Applejack knows more than people give her credit for.

She catches everything....she just lets it go because, hey, when you live in the same town as Pinkie Pie.....

Why does it look like in the 2nd to last panel, when Celestia is bowing, it looks like Rarity is staring at her flank?

A lady does not stare.  She peruses.

This is actually pretty legit.
:iconimthinkingplz:
But then again
:iconimsureplz:
sincerely suspecting someone and unintentionally causing troubles are two different things.
:iconidontthinksobetchplz:
In Lesson Zero Twilight was clearly unthoughtful and her original plan which, although questionable, itself wouldn't have been that bad, got out of hoof, whereas in Canterlot wedding she did exactly what she planned to do, only that this time her actions wouldn't resolve anything anyway. Yes, she was right, but she did not have the means to convince others about it. The magics Fake Cadance did were indeed suspicious and would've actually worked as a strong evidence... *desk slam*

...had Twilight mentioned it was green instead of the usual pink! * www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3WUFD… starts playing *

I think magic aura's can either change, or they're actually normally invisible, and they're only there as a visual cue for the audience.  Twilights and Celestia's magic changed color between season 1 and season 2, and if magic isn't supposed to change color than that would have set off red flags and risked exposure any time she used magic.

Basic spells invisible? I find that highly unlikely. There are some spells with varying and fixed colors, though. As for the change between seasons, I consider that as a visual improvement rather than canonical occurence. I'm indeed more convinced, that there was a risk to be found out due green spells.

Apart from theories like Fiery Joker's, it's really easy to see Chrysalis as an idiot, who wouldn't give a second thought on this regard. Even if basic spells' colors could be changed, she could've either ignored that along with any other effort she could've made to resemble the real thing, or, as suggested on the video, retained it intentionally.

In MMMMystery on the Friendship express Rarity shut the blinds to make the car completely dark so she could take a bite of the cake.  However, there is no magic aura to be seen. Not until the scene is flashbacked and it's used to show just how that happened.  If using magic always creates a glow and magic aura than shutting the blinds would have exposed Rarity right there while she was trying to hide herself. 

So there is credence to my theory that the colored magic is just there to show that a spell is being used and by which pony simply for the audience's benefit, which is why Twilight didn't notice that it changed. I DO think we need to ignore the color changes that began in season 2 because it did look better, but if magic colors can't change that would be all the ironclad proof that would be needed to show that it wasn't really Cadence, even though the idea at the time was , "Cadence turned evil" and not "That's not really Cadence."

I will agree that Chrysalis isn't that smart. Princess of Love acting like a total jerk to everyone, (when she didn't even care about the wedding in the first place. ) sending Twilight down to the Caves when nobody believed her and Twilight felt mistaken, and then being too busy celebrating to notice she was about to be defeated.

This is just a fan theory, but she might have something intelligent. I remember asking on a forum who put in the threat to Canterlot. It led to super beefed up security. Someone responded that Chrysalis herself did it after impersonating Cadence, so everyone's efforts would be focused on an external threat, leaving her free to do her preparations to win from the inside. 

I watched the video, and it was interesting. It gave some new perspectives, at least.

Excellent point! Although I could personally ignore such single-episode-only details if it didn't fit to my earlier, reasoned view of Equestria (basically, consider it as a mistake *cough* Daring Don't *cough*), I accept that as a solid argument. I also tip my hat for stating how Twilight considered Cadence as evil, not fake.

So Chrysalis was safe as far as spells are conserned: basic spells are invisible and the green spell, even if visible, could not have worked as an evidence without somepony, who actually knows what headache curing spells are supposed to look like.

I don't think she was stupid for sending Twilight to Canterlot Caves, though. Fiery Joker had some valid points on that regard. As for why she'd make the threat in the first place, I'd imagine, that impersonating even half of the citiziens would've been too complex operation to maintain for the needed time. Perhaps tiring Shining with such a spell was part of gaining control over him?

Oh my god, I never caught that!

Er, I mean, I could how Twilight's friends just abandoning her like that came out of nowhere so that even Trollestia would say "What?  I didn't plan this, I swear!" and mean it.

But the "I have a lot to think about" line (and I'm pretty sure it WAS "I have a lot to think about, not "YOU have a lot to think about") was pretty mean and I was too taken aback by the sheer cruelty of the scene to remember Lesson Zero.

Yeah.  You'd think that what will all that 'saving her sister' and 'saving her kingdom' and 'serving her faithfully to the point of near self-destruction', Celestia would cut Twi a break or two.

Yeah, I found it odd how none of Twilight's friends seemed to care about the obvious distressed state of Twilight choosing instead to comfort Cadence whom none of them know beyond acquaintance level. And you would think Celestia would notice the change in behavior. Still, I find both the episodes and characters to be entertaining despite the occasional illogical/irrational behavior. :)
Excellent and amusing comic!

Really. I didn't even notice until making this comic, but it's not like they walked out of her feeling awkward or worried. They were all huffy, as if they had been personally offended, or trying to distance themselves from her. That made NO SENSE! But yeah, I do think the episode has a lot of good stuff.

And then you follow it up by giving them an ancient evil to deal with and telling them "it must be you and you alone", when it doesn't. Be sure to make it sound proud afterwards, so she doesn't realize the real lesson was "Don't trust Celestia."

:icontrollestiaplz::iconsaysplz:Gamble with the fate of two kingdoms just to Twilight squirm and suffer? Why, that sounds like a marvelous plan!

Hopefully season 4 will give us a good Celestia episode. She could use some time in the spotlight.

It's funny. I really don't care for the character in the show at all, but she's so much fun in the fandom, she's one of my favorites here! Whether she's played straight, and fleshed out to be more interesting and endearing, or parodied mercilessly for laughs, she's a much stronger character here.

Yeah, that was messed up. You know, that was one of the things that disappointed me about the season finale. I thought that all of Ponyville would see havoc as all ponies' cutie marks got mixed up. You know, one of those fun calamity episodes. Instead it was just the mane six, and not even all of them.

This was a great take that to the episode, and addressed my new hatred for the episode (first it was just "Shining Armor and Cadance totally stole the kill and everything was made for them to seem like the heroes", which was pretty stupid in the long run) and really, I want to see more people call out these dolts.
