To add the WMG above, the said villain could do a "Social Experiment" similar to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' to the ponies in "Putting Your Hoof Down" maybe jerkasses but they're not total [[TheSociopath sociopaths]], and show their FreudianExcuse on why they act that way. And everypony is really good at heart, except the villains. Or perhaps even the said Villain had a reason, without evil. The universe will suffer from entropy and wipe out from existence.

[[WMG: There will be a CloningGambit episode.]]
* '''Confirmed''' as of "Too Many Pinkie Pies."



[[WMG: There will be an episode centered around the mane six's pets.]]
* '''Confirmed''' in "Just For Sidekicks."

[[WMG: We'll be getting a StoryArc at some point in Season 3 and/or beyond...]]
WordOfGod is that Hasbro insisted that the episodes be written to be viewed in any order, meaning [[NegativeContinuity no story arcs]]. But quite a few other shows started out with this mentality only to start introducing overarching plots in later seasons once it gained enough popularity and got the ball rolling. Given the wide PeripheryDemographic, this show has gained ''plenty'' of popularity to say the least.
* Confirmed for season 4 and 5: the Rainbow Keys arc, and the Cutie Mark Magic arc.

[[WMG: There will be an episode where Spike meets other dragons.]]
He will meet other young dragons and hang out with them. Twilight will be supportive, since she knows he'll be happy having someone like himself to hang out with. Maybe she will even be the one who introduced them in the first place. But these new friends are jerks, they pressure Spike into doing things he doesn't want to do, and try to keep him from his pony friends by telling him that ponies are lame. The Mane Cast is concerned and tries to figure out what to do. Eventually he stands up to them when they take things too far and when he realizes who really cares about him, and the lesson is that true friends aren't always the ones who look and act like you.
* Would this work better with or without one of the dragons pulling a HeelFaceTurn against the others after Spike stands up to them and becoming a semi-reoccurring character? As long as it's written well enough, of course, possibly with some subtle {{Foreshadowing}} along the way.
* This ''is'' basically the plot of "Dragon Quest".



[[WMG: Discord will return, and attempt to find other ways to remove the Elements of Harmony or their bearers.]]
Only this time, he's going to try not to underestimate the Ponies this time. ''How'' he'll try to remove the elements or their bearers is up for speculation.
* '''Confirmed''' as the culmination of a ''very'' long-term plan in [[spoiler: "Princess Twilight Sparkle Part 2"]].

[[WMG: There will be another episode set during winter, or at least featuring snow.]]
[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKM_Tj5VuEU A Hasbro Entertainment and Licensing video]] features a one-second clip of Fluttershy running through snowy Ponyville while flapping her wings, and Hasbro's ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/ Card Creator]]'' game features [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_TS_01.swf images]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_RD.swf of]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_RA.swf the]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_FS.swf ponies]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_AJ.swf wearing]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_PP.swf winter]] [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_DH_definitely_canon.swf outfits]] that they haven't yet worn in the show.
* Parts of "The Crystal Empire" are set in the arctic north, so I guess we can call this confirmed.
** And winter comes again early in season 5. Double-confirmed.



[[WMG: There will be an episode where the Mane Cast are transformed into some other species.]]
Might be intentional, might not be. It would just be interesting to see the Mane Cast as griffons or dragons.
* It's recently been hinted that Fluttershy will be transformed into a dragon for a day in Season 3. However, this is just a rumor, so nopony knows for sure.
** Well, she was turned into [[spoiler: a vampire]] in Season 4, which could have been mistaken for a dragon by someone who only saw a still from the episode.
* Confirmed in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E16ItAintEasyBeingBreezies "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies"]].

[[WMG: TimeTravel will be involved at some point down the road.]]
With one group trapped in the past, the other trapped in the future.
* '''Confirmed''' in "It's About Time," though only one pony time-travels.

[[WMG: There will be another Daring Do episode.]]
* '''Confirmed''' in "Daring Don't." There most likely won't be a third, though.



[[WMG:Rainbow Dash will have a friends-vs-society episode when she is accepted into the Wonderbolts.]]
In the end, she will keep her friends and be a Wonderbolt.
* '''Confirmed''' in "Wonderbolt Academy," though this hasn't been brought up again since.

[[WMG: There will be a Scootaloo episode...]]
And it will revolve around her inability to fly. She'll see other colts and fillies flying, including very young ones like Pound Cake, and wonder why she has such a hard time flying. In the end, she'll learn that some ponies are late bloomers.
* That is, if she manages to fly in the end. If she doesn't, she'll probably replace her wings with jets. The jets will eventually fail and she'll learn that it's better to do things the natural way.
* Or maybe an episode about: When Rainbow blows off Scootaloo too many times for trivial things instead of helping her fly, it makes her upset and denounces Dash as an idol. Rainbow thinks nothing of it at first, but when she discovers her former fan is learning from three old bullies of hers', she feels regretful for hurting her friend. Can Rainbow find a way to win her friend back?~ episode idea by HTFfan-101
* Well, Scootaloo got "Sleepless in Ponyville". Which didn't address her flying, but did deal with (and upgraded) her relationship with Rainbow Dash.
* '''Confirmed''' in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E5FlightToTheFinish "Flight to the Finish"]]



[[WMG: So just what was that mysterious book at the end of "The Crystal Empire"?]]
Let's have some theories.
* An ancient, forbidden magical tome known only to the royal sisters
** The ''Neighcronomicon''?
* A lesson plan for the next level of Twilight's studies
* Twilight's diary
* A Manga/DeathNote
* The same mysterious book from the bottle in [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Noki Bay]]
* It has something to do with Star Swirl the Bearded.
** Seems to have been confirmed -- if it's indeed the same book, Star Swirl wrote it and it contains the unfinished spell that caused all the trouble in the season finale.



* Should the above "Twilight alicorn" WMG not happen, it'll most likely involve Discord making a BigEntrance in Ponyville in the beginning and, after some resistance from the Mane 6, Spike, Shining Armor, and Cadance, similar to the WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague two-parter "Hereafter", [[spoiler: seemingly kills Twilight (but in reality transporting her to another, weird dimension), with all of Ponyville mourning her "death" as well as Celestia and/or Luna and Shining Armor giving her eulogy]].

[[WMG: The show will not change much after season 3.]]
Twilight will be the same old Twilight. The episodes will still be SliceOfLife episodes taking place in Ponyville. The other members of the Mane Six will get as much exposure and screentime as they do now. Twilight will still live in the library. There will be episodes focusing on [[spoiler: the challenges and trials that come with being a powerful princess, but that's it]].
* Confirmed.



* More like a mix of "SliceOfLive" and one or two major arcs over the entire season, such as "Equestria Games" and the Rainbow Keys arc in season 4.

[[WMG: At least one future threat will come out of Tartarus.]]
In the episode "It's About Time", it's briefly mentioned that there is a realm called Tartarus that is full of monsters and spirits that could pretty much destroy Equestria. In Greek myth, Tartarus is a place of suffering and horror where souls are punished. It would be weird if they introduce what is basically ''Hell'' and then never bring it up again. So in future episodes, more details about Tartarus will be given and there will even be new villains and threats that come out of it. Discord might be called on to help, maybe some of the monsters will even be a match for him. Fluttershy may have to call on Cerberus, since the dog must be pretty powerful if it's assigned to guard the place. Some of the characters may even have to go inside Tartarus, and it will be full of [[MindScrew mind screws]] and NightmareFuel.
** Confirmed. [[spoiler: Tirak]] escaped from Tartarus. Discord does get called in, he is defeated. How much NightmareFuel is there is a matter of opnion but he does suck the life out of ponies, locks some people in Hell and would have won if not for the perfect storm. He doesn't lose by clutching the VillainBall; he loses to low tier DeusExMachina.



[[WMG: Season 4 and beyond will show more locations outside of Ponyville.]]
With Twilight becoming a princess and taking the next level in her magic studies, she's gonna have a lot more to do. That could mean going to other places to explore and learn, as well as perform royal duties. This would give the writers a chance to feature the many locations that are mentioned but never shown.
** Confirmed. And Equestria is a scarier place in reality than we've been lead to believe. There is a swamp with fire pits and chimera! Everfree forest where there are wild animals. ROFL.

From them eating some kind of [[GRatedSex fertility berry]] to make it more kid-friendly. It will probably have a ShoutOut to {{Juno}}, where each of them are trying to find a home for their soon-to-be born fillies. Each of them will also have their own problems with the pregnancy as well.

* Nightmare Moon Timeline: The “Pony of Shadows” emerges from ….well… the shadows...and releases the Power of Darkness to turn everpony into demonic creatures and by under his/her command through a mind control crown. The villain then uses his/her god-like power to move the moon in front of the sun, creating a solar eclipse as well as eternal darkness. Princess Luna sensing a disturbance, teleports into the Canterlot to find what is coming, only to discover the POS is behind it all. After an intense battle, the POS reveals he/hrt was the one who [[MindRape mentally manipulated]] Luna into becoming Nightmare Moon in order for her to kill Celestia, extinguish the sun, and bring forth Eternal Night, in order to wipe all non-nocturnal life so he/her [[FinalFantasyIV Lunarian kind could rule Equestria]] in a state of darkness.

It'll be framed by a conversation between Celestia and Luna on the anniversery of that fateful night; said conversation will provide an in-depth look at what both sisters went through and will end in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. As for the battle itself, it might have some similarities to Thor and Loki's final battle in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' or Obi-Wan and Anakin's duel in ''StarWars: RevengeOfTheSith''.

* ''Related Related Related Theory'': Star Swirl is the Equestria's version of [[spoiler: [[TransformersDarkOfTheMoon Sentinel Prime]]]]. He was regarded as a great pony during his time and was even Celestia's mentor. When he makes his comeback, he is seemingly friendly at first, but he secretly struck a deal with Queen Chrysalis to take over Equestria. While Chrysalis is merely in it ForTheEvulz, Star Swirl the Bearded is a WellIntentionedExtremist who merely wants to return Equestria to its "former glory," and is using Chrysalis as a pawn to fulfill his plans. Like [[spoiler: Sentinel Prime]], he'll also have an AGodAmI moment.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: There will be an episode in which the Cutie Mark Crusaders are called by the Map]]
Their Friendship Problem would be like another Sunburst/Starlight situation (one of two friends gets a cutie mark, while the other doesn't), but more serious. This time, the Ponies the CMC has to help are constantly fighting, eventually declaring the end of their friendship. It would also remind Aplebloom of one of her earlier concerns, which she eventually discusses with the other Crusaders.
