TV Tropes has this food for thought:
And I wouldn't say Discord's "reformed" so much as he's not aiming to control the world with chaos anymore.Here's a bit of meta-fridge brilliance. This episode was a very divisive one; some fans loved the idea of Discord being redeemed and others hated it, some fans felt the episode felt rushed, it has contradicted a lot of fanfics and fanworks, and a few have even declared Ruined Forever. In other words, by turning to the side of good Discord has created chaos. Discord, you Magnificent Bastard.
Another meta-fridge brilliant moment: Discord sees the ponies as nothing more than cheap playthings. But by the end of the episode, he's forced to admit that "Friendship is Magic." Now imagine all those people watching the show who started out thinking that My Little Pony was just a dumb show built around a line of girls' toys...

Spoiler:- Double Rainboom:
With Queen Chrysalis, it leads to a good in-universe reason as to the whole "Princess" thing: Why do Celestia and Luna insist on using the title "princess"? Because most of their worst enemies are ruled over by kings and queens, who only ever enforce the above stereotype in their dealings with Equestria. That or this sort of thing is just different in Equestria.
Frankly, I don't know what to make of it, seeing as though I don't usually watch the show (or much TV for that matter...), but it was amusing to a degree in my spectrum perception.

You know, I just realized something. In a sense, you could say that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic follows the same pattern as the Paper Mario series up to the third game.
If you saw the video in the link, you see what I'm saying, but if you haven't seen it or played the series, I'll explain it. Season 3 of FiM is kind of like Super Paper Mario in the sense that it is part of a famous series that has gotten a lot of notoriety and that, despite having the same charm and spark that made the series great to begin with, both SPM and FiM can be considered the weakest in their group and pale in comparison to their predecessors (The Thousand Year Door and the original game for the Paper Mario Series and Seasons 1 and 2 for the FiM series).
You know, I just realized something about Cadence. I remember hearing before in one of DigibronyMLP's videos that when Faust was pitching ideas for the depiction of "Queen" Celestia, Hasbro wanted Celestia to be a pretty, pink Alicorn. I just realized that the invention of Cadence was Hasbro's desire coming to fruition.
Here's the video if you're interested.
^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
