* {{Foreshadowing}}: This would not be the only time in this season that Twilight [[spoiler:[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 had to confront a very emotionally hurt unicorn and have her get over the past]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* TearsOfJoy: This happens a few times at the end of the episode. Moon Dancer is moved to tears when Twilight, Minuette, Lemon Hearts, Twinkleshine, and a few other party guests offer her their friendship, and Twilight gets a little misty-eyed as she and Moon Dancer share a hug, and Moon Dancer cries a few tears of joy one last time as she sees Spike's gift for her.

* ShadowArchetype: Moondancer, who starts the episode as who Twilight would have become if she had shut everybody out, doing pretty much nothing but studying. To emphasize the point, flashbacks show that Moondancer used to be a PaletteSwap of Twilight and also uses Twilight's original magic aura from the early seasons of the show.

'''Moondancer:''' Well sure, why wouldn't it? That was only the ''first'' time I put myself out there, and then you ''didn't even bother to show up''! Then you left town without saying goodbye, even though we were supposed to be friends! ''(tearing up)'' I was ''humiliated''! I felt like I wasn't important! I ''never'' wanted to let myself be hurt like that again! ''[points to Minuette, Twinkleshine, and Lemon Hearts]'' Those three finally convinced me that I had value, that other ponies might like me and want to be my friend, and ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis you! Didn't! Show!]] '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis UP!!!]]''''' ''[[[TearJerker breaks down crying]]]''

* {{Retcon}}: [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles "The Cutie Mark Chronicles"]] and [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Sunset Shimmer's origin story in the comics]] depict Moondancer, Lyra, Minuette, Twinkleshine, and Lemon Hearts at near present age when they appear while Twilight was still a filly; this episode undoes the age gap. The comics also had Moondancer similar to Fluttershy in mane-style and personality; here, she's these to Twilight. However, the flashback in season one depicts those characters [[OffModel as earth ponies]] rather than unicorns.

* VisualPun: Moondancer pops Twilights "Bubble of Silence" during one of the latter's attempts to talk to the former. You could say she literally "Burst her bubble."
