"Odd Mal Out" is the twentieth episode of the animated short series, Descendants: Wicked World. It premiered on October 28, 2016 and is the second episode in the second season.
The AKs school the VKs on the history of Auradon’s "Jewel-BiLee" ceremony and the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Mal’s family gem.
At the Mad for Tea Cafe, Mal remains confused by what a Jewel-BiLee is, but Audrey helps explain it to her. According to her, the Jewel BiLee is a dignified ceremony where each of them are given their birthright jewels. All the AKs got their jewels years ago, and now, for the first time, they will be bestowing the jewels of the VKs. Audrey Inotes that when the villains were relocated, their jewels were confiscated for safe keeping. As everyone drank their tea, their faces suddenly turn to different colors. Jane earlier cast a little magic on the tea to give them a "healthy glow", but instead it changed the color of their faces. Jane is forgiven by Mal, and is now looking more forward to getting her own jewel at the Jewel-BiLee. However, as their faces returned to normal, the AKs regretfully tell Mal that her mother hid her jewel somewhere on the Isle of the Lost. Everyone had searched but it was never found. With that said, Mal is not getting her own birthright jewel.
Later after returning to their dorm, Mal is very upset and furious about what her mother has done to her. Even as a newt, her mother still manages to ruin her life. However, Mal is not going to let her get away with it this time because she plans to go back to the Isle to find her jewel, and is determined to not allow anyone, not even her mother, to stand in her way.
