Well it sounds like Twilight might be the key to the CMC's dilemma. Hopefully she can key them in on a few good study habits, something that will really set a keynote for pursuing larger ambitions down the road.

In The Legend of Zelda, you find keys in dungeons to unlock doors.

"Twilight becomes insecure when the Crusaders are teased by Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, and begins hanging around with the bullies to avoid a similar fate. Even after they lose their clubhouse, the girls refuse to tell Applejack and choose to exact revenge instead."

>Twi episode
>Twi's new position means something
Yeah, this could be a thing. A bloody shame if it ends up being mentioned only in her own episodes. She's a princess now, dammit!

But yeah, CMC. Not a huge fan of them but this could be okay, I suppose. If Rarity Rakes Manehattan, Rainbow Falls and Pinkie Pride are to go by, this could be a key episode. I would imagine Twi's one would be the last one, though, so maybe not. It also sounds like the CMC are the ones doing something wrong, not Twi, and Twi won't be tempted by anything, or act against her Element and then teach about it to somepony else. But then again, Pinkie Pride made that last part rather fuzzy, so I don't know.


Actually, calling it now. Twilight Time will be Twi's key episode. Fluttershy and Applejack's key episodes are as of now unnamed, which means episodes 19 or 22 to 24/25. Also, said episodes will have the respective pony's name in the title. Just wanted this down somewhere, and this felt like the proper place~

AJ's key episode is most likely Leap of Faith

Yup, I am aware of that episode. I want to hold onto the theory about their named episodes being the key episodes to make them sort of a thematic set. It probably will be that episode, but I'd like to believe it isn't. Because of Pinkie Pride my idea of what constitutes earning your key is a bit fuzzy, so I can't really theorize that well about the possibilities of Leap of Faith being that episode, though… I imagine there's something about being tempted to or going against your Element for a while, and then teaching about said virtue to somepony else. I suppose I don't want Flim and Flam to be "redeemed", so I don't think they'll be learning anything. But who knows?

Sounds about right to me!
Fluttershy's would have to be Once Bitten, Twice Fluttershy. You know, because fangs. Then again, it could very well be that isn't a thing at all and it's just been a coincidence so far. …that sounds boring.

Well, that was something, I suppose. Twilight is a princess again, it being her episode and all. And apparently super popular for some reason, what with everypony going nuts over her. Well, every foal, anyways. Maybe Twi's place isn't actually a library after all, otherwise anypony could have gone there to see her whenever they wanted. Maybe they couldn't have actually spent time with her, but they didn't exactly show any interest in that either judging by the scene at the restaurant.

I can't blame just this episode for that, though. Because most episodes this season have ignored Twilight being a princess completely, even when it could have been relevant, there is a huge disconnect between an episode like this and the rest. I would rather have Twilight's position addressed in each episode in some way, even if very minor, and kept mostly consistent rather than this back and forth between her being a princess and not being one. Yes, I know I was against her being a princess from the start, but since it's happened I'd rather they embrace it.

All that aside, Twilight teaching Sweetie magic is pretty much a no-brainer, and I'm glad it finally happened. The Sweetie Chronicles, here we come!. And Sweetie actually managed to use her magic! That's not much, but it's about time. I wonder if they are going to keep going with this or if it was just a one-off thing. Twilight having her own apprentice could be rather cute, and Sweetie could do with some growing up. And you know, the whole thing about the apprentice becoming a master which was sort of mentioned in MMC.

Scootaloo learning to put tings together seems a bit odd, but then again, she probably needs to have her scooter repaired every now and again considering how she uses it. I'm very glad Twi wasn't teaching her about using her wings, though, that would have been terrible. Scoots and Twi learning together under RD could be cool, but Twi seems to be pretty proficient already.

As for Apple Bloom… I could see her as a potion maker, but not quite like how Twi was teaching her. I was thinking more along the lines of Zecora being her teacher. But of course, I do like Apple Bloom and Zecora together, so I guess I'm biased. She has shown talent for building before, though, so I would have been expecting something along those lines but as said, potions would be rather cool, as well, and could be very beneficial for the farm.

All that makes me wonder how much Twilight actually knows. Of course it's not like taking something apart and then re-assembling it should be too hard for her, and her being a curious pony she might have done that quite a bit on her own. Potions, though… That was more akin to what chemists do, which of course suit Twilight better than Zecora's brand of brewing. Can Twilight create the same kinds of potions Zecora can? Personally, I would say no but that's mostly out of preference. It would be very interesting to have an episode where Zecora sees Twi's equipment and starts laughing or comments on her silly set-up or some such.

Moving back to the episode, Twi's table manners certainly aren't quite princess-like, poor Rarity would have been shocked! It was kind of cute, though, in a way.

Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon… I was honestly expecting Twi to have words with those two at the end. Yes, she pointed out they weren't exactly blameless themselves, but they were basically turning the other foals against those three right in front of a princess. I would imagine Twi should know about those two and how they are bullies, and letting them just go feels wrong to me. Not that Twi is a confrontational pony, no, but still. Overall, though, I find Polsky nailed those two pretty well. They were unlikeable brats who wanted to make themselves look better at every turn and were manipulating the CMC for their own benefit. I can't say if their actions were in line with what they have done before, but at least I found they felt right. Now if only somepony gave them a good lesson about being the way they are, preferably with a belt or something.

The episode sort of felt it was dragging on, but I think that might have been because I'm just not a huge fan of the CMC and ponies making such mistakes over and over again because I feel bad for them so strongly myself. I do prefer this to them having too much story and too little time, as I've mentioned before. This time I just didn't find the story as interesting to me, personally.

Overall, I don't think the episode was too bad or anything, just meh. One of those episodes that you don't rewatch that often and end up forgetting about.


Oh, and the key thing. I don't think I saw the flower rainbow, so I guess that kind of kills it. Oh well. Not that it couldn't be it, but it doesn't fit the pattern as well. I suppose we'll be having another episode with Twi's name in the future, then, unless she really does get her key in the finale. …or I'm completely wrong about my predictons, too. Very possible, that.

TwiTwi might not have all those skills herself actually. I think she was more used as an expert on learning and research. Like she said, she wasn't going to do it for Scootaloo, but she'd help Scootaloo find a book to show her how. She's probably teaching them how to research quickly to learn the skills they need and learning alongside them ("I hate research"). Expect Sweetie, who she's quite capable of tutoring directly. If Twilight Time continues, I wouldn't at all be surprised to see her bring in an expert like Zecora for a day to work with them.

The ONLY thing that irked me about the episode is where the CMC are all apologizing to Twilight and are also doing the skills they were learning. How? Why? It was so out of place. I mean, wouldn't Twilight have given them a second chance if they apologized anyway? Why did they all have to, for no reason, do the things they were learning. It felt SOOOOOOOOOOO forced.

Otherwise, I enjoy CMC episodes, and this one was just as cute. Also, Twilight over enjoying the fast food was hilarious.

Maybe not. Remember that she had asked the CMC to demonstrate their progress in their respective skill sets as a show of sincerity.

Also, I think it was meant to show the difference between the consequences of stardom and the results of working for one's essence.

Anyone else think of this when Sweetie Belle was having her little "what would it be like if we had super powers" fantasy?
