It was reported about an hour ago that an air date for season 2 was at hand.  Someone who works for a tv listing company apparently sent EqD an e-mail about the rumor, but proof won’t be available until tomorrow.

Rumored Start Date: September 17th, 9am EST.

Rumored until a solid source appears.  This is also a Saturday, which means the series has changed locations.  My memory says something was said it would be Fridays @ 2pm next season, but of course things change, and someone said the 2nd season of Pound Puppies had also moved to Saturday.  Sucks for people who sleep in, but the move makes sense, just like old fashion Saturday morning cartoons.

Season 2, Episode 1: The Return of Harmony
Discord escapes from his stone prison and Twilight and her friends act quickly to find the Elements of Harmony to stop him.

As said, multiple people who work for the show has confirmed this episode description.  So we are left with the questions, who is Discord, and what pawn shop did the Elements of Harmony end up in last season.

Inb4 someone screams about not spoilering that episode description.  While discussion of this information took place around /co/ tonight, its been pointed out we knew this information as far back as April, but just didn’t notice.  Big time spoilers possible behind the page break.

The above looks to have come from /b/, and seems to talk about Discord.

And this has major episode 1 spoilers, as it explains the general episode.

    Oh wow! I'm so glad they're actually going back to the Elements of Harmony. Far too many children's programs introduce concepts and themes that are ostensibly important and important to the characters and their world. Only, these concept are quickly abandoned for a simpler, "danger of the week" format and never re-addressed or returned to.

    This sounds very exciting and I am counting the minutes and seconds until Season 2!

    Is it just me, or does that second cap say it was from 2 months ago?

    It totally was from 2 months ago. I read it when it came up, thought it was interesting speculation, and discarded it as there was nothing to back it up.

    Though now it has some merit, and it's awesome.

    Season 2 pilot seems a bit darker than the season 1 pilot.

    I like that.
