* EmpathicEnvironment[=/=]GrayRainOfDepression: Rarity's inability to control the weather causes it to play towards the various feelings; in particular, during the [[DeliberatelyMonochrome grayscale]] montage of Twilight's BSODSong, Rarity is shown sadly plodding through one of her own downpours.

** RippleEffectProofMemory: A slightly more plausible explanation is that the spell affected everyone ''but'' Twilight into thinking that Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie were always that way, and the spell broke over them gradually with each Element as it was fixed. It would explain why nopony was helping or fixing the work Rarity and Pinkie were doing, or asking what happened with Applejack and Fluttershy's new occupations or where Rainbow Dash was. Further shown by the fact that everypony glared at Pinkie until her hair poofed back up (ie, the spell breaking over her).

* SeriesFauxnale: On the surface this episode has the makings of the GrandFinale to ''Friendship is Magic''. It rounds off the SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon format, it has more ContinuityPorn than every other episode combined, it's an epic MusicalEpisode, and it ends with the main character fulfilling her destiny. Season 4 was confirmed even before the episode aired, and head writer Meghan [=McCarthy=] has said she considers this episode to be the first of a three-parter.

** Back in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 "The Crystal Empire - Part 1"]], when Celestia gives Twilight her final instructions regarding her "test", Celestia and Luna are shown with their cutie marks looming behind them, as is Twilight in her reaction shot. It's a rather significant ArtShift hinting at Twilight's destiny in this episode.
