Still spoilering, just to be safe.

Spoiler:
Amusingly enough, it wasn't out-of-character for Rainbow Dash only because we've seen her be out-of-character in exactly this way before. Think 28 Pranks Later (season six, episode fifteen). Normally she's self-centered but doesn't intentionally upset her friends for her own sake, but this was one of those times when it crosses the line into indulging herself at her friends' expense. It's happened before, but it's rare, and dissonant enough that it really doesn't feel like her.

If some of the alicorns' power is what flowed through the portal, then none of the alicorns seem to have noticed that it was missing, nor has there been any particular indication that they felt the loss. Even then, why would it show his logo and manifest as what seemed like a semi-intelligent, malevolent storm? It wasn't like that power ever belonged to him; he was just using the staff (which wasn't even his, since his initial scene in the movie is him barely knowing what it is).

As far as Star-Swirl goes, I don't think he can be blamed for this particular portal. Or did you mean something else?

To be clear, I didn't hate the special or anything. It had some fun bits; that "20% cooler" line about the fondue made me snicker, and that ending left all sorts of fun possibilities open (e.g. a ponified Flash Sentry within sight of Princess Twilight), but overall it just felt like it had more misses than hits.


Spoiler:
Remember when Storm King was wildly playing with the sun and moon? Up, down, up, down. An awful lot of power was being unleashed around the world in a matter of a few seconds. Including in any places where there might be portals.

The fondue also reminded me of a EG fan short where Sunset Shimmer asks about these little sugar puffs called 'marshmallows'. Very disturbing.

Yeah, but again, that's not his power; why was it displaying his symbol? And how is it that the alicorns (including Twilight) don't seem to be aware that some of their magic didn't make it back to them? There really isn't any way to characterize this in a manner that makes what we saw make sense within the context of the series itself.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

A brief synopsis of the end of the most recent episode:

Twilight: Hey, Spike!
Spike: Hey, Twilight.
T: Whatareyoudoing?!
S: What am I doing?
T: Thwartingmyplans?!
S: Thwarting your plans?
T: AREYOU?!
S: As a matter of fact, yes.

Also:

Celestia: Luna, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal.


And the writers have decided that effectively giving birth to a child, and raising that child, makes the child---
your little brother?


I know right, she basically raised Spike and after over 8 seasons now Spike and Twilight finally decide to think of each other as family. This is something that should have been touched upon a long time ago.

Eh, the show hasn't really ever been very certain how Twilight and Spike think of each other, but the dynamic has quite often seemed more like siblings than parent and child to me. Yeah, Twilight did seem more like Spike's mother in Father Knows Beast (season eight, episode twenty-four), but that strikes me as the exception rather than the rule.

For anyone who wasn't aware, the series finale was yesterday. I might post some reactions later on, but for right now all I can say is that it was absolutely beautiful. What a perfect way to end such an incredible show.
