The episode begins with the girls on set for the latest Daring Do movie as a reward for helping save Camp Everfree thanks to a director who was a camp alumni. However, things are going awry with stolen props and set dangers. Looks like we have a mystery, gang!

One suspect is the star, Chestnut Magnifico, who is looking to get out of a contract due to time constraints so she can move on to the next project. The other suspect is director Canter Zoom’s niece Juniper Montage who knows her way around the studio. So yes, it’s her.

This whole episode is one big homage to classic Scooby-Doo complete with chase montages and Velma Twilight deducing how Juniper was the culprit. And Juniper would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their dog! (Sorry, not sorry!)

There is some eye candy to this episode such as the Rainbooms in Power Ponies form (Sunset as the Mane-iac since there are only six Power Ponies). There’s also an homage to Raiders of the Lost Ark at the end (which is ruined by Rainbow’s over-enthusiasm).

It’s not a bad episode, but it does come off slightly better than “Dance Magic”. The next one is the one most people are interested in, though, as Starlight Glimmer gets a turn through the mirror (and Sunset goes back through it).
