Why did Principal Celestia have to bring up the Fall Formal...?
"A demon. I turned into a raging she-demon."
"And tried to turn everyone here..."
"...into teenage zombies..."
"...for your own personal army!"
Aw, don't be too hard on yourself.
You can't just let the past ruin your life, can you?
"Who cares why it happens?"
"Flash is a great guy and all, but I never really liked-him liked him. I was just using him to become more popular."
Got to get them used to the new me...
...before they learn about the old me.
Who can resist that face?
Sunset meets her new archenemies.
A little put off by Adagio's peculiar behavior...
(Something is just not right with those girls...)
Applejack: "How was the tour?"
"They just acted sort of... strange around me."
A depressed Sunset Shimmer
"When I was Princess Celestia's student back in Equestria, she gave me this."
"Even after I abandoned my studies, I held onto it."
"Deep down, I guess I knew I was making a big mistake, and I wanted to still have a way to reach out to her."
Sunset wishes she hadn't fallen out of Celestia's favor.
Sunset holds her breath...
Twilight is still uncertain of Sunset's motives
"Wow, that's really impressive."
"Guess you really were Princess Celestia's prized pupil."
The question is, are you impressed?
How come I wasn't picked?
Sunset feeling sad and left out
Sunset and Spike are a little uneasy...
"I'll keep an eye on things around here."
What is it about Sunset's preference for dark corridors?
"I'm in a much better place now!"
Still unsure if she's ready.
"If it's any consolation, no one is going to remember you at all by the time we're done."
Feeling torn and confused
Sunset realizes the danger of Rainbow's mad guitar skills
"The real Sunset Shimmer is back!"
"It wasn't a fit of jealous rage!"
"Please, stop fighting! You're scaring me!"
Sunset realizes the Dazzlings' plan is working.
"This is what they've been after all along!"
"They're feeding off of the magic inside you!"
"Why isn't she under their spell?"
"Never takes off her headphones."
Those are my friends! Rock on, girls!!
Step on up to the microphone!
Sunset, we need your help!
Sunset without her jacket.
Now it's your turn to be the hero!
"I hate you, Dazzlings! Curse all three of you! You're my archenemies forever!"
"You're my best friend, Twilight Sparkle, and I love you so very much."
For the first time in Equestrian history, Rebecca Shoichet performs a singing duet with herself!
Perhaps you're worthy of something after all.
Looks like the show's over for the Dazzlings.
Sunset's trademark warm, friendly smile
Does anybody have a tissue?
"Your newfound friend, Sunset Shimmer."
Perhaps someday I'll return home.
Apple Bloom: "Want some help?"
Sunset: "Thanks, Apple Bloom!"
Sunset decides to start opening up for relationships - something she should've done long ago.
Sunset glances at the sunset.
Reflecting upon what was.
From nightmare to nobody.
The Mane 6 reach out to her.
Like a phoenix burning bright...
...I'll show there's another side to me...
Who knows what the future has in store?
Way too many painful memories to count.
Sunset decides to take the photos down.
Sunset discards the photos.
Everyone turns their back on Sunset Shimmer.
How many times is she gonna lose that jacket?
I may not know what the future holds...
...but hear me when I say:
My past does not define me...
'Cause my past is not todaaay!
