I need to get me one of these.
No sign of King Sombra here.
Those sparkling eyes.
Gotta do what now?
Well, I know that!
Why can't you enjoy the scenery too!
You can't be serious Rainbow!
Loss of words.
Rainbow's words are sinking in.
Rarity, nose to nose with a concealed emotion Rainbow Dash.
Rainbow's got you, Rarity.
"Her magic will not last forever"...
The heavy burden Princess Cadance bears.
"She is NOT fine.."
Who said what now?
"That's why we're ALL here!.."
"There are CRYSTAL PONIES???"
Rarity, what's the matter with you?
Oh uh oops.
Rarity releases her hair.
It's cool right?
I hope they don't remember this.
"A research paper!"
All right, Twilight is looking at us.
Twilight and Spike at the doorstep of a crystal pony.
Twilight whispering to Spike.
"Well, that was a bust!"
Twilight and Spike, as they leave the crystal pony's house.
Rainbow Dash is determined to get answers!
"You gotta know something!"
Fluttershy remembering her assertive training from a while back.
Striking fear, Fluttershy style
"Oh, I can see you're busy. That's fine.."
"Time to gather some intel."
"It looks the same, but it doesn't feel the same."
"Thats because it ISN'T!'"'
The Crystal Palace
How did they know?
Must have noticed my night vision goggles
A smile is hidden on Pinkie Pie's face.
Pinkie pie breaking logic as usual.
Rarity is a Crystal Pony.
Rarity just looks magnificent.
Such an embarrassment!
Rarity flicking her beautiful hair.
Back away from the crazy pony.
How proud Rarity looks.
Rarity & Rainbow Dash arrive to give their progress reports.
"I got nothin' so far!"
The Thing is in Equestria now
What am I standing in?
"Oh why didn't you say so?"
And the Crystal Kingdom anthem
Doing everything according to the book.
They sure love to sing.
It looks amazing!
What is this thing?
The crystal empire librarian.
Where she go?
While the two mares chat about something important that is not presented yet thanks to the writer, Rainbow Dash is busy eating some corn.
"Of course, we have it!"
"Without the crystal heart, right?"
Say what now?
She regains her memory about the crystal heart.
She kind of passed out.
...but I still have to continue with my duty.
Here it comes.
Force Field is being revived.
Sombra loses part of his horn. This might not end well.
A piece of red horn in the ground.
That's not good.
Got to stay strong.
It really takes much energy to keep the force field up.
I got you sweetie.
It's all going to be okay.
"I'll retrieve the heart".
"Let's do this".
on her way to find the Crystal Heart.
Rainbow's still flying after her.
Now they're heading down the stairs.
Rainbow keeps talking to Twilight.
"The Crystal ponies must not find out the heart is fake."
Twilight looks a little confused.
Still talking to each other.
Hmm, this heart won't fool anypony.
Nothing to see here...
is going to have a hard time preventing other ponies from looking at the "Crystal" heart.
Rainbow, you're going to be assigned a task.
...and Rainbow flies off.
Twilight looks up at her brother.
Stay strong Cadance.
This is not a good sign.
A hoop around a Crystal. Is this some sort of game?
Eeyup, it is. Seems enjoyable.
Apparently it is for the Crystal ponies
First time I see a pony eating corncob.
Who doesn't enjoy eating?
Good job Fluttershy.
A pony is wearing a hat.
Rarity, the master of weaving with straw.
Good job Rarity.
Behold the perfect basket.
Rarity knows how to make ponies happy.
All the ponies gather around Rarity
Something wrong Spike?
Spike and Rarity look at each other.
Rarity seems to be happy with her success.
Rarity & Spike enjoying good progress.
Rainbow whispers Rarity something.
The facial expression does not mean anything good.
Everypony's watching you for signs...
What are you looking at Rainbow?
A quick escape, sneaky.
Uh...I just saved a bunch of money on insurance by switching to Draco?
Little Spike will sure love face painting.
That's one tight hug.
Ponies are happy, it must remain that way.
What's happening here?
She passes on the news to Spike.
As expected Spike does not like them as well.
Where is he heading?
That went pretty well.
Twilight thinks hard all the time.
"Who wants a flugelhorn?"
"I want a flugelhorn!"
Not asking you Pinkie!
"Who else wants a flugelhorn?"
"I want a flugelhorn!"
After some heavy thinking...
...that the Crystal Heart might be in the castle.
Here comes Spike to join her in her quest for the missing Crystal Heart.
I'm coming with you
I have to retrieve the crystal heart by myself
Spike would like to come along.
Not a claw, Spike
And I depart to full speed.
Careful Spike, hold on tight.
Where are we going exactly?
Press on Twilight.
Hang on Spike.
Twilight quick question expression.
Twilight and Spike, going into the castle.
Nothing to see here.
Suddenly, Rainbow Dash
Suspicious much, Rainbow?
Head turn to the left!
A startling landing indeed.
What are you looking at?
That's what I thought!
What I mean is
Let me keep the crystal ponies away from the fake heart
Seeing my awesomeness
Pretty good mood
Aw, Dashie looks so adorable here
Talk about a surprise.
Come on, Knight Fluttershy.
How are y'all feelin'?
Havin' a good time?
The best I've had in over a thousand years!
Well, that's good!
Gotta renew that spirit of love and unity if you're gonna power up that Crystal Heart, right?
I sure would like to see it before the ceremony.
It's been such a long time.
Oh, I hear ya
Gettin' a little toasty out here.
Bet you'd like to cool off with a little Crystal Empire nectar!
I hear there's a joustin' match about to start!
You don't wanna miss that!
Come on, Twilight...
these crystal ponies are more curious than a cat!
Well, it's not under here
It's gotta be here somewhere
Did you find it?
Oh adorable Twilight.
Twilight is MegaMare
Now Twilight can use dark magic!? What is Equestria coming too?
That was a little trick Celestia taught me
That's quite a long way down.
You stay here
If you insist
I can't even tell how far down this goes
"I didn't know I could levitate myself"
Ouch, that MUST have hurt
Twilight under the door's hypnosis
It's alright, Spike.
That will never, ever happen.
Rainbow Dash showing off her pride.
I AM READY!
The Crystal Ponies, ready to watch some jousting.
I don't wanna go through with this...
We need a distraction!
Oh! There's our cue!
She's outta here!
Berry Punch enjoying the spectacle.
"Isn't there somepony else?"
Please don't make me do that again. I've had enough Jousting for one day.
""The fate of an entire empire rests on us showing these ponies a good time."
"But, y'know, if that isn't important to you..."
"Okay, okay, I'll take it easy on you next time."
"But not too easy."
"I've got a reputation to maintain!"
That's many flights of stairs...
Ooh! This must be what being Pinkie Pie feels like!
What's up with that smile?
Oh, the irony!
Twilight is scared...
...now Spike is scared?
Anyone else reminded of the 3rd Pokemon movie?
You have to save the day Spike!
No more magic.
He's back! I can't take it!
Look upon me, you miserable slaves, and DESPAIR!
A spark of hope in Princess Cadance's eyes.
Princess Cadance with her wings spread out.
King Sombra's body has returned
And he's happy about that.
When in doubt, throw your wife.
The Crystal Heart Heart and Spike are saved!
"The crystal heart has returned."
Such glory being displayed.
Victory is at hand!
Time for sparkle!
Princess Cadance and Spike, they look amazing.
They look shiny.
King Sombra blows up. King Sombra BLOWS UP!
Good job Spike.
How relieved Twilight is.
