S3E1: "The Crystal Empire, Part 1"

Twilight’s on a mission. A mission from...Princess Celestia.

There is no assignment more honored and beloved by Twilight than the homework Princess Celestia gives. And when Celestia says it’s going to be a test - well we all know how Twily is about those. But this isn’t any ordinary test, and the Mane Six are about to discover one of the most isolated, spectacular places in all of Equestria - The Crystal Empire. The question is, are they ready to pony up and save it?
