Sypnosis

The path of black rocks leads Rapunzel and her companions to the Great Tree, an ancient, magical place. They encounter the unpredictable Hector and discover the moonstone magic formula. Hector proves to be a dangerous adversary to the group, and Rapunzel realizes that her only chance to save her friends is the uncontrollable Moonstone magic formula.[2]

Plot

The path of black rocks leads Rapunzel and her companions to the Big Tree, an ancient, magical place. On their way to it, they encounter the unpredictable Hector, the last member of the Brotherhood and discover the Moonstone's uncontrollable Decay Incantation inside the tree. After traversing the interior of the tree, all of them ended up in a fight with Hector near the exit, who got pushed off by Adira and fell far down to the tree's heart. In a last resort to stop them all, he removed the spear inhibiting the dark magic, awakening it. That magic possessed him and eventually overpowered Rapunzel's companions, but was foiled by her usage of the second Incantation. This however, withered Cassandra's right arm when she touched Rapunzel in an attempt to stop the incantation, although her cries of anguish managed to achieve that. As the tree starts collapsing as a result, Adira went down to the heart with the magical spear while the Coronans escape.
