School Raze - Part 1 is the twenty-fifth episode of season eight of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and the one hundred and ninety-fourth overall. It is the first part of a two-part season finale. The title is a parody of the eighth season premiere School Daze.
In this first part, the magic of Equestria mysteriously begins to fail, and Twilight Sparkle leads her friends on a quest for answers, leaving the School of Friendship open to attack from a dangerous mastermind.
This episode aired on August 28, 2018, on Nickelodeon in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, forty-six days ahead of its scheduled premiere on Discovery Family. It aired on September 8, 2018 on Boomerang in Australia and is scheduled to release on Ruutu's on demand service on September 22, 2018.
A field trip gone awry
The episode begins at the School of Friendship, where Cozy Glow receives mail from a mail delivery pony, gives a new student directions to class, and helps Silverstream with a crossword puzzle. Due to her advancements in the curriculum and constant help around the school, Cozy has been appointed as Twilight Sparkle's personal friendship assistant.
When Cozy brings the mail to Twilight in her office, Twilight realizes she's late to chaperone the students' field trip to Cloudsdale, but Cozy says she got Rainbow Dash to fill in for her. She had even taken the initiative to plan out Twilight's schedule for the day and catalog all of the school's magical artifacts, and Twilight is both impressed and grateful.
- "Helping is what friendship's all about."
- — Cozy Glow
Meanwhile, Rainbow Dash shows the students the Cloudsdale Weather Factory, but the students are more fascinated by being able to walk on clouds thanks to Starlight Glimmer's magic. Just then, Yona falls through the clouds and plummets toward the ground. When Starlight's magic suddenly fails, she and the other non-winged creatures in the group start falling as well. Rainbow Dash and her fellow winged creatures fly down to save them, and Starlight has no explanation for why her magic suddenly stopped working.
The vanishing magic mystery
Rainbow and Starlight return to the school and inform Twilight of what happened. Twilight discovers her own magic starting to fail when she tries levitating a book, and when Fluttershy and Rarity arrive, Rarity reveals that her magic is completely gone. Cozy Glow recalls learning about a creature that devours magic—Lord Tirek—but the other ponies say he is locked up inside Tartarus. Spike enters and coughs up a letter from Princess Celestia summoning Twilight and her friends to an emergency meeting in Canterlot.
At Canterlot Castle, Celestia and Luna explain that multiple reports are coming in about ponies' magic suddenly failing, and Princess Cadance reports of similar incidents happening in the Crystal Empire. A messenger pony delivers a letter from Star Swirl the Bearded, in which Star Swirl says magic is disappearing all over Equestria and estimated to be completely gone in three days. Twilight and her friends volunteer to go to Tartarus to see if Tirek has escaped or is masterminding this crisis from behind bars.
While she and her friends travel to Tartarus, Twilight leaves Starlight Glimmer in charge of the school. Cozy Glow questions this decision after the last time Starlight was left in charge, but Twilight is confident in her ability and asks Cozy to assist her. Cozy eagerly accepts this task and takes Starlight to plan out her schedule as temporary headmare.
