    So many aspects of the past popped back up in this episode. It was a pleasant surprise. Not nearly as heavy-handed as last week's episode, either, which was wonderful. I wish there could have been a little more time spent with Twilight training in the forest with Zacora. Wonderful to see the zebra back again. For a moment I thought they were going to fend her off with the elements of harmony, and was very relieved when they did not. I loved the ongoing outrage over Pinkie lacking a mouth and the whole bit of switcheroo played with Twilight's not-magic. Also, the delegate ponies were beautiful! Hope we see more like them in the future.
