The possible suspects who might have murdered Overall Concept
- Suri Polomare
Crusading for a Turnabout
The defendant in this case will be Sweetie Belle
- In a twist of irony, the only crusader who didn't get in trouble during Turnabout Storm will be the one to suffer during this case.
This case will be rooted in or a forward leap to wonderbolt episodesThe immediate ideas would be:
- Wonderbolts Academy: Something involving Lightning Dust
- Rainbow Falls: Where Rainbow's decision to stick with her friends had more far reaching impacts on the Wonderbolts than expected.
- Rarity Investigates: This would be where it's a call forward when something like this happens much more violently than was presented before, and it's up to Phoenix and crew to clear Rainbow of Murder once again.
Possible Alternative Defendants for this case (besides Rainbow Dash)
- Bulk Biceps
A Turnabout for Brotherhood
The defendant in this case will either be Shining Armor or Big MacintoshSince the title is A Turnabout for Brotherhood, it is a good guess that somehow, one of two big brothers of the two Mane 6 members will be accused of murder, meaning the gang will have to help him.
The Turnabouts of Friendship
The defendant in this case will be SpikeHaving such a tiny role in Turnabout Storm AND an important character in Friendship is Magic, Spike being accused of murder and needing serious help will be an important change for him and his fans in the fandom!
An ongoing arc for this story is Athena's feeling of inexperience compared with her team
- It's first hinted at in Case 1-2, where Apollo and Phoenix give her a slight ribbing about her lack of practice by comparison, or that someone else is more needed for the case. This will develop until Athena gets to defend, and be a Coming-of-Age Story to overcome her anxieties to show she is where she says she is.
The overall story
Somepony is using magical mind control to prompt the murders5 murders in the span of less than a year in land where it just doesn't happen? Seems kind of an important detail that somepony is pushing others to do this.
