Continuing from the first episode, Nightmare Moon appears at the Summer Sun Celebration. Mayor Mare cries, "Seizer her!"
The guards charge at Nightmare Moon.
Royal guards have been downed apparently. Poor guys.
must have good reflection skills to be able to bite Rainbow's
when she's about to fly off.
Nightmare Moon,escaping the Town Hall.
Twilight causing ruckus while searching for answers.
"How can I stop Night Mare Moon?!"
Back in the library, Twilight Sparkle looks for books on the elusive Elements of Harmony.
"And what are the Elements of Harmony?"
"And how did you know about Nightmare Moon?"
Rainbow Dash concerning Twilight.
Applejack shows up and pulls back Rainbow Dash, telling her to "simmer down".
Applejack and the others, all have worried, concerned looks.
"I read all about the prediction of Nightmare Moon."
"Some mysterious objects called the Elements of Harmony are the only things that can stop her..."
"..but I don't know what they are, where to find them: I don't even know what they do!"
Pinkie Pie: "The Elements of Harmony: A Reference Guide."
Pinkie getting pushed away by Twilight.
"How did you find that?!"
Fluttershy seems rather amused by the book.
"There are six Elements of Harmony, but only five are known: Kindness, Laughter, Generosity, Honesty and Loyalty. The sixth is a complete mystery."
"It is said, the last known location of the five elements was in the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters."
"It is located in what is now--"
Ponies vs. the Everfree Forest
Pinkie: "Whee, let's go!"
"I appreciate the offer."
"but I'd really rather do this on my own."
Applejack says, "No can do, sugarcube. We sure ain't lettin' any friend of ours go into that creepy place alone."
Applejack insists they all go in with her.
The friends walk straight into the forest, agreeing to stick to Twilight "like caramel on a candy apple".
"Especially if there's candy apples in there."
"What? Those things are good."
Twilight sighs before following her friends into the forest.
Twilight asks her friends, "So, none of you have been in here before?"
"And it ain't natural. Folk say it don't work the same as Equestria."
As she speaks, the mist seeps into the cliff that they are walking on.
"Nopony knows. You know why?"
Applejack tells her to "quit it".
"'Cause everypony who's ever come in..."
The cliff begins to fall..
...The ponies begin to fall off..
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy dive in to save them.
"Oh my goodness, oh my goodness!"
Fluttershy dives in to the rescue.
Delicately grabs the Lady.
Quick! Grab the random plant!
Twilight slides to the very edge of the cliff.
Twilight hangs on for dear life.
Applejack lets go of her vine.
Don't worry, I got you sugarcube.
"Are you crazy?" ""No I ain't. I promise you'll be safe.""
"What I'm sayin' to you is the honest truth. Let go, and you'll be safe."
Twilight sure is relieved.
Twilight is grateful for what Applejack did.
Fluttershy: "Sorry girls. I'm not used to holding anything more than a bunny or two."
There goes Nightmare Moon.
The mist chooses its next peril for the friends.
"And once Pinkie and Rarity were saved, whoosh... Me and Fluttershy loop-de-loop around and WHAM! Caught you right in the nick of time."
"Yes, Rainbow, I was there, and I'm very grateful..."
A wild Manticore appeared!
Fluttershy is the only one who seems concerned about it.
Rarity runs away while Fluttershy quietly protests, "Wait!"
Applejack on the manticore's back.
"Get along, little doggie!"
However, the manticore bucks Applejack off.
Fluttershy's mane is blown aside by Rainbow Dash's flight.
Rainbow Dash and the manticore.
The manticore powerfully smacks Dash with its tail.
Twilight cries, "Rainbow!"
This is the last straw for Twilight.
At that moment, Fluttershy steps in their way and screams, "WAAIT!"
Fluttershy has her ways with wild creatures.
Fluttershy walking up to the manticore.
The friends are astonished to hear Fluttershy saying, "Shh... it's okay."
Fluttershy nuzzles the manticore's paw.
"Oh, you poor, poor little baby."
Manedrocles and the Manticore
The true Element of Kindess.
"How did you know about the thorn?"
"I didn't. Sometimes we all just need to be shown a little kindness."
Twilight Sparkle, With a cute smile.
"Oh wait, I think I stepped in somethin'."
Fluttershy, sees a scary face on a tree.
At first we were like "What the?"
But then were like"AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!"(So much for not being afraid of anything, Rainbow Dash)
This is how Pinkie reacts to the scary trees.
Making faces at the tree.
Looks like Pinkie was trying a little too hard...
"Pinkie, what are you doing? Run!"
"When I was a little filly and the sun was going do-o-own...
The darkness and the shadows,
...they would always make me
"I'd hide under my pillow, from what I thought I saw."
"She said, 'Pinkie, you gotta stand up tall, learn to face your fears...'" Dash is not happy about this song
"'You'll see that they can't hurt you: just laugh to make them disappear.'"
Just laugh to make the Ghosties disappear. See? Easy as Pie!
Whoa! It really works! Maybe WE should try!
"So..." Pinkie what's wrong with your lips
"Crack up at the creepy!"
"Whoop it up with the weepy!"
"And tell that big dumb scary face to take a hike and leave you alone and-
"if he thinks he can scare you then he's got another thing coming-"
"-and the very idea of such a thing just makes you wanna... hahahaha...heh... Laugh!"
Pinkie Pie, the Element of Laughter.
Twilight and Pinkie, laughing.
Their path is impeded by a river.
The six friends look on to a rather strange river.
They encounter a sobbing sea serpent.
"I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when this tacky little cloud of purple smoke just whisked past me and tore half of my beloved mustache clean off, and now I look simply horrid."
What's soaking wet and irritated? Pinkie kinda looks like her filly self before the sonic rainboom.
"Oh, give me a break." "That's what all the fuss is about?"
"Why, of course it is. How can you be so insensitive?"
"Oh, just look at him. Such lovely luminescent scales."
Rarity talking to the sea serpent.
"I simply cannot let such a crime against fabulosity go uncorrected."
Biting off one of the serpent's scales.
Rarity, cutting off her beautiful tail..
Ooh my new mustache, I simply adore it!
Rarity had cut off her tail for the serpent's mustache.
"Oh. It's fine, my dear. Short tails are in this season. Besides, it'll grow back."
She sure knows Generosity!
"So would the mustache..."
Trotting happily though the water.
A near death experience just happened.
What's with you and falling off of cliffs?
Leave the job for Rainbow Dash
Rainbow Dash faces the Shadowbolts
The Shadowbolts tell her, "We're the greatest aerial team in the Everfree Forest, and soon we will be the greatest in all Equestria...but first, we need a captain."
Rainbow knows she's TOTALLY ADORABLE
Dash is told that she would be the new captain of the Shadowbolts
The Shadowbolts, telling Rainbow to decide between them or her friends.
"Rainbow, what's taking so long?"
Seeing Rainbow with the Shadowbolts.
Making the smoke too thick to hear Twilight's voice.
Dash doesn't want to leave her friends behind
Did she just turn us down?!
She didn't leave her friends behind
The main cast entering the chamber with the elements.
"Whoa. Come on, Twilight. Isn't this what you've been waitin' for?"
Fluttershy with an element in her hooves.
Wait, they're not all here though.
Bring forth the sixth element!
"What in the hay is that supposed to mean?"
Twilight going to use magic on the elements.
"Come on now, y'all. She needs to concentrate."
Applejack calling for Twilight, who has disappeared.
A Wild Nightmare Moon Appareared!
You're going to have to deal with me!
Remember they're ponies, not pony-shaped humans.
"You're kidding. You're kidding, right?"
Twilight vs Nightmare Moon.
Come on, just one more try.
For some reason, Nightmare Moon has a purple wing instead of a black one. Whoopsies!
Nightmare Moon is not pleased.
Using magic, in hopes to find the 'spark'.
Oh no! The spark! It's...It's...
About to smash the elements.
"You little foal! Thinking you could defeat me!"
"Now you will never see your princess..."
BUT I WANNA GO TO THE PALACE.
Did somepony just say "free barbuque"?
I think I just saw barbuque sauce over there.
"I shall defeat you with barbeque sauce Nightmare!" "You're kidding right, TWI?"
You think you know the Elements?
The Spirits of the Elements, are right here!
Applejack represents the element of...
"Fluttershy, who tamed the manticore with her compassion, represents the spirit of...kindness!"
Ooh no, that's not happening!
"What happened to my eyes?"
Rainbow Dash has always known she's cute
"You still don't have the sixth element!"
"A different kind of spark!"
"I felt it the very moment I realized how happy I was to hear you, to see you, how much I cared about you."
"The spark ignited inside me when I realized that you all...are my friends!"
Shield yourself, it's your only protection.
Here comes another element,again!
"You see, Nightmare Moon, when those Elements are ignited by the... the spark, that resides in the heart of us all..."
"...it creates the sixth element: the element of..."
Fluttershy's element is about to be created...
Pinkie likes it. Hey,Dash she likes it!
The five elements joined by the six.
By our powers combined...
Nightmare Moon, feeling a little Tired.
The ponies activating the Elements of Harmony.
Now Twilight has creepy eyes
Whoa... that was a wild ride...
rejoicing after being reunited with her tail.
Rarity reunites with her tail.
"It looks just like your cutie mark."
Fluttershy with her necklace.
"Look at mine! Look at mine!"
Twilight with her element.
It sure looks good on me..
You've all done fantastic
The light... it speaks...
Bowing down to Princess Celestia.
Happy to be reunited with her mentor.
But, this Big Crown Thingy...
"I told you that you needed to make some friends, nothing more."
"I saw the signs of Nightmare Moon's return and I knew it was you who had the magic inside to defeat her."
"But you could not unleash it until you let true friendship into your heart."
Nightmare Moon is no more; this is Princess Luna.
Princess Luna with her eyes closed.
Luna, still lying on the floor, opens her eyes to see Princess Celestia.
"It has been a thousand years since I have seen you like this."
"Time to put our differences behind us. We were meant to rule together, little sister."
I've missed you, you know...
The Main 6 watch Celestia try to make peace with Luna. Rarity says,"I love her mane!"
Pinkie Pie loses her balance from leaning over too much.
I want my SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought Celestia was the sun princess, not the swan princess
I missed you, big sister.
The sisters are finally reunited after 1000 years.
Why is it that I always cry during such a happy ending?
The ponies running to Pinkie's party.
Ponies, all going to Pinkie's celebration.
Twilight! Where did you go?
Spike giving Twilight a hug.
Princess Luna, still upset over what happened.
...Awwh, that was so sweet.
My future best friends forever!
...Give Twilight Sparkle, a new task to find the importance of friendship.
I love my new best friends!
got a tad too excited. (animation error)
See, I told you Twilight has lots and lots of new friends.
The first of many blows lands on the fourth wall.
