If Starlight prevented Rainbow Dash from performing her Sonic Rainboom in the past that got all the Mane Six their cutie marks, then why was Twilight still an alicorn and why did Rarity still have her cutie mark in the altered future?
HOLLY FUCKING GOD I THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T DO BETTER THAN EPISODE 100 AND THEY DID!
The lesson wasn't what I expected it to be. I thought it was going to be a case of "sometimes you will miss out on your opportunity to shine but that's ok there will be other opportunities to shine."But that's ok because it touched a subject that children will go through anyways. It hurts more than ANYTHING to loose a friend. And its hard to make new friends but not to give up. Because even when bonds are broken new ones can be reformed.
My only complaint was just I was kind of hoping starlight shimmer wouldn't get reformed. She would have been a spectacular constant antagonist for twilight. But meh I wont worry too much about that. Another complaint is just her background story seems a bit like a letdown. Honestly it doesn't seem like something big enough to drive a pony to steal cutie marks, and change the past to ruin it for another pony.
Its not big enough to ruin the episode. Believe me Zacora more than makes up for it. But still I kind of imagined her to be sort of the one who was bullied all the time because she lacked a cutie mark.
Gosh I don't even know where to start. Let's just start from the beginning, first of all we saw Starlight preventing Rainbow Dash from creating a sonic rainboom and changing the future of Equestria. We had the opportunity to see all the villains returning from the earlier episodes, and also to experience what happens if they took the rule all over Equestria. There was a lots of references to earlier episodes and fan fictions which was amazing. We had references from The Fall of Equestria, How applejack won the war. This episode also confirms the fact that Rainbow Dash is definitely the source of Everything actually, because If Rainbow Dash hadn't make a sonic rainboom and earned her cutie mark then the rest of the Mane 6 couldn't have earned theirs too. And if they haven't get their cutie marks then they wouldn't even get to know of each other and everyone will just carry on with their life under the rules of the villains. The only thing that got me wondered is will Starlight join the Mane 6 and become a part of it or she will be a side character just like Discord? On the other hand this episode was a perfect season finale. I think it was slightly better than the S4 finale but still both of them is very enjoyable and amazing.
Episode score: 9.9/10 (just because that fighting scene in S4 finale is definitely the most awesome part in the series)
I kinda figured we were due for a redemption, since the last major villain got soundly beat.
But clearly in pony world the best way to ensure your foal will have insane magical gifts is to name them "something to do with evening" "something to do with a small amount of light"... "Twilight Sparkle", "Sunset Shimmer", and now "Starlight Glimmer". Wait for it, the next major magic pony will be named "Evening Glow".
They'll have a sad and lonely fillyhood, then BAM. Make like 5-7 friends at once, and turn into either an immortal being, a friend to one of the highest ranked ponies in government, or a fire-winged ANGEL.
was dumb..starlight's motivation for turning evil was because a friend moved? yeah cause apparently letters arent a thing in equestria anymore. also where the hell did she get magic on that scale from?
