Opening view of Ponyville.
always wants to look her best.
, I've shined my hooves for the arrival of Princess Celestia.
Rarity admiring herself through Pinkie's hoof.
That's quite the reflection.
"I'm surpised she's not here yet"
"I wonder why is it taking so long?"
Maybe she's just running a bit late.
I'm getting worried, she should be here by now.
How much longer will it take?
"She still had many more terribly important things to do before she got here."
"Yeah right, that's Discord"
"Will Princess Celestia..."
"...bring along someone like that?"
Princess Celestia with Discord.
The Mane 6 and Spike shocked.
Princess Celestia and Twilight
"With all due respect, Princess Celestia. How could you bring Discord here?!"
*Twilight coughs* your majesty.
I am well aware that the last time Discord was here, he caused serious havoc
You remember what he did to us?
There is no way we're giving Discord a second chance!
"And tricking us all into being the opposite of our true selves."
Pinkie is angry over whipped cream.
Only the one and only Pinkie Pie would care about whipped cream dollops.
What a regal shot of Princess Celestia.
Also we need Discord's spot in the statue garden for a new bird bath
Your idea is bad and you should feel bad!
This is an awful, terrible plan!
It's going to destroy us all!
It's the worst plan since "Cutie Mark Crusaders brain surgeons"!
I guess we could use the Elements again, right girls?
Spike backing away slowly.
Don't worry girls, we've got the elements right here.
The Elements! I haven't seen them since we defeated Discord.
"Now where is Fluttershy?"
Princess Celestia concerned.
"What's he going on about now?"
We are pretty sure that beaver was not as polite as you made him out to be, Fluttershy.
Opening of the dam scene. View of Fluttershy and AJ
Now you listen, Beaverton Beaverteeth.
Beaver: I refuse to be talked to that way by a background pony!
Apologize now, Applejack.
Fluttershy settles the argument.
Applejack getting pouty while Fluttershy holds her back
Just Applejack and Fluttershy.
Celestia talking to Fluttershy.
Fluttershy being doubtful in herself. What else is new?
Princess Celestia knows Fluttershy can reform Discord.
Fluttershy blushing is so cute.
"You may release Discord…"
"…once I am at a safe distance."
I must go - my planet needs me!
Alright, girls let's do this!
Maybe these ponies put on their Necklaces of Harmony...
...but with Twilight's magic?
Getting ready to release their once mighty encounter.
Oh, they sure do look amazing.
A beautiful view of the elements together.
AH! After a few episodes, I'm free! It's time to rule Equestria once again!
This guy is so utterly flexible.
Somepony got me out of that prison block.
What are you doing Discord?
Make that bunny cute again, now!
Cute? What do you mean by "Cute?" He's as cute as he is right now!
And you're relying on the yellow moeblob to do it!
I was conscious the whole time
Discord exploits Twilight's devotion to Celestia.
Better watch your step Discord!
Not impressed by the Care Bear Stare
OK, fine. Freaking buzzkills.
Pinkie Pie: Hey! That's my shtick!
Twilight doesn't believe Discord one bit.
Discord holding Fluttershy.
"...but that doesn't mean we have to act the same way."
Fluttershy wants to be hospitable.
You don't mind, right Angel?
Discord lounges on Fluttershy's couch.
Twilight and friends angry at Discord.
We're keeping an eye on you.
Like it? It's a Discord original, obviously an improvement on the original design.
This is a trainwreck. Except I am going to be looking away.
I have confidence this will work.
Just leave it to me, Twilight.
Would you fancy a spot of tea, Fluttershy?
I got a bad feeling about this.
We can't just leave Fluttershy with Discord.
Discord chowing down on pieces of paper.
Discord in a robe, how cute
How do ya like them carrots?
A cute uh oh from Twilight Sparkle.
"Are you sure this isn't overdoing it?"
Discord and Fluttershy talking in a spinning house, so trippy.
Fluttershy defending her friends from Discord's insults
Discord talking to Fluttershy.
Discord literally being two-faced
It's OK, Angel
, you're safe now.
Angel: Pardon me while I go throw up
Can you explain why there is a page missing from this book?
That does explain Discord eating some paper.
Maybe at one point, Rarity
took off her Necklace of Generosity...
...put on the purple and pink dress she's made and then put the necklace back on again.
Wow... that came out of his mouth.
"It's gonna be a bumpy night."
Awww! I'm going to name it George! You're a good little gravy boat aren't you George!? Yesh you are!
Getting hot gravy poured down your pants can't be pleasant.
Be our guest! Be our guest! Put our service to the test!
Ugh, this is a mix of Dr. Seuss and Beauty & the Beast
"Something fishy is going on."
But Magikarp are incapable of learning Water Gun!
Tea Pot used Water Gun! It's super effective!
"That's what friends do."
"Why yes, we are friends."
I never had a friend for life..
The ponies shocked to hear the news
What's that? Timmy
is stuck in the well?
We just don't know what went wrong!
Behold! Equestria's largest game of bobbing for apples
Can Fluttershy deal with discorded beavers?
Fluttershy took off her necklace again
Joke's on you, ponies. I Lied!
What's it going to be Fluttershy, your element,
...or stay as Discord's friend.
It takes a special somepony to make anger and adorable go perfectly together.
"Well played, Fluttershy. Well played."
Now I know I've got a heart, 'cause it's breaking…
Discord returns everything to normal.
Now, I'm sure mischief is totally fine if I fix things afterwards. Besides—zeitgeist and all that.
What? Don't you trust me?
This is just after Fluttershy put back on her necklace.
"Oh... Alright. Friendship is magic."
Fluttershy and her new friend, Discord.
