Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Lyra and Bon Bon got engaged in the previous episode, but are shown separated in this two-parter, sticking with their respective races. By contrast, Unicorn Sugar Belle sticks with her new husband Big Mac among the Earth Ponies. Did Lyra and Bon Bon buy into the rumors that badly, or did each of them figure the other was safer sticking with their own kind than being harassed by the other's race and insist on it? If it's the latter, the reason Big Mac didn't insist that of Sugar Belle could be because he knows he easily could take on anyone that tried to give his new wife grief.


* WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack: A platonic one, in this case. Despite Rainbow Dash calling it a pretty epic make-up, many fans feel that Discord roasting Tirek and making him accidentally release Starlight ''doesn't'' make up for him trying to boost Twilight's confidence by bringing together the Mane Six's worst villains and putting Equestria in danger.


* UnintentionallySympathetic: Cozy Glow. We never found out her backstory or why she was so evil, and she was never offered a chance to seek redemption, either now or during her original banishment to Tartarus in Season 8. The fact that she and Tirek came close to reforming in "Frenemies", and that she looks terrified as the petrification takes effect, makes it worse. It doesn't help that, as far as she's concerned, by this point [[MortonsFork her choices are rather limited]]: either [[ThenLetMeBeEvil embrace villainy and take down Equestria]] or [[DraggedOffToHell return to her apparently indefinite imprisonment in Tartarus]].

Added DiffLines:

*OneSceneWonder: Much like with Cozy Glow from the previous episode, Pinkie Pie with Discord’s chaos magic is one of the most memorable scenes in the episode. The fact that she can actually use the chaos magic makes it all the more hilarious and/or terrifying.


* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Discord, Celestia, and Luna get this from some fans for reasons related to the MoralDissonance mentioned on the main page (them turning the trio to stone despite the fact that they were technically victims of entrapment. Cozy Glow and Tirek especially due to the fact they were already serving time in Tartarus until Discord broke them out and the princesses and Discord turn them to stone instead of sending them back there).


* AuthorsSavingThrow: Chancellor Neighsay’s HeelFaceTurn was criticized by many for feeling too underwhelming and not very believable considering his [[FantasticRacism rather negative stance on the many different creatures]]. This episode eased many of the fans opinions on him as it showcases Neighsay as one of the many returning ponies and creatures leading the charge to help Twilight and her friends in their final battle. The same can be said for seeing the Flim-Flam brothers during the final fight, who’ve gotten heat from a sizable portion of the fanbase who felt they should’ve gotten some kind of redemption within the series, with this showing that even if they'll always be con ponies, they'll also [[HiddenHeartOfGold always help out when it really matters.]]

* MoralDissonance: The villains are treated as so unforgivable for their actions by the heroes that they're subject to a fate of being TakenForGranite while Discord, who enabled and encouraged all of said villains' actions, and even broke two of them out of Tartarus while they were already serving their sentences, is forgiven by the heroes and even decides the villains' fate without stating why he deserves better.
