Season 3 Finale!

Okay, I know there are a few MLP fans around here (, and , to name a few) - what did you guys think about the season finale? I really wish I hadn't seen the spoiler about what happens at the end (I won't mention it in case any of you haven't watched yet and don't know) and I think that definitely took something away from the experience for me. I would have been flipping out if I didn't know what was going to happen.

Also, Pinkie Pie continues to be the queen of spontaneous hilarity.

All in all it was a great season finale, can't wait to see what they do with season 4.

@Daniel_Newton:

It was decent, But again like a friend on twitter said. There was no tension. I hope what Megan said is true and that there's 2 more parts to this story.

Also May I note that this part:

Looked allot like one of my old fav AMV's

I think a lot of the focus was put on the singing, they fit a lot of it in and maybe didn't leave as much room for build-up and tension. Twilight basically went from "oh no, my friends lives are ruined!" to "I know what to do, lets go Spike!" with just a song in-between. I don't think I would have changed that though, I really like Twilight's song in this episode.

Yeah I heard that. I think they have to do that, because they didn't go into what it meant for Twilight to change. Does she have new responsibilities now? Apparently she's staying in Ponyville so that's good. I wonder whether she's immortal now or not, since I've seen a lot of people assuming she is. I doubt that's the case, I think that's probably a special trait for Celestia and Luna (and Discord, I guess) and not all alicorns. They probably won't address the issue though, if she is immortal that adds a really dark tone to the whole thing (Twilight eventually outliving all her friends) and it wouldn't be in the spirit of the show.

Ha, yeah it does. That was one of the parts of the episode that made it feel like the end of the show. This episode felt like the end in a lot of ways, makes me wonder why they chose to use it here instead of at the end of the show.

Not going to lie, I didn't find it all that great an episode. It was rushed and they overdid it with the songs. I like the songs, don't get my wrong, but there were far too many. You just don't shove that many songs into such a short amount of time. I think overall this would have been better as a two parter: stretch out the time between songs, add some stakes. As Kelleth said, there wasn't any tension which made it pretty dull. As for the end... eh, I don't care either way. I just hope they delve more into the responsibilities of her new position without throwing the other girls to the wayside.
