"Dreams Forever! Light Throughout the Sky" is the thirty-ninth and final episode of the fourth season of the original Sailor Moon anime, and the 166th episode overall. The episode first aired in Japan on March 2, 1996. The English dub title for this episode is "The Sweetest Dream", and the episode first aired in North America on November 16, 2000.
With the new moon appearing to seal Queen Nehellenia once again, the evil Queen takes Super Sailor Chibi Moon's unconscious body to annihilate her for granting enough power to energize the mighty Golden Crystal of Dreams and cause her second major defeat in centuries.
Super Sailor Moon follows in a desperate attempt to save Chibi Moon from her venomous grasp. She arrives and is shocked and pitted to see an elderly, ugly version of Nehellenia at the top. Can Super Sailor Moon warm her frozen heart with the power of friendship and love?
Changes From the Manga
- The hideous appearance that Nehellenia takes on, when defeated by Sailor Moon, is similar to Zirconia.
- Nehellenia's past in the Silver Millennium is that she attacked the celebration of the birth of Princess Serenity and Queen Serenity sealed Nehellenia away, but the evil queen had cursed the infant Princess Serenity to die before ascending to the Moon throne.
- Nehellenia was a dark force within the New Moon who's goal was to take the Moon Kingdom for herself.
- The Golden Crystal remains with Mamoru, it being his very own Sailor Crystal.
