Preliminary Topic Before I begin my review, I must bring up an essential topic. If you already know why Celestia is a problematic character and what those problems are, then there is no need to read this section. Feel free to skip down to the review at any time. Season 8 Episode 7 “Horse Play” Review by EpicEnergy To begin with, I have much to say about the characters, starting with Celestia. There are three things about her that I want to address. Firstly, the writers fixed the area where Celestia’s ability to raise the sun was diminished due to the Hearth’s Warming story that said unicorns could “bring forth day and night”. Now we understand that bringing forth day and night was not as simplistic as the Hearth’s Warming story depicted it to be, because it required multiple unicorns and Starswirl himself to raise the sun, which permanently depletes the other unicorns of their magic in the process. The strength required to raise the sun is now evident, and it makes Celestia more important and unique. I must commend the writers for providing this significant and needed fix. Secondly, this episode reveals and expounds on more of Celestia’s characteristics, making her even more enjoyable and relatable. Thirdly, this episode creates a negative characteristic in Celestia. Throughout this episode, Celestia interprets things too literally. It starts to get very annoying, but at least Celestia makes up for it in the end. Proceeding, I now will address Twilight’s behavior. Twilight acts out-of-character and bluntly lies to Celestia throughout the episode, which is illogical because she should have listened to Applejack in the first place and she should have known that telling the truth to Celestia would be morally correct and not contradictory to everything Twilight learned. Twilight’s actions are unreasonable, so I must deduct a few points off the episode rating. Lastly, I will briefly refer to the Method Mares. Their involvement in this episode provides even more theatre-related content, adding to this episode’s theatrical theme. The last subject I want to refer to is the moral. It is very basic, and completely unnecessary. It’s also a repeated moral, we obviously heard it before in previous episodes. The focus of the episode was on Celestia and not the moral; consequently, the moral didn’t receive the same treatment, and it is not satisfactory. Everyone already knows not to lie and to tell the truth. Episode Rating: 5/10 In conclusion, this episode focused on making Celestia a better character, and it succeeded despite not fixing every single one of her problems. However, the episode also made Twilight be unreasonable and gave us a basic moral that was already given in previous episodes. I would say that this episode had a balance of positive and negative features, giving it a “mediocre” rating. Rating Scale:
As watching the show and watching my little pony, i do the opposite of some people. I watch the mane characters. Twilight, though shes learning more about friendship, still has alot more to learn. Even when princess of friendship, she fails at it miserably. like, for example, in Twilight's kingdom, she only took the battle serious when a couple of books were destroyed, not to mention the princesses think that this will make her understand what being princess is about? You gave her your magic. That's the only reason she could be at an impass. with borrowed magic. the princess of friendship wouldve so easily had equestria burned to ashes. unless celestia be trollin' because she knew twilight would friendship weapons grade hard at tirek...hell, maybe she let him out. In the show shes also been known to have outbursts. She also says she's prepared for anything, yet shit happens because she has a spazz attack about other things other than focusing on keeping it all together and making sure things go as plan, other times shes a maximum try hard and ruins it because she stresses over it. Like in and something similiar happened in "Once Apon A Zeppelin." where she focused on other things instead of what was important: Friends/Family. But I understand she wants to make people happy. but the real problem is, WHY DID THEY SIT THERE AND ENJOY THE NORTHERN STARS WITHOUT HER!!?? I mean seriously? Rub it in why dont'chya? anyways, She should have told the cruise ponies she wanted time with her family. she should have been telling the truth...gah. She's like fluttershy at this point. she keeps learning the same thing. Often times, it's like The Last Roundup: Twilight Sparkle Adition. Not to mention, with these outbursts she doesnt act friendly at all. Twilight's harsh outburst being the honest-apple-dirt-horse would've saved your flank. she has another harsh outburst in Mlp:Themovie. That on part two...What do you guys think? Do you think twilight should step down? Do you think she'll learn by the end, or continue to fail friendship? Focusing on the mane six in the next one.
