Added DiffLines:

* AnAesop: Trust your instincts.

Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: Every interaction between Twilight and "Cadance" in the previous part is put in a new light now that the viewer knows she's really Queen Chrysalis in disguise.


** The Nursery Rhyme dance seen in Twilight's flashback in the first part. When Twilight stumbles upon the real Cadance, she's all set to blast her since Chrysalis has been mocking her through reflections. So Cadance quickly proves she the real one by doing the dance. Something Chyrslias failed to do when she first met Twilight while under her guise.

Added DiffLines:

* WingdingEyes: When Twilight begins to sing the closing song "Love is in Bloom", a few stars twinkle in her eyes.


* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NtqdFciv9Q&t=1m17s Queen Chrysalis's Leitmotif]] is a minor-key transposition of Cadance's.

* HateSink: Queen Chrysalis kind of fits the bill for not only turning Twilight's friends and her brother ''and'' her mentor against her, but subsequently [[{{Irony}} turning Twilight against the real Princess Cadence]] (even for a moment). [[note]]Bear in mind, Chrysalis was [[XanatosGambit counting on]] Twilight to blindly kill Cadence, some pony once close to her.[[/note]] And, even though it's intended to feed her subjects, it's unnerving that she takes something as precious as love and exploits it.


* FixFic: There are a handful that try to address the minimal apology Twilight received at the end of this episode, which range from sweet (''[[Fanfic/TheNuptialverse Post Nuptials]]'') to dark (''FanFic/FaithAndDoubt'').

* VillainSong: "This Day Aria", with the initial song as a villain/hero duet. Notably the first song in the show from an actually evil villain (as opposed to the just mean [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 Flim Flam brothers]]). In accordance with the trope, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome it's awesome]].

Chrysalis's victory is absolute: Canterlot is invaded by her army, Celestia is imprisoned inside of a cocoon, the bearers of the Elements of Harmony have been neutralized and Shining Armor's power has been completely drained, leaving him incapable to recast his energy barrier. When the Evil Queen stops to gloat, Twilight frees Cadance so she can go to the side of her love. She not only breaks the changeling's hold on him, but together, their love is strong enough to give Shining Armor the strength to once again perform his protection spell and banish the changelings, not only from Canterlot but from all of Equestria. The day is saved!

** Cadance and Shining Armor pick up one introduced [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve half a season prior.]] "Hearth's Warming Eve" showed the bond between ponies could be used to power up an extremely strong spell. Cadance and Shining Armor do a similar technique, except with [[ThePowerOfLove another bond]] in place of ThePowerOfFriendship.
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Pinkie Pie never leaves home without her party cannon.]] This was established 17 episodes earlier and pays off in epic fashion.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: It's hard ''not'' to be reminded of a [[TheWarOnTerror certain tragedy]] during the changeling Invasion, which is called by various people a terrorist attack, especially with the plot resembling another real life event, the Royal Wedding of William and Kate.

* ImpersonatingTheEvilTwin: Fluttershy briefly does this to avoid fighting, hiding amongst a group of Changeling doppelgangers while snarling menacingly, then meekly creeping off when they're distracted.



* NearVillainVictory: Queen Chrysalis only lost because she put the wrong two prisoners in adjacent caves and then underestimated the very power that she used to get so far.

* SilentSnarker: One of the Changelings tries to frighten Pinkie by menacingly transforming from Rarity into Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy. When Pinkie giggles and excitedly tells the Changeling to turn into her next, it rolls its eyes before obliging and striking a "Ta-da!" pose.



** Played straight during race to get the elements. The changling army change into the Mane 6 and try to separate them to confuse them. The group have to pick out the real versions amongst the brawling.

The group have to pick out the real versions amongst the brawling. While this enables Fluttershy to hide among a group of doppelgangers, it almost results in Twilight blasting the real Applejack.

Added DiffLines:

* FadeAroundTheEyes: Occurs in one scene during "This Day Aria" as Chrysalis says, "What they don't know is that I have fooled them all!".


* EtTuBrute: {{Lampshade| Hanging}}d by Queen Chrysalis when she points out on how the rest of the Mane Six ignored Twilight in the last episode for being suspicious of Cadance. Granted, they were tricked and all but Twilight made it clear in that she didn't hold it against them.
