Folks seem to be expecting some Labyrinth references with this one. I'd be down for that, no not as much as an Overlook dig...

...and that was awesome. Worth avoiding spoilers for, and worth getting up at 5:45 am for.

Though I'll never be able to look at unicorn horns the same way again. Thanks for that, Princess Celestia...

Funniest thing is that this episode was a hold-over from season 1 by HUB.  They made this before the fandom.  Without any fandom input they just thought "What if we had Q on our show?"

Actually, no, in the interview with Equestria Daily ( http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/exclusive-season-2-audio-interview-with.html ), Jayson Thiessen - the Supervising Director and now Showrunner - mentioned that it was always intended for Season 2. It's just they got the greenlight for Season 2 before Season 1 was over, and because they wanted to keep a lot of the crew the same, they went straight into producing Season 2 after finishing Season 1.

Although you are right about no fandom input. Lauren Faust told ED that they were already working on this premiere episode when the Brony thing started to take off (http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/exclusive-season-1-retrospective.html.)

Great opening episode. My girl Fluttershy still shows she's resistant as can be to everything; Discord had to flat out get frustrated and cheat on her (kinda sorta Rainbow Dash as well, but he didn't seem to be trying as hard with that one). And Discord made for an excellent villain, probably my favorite of the show so far. He's got the perfect voice and style for it, even if I don't much care for his physical appearance (and full disclosure, I'm not a Star Trek watcher and had no idea who the actor was before I watched the episode). Also, CMC's ruin everything. As usual.

Like everypony else, I can't wait for next week now.

They even did the correct wipe at the end.

Next new episode won't air until October 15th, apparently, but in the meantime - Rumoured future Season 2 screenshots! Holy crap!

Seriously though, good to finally see her again. Now all we need is a good reason for her season-long absence.
