Even Starlight doesn't understand why the mane 6 so easily accepted her.

The hair is weird. It's like they made a bad copy of Rarity? Or maybe they were just going for something that would be perceived as younger?

My remf comment is just about why we had our scare, just a 6 months after we got together. No birth control is 100% effective.

Probably a Trixie episode.Possible. But it seems a bit obvious. Also, Trixie had her second chance.

Nordstern

Well, how many other reformed horses are there? Surely not Sunny. So, maybe Luna, Babs Seed or Diamond Tiara?

edit: actually, Trixie was never reformed or renounced her ways, so it can't be her.

Mortalitis

I am going to bet it is Discord or Trixie, no other characters that I can see Twilight still having a problem with despite being 'reformed'. More likely Discord as set up will be easier as he seems to come and go as he pleases, unless Trixie actually moves in to Ponyville rather than being a vagabond magician. Depends on literally you take 'formally bad pony'.

:tinfoil: time!

Being what it is, 4chan frequently "leaks" episode lists. The latest incarnation popped up without anyone making a big deal about it.

However, the other day Zap2it updated their listing, and for a a while it listed almost identical to the "leaked" list.

When asked about how legitimate they were, producer @TheBiggestJim and writer @joshhaber only had this to say:

Particular in the list is the upcoming one titled 'Stranger Than Fan Fiction'. While the above was hitting the Internet a latina VA on the show made the following tweet:

"I can't believe it. An episode of MLP [where] they are going to a convention! And there's pony fans! And they talk of their cosplays hahaha this is incredible"



So, this may be how the hiatus ends!

Some of those names are way too outlandish to be real. "Flurry Heart of the Swarm" is practically trademark violation.

And are we on hiatus? I would have assumed it would start after episode 13. We're only on episode 12.

Interesting. Back so soon means that maybe we get a (short) season 7 before the movie after all? Otherwise we'll be on hiatus for a full year between the end of S6 and the movie...

A full year hiatus is not beyond the realm of possibility and would imagine that it's more likely than S7 being out.

S06E14 - The Cart Before the Ponies - Aug 6

The Cutie Mark Crusaders get the chance to race in the annual Applewood Derby; their teammates Rarity, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash take over the competition.


S06E15 - 28 Pranks Later - Aug 13

When Rainbow Dash's pranking gets out of hand, the ponies decide to give her a taste of her own medicine - zom-pony style!


S06E16 - The Times They Are a Changeling - Aug 20

When Spike travels with Twilight and Sunburst back to the Crystal Empire to visit Flurry Heart, they discover the entire empire in a panic due to the reported presence of Changeling spy.

I'm reserving my optimism for there even being a season 7. Not saying there is any solid reason to think that, but the show will have to end eventually, and more successful shows have ended sooner, and movies tend to make nice end-caps.

Hmm, well they mentioned at BronyCon that they'd already done the voice acting (pre-lay, so done a year in advance) for season 7, so I'd guess it's happening ;)

Why the hell do they even need a mid-season hiatus anyway? Didn't they already make the episodes? When I saw there were no forthcoming episodes I thought "well, that was an anticlimactic end to the season".

North American TV networks are weird.
