"The Race for the Realm" is a Season 2 episode of the Disney Channel animated series, Elena of Avalor.[1]


Elena gives us a summarisation about the events of Realm of the Jaquins and "The Scepter of Night".

Mateo and Elena, Mateo, Naomi, and Gabe are discussing the riddle to the next piece of the Scepter of Night: In the Valley of Stars, find the Sun that sparkles inside the moon.During the discussion, Elena flashes back to the moment Shuriki took over Avalor. After being snapped out of it, Elena declares that she must deal with Shuriki. Naomi assures her that they will after they get the pieces of the Scepter of Night first. Migs soon figures out that the next piece of the Scepter of Night is in Vallestrella since Vallestrella means "Valley of the Stars". Before setting out, Mateo points out that they should have the Staff in the Royal Treasury first and Gabe agrees with him. This causes an arguement within the group.

Elsewhere, Shuriki's group has also figured out that the second piece of the Scepter of Night is within the Realm of the Jaquins. Victor and Carla insist that Shuriki make them malvagos now, to which she reminds them she can't without a wand. Carla reminds her that Fiero can, only for Fiero to declare the Delgados unready to become Dark Wizards.Fiero also reminds Shuriki that they will need a Jaquin to get inside Vallestrella. Shuriki, due to her hatred for them, is appalled at the thought of riding a Jaquin while Fiero is merely concerned if they will find one willing to take them to Vallestrella. Hearing this, Victor tells the two sorcerers that he knows an outlaw resourceful enough to help them in that regard. The group then sets out to meet him.

Back in Tepet Muul, Elena's group is still arguing about what to due. Elena breaks up the arguement by sending Mateo and Gabe back to lock the Staff up in the Royal Treasury and she and Naomi head toVallestrella. Back with Shuriki's group, they are outside a cave that belong to the outlaw, who Victor reveals to be Troyo. Suddenly, they spot Mateo and Gabe flying by on Migs and Dulce. Realing that Elena's group split up, Shuriki orders the Delgados to go after the boys while she and Fiero go after the girls. Victor tells her they will never be able to catch up to the boys much less get the Staff as they are riding Jaquins. Carla replies they'd be able to if they get made into malvagos. Agreeing with her, Shuriki orders Fiero to make Victor and carla Dark Wizards. When Fiero expresses doubt, Shuriki simply tells him to do it. Fiero casts a spell that turns the Delgados in malvagos. Victor tells the sorcerers "You won't regret this." and he and Carla climb on the carriage. Carla casts a spell that causes the carriage to go around in circles. Fiero smacks his forehead with the palm of his hand and groans to Shuriki "I regret this alreay." before casting a spell that sends the carriage after the boys. 

Meanwhile, Elena and Naomi enter Vallestrella on Skylar and Luna respectfully. Naomi is amazed by all the sights while Elena asks Skyler what Sun that sparkles inside the moon means. Skylar tells her he doesn't know but that he has some friends who might and leads them to them. On the way Elena has another flashback to the day Shuriki took over. Skylar snaps her out of it and introsuces her to his friends: The Flaringos. Skylar introduces Elena to their leader: Zuni. Elena explains the situation and the Flaringos agree to help. Back in the Ever Realm, Shuriki and Fiero meet Troyo. Shuriki tells him they need Jaquins so they can get into Vallestrella. Troyo tells her he will help-for a price. Shuriki promises to make him King of the Jungle when she takes over Avalor if he helps her. Troyo agrees and leads her and Fiero to Cruz and his twin sister Vestia. Back in Vallestrella, Elena stress the urgency of stopping Shuriki. The Flaringos tell her that if keeps letting the darkness of the past keep entering your head you will mess up your future. 

They arrive at the spot where the sun sparkles inside the moon where the find the Mount of the Scepter of Night and a grumpy Butterfrong, who helps hem get the Mount so that they'll leave, They also find the next riddle: When you reach the highest of heights, the Jewel of Night will will be in the clasp of your claw. Luna deduces that the Jewel of the Scepter of Night is in the claw of the Jaquin statue on Monter Grande Garra, the tallest mountain in the Realm of the Jaquins. Elena sets off there. Meanwhile, Shuriki and Fiero arrive in Vallestrella and learn from the Flaringos that Elena's group has the second piece of the Scepter of Night and are on their way to the third. Back in the Ever Realm, The Delgados have caught up to Mateo and Gabe. Carla conjures a purple tornado that enables her and Victor to take the Staff from the boys.

Back in Vallestrella, Elena and Naomi have found the Jewel of the Scepter of Night. Suddenly Shuriki and Fiero appear causing Elena to have yet another flashback. The flashback makes Elena give in to her desire for revenge and go after Shuriki, only to overuse her Scepter. Fiero overwhelms Naomi and takes the Jewel. Shuriki appears and takes the Mount from Naomi, who falls off a cliff. Elena and Skylar save her while Shuriki and Fiero escape. Mateo and Gabe appear and reveal what happed to them. Back in the Ever Realm, Shuriki's group has reunited. Shuriki reunited the three pieces and gains the Scepter of Night. Fiero tells her he must teach her how to use it to which she tells him "What are you waiting for?" Meanwhile, Quita Moz appears before Elena and tells her she can still beat Shuriki if she masters all of the Scepter of Light's powers. Elena then leaves with Quita Moz.


  • This was formerly a Season 1 episode, but was later produced as a season 2 episode.
    • Although the production code is 210, this tweet later accounted that the "Race for the Realm" would be a sequel to Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins.(I don’t think this is a sequel and the tweet never said anything about a sequel I checked all of it.)
  • Mario Lopez will star in this episode. [2]
