* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Unicorns?]]: Jessica's reaction to Doctor Carehoof, a unicorn stallion like her captors the Flim Flam brothers. Dinky doesn't {{trigger}} the same reaction from her, though, and she manages to get over it thanks to interaction with Twilight over the course of the chapter.

* BreakTheCutie: Jessica's first ponies she meets are the Flim Flam brothers, who are running a monster horror show. They added her to the monster roster, treating her poorly. This left her with a fear of unicorns and their magic, and a general distrust of ponies.
