"Giant Steps" is the sixty-eighth episode of the Disney Channel animated series Elena of Avalor. It premiered on February 7, 2020 and is the nineteenth episode in the third season.


Naomi is seen sailing across the sea some time after departing Avalor back in "The Last Laugh". At her next stop, she receives a letter from Elena. She sends one back to Elena. It's clear the two miss each other. At her next stop, she doesn't have enough money for her purchases. The lady at the counter points her to a poster promising a reward for catching Tziloco, an enchanted crystal bat that's been terrorizing sailors for years. The lady says that her reward-chasing days are over, and she believes Naomi can manage this, not that it'll be easy with Tziloco having made new allies. When she sees Esteban, Ash, and Chatana's pictures on it, Naomi realizes that Ash is joining up with other evil magic-users as part of a plot against Elena and races back to warn Elena. After trading her necklace for the supplies she needs, Naomi heads back to Avalor.

Back in Avalor, Esteban, Ash, Chatana, and Tziiloco appear in front of the Gate to Vallestrella, which Tziloco opens with his magic to open, and they enter Vallestrella. They plan to free Chatana's most powerful monster Kizin. The group finds that two young Jaquins have spotted them, and Esteban suggests they go after them before they warn the king only for Ash to shoot down this idea. Back at Avalor Palace, Naomi arrives back and tells Elena and Mateo what she has discovered. Luna flies in and tells them Ash's group is in Vallestrella. Elena, Mateo, Gabe, and Naomi set out for Vallestrella.

Elena's group arrives in Vallestrella. Elena immediately starts trying to find them using the Scepter of Light's Farsight power. This makes Tziloco's wings start glowing. He tells Ash's group that they are being tracked through magical means. Esteban deduces that Elena is doing so with her scepter. Ash casts her magic blocking spell. Chatana creates baby spider eagles to distract them. The spider eagles makes Elena's group plummet from the sky. Elena and Mateo save them with their magic. Ash's group arrives at the mound where Kizin is imprisoned and set him free. Kizin, however, has no interest in helping Ash's group and instead goes to free his friends, who are imprisoned by Quita Moz. Esteban teleports Ash's group away just as Elena's group appears. Mateo recognizes Kizin and warns that his weak spot is his left foot. Elena sends the Jaquins back to bring the King's guard and her group sets out to stop Kizin. 

Elena's group sets a trap for Kizin: Elena instructs Naomi to tie a rope around a rock, and she and the boys will get Kizin to chase them. When they pass the rope, Naomi will pull the rope tight, so Kizin will trip on it and expose the bottom of his feet, and Elena will blast his weak spot. Unfortunately, when Naomi sees Tziloco, she goes after him thinking she has time. She's proven wrong when Elena, Gabe, and Mateo pass the rope and see that she's not there. Kizin hurts Elena in a way that breaks her right arm and kidnaps Gabe and Mateo. Naomi makes a sling for Elena. Elena confronts Naomi about why she left. Naomi admits that she went after Tziloco so she could collect the reward on him because she needed the money. Elena asks her why she didn't say so earlier as she could've given her the money. Naomi explains she felt she had no right to do so as Elena gave her her boat and because she needs to pay for herself. Elena tells her this is about protecting Avalor and scolds her for not being there when she was needed most. The Jaquins return, and Elena flies to Quita Moz's lair on Skylar with Naomi going after her on Migs. At the lair, Elena has trouble using her scepter with her left hand, and Naomi released Tziloco from her magic bag and uses it to trap Kizin. Ash's group and Elena's group returns to Avalor. Back at the palace, Elena, who now has her arm in a cast, is in the Grand Council room, reading the letters she never sent about how much she missed Naomi when the latter comes in and decides to stay in Avalor. Since Julio has taken Naomi's place on the Grand Council, Naomi decides she'll have to find another way to help the kingdom.
