I'm wondering if Twilight's comment of "having three big events in one week" isn't a bit of Leaning on the Fourth Wall — this episode and the two previous have been broadcasted in a shorter timeframe than usual.
I understand that Ontological Inertia is indexed specifically as a time travel trope, but the No Ontological Inertia page describes it simply as "the tendency stuff has to continue being stuff", and it seems the animators made a deliberate choice to not have Moondancer suddenly well-groomed with a well-kept house at the end of the episode. Is this really Too Meaningless To Trope?
Would Offscreen Inertia fit?
Before anyone else mentions it, I'd just like to say that Spike waking up with a book on his head looks similar to Twilight making a pillow from books in "Princess Spike" or pancakes in "Castle Sweet Castle".
Wouldn't Starlight Glimmer's Cameo also count as a Continuity Nod to her escape from true defeat?
It looks Sequel Hook-y to me.
I suspect she is surveilling Twilight; ever since the season premiere I've thought she'd be an Arc Villain, and I wouldn't be surprised if she plays a major role in "The Cutie Remark". Frankly I'm surprised this is the first time we've seen her since the premiere.

How well does it match the trope?
