WHY MUST ALL EPISODES DEAL WITH THINGS PROPHESIED AS THE END TIMES?!

Rarity got her Canterlot Shop, the CMC got their Cutie Marks, and now this. How long has this been planned for again? The first merchandise for this foal was like years ago or something, right? Seriously, if this baby is born and Rainbow Dash joins the Wonderbolts before season's end, stat panicking!

Sounds like a good job to have, well paying, and they've already proven they can do it for adults as well, with Troubleshoes.

Anyway, new episode! The One In Which Pinkie Knows!

The One Where Pinkie Knows:

- Meanwhile, fillies in Afriquestria are starving.

- The hectic life of a cake caterer.

- GAZE UPON YE GOD AND DESPAIR.

- We're not even a minute into the episode and you hit us with that bombshell?

- I get the feeling this episode will not be taking itself very seriously.

- First pony problems.

- Is the episode going to be a lesson in marking spoilers?

- Pretty sure you can discard that pacifier, unless you want the filly interacting with alligator oral bacteria.

- Since when is Pinkie Pie a 'miss', Rarity?

- Eeeew. Now the baby will be contaminated by eldritch saliva.

- "Oh, that silly pony and her childhood complexes."

- In case it's not obvious already, Pinkie Pie will be winning the rapeface contest.

- Never challenge Pinkie Pie in an exposition contest.

- Context!

- Because adult married men love nothing more than be treated as a child by their siblings.

- This episode in a nutshell.

- How do you even keep those ants alive, or feed them? Or have them breathe?

- YOU HAD ONE JOB, SPIKE.

- No witnesses, no crime.

- Just what kind of violent childhood idols were present for Shiny's pre-teen years?

- Everyone's avoiding the 'adult manchild' in the room.

- "My comments have absolutely no double meaning for the current situation."

- Fluttershy's not letting you out of this plot that easily.

- Holy crap, Rarity, when did you become a secrets nazi?

- "Why must all my friends demolish my property?!"

- Pinkie Pie's plan is pretty much the same as those waiting for Fallout 4.

- "You're so full of bullshit, Mr. Cake."

- We're approaching critical lampshade/meta levels!

- It's not easy being pink.

- Do not question the Pink One's control over the warp.

- Pinkie Pie is currently suffering from Spike-itis: The condition of the universe aligning to ruin your day.

- Having a pony with the same color and hair as you seems like a serious problem when you consider identity theft.

- In a few days, that roof will crumble and cause impossible rebuilding expenses for the owner, prompting a resurgence of the booze habit.

- Applejack is carrying giant cherries now?

- Equestria confirmed for crossbow weaponry.

- The secrets nazi frowns upon your shenanigans. Meanwhile, the home-owner is fearing the Pink One might commit home invasion.

- When you're a melting pot of mental complexes, it's easy to get accustomed to insanity.

- Why would you eat the stalk and core?

- Moral of the story: Never promise anything unless you get off on chores and ulcers.

- "What? No, it's a peni-I MEAN YES BABY BOTTLE."

- CONTEXT, THE CONTEXTENING!

- Jeez Featherweight, it's like you're trying to be murdered by a pink sociopath.

- Being an interrogator in Equestria would be a hilariously easy job.

- WACKY INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING TUBE PONY!

- At least they're not getting leek'd.

- This, kids, is what's known as a complete mental breakdown.

- "Except I totally will judge, because secrets nazi."

- Pinkie Pie regrets skipping her medication today.

- Plot saved! Now Pinkie can rest easily knowing- oh wait, there's still 8 minutes left.

- How do they even know she's pregnant? She looks thinner than before, even!

- [Geeky Horse Noises]

- Such snark, Pinkie Pie!

- Pinkie Pie becomes a lot less fun when the crack-cocaine withdrawal symptoms kick in.

- AJ is apparently unfamiliar with things like 'basic education'.

- Is she allergic to leaves now?

- Everyone's tired of Rarity's bullshit.

- Mayor's hyped.

- You do realize this is a circular building and you'd be spinning in a circle?

- "I KNOW ALL YOUR SECRETS!"

- Ahh, the tried and true file retrieval method of 'smash your face into it'.

- AJ confirmed for non-spore/mitosis procreation, and adorable.

- What, it's not Sofa & Quills?

- The Pink One cares not for your 'home invasion' laws.

- "It's almost like you've invaded and robbed others of their things before!"

- Unleash the silly faces!

- Congratulations, you're old, unmarried, and still a virgin!

- The Pink One mocks the Necromorphs for their weakness of form.

- Moral of the story: Doing other favors will make you miserable.



TLDR stuff:

- Baby! Kind of expected, but surprising that it's spilled so, well, early.

- Ponies have pregnancy tests, apparently.

- Derpy sighting! Now with Dinky in immediate vicinity to her.

- So much meta/4th wall breaking from Pinkie. A solid, silly episode for her. Animators went out of their way with all the faces and sillies.

- Rarity apparently calls Pinkie 'Miss Pie' now?

- Shiny confirmed, as per comic canon, as a geek with troubling childhood idols.

- The episodes moral appears to be... don't spoil/leak pony episodes or you'll ruin others fun and enjoyment? Okay...?

- The only truly 'weird' part of this episode is Rarity's sudden SERIOUS BUSINESS regarding the secret-keeping. Might be just her over-dramatic tendencies, though.

The 'baby merch' was technically as old as three years ago. Judging by the episode lineup remaining, the Wonderbolts seems unlikely, barring the finale episodes, as does the sudden 'birth', since Cadence is nowhere near the 11-month period. For the already confirmed Season 6, though...

More things to watch out for: Fluttershy's family/brother, Rainbow Dash's mother/other family, Scootaloo's family, surprise mane-six marriages/ships/romances, Rarity's 'Him', 'years from now in happy future' episodes, flashback-clip episodes, Celestia becoming Nightmare-Moon version of herself, Derpy family reveals, more Zebra/other races reveals, Discord's or other villain's pasts, Grogar as a villain, return of Sombra/Chrysalis, Starswirl the Beared info, and finally, the big-whopper that is Applejack's schrodinger's parents.

The rest of Pinkie Pie's family is notably getting an episode soon...

One thing I just noticed while watching- the song playing when Pinkie is doing the deliveries sounds like a remix of the Candy Mountain song from Charlie the Unicorn.

I think that was a pretty great episode, I feel like I enjoyed it more than the last few recently. And I think it might be my all around favorite Pinkie Pie episode, which I usually find a little tiresome.

Inb4 the people who actually post useful thing sin this thread: MLP shows us the meaning of holiday traditions in the newest episode, by following the most important tradition of all- Starting Christmas in October. Seriously, why is this one airing now?

Its good though. The plot is pretty easy to guess from the start, but the gags you'd expect manages to be stretched via Pinkie Pie family-ness.

BIG THING! Pinkie is a twin sister to Marble pie. Also, Maud returns with a few classic lines ("They're all about rocks.").

The rest is pretty cut and dry. Some good reaction faces from this one, though, especially from Limestone.

Well, guess it's time to post useful things in this thread. The latest episode seems to imply either that the chronology of Equestria is wholly out of whack, that time shenanigans are happening, or that the show creators are saving the finale episodes for the Christmas Season (instead of the actual Christmas episodes).

This season had quite a few 'game-changers' in the middle of it, so they might have been forced to arrange them as such to avoid 'spoilers' leaking in from other episodes (such as the CMC's cutie marks - the leaked Halloween episode would have spoiled them if they didn't wear full-body costumes, and Applebloom has hers in this episode).

Happy Hearth-mas! Have some embed/pony.

Hearthbreakers:
- I call bull on the chronology of Equestria. Unless time travel is already involved.

- Luckily, Pinkie Pie did not suffocate inside a chimney, like most chimney-sweeps and chimney-owners tend to.

- She normally uses those dolls for shipping.

- Let's the get early exposition out of the way, why don't we?

- All aboard the daww train!

- HOW DARE YOU HAVE DIFFERING FAMILY CUSTOMS!

- Hang on, did they show off the episode moral already?

- What else could she have given you?

- Yay, movie references I recognize!

- Applepie confirmed for canon.

- I thought you were the element of Honesty, AJ.

- A recap of the previous Hearth's Warming Eve episode, sponsored by your local capitalist government.

- "And we never questioned our immortal leaders presence on them ever again."

- And thus they did the same things and nothing interesting truly happens in the episode. The end.

- ASSUMING APPLEPIE. WE UNIFY AND BECOME ONE, Y'ALL.

- The narcotics squad would like a word with you, Pinkie.

- And thus, AJ's mind was forever shattered by the eldritch truths displayed by the Pink One.

- Enter the rockstar.

- Why not go for diamonds if hardness is what you desire?

- It's easy to have flawless decorations when you're a geomancer.

- Hm, let's see, it's AmishDad, AmishMom, NotBabs, and NotFluttershy.

- "I would speak normally, but my mind has been warped by the King in Yellow."

- Oh, you silly old people and your offending people around you.

- "I smoke 50 cigs a day to keep this voice!"

- She has seen too much from the Pink One to dare speak.

- Well, I'm sure that rock will be wholly unimportant for the rest of the episode.

- "Welcome to disappointment."

- AJ will be damned if she's denied booze on Hearth's Warming Eve.

- Is Pebble committing cannibalism?

- ELEMENT OF HONESTY, EVERYPONY!

- The stages of nope.

- Igneous is too busy asserting his superiority to notice Limestone is in fact a sadistic socipath.

- Man, AJ is such a lightweight.

- "Allow us to show you just how hard you suck at art."

- DeviantArt in a nutshell.

- The Pink One has decreed: Thou shall be shipped and canon.

- Team geriatrics it is!

- "And we're totally not going to have romantic relations in private if we're not."

- This is less rocks and more 'unfathomable wealth of magical energy crystals'.

- "The stones did not decree your death, so you were spared our usual sacrificial rituals."

- NO, SHOW, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS.

- Maud confirmed for TF kinks...?

- Time for the Silly Pony to save these uncultured savages with the power of Capitalist-fueled holiday traditions!

- How is Applebloom not suffocating sleeping like that?

- No context.

- The family does not look fondly to the sleep-deprived days of the past, when Pinkie was around.

- YOU DUN GOOFED, SILLY PONY.

- It's sad that Limestone is legitimately the only one who could run the farm properly.

- THE ROCK GODS WILL PUNISH SUCH HERESY!

- Maud has decreed: The silly pony must be punished via Deus Ex Machina.

- "Unless it involved shoving her hoof into mouths, bucking things, property damage, sillyness-induced-injuries, and the countless times she hurt somepony but learned a moral about it."

- "This could take TENS OF MINUTES of work!"

- The rarely seen consequences of shipping: Mental merging.

- Emphasis on 'thinks'.

- Unleash the feels!

- Just an ordinary, dragon-egg-shaped rock, found in a dragon's lair. Certainly not a source of draconic powers. Nope.

- If this weren't a cartoon, that 'gift' would have horrifically crushed AJ's skull.

- When in doubt, assault those in charge of public transport and force them to obey your whims.

- Morals, get!

- The NotBabs approves.

- AJ is very bad at Christmas Voodoo rituals.

- THE PINK ONE APPROVES OF THIS NAUTICAL VESSEL. THY FATES ARE SEALED IN BLOOD.

- "Pinkie Pie, that rock almost broke my skull, neck, and/or spine in the train."

- When in doubt, reuse jokes from previous episodes!



So, this episode teaches us a lot of things about the Apple Family! Namely, that they're all freaks of some sort.
- Maud returns, showing off her expanded knowledge of all things mineral, and revealing that she has a TF/rock kink.
- Limestone Pie! Her cutie mark is a lime and pair of salt-rocks. Ergo, she's bitter and salty, and has a power high from running the 'farm'.
- Marble Pie! She's a worthy contender with Fluttershy on the shyness-daaaaw scale. Her cutie mark is marbles and she is adorable and immediately got shipped by Pinkie Pie.
- Igneous and Quartz Pie! They're stereotypes, and apparently married through bloodstone circles 'choosing stones'.

As for other things:
- Malt Cider is a thing, confirming alcoholism as a thing!
- Seems the family is less 'farmers' and more 'miners', and includes arcane glowing crystals in their 'agriculture'.
- Applepie and/or MarbleMac are a thing! Which is then immediately put to debate due to the 'cousins' issue!
- The episode has more morals than usual, including 'not everything about presents', 'don't force personal rituals onto others', and 'everyone has different customs and they may seem weird but there's usually a reason for it'.
- Still no explanation what spawned the two Royal Sisters and made them part of the Equestrian flag.
- The Pie familiy may in fact be gaining cosmic powers from the Holder's Bolder (which is obviously some sort of dragon egg thingy). The proof? They eat rocks, which is a trait only dragons could consider part of a 'normal' diet.
- A few jokes are repeated (Maud Poetry, Pinkie Hooves, rock-munching), which is slightly disappointing but also a nice reference.
- The whole scene of 'AJ ruins the day' is a bit awkwardly performed. The family outright refuses to participate with AJ's idea of 'rituals' (compared to the apples who at lest tried theirs), and Deus Ex Machina causes a major disaster with Holder's Boulder and pins the blame on AJ.

As with the previous nightmare night episode, costumes were great. Derpy wins as Princess Twilight Sparkle, though.

Post  Zarhon on Sat Nov 07, 2015 11:55 pm

Another fairly good episode! Discord always livens up the episodes, but this one had a rather interesting approach to the 'moral'.

What about Discord?:
- You shouldn't have pet-names for your compulsive disorders.

- Twilight would make an excellent videogame speedrunner or TAS-player.

- Spike seems very focused on grooming and spa activities. Is the matriarch-based society turning him soft?

- Welp, that was a short episode.

- Oh, apparently that intro was mandatory exposition.

- I can't tell if it's witchcraft or coincidence that the joke is about to be recreated many times timing.

- Nothing says 'Princess of Friendship' like getting your [s]indentured servant[/s] assistant to work a 72 hour shift with a 2 hours break. On a weekend.

- It takes skill to summon a pair of meteors via the power of fate-tempting.

- They've gone to plaid!

- Discord looks surreal on all fours.

- "Come play with us! Forever!"

- For once, turning into a giant snake helps!

- "Pay no attention to my painfully obvious passive-aggression."

- Spike is still hated by the physics, I see.

- Berry Punch feels very satisfied petting that bush.

- Moral of this episode: Never miss or exclude yourself from anything, ever, or you will regret it for eternity.

- Luckily, the sleep deprivation and self-inflicted fasting isn't quite as visible.

- The eye-roll of a champion.

- Vintage! Like black mold!

- No shame, Spike, it's hard to tell in this universe.

- Fluttershy, the show has a PG-Y rating already, you don't need to prevent Twilight from calling bullshit.

- That feels... forced.

- See, this is the part where one would normally scream in horror at the horrific transformation and loss of mobility inflicted upon oneself. But Fluttershy's too chill for that, and Rarity's too morbid.

- Is giving ponies an Arin Hanson double-chin a thing now?

- Fluttershy's laugh seems like it's coming from a different VA entirely.

- Spike is only a growth-spurt away from being able to eliminate his competition for Rarity.

- Happy little references!

- Are they smiling or being held at gunpoint?

- "U jelly, Purplesmart?"

- Hm, do pony weekends last three days?

- WHAT HAS SHIPPING DONEEEEE?!

- Good job, you ruing two whole jars of PB.

- Do not irritate the Princess that can disintegrate you.

- And then, she didn't.

- "I'm too well-written to have flaws!"

- Nothing like a chasm of denial to get you into the science mood.

- Spike is too young for this bullshit. Again.

- Pinkie Pie is all about the important things.

- Innuendos, all over the place.

- Great Scott!

- And thus, the continuity was saved to the courageous efforts of Princess buzzkill. For now.

- Twilight hates chaos butterflies.

- She's got him under her hoof, alright.

- Silly Applehorse, why worry about petty problems when you can fix them with the misuse of phenomenal, unlimited cosmic powers?

- Nothing like an agent of chaos to enforce clinical experiment conditions.

- I detect dishonest motives from the Pink One.

- "But mostly my enormous denial complex!"

- Discord just explained to us the 'observer' theory.

- Spike logic to the rescue!

- "Like why the universe hates me."

- Put on your tinfoil hats, it's about to get good.

- And thus, the servant is carried off to yet another misadventure.

- "AS THE LOCAL FUN OFFICER, I FIND THIS UNACCEPTABLE!"

- Eye-roll of champions 2: The return of the snark.

- "Pay no attention to the bones in the cauldron."

- Friends don't inspect plot points of other friends.

- The Yellow One is no more.

- Smooth and subtle as a burning brick to the privates.

- The Princess of Friendship, everypony.

- I don't know what's funnier, Twilight's matronizing tone, or the faces she's receiving.

- Twilight would either make the worst serial poisoner ever, or the best one.

- Nothing like selective denial of one's insanity to lighten up the mood.

- AJ is matching the bull with relevant insults.

- I can't tell if it's sad or funny how crazily certain she is in all of this.

- "It's not like he collectively brainwashed 5/6 of us via subtlety or outright force for nefarious purposes!"

- Pinkie likes her crazy-pony-juice.

- "I arrive with the final reference."

- Welp, you broke the magic pony. Prepare to have your innards become out-ards.

- "That's what livestream recordings are for."

- You wot m8?

- Moral of the episode: Discord is a bastard.  

- ...A bastard with a surprisingly good point.

- You dun goofed.

- Meme forcing 101.

- "A crazy pony that was this close to needing to be institutionalized for a quintuple ponycide."

- Is Pinkie's mane made out of plastic or bone tissue?

- Twilight contemplates death therapy for her tiny, easily-crushable friend.


So, important bits!
- Spike has a spa-relaxation fixation. He's pretty damn amusing this episode as the audience voice, eye-roller, snark-master, and 'the guy that should be listened to before you go doing insanely idiotic things'.
- Twilight is as dorky (or even dorkier) than usual, much to Spike's inconvenience. She's also pretty dang good at denial - up until she goes hopping over the line of logic into batshit-insanity. All of the episode's problems stem from Twilight being stubborn, in denial, refusing to show any sign of weakness, and taking an (insanely) clinical approach to understanding 'the joke'. In other words, very much like Dr. Leo's role in the name-referencing "What about Bob?".
- Discord is notably less amusing than in previous incarnations, possibly to enforce the 'you had to be there' effect onto the audience, though he gets a few references in. He also notably makes a precedent by not being in the wrong - his morals pretty much hits Twilight hard in the truth-zone. He may have been ultimately a bastard, but he did raise several good points and completely correct statements throughout, legitimately befriended most of the Mane Six with very little foul play involved. He did get a 'karmic' resolution for his few dickish moves, though.
- The moral of this episode ("You're allowed to feel bad for missing out on stuff, and shouldn't be resented for it or dwell on it", plus "You shouldn't be ashamed to hide your negative feelings, as nobody's perfect." and "A joke isn't funny for everyone, and explaining it is a bad idea.") is pretty jarring, as it comes from the 'troublemaker' and actually humbles the normally high-horse main character.
- Time travel is notably avoided as a potential solution to the plot, and as a future (heh) plot device they will readily use.
- Starlight Glimmer! She's still out there, spying on the gang.

New episode! This time about warfare, feuds, and hyper-intelligent animals!

The Hooffields and McColts:
- Fluttershy (and her book club) has an interesting taste in literature.

- Fluttershy confirmed for furry fan.

- "Oh, my ass is flaring up."

- How does she avoid getting robbed? Besides the army of deadly animals.

- FRIEEEEEENDS!

- Nothing like a magical kidnapping with a creepy grin to set the mood.

- Okay, now you're not even trying to be subtle.

- This is the part where you sloooowly back away from the crazed princess, Fluttershy.

- The science of shipping friendship!

- I can't tell if I should be terrified or impressed by her research prowess / booklust.

- "Like you always do - a cute dork."

- Hi Spike! Bye Spike!

- Sounds nature-y.

- "Are you saying I'm books without realizing it? That's books-apples."

- If there's anything kids these days are good at, it's carrying back-breaking amounts of books for educational facilities.

- And then Fluttershy had to go to the hospital for spinal injuries, including many months of rehab. Despite these, she would never fly and/or trot again. Cue happy credits.

- How is that balloon flying without a source of heat OR magic being used? Or never deflates?

- Nice summary of previous episodes there, Twilight.

- Moral of the episode: Skiddily-Boppy-Bo.

- Easy-to-miss scene here: Twilight apparently has Rainbow Dash's flying-hyper-awareness, or acquired Spidey Sense. Must be all those spidertwi fics.

- This is turning into a Monty Python sketch.

- Children in pony Africa are starving, you know!

- Stupid question, stupid answer.

- "I'm here to be cute."

- Twilight, stop being so meta with the obvious plot.

- Nothing like living in a self-made deathtrap during wartime to make you appreciate life.

- Oh suck it up, mice. Stuart Little went through more hardcore shit than you are about to.

- Silly PurpleSmart, 'reason' and 'rationale' are trigger words for fate.

- "Also, merchandising."

- "Four princesses, when there were only three for millennia? Seems legit."

- Cause you're butting your nose in other ponies plots?

- He's grinning because he crushed at least 1-3 Hooffields to death.

- Suddenly, the plot of 'Deliverance' happens.

- The family is very... blue. How very educational for young children!

- So, one family sucks at building but is good at farming, and the other sucks at farming but is good at building. GEE, I WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE END OF THE EPISODE.

- So, basically, these guys are complaining about free food they can't make themselves being thrown at them, and demolish the other family's buildings in retaliation. What assholes!

- "Have you tried turning the feud off and on again?"

- "Impartial Third Party". Famous last words if I ever heard any.

- Silly Twilight, it's not even 11 minutes into the episode yet.

- Twilight's learning to use her wings creatively.

- "We're actually murderous hillfillies, but we'll never dare say it on a kids show!"

- If anyone should be able to survive a shelling, it's a tortoise.

- Yes, that tiny bush will protect it from hay bales.

- Spoken like a true athlete.

- Well, we're at the 12 minute mark, so this plan clearly can't fail.

- The banjo pony is pretty chill.

- What a disaster, they're throwing food at the starving ponies.

- And it turned into a ballroom blitz.

- Sad Purplesmart is sad.

- Disney Princess to the rescue! Also, apparently animals that have a better generational-lore-transferred memory than two clans of ponies with access to written records.

- Don't mess with the God-Princess.

- The cupcake-wielding McColt has his priorities straight.

- Noooo not the flashbacks! They're even in sepia tone!

- "Needless to say, they dun goofed."

- "Yup, this amalgation of disease-causing bacteria and filth are delicious."

- More references!

- That Mccolt Mare feels awfully bad about her attempted ponycide now.

- Moral of the story: War. War never changes.

- Drat, they're repeating the plot.

- Animal UN to the rescue, again!

- Fluttershy has had enough of your [BUY SOME APPLES].

- Finally, the cursed circle of in-family marriage can end.

- How convenient their flaws are fixed by each other's strengths.

- Twilight is so hype for season 6.


TLDR stuff
- FS and TS's cutie map episodes! As before, it seems one of the duo will have an idea to fix it, but fail, and the other's natural talent will come through (then get finished with the help of the first).
- Ponies confirmed for siege warfare.
- The moral is pretty straight - don't do blood-feuds, guys. Also, war ruins lives and cooperation is better.
- The animals are apparently geniuses. They understand the nuances of literature, and they have a lore-based memory spanning generations (remember, the feud started before any family members were so plentiful) with no assistance from written sources.
- Twilight is pretty meta in this episode, with re-using previous 'solutions', and researching, and poking fun at future/past episodes.
- Fluttershy as usual is adorable, and takes some of Spike's job of being minor comic relief.

Penultimate episode before the finale!

The Mane Attraction:
- "I'll be damned if apples aren't part of this non-apple event."

- Season 6 will feature AJ as the ultimate roadie.

- Just how many trees are murdered in the name of Twilight's booklust?

- Pinkie Pie here to remind us who the main characters are, and Spike.

- Too bad the Pony Beatles disbanded a few episodes ago.

- That's a stupid name, even by pony standards.

- SHUN THE NONBELIEVER!

- She knows.

- Don't explain the joke, AJ.

- Let's avoid the question of why she has a picture of a pony's butt.

- THE PINK ONE IS DISPLEASED BY THE WORK THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED BY THIS MISINFORMATION.

- "Turns out, 'infinite money' is a necessity."

- Rarity's right there, AJ.

- WARNING: FILLYJACK FEELS FROM THIS POINT ONWARDS. PREPARE FOR CARDIAC ARRESTS.

- That outhouse has no privacy.

- And thus, a mud fixation was born.

- Rarajack begins.

- Songtime! That's a pretty boss anthem.

- Dat cutie mark.

- DAWS REACHING CRITICAL LEVELS!

- The face of fandom.

- "Hi, I'm not-Gaga."

- Are they walking over Pinkie Pie? And where did the cameras come from?

- SHIP CONFIRMED.

- Ship debunked. At least Lyra's adorable.

- "As the official asshole of the episode, it is my duty to make every single word from my mouth feel like anthrax."

- "I can't be a PROPER ass without my imported goods."

- Pinkie, what... this is a kids show.

- Did... was that a cherry innuendo just now?

- [POP CULTURE INTENSIFIES]

- "Yes AJ, I know he's an asshole. I'm not the audience."

- "I also cosplay as pony Jesus."

- Yes, AJ, we know what a good person is supposed to act like.

- Meanwhile, at Satan...

- NOBODY SAYS APPLES IN NEGATIVE CONTEXT NEAR AJ!

- Like any proud parent sister, AJ too will embarrass Applebloom in front of high-profile celebrities.

- You broke her.

- She's not a weeping angel, Applebloom. Probably.

- Nooo, the ship is sinking!

- That apple peeler is a chest-impalement incident waiting to happen.

- Well, talking didn't work... So let's try talking!

- Oh... I guess it's working.

- "Can I kiss your hooves a bit? I need to work on my groveling a bit."

- Magical recordings to the rescue!

- Music biz drama!

- And the badguy goes without karmic retribution?

- STAGE FRIGHT!

- Moral of the story: Be rich and famous, but don't hire assholes.

- Songtime! Part three!

- Laser show!

- SHIP REAFFIRMED.

- "Screw those contest winners, these kids get privileges!"

- And then Rara's hoof horrifically extends.

- SHIPPING OVERWHELMING!



TLDR facts:
It's really interesting to see how this show evolved from a simple 'slice of life' for little girls to the depiction of modern times (this is arguably the most modern depiction of the show yet, not counting Equestria Girls and their social media/smartphones) that it is now. Of course, the bronies helped - It's a question whether the show would depict an outright Gaga-level concert for a preteen audience (are they into that stuff? I'm old, I can't tell).

Pacing-wise, the episode gets through the 'problem' rather quickly and absolutely 'painlessly' (no unexpected problems or even misunderstandings - AJ sees a problem immediately, finds the root of it, and murders it with extreme prejudice), similar to the previous CMC episode - likely because they had to fit in a climactic song for the finish.

The moral of this episode is kinda mellow ('be true to yourself, don't be friends with people that will exploit/manipulate you'). AJ's characteristics of 'Regular Honest Jane Doe' seems to be her defining thing in the S5 episodes - her being 'common' saves the day somehow. Pinkie Pie is also fun and hype.

As for the song, they're... Well, they're good, and have absolutely stunning visuals and details (whoever thought of the glowing horns is a genius)... But that's just it - they're not memorable, or ear-worm-tastic as songs like 'Smile Smile Smile', 'Apples to the Core', or 'Cupcakes' were. Maybe it's just Pinkie singing bias.

I'm baffled that the episode's 'villain', Svengallop, essentially got away scot-free or without karma screwing him over - he's not fired, he quits, and nothing implies he's going to stop what he's doing (he can find another star - someone with music notes on their butt) or have a bad time out of it, and he even tries to make it bad for the heroine for 'removing' him, like an asshole parasite.

And of course, there's Rara (I wonder how 4chan is reacting to this...) / Countess Coloratura. Who... I would have to say is the most saintly pony we've seen in the show so far.

References and continuity are abundant (Pinkie's Beatles gig, Svenhoof's name, Gaga...), AJ shows off roadie sklls, Twilight has a new spell that totally won't be forgotten when it's required later.

Equestria confirmed for:
- Lasershows.
- Glow-horn concerts.
- Gaga-level pop phenomenons.
- Charity concerts.
- Imported luxuries.
- Summer camps without machete-wielders.

In regards to next episode, it's the finale two-parter, and there's already a preview commercial!

Finale episode spoilers below!:


So, let's see...
- Starlight Glimmer!
- Some kind of magical contract that is very important because of reasons!
- Portals! Time travel!
- Cloudsdale!
- Things going bonkers!
- AJ goes industrial!
- Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie go native/tribal/resistance force!
- Nightmare Moon!
- The cutie map is green!
- War! War never changes!
- Contract gets shredded, and that's bad!

I must ask.

Why is Pinkie a giraffe?

On a more serious note, this reminds me of Van Helen's contract, which demanded a bowl of M&Ms be provided backstage with all the brown ones removed, which unlike the episode, had a practical point to it.

The final episodes of the two-parter hath arrived!

The Cutie Re-Mark, Pt.1:
- Why do people still do presentations when nobody is good at them or likes to do them, or does them badly?

- College Education can be summed up as 'endless presentations'.

- "My OCD demands it!"

- Well, that was an incredibly boring intro. Surely nothing exciting or climactic can come out of this.

- YOU DUN GOOFED, SLIDE-SLAVE.

- "Long story short, blame Rainbow Dash for all our future and past misdeeds."

- Oh, hey there, subtle villain shot.

- Well, it's not subtle if you tell us about it, Twilight.

- Don't scare the Smarthorse.

- Gee, way to tempt fate there, Purplesmart.

- "Sup, bitches."

- By all means, stand still whilst magic bad stuff is happening.

- "Pay no attention to the butterflies on my chair. They are not symbolic for this episode."

- That seemed anticlimactic. Guess she failed her obvious time travel plot. Unless ponies start disappearing, it's somepony else's problem, right?

- YOU DUN GOOFED, DRAGON.

- The Pink One is late for the apocalypse party.

- "Oh right, I'm immune to deadly falls now."

- Why does Spike backpack with binoculars for a presentation in Canterlot, barring lecherous motives?

- Good summary, Spike.

- So, the spell that you just confirmed cannot go beyond a week, is now justified because it's on a piece of parchment, and will not be mentioned any further. LOGIC!

- Cloudsdale: Come for the clouds, leave as a splatter on the landscape below it.

- [Jaws theme intensifies]

- Surprised she didn't just brain her.

- Oh pipe up y'all, what's the worst that could happen now?

- This is the point where Twilight should start becoming transparent.

- Welcome to 'YOU DUN GOOFED, RED EDITION'. Population: Y'all.

- "I really liked that castle, you know."

- Fallout 4 players will feel familiar with this setting.

- WHEN IN DOUBT, TEMPT FATE!

- Welcome to the bread-house.

- They don't take kindly to fashion around these parts.

- Hope y'all like some industry. Even Carrot Top is in on it.

- Apples, apples never change.

- Right from the HonestHorse's mouth, Flutterdash is confirmed.

- Well, she certainly still seems like somepony with dead parents and/or war trauma.

- Yes, follow the clearly crazy ponies who might be part of the evil army.

- "And your parents are deeeee....lightful. Yes."

- Nothing like a mind-controlled WAAAAAGH to get in the megalomanic mood.

- You know, an army of nothing but infantry against both artillery AND air units isn't good for warfare.

- War-Torn Rainbow Dash sponsored by Deus Ex. Because she never asked for that wing.

- Brilliant war tactics: Push a rock on them!

- The rock-puncher division trains recruits by making them punch trebuchet projectiles.

- You'd think one country's worth of ponies would be easily defeated by EVERY OTHER NATION IN EQUESTRIA.

- Nice propaganda posters. And graffiti is a thing.

- "I'm making shit up as we're going along!"

- Well, you're 15 minutes into the first part of a two-part episode. Nothing can go wrong.

- GAME OVER. Try again?

- Gotta hand it to her, she is a cunning, trope-savvy bitch. Still made the mistake of gloating the whole plan.

- Isn't she supposed to sink at this point?

- Well, they're dead. If they haven't asphyxiated by now.

- You could have done that a minute ago.

- "Oh yeah, I have a servant I don't want dead."

- This is how you play Lawful Evil. Do the right thing! For the wrong, wroooong reasons.

- Starlight, your equality thing has gotten old.

- Twilight.

- Twilight, what are you doing.

- Twilight, staph!

- Starlight's VA nailed the 'sarcasm'.

- You went to the wrong apocalypse, motherbucker.

- "We're still not allowed to use the kill word."

- Nothing like death threats to set the mood for a happy outro!


The Cutie Re-Mark, Pt.2:
- LAST TIME, ON 'EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE'!

- Figures the green universe if full of dirty hippies.

- "Seems legit."

- Fluttershy is still out for blood, though.

- Black Magic Mare to the rescue!

- Hope you like being disguised in feces.

- Zecora should have taken the red pill.

- "But mostly, because it's written to be convenient for the plot with no explanation."

- EVEN THE HAT IS A LIE!

- You have a dozen spears. THROW THEM. IMPALE THEIR QUEEN WHOM THEY LITERALLY RELY ON.

- WAAAAGH!

- MAGIC FIGHTIN' TIME!

- Oh hey, you almost murdered her.

- Meanwhile, nobody is calling the magic police on this clear attempt at murdering each other.

- You just can't not dun goof, can you, Twi?

- Welcome to the blues universe.

- You can't stop here, this is wolf country!

- This is how Resident Evil starts! Do you WANT to be eaten by zombies?

- Wow, a universe that hates Spike more than usual.

- Oh hey, that rhymed. And, you're in trouble.

- Huh, apparently, being a Bat-pony is equal-opportunity employment. Or Rainbow had hers removed to fit the national standard.

- Time to negotiate with a monster!

- For an omnipotent evil ruler, she really sucks at sense motive checks.

- Now that's cheating.

- No time for a tourist visit to orange-ville.

- Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the absolute best gif AND face of the season.

- Do not question the plushie-verse.

- You're scraping the bottom of the apocalypse barrel, gray-verse.

- Twilight explains MOBA.

- Starlight doesn't believe in 'main characters'.

- Welcome to 'PS4-verse' - where everything is brown and gritty.

- HIGH STAKES JENGA!

- BEHOLD MY TINY GODLIKE POWERS, MORTALS!

- Someone's cray-cray-paranoid about the life-defining magical buttmarks that determine your destiny and future.

- That's not a problem, they can just use glue-oh. Oh my.

- "Because we're well written!"

- WORDS WILL FIX THIS!

- Fun fact: She should be falling to her death if she's focusing on that scroll.

- And there goes the true-villain of the episode: Irresponsible omnipotent reality-altering powers!

- Starlight is the elephant in the room.

- Turns out rainbows are the building blocks of the show.

- Just toss her into Tartarus, she'll be fine.

- Time for your execution!

- She's already six ahead of Discord. And her brainwashing was worse than Discords! How did that happen?!

- SONGTIME!

- Good thing she has multicultural-adaptation abilities with that hacks-level of magic.

- Moral of the episode: It's easy to make friends when most of them don't know how many apocalypses you almost caused, and that nobody could stop you.


TLDR stuff!

- Somehow, it's a lot less crazier than expected. But certainly 'threatening' and 'world changing', and cements the Mane Six as 'universal constants', and the universe literally depends on RD being awesome. Feels a lot like a Dr. Who episode, really.

- We get a glimpse of every 'what if' scenario involving the Mane Six losing/failing (excluding, ironically, the one of Starlight Glimmer succeeding in her own 'debut' plot, and a 'Nightmare Sun' scenario. Maybe season 6...), and they're pretty logical and grim/dark/grimdark.

- Starlight Glimmer really sells it this episode - being both snarky AND smarter than every other villain so far, having a good plan/plot that almost succeeds, having a good point/motivation... To the point of being stopped only by being talked out of it. She also seems to be flat out better at Twilight's original show role (magic things!). Which is worrying considering the ending.

- Sombra is still, well, voiceless, but certainly more threatening. As are certain other villains. Nobody is killed, of course, merely implied to be 'destroyed'.

- Starlight's backstory is certainly... weird. She didn't try to revisit the old friend? He stopped existing, or something...?

- Mane7, as a possibility? It's certainly... possible, now, and we know season 6 is a thing... It's a bit out of the blue, of course, but eh. She also seems capable enough to mingle with all of the Mane Six without issues (with access to both flying and magic).

- Flutterdash confirmed, by the Element of Honesty herself.

- Song is still un-memorable, if fitting.

- The 'what ifs' of the Mane Six are rather... Well, I expected more, somehow. Maybe I'm spoiled on crazy/awesome. The best is probably the Sombra-verse (cybertech replacements confirmed). And Batponies are apparently a Luna-specific thing, if RD's 'wing swap' is any indication.

- Good full-cast ending for the season!

For young children, if a friend leaves your life for any reason, chances are you aren't gonna meet each other again. And that's in a world with the internet. It is sure to be more of an absolution in Equestria. The vagueness of it all also allows for the application to any case where the friend is gone forever, but most notably Death (hello again Tanks For The Memories). This is why Twilight doesn't just reunite Starlight with her old friend, it'd ruin the catch-all application of the morale...

As for Mane 7, a possibility, and I understand why. In the show's dynamic, Twilight was originally the character who had to learn about the many aspects of friendship. But then, well, she did that. Twilight's appearances as a main character who experienced developed was little this season. Outside of the two-parters, you've got Amending Fences and What About Discord. Maybe some part of Party Pooped or something. Outside of that, she didn't do much. She mostly gave exposition, or did an unimportant thing that doesn't really develop her character, like keep an eye on Discord during the Gala, model a dress, sleep, find out she is gonna be an aunt, so on so forth. So you've got a character who now is built around exploring more complicated aspects of friendship, and a void for the learning of the basics. So enter Starlight. I guess Hasbro didn't want the writers to remove Sunset from the EG line of stuff or something. This all being said, I'm not feeling it, especially considering the skepticism the Mane 6 had against Discord for a good while, they seem okay to get chummy with the pony who stole their cutie marks and all that. Maybe it's a race or gender thing, I dunno...

Also, if Season 6 doesn't have a villain that causes famine/wastelands, I will be disappointed. On that note, I have to wonder exactly how the time travel spell worked with Starlight. She even says that it takes her back in time whenever Twilight uses it, but only Twilight is aware of the future. So what's up with that?

Also, I guess this is the end of the line. Goodbye Season 5 thread, wish whoever makes the next season's thread good luck on coming up with a good name for it...

I find it odd that in the first and second and others, they were able to deal with the likes of Nightmare Moon and Discord without the EoH, but are somehow stopped by Chrysalis and Sombra.  Did an alternate bunch of Element Bearers come into play?  Were Nightmare Moon and Discord stopped without the Elements?  Odd.

EDIT: I also find it odd that the only one who commented on Twilight being an alicorn was Rainbow Dash.  You'd think that was more noticable.

Without having finished the episode, I just want to chime in and mention how war torn Equestria has officially taken the show every place I ever wanted it to go. No dumb pastry fights. Actual war.

Wonderbolt combat flightsuits are the COOLEST.

EDIT: Aww, that didn't last long. Oh well.

REEDIT: I don't think that song was necessary. Seemed like an obligatory inclusion because all the other finales had one (or several). I appreciate that it was just one this time, at least.

I think Season 5 was a success. An overarching plot between the premier and the finale, a notable villain, and a lot of hype-inducing episodes. Including this one. I loved it, I found myself cheering for every cameo (including Flim and Flam- though I'm not sure how their future is worse than literally any of the others).

And now the hiatus, but honestly, for the first time since season 2, I feel like I'm going to be able to rewatch old episodes and really enjoy them. The show is in its prime, running full speed. I hope it lasts through the next season, at least, before the inevitable slow burn out...

She even says that it takes her back in time whenever Twilight uses it, but only Twilight is aware of the future. So what's up with that?
We still have the pretty awesome-looking Grogar as an old-gen villain that's yet to be revealed.

As far as the time travel goes...
1) It seems to be linked to whoever is holding/using the scroll (Twilight, and Spike), and goes through the portal itself. Starlight made herself automatically 'part' of the scroll spell, without needing to participate in the alternate versions of Equestria by being sucked back. It's also possible that the 'suck back' part was due to the Cutie Map trying to 'right a wrong'.

2) Starlight is very possibly dead, or in her equality town, in all the alternate dimensions.

I find it odd that in the first and second and others, they were able to deal with the likes of Nightmare Moon and Discord without the EoH, but are somehow stopped by Chrysalis and Sombra.  Did an alternate bunch of Element Bearers come into play?  Were Nightmare Moon and Discord stopped without the Elements?  Odd.

It might be that it's linking them by 'severity', in order. Sombra's version is war-torn, but they could win the war. But it doesn't account for the Changeling Invasion being a hair's breath from winning, or Flim & Flam being 2nd worst to a lifeless world (and something worse would follow that - the complete destruction of the planet?).

Sombra and Chrysalis are notable as they weren't beaten by the EoH - Sombra was beaten by Spike (potentially unhatched) and Cadence/Shining Armor, whilst Chrysalis was beaten by Cadence/Shining armor's (Twilight would need to free Cadence to ensure the 'love explosion'). Discord was befriend-able or even could have had a reformation spell cast, so that might have been a temporary crisis.

Tirek would have to have escaped from his prison and drained enough ponies, and none of the villains would allow that if they could (Discord outright stopped him originally).

Season 6-wise, we've still got a few things to find out about or see!
- Starswirl the Beared.
- Past villain origins (Chrysalis, Sombra, etc... Comics don't really count)
- Fluttershy's, Rainbow Dash's, Scootaloo's parents/family.
- AJ's parents, still AWOL.

Her parents are DEAAAAD.

I'm pretty sure that was officially implied way back when. Then again, death has yet to be a thing in the show Nevermind, that funeral happened, so death is a definitely a thing.

That's what I want to see from Season 6. Tank "Hibernating" was a lame cop out, let's see a real character death.

Season 7 can be Game of Thrones.
