That's a dubious way of calling her a friend. Sounds more like she's an extended friend of the group, but not of Twilight specifically.

No she was a friend, they knew each other back in school.

Certainly shows it, after the effort she put forth for the others, even though Lyra lives in Ponyville... <_<;

They used the musical gimmick for when Twilight became an alicorn, it barely worked there so I don't know why the bloody hell they did it for the CMC getting their marks. The episode could have been better done without the songs.


All a matter of opinion. >^_^<

Though now I'm curious in light of what you just said, Lio. Aside from Amending Fences, what other 5th-season eps have you actually liked?

The first one, Trouble Shoe's and Amending fences. There were some others that were okay so I can't say I disliked them, but I didn't really like them either.

Not happy with how abrupt the ending is. It's the same thing they did for the first EG movie.

So in other words, I'll find it worth watching. Gotcha. >^_^<

What can I say? The stuff that people don't like tend to be things I end up watching anyway. :mrgreen:

I was an okay episode, just the ending felt kind of wrong.

It sucked.

SPOILER - Show Spoiler
Overly convenient means of antagonist finding out about how the "mane six" got their cutie marks together.

Rather convenient how the antagonist just happened to have a time travel spell, one greatly improved upon despite the original having been created by someone like Starswirl the Bearded, so she'd have it and a plan ready when Twilight returned from Canterlot.

Too convenient how the antagonist was so powerful that the conflict could only be resolved if they gave up, rather than being overcome by force.

Really convenient deus ex machina that keeps Twilight Sparkle unchanged by the changes in the past, as well as from affecting the antagonist's past, which would have likely prevented the events leading up to the time travel stuff (thus creating a paradox).

And let's not even get into the time travel stuff in general. Using it at all is usually bad enough, and it can only get worse from there. I don't even think that the mechanics involved match a prior episode involving time travel -- I'll have to check and see.

And, like I said, the whole affair was resolved due to there being sympathy for the devil. It's too cliche; I saw it coming from a whole other universe. And it's only compounded by jumping sharks with freakin' laser beams attached to their heads.

You know you're a member of Every Pony, you can post that there. Some ego's can stand to be taken down a notch.

I do want to know how she even got access to the map in the first place. Twilight's castle has no guards? Princess of Friendship or not she's still a Princess her home should be protected. Something as powerful as the Map should be protected too.
