Trixie Lulamoon, After her humilliation of losing a Magical Sword Duel against Twilight Sparkle, and banished to the Everfree Forest, she gets revenge on her and teams up with Iron Will. But, Twilight Sparkle has to do drastic measures over the grave situation that Ponyville and the whole land of Equestria might be under siege by Trixie herself, and takes Applejack and Big Macintosh as hostages.
