Speaker Text
The bells in Ever After start ringing, and the crowds are cheering for the Thronecoming parade to commence.
Female narrator: Welcome friends, to the world of Ever After High. Where today, we're telling the tale of a most special event: Thronecoming.
Male narrator: A school holiday where Ever After High presents the fairytale students at their best. It all starts with a Thronecoming parade...
Female narrator: And who can forget the big game, the Bookball Championship!
Female student: [Squealing.] Ahhh!
Daring Charming: Charm you later.
Girl students: Ahh... [Faints.]
Male narrator: ...Or, the Thronecoming dance―
Female narrator: ―Where a Thronecoming Queen and King will be crowned.
Male narrator: Cut to Ever After High, with Hunter and Ashlynn.

Ever After High does have a spellsworth of students, who fit that slipper...

Ashlynn Ella: [Giggling as she is offered shoes by Hunter.]

Ashlynn opens her locker and finds shoes falling out.

Dexter Charming: And this year, all the voting is gonna be on the MirrorNet! Me and Humphrey Dumpty are in charge of it.
Daring Charming: Let me save you some time, little bro. [Picks up Dexter's MirrorPad and drops it down.] I'm quite certain I'll be named Thronecoming King. After all, I am handsome.
Apple White: Apple walks by and approaches Raven.

Hey, Raven! [She waves to Raven.] I already voted online for Thronecoming Queen. [She taps on her MirrorPad.] And, I voted for you.

Raven Queen: Really? Why did you vote for me?
Apple White: I always win these things, [Puts hand on Raven's shoulder.] and well, you technically come from a long line of Queens.
Raven Queen: Thanks! I'm really glad that you're turning the page! I mean, I'm the daughter of the Evil Queen―and a Rebel―but...that doesn't mean I'm trouble.
Announcer: Raven Queen, please report to the Headmaster's office at once.

Raven sulks.

Fade to Raven in the Headmaster's office, still sulking. A clock around them is ticking loudly and the Headmaster and his secretary are waiting on Raven.
Milton Grimm: Can we get you something? Dragon-egg omelette?
Raven Queen: No, I'm good.
Milton Grimm: Ms. Trollsworth! One dragon-egg omelette! So, Ms. is your Thronecoming float going, hmm?
Raven Queen: It's going good.
Milton Grimm: Delightful, my dear! [Chuckling.]
In the background, Ms. Trollsworth is fetching a dragon-egg omelette by climbing its nest.
Raven Queen: Can I ask you something?
Milton Grimm: Of course!
Raven Queen: Why are you being nice to me? Ever since I didn't sign the Storybook of Legends on Legacy Day, I always thought that you, well...that you saw me as trouble.
Ms. Trollsworth finds a few dragon-eggs and carries them, however she falls off at the edge of the nest, causing Raven to look behind the Headmaster as she hears an odd scream.
Milton Grimm: [Chuckling.] You? A-a trouble maker? [Laughter.] Of course not! But, funny you should mention Legacy Day. As you know, Thronecoming is one of the few days a year the Storybook of Legends is removed from its protective case, and displayed for the public. That, a perfect time for you to reconsider, and sign in front of the whole world.
Raven Queen: I'm sorry, Headmaster, but I made my choice on Legacy Day. I wanna write my own destiny, not follow in the footsteps of my mother. Now, if there's nothing else, I'll be going.
Ms. Trollsworth: Would you like this boiled? [The dragon spews fire on her face.] ...or fried?
Milton Grimm: She doesn't understand. [He picks up an old photograph of him and his brother.] We must stay true to the stories...

Young Milton Grimm: [Panting.] Last one to touch the Heart Tree is a dodo egg! [Him and his brother run up the hill together.] Come on, little brother!
They both run up and touch the Heart Tree together.
Young Giles and Milton Grimm: [Laughter.]
Young Giles Grimm: We're always gonna be best friends, right Milton?
Young Milton Grimm: Yeah. Always.

Giles Grimm: Thronecoming at last... The key, the door is open!

Ashlynn and Briar are in their dorm, with Ashlynn selecting a pair of shoes and Briar sewing up a skirt.
Ashlynn Ella: You ready? I can't wait to finish my float! And I did it all without harming a single flower!
Briar Beauty: Harming a flower?
Ashlynn Ella: Hey, plants have feelings too, you know.
Briar Beauty: [Giggling.] You go ahead. I just need to sew up this skirt.
Ashlynn Ella: Okay, see you there!
Briar Beauty: Ow, my finger! Ah! [Yawning and snoring.]

Students everywhere are helping set up the gym for the Thronecoming dance preparation.
Earl Grey: [Squeaking.]
Madeline Hatter: [Giggling.]
Blondie Lockes: Ooh! Who wants pizza? [The O'Hair sisters jump down from the low-heightened balcony, with Cerise popping up from under the table.] I sampled a slice and it is just right!
Cerise Hood: Oh, meat lovers pizza. [Growls and takes the entire pizza box away.]
Holly O'Hair: Look! Our fairytale princes are talking strategy for the big game...don't you just love it when they act all heroic?
Dexter Charming: We're never gonna beat Beanstalk High at bookball!
Daring Charming: Oh, little brother. Don't be such a worrier! How tough can it be to beat a bunch of little beans, huh?
Hunter Huntsman: Beanstalk High is filled with giants, Daring. Not beans.
Daring Charming: Well, then we are in a lot of trouble, [Nudges Hunter with his elbow.] aren't we? [Chuckling.]
Sparrow Hood: [Singing and awkwardly dancing.] They're gonna kick our tails, yeah!!
Cerise Hood: Hey, guys. Y'know, I was thinking: maybe I'd try out for the bookball team. I'm wicked fast. [She offers pizza to the boys.]
Dexter Charming: Oh, well, that sounds good―
Sparrow Hood: [Singing.] But you're a girl, oh!
Cerise Hood: So? [Perks up.] What does that have to do with it?
Daring Charming: Sorry, Cerise. Damsels are for saving. Not playing fairytale-back. [He nearly takes a bite out of his pizza but Cerise swipes it away.]
Cerise Hood: [Growling.] Boys!

Tiny walks in.

Daring, Dexter, Hunter and Sparrow: Hi, Tiny.
Tiny: Guys! I think I know how we can win a game against the Giants! Huddle up!
Cerise Hood: [She growls and angrily throws her pizza box into the bin.]
Outside for float building, Raven is standing at Apple's float.
Raven Queen: Nice float Apple, it's totally off the page!
Apple White: Thanks, Raven! [Steps off ladder.] It's got the apple tree that you poison me from! Or, um, might poison me from, huh.
Raven Queen: [Raven looks a little annoyed.] Apple...
Apple White: Aww, it's okay, Raven. You'll come around - I just know it!
Raven Queen: "Come around"? I have tried to explain this to you every way I know how! I wanna write my own destiny. And to be honest―when it comes to this―I think you're being selfish. [Folds arms.]
Apple White: Wha...!
Students: [Gasping.]
Apple White: You-you think I'm...being selfish?
Raven Queen: All you care about is your own Happily Ever After.
Apple White: You know, [Picks up fruit basket.] because you didn't sign the book, all of our stories could go poof. We could all go poof!
Raven Queen: Yeah, but we didn't!
Apple White: ...Yet. [Sits off the edge of her float.] Raven, I don't want you to sign the book for me. [Jumps off.] I want you to sign it so that nothing bad happens to the people that I love. Including you! [She gives Raven an apple and turns her back to her.] If you ask me, you're the one who's being selfish. [Apple walks away.]

It's around evening time and Ashlynn returns from float-building. She looks around her dorm for Briar as to why she didn't attend.
Ashlynn Ella: [In a whispering tone.] Briar?
Briar Beauty: [Snoring.]
Ashlynn Ella: [Ashlynn turns on the light and shakes her friend's arm.] Briar!
Alarm clock: [Ashlynn uses Briar's alarm clock.] GET UP!!!!
Briar Beauty: [Gasp.] Oh no. [Jumps up.] How long have I been asleep?
Ashlynn Ella: Well, you missed float-building.
Briar Beauty: But that's one of the best parties of the year!
Ashlynn Ella: It's okay. It's not like―
Briar Beauty: No. It's not okay! [Stands up and paces around.] Is this what it's gonna be like when I sleep for a hundred years? I'm gonna miss out on all the fun, and my friends!
Ashlynn Ella: [She puts her hand on Briar's shoulder.] You always knew this was gonna happen; that you were going to be the next Sleeping Beauty.
Briar Beauty: I know! But now, it just feels...real.
Ashlynn Ella: Well, you haven't signed the Storybook of Legends yet. [She walks over to the windowsill.]
Briar Beauty: [Gasp.] Ashlynn!
Ashlynn Ella: Look, Briar, you wouldn't be the first person to question your destiny. I mean, I already signed and I kinda wish I hadn't. Who knows what's gonna happen to Hunter and me? [Briar stands next to Ashlynn.]
Briar Beauty: So, you're saying I shouldn't sign; I should...rebel?
Ashlynn Ella: I'm saying that you have choices. [Walks back.]

As Briar looks out her window, Raven does the same.
Raven Queen: [Rolls an apple around.] Did I make the wrong choice?
The apple drops from the windowsill by accident.
Bystander man: Hey! Who threw that!

The next morning, Baba Yaga is using her hut to guide the students to a special location in the forest.
Chicken hut: [Clucking.]
Baba Yaga: Very good. Haha, [Knocking.] that's far enough! Now, you're about to discover a most unique building here at school. It's called: Heritage Hall!
C.A. Cupid: Madam Yaga, where is it?
Baba Yaga: Well, you see... Heritage Hall is a magical structure!
Nearby, a clock strikes twelve and it shines a light off its trajectory. A building slowly appears from the light.

It only appears during Thronecoming!

Apple White: [Gasps in amazement.]
Madeline Hatter: Wow!
The students start walking in.
Apple White: [Gasp.]
Madeline Hatter: Whoa!
Apple White: Ooh...
Baba Yaga: Heritage Hall is dedicated to those who came before you: your parents―the alumni of Ever After High! Now, if everyone will gather around the Storybook of Legends, I'd like to tell you about your Thronecoming treasures.
In the background, the Headmaster's secretary replaces Raven's gift, a wand, with a small white coin. She signals the Headmaster in success.

When your parents were students, they were given the chance to leave gifts for any of their children who might attend this school.

Milton Grimm: [Coughs.] Uhm, yes! Let's get to it!
Students: Yay! [Giggling.]
Blondie Lockes: Ooh, running shoes! Those bears will never catch me now! Thanks, mom.

Cerise Hood: Sweet! A picnic basket with an electronic Mirror Lock! [She presses a button and it automatically makes a snack for her.]

Holly O'Hair: Hair brushes? We already have like a million of―
The hairbrushes come to life and start magically brushing the twins' hair.
Poppy O'Hair: Wicked!

Briar Beauty: Oh, a super-soft neck supporting pillow. [Unenthusiastically.] Great.

Cedar Wood: Glasses? I don't get it. Why would my dad...[Puts them on.] wait a splinter! I can't tell a lie, and neither can these glasses! They're revealer rays!
Duchess Swan: [Smugly looks at Cedar.] Whatever after. They probably don't even work.
Cedar Wood: Well, they're telling me the truth about your dress! Which is not a real Hans Christian Dior, like you've been telling everyone it is.
Duchess Swan: I-I... [Honking.]
Raven reaches inside her box and finds the gift Trollsworth replaced her original present with.
Madeline Hatter: What did you get, Raven?
Raven Queen: It's a coin! The Wishing Well?
The Headmaster smirks as his plan falls into place.

Raven Queen: What am I supposed to wish for? [Tosses the coin up and catches it.] Wait...I know. [Peeks in the well.] I wish to know, what happens to my friends if I don't sign the Storybook of Legends.

An orange smoke arises from the well and in the background, Trollsworth plays a fake recording which blends with the smoke as if it is real.

Dream sequence Apple White: The step-sisters! [Points up.] Run! [All the girls scream.]
Dream sequence C.A. Cupid: [Cupid falls down.] Ah! Oh!
Dream sequence step-librarians: [Cackling.]
Raven Queen: No! [She sprints back to Ever After High.]
Milton finds an old cave which him and his brother played in before.
Young Milton Grimm: Hahaha! Giles! Check it out, the Ogre's Cave.
Young Giles Grimm: Whoa. [Tugs his brother's arm.] We better get out of here.
Young Milton Grimm: Heh! Are you scared?
Young Giles Grimm: Uh, yeah...don't you remember the story father told us? No one has ever gotten into that cave and come out alive.
Young Milton Grimm: Oh, please. That's just a story. They don't all come true, you know.
Young Giles Grimm: Milton, no! [Giles reluctantly follows him.]
Out of his flashback, the Headmaster lets out a sigh.

At Ever After High, the boys are preparing for the Bookball Championship.
Hunter Huntsman: Okay Tiny, so what's the secret to beating the Giants from Beanstalk High?
Tiny: All Giants have a weakness: our little toes are really ticklish!
Dexter Charming: So like, this is enough right here?
Tiny: [Laughing.]
Daring Charming: Uh oh...
Tiny topples over.
Raven Queen: Guys, hey! Guys! [The boys around Raven attempt looking cool and start stretching. Have you seen Apple?
Hopper Croakington II: No, but hey! Wouldn't you rather hang out with the coolest dudes ever after?
Raven Queen: [Scowling.]
Hopper Croakington II: [Hopper turns into a frog.] Good luck on your adventure, fair maiden.

Cedar Wood: Lizzie. Do you have any fairy-fives? [A broad grin is spread on Cedar's face as she is using her revealer rays.]
Lizzie Hearts: NO. OFF WITH YOUR―wait. Wait a spell! [Points to Cedar.] Are those your revealer rays?
Things stay quiet for a moment, but Cedar finally snaps.
Cedar Wood: I wish I could just tell a lie!
Raven Queen: Hey! Have you seen Apple?
Poppy O'Hair: No...
Cedar Wood: No.
Holly O'Hair: I don't know.
Cedar Wood: Not me!
Raven Queen: Where is she?
A Royal Student Council meeting is being held and Cerise has a suggestion.
Cerise Hood: I'm just saying. We have vegetarian days in the castleteria, why not meat days?
Raven Queen: [Raven runs in straight to Apple.] Apple! There you are, finally!
Apple White: Raven, you'll have to wait your turn. I'm―
Raven Queen: I want to sign the Storybook of Legends!
Apple White: [Gasp.]
Madeline Hatter: [Gasp.]
Cerise Hood: [Gasp.]
Male student: Whoa.
Female student: [Gasp.]
Sparrow Hood: [Gasp.]
Troll guy: [Gasp.]
Knight: No way!
Legend: No way!
Apple White: Um, meeting adjourned.
Apple and Raven go to the Headmaster's office together.

Headmaster Grimm! You're never going to believe it! The best thing Ever After has happened!

Milton Grimm: [In an unconvincing tone.] Really? And what is that?
Raven Queen: *sighs* I want to sign the Storybook of Legends.
Apple White: Isn't that spelltastic! [She gives Raven a hug.]
Milton Grimm: It certainly is! Whatever changed your mind?
Raven Queen: Apple was right. I was being selfish. I don't want anything to happen to our friends.
Apple White: [Giggling.]
Milton Grimm: Well, I'm glad you finally see the story from our point of view! I shall make the arrangements. The Thronecoming parade will be seen by millions in the magical world! It'll be the perfect time to sign your destiny.
Raven Queen: [Tenses up.] Uh...millions?
Apple White: [Giggling.

Blondie is being broadcasted on her MirrorCast show, announcing Raven's new declaration.
Blondie Lockes: Can you believe it, fairytale fanatics? Raven Queen is gonna sign the Storybook of Legends! Why, this is the most epic thing since to happen since...since she didn't sign the Storybook! First up, Huntlynn!―That's my cute name for Hunter and Ashlynn...[Giggling.]
Ashlynn Ella: It's just, when Raven decided not to sign, we thought there was hope, for us.
Hunter Huntsman: Yeah! Wait, Raven's gonna sign?
Ashlynn Ella: Honey, you really need to read the Mirror Blogs. [Holds Hunter's hand.]
Madeline Hatter: Well, Raven convinced me. [Maddie is hanging from upside-down.] She doesn't want anything to happen to her best friends ever after. And what's the hatter with that?
Earl Grey: [Squeaking.]
Duchess Swan: Oh! [Jumps around on water.] This changes everything!
Cerise Hood: Eh, this doesn't change anything. [Carmine covers her eyes with his tail and eats Cerise's bacon ice cream.] Oh!
Dexter Charming: A-all I have to say is... [Raises his voice.] Only two more days to vote for Thronecoming Queen and King so get online and VOTE!
Briar Beauty: Me? Well, Raven signed the Storybook of Legends means we'll each play our part! [Gasp.] And I'll sleep...for a hundred years. [Shrugs.]

Female narrator: And so, as Thronecoming approached, the girls were getting their dresses fairest at the Fitting Ballroom.
Apple White: Can you believe it? Raven is going to sign!
Raven Queen: Huh.
Apple White: It's like my birthday and New Chapter Day, and True Hearts Day all wrapped into one! [A fairy tightens Apple's dress with a ribbon.] Ow! Ooh, a little tight, don't you think? Oh, anyway, all wrapped into one beautiful present!
Briar Beauty: [Scowls.] WE GET IT!
Blondie, Duchess and Raven: [All gasp.]
Duchess Swan: Whoa, what's ruffled your feathers?
Briar Beauty: It's's not as easy as you make it sound, Apple.
Apple White: What's not?
Briar Beauty: Following our destinies. I mean, you really think I wanna sleep for a hundred years?
Raven Queen: Well, you are gonna miss out on all the great parties.
Briar Beauty: Is that how you guys see me? Just a party girl? I don't wanna sleep 'cause I'm gonna lose all my friends. And I'm gonna be do you think that feels?
Raven Queen: I've never thought about that.
Briar Beauty: Well, I have. And now that you're gonna sign... [Opens curtains and steps in a room by herself.] Well, changes everything.
Apple White: But Briar, we all have our part to play. [Apple walks in behind Briar.]
Briar Beauty: Easy for you to say, Apple. You get poisoned for what, like a week?
Blondie, Cupid, Duchess and Raven: [From behind the curtain.] Ooh...
Apple White: Briar, I'm sorry you're upset, but―
Briar Beauty: I'm happy for you, Apple. I'm happy that Raven is gonna sign. But now, I don't think I want to. [She leaves.]

Continuing from Milton's previous flashback, the brothers proceed in entering the Ogre's Cave and Milton lights a match.
Young Giles Grimm: Whoa. [Giles accidentally touches slime.] Milton? [Giles runs up to his brother.] Milton. What if the Ogre catches us?
Young Milton Grimm: It's just a story! [A gust of wind blows out their match.] There's no such thing as a―
Cave: [Loud roaring.]
Young Milton Grimm: [Milton runs as fast as he can out of the cave, leaving his brother behind.] Huh...[Gasp.] Giles?
Cave: [Roaring.]
Young Milton Grimm: GILES!

Outside in Book End, the village is celebrating.
Child: [Crying.]
Lance Charming: Lance Charming here with Ever Action News: the first floats are coming down the street, and don't they look spellbinding!
Crowd: [Cheering.]
Lance Charming: Now don't forget, folks: Headmaster Milton Grimm has promised a fairy special surprise at the end of the parade route. Remember to tune in later today and find out what it is! Reporting at the scene in Book End, I'm Lance Charming. [Sulkily.] That's a wrap.

It is around sundown and everyone has gathered to see Raven sign.
Milton Grimm:

And so, as many of you remember, there was a minor―hmm―Chapter brink at Legacy Day, but, I am happy to report that that has now been resolved; Raven Queen is going to sign the Storybook of Legends!

Crowd: [Cheering.]
Cedar Wood: Huh? [Looks through her revealer rays which reveals that the book is a fake.] There can't be! Somebody is not telling the truth! [Marches up to Raven.]
Raven Queen: My name is Raven Queen...
Cedar Wood: [From the audience.] Raven! Raven!!
Raven Queen: ...and I―
Cedar Wood: [From the staircase.] Raven...Raven.
Milton Grimm: Ms. Wood, split! [Gestures her to leave.]
Cedar Wood: Ah. [Walks past the Headmaster.] Raven! That's not the real Storybook of Legends! That's a fake!
Raven Queen: [Gasp.]
Apple White: [Gasp.]
Milton Grimm: Agh, calm down...Thronecoming pranks are a traditional occurrence...
Cedar Wood: This isn't a prank! My revealer rays only tell the truth, [Holds book up.] and that is not the real Storybook of Legends.
Milton Grimm: [Chuckling.] Calm down! [Takes book out of Cedar's hands and replaces it back to its pedestal.] This has gone far enough! Ms. Queen, [Opens up the book to her page.] it is time for you to sign the book and seal your destiny.
Raven Queen: I'm sorry, but if Cedar says the book is fake, then it is.
Apple White: Raven, no!
Milton Grimm: I guess I should have known better than to trust you, Raven Queen! [He snatches the quill out of her hand.] You probably did all this just to make me look foolish!
Raven Queen: No! I wanna sign, I really do, but...
Milton Grimm: This isn't the end.
Raven Queen: [Gasp.]

Later at night, it is stormy and the Headmaster is in his office conversing with the Evil Queen.
Milton Grimm: They know...they know you switched them! I ask you again, where did you hide the real Storybook of Legends?! [Throws the book down.]
Mirror: [Ominous cackling.]
Milton becomes enraged and there is a lightning flash outside.
Ashlynn and Briar are in their dorm getting ready for bed.
Ashlynn Ella: Okay, Thronecoming? Totally off on the wrong slipper!
Briar Beauty: Well, since the book is a fake, at least Raven can't sign and I don't have to decide what I'm gonna do. [She claps her hands to signal the light fairy to turn off.]
Both of them try to be sound sleeping, but Ashlynn jolts up.
Ashlynn Ella: Unless...
Briar Beauty: [She claps her hands once more to turn on the light.] Unless what?
Ashlynn Ella: Unless Raven decides to go looking for the real Storybook of Legends.
Briar Beauty: She would do that. [She is slightly worried.] Would she?

Raven Queen: [Knocking.] Maddie, you have to help is find the real book!
Kitty Cheshire: [Snoring.] Meow.
Apple White: Hey, um, maybe we should talk outside so Kitty doesn't hear.
Madeline Hatter: Don't worry - when she's taking a catnap, nothing wakes her up. [Winks.]
Raven Queen: So, you'll help?
Madeline Hatter: Of course. Raven's totally got me seeing the royal side of things, and I can't say no to her! You are a good cup of tea! If there's one person who knows everything that goes on in this school, [Throws her tea and saucer away.] it's the person that lives under this school! [She lowers her head onto the floor and giggles.]

The three of them continuously go down several staircases to find the person Maddie's been talking about.
Apple, Madeline, and Raven: [Giggling.]
Apple White: So, who exactly are we looking for? [The three of them see a silhouette of something carrying a pile of books.]
Giles Grimm: [He appears.] From the nest to the sea comes the bird made of free to seek truth, [He puts his books down.] beauty and glee!
Madeline Hatter: It's hat-tastic to see you too, Giles! [Tips her hat.]
Apple White: [Gasp.] Giles Grimm?
Raven Queen: The one and only.
Apple White: [She holds out a picture of Milton and Giles when they were younger.] I-I knew the Headmaster had a brother, but...
Giles Grimm: Feathers and friends, together alone. [He holds out his hand.]
Madeline Hatter: He says hi.
Apple White: [She attempts shaking his hand but their hands awkwardly avoid each other until Giles uses both hands. Giles takes the picture out of her hands.] What's he doing down here?
Raven Queen: Well, he only speaks Riddlish. So, we don't really know.
Madeline Hatter: But, if the real Storybook of Legends is here, abso-tively point us in the right direction!
Giles Grimm: Pages and chapters and bookmarks are bound, but where can freedom truly be found?
Madeline Hatter: He's talking about the book! I better write this down. [Maddie reaches from behind her.] Hold please! [She gets out a hat and Raven hold it, rummaging and pulling out random things.] I know there's some parchment in here somewhere.

Giles forlornly looks down at the picture and a flashback occurs.
Young Milton Grimm: [Panting.] Father! Father! [Barges in through his house doors.]
Father Grimm: Milton, what is it?
Young Milton Grimm: It's Giles. I dared him to go into the Ogre's Cave.
Father Grimm: [Crouches down.] But I told you the story.
Young Milton Grimm: I'm sorry. [His father runs off as he buries his face in his hands.]I'm sorry...

Back in reality, Madeline finally takes out parchment.
Madeline Hatter: Found it!

Male narrator: And so, the big day finally arrived: the Thronecoming Bookball Championship!
Female narrator: Big day? No. The big day is the Thronecoming dance.
Male narrator: Ah, bookball game.
Female narrator: Thronecoming dance!
Madeline Hatter: Whoo-de-li-too-dee-doo! The game is about to start. [Angrily sips on her drink.]
Male narrator: I...forgot she could hear us.
Coach Gingerbreadman: Okay, now these Giants from Beanstalk High, they are tough. However―
Daring Charming: Um, Coach Gingerbreadman, sorry to interrupt but it's all good. We got a plan.
Hunter Huntsman: Hex yeah we do! Tiny told us that all Giants have a weak spot on their little toes!
Coach Gingerbreadman: True, but that's why the other team is wearing toe protectors! [Points.]
Sparrow Hood: I'll. Stay. On. The. Bench, [Singing.] yeahhhhhhh!
Raven Queen: [Glances around.] Okay, now is the perfect time to go looking for the book.
Madeline Hatter: Wait a spell, let's grab Cedar! [Points to Cedar then to her eyes.] Those truth-telling glasses will let us know if we find the real dealio.
Cedar Wood: [Raven taps on Cedar's shoulder.] Huh?
Ashlynn Ella: Where are they going?
Briar Beauty: [Takes her eyes off her phone.] I don't know. [She grabs Ashlynn's arm and they follow them.]
Hunter starts running but is intercepted by a giant's foot.
Hunter Huntsman: Oh... [Another one hits him.]
Crowd: [The crowd is in awe.]
The giant easily walks over and drops the bookball down on the goal and does a finger dance.
Hunter Huntsman: Major. Fairy. Fail. [Shrugs.]
Giants: Yay! Giants! Giants! Giants! Giants! Giants... [There are a few lightning flashes.]

The four girls visit Heritage Hall.
Raven Queen: So, you think the real Storybook of Legends is hidden in here?
Madeline Hatter: This is where the clue leads: [Reading.] 'where the stories of the past come alive, revive, and thrive'! See anything, Cedar?
Cedar Wood: [Cedar walks in and checks her glasses.] Hmm. Nope, just a...wait a splinter! I think the Storybook of Legends is in the Storybook of Legends! [Gestures to the large Storybook of Legends. She and the others walk in Heritage Hall.]

Meanwhile at the Bookball Championship, the giants are winning at 37 to 0.
Hopper Croakington II: [Hopper flies towards the scoreboard.] Ahh!
Crowd: [Booing.]
Hopper Croakington II: Uhh.
Daring confidently runs but trips in a large footprint.
Daring Charming: Whoa!
Crowd: [Booing.]
Cerise Hood: Ugh... [Pulls her face.]
Coach Gingerbreadman: Ohhh, come on!
Dexter Charming: But they're so fast!
Daring Charming: Awh, ah! Huh, ooh! Whoa!
Coach Gingerbreadman: Why aren't you doing what I told ya? Go! Go! Go! [Puts Daring back in shape.]
Daring Charming: Wait a spell! [Looks up at Cerise.] I know a damsel who might just be able to rescue us; Cerise! Um, if you're not doing anything, you know, maybe you could―
Cerise Hood: [Pokes Daring in the nose with her glove.] I'll get my shoes.

Apple and Raven: Apple and Raven try forcing the large Storybook open.


Apple White: Ooh, it just won't budge.
Raven Queen: So what do we do?
Blondie Lockes: How 'bout I give it a try?
Madeline Hatter: Blondie! [Blondie poofs her curls.]
Apple White: [Gasp.] Were you spying on us?
Blondie Lockes: A good reporter always knows where the story is. And, if it is a lock you need to get past, [Reaches in her hair to get a pin.] well, [Giggling.] that is kind of my thing. [Gasp.]
Raven Queen: Wicked. I wonder if we're supposed to... [Slowly reaches in the Storybook.]
Briar Beauty: Raven! [Raven turns back.]
Raven Queen: Okay, did everyone in their fairy godmother follow us here?
C.A. Cupid: Well, I didn't follow you. [Appears atop the large Storybook of Legends.] But I got bored at the game so, I thought I'd come check this place out; what are you all doing here?
Apple White: We're trying to find the real Storybook of Legends. So Raven can sign.
Briar Beauty: [Walks up to Apple.] I'm sorry, but I can't let you do that!
Apple White: Briar?
Briar Beauty: If you find the real book, that means I'm gonna lose you all!
Ashlynn Ella: Briar, [Puts her hand on Briar's shoulder.] maybe we can find another―[Raven sprints and dives in head-first into the Storybook.]
Briar Beauty: Raven, no!
All: [Gasping loudly.]
Apple White: I'm sorry, Briar. [Apple follows, with everyone else behind her.]
All: [Screaming.]
C.A. Cupid: Whoa. What is this place?
Cedar Wood: Look at all the writing.
Apple White: I think we're inside the book! [Picks up a small strip of paper.]
Raven Queen: Maddie, are there any more clues left?
Madeline Hatter: [Reading.] 'A chapter for all to live and survive with a page of the answer, and come out alive'! The books - there are eight books!
Ashlynn Ella: And there are eight of us.
Apple White: [Gasp.] It sounds like a page from the real Storybook of Legends is hidden in each of these books.
Cedar Wood: But, how do we know which story is ours?
Raven Queen: We don't.
Briar Beauty: Guess there's no going back. [She walks over to a random book and opens the pages up slightly. Everyone else does the same.]
Raven Queen: One...
Apple White: Two...
All: Three! [Everyone disappears.]

Cedar finds herself sitting on a bench table.
Cedar Wood: Three bowls of porridge? I'm in Blondie's story!
Bears: [Growling.]
Cedar Wood: Uh oh. Bears!

Raven finds herself standing at the edge of a fiery cliff.
Raven Queen: Oh no. I'm in Apple's story!
Evil Queen: Eat, my dear. Eat.
Raven Queen: [Gasp.]
Evil Queen: [Cackling.]
Raven is being cornered.
Raven Queen: Whoa!
Evil Queen: It's your destiny.

Ashlynn wakes up as a marionette in a wood shop.
Ashlynn Ella: Why do I feel...[Gasp.] I'm in Cedar's story!

Cupid runs down a flight of stairs and checks her feet, one of them suddenly bare.
C.A. Cupid: [Gasp.] Wait a spell! I'm in Ashlynn's story! Oh, it's midnight.

Blondie looks around a strangely colorful area.
Blondie Lockes: Um, okay. This is...[Has an alarmed look.]
Queen of Hearts: OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!
Blondie Lockes: Mad! [She starts running.]

Near Cupid's abode in Mount Olympus, Madeline finds herself with a bow and arrow in hand.
Madeline Hatter: I'm Cupid, tea-riffic! Ooh. I bet I'm supposed to make those bunnies fall in love! [She fires an arrow at the male bunny.]
Male bunny: [Angry squeaking.]
Madeline Hatter: ...Or not.

In a darkly lit room with only one light shining on a magic mirror, Briar walks to it.
Briar Beauty: Am I...[Gasp.]
Magic Mirror: It worked, my Queen. The poison worked. Now, you are the fairest in the land. [A light is shone on Apple's glass casket.]
Briar Beauty: I did that? [She puts her hands on top of the casket.] Oh no.

Apple sits by a spinning wheel and looks around.
Apple White: A spinning wheel, castle tower...that must mean I'm in Briar's story! Well, as long as I don't―[She accidentally pricks her finger.] no. No...[She starts drifting asleep.]
Giles Grimm: [Gasp.] The pages, for ages, the pages!

For now, the scores between the giants and students are tied because of Cerise's help.
Cheering: [Cheering.]
Cerise Hood: [Growling.]
A whistle blows, starting the round. Daring starts off with the bookball but it immediately is taken out of his hands by Cerise and she dashes off to the other side.
Daring Charming: Yes, Cerise. Run! Run!
Cerise continues running and dodging the giant's blocks.
Dexter Charming: Yeah, Cerise! Get it, girl! Whoo! Get it, get those...
Cerise gets caught in a giant's hand. Coach Gingerbreadman bites on his own hands because he's so nervous.
With a growl, Cerise bits the hand of the giant and she is dropped free.
Male student: Go! Go!
Coach Gingerbreadman: Run! Run as fast as you can!
Male student: Go, go, go, go!
Cerise nearly gets stomped on by a giant's foot.
Crowd: [Gasp in shock.] Cerise leaps over it. [Cheering.]
Three billy goats gruff: [Bleating.]
Cerise Hood: [She tosses the ball on the goal and howls in success.]
Sports announcer: And the game is over! Cerise Hood scores the winning touch-ground. Ever After High wins!

Back to Cedar, she hides upstairs in the bears' house. She flinches as the bears are closing in on her.
Bears: [Growling.]
Cedar Wood: The page! [She quickly takes it and runs to the wall, shortly appearing to where she started afterwards.] Huh? [Madeline appears again.] Maddie! Are you okay?
Madeline Hatter: Oh, yeah, but whoo! I mean, Cupid's job is not all just hearts and kisses.
Cedar Wood: [Giggling.]
Blondie Lockes: Not my head! [Holds hands out.] Oh, I don't ever want to go home with you on break. [Points to Maddie.]
Madeline Hatter: Whoo-ho-ho! [She gives Blondie a hug.]
Ashlynn Ella: [Ashlynn and Cupid appear together. Ashlynn feels at her face.] Aha!
C.A. Cupid: So that's what it feels like when the slipper's on the other foot!

Meanwhile, Raven is still in Apple's story.
Evil Queen: [Cackling.]
Raven Queen: [Screaming.]
Evil Queen: You must eat! [Holds out an apple to her cheek.]
Raven Queen: [Gasp.]
Evil Queen: It's your destiny. [She holds out more apples.]
Raven Queen: Oh! [Shoves the apples away.]
Evil Queen: You cannot escape your story! [As the witch cackles, Raven finds a piece of rolled parchment in the witch's apple basket. As the ground is crumbling beneath them, Raven reaches in and grabs it while she leaves the witch to fall.] [Screaming.]
Madeline Hatter: [Raven appears.] Raven, you made it! [She gives Raven a hug.]
Raven Queen: [Briar arrives back with a blank expression.] Briar, are you okay?
Briar Beauty: Oh, Raven. I had no idea...
Blondie Lockes: Wait a spell...where's Apple?
Ashlynn Ella: Briar's is the only book left!
Briar Beauty: So, if Apple has my story...and she fell asleep, she won't be able to find her page! I have to help her!
Raven Queen: Briar, wait! [She grabs onto Briar's arm.] It's too dangerous!
Briar Beauty: I have to - she's my best friend! [Briar forces Raven off and runs in.]
Thorn monster: [Roaring.]
Briar Beauty: [Screaming.] Huh? [She finds the page on the spinning wheel after simultaneously dodging the thorn monster's blocking.] Ugh! [The spinning wheel is shattered by the thorn monster and the page falls next to Briar.] I'm ending this chapter! [Briar reaches for the page and the scenery disappears around her, along with the monster.] Apple! [Briar brings Apple back.]
Ashlynn Ella: Briar did it!
Briar Beauty: [She and Apple reappear.] Apple! Apple, wake up. Wake up!
Apple White: [She opens her eyes.] You-you saved me.
Briar Beauty: Of course. [They both stand up.] We're best friends.
Apple White: Forever after. [She and Briar hold up their pages in victory. Everyone does the same.]

The eight girls make their way back to the Vault of Lost Tales where they return their pages to Giles. As the pages are all collected, they form together to make copper parchment with writing on it.
Raven Queen: That doesn't look like the Storybook of Legends.
Ashlynn Ella: Well, what does it say?
Raven Queen: [Reading.]'Speech return, words you say; break this curse for our new day'!
Briar Beauty: Nothing happened.
Giles Grimm: But it did; you retrieved the pages so you could break my curse.
Madeline Hatter: He says we retrieved the pages—[Gasp.]—Giles! You can talk! Like, everyone can understand you talk!
Giles Grimm: Yes, Madeline. [He hugs her.] And for that I thank you, all of you! It took extraordinary courage for you to face those challenges - you are all accreted to your stories.
Apple White: But, Mr. Grimm, if we weren't searching for the Storybook of Legends, do you know where it is?
Giles Grimm: No...but I know who took it!
Cedar Wood: Who?
In the background, Raven is startled.
Giles Grimm: ...The Evil Queen.
Raven Queen: My mother?
Giles Grimm: [He makes an explosion noise.]
Raven Queen: My mother stole the Storybook of Legends. Why? [Apple puts a hand on her shoulder.]
Giles Grimm: I do not know, but I can tell you this: years ago, your mother tried to expand beyond her story, and bring evil to all the tales.
Playback of Evil Queen: [Cackling.]
Giles Grimm: And my brother and I? We stopped her!
Blondie Lockes: But why are you down here?
Giles Grimm: Oddly enough, because of my brother.
Ashlynn Ella: What! Why?
Giles Grimm: [Sigh.] Let me tell you a tale: a long time ago when my brother and I were just boys...

Young Milton is waiting outside his house for his brother and father.
Young Milton Grimm:

Giles? I'm so sorry! [He hugs Giles.] I will never go against the stories again. Ever.

Giles Grimm: While I always respected our fairytale past, I also thought of that each of us should be able to write our own destinies.
Cedar Wood: And the Headmaster didn't like that.
Giles Grimm: Indeed he did not. He cursed me with that babble spell and imprisoned me here.
C.A. Cupid: But your curse is lifted now.
Giles Grimm: Yes! Thanks to you extraordinary girls! [The eight of them all beam together.] Now, come. Thronecoming is almost upon us!
Apple White: Are you coming with us?
Giles Grimm: [Chuckling.] Well, now. I haven't been to a party in ages! I wouldn't know what to wear.
Apple White: We'll help!
All except Briar: [Giggling.]
Giles Grimm: [Laughing.]

Cedar Wood: [She playfully hits Cerise's face with a pillow and giggles.]
Cerise Hood: [She growls and gnaws at it until feathers come out.]
Cedar and Cerise: [Laughing.]

The hairbrushes Poppy and her sister receive constantly try combing her hair.
Poppy O'Hair: Help! Enough already. [Waves her finger.] Enough.

Madeline Hatter: [She clears her throat and waves her teacup in Kitty's face.]
Kitty Cheshire: [She giggles and spits Earl Grey out.]

The eight girls all get ready in Ashlynn and Briar's dorm room. Briar is sitting on her bed not as excited as everyone else and stares at her carpet, which strangely lights up. Briar is suspicious and wishes to investigate further, until Ashlynn calls for her help.
Ashlynn Ella: Hey, Briar could you come help me with my hair?
Briar Beauty: Uh, yeah. [She stands up.] Um...coming.

At the dance, everyone is having a great time.
Three billy goats gruff: [Cheeky baas.]
Mr. Pied Piper acts as the photographer taking a picture of a student with Tiny, however the bookballers photobomb with Coach Gingerbreadman.
Boys: Yay! Yeah! Huzzah!

The students make their way in the room and everyone stares in awe.
Sheep: [They bleat in amazement as girls dressed up walk past them.]
Milton Grimm: Welcome, everyone... [The microphone rings.]
Crowd: [Murmuring.]
Milton Grimm: Ever After High's Thronecoming dance!
Humphrey Dumpty: [He gets shoved aside.] Whoa! Egh!
Crowd: [Cheering.]
Milton Grimm: The school tradition where we spellebrate our stories and those who came before us.
Melody Piper: [The spotlight goes on Melody.] We'll get to the big announcement: Thronecoming King and Queen soon! But now, let's get this party started. Follow me!
Daring Charming: Cerise.
Cerise Hood: Oh, hey Daring.
Daring Charming: I-I just wanna say that um, well, I am sorry I ever thought you were a "damsel-in-distress". And you really saved us out there, so yeah.
Cerise Hood: Oh, thanks!
Daring Charming: So, how about a dance? [He holds out his hand.]
Cerise Hood: Um, aren't there a few other girls ahead of me? [She looks behind Daring.]
Female students: [Screaming in admiration.]
Daring Charming: But I-I'd rather dance with you. [At that, Cerise grabs Daring's hand and they run to the dance floor.]
Using the tip of her unicorn mask, Briar imagines it as a needle on a spinning wheel.
Briar Beauty: [She gasps as she finds a picture on the slideshow of two girls taking a picture.] Madam Yaga?
Baba Yaga: Yes, my dear?
Briar Beauty: That picture...that looks like my dorm room, but who are those people?
Baba Yaga: [She puts on her glasses.] Why, that's Little Red Riding Hood and...the Evil Queen.
Briar Beauty: [Gasp.]
Baba Yaga: Ms. Beauty!
Sparrow's friends: [Laughing as he spits out his horrible-tasting punch.]
Briar Beauty: Cedar, do you have your revealer rays? I need to borrow them! [Cedar takes out her revealer rays as she's dancing and hands them to Briar.]
Briar sneaks a pin off of Blondie's hair as she's dancing and heads up to her dorm room.

Back at the dorms, Briar uses Cedar's revealer rays to find the carpet and key hole. She then uses Blondie's pin to unlock it and she pulls out the real Storybook of Legends.
Briar Beauty: The Storybook of Legends.
Cedar Wood: [Giggling.]
Apple and Raven: [Laughing as the Headmaster steps backstage to spit Baba Yaga's punch out.]
Milton Grimm: Hello, Apple. [Groaning.] Ms. Queen.
Raven Queen: Look, Headmaster, I know you're angry with me...
Milton Grimm: To say the least.
Raven Queen: ...and I'm sorry. I do wanna sign the Storybook of Legends.
Milton Grimm:
Raven Queen: Yes. If I don't, that terrible vision that I saw in the mirror will come true.
Milton Grimm: Wishing well. You saw the vision in the wishing well, dear.
Raven Queen: I never told anyone I saw a vision in the well. Which means the only way you know about it, is if you [She points to him.] put it there.
Apple White: Headmaster Grimm, that was wrong! [She waves a finger out to scold him.]
Milton Grimm: Well-I, I [Mumbling.]...[He clears his throat.] I did it to protect our stories!
Apple White: Raven needs to make up her own mind; [She holds Raven's hand.] she doesn't need to be tricked into what you think is right.
Giles Grimm: [He walks down a set of stairs provided by a float.] We can be good and evil. Happy and sad. Royal, and Rebel...many things all at once! [Apple and Raven run out as they give the brothers alone-time.]
Milton Grimm: Giles? B-but that's impossible!
Giles Grimm: Hello, brother. [He pulls out an old picture of them together.] I missed you. [He gives the photograph to his brother.] And I forgive you.
Milton Grimm: I missed you too. Can we...turn the page? Start a new chapter? [Giles holds out his arms and they both hug. Milton chuckles.]

Out in the forest, Briar scans the area to check if the coast is clear.
Female narrator: She's not really going to throw the book down the well, is she?
Male narrator: She doesn't want to lose her friends forever after.
Briar holds out the book from on top of the well and lets it go.
Female narrator:'s a mistake!
The well starts lighting up and it soon vanishes from sight.
Male narrator: Oh, she'll realize that. For Briar's story is far from over! In fact, in the next Chapter—
Female narrator: Briar runs off.

Hey, zip it! What did I tell you about spoilers?

Melody Piper: And now, it's time to announce the Thronecoming Queen and King. Let's ask our MirrorNet experts to give us the results!
Male host: And the candidates are: Apple White, Raven Queen, Blondie Lockes and C.A. Cupid.
A light shines above them.
Dexter Charming: Come on, tell 'em, Humphrey!
Humphrey Dumpty: Me? I thought you were gonna count 'em up!
Dexter Charming: That was your job.
Humphrey Dumpty: I had to put the website back together again after you broke it!
Dexter Charming: Me? Awh, man! [Shrugs.]
Madeline Hatter: [Laughing.]
Melody Piper: [She holds her hands out.] Looks like you got more time to get your votes in! [Winks.] So, jump on the MirrorNet, log into MyChapter and make it happen! We'll announce the winners soon, stay tuned! Meanwhile, real page-ripper! Happy Thronecoming, everyone. [Everyone proceeds dancing.]
Male narrator: Happy Thronecoming indeed.
Female narrator: And if there's one thing we learned, it's that you can't judge a book by its cover.
Male narrator: Especially a fairytale.
Female narrator: That's what I just said. Must you clarify every little thing?
Male narrator: There's nothing wrong with clarification!
Female narrator: I mean, come on, we've been through this.
Male narrator: It's what good what storytelling's all about!
Female narrator: Oh, you don't always have to have the last word!
Male narrator: Oh, of course you do!
Female narrator: Yes, I do.
In Wonderland, the Storybook of Legends is washed next to the well Briar threw the book in.
