If there were any words to describe how blown away I was with the premier of season 2 of Friendship is Magic, it can be summed up in one word: epic! It begins in a garden where the Cutie Mark Crusaders on a field trip with their class and get into an argument. Their argument is so powerful it awakens a statue of a creature known as Discord who was known to have cause chaos and is now free. Throughout all of Equestria strange things like cotton candy clouds, chocolate, rain and big apples are created. Princess Celestia summons Twilight Sparkle and her friends and tells them about Discord's history and they must use the Elements of Harmony to defeat them. The EoH turn out to be stolen and Discord makes Twilight and her friends get them in a maze. They are not allowed to fly or use magic though and each pony is separated from the rest and Discord starts his mischief on all the ponies. Each pony is manipulated into their own weaknesses such as Applejack thinking her friendship with the others is over, Rarity fall for a giant diamond, Pinkie Pie is made to believe her friends laugh at her and not with her, Fluttershy is just made evil when she doesn't fall for Discord's tactics, and Rainbow Dash is tricked into believing Cloudsdale will be destroyed and tricked into flying resulting in the girls losing the game. The episode ends with Discord laughing that they have lost and the Elements will never be found and ends on a cliffhanger. This was a fantastic start to the second season of this show. I loved Discord and how he manipulated all the ponies into their own weaknesses and he had some funny moments as well. I also loved how Pinkie was acting around with the wild weather. This was a fantastic start to season 2 of this awesome show and I recommend it for all!
FINAL SCORE: 10/10
