The idea that the CMCs will disband after one or more of them gets their cutie mark is rather silly to me. Who’s to say they won’t become a group of friends like the mane 6, who all have different and unique talents but still stay strong together? The real question to me is how are the writers going to handle the episode (or episodes) of the CMCs getting their cutie marks? My theory is that the episode will start with one of them discovering their cutie mark. Most of the episode will be about the other two freaking out about their still blank flank, but the episode will end with all three of them realizing their true talents. The audience will go “D’aaaaaaw!” and the CMCs will start their own adventures together. Yeah I know, I’m a master writer.
Bonus points if it ends up that the other two discover their talents because they fear they will drift apart and attempt to give a show to each other in case they do. They discover their talents when they give a show to the others, and afterwards end up saying that they still wanted to hang out no-matter what.
…or is that too cliche?
X2 Combo if the one already with a cutie mark fears the same thing, and has much the same idea.
