Well if I do say so myself we did an excellent job guessing what will happen in season 3.
So here are all the categories of what we thought would happen. The ones with stars inayofuata to them are the ones we got right.
1. Background Characters*
2. Mane Six Past and Future*
3. Princess Celestia and Luna*
4. Equestrian History and Other Info*
7. Shining Armor and Cadance*
8. Scootaloo Episode*
9. CMC Get their Cutiemarks
This did not happen, but the CMC did get about 3 episodes in this season where they played key roles: One Bad Apple, Sleepless in Ponyville, and Just for Sidekicks
No movie in season 3, but The Hub is making a spin off series called Equestria Girls.
Now I'll be using pictures with descriptions to talk zaidi in detail about what we got right. I have created a bingo board with everything we got right to provide zaidi visual aid. And without further ado, let's begin:
We got 4 bingos! Sorry the pictures are a little blurry.
1. Background Characters: A Royal Guard speaks in The Crystal Empire Part 1
Fancy Pants is seen in Too Many Pinkie Pies and many background ponies have speaking parts.
Zecora played an important role in the episode Magic Duel. Twilight trained with her after being banished. Zecora can use magic as shown by her refilling her cup by waving her hoof around it. Zecora is also seen in Just for Sidekicks.
Lyra is seen in Magic Duel drinking some type of beverage out of a straw and Bon Bon is of course next to her.
The whole Apple Family is seen again. I bet many people were really happy to see Babs and Braeburn again!
Spitfire plays a key role in the episode Wonderbolts Academy.
Derpy! Despite the fact that many people said Derpy would not seen she has about 5 appearances in Magical Mystery Cure.
Vinyl Scratch, Berry Punch, Colgate, and many others make appearances in Magical Mystery Cure. Unfortunately, Octavia was not seen in this season.
2.Mane Six Future and Past: In Wonderbolt Academy, Rainbow Dash gets admitted into Wonderbolt Academy and became a lead pony. In Games Ponies Play we see a stallion that is most likely Rainbow's dad.
In Apple Family Reunion there are two shooting stars that were constantly being shown at night. It is said that they are to represent Applejack, Apple Bloom, and Big Macintosh's parents.
Mane sixes destinies from the season 3 finale: Rainbow controls the weather, Rarity does fashion, Pinkie spreads joy, Fluttershy cares for animals, Applejack runs the Apple Farm, and Twilight becomes a princess (her parents were present at the coronation)
I won't talk about how I feel about Magical Mystery Cure in this article, but if you are interested I wrote an article about my thoughts. Its called Why Twilight Becoming an Alicorn Princess Makes Sense (Analysis on Magical Mystery Cure)
3. Princess Celestia and Princess Luna: Princess Luna has the ability to enter a pony's dreams ("I am the princess of the night, thus it is my duty to come into your dreams." -Princess Luna in Sleepless in Ponyville)
