I personally think the superhero thing is nice. I mean, it's pretty likely that it's Spike's dream and a one-time thing. There's also people saying that DeLancie's recorded lines were being done when it'd correspond to this episode number, so it can also be his doing. I think it's going to be pretty interesting, to say the least!

I don't really know what to think, but it seem fairly clear that Spike just woke up so dream sequence seen possible. Maybe it is some kinda eps he watched too many comic so he started dreaming about them or something silly.

I'm actually kinda disappointed that Luna has embraced her villainous past. She was all set to reintegrate as a kind princess... In other news, there goes the moral grounding of the New Lunar Republic. :fluttersad:

I still think that the Luna thing is a flashback, and Twilight is simply observing. The castle doesn't look like Canterlot, so it's probably hte one in the forest. She speaks of only one princess, and there's four by then, and she talks about somepony's light. I think she's referring to Celestia, who may be somewhere behind Twilight, right about to speak after the animatic we were shown ends.

So you don't have to worry.

This whole thread is spoiler, so using spoiler tag is kinda silly...

anyway. She clearly said "precious light". Which clearly refers to Celestia instead, and Twilight doesn't know where she is, doesn't know why Celestia disappeared, so it is quite obviously a flash back sequence.

The more interesting thing to think about is... why is Twilight being show a flash back sqeuence?

We already can tell Twilight was talking to Celestia previously, and cause Twilight said Celestia disappeared, so we can tell whatever reason, it have to do with Celestia. Maybe Twilight finally decided to ask about her and Luna and Celestia decided to show her. Perhaps to teach her a lesson or preparation or what not.

I guess we shall see.

Simple. Twilight is seeing the scene through Celestia's eyes. She's only along for the ride...

Agreed! That was a great season opener.

We have the elements of harmony effectively removed, Discord possibly up to something, and, most amazingly of all, a potential season-long story arc as they try to find the six keys!

This is shaping up to be one heck of a season! :pinkiehappy:

Oh yeah... and Derpy-spotted! At the end, during the Summer Sun Celebration, in the close-up crowd reaction shot, upper center, IIRC. Eyes not derped. :derpyt:

Now I have to ask: Are we going to do a week-long event of Everfree invading Ponyville? Or will we not do the canon-merge like we've done before?

I think it would be fun to have a little event about it, even if it's just about ponies running around and trying (to no avail) to figure out what's going on!

Hey! Can that beekeeper pony in today's episode be Honeybun's dad or brother? :pinkiehappy:

On another note, the Luna fans should be happy to see that's she's getting a LOT more acknowledgement this season. She's even in the opening!

And, in today's episode, in both instances where Rarity selects a tapestry to restore, it was Luna's.

Probably a family thing? Don't see why not.

If acting upon cannon being implemented 1 day after episodes air, then it is a bit late.

If we decided to fudge the time-line and do an event (which would be nice) we'd have to set up the rooms so everypony knows. So, having the weather engine display vines and room descriptions pointing it out and so on.

Since Episode 3 doesn't effect the population as a whole, just the main characters, it would be okay to push that back as a cannon event.

So therefor I propose we set the chat for 3 - 7 days, in an Everfree corrupted state as shown in Episodes 1 & 2.

This involves little more than setting the flavour text and weather patterns for each room to signify the state of the town.

Players can then roleplay as they see fit, using the events to create their personal history for the episodes.

I second the suggestion from the adorable zebra.

Honestly though, I think that would be pretty much perfect. Things like unicorn magic failing and lightning clouds keeping pegasi mostly grounded... Earth Pony Power!

Seeing as we still have The Running of the Leaves, Heathswarming, and New Years to do this month, will we ignore one of those? Or wait to do the event?
