Proves that the writers aren't stuck, they don't need to pull out any clich?s, or any other such nonsense.

When did winning by the power of love stop being a cliche?

But of course, if that's the case, I doubt she'd have married Shining Armor only to watch him age and die.

Just because your immortal doesn't mean you're never going to fall in love. What crueler fate could there be then to be alone for all eternity? It is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all.

You know, the more I think about it. The more my opinion changes for this finale. I still think it's good & probably the best out of the two-parters we've had. But in the end it was mostly flash, with no real substance.

About 90 minutes to 2 hours of sword fighting immortals and dying loves.

It seems like alicorns are very rare but not as unique as we assumed


Yeah, they seem to be slipping more alicorns in beyond just the royalty. So I guess a good number of them exist, just not as plentifully as the other pony types.

Either that or this was a layout/animation error:

Further thoughts, upon watching it again:

I'm impressed how well-paced this episode was. That was one of the big problems with "The Return of Harmony": the resolution was pushed way back to the end and felt rushed. In this one, even though the villain didn't even reveal herself until the very last few seconds of the first half, and the second half had to squeeze in everything else including two songs, everything fell into place perfectly.

And as far as characterization, hoo boy, that last scene in part one. I could really feel the shame and disgrace that Twilight was feeling as her brother and her mentor angrily walked out of the room. Even knowing that she would turn out to be right very shortly. That was some heavy stuff that you don't really ever see on a kids' show.

If I had any doubts about McCarthy being qualified to take over as showrunner next season ? and I certainly did have doubts ? after seeing the job she did on this finale, I think she's proven that she's more than up to the task.

Or the higher-ranking non-unicorns on the Royal Guard wear fake horns as part of their helmets.

I'm able to go with 'rank' horn on their armor. a solid metal spike on the head of a horse ..kinda a useful think when they don't have hands.

and honestly Being that Celestia can fly... having Pegasi being her top guardsman makes sense.

and truth be told - I think equestria is beyond racism at this point, since Shining Armor was apparently even ranked above Big C's personal guard.

and like everything pony - it also stands to reason that they would be colour matched to the pony

now though I kinda need to bring up that there weren't any Mares in the royal guard ... hmm?

Well they're typically presented as the stereotypical stoic British soldiers you often see in fiction, and how often are those female?

What about the time travel episode, where the only problem was that Twilight freaked out about problems?

Also, I don't like using buck as a pony swear word. Makes the whole "applebucking" thing kind of disgusting.
