The new force they have to fight against is the King Miraz. The world has become unkind to the the old Narnians, who have been reverted into the old ways, driven into the forest or killed. As Doctor Cornelius says, “it is you Telmarines who silenced the bests and the trees and the fountains, who killed and drove away the Dwarfs and the Fauns, and are now trying to cover up even the memory of them.” Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy called to help by Prince Caspian. There was almost a moment were Jadis was to be summoned but the people who sought to summon her were stopped before anything could happen. This time Peter defeats the evil King and Caspian is given the crown. Aslan also comes into save the day in this story. By freeing the river god and causing a flood of water to come toward it the bridge breaks and the battle is won. This establishes him as a key player in most of the good verses evil Narnia.

The that comes is different than the evil in the previous. Even though Jadis is the evil twice how she is evil is different. She goes from more of threat to an actual problem.
