This is where the Emperor tells the story of the diamond and where our heroes go after Ernie and his men in Equinelantis: The Lost Equestrian Kingdom.
[back on the surface Horick's men load the king into a metal crate]
Horick: Men, tell those people to get back!
Men: You heard him. Get back!
[The men then loads the crate onto one of the trucks]
Thomas: So, this is how goes? Well, fine. You win, you're wiping out an entire city all for money.
Horick: Afraid so.
Ahuizotl: We're ready!
Horick: Yeah, yeah, just give me a minute. I feel like I'm missing something. What was it? Oh, yeah!
[then he punches Celestia and Luna]
Yuna: Mama! [runs up to Luna]
General Horick: We're wasting time. Let's go.
Princess Luna: Wait! Why are you doing this?
General Horick: Because my master told me too.
Princess Luna: Who?
General Horick: Darth Raygar.
Princess Luna: [gasps]
Princess Celestia: All of this because our own enemy want's to have our father?!
General Horick: Not quite. He just wants to use him, and drain his power to become more powerful than him. Thanks for taking me here!
[but as he turns, a blaster bolt hits his shoulder]
Horick: ARGH! (shoots back around) What the?!
Figge: (holding his blaster rifle) We're not letting you get away like this!
Horick: Is that a challenge?
Figge: You bet it is!
Horick: Fine. (ignites his Lightsaber)
[Figge then ignites his own and charges as the 2 clash into a blade lock]
Horick: You really are a bug in the system.
Figge: Let's go, becky!
[the 2 continue clashing sabers as Figge manages to slash Horick's shoulder but Horick is proving to be a tough case for Figge as they duel it out but then Figge kicks Horick in the jaw, which then makes Horick let go of his saber but before Figge can make a strike, Horick blasts him with Force Lightning sending him to the ground and hurtling at the team]
Horick: Now, let's get going! (hops into a truck and drives off)
[the villains then all drive away and across the bridge]
Yuna: No, we can't let them do this!
Sharon: [stops her] No, wait a minute!
Horick: [blows up the bridge]
Sunrise: Well, that went well.
Yuna: We can't let them escape like this! We need to stop them!
General Dedrich: Guys! Report to the throne room!
[in the throneroom, the medics are doing all they can with the emperor]
Princess Celestia: Well, how is he?
Medman: Not so good. Internal bleeding.
Scalpel: Not much more we can do.
Yuna: You mean he'll die?
Medman: Fraid so, little one.
General Dedrich: That damn griffon gave him quite a hard beatin', almost like how the Nazis did to Jews back in 43'.
Princess Luna: Grandpa?
Emperor Lunarlight: Where's my son?
Princess Celestia: He's.. he's.
Emperor Lunarlight: He has been chosen, like his mother, before him.
Emperor Lunarlight: In times of danger. The diamond will choose a host, one of royal blood. To protect itself, and it's people. It will except no other.
Twilight: Wait a minute, so this thing is alive?
Emperor Lunarlight: Yes, the diamond thrives on the collected emotions of all who came before us. In return it provides power and protection. As it grew, it developed a consciousness of it's own. And not only that, the diamond is connected to the Force.
Sharon: You mean to say it's Force Sensitive?
Emperor Lunarlight: In a way. It how many Jedi and some Je'Daii whom lived in this city were able to have fast training, the diamond gave them powerful meditation and connection with the Force. In my arrogance, I thought to the use the diamond for war, but it's power was too great to control, which lead to our destruction.
Thomas: So that's why you hid it under the castle. To keep the same thing from happening again.
Emperor Lunarlight: Yes. And keep Solar Flare from suffering the same fate as Moonbeam.
Yuna: Wait, what's gonna happen to grandpa?
Emperor Lunarlight: If he stay bonded with the diamond, he'll be lost to it forever. The love of him, my grandchildren, and my new family members is all I have left. My burden would've gone to Solar Flare, but now it falls to you.
Princess Celestia: Us?
Emperor Lunarlight: [nods his head] But I'm also gonna transfer my magic into Thomas.
Thomas: Transfer your magic to me? But I'm not an alicorn.
Emperor Lunarlight: Yes, but you're a Train-Prime. Your Matrix, in your chest, has the power to transfer magic into the spark of Train-Primes. And only it, can remove it.
Percy: Not even Tirek? When he still had Megatrain's arc?
Emperor Lunarlight: No, and not even Megatrain himself, or anyone else that powerful, can.
Thomas: But I.. I..
Emperor Lunarlight: Take it Thomas, you need my magic more than me. You need the strength.
Thomas: [sighs] Alright, [opens his chest] I'll do it.
Emperor Lunarlight: [transfers his magic into Thomas' chest]
Jolteon: That is awesome.
Emperor Lunarlight: You must take good care of it Thomas. [then gives his diamond necklace to his grandchildren] Return the diamond, save my son and my kingdom. I love you 2, so much. [passes away]
[the guards all bow down in sorrow as Emperor Lunarlight's body then fades away, becoming one with the Force.]
Princess Luna: Oh grandpa, [tears up] [starts silently weeping]
Hiro: I'm sorry Luna.
Barret Barricade: [puts a comforting arm on Celestia]
Princess Celestia: I was such a fool to trust Horick, maybe I'm not cut out to be a Princess.
Princess Celestia: I'm sorry, Sharon. But I've made so many mistakes in my life.
Sunlight: Mommy, what are you talking about?
Princess Celestia: Let's recap: First, when Twilight tried to warn me of the Changling Queen impersonating my niece, I not only refuse to believe her, I let her own brother kick her out of the wedding and ultimately turn my back on her. Then when Tirek attacked Equestria, I foolishly send Discord to capture him only for him to betray us. And adding salt to the wound I take a coward's move and have Luna, Cadance, I transfer our magic to Twilight, leaving us defenseless to Tirek whom of which throws us in that horrid place we call a prison! And now I foolishly let Horick, a Sith Lord to come with us on this expedition. Only for him to murder Grandfather and capture father and working for Darth Raygar. And now he has the diamond and is attempting to escape with it! Am I the only one who's crazy?! HAVE I LEFT ANYTHING OUT!?!
Barret Barricade: Of course you haven't!
Princess Celestia: Thank you. But, (takes off her crown and looks at it) if I can't make wise choices, then I'm not a true princess. (Drops her crown on the ground)
Barret Barricade: (picks up the crown) No, you may of made some foolish choices, in the past but this is the future, for the loud, crying of! Look, I know you made some dumb decisions before, honey. I'm sorry. But please don't let this kingdom die. If Solar Flare was in your position, he would do the same for you.
[After a moment Celestia looks at her crown and then takes it and puts it on]
Princess Celestia: Your right! I may have made some dumb decisions, but I'm not letting our father get away! I am the Princess of the Sun, and I say we will go after and save our father, and destroy Horick!
Peter: But how will you do that?
Princess Luna: Follow us.
[the 2 get up and start walking to the city limits]
Blythe Baxter: Princess, where you going?
Princess Celestia: We're getting our father back.
Sandy Cheeks: That's crazy talk!
Sharon: No, it isn't! We've came this far! We can still save him!
Sunlight: What? How?
Edd: We might have some perfect way of getting there.
[He leads them to one of the dragon ships]
Princess Luna: What are these things?
Mucker: A Dragonar, your father showed us.
Edd: I need the necklace for a moment. [Luna hands him it] Thank you, watch this. [he gets on and starts the ship]
Maud Pie: Wow, I'm impressed.
Zeb: Now that's my kind of ride.
Edd: And it's safe. All you have to do is..
Pepper Clark: Yeah, yeah. We get it.
Edd: No wait!
[Pepper Clark hits the pad too hard and the ship then flies backward into a wall and stops]
Edd: Gently, gently.
Spongebob: Hey Double-D, is there one that looks like a drake?
Soldier Equine: How is this done?
Edd: Use the diamond necklace. "Turn diamond quarter to the right and then reverse motion, keep your hand or hoof on the pad."
[Celestia and Luna then start up a dragon ship of their own, as many of the equine soldiers do the same thing]
Uray: While they use those dragon ships, we might have something that the rest of you that are more simpler.
[he then activates a teleportation ray and our heroes' planes appear]
Thomas: Alright, our planes!
Brian: Hey Ash, how about you guys send out your Pokémon?
Ash: Good idea.
[Ash and his friends sent out their Pokemon]
Optimus: We need more help. [opens a space bridge]
[The Dinobots come out]
Grimlock: [transforms into his T-Rex mode]
Princess Celestia: Alright, we're gonna save our father and save Equinelantis, or die trying!
Princess Luna: Now let's do it!
[They took off]
[citizens cheer for them as they fly above]
[The villains blows up the top]
Horick: I love it when I win.
[our heroes then fly into the cave]
