[jaunty music plays]
[alarm rings]
[sighs] Morning, Sophia.
Oh, right.
[Ava sighs]
[Rhapsody neighs]
Excellent, class.
As Grammy Rosemary used to say,
"Grooming and care strengthens the pair."
[Cinder neighs]
[Rory] Come on. You'll be so cute.
[Storm whinnies]
-[Storm neighs]
Point made. We'll go au naturel.
Excellent plaits, Ava.
Your day is made with a tidy braid.
Thanks. Sophia actually showed me
how to do these braids last week,
and I've been practicing, and
Actually, I'm not sure
I like it like this.
Well, there are plenty
of fabulous options to choose from.
Rhapsody is partial
to a French braid herself.
[Rhapsody neighs]
Don't worry, Leaf.
I know some braids that will be way cuter.
[scoffs] Yeah, right.
Can I be expelled again?
Because this tension is way worse.
Joking. Mostly.
Not about the tension.
That's still terrible. [clears throat]
Ms. Rosemary, would you show me how
to groom my way out of this conversation?
[Cinder neighs]
Layla, go talk to them.
Me? No, I can't.
I'm terrible at conflict resolution.
Okay, okay.
Hey. Could I borrow
some of your sparkle spray?
I've got some.
My own recipe. Extra sparkle.
She was asking me.
You don't need to butt into everything.
Oh, didn't realize
wanting to help a friend was butting in.
What was that, Glacier?
I need to go, uh, over there
and, uh, brush her, uh, face?
[Glacier snorts]
[Isabel clears throat]
-I told you conflict wasn't my thing.
-My turn.
All right, enough.
Can't you just hug it out and move on?
That's your thing, right? The hugging?
[Rory chuckles awkwardly]
Don't look at me.
This is way better than their usual
"sparkle rainbow friendship hour."
Ugh. Barf.
[clears throat]
Can we please focus on grooming?
This is supposed to be relaxing
for you and your unicorns.
[Wildstar grunts]
[Ava sighs]
-[River whinnies]
-[Isabel grunts]
[River snorts]
-[River neighs]
-[River whinnies]
I feel bad for Ava.
She was just trying to help.
For Ava? Sophia's the one
who got ripped away from her ghost dad.
Ghost? I thought it was, like,
a message from her subconscious.
-You believe in ghosts?
-You don't?
[scoffs] Why do you even care?
It's their business.
If they wanna hate each other forever,
so what?
[Rory] Maybe you lack a heart, Valentina,
but the rest of us feel this
little emotion called sympathy for Ava.
You mean Sophia.
You too, Layla?
Am I the only one on team Ava here?
It's just Sophia believes
she was really talking to her dad somehow.
Not that I believe she was,
but what matters is she does.
Yeah. And that's kinda
tough to get over, Rory.
-Class, focus.
-[River neighs]
These unicorns will not groom themselves.
-[bell chimes]
All right, riders. Class dismissed.
Anyone wanna come gather flowers
to make more sparkle spray?
I've got a new recipe idea
I'm dying to try out.
Hint, it's purple. [giggles]
I'd love to. Um
Only we already told Sophia
we'd go on a trail ride later.
I can gather flowers with you, Ava.
I'm great at that.
No, no, that's fine.
A trail ride sounds totally fun.
Room for two more?
I promise if you get in trouble,
I'll just assume you're on another
important secret mission and not help.
Ava, I need space.
Don't worry. She'll come around.
If it makes you feel better,
I'm purely team
"watch how this plays out
from a distance and be entertained."
-[Valentina] You're welcome.
I don't think it's personal.
I mean, not really. When we were raiding
the kitchen last night,
Sophia just seemed more down about her dad
than angry at you.
Great. I messed up things with her dad,
and she went on a snack raid
without me? [cries]
Right. So, huh, trail ride?
Let's go do that. See ya later. Bye.
[Leaf neighs]
[magical music plays]
Thanks, Leaf.
[Leaf whinnies]
It'll be okay. If Sophia needs space,
then that's what she'll get.
[gentle music plays]
[Ash laughs]
Oh! Ooh!
[Crimsette] Whoa! [groans]
I hate being this close to the academy.
Everything's so cute.
[Ravenzella] Then I suppose
I should thank you.
You're both sacrificing so much
to help me get my grim magic back.
Oh, uh, it it's nothing, my queen.
I'm more than happy to do anything
you need, no matter how cute it is.
Yeah. Just tell us where to go.
You are to gain access to Unicorn Academy
and retrieve the grimstone
those girls took from the temple.
You want us to go into the school?
Yes, Ash.
That is what I said.
Now, go get that grimstone.
[Ash gasps]
But feel free to dispose of the girls
on the way.
-We won't let you down, Your Majesticness.
-[Ravenzella] See that you don't.
Come back with my prize,
or don't come back at all.
[sinister music plays]
[music fades]
[Sophia laughs] Of course.
-Giving her space.
-You're lucky your dorm is so boring.
The drama was fun at first,
but I'm so sick of Sophia and Ava
[Ava] Hey, gang.
Can I sit with you? I saw these incredible
heart-shaped leaves the other day.
-I'm dying to talk to someone about them.
-Stop. Don't care. Why are you here?
Oh, I just thought
I'd change things up a bit,
spend some time with my other roommate.
I'm your dorm mate.
As in there's usually a wall between us.
Speaking of dorms, Jacinta, Delia,
you're in Ruby Dorm, right?
What's that like? Any cool
Ruby-based slang I should know about?
No. But we do have
these super cute accent pillows. [giggles]
I love pillows. Tell me everything.
You sure you don't wanna sit with Sophia
and the rest of the sparkle squad?
Because I think
it would be great if you did.
No. I wanna spend time with you. Don't you
think it's weird we're dorm mates
and we don't know
anything about each other?
No, because of the wall.
Listen, you and Sophia need to hurry up
and get over whatever weirdness this is
and stop dragging the rest of us
into your drama.
Drama? No. This is just
a little misunderstanding between pals.
She'll forgive me.
She just needs time and space
and secret snack runs without me.
And that's great, actually,
because it means I get more time with you.
[Valentina groans]
So, what should our group name be?
[Rory] Hmm.
Not that I was eavesdropping,
which I definitely was,
but it sounds like you need someone
with a brilliant, tactical mind
to help Ava and Sophia to make up
and get Ava out of your hair.
Me. Person is me. I'm talking about me.
[sighs] If it gets Petals McPouty Face
over there to leave me alone, I'm game.
Isn't it so funny?
I distinctly remember
someone saying earlier
What was it? Oh! "If they wanna, like,
hate each other forever, so what?"
-[Valentina gasps]
-Just joshing. Come on.
Let operation re-bestie commence.
We're not calling it that.
We're calling it that.
[flutterbunny sniffs]
[Rory and Valentina groan]
-[Rory] It's caught under your Ow!
-Ow! This better work.
Don't sweat it. My patented double-note
group hang to dupe hang has never failed.
Well, depending on your definition
of failure, I guess.
Oh! Here they come.
[gasps] Ooh!
Dessert picnic?
Uh, where is everybody? I thought
there was an emergency Sapphire meeting.
I guess we're the first ones here.
Um, do you wanna wait with me?
There are snacks. [giggles]
Oh, I see what this is. Come on, Wildstar.
We don't have time for a snacky setup.
[Wildstar whinnies]
Yeah. Who wants to eat cute
little fruit tarts with friends anyway?
She's not ready yet.
That's fine. I'll go find Valentina.
I wonder if she likes dessert.
Let's find out!
Ugh! How did you somehow
make this worse for me?
No worries. I got a million more schemes
for us to try.
[Crimsette panting]
I think the coast is clear.
Let's go find those brats.
Nice and easy.
I'm so glad you wanted to hang out,
Valentina. I knew you'd come around.
Yeah, that's me,
doing this completely voluntarily.
Honestly, I really needed this. Sophia
[Rory] Help! Help!
Oh no. Is that Rory?
It sounds like he's in trouble.
I'm coming, Rory!
[Crimsette] Sh.
-[Rory] Oh, won't someone help me?
-[Crimsette yelps]
-There's the piggytails girl.
-[groans] Watch what you're doing!
And she's got the grimstone on her.
Ugh, cutesy accessories. Bleuch.
So where's Rainbow Head?
Aren't those two always together?
[mysterious music plays]
-Hey! We've got to be stealthy.
I am not trying to get walloped
by any magic horsies today.
[Sophia] Rory! Are you okay?
Oh no. I'm doomed unless you can
somehow work together to help me.
-The world is growing dim.
-[sighs] Just hold still, and I'll
Let me. Leaf can move the branches
without messing with those thorns.
Oh, 'cause I can't handle a branch
without you having to rescue me?
-What? No. I was only
-Getting in my way again.
Sure. Right.
Sophia does everything all alone.
She never needs help.
Ugh! It's not help
if it messes everything up more.
-Fine. Deal with it yourself.
-That's what I've been asking for!
Uh, thank you?
Does anything that comes out of your head
actually go the way you want it to?
Uh, 50-50, to be honest. But our odds
improve the more we try, right?
That's not how it works.
Luckily, I've got nothing but ideas.
It's time for plan G?
No, no, no, no, no, no. Enough plans.
This Sophia-Ava beef
needs to be squashed now.
-What if they really do need time?
-I don't have time.
Ava invited me
to a braiding party tonight. [shudders]
I'm done being her surrogate bestie.
If you can't fix it, I will.
Wow! Luminesce gems even glow underwater.
[sighs] So many amazing magic gems
on this island
just waiting to be thoroughly studied.
[Glacier whinnies]
Hey, maybe we could go
look for some more, huh, Sophia?
[huffs] It's like Ava
doesn't even realize what she did.
My dad was right there,
a and then he wasn't.
Does she seriously not get
how important that was to me?
Oh, uh, maybe?
What was that?
[Wildstar neighs]
[suspenseful music plays]
[Crimsette strains]
So much stuff everywhere.
How about some flying space?
[gasps] Sh sh she's coming out.
[groans] What are you doing?
Disguising myself, duh.
-I'm a pretty unicorn.
-Just get ready to grab her.
[gasps] Here she comes.
Everyone okay out here?
[suspenseful music plays]
[Ash chuckles]
Wait! [gasps]
She doesn't have a bracelet.
She's not wearing it.
Quick, hide.
[suspenseful music continues]
Huh. Guess it was nothing.
-[both sigh]
Come on, Leaf. Let's go.
[Leaf whinnies]
[gentle music plays]
[Leaf neighs]
[Wildstar snorts]
[Wildstar snorts and neighs]
[Wildstar snorts and squeals]
All right. Fine.
[gentle music plays]
[Leaf whinnies]
Look, I don't want things
to be weird between us anymore.
I really am sorry
that I messed up things with your vision,
but I don't know how to make things right.
-Can't you just talk to me?
-It wasn't just a vision to me.
I don't care whether you believe me.
That was my dad.
I got to see him after all these years,
and it might be the last time I ever will.
-I don't know if there's more to say now.
-There has to be.
If we just talked,
I know we could get over this.
Get over this? Right.
I should just get over
never seeing my dad again?!
[melancholy music plays]
You know, I'm not
the only one who messed up.
If you'd told me where you were going
instead of running off alone again,
none of this would've happened.
If you wanna be mad forever, fine.
But you're being a bad friend too!
Their friendship seemed so strong.
Yeah, Flower Girl's right, if you ask me.
Rainbow Head is being a jerk.
Yeah. Wait.
What are we doing hanging around?
If they're fighting,
let's search the dorms for the grimstone.
[Ash groans]
-[Ava cries]
-Whoa, whoa, you don't have to cry.
[cries] This is just
how my body processes anger.
You've been sneaking around,
breaking promises,
throwing yourself into danger,
and not once have you stopped
to think about how that makes me feel.
How scared I get
knowing you're out there alone,
maybe hurt or worse.
I'm supposed to be your best friend.
You should have been open with me
so I could've helped you
instead of holding you back.
And I'm ready for my apology
whenever you're ready.
[scoffs] You think I'm going to apologize?
It's your turn.
-Guys, check it out.
Oh, uh
Isn't this the stone you found
in the temple? The one in your bracelets.
-Uh, yeah.
-[Layla] I knew it!
Look. It's called the grimstone.
It's a special gem that can attract
and absorb grim magic.
Quick, give me your bracelets.
If we put the pieces back together,
maybe it could absorb
all the grim magic that's out there.
[both] Um
We don't actually have
the bracelets right now.
Well, where are they?
[tense music plays]
Bingo! [laughs]
[Ash strains]
[Ash grunts]
[Ash groans]
Feel free to pull yourself together
whenever you're ready.
Get in here and keep watch.
[tense music continues]
[Crimsette] Ugh, too much cute.
[Crimsette gasps]
Got ya!
That was too easy.
Ava, if you think I'm going
to your braiding party,
you've got another thing coming. [gasps]
[tense music continues]
[chuckles awkwardly]
Uh, I'll, um, uh, come back.
Crimsette, someone's here.
[Valentina screams]
[Cinder roars]
[dramatic music plays]
[unicorns neigh]
[tense music plays]
Isabel, I didn't say Ava was 100% right.
-I was just saying
-That you think I'm wrong?
I would like this conversation to end.
[Valentina] Somebody! Help!
[sighs] Wait. That was Valentina.
Sounds like she's in trouble.
Somebody help me already!
[Cinder roars]
[tense music continues]
Valentina, we already tried
the fake danger plan,
and it was a total bust, remember?
I mean, props on the use of, well, props,
but your acting could use a little work.
[yells] No, you idiot.
It was Ravenzella's creeper minions.
They took
your corny little friendship bracelets.
-They're getting away!
-[both gasp]
[suspenseful music plays]
[cackles] Oh, hey.
Thanks for leaving them in your room.
Yeah. Made our job a lot easier.
[Wildstar neighs]
Go. I'll help Valentina.
[dramatic music plays]
Don't let them escape with those.
[unicorns neigh]
[dramatic music continues]
-[unicorns neigh]
-[Ava] Whoa!
-Dude, careful.
-Tell them that.
Uh, hey! We're all going to
the same place. It's not a race, you know.
[dramatic music continues]
-There they are!
-[Crimsette] Agh!
We'll never outrun them with all
their stupid legs. Ash, you keep 'em busy.
[Ash] Right. [grunts]
[dramatic music continues]
-[Sophia] Now's our chance.
-[unicorn neighs]
[Wildstar squeals]
Ugh, watch out! What was that, Ava?
You said it was our chance.
-I meant our chance.
-Look out!
[dramatic music continues]
[tense music plays]
[dramatic music plays]
[Sophia] Isabel!
-I've got this.
-Leave it to me.
[dramatic music continues]
[unicorns neigh]
-Look what you did.
-How is this my fault?
Enough! The two of you are benched.
The rest of us will handle this.
[unicorns neigh]
[wind howls]
[all yell]
[all cough]
Jeez, they're really falling apart.
Huh? You actually stopped the riders?
They kinda stopped themselves.
-[Sophia groans]
-[Wildstar neighs]
[Rory groans]
[Storm neighs]
-Maybe we need a plan.
-The plan is to catch them.
So stop getting in my way for once!
[Leaf whinnies]
[dramatic music plays]
-You don't always know best, you know.
[dramatic music continues]
[Isabel] Come on.
[dramatic music continues]
-[unicorns neigh]
So we meet again, unicorn riders.
[Ravenzella cackles]
