Discovery Family will resume showing new (to those who have managed to avoid spoilers) Season Seven episodes starting on Saturday, August 5th. That day will see both “Discordant Harmony” and “The Perfect Pear” air starting at 11:30am ET/10:30am CT. Other episodes airing in August are “Fame and Misfortune”, “Triple Threat”, and “Campfire Tales”. Synopses below:
- Discordant Harmony premieres Saturday, August 5 at 11:30a/10:30c
- When Discord invites Fluttershy to his realm for tea, he worries she won’t be comfortable and begins to change it and himself with disastrous results.
- The Perfect Pear premieres Saturday, August 5 at 12/11c
- The Apple Siblings learn about their parent’s love story and discover that they’re half Pear. Guest stars William Shatner and Felicia Day.
- Fame and Misfortune premieres Saturday, August 12 at 11:30a/10:30c
- Twilight Sparkle’s publishing of the friendship journal has unintended consequences when ponies start to argue over who wrote the best lessons.
- Triple Threat premieres Saturday, August 19 at 11:30a/10:30c
- Spike accidentally invites Ember and Thorax to Ponyville on the same day! Confident that the two new leaders will not get along, he does all he can to keep them apart and cover the fact that the other is there.
- Campfire Tales premieres Saturday, August 26 at 11:30a/10:30c
- When their big sister/little sister camping trip is ruined by Fly-ders, Applejack, Rarity and Rainbow Dash tell Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo the stories of their favorite legends. Inspired by the tales, the girls make the most out of their new situation.
Of course, both “Discordant Harmony” and “The Perfect Pear”—which features William Shatner and Felicia Day—were aired in Australia in June on Boomerang. It is the policy to not release reviews of these episodes until their airings in the United States.
With BronyCon the next weekend, that means that “Fame and Misfortune” will air that weekend. It is unknown at this time as to whether there will be an official screening which would be a first for the Baltimore-based convention.
If the season continues to air weekly, and the finale is a two-parter, the projected finale date at this point would be October 28th (three weeks after the movie opens). It has already been revealed that a sneak peek of Season Eight will be unveiled at Hascon on September 9th at noon at the Rhode Island Convention Center (Room 551 A/B) in Providence.
Of course, this weekend sees the My Little Pony panel this Friday at San Diego Comic Con with presumably both a preview of the Movie and the remainder of Season Seven.
