Phobos has finally found an indisputable way to find his long lost sister: the Star of Threbe. Back in Heatherfield, the Silver Dragon (Hay Lin's family's restaurant) is threatened when Blunk stinks up the joint with his new "home": a garbage dumpster. While the girls try to give Blunk a much-needed bath, Cedric places the Star in his window shop and Elyon walks in and takes it. Now when the girls try to change back, they find themselves stuck in Guardian form and powerless.
