- Adding more fuel to the hellfire, Fluttershy apparently told Apple Bloom that Pinkie has "the voluminous hair of a temptress".
- Lest we forget, Fluttershy is the one to suggest that Pinkie is a gypsy (well, she claims that the Parasprites are work of Pinkie Pie's evil gypsy magic... and says it in a very loving way... more or less.)
- Also, the reason he joined his boy-band('signed that record label').
- Largely confirmed. Pinkie has stated she has gypsy roots which she abandoned when she had to move into the orphanage to fit in. Don't know about the Zecora part, and Pinkie's from another city, which burned down.
- Robots don't have souls, Cyborgs do. Sweetie Belle is an experimental Cyborg soldier, Rarity's war crime? Selling children for experimental war projects, even her sister.
- Or she was in the chariot crash from six years ago. Her parents died, but she managed to survive and was rebuilt.
- Robots don't have souls. They just have programs to help them emulate pony behaviour.
- How do we know that robots not having souls isn't just propaganda?
- You are a robot sympathizer! ROBOT POLICE! ROBOT POLICE!
- How do we know that robots not having souls isn't just propaganda?
- It is possible that robots don't have a soul, but may gain one depending on their interactions with real ponies, and after getting a soul, they act far more emotional that a real pony would because their bodies aren't prepared to host a soul, also possible that due to owning a soul, robots like Sweetie Belle would just go emo over finding out they are robots, instead of going on a killing rampage.
- Strictly speaking, the only hard evidence that robot ponies do not possess souls as much as organic ponies do, beyond joking implications, are the words of Cheerilee. However, when one takes Cheerilee's assertively careless personality, belief that knowledge is a dangerous thing, and personal disinterest in knowing things herself into account, one can very reasonably rule her out as a reliable source of information. It is more likely that she is simply regurgitating this dystopian Equestria's propaganda without having investigated the matter at all.
- "They say a kitch-in time saves nine / But I'm just saving two" will prove darkly prophetic: Nine will be brought Back from the Dead, but only two will survive.
- Pinkie's parents died in a city-wide fire. So the spell will retroactively cause it? Maybe that's why they didn't want Pinkie to open a portal, they knew and were trying to stop her. They didn't tell her because the recording was damaged in the fire.
- Trixie will be giving a perfectly normal performance, but when the Mane Cast heckle her, she deals with them vaudeville style. Unfortunately, this inspires them to trick Snips and Snails (by threatening Spike) to go out alone, into a dangerous forest, to retrieve an Ursa Minor, in a deliberate attempt to murder her.
- Alternatively, Trixie fought in the war alongside Applejack and Rarity, who did something heroic (fended off a massive bear attack) as opposed to war crimes or deserting. She starts off more or less well-adjusted and works as a traveling performer, but it turned out she was captured and tortured by the bears later and now suffers from bear-induced PTSD, meaning she can't fend off the Ursa. (Heck, she might have died in the bear attack and ends up being one of the individuals brought back).
- Gilda on the other hand, recognizes Fluttershy as the Antichrist that she is, and how the town is completely insane (her other negative traits will be edited down or plays up Pinkie's near-stalkerish tendencies during the episode). She wigs out because she really was being deliberately targeted.
- She might also be angry at Pinkie for messing up the space-time continuum.
- Or, building on Rarity's parents, the dragon, and Granny Smith's relation to the Main Six, Gilda was brought back from the dead and is attempting to selflessly repair the timeline.
- Something like this is coming closer to realization given Rainbow Dash's comment in "Cherry Bomb" about how her other friends whom she thought ditched her turned out to have died.
- "Damn it Dash! Your pranks are not funny! How do you think I died the last time?!"
- Dash, of course, will be mortified that she has gained a backstory and thus character depth.
- She might also be angry at Pinkie for messing up the space-time continuum.
- The Diamond Dogs will be members of a Saintly Church who want to gather gems so that they can defeat the Smooze. However, they make the mistake of kidnapping Rarity, which brings the wrath of the cult on their heads. At the end, Fluttershy will bury them alive
- Their attempt to kidnap Rarity will stem from a wish to deprogram her. It fails, hard.
- Blueblood will screw with Rarity because he realizes she's just trying to use him for his looks, money, power, and prestige.
- Rather than Mind Rape, Discord will try to make the girls have Heel Realizations, and his chaotic magic will be funneled towards Lampshading the already bizarre nature of the FiW world.
- Flim and Flam actually do offer a reasonable deal but quickly realize the Apple Family are terrible businessponies and try to take it over for the good of the farm. Applejack sabotages their machine.
- Alternatively, they're from the Equestrian equivalent of the ATF. Their contempt for Applejack comes from witnessing her crimes during The War.
- The changelings are trying to prevent the royal wedding because it will somehow facilitate the resurrection of Lord Smooze.
- Or they recognize Cadence for what she is.
- Turned out that there weren't changelings. Cadence was definitely not an evil shapeshifting queen, but instead the nicest pony ever. Twilight locked her away in the crystal catacombs to die.
- Cadence Notevil Goodpony could recruit the noble shapeshifting royal protectors from the country she was freely elected as ruler of, to try to save Equestria and her ex-fiancé from the crazy purple princess, though.
- Candace was introduced in Horse Women, it's entirely possible that SHE could do some of this.
- Twilight: (lying) We were wrong to treat you that way. We're sorry.
- If "Lunar Slander" is any indication, Pinkie Pie didn't physically go back in time. How all of those people including her baby parents came back has yet to be explained... but A Gypsy Did It, so maybe we shouldn't dwell on it.
- Given what we see in the animatics, this may be an accurate guess of its in-show persona...
- With this in mind, Colt Leader Fluttershy might become disillusioned when she finally meets it. "You're not the world smothering eldritch goop I thought you were!"
- So, we meet Smooze under the alias of Jeff The Blob. He ends up eating Scootaloo but helps to cheer up Pinkie Pie.
- Evidence for this: She needs glasses! Fictional idiots almost never need glasses, but fictional smart people almost always do.
- Scootaloo, who really is her daughter, is a big part of this. Rainbow does honestly love Scootaloo, but tries to hide it because love for your child=depths.
The one involving the Apple sisters is by far the more popular, but the theory that Rarity might actually be Sweetie Belle's deeply shamed mother is definitely out there. However, it's pointed out several times that Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo are nowhere related, so they definitely aren't mother and child. Fi W parodies this by instead making Scootaloo Rainbow's kid while the others kept their status as sisters.
- He does go on a destructive rampage in Secret of my Excess...
- Obviously, if Apple Bloom were to become President, it would be President of the Dole Corporation. Buy Some Apples!
- So far royalty's been relatively sympathetic; Celestia is just doing her job and avoiding Twilight's fanfics like the plague, and Luna just wants to have friends. Except... Luna gave her title to Twilight. I think Apple Bloom may end up getting some unexpected aid in her plot to overthrow a princess.
Which would mean that Fluttershy lied to her friends' faces... something she has done before — remember her "innocent friendship fires" from earlier in the episode?
- This Troper's interpretation is that everything Fluttershy said he did was true From a Certain Point of View, such that the robot wolves = plushies, and the ants = . . . I'm not sure about the ants, tbh.
- How do African ants survive in frozen tundra?
- Her father says he threw her Velveteen Rabbit in the fire and asked if she was still mad about it. In the original Velveteen Rabbit story, the parents are about to throw the rabbit into a fire because the child had Scarlet fever and his toys may have still had the disease on them, now how does this relate to Fluttershy's dad? What if Fluttershy simply had Scarlet Fever, the symptoms of which include fever, which, at a high enough temperature induce hallucinations and confusion, not to mention that she's probably be sleeping/dreaming for a long time during her recovery, making her blur reality and her dreams. Also the spots from Scarlet Fever, to a half delusional child, may resemble "rabid African ants" on her body. Then her father burns her velveteen rabbit and her "stuffed animal friends" due to the possibility that the microbes could've still been on them.
- Trixie will make her first appearance using clips from Magic Duel, and is in fact Luna pissed off at Twilight for manipulating her.
- And she will act a lot like Bane from The Dark Knight Rises for why she torments the town and exiles Twilight.
- Sweetie Belle is a cyborg, made from a corpse (the real Sweetie Belle?) provided by Applejack. She isn't in school, because she's been this age for the past ten years.
- While everyone knows Sweetie Belle is a cyborg (it's kinda obvious), Scootaloo is secretly a spy robot (it stands to reason spy robots would be better at blending in than combat models).
If they actually do this, everyone will cry like babies.
- While that is VERY possible, her being worried about a filly wouldn't be OOC even if she is the Antichrist: She had a Hilariously Abusive Childhood and probably doesn't desire to inflict any wrongdoing (other than a quick death with the end of the world) to any filly.
- and Cadence Notevil Goodpony, because they're the only two heroic characters that have died.
- Jossed, at least the Raincloud part due to its appearance in Episode 10, where it appears normally without the use of the "x/9" counter that appears whenever someone's been resurrected.
SHE IS A ROBOT I TELL YOU! I AM NOT CRAZY!
- SHH! Quiet, you idiot! If you're right and she finds out, she'll go on a rampage like the propaganda campaigns tell us they do.
- You're just making absolutely no sense whatsoever. Dear Sweetie Belle, a robot? Preposterous.
- Spike/The Smooze: You are all Heartless, Evil Monsters who need to Die for the Good of Everypony Else.
- Then why would Celestia vouch for Francis having been adopted?
- Somebody didn't stick around until the end credits...
- Smooze: I have summoned you here for a purpose...
Cadence: Nopony summons Cadence!
Smooze: Then it pleases me to be the first...
- Think back to "Dragone Baby Gone", in which Princess Twilight's skills include writing fanfiction...
- Likely jossed. Apple Bloom said that only parents can be resurrected by the portal, and given her purity resume, it's unlikely that she would have a child.
- Adding to this: none of the alicorns have real political power
- Adding to this some more: Twilight becoming a full alicorn will be the finale and Celestia's method of karmic retribution. Twilight will become a full princess, but in the process she'll learn that alicorn princesses have no power whatsoever and end the series with a Big "NO!" upon realizing this.
Apples. They have something in them that makes every pony act how they act, sort of like the phrase 'what kind of water are they drinking?', but with apples. Cadence is allergic to apples and as such can't eat them, which is why she's the only good-hearted pony in the show and Rarity's stories about Applejack's ruthlessness in the war, as well as her apparent aggressiveness (Destroy, Destroy, Destroy!) can be easily explained with the large amount of apples she probably eats. On that note, apple juice was Twilight's favorite drink as a filly, to the point were she wouldn't take anything else. Becomes kind of unsettling whenever you see Apple Bloom gobbling them up.
- Is... is that why that hypnotic apple made her forget all about her aspirations?
He was likely captured in a dragon-slaying party of something. If Spike were born into the ponies' world, he would be used to the treatment they give him, which he doesn't seem to be. He often hopes they Twilight and her friends will help him, and he would have no reason to complain if it was all he knew. He might remember what it was like to once be treated kindly, and hopes that things will be better, but they never do. He's no where near as jaded as someone born into that situation would be.
Her exact word were: If a robot ever found out that it was a robot, it might go on an existential rage through the town. Key word; Might, as in it's never happened before. If you listen carefully, who can hear Cheerilee ranting about her possibly-robot husband and sounding very unhappy, so she might just be upset at him. On top of it all, their seem to be police for just about everything, so they might just be looking for another excuse to kill more ponies.
She's a cyborg. Sweetie seems to have real emotions and more importantly, she apparently has free will as indicated by her easily storming off to go see Apple Bloom, suggesting the presence of a living soul.
- Adding to this: a cyborg is biologically born but has robotic attachments. Judging from Sweetie Bot's noises, voice and mannerisms, it wouldn't be improbable to guess that her limbs, vocal chords and eyes were replaced with mechanical attachments and the rest of her body is biological.
Given the number of predictions they've made that have come true, (Gypsy Pinkie, Twilight's brother, Twilight becoming a princess, Spike becoming a dog, and Twilight developing a crush on a blue-haired rocker guy whose initials are F.S.) it seems pretty clear that THEY CAN SEE THE FUUUTUUUURE!!!
- Don't forget the tensions between Applejack and Big Mac over their relationship to Applebloom (Fi W ep 7 and "Brotherhoove social" respectively), the Humane 5 + Sunset starting a band, and... what else? I know there's more.
- Or maybe they have insider knowledge and because their show is so out there, people don't initially think it could possibly be true.
Kimi Sparkle is a weeaboo, has strong resentment of Rarity, a strange attraction to Trixie, and tries to force ideas from fan fiction into the show. All of these traits are consistent with Fi W's portrayal of the character. Lunar Slander shows that she's not above using sockpuppets. Further evidence? The last part of her name is "Sparkle" and for a split second in her "Transyl-Mania" review a horn appeared on her forehead. Co-incidence? I think not.
And the easiest way to avoid screwing that up is keep his head down and do as he is told.
Because they know what we are expecting....
Twilight's characterization here mirrors that of one Bella Swan, albeit with a more cheerful less emo outlook. She is largely selfish and self-centered, creepily enamored with her friends, who seem to be there solely for her own needs rather than any genuine bond, and seems to have an unfounded sense of entitlement to whatever she wants. For example, on the train ride in "Cherry Bomb", she starts talking about Applejack, but ultimately brings the topic to herself and in "Faoly Matropony" she outright tells Francis (who she's supposed to be in love with) that she doesn't care about his problems. She seems to live in her own rather warped reality, uses others for her own needs on a whim and doesn't seem to care who or how many get hurt to get her own way, and she'll resort to tantrums if she must. These are all common criticisms of the characters from Twilight.
At the end, Spike will be seen whipping random ponies, while his unicorn "assistant" pulls his wheel-less carriage. Twilight will try to apologize, while trying to make it sound like they were the villains, who the ponies were trying to help.
Spike will just whip her, while either saying an Ironic Echo of some kind or simply "Karma's a b**ch."
Notice how, when confronted about this, the dragon seems somewhat depressed, perhaps having regrets about how he treated his daughter. But unfortunately, she was way past forgiveness at that point.
