"Lucky and the Big Goodbye" is the twenty-ninth episode of Spirit Riding Free and the third episode of the fifth season.

Plot synopsis

El Circo Dos Grillos travels to a prosperous frontier town where Lucky, Abigail, Pru, and Solana put up posters announcing their performances. Fito and Estrella explain to Lucky that after this performance, the circus will traverse the mountains, and will not return to the region for a year, but Lucky is adamant that the circus is her new home and that she will be going with them. Meanwhile, the town's council is opposed to any circus performance, the last traveling circus through town having robbed homes while distracting the town with their performance.

The mayor orders Fito to depart as soon as provisions are gathered, without performing. Concerned that the town's children will have been deprived of seeing the circus, the PALs hatch a plan to perform a secret farewell show in the town's square. The show goes off without a hitch, and at least one parent changes his mind about the circus.

The next morning, Abigail and Pru persuade Lucky to return to Miradero with them. After the long ride home, Lucky faces her father, and, when Miss Flores emerges from the house, embraces her sincerely.

Notes & trivia

  • According to the posters, the circus's performance dates in the town were to be August 19th and 20th.
    • However, when Abigail asks Fito on the morning of the 19th whether "tonight will be our last show", Fito responds in the affirmative, making it unclear whether the circus intended to perform a second show on the 20th.
