Tirek recognizes Cadance as an alicorn princess even though she wasn't alive 1000 years ago. Since Tirek couldn't received the Equestrian Newspaper without knowing about the alicorn, Twilight and assuming that the Crystal Empire was still around back then, does this mean Cadance is the daughter of the Crystal Queen? Maybe Tirek decided to attack the Crystal Empire first and found the Crystal Queen who must look extremely similar to Cadance.
Would Lord Tirek's ability to remove a pony's cutie mark and power be equal to Amon
Pretty sure Tirek is not any sort of reference to Amon, if that's what you're going for.
This whole thing just became hilarious after the introduction of Starlight Glimmer, who is totally like Amon.
Regarding spoiling the new villain, not everybody will have seen the new clips that premiered today, and some people may not want to have it spoiled for them. Because of that, can't we at least have the villain's name spoilered until after the episodes premier this Saturday?
This is a recap page. While spoilering it outside this type of page is okay, recap pages are officially spoiler-free. You come in, you know what you're getting into.
Okay, somebody went through and spoilered all mentions of Tirek's name, despite the episode having already aired. I'm going to go through and remove the spoilers; anybody who goes to a page assumes that they're going to be spoiled. I'm pretty sure that recap pages aren't supposed to have spoiler tags.
EDIT: Or somebody else could do it before I get the chance.
