*FanonDiscontinuity: Many fans like to pretend that Season 2 never happened, which is made easier by the original {{Audio Adaptation}} ending shortly before the point when the 2nd Season got controversial.

Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: Let's just say the second season is [[ContestedSequel somewhat contested]] for a few [[DramaBomb completely fair reasons.]]


* AuthorsSavingThrow: After Season One was written, Creator/LaurenFaust made several WordOfGod statements that {{Jossed}} almost everything Vinyl Scratch accused Celestia of in her interview, thereby making Vinyl look like an utter bitch making false accusations about one of the rulers of Equestria. Season Two, Episode Three [[spoiler:has Luna tear Vinyl Scratch apart for making false accusations about one of the rulers of Equestria.]] [[BrokenBase Readers had mixed opinions on this.]]
** And Season 2 Episode 4 has Luna backpedaling a bit herself.

*TearJerker: The end of season 2, episode 2. [[spoiler: Blueblood tries to ask Trixie out, but winds up accidentally offending her, driving her to storm out of the station. A lot of the time, he's a total jerk, but here he's really trying to be nice. When it fails, he goes into such deep sadness and self-loathing that he spends the whole night getting drunk and repeatedly puts himself down over the next few days.]]
