Just finished the finale a few hours ago. Not going to lie it was actually really good. The little episode after the finale was also surprisingly good, although I’m still not happy with the implications it has for the fandom, same could be said of most of season 9.

8/10.

I don’t know, I’m not to good with reviews unless I hate the episode. If you want to see some real autism this is probably my finest work, https://www.ponychan.net/pony/res/36830546.html#36830549

Going to post a reminder for the sake of people who hadn't watch the leaks, the finale doesn't officially air on TV until 8 PM EST.

Anyone who did watch the leak and can't wait until it airs on TV, we still have an anticipation thread.

Helpful hints for those who haven't seen the last three segments.

Every time you see Discord, drink.
Every time you see Twilight, drink.
Every time you see any of the three villains, especially Cosy Glow, drink twice as much.
Every time a commercial break comes on, drink.
Every time you see Big Mac, drink three times as much.

You'll need it.

I know /mlp/ has speculated that Twilight outlives her friends, but I'd like to think she chooses to lose her powers once they start getting much older. There's no way she'd willingly watch everything and everyone she loves die and crumble to dust.

Never watched Doctor Who, but does the 12th doctor give up his Time Lord powers to become a normal human that dies among his friends? Or doesn't he just pull his reincarnation thing to become a new person for the 13th time, which I believe still effectively gives him the same memories of his past lives?

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831185

>>36831184
Well the show has to go on, of course, so in the end he chooses to regenerate into Jodie Whittaker's 13th Doctor. If he was the final one however, that might be a different story. She retained his memories, but because of the nature of the show and the fact your new Doctor can't be suicidal and mentally broken from day 1, she was all peppy and shit.

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831186

anyways, I thought the epilogue was really sweet. I don't think it was said, but Twilight's student is 100% the daughter of Sunburst. And of course it went out with a nice song and the closing of the book I think we all probably expected. It was a simple episode, as epilogues should be. It was exactly how it should have ended, with them telling us how their friendship carried on. It was charming and sweet.

10/10

I did. It was pretty clear they had taken a few steps from the tone of their dialog. If I heard the dialog correctly, RD was now more involved in Sweet Apple Acres on a day to day basis. Nothing massively overt. Just a vibe.

Samonuh!3GqYIJ3ObsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831192

I will say the feeling that Twilight felt before the coronation is definitely how I felt before my wedding. Friends all helping you prepare for this big event, and you know afterwards you all will move on with your lives, and who knows how often you'll see each other then? It's a bittersweet feeling.

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831193

I thought it was a good choice to make the coronation a comedic disaster, and foregoed the ridiculous pomp of MMC

It was packed, so it flew by. Some things were great (fights, jokes), some things were stale cause we done seen them 100x.
All those shippings in the last episode.

As for Discord, I'm indecisive. Sure it's chaotic and retarded. S9E2 hints a bit, but I would have liked more hints, and would have loved to see his original ((plan)).
>>36831193
Agreed.

Unfortunate inconsistency: I loved Discord's unique out of control magic, but someone in the stream remarked that Tirek could handle Discord's magic fine when he took it himself.
So how do Tirek's powers work compared to Grogar's bell?
And also what was up with his father?

>And also what was up with {Tirek's} father?

From https://mlp.fandom.com/wiki/Family_and_relatives#Lord_Tirek

Lord Tirek and his brother Scorpan once planned to steal the magic from Equestria. Scorpan betrayed Tirek after learning of friendship and befriending Star Swirl the Bearded, and Tirek was imprisoned in Tartarus for his crimes. Tirek later refers to his brother as "weak minded" and "worthless". Tirek and Scorpan's centaur father King Vorak is the ruler of an unnamed land in My Little Pony: FIENDship is Magic Issue #2. He is suspicious of Tirek's lust for power, so he restricts the time he spends outside the castle. Queen Haydon is Tirek and Scorpan's gargoyle mother and the wife of King Vorak. In Frenemies, Tirek's grandmother "Gram-Gram" is mentioned.

Long story short: His dad didn't trust Tirek's lust for power and kept him on a short leash.

Possibly. Reminds me of the scene when Celestia tells Twilight she can stay in Ponyville from episode 2.

Small question that's been nagging me:

Why did Twilight have to take the train to her own coronation? And why couldn't she teleport to the station but she could teleport onto the train? And why weren't people on the train like "holy shit it's the new princess!"

1.) Cause she has no royal carriage and stuff as she lives without any servants or aids in Ponyville.

2.) Of course she could have but the train had already left the station by the time they realized they were late.

3.) Because they are either uninformed, didn't recognize her or they are used to such stuff happening. She rides the train a lot after all. Also, she's been princess for years (but now is top princess).

I'm mainly hung up on #1. Why didn't they send carriages for her? The coronation just didn't seem like a big deal.

Well, it was big in the way that lots of guests came to see it.

But I think Twilight simply didn't want a carriage. She didn't have any guards, never wore her crown... I think it was simply too pompous for her taste.

Doesn't she take a carriage to the Grand Galloping Gala?

If I was Twilight, I wouldn’t be in a rush to get out of Ponyville. I’d rather take a slow method of travel, so I can mourn and relax.

Wouldn't a carriage be slow?

>>36831278
Yeah but a train is more low key. The mane 6 took the carriage to the GGG because they were nobodies going to a formal event. It’s like a limo to them. As Princess I’d imagine she’d want to avoid the formality. She has enough of that shit in her life as it is. A train is relaxing and public transportation.

She did though IMO that was done cause at that point they hadn't started using all those Friendship Express trains yet (the only train appearing in season one was in the Appleloosa episode).

Well, I saw it. I'm finally done. That's a wrap.

Also I was Opinionated the whole time. Big shocker I know. Like the biggest twist in recent memory I'm sure.

That's a silly question. I haven't "liked" the show for more than half its life.

That'd be far too much to go over. but the top three reasons...

I cannot stand these fights of nothing but lasers and teleporting. So much magic and it's all just pew pew nonsense when it matters most.

I absolutely don't buy the twist reveal for a second. It may have been planned in advance but it absolutely doesn't line up at all with the motivations.

The conflict is addressed and resolved with the same tired old message we've heard what feels like a million times by now. Why even tell a story if nothing new comes of it?

A few days ago I was reminded of Faust’s alicorn Twilight sketch with a Celestia style body, so I’m actually far more ok with the body transformation now. It was entirely part of Faust’s vision, so it’s fine with me.

I’ve also become struck by the final scene and just how much literal growth and change the mane 6 have gone through. FiM was never a show to stagnate, so I appreciate being able to see how they’ve grown old and become their best selves.

I got a complaint.

I really enjoyed this season's episode Frienemies because it rose a ton of questions and possibilities that were surprisingly hard to predict (most of the show's developments can be seen miles away). How would the betrayal plans turn out? Would Grogar be too powerful to double cross? If they're successful, would he be dealt with immediately or would their betrayal wait until he's defeated? And all these questions got answered by the finale in one way or another.

But in addition, the mid-season episode rose even more important questions about the villains and friendship. Cozy was trying to make them real friends, and Chrysalis was trying to oppose it. They agreed to cooperate just to take over, though the seeds of friendship were there. Would friendship help lead to some sort of reformation? Would it make them stronger as villains, or hinder them? Would it be an obstacle for them to overcome? I was very eager to see how this would develop and affect the conflict.

But in the end it never came up again. The topic of friendship between the villains and what it might do to them is dropped entirely. The concept of villains using the power of friendship (effectively or not) was one of the most interesting questions since the series started, but after the question was asked, we never got an answer.

I've enjoyed the show thoroughly, particularly the various little growths here and there, but I also pretty much agree with this entirely.

Finally, something that would put a real wrench in the deal. Friendship powers against another group of friends? It was soooo close to being something that no one could have predicted. I honestly did not expect what Discord did, that was kinda neat, but what about the real Grogar?

While it might just be a silly headcanon, what if they brought Sombra back and he was like ' you know, this is the fourth time in a row I got my plot handed to me. They didn't even need crystals or whatever. They're right. Im done.' and perhaps even gone off and made a little 'maybe I am using my brain for once' as the rest jest - just as a cute cherry on top.

Bah, out of all the villains I wanted to see reform, it was these guys. Trixie was pure cheese, Discord was acceptable since he was first. Starlight was coo, actually - the kind of treatment I'd wished for. A philly in Tartarus and then as stone? Dooooesn't she have parents of her own? Yiiiikes. I now have so many questions. I can only assume/hope that the three will each get a Discord treatment, but better in the comics.

Incidentally, I've JUST finished binging the show up until current. I am made of feels.

sooooo the comics will finally be canon?
I'm confused why specify "season 10" instead of just continue the comics like normal.

>>36831176
Twilight becomes a unicorn again, just like the 2013 fanbase wanted! It only took her 50 years!

Probably for marketing purposes. It tells fans that the comics will actually continue the story after the show has ended, instead of giving the idea that the comics are just side stories, and giving it a new title means they can restart the numbering. That makes it easy for newcomers to know where to start instead of telling them to start reading at a specific issue number, plus #1 issues get more buzz and higher sales.

TRUE friendship is for GOOD guys only. They merely cockteased us a bit.

When the rainbow laser depowered the baddies and the bell seemed to crack, I actually thought for a second that the finale would feature Discord and the Sisters losing their magic forever. That would have actually been a kinda awesome conclusion in my opinion, giving weight to everything that happened and giving Twilight even more of a reason to step up as ruler.

It's sad to know that twilight will out live all her friends by thousands of years.

Don't worry about it, Discord can just bring back the dead.
