Set on Waverly Place in Manhattan, New York's Greenwich Village neighborhood, Wizards of Waverly Place centers on the Italian-Mexican Russo family, which includes Alex (Selena Gomez), her older brother Justin (David Henrie) and their younger brother Max (Jake T. Austin). The three Russo siblings are wizards in training and live with their Italian-American father Jerry (David DeLuise), a former wizard, and their Mexican-American mother, Theresa (Maria Canals Barrera) who is a mortal.

[[[Wizards of Waverly Place (season 1)|edit]]] Opening sequenceEdit

The sequence begins with Alex (Selena Gomez) waking up in the morning with her alarm clock buzzing off. She uses a spell to make the day back to 6:30. She then goes into the bathroom where Justin (David Henrie) is observing himself in the mirror where Alex pushes him to the side. He gets annoyed and then uses magic to put her in to the mirror. In the kitchen, Max (Jake T. Austin) has an orange which he turns into a vanilla cupcake. Meanwhile, Harper (Jennifer Stone) meets Alex at the front door. Back at the kitchen, Max is about to put his cupcake into his backpack when his mother, Theresa (Maria Canals Barrera), makes him turn it back into an orange. Alex tells her mother that she is late for school (which would be weird because earlier Alex made the day earlier). In the lair, Jerry (David DeLuise) is talking to someone when a spell-book flies away. He then goes to retrieve it. In the sub shop, Alex opens her book bag where the spell book goes into. Jerry lectures her as the main title card appears. Then the four friends walk to school. Throughout the sequence, the furniture in the background seems to be moving around.

Jerry gives Alex another shot at lessons and while they are riding Jerry notices that Alex has improved.

Notes: Jerry metioned Justin's age of 18 when Justin told him it was 16. At the time, the actor David Henrie was 18. This is the last episode in broadcast order to use the FilmLook image processing; it was dropped after the production of "First Kiss" (which was already broadcast), likely due to its incompatibility with the visual effects in the series. Until the second season finale "Retest", the video frame rate was at 50 frames per second. This is the only episode of the series to feature outtakes during the tag scene. Two different outtakes were seen in the tag scene during the end credits, both of which feature an introduction by Selena Gomez. Both outtakes are from the scene at the end of Act I in which Jerry (David DeLuise) teaches Alex (Gomez) to fly a magic carpet. Earlier broadcasts of this episode featured an outtake in which the magic carpet setup overturns and Selena and David supposedly fall over with it. Later broadcasts replaced this with an outtake from the same scene where Alex and Jerry scream as the carpet goes out of control. Absent: Jennifer Stone as Harper Finkle

The opening sequence is the same as it was for the previous seasons. The characters in the opening sequence still remain in Standard Definiton, only the background being converted to high definition.

The sequence begins with Alex (Selena Gomez) waking up in the morning with her alarm clock buzzing off. She uses a spell to make the day back to 6:30. She then goes into the bathroom where Justin (David Henrie) is observing himself in the mirror where Alex pushes him to the side. He gets annoyed and then uses magic to put her in to the mirror. In the kitchen, Max (Jake T. Austin) has an orange which turns into a chocolate cupcake. Meanwhile, Harper (Jennifer Stone) meets Alex at the front door. Back at the kitchen, Max is about to put his cupcake into his backpack when his mother, Terresa (Maria Canals Barrera), makes him turn it back into an orange. Alex tells her mother that she is late for school (which would be weird because earlier Alex made the day earlier). In the lair, Jerry (David DeLuise) is talking to someone when a spellbook flies away. He then goes to retrieve it. In the sub shop, Alex opens her book bag where the spell book goes into. Jerry lectures her as the main title card appears. Then the four friends walk to school.

Justin believes that they can wait till morning for a worker to let them out, but quickly realizes otherwise when he remembers that exposure to sunlight will incinerate Juliet. Justin ultimately decides that Juliet needs to look in the mummy's eyes and become his slave in order to leave so she will not be destroyed, though he promises to hunt down the mummy and save her one day.

Meanwhile, Alex, in an attempt to sabotage Max's increasingly good behavior and gain a better chance at winning the wizard competition, has Harper separate Conscience from Max, and Max's behavior becomes increasingly horrific; however, she quickly rushes to fix the problem when Jerry informs her that Conscience will become his own person if he is separated from Max for too long.

At odds with Justin, Mason transforms into a full Werewolf and starts to attack Justin, which results in being attacked by Juliet. During the fight, Juliet bites Mason and is scratched by him in turn: as a result, Juliet loses her vampire powers and quickly ages into a white-haired old lady, and Mason transforms into an actual wolf.

Spells: Fortunato Amontillado - Causes a person to come to the wizard depending on where he or she is. Guest starring: Hayley Kiyoko as Stevie Nichols, Richard Chiu as Warren Nichols, Ezra Weisz as Jack Clown Absent: Maria Canals Barrera as Theresa Russo

Notes: The spell "Fortunato Amontillado" is a reference to Edgar Allan Poe story "The Cask of Amontillado" dealing with passing someone trapped through a barrier, like in the story where the main character seals his enemy up by chaining him to a wall and sealing that section of the room up by building a wall leaving him there to die. The "Transfer of Powers" ceremony is contradicting to Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie, when Alex becomes a full wizard without an official ceremony. The Jack-In-the-Box says the address of City Hall is 1313 Mockingbird Lane. This is a reference to The Munsters and the address of their mansion.
