A great view of the train station from the library.
Twilight is worried about the noises coming from the library.
Come on Twilight. We can't miss that train!
Rainbow Dash, telling her friends about the let down in Cloudsdale.
I'm sure we have nothing to worry about.
Convincing your friends from a distant height isn't as overwhelming as it should be.
Didn't Cloudsdale host the Equestrian Games?
Cloudsdale should've hosted the games!
Filly Rainbow Dash with a possible relative.
First look of Rainbow Dash's family ever!
She remembers the day so well.
Look ponies, we need to do this right!
You know the plan, right Rainbow Dash?
You know the plan also, right Pinkie Pie?
Twilight is serious about this!
What? I was just answering Twilight's question.
The train heading for the Crystal Empire.
The pony gang in good spirits.
Twilight has some doubts.
One more time, from the top!
"I think that was perfect."
Applejack cannot emphasize enough.
Come on girls, we need this to be perfect.
A horse riding a horse. Now this is truly a sight to behold.
Rarity looks cute sitting down.
The Mane 6 practicing their cheer.
The Mane 6 thrown off guard
Oh Fluttershy, why you stealing Twilight's cutie mark?
After the train stop, they all fall down
Ah hate getting to the bottom of things.
The Crystal Empire, at last we have arrived.
Crystal ponies cleaning up the town.
The Mane 6 strolling through town.
The Crystal Heart, given some extra care.
Crystal fillies happily running down the street
You're making things worse, Rainbow Dash.
Don't cry crystal filly... Awww... Please Dashie! Let her.
Girls, can we focus on the task at hand?
The Mane 6 aren't paying attention to the mission.
Picked up by Twilight's magic.
Awwww! Don't you want to hug them?
The girls finally made it here.
Sunshine sunshine chant again, how cute.
Rarity walking through the spa.
Move aside as I admire the scenery.
Cadance showing Rarity the spa.
Princess Cadance pointing out the mud bath.
Crystal pony emerging from the mud bath
Pinkie Pie swinging by the main ponies and Cadance.
Sorry, what? I wasn't listening.
She was never seen or heard from again.
Pinkie! You shouldn't do that!
What's with Cadance's evil look?
Inhale, exhale. That will help relieve the stress.
Wide-eyed beauty! Dang, another cardiac arrest is coming!
Crown in the air, is so the fashion today.
The messenger has some important news.
Princess Cadance and Crystal Ponies
No one else has learned how to do the headdress?
Everypony having a look at the big list.
Rarity entering some uncharted territory.
"I will give it everything I got!"
Don't worry, everything will be alright.
That's a lot of instructions.
Princess Cadance hears some bad news.
"What!? You couldn't have told her that news first!? That's fifteen minutes from now!"
Reading the instructions.
We are off to go find the games inspector.
Going to the train station.
"Take the pudding out to thaw before you eat it, or you'll break a tooth!"
Another pony from Ponyville.
Here happens to be a pony just arriving at the train station carrying a flower-patterned suitcase.
Aren't those Rarity's glasses?
Fluttershy struggles with the luggage.
Entering the Crystal Empire.
Pinkie and Ms. Peachbottom bouncing
Definitely not happy with the "welcome."
What kind of manestyle involves a Power Drill?!
Meanwhile, back at the spa...
Cadance's manestyle is very complicated.
She's having a mad scientist moment
...only to find out that cheaters never prosper.
"Step twelve was optional."
Ummm...... how do you look?
Let's just say she won't be going to like this...
A shot of the Crystal Empire.
Loving the shiny Crystal castle at first...
...before recalling her claustrophobic fears!
"The pleasure is all mine."
"Two, four, six, eight! Name a place that's really great!"
"One, two, three, four! Keeps you coming back for more!"
"Two, seven, nine, three! The place that we all wanna be!"
"The Crystal Empire, that's the one!"
Party cannon finale, how appropriate.
Party cannon activate *Boom!*
Lyra taught her how to sit properly
The ponies exhausted after doing their cheer
Twilight, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash puzzled.
You must remain Zen and refocus your Chi.
Uh oh look out for the...
Aww too late. She seems mad.
Rarity's ear drop is just beyond the word cute.
"Princess Cadance isn't ready!"
Twilight really needs to see Cadance.
The sequence must not be interrupted!
"If there's to be any hope!"
She doesn't even know what she's talking about.
"You know... I love this sort of architecture. I-I-I detect a neo-Gothic inspiration in the design, yes?"
Where's Rarity when you need her?
Why so silly-rious? Oops, bad pun.
"Boingy boingy boingy!" Where are the Animaniacs when you need 'em?
Gals, is yer friend havin' a stroke? Should we do somethin'?
Pinkie approves of this smile.
Looking for a place to go.
Which door should I take?
Rainbow Dash leading the way
The Crystal Empire Stadium.
Shining Armor, the coach of the Crystal Pony team.
Shining blowing his whistle.
Twily speaking to her BBBFF.
"Come on, gang! Are we gonna gallop or are we gonna trot?!"
"Let's move, move, move!"
"Everything's gonna be okay."
"But she's the Equestria Games Inspector! Obviously she would be knocking over the athletes."
At least she didn´t knock them over.
You are supposed to jump over them not crash through them.
Who keeps flower pots on running obstacles anyway?
And it gets stuck in her head.
Ms. Harshwhinny getting splashed again, today's just not her day.
How can she run so fast while having a huge flower pot on her head?
Did I just hear somepony splat into the window?
It feels good to stretch my old bones.
Rainbow just struggling to bear with this.
Shining Armor introduces himself.
Yeah, let's look at this.
Shining Armor has quite a handsome laugh! ^_^
"Meet princes all the time."
You do realize he's a prince by marriage, don't you?
Hey Prince do you like me? I liked you so much. Why Cadance? Why not me?
She doesn't seem very happy.
"We got the wrong pony??!?!?!"
Twilight tries to calm down
The main ponies rushing towards the train station.
"Oh please, oh please, oh please." Pleads the orange mare.
"Except that there isn't!"
"Before Cadance finds out what a mess we've made of things."
"We split the Empire up into five sectors."
"Each of us search a sector."
What has made your visit so special?
Hey look at me! I glue my face to the glass! Fish face.
Rarity presenting Princess Cadance.
Ehhhhh...pretty much horrified.
They cannot believe what they are hearing
What was wrong with your welcome?
Twilight, you got some 'splaining to do!
Hold your horses Twilight.
"We gave our welcome to the wrong pony."
Princess Cadance understands the misunderstanding.
Rainbow explaining her optimism of helping the Crystal Empire host the games.
Ms. Peachbottom said what?
Twilight sees a good ending to all of this .
Princess Cadance very pleased with these kind ponies.
Waiting for the good ending.
Ms. Harshwhinny is impressed after hearing about Ms. Peachbottom's treatment.
The next games will be held in the Crystal Empire
That is the magic of the Crystal Heart bringing Equestrian Games spirit to everypony in the Empire.
