An old enemy returns with the goal of changing history in an episode that aired one year ago today.
“The Cutie Re-Mark” is a two-parter that makes up the 25th and 26th episodes of the 5th season of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Written by Josh Haber and directed by Denny Lu, it first aired on November 28th, 2015 on Discovery Family network.
Princess Twilight Sparkle is shocked to find Starlight Glimmer return, seeking revenge for how Twilight and her friends un-did her oppressive village based around equality. Starlight used magic to travel back into the past to change history where Twilight never becomes a princess or even meets her friends. Now, Twilight and Spike must travel through alternate universes while trying to stop Starlight’s sinister plan.
The two-parter shows different possible outcomes centered on various antagonists from the show including King Sombra, Queen Chrysalis, and others. The episode ends with a song, “Friends Are There For You,” and with Starlight Glimmer apparently joining the Mane Six and changing her ways. Starlight, voiced by Kelly Sheridan, would continue to a recurring character throughout the sixth season of the show.
