Recap / Miraculous Ladybug S01 E26 "Stoneheart (Origins Part 2)"

Go To
"Nice try, Hawk Moth, but we know who the bad guy is. Let's not reverse the roles here. Without you, none of these innocent victims would be transformed into villains. Hawk Moth, no matter how long it takes, we will find you, and you will hand us your Miraculous!"

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


  • Actually Pretty Funny: After a stunned Marinette accidentally closes Adrien's umbrella on her head, Adrien bursts out laughing. Marinette joins in after a moment.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Invoked; Marinette 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.
  • Call-Forward: Alya's comment on getting an interview on Ladybug after missing out on the battle at the Eiffel Tower indeed happens in "Mime", which happens some time after this episode.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Ladybug gives one to Hawk Moth in her way of denying him the Miraculouses.
  • Darker and Edgier: As this is part two of the origins episode, the Darker and Edgier trope continues. This time, with a near Shoot the Hostage from the police, brutal beating, suffocation/nearly being crushed, and what could be considered a terrorist threat.
  • Easily Forgiven: Mylène to Ivan, and Tikki to Marinette. It takes longer with Marinette to Adrien, however.
  • Epic Fail: Ivan tries to sing his feelings for Mylène, but only scares her because he chooses loud rock music to sing along with.
  • Get a Room!: While having Mylene and Chloe in his hands, Stoneheart/Yvan comments that he needs to tell a message at the Eiffel tower, but right after, Mylene and him will be together forever. Chloe sarcastically comments that if she disturb them, Stoneheart can just let her know.

  • Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: When the akuma is freed, Stoneheart turns back into Ivan. Unfortunately, Stoneheart was clinging to the spire of the Eiffel Tower at the time, and now Ivan and Mylène are holding onto nothing.
  • Helicopter Flyswatter: Stone Heart swats at the pursuing helicopters as he climbs the Eiffel Tower carrying Mylène.
  • 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.

  • "King Kong" Climb: Stoneheart climbs the Eiffel Tower with Mylène and Chloé in his hands, while being surround by police helicopters.
  • 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.
  • Orbital Shot: When the Stone Men swarm around Cat Noir, the camera rotates around the superhero to get a better stock of his dire situation.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Marinette boldly gives one to Chloé and has her and Sabrina sit where they should be sitting, much to the amusement of the Class.
  • Serenade Your Lover: Going on Marinette's advice, Ivan tries to woo Mylène by writing a song and singing for her. Unfortunately, he does not realize heavy metal might not make the best love ballad.
  • 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×Mylène, 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 Battlizer finisher move in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive, which consists of destroying the Monster of the Week with repeated strikes that form the emblem of the Operation Overdrive Rangers, when in this case, Ladybug lashes out at Hawk Moth with her yo-yo several times that results in the capture of the Akumas before releasing them in a white wave of butterflies. Also the fact that there was a giant floating head too.
    • Stone Heart climbing up the Eiffel Tower with Mylène gives a familiar feeling to those who have seen King Kong.
  • 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.
  • Stunned Silence: How Cat Noir, Chloé, André, Roger, and most likely all of Paris, react to when Ladybug takes down Hawk Moth and captures all of his Akumas.
  • 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.
  • There Was a Door: Stoneheart doesn't bother himself with doors. Nor walls, for that matter.
  • 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 Mylène give one to Ivan while he's Stoneheart. The shock causes him to lose his grip on her and the akuma. Mylène manages to hang on to his finger while Cat grabs the akuma.
  • Unhand Them, Villain!: Mayor Bourgeois demands that Stoneheart release his daughter. Stoneheart, 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 Mylène 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.
