Fluttershy believes the key to turning Discord good is to befriend him by being as kind as she possibly can. Her friends have their doubts and promise to remain close in case anything goes wrong. They decide to make a back-up plan but unfortunately, they're unable to since Discord has torn out and eaten all the pages in Twilight's books containing information on spells that could reform him forcibly.
Even so, Fluttershy is convinced that she's making progress with the trickster, and invites all her friends over for a dinner party to prove it. The party goes about as well as Fluttershy's friends expect, what with Discord bringing the tableware to life and playing pranks on everypony. Still, Fluttershy puts up with it all because, in her words, Discord and her are friends and that's what friends do—to the surprise of everyone, especially Discord, who seems genuinely touched that Fluttershy is willing to be the first friend he's ever had.
The tender moment is ruined when Angel Bunny barges in and warns everypony that bewitched beavers have dammed up the stream at Sweet Apple Acres and flooded Applejack 's orchard to the canopy.
As it turns out, Fluttershy has seen Discord's dirty work coming and puts him to the test, demanding he return the orchard to normal. Discord agrees on the condition she remove her Element and never use it on him.
Fluttershy, to her friends' dismay, accepts, but then he turns the flood into an ice skating rink. Discord gloats that his friendship with Fluttershy has left him eternally free of the Elements, but Fluttershy, still honoring her end of the deal, now refuses to acknowledge him as her friend.

He explains to the mistrusting ponies that he's become ill with the "blue flu", and that he's specifically looking for Fluttershy to look after him while he's sick. Where is that dear, sweet Fluttershy? Applejack questions how Discord knows about her visit, where Discord replies that she mentioned it in her last letter, and also says that Fluttershy and him write frequent letters to each other since they're friends.
Later on, in Fluttershy's cottage, when Discord actually becomes sick by the Tatzlwurm and is quarantined in a plastic bubble, Applejack and Rarity affirm that Discord got what he deserved when he interfered with all of Twilight and Cadance's day out together, but Fluttershy cuts in defending him, saying that he's learned his lesson.

Twilight returns to Ponyville and informs her friends, who are in disbelief of the decision, save Fluttershy. However, Twilight once more feels rejected and heads to the Castle of the Two Princesses to keep herself busy, with the rest of her friends tagging along to keep her company.
As they near the castle, Discord meets up with them and brings up a point about the Tree of Harmony and the mysterious locked chest and how it can help Twilight prove herself as a princess, accompanied with his usual shenanigans, which only Fluttershy finds amusing. He also asks Fluttershy if they're still on for tea later, to which she says that she wouldn't miss it. Meanwhile, Discord confronts Tirek and easily captures him in chains and manacles.

Tirek says that he should have known that Discord would want to have Equestria all to himself, but Discord says he's not doing this for himself and that he's doing it for his friends, while adding that, "Just between the two of us, it's mostly for Fluttershy", and squees at the thought of her. However, Tirek appeals to Discord's former nature as the master of chaos, and offers to share Equestria when they take it over.
Discord finds himself tempted by the offer and accepts as the camera slowly zooms in on the picture of Fluttershy and Discord on his conjured bedside table.
