She is getting written out of the series to make room for Trixie.

The addition of Trixie to the Mane 6 will make a great comedic foil for Twilight Sparkle.

Trixie will be introduced as Luna's new apprentice, like Twilight is for Celestia.

The more I think about it, the less I liked Saturday's episode. The gags and references were good, but Rarity, RD and Fluttershy's actions just seemed out of character. I would've preferred sleep walking Pinkie over "I just couldn't help myself". Without a proper motive, the whole thing felt like a waste, the plot felt like it belonged in a G1 episode.

Yeah, they wouldn't just destroy something that meant so much to Pinkie and the Cakes, not to mention, it's implied that they woudl all get to try it the next day after the competition anyways.

Most suspicious thing about the episode was how Twilight talked about clues, not as something you need for proper investigations, but as something you better not leave if you want to successfully commit a crime. She totally ate some of the cake.

I'm convinced that honest Applejack got away with it. Twilight knows/suspects she was guilty, but she can't prove it, so she kept her suspicions to herself.

First, look at this scene where the ponies are tempted.


Twilight's the only normal-looking one. Applejack fits right in. Applejack was also the first pony to try and make an inappropriate grab for the cake.

Rainbow Dash stole a bite, but she got seen and left evidence.
Fluttershy stole a bite, but she got seen and left evidence.
Rarity stole a bite, but she got seen and left evidence.

Then Twilight pressed Pinkie to admit that she fell asleep on the job and there was a long window for a fourth someone to quietly steal a bite unobserved and leave no clue. Twilight wouldn't logically have pushed for that info if she had herself stolen a bite during that window.

And in this episode's inspiration, Murder on the Orient Express [major spoiler if you haven't read/seen it yet], everyone was guilty.

Twilight was the detective, and Pinkie was the client, so I can let them go. And then Pinkie went and ate the whole leftovers anyways.

Most website code does not have Pinkie Pie calling you out on trying to read it. Nor Twilight Sparkle lecturing you and telling you to write Princess Celestia on what you just learned.

Basically, the website has in-character error messages if you try to cheat with the downloads.

Oh so that's what those messages were. Clever.
So does this mean a Brony coder or was the page done in-studio?

The eyes were probably placeholders so this is by no means definitive. Same ones they use for RD and some other ponies.

Ah, binary typing. Or a Morse Code system. Left hoof on dot, right hoof on dash, space bar to separate letters, words, and sentences. All you need to type anything you want.

If you're referring to my "Applejack got away with it" theory, a red herring is a fake clue that prevents you from using the real clues to realize the whole picture.

But Twilight wasn't really finding clues, she was finding evidence implicating ponies, and temporarily keeping it from Pinkie/the audience, because she didn't want Pinkie leaping to conclusions and running off half-cocked until her investigation was concluded.

Pinkie falling asleep was kind of a red herring in that it made a big opening in security where an investigator could easily conclude that a single, large crime took place, but Twilight (through diligent investigation of Pinkie's story) had already come to the conclusion that there were multiple successful smaller crimes. At the end of the investigation, Pinkie's sleep was no red herring to Twilight, nor did it need repeating to the audience because we were still being kept in the dark. All it did was tell Twilight where Pinkie's usefulness in identifying culprits ended, and where the gigantic hole in security had begun.

Anyone who was satisfied that Rainbow/Fluttershy/Rarity are the end of the story because they have guilty culprits in hand is no better than Pinkie thinking the story was over as soon as she was shown Rainbow Dash's blue feather.

It's no longer about favorite ponies, the reasons we like the show or the best pony race. It's an endless series of animated GIFs, brought by ahoyhoy and DrForester. PonyGAF, and its consumption of GAFfers, has become a well-oiled machine. PonyGAF has changed. Forumers bear My Little Pony tags, use My Little Pony-tagged avatars.

From the article
“We want to justify something big and crazy and exciting,” McCarthy explains, noting that the two-part wedding episode has an “epic fantasy element.” Having seen it myself, I can concur; the hour-long special is ambitious, absorbing, and thoroughly entertaining,

The hype has been doubled!
