Really good. It seems like there was so much going on in this episode, it's a wonder they were able to fit it into 22 minutes. :here:

A malicious and dangerous poster, it seeks revenge against the forum who abandoned it. Its shackles were reinforced in order to keep its violent nature under control.

This was the most ethically troubling episode because it implies a rigid linear structure to time that makes even attempts to go back in time merely another link in the chain; everything is fixed, causality is merely rhetorical, and free will is an illusion. Twilight Sparkle will have always gone back in time. To ask why is pointless; she will have gone back to inspire herself to go back.

S5E26 kind of dunked on that, by not only directly showing the characters messing up a specific event but doing so in numerous ways with numerous outcomes, and I hate it, because it's not as existential.
