OK, season 3 finale..well, that finally happened, my thoughts
-Musical Episode OMG FINALLY A MUSICAL EPISODE!
- Loved the songs, all catchy & at times heart tugging
- Pinkamina Hairstyle for the win
- well paced despite epic level of stories
- Love Twilight burn-up troll XD
- We finally see the Cosmic Council
- Harry Potter reference
- DERPY IS BACK!!!
- Its quite obvious this was intended to be a series finale
- I kinda hate Celestia even more now *meh LUNA has always been best Alicorn anyway*
But yeah the thing that bugs me is Celestia basically admits while her & Twy are in the Cosmic Council that she has been guiding *or IMO Manipulating Twilight* into this "Destiny" from birth.
I get the overall moral of the episode is about the magic of friendship, but what I got was, Celestia basically likes to play God. Also the joking part of me says she just did this to Twy so she can take a vacation! XD
But yeah really looking forward to seeing how Season 4 plays out now. They have a lot on their plates, and since we now know the S4 premiere will be almost direct continuation of the events of this episode, I hope it plays out well, Again Twilicorn doesn't bother me as much as the implications it has on her character, I trust the writers, and if this leads to more world/cosmos/mythos building i'm eager to see it, but the pessimistic side of me says it may also make Twy even more of a Mary-Sue. But yeah just have to wait & see. And now we begin the LONGEST pony drought ever, thankfully we have the comics to tide us over this time around!
Also sad Discord wasn't at the corrination, but i'm guessing he probably split-town to see the world after his ep, ala Alladen Genie style! XD.
