Do you guys think Discord was released by the CMC’s arguing? Or were they just in the wrong place at the time?
If I remember correctly, in the episode it was stated that Discord was able to escape because Celestia and Luna no longer were in control of the Elements of Harmony. But that raises the question, why hadn’t he escaped earlier? it can be assumed that Luna lost control of her Elements when she became Nightmare Moon, which was over 1000 years ago. Also, the Mane 6 have been in sole control of them at least since season one began (I’m hesitant to call it a year because the timeline is very non-structured).
Personally, I’d like to think that it would take more than an argument between some schoolchildren to unleash the greatest evil in Equestria, but that just raises the question of “Then why DID Discord wait until now?”
Any thoughts on the matter? Discuss, please.
My idea. Discord was able to be unleashed years ago. At any time, he could have unpetrified and wreaked havoc. Why did he choose this moment? Because he’s the original troll.
And trolls never have to make sense.
