Closure OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829959

With the show coming to an end after just one more season, it's pretty much inevitable that many unanswered questions brought up by the series will remain by the finale. What are some such issues you most wish will be addressed by the final season? The fate of Chrysalis? Some resolution to Spike and Rarity? Celestia and Luna's origins?

Personally, I hope they have an episode that explains why Dash and Fluttershy moved to Ponyville. The few details we have seem like they could tell a great story, but it would be a shame if none of it went addressed.

Oh, so many questions...

Why do Celestia and Luna live for centuries in perpetual youth and vigor while all other ponies grow old and die? What are Discord's origins? Why are some dogs, cats, and deer speechless chattels while others are sapient citizens? What is the backstory of the Diamond Dogs? Is Rarity a virgin? Why does Equestria have occasional signs of electricity but no internal combustion engines (with the possible exception of the engines on airships)? Where are the other zebras? What ponies couple with donkeys to beget or bear mules, and are they shunned or arrested for doing so? How do ponies play organs, pianos, guitars, and other instruments with only one finger on each hand? Why does everypony write with quills on parchment when there are typewriters? Why do almost all ponies go around with their tails perpetually raised? Why do Luna and Celestia, and no other ponies, have living hair? Why do names given to ponies at birth usually match the cutie marks they acquire at puberty? Why does Tirek have more legs than his brother? Why is the horseshoe such a pervasive symbol when all ponies (except for Troubleshoes) go unshod? Who is the Pony of Shadows seen in "Castle Mane-ia"?

I could go on.

Oh yeah, trains in the later episodes seem to be powered by internal engines. Flim and Flam also have a self-propelled vehicle. But somehow they are never honored for having invented the horseless carriage. Maybe that doesn't seem like a good idea to a horse.

Looking at that picture I always wonder what Sunset Shimmer's parents are up to... Why's she never trying to visit them?

Same goes for Cozy Glow - do her parents know their daughter is in Tartarus?

I doubt Rarity and Spike will ever be a thing, but I wouldn't mind seeing a potential mate for her in the final season. Nothing too much, just someone catching her eye perhaps. Of all the ponies, she's the only one to still have an unfulfilled desire. Twilight has gone from student to teacher, Dashie is a Wonderbolt, Fluttershy has her sanctuary and the other two have never expressed much desire to go outside the life they already live. Rarity may now be a renowned designer with multiple boutique, but she never found the beau she was looking for. That wish goes all the way back to Season 1 and her dream of finding her prince, so lets see it happen. I'd hate to have the finale leave her on the path of a spinster with impossibly high standards.

Speaking of which, though I highly doubt it will ever be addressed, doesn't there have to be a human world Sunset around somewhere?

I like to think she escaped to Equestria

There have been lots of strong hints that Rarity returns Spike's affection.

It's constant, actually. And coincides with her dropping the chase-princes bullshit; i very much think she's waiting for Spike to hit maturity and if they click at that point, i think it can happen.

> Where are the other zebras?
In journal of the two sisters it says they went back to there homeland, but zecora stayed.

I would like a zecora episode, its a very underused character.

>Why does Tirek have more legs than his brother?

where did Scorpan go is a better question, in previous gens, Scorpan was turned into a beast, but was once human. Would an episode addressing this give us more insight into EQG, perhaps Celestia mad the division to protect both worlds.

Spike-Rarity ending up together would be more shocking than last episode lesbian fanservice.

Who do you think named Spike? Do you think they did so with the intention of it being a culturally "dragon" name? Imagine if he'd gone to the dragon lands and they'd commented on his name being really strange for a dragon.

I guess either Celestia, Twilight or Twilight's family. With the ponies having little knowledge about dragons I guess they just named him after his prominent spikes.

I have a wish list, but none of it is really things I seek closure for as much as things I just want to see FiM do before it ends (e.g. a bodyswap episode)

There's one exception to this (besides wanting a resolution to Sparity and I don't even think that's crucial):

What's the deal with Blueblood? I want to see him again.

Huh, you know what I just realized? Starlight started off her arc with an impassioned hatred of cutie marks. And while she was shown the error of her ways with friendship and junk, her hatred of cutie marks was never actually addressed... ever. Like it's pretty clear she doesn't still carry that hangup, but they kinda missed an opportunity for closure there, with her coming to a real healthy understanding of the role of cutie marks in ponies' lives. Kinda bizarre how that simply never happened.

Yeah, that and the whole 'reconciling with her village' thing happened during a three second scene in a song montage and the next time we see them, not only are they cool with her but will happily put her in charge again. That should have been an episode in of itself.

It's extremely obvious the intial plan for starlight was axed sometime between the opening and the finale, her magical expertise shoots through the roof because the plot demanded a redemption spiel, her antagonistic motivation was very poorly thought out and that song montage fast-tracked her into being friends with the mane6.
It's to the point that her first appearance in the opener and her first appearance as a protagonist in the following season are practically two different characters.
Given their habit of recycling scripts, i personally think Sunset shimmer was going to come back to equestria and be Twilight's student, but they decided to use Glimmer for that instead.
>Sunburst as a brother instead of 'friend'
>Former student of celestia, magical ability is on par with Twilight for a credible reason.
>Biggest screw up was being a bitch and getting possessed by a magical artifact, so being forgiven and trusted so easily makes sense, not to mention more in common with Trixie in that regard.
I hope once G4 ends we get a dump of potential scripts or ideas, it'd be nice to know 'what-ifs'
