After their breakup in Season 1, the members of the God Squad find themselves at their lowest points. Shining and Cadence are divorced, Celestia and Luna aren't speaking, and Tydal is in self-imposed exile.
But when they, along with Chrysalis, are transported halfway around the globe, they find their good names have been tarnished and everypony believes the worst of them. The five immortals (and one unicorn stallion with more sanity than the five gods put together) must find a way back home and reclaim what is rightfully theirs.
Of course, with pirates, international thieves, communists, flying reindeer, zebra warriors, and door-to-door salesponies all standing in their way, the trip back home will not be easy.
The sequel to the wildly popular fic The God Squad, Season 2 proves that if you keep paying attention to this story the author will never stop milking it.
