This is EPIC. Fluttershy wrestling a bear, Rainbow Dash dropping the rainbow nuke, Rarity's couch... icon-hotrod.gif And of course, the many crazy antics of Twilight. Man, I missed this show during the summer.

Also, in one shot, we see Twilight and the others from above (first time, I think) - and that answers our old question - yes, ponies have cute mark on both sides. icon-hotrod.gif

And hey, they even put Derpy in the opening!

Who are those ponies riding below her? Can't remember seeing them in any previous episodes.

Nope, they are new. I bet we'll have some "Old Ponies' Home" scene in an upcoming episode.

Man, must say, the huge pile of ponies (including the Mayor) all surrounding Big Macintosh will lead to a lot of fanfics of 'that' nature. But regardless, that scene was hilarious. Loved how Derpy gets her eyes derped back again once the spell is dispelled.

And besides all the fun in the episode, Celestia's talk at the end and the whole lesson was a quite heartwarming one. As a kid, I have been a model student myself, and I know what it feels like to be thinking that you have let your teacher/mentor down... when in truth you were just over-reacting.

Okay, that was awesome. The Sonic RainBomb did it for me, as well as FS wrestling a bear. I like how Spike saved the day. Big Mac is golden, as he is every time we see him. And I actually really like Angry Celestia. We need more of her.

Of course, this was an important episode, because we can not get a lesson in every episode for the EI rating, without forcing Twilight to be in every episode.

Any idea where this goes in the timeline? I think summer, possibly before Dragon Shy. They don't seem to know eachother as well as in the DisQord Saga, and Fluttershy is still phobic of everything (according to Twilight)
I had a better signature... then it ran away. MLP card trade list. MLP blind bag trade list.

And of course Celestia was awesome. Now she actually flies and even jumps.

It's not the first time she's flown. But it is the first time she's teleported.

But when she appeared, it was like an old 80's family-friendly alien movie, particularly ET when the ship returns for him. She's just throwing beams of light everywhere like air-to-ground search lights.

I'd say sometime in late/mid-spring. Possibly even after Winter Wrap-up. The weather's warming-up, the skies are clear and sunny. Why wouldn't they want to invoke the right of Spring Fever and have a picnic?
Also, Twilight's mind was slipping. She clearly wasn't having rational thoughts.

I still question why Dashie didn't have a crash helmet on. It doesn't paint a very good image for kids.

Well, that was rather jarringly slapstick at points.

Pluto is now ignored, but the name still sticks.

Cosplay maybe? Show and tell snap on wings? A bigger Celestia fangirl than Twilight? Sneaking into Magic Kindergarden to spy on the unicrons?

If she's a pegaspy, she needs a new name.

Fake horn maybe? Or Twilight's imagination making her an alicorn? She wasn't really thinking straight throughout most of the episode.

Cloudsdale is sending pegaspies to infiltrate the Canterlot education system and learn the secrets of Celestia's School for Gifted (and Remedial) Unicorns.

Holy CRAP.

This show just took acid.
And went to a very good place. Although Fluttershy's Bear Mistreatment looked a lot like Sibsy's work.

I really enjoyed this one. The updated opening was good; it was about time the CMC were included in it. The facial expressions were priceless, and this definitely tops Swarm of the Century for how deranged we've seen Twilight. There were some seriously creepy vibes in her scene with the Crusaders, though, lol (unfortunately, a bit reminiscent of a certain fanon incarnation of Celestia)... and materializing inside the ball and destroying it seems almost like something Discord would do. She seemed extremely comfortable with teleporting in this episode, whenever it took place. I wonder if that kind of unhinged state of mind is one of the things that's more conducive for performing that kind of unusual magic. The Dinky and Ruby sightings were welcome, too; I hope we see more of both this season.
