Tirek's escape Skybrook!8MDcALmdno 479743

The only thing I don't get about the "Future Twi was warning about Tirek" thing is that she said, "Actually, I'm from next Tuesday morning."

Tirek didn't actually attack until way later.

What, did he conquer the world beyond hope of resistance in the afternoon it took Twilight to get Cerberus back to Tartarus?

Even if she did get beaten by Tirek next tuesday morning, even with the warning Twilight was caught off guard by Cerberus roaming into town. It was Pinkie Pie who was prepared for that, not Twilight. If future Twilight lost Equestria in an afternoon, the same thing would have happened to past Twilight since Tirek had just as much time to escape with or without the warning.

Since Tirek didn't defeat everything next Tuesday morning in the former scenario, he didn't in the latter scenario, so it's impossible for his escape to be the subject of future Twilight's warning.

The only thing I don't understand about that is the fact that it makes no sense.

It's a terrible headcanon anyways.

Wait a moment, what the heck has the endless loop of the second season have to do with Tirek's defeat?

The whole premise of the episode as it is is bullshit. Its a bootstrap paradox.

You dolt, she didn't go back in time to warn about Tirek, she went back in time to warn herself not to get overstressed about her future.

Tirek would have not have been able to do much of anything after he escaped from Tartarus. Princess Celestia said in the first part of the S4 finale that:

>His time in Tartarus left him very weak. He has just now gained enough strength to use his dark powers.

Even if Tirek was the focus of the "disaster" that would occur on Tuesday morning, he would have not have been able to much of anything.

If he was unable to do anything about it, then Future Twilight would not have known to warn her past self about it. Not saying that wasn't when GrogarTirek snuck out of Tartarus, but just that there's no way that Future Twilight could have been trying to warn anyone about that.

Perhaps, Twilight's diligence allowed her to get Cerberus to the gates faster, and thus prevented nastier/more things escaping?
