[thunder crashes]
[foreboding music plays]
I wish you could've seen it, Dad.
That dragon had nothing on Layla.
[Wildstar neighs]
And you would have loved Wildstar
lighting up that room to save Rory. Ha.
Creepy grim magic rat-bug thing?
Not a problem.
[Sophia chuckles]
I wish I was having
these adventures with you
instead of just seeing you in my dreams.
[Wildstar whinnies]
-[thunder crashes]
-[Wildstar squeals]
Yeah, we'd better go back.
-[Rory] Everybody run for your lives!
Huh? Rory?
[Rory] Oh no! Ravenzella! She's back!
-[suspenseful music plays]
[Isabel] Dude, where'd she go?
-Where's Ravenzella?
-We thought we saw something up there.
[suspenseful music continues]
Where's Rory? I heard him yelling.
Probably already captured,
if I had to guess.
Captured? What do we do? Oh man.
[unicorn squeals]
No. This isn't happening.
It can't be happening. We stopped her.
[Wildstar neighs]
[Ms. Primrose] Riders, be ready!
[dramatic music plays]
Show yourself, Ravenze
-[Layla] What?
Oh, come on!
[Rory laughs]
No one will be mad
if I kick him right now, right?
Only if you give me a turn.
Come on. It was a joke.
You should have seen your faces.
[sighs] Maybe not your face, Ms. Furi.
You can come out now, Storm.
[Storm whinnies]
I thought these weather patterns
seemed unnatural.
Awesome prank, right?
I put it in my top ten best.
Maybe even top five for special effects.
[Ms. Primrose] Rory Carmichael.
This is the last straw.
I've come to expect pranks from you,
but to cause all this panic
in your classmates for a cheap laugh?
I-I thought we could use some fun
after all the grim dark lately.
Your disciplinary record
grows longer every week.
Filling a classroom
with incessant swelling jelly?
Unleashing koi worms into the vents?
Covering the unicorn saddles
in eternally-sticking slime?
Thought I'd be stuck to Leaf
until we graduated.
Not that I completely
hated the idea of that.
I've given you so many chances,
but it's clear to me
you are not serious enough
to continue as a student at this academy.
Serious? I can do that. Check it.
-[fanfare plays]
-[Storm snorts]
[sighs] It pains me to do this,
but, Rory, you are hereby
expelled from Unicorn Academy.
What? Expelled?
[both gasp]
But, but Ms. P
Pack up your things. You'll be leaving
first thing in the morning.
For now, everyone get to bed.
Oh! Rory, Sapphire Dorm
won't be the same without you.
Dibs on his room. I need a second closet.
[Rory groans]
Guess we won't be having
any more late-night study parties.
[sighs] This is the one time
you should've reined it in, dude.
[sad music plays]
Guess you'll have to make
enough trouble for the both of us now.
[Sophia scoffs]
[sad music continues]
[music fades]
The others must be in class.
I can't believe I'm saying this,
but I took it too far this time.
They're gonna cart my butt
out of here any second.
This might be the last time I get to to
[Rory cries]
[Storm whinnies]
I'm sorry I let you down.
[Storm neighs]
[Storm snorts]
You don't think I could?
Now, that sounds like a challenge.
[Storm neighs]
[Rory grunts]
[Rory thuds]
[chuckles] You goof.
[Storm whinnies]
I'll miss you too.
Wait, Storm. That looks way not right.
Ugh. Who got berries in the water?
Old, super rotten berries?
[sinister music plays]
[gasps] Whoa!
Those aren't berries. That's grim magic.
[Storm whinnies]
[Rory yells]
[Rory] Grim magic!
[tense music plays]
[panting] In the stables. Grim magic.
Mr. Carmichael, I thought
I made myself clear about your pranks.
It's not a prank. There's seriously
grim magic in the stables.
Storm and I both saw it.
She almost drank it.
I would not joke about that.
Please, Ms. P.
Lead the way.
[Storm snorts]
See? I hate to say it, but I told you.
But how did grim magic get in here?
[Ms. Wildwood] Watch out!
-Everyone, back away.
-[unicorns neigh]
[Ms. Primrose] Ms. Wildwood, what's wrong?
Well, the girls here
were about to let their unicorns
have a rest after training, but
[girls exclaim]
[Ava] Oh no.
[suspenseful music plays]
This is worse than I thought.
Grim magic has infected our water supply.
It's tainted the well in the stables.
I found that.
While being 100% serious, I might add.
It seems the contamination is spreading.
Under no circumstances should the unicorns
have any of the infected water to drink.
[Leaf grunts]
-But without the Starglow water
-They'll lose their magic.
And unicorns without their powers
versus grim magic
Unicorn Island would be destroyed.
[unicorns squeal]
We can't let that happen.
[unicorn neighs]
We've all seen the damage
grim magic can cause.
But without Ravenzella to control it,
it can be stopped.
-Let's do this.
-We've got this.
I know you want to help,
but this is a matter
for experienced unicorn riders.
We've got plenty of experience.
And you've performed brilliantly.
However, it's my job to make
the decision that best protects you all.
Ms. Wildwood, please bring your students
to the grand hall.
You can continue lessons inside.
We can't waste
the unicorns' magic with field training
until we clean up the water.
[Ms. Wildwood groans]
You heard the lady. Get along.
[melancholy music plays]
-Right behind you, Ms. Wildwood.
-Not you, Mr. Carmichael.
You're to wait at the stables
until I return.
Oh. Right.
[melancholy music continues]
We can't just hide inside
while unicorn magic is at risk.
[Wildstar neighs]
Come on, girl. We've gotta help.
It's what Dad would've done.
Ava, can you cover for me with Wildwood?
I just realized I, uh, left the cap off
my winklewash. I don't want it spilling.
Oh, yeah, no one wants a soapy stable,
especially when there's no water
to rinse it off with. I got you. [giggles]
[suspenseful music plays]
[Wildstar whinnies]
What? This could get dangerous.
Now come on. This island needs us. Hyah!
[melancholy music plays]
[Wildstar neighs]
[Storm snorts]
[sinister whooshing]
[foreboding music plays]
[sinister whooshing]
Whoa! It's okay, girl.
Let's see if we can clear the water
before the grim magic gets too far.
[Wildstar neighs]
[Sophia] Uh,
or not.
-[Wildstar snorts]
-Weird. It's swimming upstream.
[Wildstar snorts]
-Where is it trying to go?
-[Wildstar whinnies]
Right. Doesn't matter.
'Cause we'll be there to stop it.
-[Wildstar neighs]
[twigs crack]
[Sophia] Huh?
Whoa! Friendly fire, friendly fire!
Rory! What are you doing here?
Besides wasting Wildstar's magic.
You're the one
who snuck off to fight evil alone.
-We thought you could use some backup.
-Right. Let me guess.
You save me, you're a hero,
and suddenly you're not expelled anymore?
I mean, we had nothing else to do.
Okay, yes, hero-ing it up would improve
my chances of being un-expelled.
But only if you need saving,
which obviously not.
Exactly. We don't need your help.
Well, if you change your mind,
we'll just be right here,
looking to get back on your good side.
Or even just your neutral side
at this point. Sheesh.
I know you're worried
about the grim magic,
but Ms. Primrose will take care of it.
Saving the day
is what the unicorn riders do,
and that's what I gotta
train you up to do too.
Without ridin'.
All right!
We were gonna work on jumps today,
but it's not really an inside activity,
so let's see
what this has to say about it.
So, uh, who can tell us how many strides
a unicorn takes before a jump?
[unicorns neigh]
As many as he needs to?
Actually, there isn't
a set numerical standard.
Stride range is determined by
the height of the unicorns, the jump,
and the angle of the slope they're on.
If you turn to page 54 in the text,
you'll see some neat formulas
that can help us calculate the trajectory
and momentum required
when approaching any jump.
Though none account
for the unique magical properties
of each unicorn's powers.
[foreboding music plays]
[Wildstar neighs]
Close call.
But you've gotta save your magic.
Without clean water, you can't restore it.
[Wildstar snorts]
On the road with Storm and Wildstar ♪
Gotta be heroes
'Cause that water looks bizarre ♪
Can you not?
Well, I wouldn't have to sing if someone
would take the time to converse with me.
[Sophia groans]
Oh. Am I invisible?
Storm, do you have
the power of invisibility now?
Seriously, what's wrong?
I'm the one having the worst day ever.
-Why the sudden silent treatment?
-Why do you think?
Because I make you tongue-tied?
You think Ravenzella is funny?
[Storm snorts]
Maybe you don't take
any of this seriously, but I do.
My dad sacrificed everything
to defeat her.
She almost destroyed our unicorns,
and you're making jokes about her.
Just forget it.
-I do, you know.
-Do what?
Take it seriously.
I mean, when we fought Ravenzella,
Storm almost, you know Well
And now with
this grim magic attacking everything,
I guess I thought
if I could make people laugh at it,
it wouldn't seem so scary anymore.
But you're right.
I wasn't thinking about what it would mean
to you. I'm really, really sorry, Sophia.
Hm. Apology accepted.
[sprightly music plays]
Ooh! Ow!
I thought apology accepted.
Now apology accepted. [giggles]
Just don't do it again.
[chuckles] Yeah, lesson learned.
From the stinging pain going up my arm.
Does this mean I'm back on your good side?
No! But you clawed your way up to neutral.
Yes! Progress. I'll take it.
So as your unicorn goes over the jump,
you wanna kinda follow their motion.
Heels down, and
[Layla gasps]
[Ms. Wildwood] You know what?
Why don't I rustle up a whiteboard
and an ice pack for this caboose?
Man, classroom teaching
is really not her thing.
Why didn't she just show us on Rush?
Sophia's been gone a long time.
You don't think she went off
to fight the grim magic?
Alone? No way. She'd never do that.
Really? It feels like
she definitely would.
Uh-uh. She wouldn't put herself
into danger without telling me.
We made a promise.
She probably just got back to the stable
and her winklewash had spilled,
so she's mopping it up.
[gasps] Or maybe a fluffhopper took the
mop before she could, and she chased it.
But then she got lost in the woods
and needs our help.
Yeah. That's definitely what's happening.
What's all this?
Sophia lied to Ava
and went off to fight grim magic alone.
What?! Oh, that is so like her!
Ugh, come on. We can't let her
hog all the glory. [whistles]
[tense music plays]
Fine. But only because
Sophia might need help
catching that fluffhopper
that she's definitely chasing.
How do we figure out where Sophia went?
We should start in the library,
look up books on tracking
Or we follow them.
[dramatic music plays]
Wherever trouble is
That's probably where Sophia is too.
[dramatic music continues]
[music fades]
-[whispering voice] Sophia.
Hey, not that I don't like improvising,
but what is our plan here?
Follow the grim magic.
It's swimming toward something upstream.
Wherever it's going,
it'll be bad news for unicorn magic.
So we're going right towards the danger.
-[whispering voice] Sophia.
-Makes sense.
-Hey, I wasn't judging your non-plan.
-Sh, I hear something.
[whispering voice] Sophia.
Okay, I was judging it, but
Would you just It's something else.
Voices. It feels like
someone's trying to talk to me.
Grim magic's bad enough.
I can't deal with you suddenly
hearing voices in your head too.
[whispering voice] Sophia.
Uh-oh. Now I hear it.
Are shared delusions a thing?
-[whispering voice] Sophia.
-It's coming from there.
[whispering voice] Sophia.
-[mysterious music plays]
-[unicorns whinny]
-You guys know this place?
-[Storm neighs]
[whispering voice] Sophia.
[gasps and sighs]
I don't want to alarm anyone,
but are the trees talking?
And how do they know your name?
You think they know mine too?
-I can't tell if I want that or not.
-[whispering voice] Sophia.
-Uh, hello?
-[whispering voice] He's calling to you.
Uh, nope, nope. Do not want.
Who's calling to me? My dad? [grunts]
Please, if you know something,
tell me what happened to him.
[whispering voice] A vision awaits you
below the water.
A A vision awaits me below the water?
What does that mean?
Please. I don't understand.
Just give me a little more direction.
Uh, Sophia? I know you're having
a very important thing right now,
but I figured out
what the grim magic is aiming for.
It's going for Starglow Lake.
[gasps] We can't let that happen.
[suspenseful music plays]
Starglow Lake is the source of
all unicorn magic. If it gets poisoned
Unicorn powers disappear.
So let's go stop it.
Hyah! Let's go.
[suspenseful music continues]
A vision awaits me beneath the water?
Do you think those trees
were talking about the lake?
Yeah, I wouldn't recommend
going beneath this water.
Unless the vision they were talking about
was a black void of infinite sadness.
Uh, right. So, what do we do?
I may have an idea.
I'd be offended
by your lack of faith in me,
except I'm kind of feeling
the exact same way right now.
Does Wildstar have enough magic
to get Storm and me out over the lake?
Like, right over the middle of it?
I don't know.
It's been a while since she's had water.
[Wildstar neighs]
Think you've got it in you, girl?
[Wildstar neighs]
Cool. Great. So no excuse.
[sighs] If you get us out there,
I think Storm can whip up a cyclone
strong enough to pull the grim magic
out of the lake.
What? Rory, no. There's no way
you two can control a cyclone.
I know you're trying to get back into
Ms. Primrose's good books, but it's
This isn't about me, or Ms. Primrose,
and definitely not books.
I know it's dangerous, but we have to try.
We can't just let
Unicorn Island go down like this.
[dramatic music plays]
Okay. We don't have any better ideas,
so let's give yours a shot.
There's the boost of confidence
I wanted out of this conversation.
-All right, girl. Let's do this.
-[Storm neighs]
Besides, if I'm getting
kicked out of here,
I might as well go out with a bang, right?
[Wildstar whinnies]
[dramatic music continues]
Let's go, Storm.
[dramatic music continues]
Okay. All of Unicorn Island
and everyone on it
is depending on us
to not goof around this time,
so no pressure or anything.
[dramatic music plays]
[wind howls]
[Rory gasps] Come on.
[Rory strains]
We've gotta make it stronger!
It's working.
[Storm neighs]
No matter what, keep going.
I've got your back, Storm.
[dramatic music continues]
Come on, Rory! You can do this!
[Wildstar squeals]
[dramatic music continues]
Just hold on a little longer! [strains]
[Layla] Now!
Ms. Mendoza, what are you doing here?
Helping Rory.
Rory's inside that?
[wind howls]
[dramatic music plays]
[Rory strains]
[Storm neighs]
Give it everything you've got!
[dramatic music continues]
[Storm squeals]
[dramatic music continues]
[Rory strains]
[Storm squeals]
[dramatic music continues]
[Storm roars]
[music fades]
They did it!
-Yeah, dude!
[Ms. Primrose sighs]
Okay, but where are they?
-[Isabel] Storm!
Where are you guys?
-[Sophia] Storm!
-[Ava] Rory!
-[ice crackles]
