  1. Do you think we will ever see Cozy's family? And if we do, do you think they will play a role in helping her see the light and reform? Or maybe they are the reason she is how she is in the first place and she'll realize that their way was wrong and become a typical friendly pony? Secondarily, if we don't see them, do you think they have even been told about what their daughter did and were allowed to say goodbye before she was locked away in Tartarus? Because if they weren't told anything, that is unbelievably cruel both to them and to Cozy to cut them off from each other so totally like that.
  2. Specifically, all of the things we've learned about Sunset and Celestia's relationship so seems to go out of its way to suggest that Sunset's fall was entirely her own fault. But this doesn't make sense or stand up to logical muster. Celestia specifically chose Sunset to be her protege, just as she did Twilight, and until things turned off the tracks presumably had Twi's current role in mind for her. Sunset clearly had faults, like her ambition and callousness, but Celestia as her mentor had a responsibility to try to right the path Sunset was on. And even if you say that it was impossible for Sunset to verge back away from the darkness at that point in time, it is unbelievably reckless and careless of Celestia to simply let her go into self-imposed exile in a dimension neither of them knew much of anything about. What if serious harm had come to her? And you do get the sense, from how Sunset responded to Celestia's treatment of and relationship with Twi in Forgotten Friendship, and from their interactions in the comic that gave more context to Sunset's flight, that Celestia never really cared for Sunset in the same way that she did Twilight; at the very least, it seems like she was far more harsh and confrontational than we've ever seen her be with Twilight (Sunset was surprised that Celestia even had a sense of humor, apparently). And yet the show has never suggested that maybe Celestia's missteps and behavior contributed to the situation even slightly; this is the one major issue I had with Forgotten Friendship, when they reconciled Sunset just accepted all of the blame for what happened unto herself and Celestia didn't interject at all, not even a simple, "Maybe I could have done some things differently with you, as well." In the end, clearly Sunset's ambition and cold nature what were the greatest contributing factor to her fall, but I entirely reject the idea that Celestia holds no blame, which seems to be the series's position. I'm sorry, but if you hand-pick someone to be your personal apprentice and trainee and they fall from the path, you hold blame for not steering them right and especially for not at least recognizing the severity of their problems before they reach a point of no return. Celestia did not do this, and neither has she acknowledged it, and I don't know why. Maybe it is because the writers want her moral character and decision-making, her general goodness, to be above reproach, but even the best people make mistakes, and to me this was a clear one. From how Sunset is now, it is obvious that she was by no means a lost cause; she failed herself, yes, but Celestia also failed her. I wish the show would touch on that aspect of the situation. What are your thoughts?
  3. For me, the answer is very easy. I was so excited when COTLM happened because I thought that, if the writers made the effort to reform my favorite pony, then surely there was more in store for her character. At least an episode or two showcasing she and Silver's new attitudes and relationship with the other schoolchildren. Instead they did . . . nothing. She's appeared in a few episodes, less than a handful, as a mute character and has yet to say a single word since what I thought was going to be a great moment for her. It has gotten to the point that I kind of wish that her change had never happened; at least if she were still an antagonist, I would still get to see her and enjoy her as I previously had. There is, of course, still half a season left to go, but I've less than zero hope that Diamond Tiara ever gets to do anything again. What about you, are there any disappointing moments and/or decisions of the show for you?
  4. Do you think the Mane Six and Co. will discover the Villainous Alliance, or at least suspect something is amiss, before their scheme becomes clear in the finale? Or will they be completely oblivious until the last possible moment? Personally, I hope things go on in the background (thanks to the villains) that don't reveal the scope of the problem, but that do make the Mane Six alert and uneasy. Thoughts?
  5. Why hasn't Sweetie Belle yet achieved her lifelong clear goal of becoming a Wonderbolt? How is it fair that Rainbow Dash got in and she didn't even get a tryout?
  6. More Diamond Tiara would have made every second she was part of better, and thereby, the show as a whole better.
  7. Not even in the most generous interpretation of the word.
  8. Not sure that I agree that Flim and Flam's talents have anything to do with manipulation. It is more that conning is just what they chose to do.Their cutie marks are apple-based.
  9. That was a fantastic episode; the writers really need to tell us why Cozy is how she is at some point, though. We know what Tirek and Chrysalis are about, but we really don't know what motivates Cozy beyond vague aspirations for power and authority. Even her talent, which seems to be being manipulative, is odd for a pony. How does a pony get a mark in something such as that?
  10. Only if you go into it with absurd expectations of something far beyond what the show normally does.
  11. Maybe he is immune to his powers in some way, or he is too strong for it to work? Besides, I doubt that Grogar is dull enough to ever put his guard down with any of them. He is a villain himself, after all, he knows how it works and not to actually trust them.
