In The Enchantress Returns, Alex and Conner must assemble the Wand of Wonderment in order to defeat the Evil Enchantress. The Wand of Wonderment is made out of the six most prized posessions of the six most hated people in the world; one of which is the Wicked Stepmother.
The twins go to the Wicked Stepmother's Estate without knowing what her most prized posession is. As they talk, they realize it is her wedding ring- her cruelty towards Cinderella was a result of her grief over having lost her husband.
