Honestly one of the more, if not most respectful episode in recent years, never mind this season. It’s nice to see an episode like this, especially after the disaster that was the last Celestia and Luna focused episode. 9/10.

It’s Vogel, so it’s almost guaranteed gold. 8/10

Honestly not a bad episode, the villains really do keep things fresh and interesting.

Definitely not a fan of sudden, arbitrary, tryhard character growth so painfully rubbed into my face though. Hey everyone check it out, Twilight's progressed to... how she was in the season 2 premiere?

Decent. They really should start listening to Applejack.

What do people think of the music during the montage near the end? I'm having a hard time describing how I feel toward it...

It stood out from any other music so far. It had something foreboding about it. Like you were on the last stretch to the final boss.

Oh shit I watched 17 before 16.

Anyway, jolly good show.
>>36830739
True, really love what they're doing with the 3 baddies.
>>36830751
Struck me too. I liked it.

I really liked it!

I will say, I'm not too mad about what people are calling "sudden character development." People can slowly improve and work through their flaws while still occasionally falling victim to those flaws. I've noticed Twilight went into freak-out mode less and less throughout these seasons up to S9. However, suddenly being told she'd be the leader of Equestria has put her under unimaginable stress, so I think it's normal that she's freaking out more again throughout this season. This episode though seems to show that she's finally accepted her role as leader and is feeling prepared to take it on.

Good episode. I liked that they tried to have all of the group help out a bit to get to the end goal, and the 3 had better chemistry than I was expecting.
A bit too easy for them just get the ponies to go all "RACE WAR NOW!" IMO, but past that solid.
I will say though, I would have liked the mane six to have been a bit more competent in fixing the problem, but that's a minor quibble.


8.5/10.

Heh, did you see the part where the weather team were using small buckets to solve the weather?

At the last moment, just before the door slams shut on Generation Four, Twilight has at last matured into the definitive Mary Sue we have all been fearing and expecting for the past six years.

>>36830776
Yeah.
Like, its a good moral of AJ wanting to tell the truth, but I feel it kind of undermines the idea of Celestia being at east leaving everything in the mane six's hands if they're unable to fix things up here.
I would have rather had Twilight find out about issues and have burst in on the other 5, with it turning out that, YES, they WERE able to fix things up even without twilight's help since it was their expertise.


Also, fucking hell they kind of have only themselves to blame for the weather issue when they put someone so utterly idiotic in charge of it to the point all it took was a little filly basically telling him to fuck things up as "advice" to screw things up.

That's like having Zephyr as a royal guard, except without the "Just as planned" bit.

The first few times Twilight tried to raise the Sun and Moon
SHE COULD BARELY CONTROL IT
> like when she fought Tirek with all 3 Alicorn magics.
She also struggled when she had the amulet the 1st time
but seeing her in this episode raise it perfectly with Celestia and Luna was a great way to show her progression towards being ready to take the mantle.
