Toffee was everywhere in S2. You just couldn't see him.
He rescued Ludo from the Abyss and dropped him on Mewni.
He patiently guided Ludo to his new form, ie, the wand.
He carefully thwarted Ludo's every effort to use his new cosmic power effectively.
He pointed Ludo at Star as the source of knowledge, since his wand didn't work right.
Ludo, amazingly, figured out the book on his own.
He helped Ludo defeat Star and actually grab the book.
Once he had the book, he drained it of power to take over Ludo's body.
He then drained Queen Moon to get the power to take out the Magic High Council.
In doing so he freed ALL of Rhombulus's prisoners, among them Cosmic Bat and Queen Fucking Eclipsa.
Behind all THAT he's been draining magic for weeks, at least.
S2 was COMPLETELY about Toffee.
You just didn't see it until he revealed himself at the very end.
