My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic “The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows”

It’s always interesting for the episode that follows a 10 star one. Last week we had the unexpectedly fantastic “Crusaders of the Lost Mark,” where we saw Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo acquire their Cutie Marks. Today’s story stars Pinkie Pie.
