It also represents the kind of thing Faust was against, and totally breaks the show, and makes Twilight a childish Mary Sue, and makes her seem like the only one who matters.

Awesome eel 36813582

>>36813510
Pretty hard to be convinced when conclusion are used as arguments.

Elaborate.

If anything, it was badly executed due to bad pacing. However, there is now technically more years after Faust than before. While she is creative and gave the breath of life of the show we all adore, the initial magic will run short soon enough and the show would need to expand. It did and the wing is a sign of that, good or bad, change helps to keeps things dynamic and not stiff, if it were, it would be killing the short temperament most audience have and ending the series.

I don't truly know whats going behind the scene nor the reason about this way of world building. We can all pretty much only speculate about the aftermath of this script path.

Overthinking Dept. (Dialect Division) Nother Nonymous 36804888[View]

AJ and all the Apple family (plus Hayseed Turniptruck) speak a stereotyped "Southern" (SE U.S.) dialect of American English. Almost everypony else in Ponyville speaks Standard Middle Western American English, which seems to be the local dialect. AJ was born in Ponyville. (We know that because Granny Smith came to Ponyville as a little girl, and she and her descendants have lived on the farm ever since.) The central territory for AJ's dialect seems to be the "Wild West" desert area of Equestria, since everyone in Appaloosa (plus Cherries Jubilee) speaks like AJ, as do most of the Apple family from out of town.

If Ponyville was founded by ponies speaking AJ's "country" drawl, why do so few of its residents speak that way? And why do AJ and Applebloom retain their ancestors' dialect, instead of talking like the other Ponyville ponies that they grew up with?

Apparently, their speech habits were fixed in the bosom of their family while they were still colts and fillies, before they went off to school and got exposed to the standard dialect. But where did that family come from? Who did Granny Smith find to marry? It had to be some immigrant; she couldn't have married one of her siblings. Likewise, her offspring (the father or mother -- which? -- of AJ, Big Mac, and Applebloom) would have had to marry someone who came to Ponyville from elsewhere. Where did AJ's other three grandparents, and one of her parents, come from? Did they speak "country"? (It's not simply the rural dialect; the Pie sisters, who grew up on a farm, speak Standard Poneglish.) Why didn't any other new settlers in Ponyville speak it?

The only theory that makes sense is that it's genetically determined. But we know from "Simple Ways" that AJ can speak Standard when she wants to. What gives here?

LIES.

this is in fact the complete OPPOSITE of what actually happens in the episode! it starts out freaking slow, with alot of random stuff that doesn't tie together well (seeing Luna turn into nightmare moon and fight celestia is honestly blatant fan service and unrelated to why the vines are attacking). This, plus twilight's bleh character, make the first part pretty slow.

But the second half? We get discord being his trickster self, PLUS a bunch of freaking cool scenes with the other five? Color me surprised, part two was FREAKING GOOD. Additionally, this had a HUGE hook in the part of the box, an ending where the mane six actually "Lost" for once (in that the EOH were now gone as far as their ability to use them was concerned), and they had an air of uncertainty of what was to come.
This episode was basically what made me decide to give S4 a chance after the shittiness of EQG and S3. (Seriously, EQG had killed all interest I had in the show to the point where I had stopped looking at MLP content completely and had no enthusiasm for anything to come.)





Also, part two gave me lots of cool AJ fighting vines fanart.
