However, the Cutie Marks reveal was SWEET, and definitely had proper buildup! I'd jokingly theorized that they'd end up being actual Cutie Mark Knights after helping Clutterstep, yet here we are!
Calling it now, those three are gonna be instrumental to this season finale.
Also, Apple Parents confirmed again as dead.
*awkward crying laugh*
So I'm supposed to be touched by the fact that Twilight, after her mentor took the time to create that wonderful memorial of her friends and colleagues, basically threw a magical fit and used some form of necromancy to reanimate her friends or created some sort of group of clones using the stone statues as a base? I can't say I'm much of a fan of this. Ignoring the fact that in the show's canon, this won't even be a thing (Twilight outliving her friends), I do not like the thought of Twilight being so incapable of moving on, or even so incapable of making new friends after being the freaking Princess of Friendship, that she would rather dapple in that sort of magic and bring back her friends from the freaking dead rather than taking the higher road of moving on.
And before someone calls me a heartless bastard, I'll ask a quick question. If you knew that someone on this Earth had the power to bring back her friends not only from the dead but also back in the very prime of their lives, do you not think that virtually every human being who wasn't a Christian 'cause we're so uptight would flock to her as if she were the Great Messiah? I'd think it almost a moral obligation to share that power with the world - why should she be the only one to have immortal friends?
Yeah, I've got nothin' to deflect my thoughts. I'll be wrapping up in a jacket in the naughty corner.
Not only do we get some really great dream sequences (and the double-feature of awesome that is the return of Knight Spike and Prince(ss) Big Mac, but we also get some heartbreaking character development for Princess Luna! I mean...my GOD, she created a terrible dream apparition to haunt her every single night just to keep her in check and punish herself! It's like BDSM, except sans-pleasure and it has a point! A terribly tragic point!
This episode...just...goddamn! An easy 9/10 for me!
It'd be humorous to see Tumblr explode at how someone would DARE to make a fictional character of their orientation look so bad. xD
*Puts on "I don't give a fuck" shades*
Also, I have a bone to pick with that cover page. Firstly, i'd think the nature of EqP!Twilight's (EqP= Equestria Proper) hand would be a bit more relaxed, with the slightest curve in the fingers. If I understand romantic bodily gestures correctly, one in the midst of a romantic/sensual action will usually be more relaxed than...not...relaxed...so the hands have a softer touch than this. Secondly, the hand's placement. Now I don't think she should be groping Sunset's breast or anything, but I'd think the hand would be more to the lower-half of the collarbone rather than threatening to wrap around Sunset's neck...
Or is that subtle illustration to the nature of Sunset/EqP!Twilight's relationship?
