* Daring Do being called out for "stealing" artifacts stems from the fact that she hides it in her own house with no other forms of security, ironically making it easier to steal whenever she's not home. Leaving the ancient sites in ruins really didn't help her case. It's also a nod to how RealLife archaeologists in the past would bring home foreign artifacts without the permission of the locals, which is effectively legalised theft.

Added DiffLines:

* Why Rainbow Dash didn't buy Dr. Caballeron disguise this time? She was fooled before in a similar fashion in "Daring Done?". There is no way she is going to fall for it a second time.


* Ahuizoti being GoodAllAlong explain why no-one other than Daring Do was opposing them. And why so many ponies were supporting him despite the 800 year heatwave he'd bring (it wouldn't have been as bad as it sounded).

* Thanks to Ahuizoti, we now know where the design on the totally-not body pillows at the [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E14StrangerThanFanFiction Daring Do convention]] came from.


* Starlight Glimmer being nervous when Doctor Whooves mentions time travel. Of course, being a time traveller herself, of course she would be worried about the inevitable repercussions.

** It also ties with what Trixie once told Starlight in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E25ToWhereAndBackAgainPart1 To Where And Back Again - Part 1]]", in that the important part of mistakes is forgetting about them and moving on. Naturally, she wouldn't be interested in others' mistakes either...



* Trixie being angry at Grandpa Gruff about his neglect of Gallus. Being the abandoned/neglected by her father herself would have no doubt made it personal for her.

* Discord not being invited is because Starlight doesn't want another incident to happen again.


* Of course Aplebloom would run faster than Sweetie Belle while disguised as "the Banshee Beast", Sweetie had to keep the heavy head part up so Snap and Mane could see, slowing her down.

* [[NiceGuy Fancy Pants]] taking a level in jerkass seems odd at first. Then, you realise that he was kind enough to offer his help the first time, only for Twilight to forcibly decline multiple times because of her need to overcompensate. In his eyes, he is dealing with an incompetent stuck-up like any other stereotypical noble.

Added DiffLines:

** Alternatively, neither Ember (who was new to the task) nor Fluttershy (who has no reason to know this) knew how warm the ''eggs'' were supposed to be; Spike figured it out because he was the first one to think to check the ''ground''. In addition, since the Dragonlands never get cold, Ember probably doesn't know what shivering is, so it makes sense that she wouldn't equate the shaking eggs to them being cold, whereas Spike would be more likely to recognize it. (Not sure what Fluttershy's excuse is there, though.)


* Gramp Gruff complaining about how he has to fly to Ponyville to hear about Gallus' school progress may be why he sends so many letters through Gabby. That way, he can still hear about Gallus'progress without having to leave his house, and with the added bonus of having to talk to as few creatures as possible.

* Trixie telling her class how she [[BookDumb never learned history]] actually explains a lot towards her constant ego and exaggeration, despite there never being an instance of it succeeding; those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it.

Added DiffLines:

* Both times when Rarity pulls out the fainting couch, she gets advice from Twilight on how to fix the problems when the two sit on them. The fainting couch also doubled as a therapy chaise.

Added DiffLines:

* Suddenly, it makes sense where Smolder would get that story about Scales from: Garble could possibly be the story-teller.
