In the following days a Royal dinner is organized for the formal presentation of the commitment between the two, in it will be the parents of Prince Phillip, Queen Ingrid and King John; Aurora asks Maleficent to attend with her and be at her side as her mother figure, without being very convinced she accepts and accompanies the Queen of the Moors.
Everything happens in total normality until Phillip's mother, Queen Ingrid, begins to tell the story of Aurora and how Maleficent cursed her before she was born, and how humans suffered because of her creatures and silly wars, blaming her for the death of Aurora's father and hundreds of humans.
Maleficent does not raise those infamies, but Ingrid unleashes her anger when she happily tells Aurora that once she becomes Phillip's wife, she can finally have a real family full of humans and not monsters.
Maleficent gets up from the table calling Queen Ingrid insolent and casts a spell on King John causing her an eternal dream; amid the uproar the Queen calls the guards who were already alerted by orders from herself; upon entering the room to attack it, it manages to escape through the window, but one of them shoots an arrow and manages to hurt it, causing it to fall into the sea.

Conall appears before her and tells her that she is one of the leaders of the fairies in exile and that it was she who also drew them when she drowned; he introduces him to the rest of the inhabitants and explains that they are hidden by the war against humans; but they are tired of being in exile and plan to fight Queen Ingrid to restore peace between races.
For this they need Maleficent to join them and guide them along with their army, it is the only way to avoid Aurora's suffering and the imposition of Ingrid in front of all the Kingdoms, finally, the powerful Maleficent accepts and will battle with all her forces with such to recover his dear Aurora.
