Then after closer inspection, they find it's made of cotton candy! And soon down below, several popcorn pops out. And then it starts raining Chocolate milk. Then several Jackolopes race by with Deer legs. Then some of the grass turns to quilts. Which leaves the Vikings very confused. So Twilight tells Rainbow Dash to corral the clouds and Applejack to lasso them. Twilight instructs Fluttershy to coax the animals into eating the cotton candy clouds and popcorn instead of the apples. Not long after, Spike receives a letter from Princess Celestia, telling the gang to come to Canterlot immediately.

And then notices Cadance's stomach is plump and Chrysalis appears on one of the stained glass too. And she is surprised to see Cadance is pregnant again and licks her tongue at it. Astrid then tells her to bug off. Chrysalis just laughs and she and soon their children appeared on the glass bickering. Till they're stopped. And then they disappear. So the riders leave to find them. While Fluttershy decides to contact someone.

Human Fluttershy strokes her mane to calm her. While Fluttershy is pacing back and forth waiting for someone. Then it shows an orca whale and dolphin on train wheels, which the Vikings are amazed to see. And explain they their names, William C. Orca "Willy" and Dolphy. And Rainbow wonders why they're on tracks. But Willy replies they'll share that later, and for now they need to focus what's going on. Fluttershy then ask if they had their weapons to deal with them, and they do, Willy also shares the others will soon be joining them. So one of them has to sneak in the fortress and find out what's going on. Despite fearing Discord, Fluttershy volunteers to go first, Butterfly is about to follow her, but Fluttershy tells him to stay put. And she crawls into the vents.
Corruptions/Skyla's memory lost
Fluttershy the Jerk
After popping out from a vent inside, and starts giving herself a pep talk. Three butterflies like the ones on her cutie mark appear. Not wanting to be left alone, she decides to follow them. The butterflies turn out to be Discord in disguise. He tries to convince her that her friends think she is helpless and laugh at her behind her back. Fluttershy accepts the fact that she is helpless and that her friends are kind enough to understand. Again, Discord tries to corrupt her, and Fluttershy resists, saying that her friends want her to know of her flaws so she can improve on them. Frustrated, Discord gives up and hypnotizes her by simply prodding her head.
Applejack the Lair
Outside, everyone waits, but Applejack loses patience and decides to go check on Fluttershy, she tells Rodeo when she gives a call, come in. She then goes into the vents. As Applejack tries to navigate in the castle, she spots three apples, like the ones on her cutie mark, rolling away from her on the ground. She follows them to the edge of an apple orchard. Apples start falling off the trees, and start animating themselves; they taunt her, and tell her to look in a pool nearby. She does so, and sees a vision of the six friends arguing and agreeing to never speak to each other again. The camera pans up, showing Discord using puppet crosses to animate the apples. Applejack cannot accept the idea that she needs to lie to preserve her friendship with the other ponies, and Discord hypnotizes her, draining her of color. Almost immediately the orchard fades, and a corrupted Fluttershy.
Snoutlout the fearful
Outside, everyone is still waiting (the other cartoon engines have Joined them) Snoutlout can't wait anymore and goes to climb into the vents, Hookfang tries to stop him but is too late to grab him. After Snoutlout enters the castle, he starts search when he sees a sight. He follows it and ends up in a room with scary shape and sounds. He tries to stay strong but then Discord puts his hand on his back and Snoutlout is hypnotized to be afraid of everything.
Ruff and Tuff, super geniuses
Everyone continues to wait, but Butterfly, Rodeo, and Hookfang start to get worried for their owners, so while no one's looking Ruff and Tuff head inside. And see blackness, so they try to think of a way to get light, in which Discord hypnotizes them into thinking they're super geniuses.
Pinkie the grump
Soon enough Pinkie decides to go in and orders Sugarcube Crazia to stay put. But she stumbles upon a garden filled with balloons similar to those on her cutie mark. The balloons have smiling faces and are laughing. She giggles with the balloons until one of the balloons' strings trip her. She tumbles into a puddle of mud and stops laughing, but the balloons start jeering at her. Discord appears to Pinkie and tells her that the balloons, like her friends, are actually laughing at her, not with her. She initially denies it, but when Discord makes her friends' faces appear on the balloons, she sees that laughter can be cruel and hurtful. Discord hypnotizes her and turns her gray.
Then, Rarity is starting to get anxious, she tells Jewel to come in when she yells, "Ruby" and she heads inside. She then finds a brick wall. Embedded in it are three diamonds shaped like her cutie mark. Discord appears in the diamonds' reflections and tells Rarity it's her lucky day for finding the beautiful diamonds, "the one thing in Equestria that could rival [his] face for sheer beauty." He starts to hypnotize Rarity, but she resists and tries to walk away. However, she succumbs and runs back to the rock, losing her color as she chips away at the rock. She unearths what appears to be a truck full of silver.
Zoe Trent the Brute
Soon, Zoe is starting to get very worried since no one has come out yet. So she heads inside. And soon she shes what looks like Rarity and races for it, but slips on some soapy water, then hits a chair. She then stats complaining, Discord then appears and tells her that if she wants things to go her way, she needs to be very firm and stern. He then starts to hypnotize her to be a brute.
Penny Ling the Disrespectful
Penny Ling is now starting to get very worried and decides to go find out what is happening. After she heads inside she sees a shadow that looks like Fluttershy and follows it but the shadow is actually being puppeted by Princess Chaos, then Penny comes into a room. And then she sees a picture of herself. She then is corrupted by Disrespectfulness. And then the mirror transforms into Discord!
Mako.... Corruption Fail
Soon, everyone else decides to head inside, so Dolphy burst open the door and they start searching. And soon catches a scent of something and follows it, and finds a pair of wire cutters. When he picks it up, it does nothing! Discord then emerges from the shadows, shocked and then he tries to hypnotize Mako by touching his head, it almost works, but then it stops. He tries several more times but no matter what he tries, nothing is working on Mako. Which makes Discord's jaw drop. Mako then leaves, leaving a very shocked Discord standing.
Finding the corrupted beings/Skyla loses her memory
Mako reunites with the others and they continue searching (he even shares his brief encounter with Discord) and then see their corrupted friends. And see some of the others themselves. But then Skyla heads to find Discord. But as she searches, she is confronted by Chrysalis! Skyla is frightened by her mere sight then Chrysalis lifts her and touches her horn on her head and does something strange. Then Skyla starts to have no memory at all! Then Chrysalis leaves after she finishes, then Willy comes over and asks if she's alright, but to his surprise, Skyla's memory is gone!
Chaos is spreading/Mako's New talent

Cadance is now anger at Chrysalis and determines to get Skyla's memory back. Meanwhile, Mucker is trying to figure out a way to fix their corrupted friends, but finds nothing. Mako touches Shai-Shay and voices his thoughts. Mucker says that he expects words of doubt such as them from Shai-Shay, when Shai-Shay announces that they were in fact his. Mucker leans on Mako, mentally expressing his apparent failure. He realizes what's happening, and tests Mako's new-found skills. And then realizes that Discord did infact do something to Mako, he gave him the ability to read minds! They then conclude this might be the ticket to finding out how to fix their friends and restores Skyla's memory! They then race to tell the others as the episode ends.
