Tino engages in some conversation with Sunset Shimmer but gets a fright when he sees Tiffany on one of the arcade screens with the caption "You paused me?" Tiffany, through the monitors in the arcade, expresses her distaste for Sunset Shimmer and that wants to get rid of her. After making an awkward excuse, Tino flees to Twilight and the others, who have been watching their date, and tells them that Tiffany has somehow returned and is stalking him.

Tiffany then blocks Tino, Lor, Carver, Tish, Twilight, Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Sunset Shimmer from the exit before turning some nearby skee-ball games into canons that shoot balls at them, causing them to take cover behind an arcade machine.

As Tiffany is about to kill Sunset Shimmer, but she was interrupted when Tino lures Tiffany into the kitchen away from Sunset Shimmer.
