- Ascended Fanon:
- After being seemingly Jossed by "Somepony to Watch Over Me"note and "Made in Manehattan"note , Applejack reveals that her hat was indeed a keepsake of her parents, coming from her father specifically. While there are possible explanations for this (she has plenty of hats and only wears THAT hat on special occasions for example) none of them are supplied by the show, creating a space for even more fanon.
- After a scant few appearances of non-sapient Deer and the IDW comics which featured sapient deer throughout the years, talking Reindeer have finally appeared on the show.
- Out of Holiday Episode: It's a Christmas Special that originally aired on October 27th, just a few days before Halloween.
- Talking to Himself: Tabitha St. Germain has a full scene talking to herself as Rarity and Derpy/Muffins.
- Word of God: The special takes place between Season 8 and 9.
