Friendship is Witchcraft:

- The fallout from the events of "Cherry Bomb". It's previously been established that Fluttershy is very interested in replicating Pinkie's gypsy magic portal—now, Pinkie is stuck in the desert alone with FS' devoted cult follower Rarity. There needs to be some interesting result from that.
- A Rainbow Dash-centered episode. The best way I can think to do this while staying true to Dash's lack of character depth is to make an entire episode of Dash trying to nap. She keeps getting woken up and finding new places to sleep—and based on the interruptions to her nap, it becomes apparent to the viewers that the other ponies are engaged in some epic fight to save Ponyville, just off-screen.
- In the Q & A thread on Reddit, someone suggested "Flutter Shyland" as a punny title for a future episode, and Sherclop Pones really liked it. I got to wondering how that could work out, and this is what I came up with: Redub "Putting Your Hoof Down" to make Iron Will a psychologist claiming that Fluttershy is an escaped patient from a mental hospital. He starts to convince FS that her past adventures were all hallucinations ("You say you killed that dragon who lives on the mountain just outside Ponyville? I checked just yesterday and he looks pretty alive to me. Interesting...") but the rest of the Mane Six are convinced that he's trying to exploit FS, somehow. Iron Will dies, and the others blithely assume that the status quo has been restored, but Fluttershy is left floundering, unable to ever again trust her own mind.
