Even Big Macintosh got in on it.

Macintosh as a burrowing dog thingy.....I'm glad it was Twilight he licked on the face and not Fluttershy. The shipping FlutterMac pics & fics are already in mass numbers as it is.

Meanie Fluttershy was the best, IMHO, followed by Rarity and his odd crush on 'Tom'.

Discord at first seemed genuinely sad to see Twilight disheartened, to me it seemed he quite enjoyed using her as a 'sparring partner' in his game.

Yeah, I was totally expecting things to go that way; Discord starting to repent or something.

Just because she says fabulous a lot, wears fake eyelashes, make up, and carries a fat cat, doesn't make Rarity a drag queen.

That was kinda... rushed. I finished watching it but it felt like it wasn't supposed to be over or something.

Other than that, still 1000 times funnier than Season 1 start and thus, atleast for me, a much better Season start overall.

Discord is SO RANDOM. Filling up a glass from the top down, drinking the glass instead of what's in it, and tossing it away with an Aqua Teen Hunger Force style explosion. And that's just in one shot. Did anyone catch who that fuchsia pony was that was going "Bliblibliblibliblibli" in the pan across Chaos-Ponyville?

Yeah I agree that this probably should have been a three parter, as it feels like 10 pounds of plot in a five pound bag. Discord's defeat felt really weak as we go from Twilight holding the idiot ball so she'd lose her colors, or Discord holding it so he'd be defeated. Everything betweeen those two were great and I did love the use of the letters, which really gave the lessons real purpose.

And Cherry's sneezing scene was hilarious too. icon-hotrod.gif Guess Twilight could have built up an exact replica of Ponyville in hours if the buildings were like those!

Also, nice useage of the "Rainbow Crash" nickname, by Fluttershy, of all ponies! (And on Spike, no less!) "Come on Spike, you are Rainbow Dash now!" icon-fire.gif Twilight, ever the control freak.

So adorable, I insta-d'awww'd~

It were little touches like that that made the episode. The cloud over Twilight, too~

When Twilight had to carry Tom into the house, I was wondering 'Will they ignore that it's bigger than the door or not?'... Well, they didn't ^^

Yep, someone on Ponychan just found it. So now we've got another new goofy character AND a new Looney Tunes reference!

Saluting Fluttershy is adorable. Will probably be my new avatar once better quality caps are available.

"I am just wondering if it is ok to hold you down against your will for a little while?"

Also, Rarity's "Let's never speak of this again" after she 'dumps' Tom. icon-fire.gif

Oh my, yes. And when NMM tasted the rainbow, too. Also, why the spoiler tags? This entire thread is specifically for spoilers.

In the rewatch, I realized what DisQordia was...it's the Dodo's Wackyland from Looney Tunes/Tiny Toons.


Yeah, the resemblance between them seemed to grow the more changes he made. Too bad Warner Bros. doesn't own My Little Pony, or they could've just banished him there instead of turning him back into stone, lol.

[*] Needed to be a three-parter. Both episodes seemed a little rushed


Yep, it really could've benefited a lot from being 3 parts. Maybe if these two eps had been left as the S1 finale, with a cliffhanger that was resolved in the S2 premiere. The comedy was great, as usual (I think my favourite bits were Fluttershy while she was being nasty), but the actual rise/defeat of Discord plot seemed very rushed. Twilight's restoration was well-done, but the others were cured a bit too quickly and without fuss. And Discord's actual defeat seems like it was just thrown in there at the end to wrap everything up. However, it's not like he doesn't know what the Elements are capable of (and he knew his spells over the mane 6 had been broken)... given the way he just sat there and told them to go ahead, it's almost as if he wanted to be re-petrified, or at least accepted it as necessary.

I almost wonder if he's come to understand moderation after all, and recognizes going back into the statue (whatever it's like in there; maybe he has some kind of "world" to himself), with the occassional break-out every once in a while for a bit of fun, as an acceptable compromise with a more ordered Universe. To me, anyway, this sounds like a better explanation than "well, we just needed to end the episode and banged it out in 2 minutes".

But hey, while the true God of Chaos is away, we'll always have our minor Spirit of Chaos to keep the candle burning...

Btw, Nayuki - any chance can you post a clear screenshot with Screwball or should we wait 12 hours till 1080 upscaled? Ep is kind of aired tho...
If... umm... that is ok with you of course.


Ooh, even better, is there a build of her in a less wind-blown state? I'm trying to whip up some fan art and I'm having trouble figuring out how her hair is supposed to sit naturally, and no idea what color her cap's bill should be.

I even can't predict how much art and fanfiction this will spawn... A lot.

Ha, Tom/Rarity/Applejack love triangle, y'mean? Hopefully the fact that one of them is a rock will keep it limited to joke fics and comics.
