A mysterious threat is draining the magic of ponies across Equestria in an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that aired on this day in television history.
“Twilight’s Kingdom” is a two-part episode that concluded the 4th season of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Written by Meghan McCarthy, both parts aired back-to-back on May 10th, 2014.
In the episode, the villainous Tirek has escaped from Tartarus and is draining magic from ponies across the land and gaining strength as he does so. As this happens, Princess Twilight Sparkle comes closer to opening a mysterious box she discovered earlier–a box that could hold the key to saving Equestria.
Tirek is based on a villain from the original 1980s My Little Pony TV special, Rescue at Midnight Castle.
