Page 50! Woohoo! Another milestone.
Spike becomes aware of Sombra, alas, very late.
has asked me on Patreon "did the events from Spike's sin list really happen or not?"
So the answer to that question is "yes, but..."
"But" because they happened either not
the way Spike remembers them now (see Page 16
vs Page 33
), or words were spoken in the heat of the moment and are rather unfairly taken out of the context
(again Page 33
or Page 20
Moreover, Spike doesn't remember the follow-ups (like Twilight being remorseful and promising to do better on Page 34
), because Luna has temporarly locked away
their purified dreams to protect them.
What Sombra is showing to Spike could only work so well, because Spike was unable to definitely
dismiss it. He can't do that, because he always felt unsure about Twilight's love (because events from the past - Page 44
). And Twilight has provided - due to her immaturity, short fuse and overwhelming responsibility - lots of material for Sombra to use.
