So, the Season Two Opener...

D'Oh! The Cutie Mark Crusaders unleashed Discord! Those three are like the Jar-Jar Binks of MLP:FIM.

Speculation Time! I wonder if Nightmare Moon is the Anti-Luna in the same way this episode showed us the Anti-Pinkie, Anti-Applejack, Anti-Rarity, Anti-Fluttershy, and Anti-Rainbow Dash.

I also notice that Twilight was the only pony who didn't get inverto-zapped. How would you show "not-magicness," anyway? By having her only engage in mundane and unimpressive behavior? With her horn gone anyway, I imagine it would be hard to tell the difference.

-The ( SPOILER )

PS: Discord totally cheated. Make a rule, then coerce (via mind-control) someone into breaking it so you can say you've won? In law enforcement, that's called "entrapment!" But then, he's Discord, did anybody expect him NOT to cheat?

PPS: Just for jamesbarrett: Pinkie does Maramelldansen!

A couple of ideas on that score...

1) It might be that nobody's got in a fight near the statue before. I mean, how often do people break into a wrestling match at the museum? Of course, it has been a thousand years, so possibly...

2) It might also be that the expenditure of power from the Elements of Harmony in season one wore off the spell that sealed discord into the statue. And THEN the CMC came along and fought at the statue...

3) Celestia isn't that great with the whole 'Sealed away forever' thing...

This is why you seal stuff away FOREVEEEEER and then toss it into deep space. Or the sun. Which is part of her job.

Plus, if she'd tossed it into deep space, we could have ended up with the following: http://willdrawforfood1.deviantart.com/art/Discord-and-Picard-258126968

Celestia openly gave you part of the answer. If you didn't catch it go back and watch the castle hallway sequence again.

I would bet that it's a combination of what Celestia said - the transfer of the Elements of Harmony to the mane 6 from Celestia and Luna weakened the spell - and the JarJar Mark Crusaders fighting in front of the statue.
