke her strong emotions.
4: Stella’s easy escape from Solaria
Stella’s mother, Queen Luna, takes her daughter back home because she doesn’t like the way Headmaster Farah Dowling trains her. But light fairy Stella then buys from home, returns to Alfea and uses an illusion to hide in the shared apartment of the 5 fairies.
The fact that Stella was able to escape the well-guarded kingdom of Solaria seems a bit strange and illogical. Because Stella’s mother Queen Luna is a master in illusion magic and the ability to control light. Stella’s mother should have noticed the disappearance of her daughter and she would have been able to track down Stella in Alfea with ease – if everything in the Netflix series had been logical.
5: The magical barrier in the headmistress’ office
Beatrix wants to free the former headmistress Rosalind (Lesley Sharp) from her magical prison in the course of the first season of “Fate: The Winx Saga” and has to overcome a magical barrier at the door to the secret passage. Without further ado, Beatrix throws the headmistress Farah Dowling’s secretary through the barrier, but ultimately fails to free Rosalind.
But why does the headmistress Farah Dowling not improve the magical barrier after this first attempt at liberation or install a completely different security system? Dowling could also simply move Rosalind to another prison.
For the further plot of “Fate: The Winx Saga” it seems to be very useful and appropriate that the magical barrier remains unchanged and Bloom can later overcome it and free Rosalind – but that is not logical!
6: The missing security check
Apparently Headmaster Dowling doesn’t have one in the case of spy Beatrix Background Check carried out. Because Beatrix was trained by Andreas, is sent by Solaria and clearly a supporter of Rosalind.
One would think that Headmistress Dowling, who knows about the numerous dangers and enemies of Alfea, takes a close look at her new students beforehand and does some research on them. In the case of Bloom, she did that too, but Beatrix was able to sneak into Alfea just like that. Not very logical!
7: Beatrix’s unsafe prison
When lightning fairy Beatrix is exposed as a spy, headmistress Dowling locks her in a prison. But apart from the magic handcuffs, there are no security measures such as cameras.
At this point in Fate: The Winx Saga, Dowling should know that there are other double agents in Alfea, such as Riven (Freddie Thorp) and Dane (Theo Graham), who were loyal to Beatrix. Boy specialist Dane even guards Beatrix’s prison.
When Bloom helps Beatrix get rid of the handcuffs, Beatrix can simply use her lightning magic to open the lock on her cell. But why didn’t Headmistress Dowling put more magic spells on the cell so that fairy schoolgirls can’t open them so easily? In the case of Rosalind’s prison, Beatrix did not succeed – and Headmistress Dowling seems very bungled and naive here. Or “Fate: The Winx Saga” is quite illogical at this point!
