Nerissa creates the KNIGHTS OF DESTRUCTION - EMBER, TRIDART, SHAGON (who is actually Matt, whom she kidnaps) and KHOR (who is actually Mr. Huggles). These four feed off the negative emotions of their enemies. She sends them to attack W.I.T.C.H. in Heatherfield... where Irma is put in charge of the new campus radio station and pulls a major gaff by calling nebbishy Martin a loser while on the air. The KOD nearly defeat W.I.T.C.H. in a first battle because the various emotional traumas each girl is undergoing perfectly suit the Knights' strengths, but the girls pull themselves together and switch opponents for their second battle, and the Knights are forced to retreat. Irma eventually apologizes to Martin, on the air, and they hint at reconciling.
