When Evil Alex gets roped into a charming young wizard's foreboding plan to take over the world, Good Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a monumental battle between the two versions of herself - all atop the Tower of Pisa.

18 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was the best episode of our charming Russo family. Alex proves again that she is grown up enough to be the family wizard, meanwhile all of her relatives are to doubt that, even her charming werewolf boyfriend. Only Harper stands up for her showing the power of their strong friendship. Although in the series the special effects are not usually perfect, in this case the fighting scene between the two Alexes is well-organized and full of action, really enjoyable. The silliness of Max is twice as much as usually, a kind of compensation I guess for the lack of Justin's know it all attitude. Friends,family and feelings, and a little taste of Italy from the always perfectly dressed queen of sarcasm Alex Russo and her family.
