If you add 26, 26, and 13, you get 65, the minimum number of episodes a show has to reach for successful syndication. Seeing as the show no longer has most of the original production and writing cast, this may be for the best. We can only wait and see.

My MLP internet blackout starts now. I'll get the new episodes on Monday/Tuesday and remove my blinkers after I've watched them.
This'll be easy

Are you excited? I'm excited! I've never been so excited except for the time where we were waiting for Return of Harmony part 1.


UPDATING AS I WATCH!

Spoiler:
Current theory is Cadence has been replaced somehow. Clone, doppleganger, something along those lines.

--

Like it so far!

Good song. Good conflict.

--

So far so awesome!

WOOOONAAAAA

Also Lyra spoke for the first time. Colgate too, I believe.


---

Hrm, would've been better if Twilight wasn't right all along, I think.

---

VILLAIN SONG

Predictability forgiven. So very much.

---

Celestia lost at a DBZ style laser fight? Haha, ridiculous enough to take seriously.

Fight scene? For real?

Nifty! Weaponized party cannon, woo~

Now where the hell is Luna?

---

Oh there she is. Razz

They ran out of time. Or maybe they really wanted that sailor moon-ish "power of love" end. Can't tell; either way, kinda a dud for the climax.

But Fan-frickin-tastic for the rest of it.


Kaijyuu Stamp of Goddamn Approval.

It begins. Almost missed because "EQD DOWN OH MY GOD OHMYGOD- oh it works."

Spoiler:
They misused SQUEEE again. That's not good.

Cadence is mad whats going on?
And terrorism!?
I SAW WOONA TOO!
LYRA TALKS TOO!!
WHAT DID SHE DO TO LYRA!?!? NOOOOOOOOOOO
Luna talks again too.

FUUUUU I looked away when cadence appeared again and all that! DAMMIT.

Everyone in the comments hates Tori Spelling? Weird.
AND OHMYGOD SHE DID SOMETHING TO LYRA AND COLGATE AND THAT SOMEPONY! NOOOOO

Celestia FINALLY does something herself... AND FAILS!

Ohmygod can they have fighting scenes like that in little girls shows?
Pinkie vs changeling and partycannon owning was epic.

LUNA SAVE US!

GOOD GOD WHAT A LAG!

Hah, Luna awake for the party later! "Why is half the city in ruins?"
That's all folks!

Luna's half dozen lines of glory FTWWWW. Poor Twilight, best example of the world is crazy and you're sane. Honestly she could've played it out further. Also the venue for her declaration of evil was terrible.

Alas poor Twilight! Once you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.

--

WTF ZOMBIES

--

Note to self, do not reveal plan or identity

--

Note to self, Celestia got lazorz

--

HOLY FUCK SHIT STACK ON SHIT SANDWICH SHE JUST GOT KILLED?!!

--

WHERE THE FUCK ARE THE GUARDS?

--

Love is that powerful?

lolololololololfreud

--

YOU MUST GO TO THE HELEMENTS OF ARMORY AND RETRIEVE THE CHEKHOV'S GUN

--

Seriously, major tactical blunder. I mean, she just took out Celestia. The only other two things that could've stopped her would've been Luna and the Helements. And she could've ended the latter in a few seconds but noooooo, we have to be all dramatic and let them leave.

--

And for that matter, why would she immediately go for the strongest link in the chain? A bloody fortress drilled into the side of a mountain protected by several standing armies and two FREAKING DEMIGODS. She gains power from nommin' da loves, why didn't she take the rest of equestria AND THEN canterlot? BLUNDER BLUNDER BLUNDER

--

CHANGELINGS! WE MUST MULTIPLE SIMULTANEOUS DEEP STRIKE!

--

Tactical blunder again. Uniform issues. There was no advantage to looking exactly like the ponies you were ordered to kill. Or suck the love out of.
Sweet mother of all that is good, the fanfics that will spawn from this will be fell and without mercy.

--

Wait, did Pinky just bring Artillery?

--

Wait, did they just lose?

--

"Magic did it."

--

Lol u won't get away wiv it

bitch plz i eat ppl

--

HANG ON

Cadence or whatever makes people love each other.

Queen evil bitch feeds off of love.

TACTICAL BLUNDER WHY ISN'T SHE FEEDING OFF OF CADENCE

--

THIS IS IMPLIED EVERYTHING

--

I'm offensive and I find this British

--

DJ Pon3 says hai

--

AJ got violinz

--

Srsly someone kill Spike

--

That it?

FUCK YEAH.

Though there's nothing stopping the changelings from returning.

Or just invading the rest of Equestria land.

GG ponies.

GG indeed.

Hang on while I collect my jaw from the floor...

...

There, now;

Spoiler:
I suppose that the whole 'power of love!' ending was a bit cheesy, but I think it's nice that they didn't use the Elements of Harmony for once.

And honestly, having a bit of a cheesy ending will not spoil the raw epic that was the fight scene. I did not see that one coming. It was also nice to see Celestia actually (try to) do something concrete for a change. Not getting even a shot of Luna fighting for a few seconds is a bit of a disappointment, though. I suppose we should be happy they showed her at all.

Edit: Low forum-fu...

Spoiler:
Heh yeah I was mildly disappointed that Luna didn't show up and kick some ass in Nightmare Moon form, but I (mostly) forgive them due to their awareness she wasn't used.

"Did I miss anything?"

Still... imagine if right after they were cornered by the mass of changlings, a purple smoke drifted in and some ominous clouds formed overhead...



Another awesome thing I forgot to mention: Applejack's hat at the very end. I literally laughed out loud when I saw her sneak it on.

I cried like a baby the whole time.

Spoiler:
But seriously, that was by far my favorite episodes. I mean c'mon, 3 songs! Luna, Vinyl, Fighting, Explosions, (could have asked for guards helping in the fighting, but i guess it was implied by all the explosions in the city), HOLY CRAP SHE BEATS UP CELESTIA! oh, and did i mention the songs...

Spoiler:
I had a whole long list of awesome things. Too long, really. So I'll just say this.

-Tons of great worldbuilding and continuity nods.
-Changelings are bucking awesome, sad that the queen apparently doesn't have a copy of the Evil Overlord's Handbook.
-Conservation of Ninjutsu fight with M6 and changelings was crazy in a good way.

Y'know, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore:










Also, a single choice image.



Oh yes, AJ, we saw you.

One last thing:

Spoiler:
They put the wedding rings on their horns. Now think about the fanon view of horns as being secondary sexual characteristics. Yeah, not unthinking that.

That was bloody fantastic. Warning, thought-vomit incoming.

Spoiler:

For the TL;DR version: I loved everything about the finale. Sure, it was trope-ish at points, and time constraints clearly showed, but fuck it, that was a fun ride.

First off, addressing the power of love ending: Doesn't bother me one bit. Cheesy, sure. Trope-tastic? Duh. But obligatory all considered? Eeeeyup.

Loved the villain design. Insect/changeling evil ponies with a queen and drones? Hells to the yeah, that's friggin' awesome.

Songs! The songs! So many! Yay!

Soooo much Pinkie! Ready the party cannon and Twi-repeater, and stand by to repel changelings!

We pretty much have canon proof that Luna is a) completely nocturnal and b) lives on the moon full time. Suggested at before in Luna Eclipsed, but nice to see it reaffirmed. Loved that they made sure she had appearances though.

Celestia not all powerful? Cool to see. The falling crown was a stellar touch.

Let me just mention the fight scene again. Awesome!

Applejack and the hat! And fiddle! Yay!

Spike playing with pony dolls? Fuck yeah, brony!

Rarity being awesome and herself throughout. Love ya, Rarity!

Shining Armor is in for an awesome wedding night. You go, player.

Also, clearly maintaining royal bloodlines isn't a huge deal. Kinda makes sense when your royals are immortal.

DeLancie being saved up for something special next season, I guess?

I need to stop, this could go on forever. Seriously. I. Loved. Every. Minute.

Several songs, Vinyl's eye color was shown, FUCKING BEST SPECIES EVER, overall: Possibly best episode yet. Helps that I love insectoids.

Post  CreativityIsProof on Sun Apr 22, 2012 3:20 pm

this gets me thinking,

Spoiler:
If Celestia isnt all powerful, and theres a third alicorn who ages normally like other ponies it seems to me like there is another main "player" in the whole controlling the universe thing. If Celestia is immortal (As well as Luna) I find it interesting to see another alicorn, because that means that celestia (or Luna) had children, correct?

oh, and its awesome to see a male lead finally.

How did you misspell "Pinkie Pie" so badly? Silly brony.

EDIT: To make this slightly more constructive than a best pony debate post,
Spoiler:
did anyone else hear a distinct kissing sound when RD helped Fluttershy up during the fight scene? I've listened to the clip multiple times, and I swear I hear it. That and RD's face was awfully close to Fluttershy's at the same exact moment. I'm not too into shipping, and hence don't have a bias for any particular pairing, but I felt I had to point it out. I would never think Hasbro/Hub would put/leave something like that in, so I'm betting awkward coincidence, but damn, I can't stop hearing it.

They've been teasing shipping for a while now.

Maybe you didn't notice this scene from Mare Do Well:
Spoiler:


To be fair that particular frame was hidden behind a camera flash, and people just extrapolated to make it. Also AJ didn't seem interested D:

I always thought that Cadence was originally written as a regular unicorn, but that Hasbro wanted a "princess" that was actually pink (They made pink Celestia toys for freakin' ages).

However, she ended up as an alicorn in the show, so that's what is canon. Maybe Celestia maintains a mortal backup-line of alicorns ever since Luna was banished, just in case she should be killed for whatever reason.

After getting defeated by Chrysalis, I'm thinking that she isn't that amazingly powerful as she wants to be seen as, just crazy prepared and knowledgeable.
