Fans of Netflix’s Fate: The Winx Saga are pinning their hopes on a single word from fairy Fatale Bloom Peters: “…Mom?” The second season of the supernatural drama ended with Abigail Cowen’s character entering the Realm of Darkness and meeting a woman she thinks is her mother. The same woman put Bloom into stasis as an infant a thousand years ago. (We’re trying to make sense of that one, too.)
More Winx Club Connections
Young is currently at a loss for words regarding Bloom’s mother (mostly because there is nothing to tell) but she is free to discuss her cozy abode.

He says that Fate will “borrow from the source material without doing it verbatim” to give “The Real of Darkness” some context. There will be a connection back to the world of the Winx Club. The idea for this show came from that.
Alfea’s New Leader
Who will take over as Alfea’s new headmistress now that Miss Dowling and Rosalind have been eliminated from consideration (R.I.P., queens!)? Is it the principal?
Young predicts that this will become a key plot point in the upcoming third season. That’s a fabulous casting opportunity we didn’t have before. Although Silva is still present, he has specialized knowledge and we could use a fairy at our fairy academy. For us, that’s a big unanswered question.
Aisha and Grey’s Next Chapter
Even if Aisha and Grey don’t get their happily ever after, “their story’s not over.”
“I’m biased because I love Brandon Grace, the actor who plays Grey,” Young admits. He did a fantastic job, and he’s a nice guy to boot. As a person, Aisha is deserving of joy and affection. The mystery lies in defining the nature of this love for her. She let him in deeply, and his dishonesty was plain to see. We’ll keep probing their connection’s limits and seeing where that leads.
For their willingness to swim “in this little river near a lake in Ireland,” Young praises Grace and Precious Mustapha, the actors who play the partners in this complicated relationship. It’s freezing, but they make it look effortless. To put it simply, I feel dreadful for them.
Young describes Musa’s second-season struggle, saying, “Musa’s powers are more internal, which is frustrating for her as someone who watches her friends get to use their powers externally.” And it must be disheartening for her to feel that her efforts are going to waste. Since Musa dances in our series, she is an honest, flesh-and-blood individual. What if, in addition to her mental and emotional capabilities, she felt empowered by the ability to use her body to bring about change? Cutting off a facet of your personality is a short-term solution at best.
Eventually, Musa “needs to have a reckoning with who she is as a fairy and what she wants to become,” Young says of her character.
Flora’s Identity Crisis
Flora, a fan favorite, didn’t make her debut until Season 2, but Young insists that this was always the plan. Knowing that she is a fan favorite, Flora was destined to be a part of this world and the show. It was important that Flora “came in as a breath of fresh air, so that whatever she went through would happen on camera, rather than introducing some tragic backstory from years beforehand.”

In any case, we aren’t currently concerned with Flora’s presence. She caused unimaginable suffering by luring the scrapers to her in the climactic scene, and she needs time to recover.
This year, Young says, “we’re giving her the name Fearless Flora.” So, what will happen when she encounters traumatic experiences? What happens to your sense of self when you can no longer rely on your reputation as a confident, level-headed person who always seems to have it all together? What does that do to who you are as a person?
Beatrix’s Second Act
Beatrix has stated that she is willing to do anything to keep herself alive, but does this include resurrecting herself? The Shadow supposedly visits her grave in the final episode, so the answer is yes.
Tease: “Dowling said that life must be respected but so must death, so there will always be consequences,” uttered by Young. And the Shadow has that ability; it would surprise me if he never used it.
