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!

Well, since Friendship is Magic, not-Friendship would be the inverse of Magic, so obviously he doesn't have to do anything to Twi, just her friends.

Also, Flutterbitch's tailslap. OMG! And Rarity /almost/ got away. ALMOST.

Best thing in the world though is a toss up between Discord being FREAKING AWESOME as an antagonist, and Pinkie Pie being totally onboard with Chocolate Milk Rain. CHOCOLATE RAAAAAAAAIIIINNNN!

Except that Twilight is the element of magic, the same way RD is loyalty, AJ is honesty, etc., so it is inherent to her. As shown in "Look Before You Sleep" et al., it's Twilight's friendship that brings the others together regardless of their differences and forms the bond between them.

Going with that idea, I'd expect the inverto-Twilight to be the one who tried hardest to break them apart, which could be pretty tough to resolve in a single two-part episode...

Pinkie is totally down with Discord, too. That's how you know that chaotic isn't the same as evil :) Pinkie likes him so there's got to be SOME saving grace to 'im. Though both Pinkie and Rarity are gonna be REAL mad at him when the dust settles.

Rarity's self-awareness and determination are awesome! She fought HARD not to fall to the weakness she knows she has. Compare to AJ, who is a trusting soul and went down without a fight ;_;

Yeah, Rarity tried. The fact that it was just "a giant rock" was just hilarious though.

I can't wait to see the next episode.

Random Plot Guess: The elements are either still in the vault, or they're back in the Everfree Forest.

"Go back where you started?" They're totally in the vault. The empty case was an illusion.

This is my vote as well. Celestia exposed the box to the outside world and at that moment the illusion was placed.

Someone is getting "The Eye" when Fluttershy snaps out of it. I would not want to be on the busniess end of that for anything.
