Title Synopsis
1 The Crystalling, part 1 Twilight and the rest of the Mane Six head to the Crystal Empire for the "Crystalling" of Cadence and Shining Armor's new baby while Twilight takes the opportunity to present Starlight with her first friendship lesson. Unfortunately neither Starlight's lesson nor the baby visit go as planned.
2 The Crystalling, part 2 As Starlight tries to pick up the pieces of the failed reunion with her old friend, Twilight and the rest of the Mane Six struggle to save the Crystal Empire from an eternal winter.
3 The Gift of the Maud Pie While in Manehattan looking for the ideal location for her new store, Rarity has to help Pinkie Pie find the perfect gift for her sister, Maud -- without Maud finding out.
4 On Your Marks

With their cutie marks finally acquired, the Cutie Mark Crusaders struggle with the question of what to do now. Apple Bloom suggests they embrace their destinies, but she and her friends don't exactly agree on how.

This is the very first episode not starring the Mane Six ponies or Spike. However, it would take place during the events of The Gift of the Maud Pie (with editing). How it actually could have worked out can be seen by clicking here.

6 No Second Prances When Starlight Glimmer starts becoming friends with a fellow formerly-bad pony, Twilight tries to stop her.

12 Spice Up Your Life Pinkie Pie and Rarity are called to Canterlot by the map to solve a friendship problem. They discover a father and daughter whose relationship is strained as they struggle to keep their restaurant open. Pinkie and Rarity both want to help, but have different ideas on what "help" means.
13 Stranger Than Fan Fiction Rainbow Dash attends the Daring Do Convention in Manehattan and meets a pony who hates Daring Do as much as she loves it. The two of them get wrapped up in a real life Daring Do adventure and need to settle their differences if they have any chance of surviving.
14 The Cart Before the Ponies The Cutie Mark Crusaders are excited for the chance to race in the annual Applewood Derby -- until their teammates Rarity, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash take over the competition.
15 28 Pranks Later When Rainbow Dash's pranking gets out of hand, everypony decides to give her a taste of her own medicine -- zom-pony style!
16 The Times They Are a Changeling Spike travels with Twilight and Sunburst back to the Crystal Empire to visit Flurry Heart, only to discover that the entire Empire is in a panic due to the reported presence of Changeling spy.
17 Dungeons & Discords When the Mane 6 leave town, Discord decides to join Spike and Big Mac's "top secret" Guys' Night. Much to Discord's dismay, it turns out to be an evening of fantasy role-playing.
18 Buckball Season Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy surprise everyone when they turn out to be Ponyville's best Buckball players, so Applejack and Rainbow Dash agree to coach them against Appleoosa.
