Wizards Exposed

"Wizards Unleashed" is the twenty-seventh episode of season three of Wizards of Waverly Place, and the seventy-eighth of the overall series. It first aired on October 1, 2010.

Summary

Theresa and Jerry go on an anniversary trip to Connecticut and stay in a cheap motel, using a camera concealed in a teddy bear to check on the Sub Station. After Alex sees a painting dog on the news, she automatically assumes that it is Mason, and the three Russo siblings leave abruptly to find out more about this dog, leaving Harper and Zeke in charge of the Sub Station.

After a bit of investigation, Justin, Max, and Alex locate the mysterious dog, and confirm their suspicions. They discover that Mason was 'saved' and held against his will by a family of country wizards, who agree to give Mason back to Alex on one condition -- they must give up their family portal. Alex agrees to make the exchange, unbeknownst to her brothers, and the country family arrive at the Russos' house for the exchange, but Alex fools them by concealing their portal with an anti-magic realm. Because Alex broke her promise to the country family, the deal falls through and Mason reverts back to his wolf form.

Zeke and Harper are about to kiss.

Meanwhile, Zeke and Harper take care of the Sub Station and Harper, ready to take their relationship to the next level, tries to make Zeke kiss her. Jerry and Theresa witness all this from their hotel room, through the teddy-bear cam Jerry installed before leaving.

The Russo siblings return to the hillbillies' trailer home to search for clues on how to turn Mason back, and they discover that the key to his transformation is the magical jug band instruments the family keeps in their conspicuously labelled chest. They attempt to play the instruments, but Mason only transforms halfway, and is stuck in an inbetween, wolf/human stage. Alex is still thrilled to have him back at first, but the thought of having Mason possibly stuck like this forever frightens and embarrasses her, so she forces him to cover his face whenever they go out in public.

At Zeke's party, Mason's cover is blown and Alex's humiliation is finally apparent to Mason, who becomes very disappointed and angry that she is embarrassed by something as superficial as his looks despite what they've been through. Harper has a talk with Alex about how she never minded being seen with Harper in public even though she wore eccentric clothing that others might not accept, so she should be more accepting of Mason's current looks as well. This makes Alex realize that her relationship with Mason means much more to her than what others may think, so she flashes herself into the elevator where Mason is and apologizes. They go back to Zeke's apartment, unaffected by everyone's stares and gawks and they dance, laughing at all the good memories they shared.

In the end, Justin finds the missing instrument, the mouth harp, and plays it, completing Mason's transformation back into a human.

Trivia

  • This marks the first time Mason has appeared since Wizards vs. Werewolves.
  • Mason's mid wolf form is seen once again in this episode.
  • The Alex-Mason Relationship partially continues in this episode.
  • It's odd, since the Justin-Juliet Relationship had minorly returned, most likely because of the popularity the Mason-Alex Relationship and Justin-Juliet Relationship.
  • Zeke also finds out that Mason is a werewolf and secretly hinting that his friend is a wizard. (However he is lead to believe he dreamed it)
  • Harper and Zeke share their first kiss in this episode
  • Logically if they used the spell Humanoza Espinoza on Mason it should have turned him back into a human/werewolf
  • This episode shows that wands have apps such as a spell calculator app, turn-wand-into-lightsaber app, animal translator app and other apps.
  • In this episode it is found out that every wizard family only gets one portal and the country wizard's outhouse/lair was destroyed as was their portal so if that happens the family will have no way into the wizard world.
  • This is a one hour special. On Disney Channel UK this episode is listed under the title, "Puppy Love". The Selena Gomez & the Scene's song "A Year Without Rain" is featured in this episode. Also this is the first time Justin was seen with a lightsaber, proving that he is a fan of the Star Wars franchise. The True Love Necklace appears once again to see if the evil country wizards' dog is Mason.
  • The app selection on Justin's wand is similar those on Mac computers and phones.
  • Justin and Max's brief lightsaber fight is a reference to those in the Star Wars movies.

Quotes

  • Harper: (to Max) So, how'd it go?
    Max: Pretty good. I ate squirrel, made some new enemies... It was a regular day.
  • Alex: (about Mason) Yes. It was him. But he's being held by some country wizards who grow corn by their beds and have a son with one shoe!
    Harper: Oh, good, I thought you were going to say something crazy.
  • Alex: (about the news of the painting dog) That's him! That's Mason! He loved to paint.
    Justin: I don't think so Alex. Every time you see a dog in a human interest story, you think it's Mason. Remember the skateboarding bulldog?
  • Justin: Alright, guys, it looks like we're going back to that old trailer in the middle of nowhere to find some magical instruments that'll turn your boyfriend human again. (pauses) You're right, our lives are messed up.
  • Alex: Mason, I'm sorry. What we have is so much stronger than all that superficial stuff. The important thing is that we're together. I love you no matter what.
    Mason: I don't know if I can believe you.
    Alex: Well, then I'll prove it.
    Mason: How?
    Alex: The same way people have been doing it for centuries now. By slow-dancing to a romantic pop song.
  • Mason: That's my Alex. Lovely, yet scary.
  • Justin: (to Mason, who is in wolf form and is howling) What is it, boy? What are you trying to tell us? Is there trouble at the old mill?
  • Zeke: I can handle anything now. I kissed a person!
