Added DiffLines:

* {{Flanderization}}: Not an overwhelming case, but from this episode onward, Twilight's role as TheFinickyOne would become a more primary foible in her character, compared to Season One where her moments of being SuperOCD or a ControlFreak were more subtle and brief over being a FishOutOfWater or OnlySaneMan.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: In the first season, the animators often used anime-esque abstract backgrounds for close-ups, to get around the fact they had to create all of the art assets from scratch and didn't have time to create unique background plates for each shot. In this, the first episode of season 2[[labelnote:*]]The Return of Harmony ''was produced as part of season one[[/labelnote]], every time a painted backdrop appears Spike pushes it out of the way or rolls it up like a shade, signifying to the audience that the show now has the resources and time to focus on creating a more unique and dynamic style.
