Sorry to modify your posts, J.A.M.-but I hadn't seen the episodes yet when I started reading them! *laugh* Hopefully you don't mind the spoiler tags.

Now that I have watched the first two episodes, I have some (friendly) responses:

Spoiler:
I believe the movie is cannon-Twilight was still adjusting to her wings in the movie, and the season starts with her still learning how to control them properly. However, I now believe after gracefully flying up and away at her coronation, she must have had a terrible crash.

"Eve-ry thing's gonna be fiiiiiine-SMASH!"

Some fan-made theories have been disproven, but there is a gap of time between when Celestia wakes up at the end of the Children of the Night video and Luna's transformation into Nightmare. I can believe more arguments between the two of them escalated until Luna was convinced she should be the only princess to rule Equestria.

However, this season's looking to be a fun one-I just hope they don't spend every episode focusing on finding a different key to friendship.

However...

Spoiler:
Hasbro itself said that the movie wasn't canon. Also, some official MLP comics might be non-canonized in a few upcoming episodes.

And upon further analysis...


Spoiler:
The organizing of the Summer Sun Celebration is the "first royal duty" Twilight has been assigned, meaning that the Season 3 finale was probably less than 1 month prior to the Season 4 premiere.

Princess Luna is also fully in charge of the moon once more. If the sparkling in her mane and tail are an indicator, her powers were fully recharged just before Nightmare Night in the previous autumn. All fanfics that say that her power restoration was much more gradual than that have been jossed.

Confirmed from the Season 3 finale: Twilight "graduated", is no longer Celestia's student, and no longer needs to send Friendship Letters, not her, at least. Maybe now she can get her doctorate on Friendship (canonizing a few fanfics)?

I don't want to imagine what Fluttershy's house smelled like that day...

Re-confirmed. It's at most 1-2 hours by train from Ponyville to Canterlot, and maybe 45 minutes or 1 hour by pegasus. The "overnight trip" in "Mystery on the MMMMM Express" was probably because the train took a long route around Mount Canter and made several stops in the other nearby towns to pick up other contestants.

Luna did not carve the Mare on the Moon silhouette by hoof or magic during her time there. All fanfics that say she did have been jossed.



Now I'd like to see the reopening of Luna's Night/Lunar Court.

Also, look carefully at the opening video.

Specifically, right when Fluttershy sings "...sharing kidness..."

Notice anything different?

S4E03: Castle Mania

Spoiler:
We return to the Castle of the Pony Sisters! I'm sure there were plenty of references to Castlevania, but I've never seen nor played the game.
How many songs did Pinkie play?

What have we learned?

Twilight is still a bookworm Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
The tapestries probably had a conservation spell that prevented from turning into dust over 1000 years of being exposed to the Everfree's weather.
There are pipe organs in Equestria.
Full body armor existed for ponies.
Again, Twilight tunes everything out when reading a good book.
The secret passages were originally part of a "theme park", apparently
Twilight has a freeze spell!

To be quite honest, I was rather expecting the series to head downhill quite fast this season (given the Executive Meddling last season). I'm glad these fears were unjustified.

Also...

Spoiler:
Hmm...starspiders...I wonder what they do differently...

Probable confirmation: wing...um..."pop up" Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

There was also a conservation spell to make sure the books didn't turn into dust.

Theory: the ponies in the portraits MIGHT be Blueblood's ancestors.




Possiblity: Apple Jack won the Most Daring Pony contest because when she was ejected, she ended up in a window ledge, but still remained in contact with the castle. Rainbow Dash, meanwhile, flew out the window and MIGHT have left the castle's airspace.

And the "shadow pony" was either Zecora or Trixie Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

S4E04: Daring Don't

Spoiler:
Caballero!
Interfere, dummies!!!
Why didn't they stop the bad guys???
Tenochtitlan!!!
Why don't you fly away, stupid????
Wilhem scream!!!

What have we learned?

Rainbow dash is intrusive.
Equestria's year has 12 months of ~30 days.
Twilight's mother is NOT the author of daring do
Confirmed: Typewriters have 2 keys plus space.
daring do works alone.
Rainbow dash is LOUD


For some reason, that episode looked like a dream sequence, or perhaps she made up the whole thing in her journal.


And

Spoiler:
Also...

Apparently, some birds need to be taught to fly.

I wonder if the National Random Holiday Party Day was created because the writers didn't want to transpose another RL holiday to Equestria.

Has anyone noticed that Twilight is getting taller?

TENOCHTITLÁN!!!! MEXICO!!! MEXICO!!! MEXICO!!! MEXICO!!! MEXICO!!!

Quetzalcóatl Empress? Golly!!! Apparently the writers know a bit about ancient Mexico!

Has anyone noticed that Daring Do's cutie mark resembles VERY closely that of Prince Blueblood?

Heh, hay bales.

Wait...AZTEC HORSES!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!


And I wonder if RD got royalties for the book, too....unless the whole thing was made up by her, or perhaps a dream sequence.


And if Twilight's mother ISN'T the author of "Daring Do", despite what we saw in the comics, it's likely that she's just safekeeping all her awards.


With Brian Drummond as Ahuizotl
Chiara Zanni as Daring Do

and

Michael Dobson as Dr. Caballeron

Agreed. I don't really care about these Daring Do episodes, although I also liked the Aztec visuals. Ahuizotl is also cool (reminds me a little bit of Anubis, too).

Spoiler:
Rainbow Dash is the meh'est pony from the Mane 6


Edit:
Spoiler:
Apparently Ahuizotl is a dog-like creature (which also has a hand on its tail) from the rel Aztec mythology.

S4E05: Flight to the Finish:

Sorry, I was a bit busy this morning.

Now then...

Spoiler:
The return of Ms. Horsewhinny!
Why do I have the feeling that Snips & Snails are going to win? Wink
Hmmm....can't make out exactly what the Cloudsdale Flag looks like...
Song!
The return of Snowflake/Roid Rage!!!
And...ugh...the return of Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon... Razz
Hey, Scootaloo closed her wings for the first time!
Scootaloo scooted from Ponyville to the Crystal Empire????? Or did she just catch up to the train?
Heh, I was wrong about Snips & Snails Very Happy


What have we learned?

Rainbow Dash carried the Cloudsdale Flag in the opening ceremony of the Equestria Games in Phillidelphia.
Snowflake/Roid Rage is afraid of butterflies.
Scootaloo is stronger than she seems...or Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle are lighter than we thought. Especially Apple Bloom, as an earth pony, I thought she'd be the heaviest of the 3.
SCOOTALOO LIVES IN HER OWN HOME!!! SHE'S NOT HOMELESS!!! SHE'S NOT AN ORPHAN!!! 99.9% OF ALL SCOOTALOO FANFICS HAVE BEEN JOSSED!! IN YOUR FACE, AUTHORS, IN YOUR FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've said this before on "One Bad Apple", and I'll say it again:

Spoiler:

S4E06: Power Ponies

Maniac = Joker
2 more minutes at 4 am? Golly...
I wonder why they want to restore the old castle....
Use youre magic, you stipid alicorn!!!
Heh, typical Pinkie...
Not being well versed in the DC/Marvel universes, I have no idea what superheroes they're supposed to be parodying. Except maybe Fillysecond, who I assume is the Flash.
Saddle Ranger = Hulk?
I think Rarity is Green Lantern
FINALLY! A superhero who trips on his own cape!
He he he, the return of Flutterrage!!!!


What have we learned?

Twilight isn't the only one who pulls off all nighters.
The comic book publisher has some VERY interesting spells weaved into the printing process.

Spoiler:
Spike can grab things with his toes.

For a moment there I thought I saw 30's style automobiles, but no, they're all horse/pony powered.

It's strange that the vendor stand took out a piece of the roof, but a solid fire hydrant disintegrated without damaging the roof at all...

....aaaand someone is going to calculate how fast Fillysecond was going at that last moment: ½ second to travel 65 blocks to the bakery, and back.

And I'll say one thing: Ellen Kennedy did a superb job as Mane-iac. Mark Hamill must be very proud Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

No, really, she combined the best of Discord, the Joker, and Nightmare Moon. One of the most colorful voices of the series yet.

S04E07: Bats!

Spoiler:
The return of the fruit bats!
Hmm...I guess the western orchard is no longer the only place they're confined to. We saw the east orchard here.
Vampire fruit bats? Hmmm...
That's a BIG apple...
Song!
And Pinkie agrees with AJ, interesting...
The return of The Stare™!
I wonder what that bat was reading...
He he, drooling Fluttershy...
First we had Flutterrage, then Flutterb****, then Flutterhulk, and now, Flutterdracula! Very Happy
Powerpoint presentation!
Why didn't Twilight just catch her with her telekinesis?


What have we learned?

The Apple's barn has a bell.
There is religion in Equestria.
Pinkie's mane is also prehensile.
Oh dear, she wasn't completely restored....

Also...

Spoiler:
Wait, who was ringing the bell?

More evidence of Earth Pony Magic™: apparently AJ used her magic to make that apple tree grow 1 giant apple instead of 100 separate apples.

Well, the "religion" bit I deduced from the line "as mean as sin", along with several others who were watching it on live stream. At the very least it confirms that Equestria has an established moral code, so I'm not quite sure if that would qualify as a religion.

Yet another example of Earth Pony Magic™: Pinkie Pie could not have pulled off a "Dig Dug" without it.

This is the second incident when a cutie mark is altered. Fluttershy's cutie mark changed from 3 pink butterflies to 3 pink bats. This is powerful magic we're talking about here.

Spoiler:
Song!
Heh, good one, RD.
I wonder how many shoutouts there were in that Times Square scene...
The return of Sapphire Shores, Hoity Toity, and Photo Finish!
The return of Wet Mane!
Reprise!
Odd, I wonder why movie theater seats are not the same as that as a play theater.


What have we learned?

Bridleway = Broadway
There are suspension bridges in Equestria.
There are modern yachts in Equestria.

I loved the last episode-most of my favorite episodes feature Rarity!

Spoiler:

Rarity's always seemed like a character being pulled in two different directions. She's the spirit of generosity, but also is constantly motivated by her own agenda and desires. It's great to see an episode showing how the two can compliment each other.

Also...

Spoiler:
There are large observatories in Equestria, with enormous telescopes (see the opening scene when the train crosses the suspension bridge). Meaning, that the astronomy community in Equestria is nearly equal in advancement to Earth. All they need now is space telescopes. Hmm...I wonder if they can see the Earth's sun from Equestria....(if they can see the constellation of Cassiopeia, the "W" or "M" would have one additional yellow star).

Sweet Apple Acres is being advertised in their Times Square.

There is also an Equestrian version of "Cats", if that black sign is any indication.

It LOOKS like Manehattan also has an electric subway, of which some lines run above ground AND above street level (in the scene where the title is displayed).

"Ponies just bursting into song in random places at the drop of a hat? Who does that?" I'm going to save that, he he he.

That yacht is owned (or run) by Fancy Pants and Fleur de Lis.

A shoutout to Angry Cat!

Rarity has the advanced restoration spell that can "glue" broken objects back together. Now that Twilight is an alicorn, the title of the Most Powerful Unicorn™ may go to Rarity...if she eventually learns to cast illusions and teleport.

Fancy Pants and Fleur de Lis were at the fashion show.

And just why does Fleur keep posing? Or is that a habit of hers?

Concerning the seats/bleachers/benches of the theaters, maybe those are very old theaters with very old benches, and the individual seats we saw in the movie theater in "One Bad Apple" were new because it was of a more recent construction.


And lastly...

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if Siri turned out to be Diamond Tiara's or Silver Spoon's mother...

Cousin?
Anyone see that pic of Big Mac's rear?
Shoutout to the _____ilicious videos!
Heh, waterfall. What a surprise.
Pinkie duck face!
Has anyone noticed that Michelle Crieber (Applebloom) is sounding older?
4th wall break! Again!


What have we learned?

Pinkie Pie can speed read.
Pinkie Pie can manipulate her Earth Pony Magic™ to do that "Jenga" trick with the scrolls (affecting the tree and the scrolls, both made of plant matter)
That's a very old couch.
AJ can play the banjo.

But overall I think this was the best episode in the fourth season (so far). I think AJ is the most underrated pony from the Mane 6, but I think she's cool with all her Southern accent and Southern lifestyle etc.

Since the JAM is running late with his after-episode recap, I figured I'll do the duty. So:

S04E10: Rainbow Falls

Spoiler:
What happened to those other ponies from Hrricane Fluttershy?
Pinkie, are you gonna cheer every time there is a p-word? (I love you girl but dang)
So that's why it's only those three.
The Wonderbolts remembered their name this time.
Nice acting, Dash. Bill Shatner will be proud.
And the crowd goes wild.
Oh yeah, and Ponyville qualifies.


What have we learned?

Griffons can compete in the Equestria Games, maybe they're a part of Equestria.
Rainbow Dash has a huge street cred in pegasus athletics.
As we have seen in "Rarity Takes Manehattan," these ponies are being put into some dog-eat-dog worlds.
The Wonderbolt reputation is to win no matter what.
Rainbow Dash's "key" might be hidden in that pin, such as Rarity's spool of rainbow thread.


And I suppose I throw four words here recapping the highlight of this episode:

DERPY
