Opening sequence Edit
Season 4 of the series features a revamped opening sequence with clips from Season 3 and 4. The opening sequence takes place in the lair. Footage of Alex Russo (Selena Gomez) and Justin Russo (David Henrie) are shown in the Crystal replay ball from the season starter Alex Tells the World. Then, a spell book opens and footage of Max (Jake T. Austin) and Harper Finkle (Jennifer Stone) appear. After that, footage of Theresa Russo (María Canals Barrera) and Jerry Russo (David DeLuise) are shown in a cauldron. After the footage is played, Alex transports them to Times Square, with Alex waving her wand to reveal the title logo and the name of the creator. The theme song Everything is Not What It Seems has also been remixed and sung by Selena Gomez & the Scene.
Alex quits the wizard competition because she and Justin were sent back to level one after "exposing" wizardry in "Alex Tells the World" leaving Max the most expected to become the family wizard. From the episode, "Alex Gives Up," Alex and Mason have broken up and remain close friends. And Justin tries to tutor a class of delinquent wizards.
However, the plot takes a quick turn in the episode "Journey to the Center of Mason", where Alex promises Mason she will re-enter the Wizard Competition to save their relationship, knowing that they constantly think about each other. From the episode, "Three Maxes and a Little Lady", Max turns into a girl due to a spell defect and becomes Maxine Russo, portrayed by Bailee Madison.
In the "Wizards vs. Angels" three-part story, Justin falls in love with Rosie who appears to be an angel but it is later found out that she is an angel of darkness.
Near the end of the series, during the 4-part "Wizards of Apartment 13B" shows Alex and Harper's misadventures as they move into a magical apartment filled with all kind of supernatural beings. Ultimately they fight against the leader of the Dark Angels, Gorog, by using the mythical Power of Three.
With the magical apartment gone, Alex and Harper return to Waverly Place. There they travel through time and get mixed in a magic fairy tale.
