The "Shadow Wars"

The machinations of the Cosmic Concepts have shaped the history of the Ponies for ten thousand years.  But now their mistakes have cracked the Cosmos, and the Shadows seep through to claim our own Universe for their dark and predatory purposes.  If they can gain a bridgehead on Equestria's Earth, this will be but the first step in a war of extermination against our continuum, a war which will end in the destruction of all life in our own Universe.

Can Celestia lead the defense of the Earth and save, not only her little Ponies, but all Earthlife, from utter annihilation?  Can Luna be redeemed from the Shadows and return to her former greatness?  Will Discord prove a powerful ally, or betray them all to damnation?  Can a new generation of powerful beings aid them enough to bring victory?  Or will the Earth die, drained of its vitality by the sinister Shadows?

General:

I liked this episode, even though I was disappointed that Cheese Sandwich didn't show.  (At the same time, I was relieved that he didn't show with a wife and five children, or in a manner strongly implying that he's been avoiding Pinkie, because this preserves my concept that Cheese and Pinkie meet occasionally, which is one reason their romance is proceeding fairly slowly -- my Pinkie models much of her sexual morality on that of her mother Cloudy Quartz, and her mother's very traditional -- and romantic, but most outside the Pie Rock Farm don't get to see that side of her).

Specific:

Episode confirms that Pinkie Pie can travel by some very strange pathways, as what she was doing was temporally impossible -- it would have taken months if not years, and at least a week or more to engage in her planned travel by rail, wagon and foot.  Some of the ways she went were backwards in time.  

Also, that Pinkie doesn't plan her actions by normal logic -- she traveled to Dodge (exactly in the opposite direction from Ponyville to the Crystal Empire), because her precognition told her that this was the way to succeed.  She didn't even consider the issue of geography until she got there.  The reason she went to Dodge was actually to save the life of Cherries Jubilee and her team, though Pinkie didn't know this until she did it.

Additionally, the way she saved their lives was through probability twisting.  She tried (and failed) to do it the mundane way (even though she summoned objects like the alarm clock from hammerspace).  She then succeeded in doing it by doing something funny-scary and having the Wonderbolts happen along at the last moment.

I'm not sure why the magic directed her to save Cherries Jubilee.  I mean, Pinkie would have done that anyway on general principles -- she's a good Pony and she actually knows Cherries Jubilee -- but I suspect that Cherries has some sort of destiny important to larger ends.  Or, she might even have been saving one of the team for a special purpose.  And I don't think that PINKIE knows why either.

The important thing she brought back from Yakyakistan was that the young Yak, unencumbered by the dignity of his elders, was willing to be friendly to a stranger from another land, and that this -- rather than an elaborate simulation of Yakyakistan, was what she needed to do to win over the Yak delegation.  Pinkie didn't even understand what she was learning at that moment -- she only realized it later.

The moment Pinkie had realized this, the magic snapped her back to Ponyville -- the better to avoid creating dangerous Paradox.

Headcanon:  Yakyakistan is in another part of the mountains where Crimson Quartz's father lost his legion, along with Lady Tourmaline's first love, over a thousand years ago.  They keep safe from the Windigos and other horrors of the Frozen Wastes by a very strongly Lawful culture in which everything must be done just right.  This empowers a magical barrier around their lands.  Unfortunately, this makes them very, very inept at dealing with foreigners, since they've been doing this for many thousands of years.  When they leave their culture-matrix, they can go more than a little bit crazy.  As the Mane Six found out.

Also, Yakyakistan is going to become important to the Shadow Wars.  I'm not yet sure how or why.

Conclusion:  Pinkie Pie is awesome.

Also, this is Pinkie just coming into her full adult powers as an Earth Pony.  The Alicorn Thalia is going to make one amazing Princess, I'd imagine!

WE know of changeling double edge sword. The changelings easily can achieve victory as long as their foes have some type of love, it is when their foes lack love for others that the changelings struggle.

Emperor Incitatus resisted Chrysalis' influence because he only loved himself, and forcibly draining that love did not give her the power to beat Celestia (while Shining Armors love of Cadence did).

When Sergio shows up, Chrysalis notes that dragons can't show love (With spike objecting at that), and must resort to a verbal ploy to engineer their escape.

which ironically shows that a changeling greatest enemy is one who is a narcissist.)
