Episode Guide

The Jinx

The New Guard is the first episode of W.I.T.s Academy.


Andi arrives at the prestigious W.I.T.S Academy and meets the other Guardians and Witches/Wizards-in-training.


Picking up where the Every Witch Way series finale left off, Andi enters the Magic Realm. She meets the old headmistress, who was replaced by a more strict headmaster. At the Academy, Cameron greets her. Andi doesn't know where to go, and bumps into Ruby and Samantha, who are looking forward to spending their time together as Guardians In Training. Samantha directs her to where she could get her schedules and assignments; her phone will magically have it all when the headmaster assigns them to it using magic. She finds out her roommate is Samantha, and is happy, but gets a little upset when she finds out Agamemnon is the new headmaster. She then meets Luke, who teases her when Agamemnon announces to first and second-year Guardians and WITs. Samantha introduces Ruby and Andi to each other. Agamemnon assigns them to come and see him at a certain time so that they could meet the young WITs whom are in their responsibility. Andi becomes Jessie, Jax Novoa's younger sister and who Andi met in Every Witch Way, and Ben's Guardian.

Their first assignment is to accurately execution the first-era spell; whomever gets the lowest of points in this first task gets expelled.

While practicing, Ruby has Ethan lock the doors of the room Andi and her WITs are in. Something goes wrong with Jesse's spell, and the episode ends with a cliffhanger.

Andi (entering her dorm): Is this a dorm room or a dojo, cause I'm cool with either one.
Andi & Samantha (simultaneously): It's you! You're my roomie? Awesome!
Andi: Okay, we'd better stop that, or it's gonna be a very awkward school year.
Samantha: How about we start with our names?
Andi (extending her hand): I'm Andi.
Samantha (extending her hand and shaking Andi's): Hi, I'm Samantha. Nice to meet you!
Andi: You know, you kind of remind me of a friend back home. *becomes serious* Not into scrapbooks and butterflies, are you?
Samantha: No. I'm all into the yin and the yang. You know, two opposite sides that combine to make a whole. Like, day and night, or the human world and the magic realm or-
Andi (excitedly): Spaghetti and meatballs, rice and beans, pork chops and applesauce!
Samantha: Yeah, sort of.
Agamemnon (sarcastically, mocking her): So, Miss Cruz, are you excited to have a pompous, pain in the neck like myself as your headmaster?
Andi: *laughs nervously* Oh, two way monitor. I was just messing with ya! You know, pompous, pain the neck is a good thing, "that's sick" or "so dope!"
Agamemnon: The last person was messing with me was your friend, Mr. Novoa, and we both know I made his life delightfully miserable.
Jessie (entering the office): Hey! Leave my brother out of it!
Andi: Jessie?
Jessie (dully): Hi Andi.
Andi: I almost forgot you enrolled here. I like to block scary thoughts from my mind. *chuckles*
Jessie: I wish Jax was here.
WIT Girl: You're the sister of the guy who goes out with the Chosen One?
Jessie (a bit annoyed): I also have a name.
Sophie: I hear your brother was so much trouble, he didn't even graduate.
Jessie: Hey, take that back!
Sophie: Fine. He was so much trouble, they kicked him out of the academy. *Jessie throws a pillow at her.*
Jessie (to Andi, perking up): I know, text Emma; she's the Chosen One, I bet she can decipher a spell.
Andi: No, there's no need for that, we totally got this.
Ruby (walking up to them): You know the Chosen One?
Andi (scoffing): What, know her? Emma's my best friend. Yeah, you know I tried to keep count of all the times we saved the realm but uh, just ran out of fingers and toes.
Jessie: Yeah right. *to Ruby, Emily, Ethan and Ben* All she does is carry her magic book for her. *they laugh*
