This is a little irregular, but somepony named Jesse has sent Equestria Daily what appears to be confirmation that the title of the last two episodes is going to be “A Canterlot Wedding.” Combined with the TV Guide synopsis above, which again applies to both episodes, we have all that we need for a new episode announcement—just a little jumbled up unfortunately. I’ll announce updates on Twitter as usual.
Update 2012-03-24 07:50Z: Added the Zap2it synopses. Since the episodes apparently air on the same day, they put them both up at roughly the same time. First the second one appeared, then disappeared again, and then both went up permanently. (I actually decided to bump this post up, so for the record, the original post date was 2012-03-12 04:15Z.)
Update 2012-03-30 20:10Z: Added a longer synopsis from the Hub April 2012 Highlights.
Update 2012-04-06 12:29Z: Added extended U-verse synopses.
Update 2012-04-14 01:46Z: For a while I thought the occasional “Cadance” typo was just that, but at some point I started to wonder whether it might not be her actual name, maybe intended as a pun on “dance” or due to some trademark issues. Of course there already is a considerable bit of discussion on the topic.
Update 2012-04-21 10:31Z: As always, your Episode Guide will be available on Derpy Hooves News. If the link doesn’t work at least an hour before the episode, kick me (by which I mean that I invite you to leave a comment).
