Can the Mane 6 unite to defeat the sinister Discord, or is Ponyville cursed to live in chaos forever?
“The Return of Harmony, Part II” is the 2nd episode of the 2nd season of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Written by M.A. Larson, it first aired on The Hub on September 24th, 2011.
In the episode, which immediately picks up where the events of Part I left off, Twilight Sparkle is left with a group of friends who act very differently than normal, and finds that in their current state, the Elements of Harmony have no effect. Is the only hope for Equestria gone, or can Twilight find a way to save the day?
Following the two-parter, Discord wouldn’t return until the third season of the show. Afterwards, he would become a recurring character, voiced by John de Lancie each time. At the end of this episode, the victory celebration pays tribute to the classic ending of Star Wars: A New Hope. Including this one, every season of Friendship is Magic so far has opened up with a two-parter.
