In Z is for Zenith, I was already given a moment to swoon over Matt's sexy, enraged delivery of "Why can't they come back?!" when the girls have transformed into their elemental forms. Upon further consideration though, I realized that among other things, Matt's rage was entirely justified not only because his beloved girlfriend was turned into a corporeal mass of lightning along with her friends, but because the entire situation happened at Nerissa's suggestion. From her fantasy inside the crystal, it was clear she'd intended to once again use people, against their will to further her plans. Matt, who'd already been made a pawn in her schemes, was probably ready to tear the bitch a new one. Nerissa was pretty lucky she ended up trapped in that crystal after all.
In the cartoon Phobos fell for Will's plan to make him lose the powers taken from Nerissa by having him swear on the Heart of Kandrakar to not use them for himself and then trick him into walking to Kandrakar in arms, but Cedric saw through it since the beginning. I was just surprised as anyone that Cedric had deduced exactly what Will's plan was, but then I realized: it's based on an oath. Something that Cedric is an expert of, being the resident Consummate Liar (the comic book even called him 'The Prince of Lies' in more than one occasion) and a book lover and oaths are based on the words he's a master of. Of course he knew exactly what would happen if Phobos swore that oath!
Phobos took a few moments before swearing that oath. He was relying on Cedric to warn him if there was any danger. Too bad that Cedric was already plotting against him...
It is somewhat ironic that the redhead Will Vandom is the leader of a group called WITCH. Back in the middle ages, redheads were often considered witches.
Why didn't Cornelia object to Will being Elyon' s regent in "Q is for Quarry"? I was expecting her to say she was best suited because she was Elyon' s best friend. But, she made no remark or sarcastic expression at all. Why? Because she remembered her temporary power upgrade in "N is for Narcissist". She didn't say anything because she knew that it would probably sound hypocritical. And she was also hoping that Will might've also remembered the incident.
The Oracle might choose a Guardian based on their magical lineage based on the five elements. Hay Lin is the granddaughter of the previous Air Guardian and Cornelia is the older sister of the Heart of Earth.
In the comic the 'elemental' power of the Keeper originates from bonds, and manifests as energy blasts. It doesn't seem dangerous... Until you bring this notion to the logical extreme: the Keeper of the Heart has absolute power over the bonds of matter and energy. With enough control she could produce a lot of gold out of thin air, disrupting world economy, produce weapon-grade uranium out of anything, make things explode, or make anything disappear! Thankfully Will doesn't seem inclined, even if she has realized it during the New Power arc... But Nerissa not only was inclined, she already did it to Cassidy! All of sudden the utter terror everyone in Kandrakar had of her and the notion that its walls would be useless against Nerissa when they did hold back Will and her group make an horrible sense...
Did Tony Vandom (in the cartoons) send his daughter a birthday card or even call her in the episode "Happy Birthday, Will"? Susan did reveal that he disappeared for months. So the possibility is there.
Since the Tony in the show isn't a Jerkass like he was in the comics, a question remains: Why did he disappear for months?
Who's to say he isn't? He seemed to be encouraging Will to shun her responsibilities in "N is for Narcissist." Maybe he's trying to appear more amiable than Susan so he convince Will to go along with whatever he recommends?
In the comics it's implied Nerissa was "destined" to be corrupted BY the Heart of Kandrakhar. Will worries that she herself may become corrupted several times. If destiny says so, then who's to say she won't be?
It wasn't that Nerissa was destined per se, but that Keepers of the Heart have to be more careful to not be corrupted by the absolute power that the Heart entails. Nerissa heart wasn't strong enough, Will is.
