Recap / Miraculous Ladybug S 01 E 26 Stone Heart Origin Part 2

Go To

Adrien goes to school while Marinette still has doubts about her being Ladybug. When Ivan gets akumatized again for failing to express his feelings for Mylene, Marinette will have to decide if she's ready to be Ladybug and save Paris with Cat Noir.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Ascended Fangirl: Attempted; Marienette slips the Miraculous into Alya's bag, thinking that since Alya is a huge fan of superheroes in general, she'd make a better Ladybug than her. It doesn't work out because Alya forgets her bag, and Marinette has to step up when Alya gets into trouble.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Ladybug gives one to Hawk Moth in her way of denying him the Miraculouses.
  • Epic Fail: Ivan tries to sing his feelings for Mylene, but only scares her because he chooses loud rock music to sing along with.
  • Easily Forgiven: Mylene to Ivan, and Tikki to Marinette. It takes longer with Marinette to Adrien, however.
  • Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: When the akuma is freed, Stone Heart turns back into Ivan. Unfortunately, Stone Heart was clinging to the spire of the Eiffel Tower at the time, and now Ivan and Mylene are holding onto nothing.
  • Heroic Resolve: Marinette has one when she sees Cat Noir being dragged off and Alya nearly being crushed by a car. It's enough to get her back into action.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Near the end, Marinette and Alya take Chloé and Sabrina's seats and sentence the latter to the same seats where they placed gum for Marinette to sit on earlier. Chloé is enraged.

  • Ignored Epiphany: When Stone Heart throws Chloe from the Eiffel Tower, she prays that she will be nicer if she survives, only to recant when Ladybug saves her at the last minute before she could finish.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Marinette, when she first meets Adrien, accuses him of putting gum on her seat. Adrien protests that he was trying to get it off, but Marinette doesn't believe him since he refuses to just blame Chloé for the misunderstanding.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Plagg congratulates Adrien for getting a girlfriend on his first day of school after he gives his umbrella to Marinette. Adrien insists she's only a friend, though he's still happy with getting that much.
  • Shipper on Deck: Marientte for Ivan/Mylene, Master Fu for Marinette/Adrien.
  • Shout-Out: Ladybug's way of defeating the giant head of Hawk Moth is done similarly to how Mack does his finisher in Battlizer in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. Also the fact that there was a giant floating head too.

  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Ladybug gives one to Hawk Moth, reminding everyone that he's the villain of the story and that she and Cat Noir will do everything they can to stop him.
  • So Proud of You: Master Fu when he sees Marinette and Adrien's lives improve following their first times as Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • Synchronized Swarming: Hawk Moth reveals himself to all of Paris using a swarm of akuma shaped like his head. Ladybug makes quick work of the swarm, getting praise from everyone.
  • Take Up My Sword: Marinette tries to pass the Ladybug earrings onto Alya by hiding them in Alya's bag, but Alya forgets it in her rush to film the action, forcing Marinette to take them back when Alya gets in trouble.
  • Taking the Heat: Adrien doesn't out Chloé as the one responsible for putting gum on Marinette's seat since she's his only friend. Nino decides to fix that problem by becoming his friend, and encourages him to tell Marinette the truth.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Marinette steps up as Ladybug for good, and learns to stand up for herself against Chloé.
  • True Love's Kiss: Ladybug uses her yo-yo to make Mylene give one to Ivan while he's Stone Heart. The shock causes him to lose his grip on her and the akuma. Mylene manages to hang on to his finger while Cat grabs the akuma.
  • Unhand Them, Villain!: Mayor Bourgeois demands that Stone Heart release his daughter. Stone Heart, currently on the Eiffel Tower, complies by pitching Chloé in his general direction. Ladybug saves her before she hits the ground.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Marinette manages to talk Ivan down after Chloé mocks him for becoming a monster, but her advice on how to approach Mylene ultimately leads to him becoming akumatized again.
  • World-Healing Wave: The first time Ladybug and Cat Noir sees it. Ladybug can't help but yell out "This is miraculous!"
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: When Ladybug doubts her ability to be a hero, Cat Noir assures her that she just proved she is by saving Chloé, and that they'll prove it to the rest of Paris together.
  • You Have Failed Me: Gabriel Agreste to Nathalie and the Gorilla for letting Adrien escape to go to school.
