The Winx head to Santa Monica Pier on the direction of Lorelei’s determination to lead the show. A new assistant, Smee, hypnotizes Ace into putting the girls in a parasurfing challenge race with a group of guys called the Sharks. Lorelei tries to follow but her boat breaks down and she is attacked by sharks (actually mind-controlled by Smee). To make things worse, the guy Sharks are actually zombie pirates. Although the Winx defeat the pirates, Lorelei discovers they are fairies and tries to tell Ace. However, Ace and the audience laugh at her, and Ace fires her from Wow! Meanwhile, Bloom and Roxy track down Evans and Gomez when Jim snatches the pocket-watch from them. They pursue Jim and recover the watch, but find it is broken.
