Seems this week’s preview material has come in the form of two different social media posts. The first came earlier this afternoon via HubWorld’s official twitter account, while the second was posted on the official My Little Pony facebook page. Both images can be found after the page break because of spoilers.
Zap2it has published the title and air date of season 4 episode 9 to air on January 11, 2014: “Pinkie Apple Pie.”
Thanks to Jordan for pointing out that this is likely to be the episode that was previewed at San Diego Comic-Con—written by Natasha Levinger and storyboarded by Emmett Hall and Tony Cliff. Hence, we can look forward to to the song Apples to the Core!
Pinkie Pie becomes the Princess of Pie in the season mini-arc of 407 "Pinkie Apple Pie", 414 "Pie in the Sky", and 419 "Maude Pie"

Episodic storyline and image of 406
“Power Ponies” — When Spike and the ponies are transported into the city of Maretropolis in his favorite comic book, Spike is disappointed when he becomes a boring sidekick instead of one of his favorite heroes. But when the ponies come up against pony super villain, The Mane-iac, Spike becomes the last line of defense to help save the day, on “My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic,” Saturday, December 21 at 10:30 a.m. ET/ 7:30 a.m. PT on the Hub Network.
Furthermore it is revealed that Mane-iac is voiced by Ellen Kennedy. I’m guessing this may be her.
On the writerly side, “Power Ponies” is a big collaboration by Charlotte Fullerton, Betsy McGowen, and Meghan McCarthy.
