Damn, this episode was freaking amazing. And incredibly dark too. The intro sequence felt like it was from some RPG game, which made it even more awesome.

There were many interesting things shown about Equestria we didn't know previously or were speculating. As usual, I won't reveal any spoilers for those who haven't watched, but this episode made me think and theory craft a LOT. It all felt like a part of some bigger scheme.

If I remember correctly, she was in the crowd of Crystal ponies on the fare.

I saw berry Punch and another stallion who was looking like Dr Whooves, but I didn't noticed Derpy in chystal Empire^^

In episode 3, there was pony with the same mane color ( only the back of Her head was visible at the corner of the screen) so I was not sure it was really Her

I think the animator are using more the others background ponies as easter egg in this season (like Sea Swirl and berry punch) but I hope We 'll see Derpy more often

Omigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigosh!!!!!

Best episode yet! :D

I loved all the stuff they crammed into this episode: the return of Flutterbitch, the Gremlins reference (that's the old "Chinese" shop in the beginning), the Empire Strikes Back reference ("unlearn what you have learned", plus her training takes place in a swamp), Pinkie Pie's dad hiring Trixie, R63 Applejack, and ERMAHGERD, TRIXIE'S BACK!! Also, now apparently Twilight can break the fourth wall! :D

Plus this episode was just a barrel of laughs. Fluttershy getting in Twilight's face and basically threatening to tear her limb from limb was just freaking hilarious. They also referenced Winter Wrap Up with the mention of Applejack and Spike getting crushed in a snowball. I'm still laughing at how Trixie generated a computer mouse and put Pinkie Pie's mouth in the garbage bin! :rofl: I was very confused for a second, then it all made sense: it's Animator vs. Pinkie Pie! :D

And did anyone else besides me find Trixie's little stumble to be just the teensiest bit adorable? ;)

Yes! I agree with everything you said. There were insane amounts of references AND fan service.
I did find Trixie quite adorable at the end, and I was quite surprised that she actually apologized!
