Chasing Signs

Looks like Equestria Daily has gathered some info on the upcoming Season 3 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  As expected, Princess Cadance, now Twilight's sister-in-law, returns, taking on the same appearance as promoted in the toy merchandising, but what's this?  So have Twilight and her friends!  Looks like they're getting prepped up for the so-called Crystal Faire.  A discovered DVD with an anticipated release date of December 4th reveals two new episode titles - "The Crystal Empire", Parts 1 and 2.  According to sources, this Crystal Empire just simply appeared in the far north of Equestria and it's up to the six main characters summoned by Princess Celestia (boo) to keep it safe.  Apparently, the only thing that can is this Crystal Heart, which I suspect looks identical to Cadance's cutie mark.  It's either that or Cadance is the Crystal Heart in the same sense that the Matoran are the heart of the city Metru Nui from BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui.  Now what kind of evil force could be at work that threatens the Crystal Empire?  Is it the mysterious dark character whose head shot was revealed on the web site?  Or is it Discord, who has the potent to make a terrifying return to the series, much to the delight of John de Lancie and his wonderful Discord-voicing talent?  Since the DVD is set for release on December 4th, that means Season 3 is likely to start at either around that time or much later.  Well the latter doesn't seem entirely plausible because why release DVD episodes before they air on television?  I mean, it's... uncommon, right?  Whatever, screw this whole thing.  I'm obviously not interested.  I'll do the critiques on the new episodes either way, but unless the series gets better, I'm wasting my time chasing signs of any improvement.
