Me too. I'll be a lot happier with the, ah, less good episodes of the season (of which, unfortunately, I thought this was one) if they all sum up to something better.

We have the thread, the fangs, possibly the comic... we can definitely surmise that the six keys each have something to do with the Mane Six...

^ Don't forget the shadowed something at the end of "Castle-Mane-ia", too... Still wondering if that was meant to just be a fun little "Haha, it was Pinkie Pie the whole time... or was it?!" to end the ep, vs. a set up for something later.

As to this weekend's ep: I loved it. 9.5, maybe even another 10. Really firing on all cylinders this time around.

However, it's 3AM and I'm tired, so I'll ramble about it in a bit more detail later.

I've heard that the Castle Mane-ia's writer, Josh Haber, was interviewed by Everfree Network and he said that the Shadow was just a one-off gag...but I don't think I believe him. These little stingers at the end of episodes seem to be setting up the story arc, and that Shadow Pony end would make a great villain teaser.

^That's what's making this season so much fun! We don't know what the Chekov's gun is or the red herring!

Rainbow Dash's reaction is what sells it.

Agreed, those were the two stronger episodes this season. This week's was Rarity being taken advantage of and yet persevering; that was a really fun story. Also great to hear basically everyone in the mane cast in some other role! Everyone except Tara Strong was heard as somepony else, which was great to hear.
