  1. Yeah, which means "goal" may have been a better term than Arc. As one is a goal she achieves and one is her growing as a person. Newbie Dash squandered the potential of RD achieving the goal she has had since episode 1. Screw that episode.
  2. I mean her main goal was becoming a Wonderbolt, she did in that episode. The new chapter would be advancing through the ranks but that is more post arc. No one's story ends until they die but it was the conclusion to that one specifically, her becoming captain to me would be a different arc as it is far different.
  3. Newbie Dash, it was a conclusion to Rainbows main character arc and yet it ended up being just a mediocre SoL episode.

    Anything You DON'T Want to See in Season 9?

    -No more mane 6 season 1 level arguments or falling outs...those are obnoxious and don't fit -Student 6 taking over the mane 6 -More focus on the school -Major shipping episodes with mane characters -More random locations in mainland Equestria, quit invalidating the existing map

    Starswirl's Spell

    An interesting theory, let me take it in a direction that is much more supported by the show now that I think about it. Starswirl used the spell to transfer the Pillars magic into the Seed of Harmony as there isn't another way for a Earth pony to transfer magic. Now Starswirl never finished the spell, but it is possible the one used on the Seed was somewhat of a prototype of that same spell.

    Will the issue of Starswirl be addressed before FiM ends?

    Here is the issue with that. Starswirl (and Clover because of that) thought that the human world was completely devoid of magic. We know that isn't true but can't really blame him for putting the needs of his world above the worlds of others. Call me a monster but if there was a terror spreading destruction and terror across my world and I found a way to banish them to a world where they would be objectively much weaker and incapable of spreading the same terror. I would do that.

    Josh Haber writing the script for School Raze Part 2

    2 writers, both of which are practically in charge of the entire show and neither of them noticed the massive continuity error of "three days and no magic" when Celestia would have lost her magic before she could even bring about a third day.

    Spoiler S08:E25+26 - School Raze

    I think Tartarus was very underwhelming but I still like most of the other bits of worldbuilding and lore we have gotten this season, not as much as previous ones though. I don't even thing the Tartarus thing wouldn't have bugged me so much if they just didn't reuse the same 4 creatures 12 times

    Spoiler S08:E25+26 - School Raze

    As a fanboy Tartarus really fuckin sucked. I still like the shot of it from season fourr with the spire prisons (Still one present as Tirek is there) but god the surrounding area was very lame, even in the M6 running shot it was just a tond of reused animals and hardly any new designs. Could have been much more. I guess we know how easy it was for him to escape now the first time, he's like..right next to the door. That said despite only seeing some snippets and reading a lot of opinions, this finale still sounds really good.

    Spoiler S08:E22 - What Lies Beneath

    WHAAA WHAAAAT WHAAAAT THE FUFJAIOFHQAWPOF I'm dead, best episode of the season, oh my god oh my god oh my god OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I love this episode but I absolutely hate that idea, I like to think the tree acts through all things and not just the wielder of the elements. So the young 6 do represent some of the trees power, but the mane 6 still represent the elements. idk who cares, I love this episode SO DAMN MUCH

    Issues with the School of Friendship Arc

    The school has not butchered any of the main cast aside from two episodes that damaged RD AJ and Rarity. The school is an okay plot device that I am glad has been mostly sidelined. The students are fun and the arc this season has been enjoyable enough. I do wish we could have had a followup arc on the pillars instead, but whatever.
