!!!!!! If you don't want spoilers don't read!!!!!!!
Anyways....Yes I was happy that season 4 was here! And my god! What an awesome episode!
I enjoyed seeing that Celestia has given Twilight more responsible roles with now being a princess and all. And while most people at the end of season 3 was a little bit concerned about her transformation into an alicorn, it is easy to see that she is still the same Twilight we know and love. So, Everyone... I think Hasbro kept their word that the only thing which changed about Twilight was her wings and probably her height. Other than that, she is still the same lovable Twilight.
Now a personal concern of mine back in Season 3 was the issue with Discord. Discord isn't my favorite villain (ALL HAIL
/)/^3^(\ ) But he is still up there and I still love him as a character. When Discord "Converted" in a....less than average episode...I was little distraught and I kinda thought that was the end. No more Discord. No more chaos. No more cotton candy, chocolate rain, exploding milk etc etc etc.
Season 4's come back of Discord was hysterical! It showed me that though even if he was "reformed", the spirit of chaos is still there! So yeah, Discord may not be the "bad guy" but he's also most definitely not the "good guy either which is
So that's 2 points of kudos towards a great show.
On top of that, the Equestrian Lore! Not only did we witness the true banishment of Luna...BUT THE FIRST DEFEAT OF DISCORD!
Which I was not expecting!!
THE FUN WAS DOUBLED!!!!!
Now I know why he was in that pose when he first broke out of his stone prison!
I do enjoy how that even though Hasbro introduced a bit of (vague) Clarity on how the defeat of these two villains happened, it was still vague enough to draw your own story. What REALLY caused Luna to transform into Nightmare Moon? What was the straw that broke the camel's back? from her expression in the midst of transforming you could see that she was surprised and distraught at what was happening. it was if she didn't want to take it THIS far.
And that little bit of Discord whispering tales of woe into Twilight's ear after her friends told her to
of the Everfree forest almost makes me believe that the real reason why she turned into Nightmare Moon in the first place was Discord's doing....it's an interesting thought....
Moving on, there were some flaws to be seen within the episodes, but it's all personal preferences. I mean....Man it must suck to give up the elements of harmony!It was the thing that made you guys all friends! It's the thing that helped you defeat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that has come your way! (except for Chrysalis because she is badass!)
Though that was quickly drowned out by noise of the the episode screaming "SEASON LONG PLOT QUEST LINE!!!!" Awwww yisssssss
....can anyone say Keyblades of Harmony?
Nah I kid....but seriously, that would be awesome...
The episode was very good over all, though it didn't have the OMG suspense and villain that the its predecessor had, it still kept me on my toes, especially with the semi cliff hanger ending. God i wanna know whats in that box thingy. All in all, it taught me a lesson. I am not going to judge hasbro prematurely. Though I didn't have an issue with Alicorn Twilight, Goody-two-shoes Discord was the thorn in my fear. Thankfully they proved me wrong and that I shouldn't judge.
The Season premiere is a must see and I can't wait for the next episode especially
