So because of the final episodes, I've revisited my initial impressions of Celestia from when I first started watching the show. I thought she was genuinely nice but was setting up "crap" for "Twilight and friends" to deal with. I didn't put much thought beyond that at that point in time, since I had now idea how the show would go over time.
now "cue" Discord. Always trying to F things up for his own amusement. A character like him in a show like this is just great. He's definitely one of my favorite characters.
Now for where I'm going with all of this. OH HOW I WISH they could have gone another layer with him and Celestia being each other's nemesis'! But you know- for kids.
When it was revealed that Discord was Grogar- I literally gasped- I wasn't expecting that. I was like "Shit- is he actually bad?" Ultimately though I think it was great. I don't think he was really concerned about Twilight, her confidence, and her "Oh so important" coronation, but was more concerned with sticking it to Celestia by screwing with her grand plan.
Retirement!?! NOT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I mean look at the situation- Sister's back, main villains nullified (for the time being), Equestria in an overall good state, ready to hand over the keys and... BAM!, Chef "look at me, I'm a good boy now" was cooking up trouble, and it boiled over, just a bit. Maybe the whole time Discord was actually malevolent and was trying to "break" Celestia but legit messed up.
Now in a NON TV-Y WORLD- Celestia could have snapped after Discord revealed that his plan got away from him- along with his magic. I mean she could have turned into an enraged Daybreaker and immediately blasted a dumbfounded Luna back to the moon and maybe even possibly kill Discord in the state he was in at the time. On top of a now crazed insane Celestia, add the bumbling bell brigade to the mix and now what? Imagine how F'd up the possibilities could be!
I really don't know how something like that would have turned out. I mean we saw how down Twilight got in the actual episode, now add if Celestia went insane/evil because of Discord going too far!
