This is the upload I'm currently waiting for to finish processing...

It's a straight cut and paste job, complete with adverts (apparently), but I would actually almost advise that everyone watch it, because apparently something happened during the advert break, without the knowledge of which, no pony-related meme for the next week or so will make any sense...

/edit - am I allowed to link to that BTW? hmpf

I'm not sure.  The one I just finished watching was a pretty low quality one, which is a shame because the artwork is easily among this episode's strengths.

Okay I'm probably going to be a minority here.  I enjoy this episode but... here is my spoiler-tastic opinion on it.

The one I watched was pretty good quality other than I had to turn my speakers up all the way.

That being said I'm glad the show it back. I'm not really in a critical mood right now so I'll come back for discussion later.

Agreed that was easily one of the best moments for the episode, if not the best.

In a nutshell my opinion is...

At least this should get those Luna is exclusively nocturnal people to shut up.

I wonder if this marks the beginning of an ongoing attempt to give Applejack (& Spike) more moments of competence/significance in the show.

I got a laugh from the fact that Rarity somehow convinced that pony to wear the last "hat" she made.

The horror!


The Crystal Empire was good.

Too bad King Sombra was defeated so easily.

Some good fan fictions could come from this.

Like even if his body is destroyed it could fully regenerate back or his evil spirit possess a new host.

Also:

It could be an interesting scenario if letís say in a parallel universe that King Sombra won thus consuming the entire world with fear and hatred.

Would could that mean?

No cannon: (Could be good for a fan fiction) Perhaps a world filled with bitterness, slavery (concentration camps), and war (rivers run red with Pony blood and stuff), with only the odd few not completely consumed by fear and hatred.

A world under King Sombra rule only hope may be MLP Ponies from yet another parallel universe to liberate from tyranny under King Sombra.

King Sombra minions corrupted Ponies turned evil (much like Orcs) with red eyes or something that eat meat and other non corrupted rebellious Ponies that stand against King Sombra.

And to make even King Sombra even more evil letís say he likes to eat children.

She made it work.


As for King Sombra assuming a new host,  I now have images of Twily looking on in tears as her brother becomes King Sombra.   Or better yet, Princess Cadence's head spinning round, vomiting green goop and screaming that everyone's mothers suck carrots in hell.

Loving the fan speculation about Sombra's fate in general, plus Luna's perceived role in this season, and Twilight's destiny and what not; what was that book at the end? Glee! big grin

Thing is that if Sombra doesn't appear again, then unfortunately it reflects badly on the episode, because he just wasn't developed enough. I know it's a kid show but even by its own standards, the character was quite thin when the buildup was so huge and he had so much potential.

Ah well, still really enjoyed the episode. Twilight's quest and the resolution was suitably epic, I felt; lots of lovely little visual gags too. Really looking forward to the rest of the season smile

Sombra was an effective villain, simply due to the fact that we knew absolutely nothing about him except that the crystal ponies were absolutely terrified of him. This lack of any personality, motive, and backstory also makes perfect sense, since he only exists as shadow.

What I also find impressive about these two episodes are the obvious indicators of an ongoing story arc. In my head, I'm imagining that it also has something to do with all these thousand-year-old enemies returning practically simultaneously.

When [spoiler]a certain personage[/spoiler] was falling at the end of the episode where was Rainbow Dash?

Also, given what King Sombra was able to set up in the way of magical traps and/or defenses (not to mention that they're still functional 1000 years later) it puts into context just how far Twilight Sparkle still has to go before she can be ranked amongst the truely great practioners of magic.

Nevermind RD, I was wondering why Rarity didn't grab Spike with her magic! Would have been a nice little shipping thing and not the Rarijack shipping fuel that was thrown at us in the form of a pun... although I must admit I lol'd before I facepalmed.

And yes, good episode. I won't give a ridiculous review - but I can say I enjoyed it. Was slightly disappointed there wasn't a seven part harmony Pinkie Pie song, with the Pinkies singing all the parts x]

It's weird because Pinkie my second least favorite of the ponies, so this episode started out cringe-worthy but for some reason there was a good balance of Pinkie realizing the consequences of her actions and me not being the only one being like "damn Pinkie Pie (x100) is annoying". Although I find it funny how blah-ze (sp?) everyone was about the sudden appearance of all the Pinkies especially considering the weak explanation for how they came about. Like I kind of appreciated how there's this false beginning with Twilight trying to perform a spell and Pinkie keeps getting in the way, but how she actually multiplies herself doesn't make that much sense.

Cartoon logic.

Since when has Pinkie ever made sense? And magic is very common in Equestria - why can't an earth pony know about this lake?

Also, I would be more concerned about how she bends physics to her will. But then again... cartoon logic.

Twilight is very knowledgeable about innate unicorn magic, but surprisingly ignorant about earth pony magical folklore. This is the third time Pinkie has possessed information Twilight hasn't.

Depends on your headcanon.

On the one hand, people are saying that the mirror pinkies were just copies and not real ponies (the angle that the show tried to present), but on the other, they were quite clearly sentient beings with their own thoughts and feelings who ceased to exist after Twilight went all trigger happy on their asses.

A "soft, safe, absolutely kid friendly" ending would have been the pinkies all agreeing to jump back into the pool. Having Twilight explode them with her magic laserbeam of exploding death certainly made the episode more disturbing however you look at it.

"Stare at the wall or die!" is a great concept, it should be in a horror film or something. I'll settle for having it in an episode of MLP though. big grin

It was certainly the episode with the most grimdark potential out of the entire series so far, and that's even without thinking about what happened to all those animals Twilight turned into oranges, or the possibility of the real Pinkie being trapped in the pool.

The way I see it, the copies were merely shallow automatons animated by magic. The test worked because they were so shallow, as was evidenced by them showing no concern for Pinkie's friends -- not even being able to remember their names. Staring at a wall wasn't difficult for the real Pinkie at all, because she was an actual sentient being, not just a construct.

^ I see it the same way as Xanfor, although the whole way in which Twilight returned them to the lake was a bit dramatic with the magic making them swell. They should maybe have had a Star Trek beam effect.

3? What other than the Parasprites did Pinky know about?

Possibly Pinkie-sense, I think?

Way I see that though:
Twilight = Unicorn magic
Pinkie = Gypsy magic

The CMC episodes always seem like they should be boring, but they never end up that way. The best parts of this episode were Scootaloo semi-flying, Sweetie Belle semi-using magic, the song, and the epic A-Team references.

Babs was just weird and had about 2 lines throughout the entire episode as well as a creepy accent and that hair blowing tick.

There was something of an interesting theme going on with the bullies being bullied idea, but they could have taken it even further and expanded it into a message about positive self-esteem, by having the CMC understand that if you're being bullied, it doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with you, and that your bully is likely to be doing it because they're the one that is miserable and bitter.

Instead we got a "tell your parents" moral, which is reasonably good practical advice, but doesn't actually help victims cope with the long-term effects of feeling worthless etc. as a result of bullying.
In many ways typical female bullying and name-calling/ social exclusion is worse than typical male bullying since it's designed to be psychologically damaging, and that tends to stick with and hurt people for a lot longer.. so as a girl's show I was hoping there would be some sort of upbeat self-esteem based conclusion (possibly in the form of a Celestia letter, which would have been *perfect* for this ep) rather than Babs scaring DT / SS into the pigsty, which was still a vindictive and pretty generic ending.

I had the feeling while watching that it was one of the few sub-par writers who got given this episode, and after going back to check, sure enough, it was written by Cindy Morrow (haven't liked any of the eps she's written other than Hurricane Fluttershy). There's nothing particularly wrong with her writing, but the tone is generally off and often feels like it could be a G1 episode.

Good for that pig. Good for that pig.

Oh and I liked the song.

You know I really would have liked it if they had gone to at least try to talk to AppleJack about this instead of trying to handle it on their own. It seems like that's always how a bullying scenario plays out. It would have been interesting if they had gone to her and somehow it happened that AppleJack started getting bullied or something. Just to show the CMC that it's not just a kid problem.

And again the accent really bothered me. It was like with last year's Halloween episode and they had Pipsqueak, who from what I could tell was voiced by an actual child (because his line reading was kind of awful). I think she was supposed to have some sort of Brooklyn accent but it sounded like she was doing that with foam in her mouth.

Maybe i'm just splitting hairs but I don't see seeking retribution as being 'bullying' per se. It might be just as bad as bullying what with perpetuating the cycle of violence and all that but technically its not the same thing.
