This Saturday, My Little Pony is galloping straight into the zeitgeist.

Back in October, MLP head writer Meghan McCarthy told EW that the show’s third season would include a special episode that “explores how you should handle a bully, and sometimes what the source of bullying is.” That episode — called “One Bad Apple” — airs this Saturday. In it, the young Cutie Mark Crusaders are crushed when Apple Bloom’s cousin Babs Seed begins to cruelly target them. Check out an exclusive image from the episode above, as well as an exclusive clip featuring a catchy musical number below.

Will the Crusaders prevail over the new bully in town — and might they even end up befriending their tormenter? Find out Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
