: Soarin, it's been too long. I see you came to your senses and came crawling back, you even brought a new recruit with you.
: That's not why I'm here Dusk Cloud. The only reason the Shadowbolts remained is to test future Wonderbolt candidates. But that stunt you pulled crossed the line. It nearly killed Rainbow Dash here and a bunch of innocent bystanders. Because of that, we cannot keep the group secret from the Princesses anymore. Me and Spitfire have come to a conclusion.
: What are you going to do, expel us all? There's more of us here than there is of you two. And none of the pegasi royal guards can keep up with us!
: No. The Shadowbolts will remain in operation as per Princess Celestia's and Princess Luna's orders. But you, however, are relieved of your duties as Shadowbolt commander.
