You know, the recent episode reminds me of that one episode of Ed, Edd, and Eddy, where the Eds have to go through a long and tedious trading process in order to get eggs for the omelet.

Does anyone else remember that episode?

If this episode had just focused on Dash and Flutters, it could’ve been a whole lot better. But as it stands, it feels like pointless filler to me, even more so than “Castle Mane-ia”. Twilight is really the only exception, though I find it odd they waited this long to have her do something princess-y. Better late than never, but still…

Also, did anyone else think the beastmaster looked like Kratos? I wonder if that was intentional.

I think I just realized something out about Rainbow Dash in this episode. She only has about 3 defining characteristics that could be of any use in a story because no one wants to know about how she leaves a rainbow streak everywhere she goes Flying, Wonderbolt obsession and fan of Daring Do. No really, those are the only things to her. I’m pretty sure Daring Do was only added to keep her from being a repeating record. So much for being deep, complex characters huh?

The episode was…pointless actually. Nothing was really solved or even at risk. It was a preschool moral on all sides. But it’s not like anything matters besides potential reaction faces.

Since Easter’s coming up, I think it would be kind of cute if MLP did something vaguely religion oriented for this weeks episode. Of course, there’s a million reasons that can never happen.

What about “Leap of faith” ?

And I don’t know what the bigg fuss is about, can’t anyone be civil about it or what?
I’m religious, I’m not a saint, but I am, and even so I think the lessons in those episodes are valuable.

-The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence
(there are a lot of weird things that we can’t still explain and that doesn’t mean they dont happen)
-Faith is a great thing, but if it’s used to fuel up the wrong actions is caustic.

Pony? A label created by the Apples to give voice to their destruction. In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant. We simply… are.

Nah, I’m just being silly. But at any rate, there seems to be so many Bronies.

We don’t downvote all of them to hell. It’s usually the negative ones that are worded in a way meant to get us riled up or the ones that don’t even try to sound unbiased. There are people who come in and say their negative opinion of the show, but they’re at the least respectful/tolerant of it, and if anything, those are usually thumbed way up.

Well, all in all, it would seem the fandom is handling this finale a lot better than the last one.

Also, it would seem Shout Factory, the DVD makers, have unveiled what seems to be Twilight’s new castle. Linking to EqD, since they have all the info on it.

I think we can owe that to the fact that this finale actually sounds interesting, not to mention that Hasbro hasn’t spoiled the climax of said finale (unless the proverbial Spirit Bomb is that climax, but I doubt it). Most of all, it’s guaranteed progression for Twilight’s status, something they’ve neglected for 90% of the season.

Don’t you think it’d be a tad bit annoying to be unable to have anything involving Twilight because of her new status or having everyone treat her differently being the princess and all? Plus, with her new powers, logically she’d be a instant conflict management button. Not very exciting.

Personally, I much prefer this to her being put on a bus and shipped off the show all season.

They don’t treat her any differently now, so that wouldn’t be an issue. And personally, I find their handling of this concept thus far to be an example of “having your cake and eating it, too”. There’s nothing she’s done this season that she couldn’t have otherwise done as a unicorn, with the obvious exception of flying. Hell, she couldn’t even hail a cab in “Rarity Takes Manehattan”.

Basically, she’s a princess in name only, which I’d be fine with, if they hadn’t propped up her coronation as this huge, monumental event that changes her life, when it clearly hasn’t. Twilight even said so herself, in the S4 premiere, that her new status might entail some royal duties, and that their friendships would be tested because of it. But that hasn’t happened… at all.

My main issue is false advertising, not the immediate reality of the situation, is basically what I’m trying to say.

I think what helps people not want to purge the finale from existence is the fact that there’s no way that they’d make it so literally half of the season finale was a musical when in reality they should’ve been focusing on the story itself and not just trying to wrap up a Two Parter in one episode by using a few catchy songs.

Yay for another Rainbow Dash episode! It was great knowing that Rainbow Dash learns by flying and analyzing her surroundings at the same time. There were plenty of funny moments, such as Rainbow Dash hopping on a stool, Pinkie Pie rapping, and Fluttershy’s theater play.
