This part of the episode was pretty good, but the rest was rushed and I just didn't like it at all.

if you consider all the crap the staff has to work whit.... restrictions, toy show casing, crazy demands from hasbro, extra exposition for certain things (frienshid train/crystal empire)...

i`d say the did a wondeful job in this finale and season overall :)

I was pretty satisfied with this episode. Something tells me season 4 will focus on growing up even more.

That season 3 finale episode of "My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic" was, although a bit rushed, so beautiful it made me shed enough "liquid pride" to fill a swimming pool. Never before has an episode made me feel all so tingly inside and brightened my day so much. There were so many wonderful things in that episode:
[01] beautiful songs
[02] pony tap-dancing
[03] nicer animation compared to previous episodes
[04] return of PInkamena Diane Pie's mane
[05] the scene where Twilight Sparkle looks at the photo of herself with her friends is the most adorable thing I've ever seen
[06] Rainbow Dash in a cauldron surrounded by little critters doing a tribal dance, hillarious
[07] a desolate Apple Acres looks like it belongs in a cool survival videogame
[08] most human-like sitting by a pony ever (not by Lyra)
[09] Twilight Sparkle's ascension to the Celestial Dimension
[10] the Celestial Hall of Memories (another version of the Akashic Records?)
[11] Princess Celestia can really sing
[12] Pinkie Pie : ALICORN PARTY~!!
[13] Pinkie Pie's 'drink-n-shower' move, hillarious
[14] yay for more Princesses Luna and Cadance
[15] Shining Armor's "liquid pride" term is about to trigger something within the fandom
[16] Lyra looks adorable

And to all those complaining about the finale and future of the show, try to remember Fluttershy's voice saying;

"... try to just give it a chance, you might find that you'll start to understand."

I enjoyed it. It pretty much telegraphed though something is gonna go boom at the start of the next season with the last words. Was a fun ride, and hey, 26 episodes next seasons. Groovy stuff.

Idk why, but this whole episode was touching and almost made me cry at parts. It seemed odd looking back at the episode after it finished, but I'll just wait it out to find out what happens next. I'm interested to see what the writers will do with the series since the main character had a huge alteration.

Not even death can conker her. got quite a bit of a "limbo" feeling out of this section, reflecting on the past, a second chance at life, undergoing a major change, and their god is present.

I think something big is about to go down. Like the biggest thing to happen yet! I mean, she got made a princess really fast, Celestia needed Discord's help (something she's NEVER done before), and the brief mention of King Sombre. Plus, thing's didn't start really going down in Equestia for a LONG time until Twilight, the amazingly powerful unicorn came on board, and all these old enemies pop up. Can't be a coincidence. Plus, ending the episode saying "Everything is totally fine!" just SCREAMS that NOT FOR LONG BITCHES!!

I'd never expected to hear Celestia sing. She has a pretty singing voice.

This scene was truly magical.

I think she died, and was reborn as an alicorn, but that's just me. XD So in my opinion she's in like, an 'afterlife' of sorts.

Ditto, The evolution and maturity the series gives to inspire how growing up is the ascension of our childhood and is just the beginning of magic growing even stronger-what series can boast such an incredible uplifting message to the world. I can't help but think it's Lauren Faust singing through Celestia.

how can you roll in your grave if you are still alive? Unless, you know, you pay them grave diggers to unearth your final resting plae that you have reserved just to roll in the hole....

Celestia singing... I thought I'd die of happiness.
But this part took second place IMO. I liked a lot more the scenes of the ponies helping each other remember.

Sure, the episode is not perfect, but it's good enough, IMO. At least now I've re-watched it some times and talked about it.

Taigan Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
See, this scene would have been excellent in a series finale. Making it the season finale just seems.... awkward. I'm sure they can still do stories, but how do they do them with Twilight a princess? Just ignore the fact that she is? And if the stories to come don't need her to be a Princess, then what was the point of this? This just feels like what the comic book types call "an editorial mandate." With the Crystal Ponies at the start and Princess Twilight at the end, Season three feels more like "Introducing new toy lines" than telling the story of the ponies.

That's how I would describe this whole episode. It would have been an okay series finale but as is it only made me mad.

:icontaigan:
Taigan Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
The only reason I didn't say that about the whole episode was because, as an episode, it sucked. Too many musical numbers, not enough storyline. The flashback of Twilight casting the spell was ridiculous. (Did she FORGET she had done that until then?) It was an problem only created so that there would be an artificial reason to have Twilight "promoted" to alicornhood. Overall, it could have worked with better pacing and dialog, but no. This episode would NOT have made a good series finale.

6XShadowX6 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
I agree all the way I like the musical numbers but when they get to the point where it blocks the story it annoys me and that flashback got to me too. As a whole the episode could have been good especially because I liked the cutie mark switching concept but it should have been at least a two parter and they needed more buildup to the twilight alicorn moment like what they did with the grand galloping gala.

Exactly! I'd be fine with a series finale, but how the heck is Twilight supposed to rule a nonexistent empire that probably only consists of Ponyville?

...Or is the new season going to be about the Cutie Mark Crusaders?
Reply
:icontaigan:
Taigan Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
I do hope that eventually the show lets the crusaders earn their cutie marks and doesn't keep with the "reset to standard." Just because I think there's at least two really good episodes to get out of that.
1) What happens when the first of them gets her cutie mark? Can she still be a CMC? (Actually, they could do this with Babs and leave the other CMC's as they are.)
2) What happens when all but one gets hers? Does the last CMC without a cutie mark feel like there's something wrong with her?

The thing is, when this episode was written and put into production... almost a year ago... nobody involved (Hasbro Studios, Hasbro corporate, DHX, Top Draw, the writers) knew whether this WAS the series closer. So they proceeded upon that assumption, because it would be worse to just orphan it than to do this midstream.

The same thing they do every season. Make great pony.

There's all kinds of directions they can take this in. The challenge is choosing which one has the most Awesome in it. These are some mighty good writers, and they're up to the task.
