Could be a redemption arc, could be she has been feeding hints to the S9 nemesis, could be both :)

But why?

Because S9 is the wrapup season and she is a loose end?

I think that Young Six will become Bearers of Harmony, when Mane 6 will be too busy to keep Equestria safe.  They now have to run a school and many other stuff...

Cozy Glow's plan makes no sense. Making friends does not equal power. It's only Twilight's group of friends (and the student six) that has power because they're connected to the elements. I don't see how Cozy has any threat because after taking of Twilight's school, what power does she have? She has no plans on how she could take out Celestia or Luna so I just can't take her seriously as an antagonist.

Pretty much the entire first part is also really bad since it's been painfully obvious that Cozy is evil, yet the episode builds it up like the audience isn't supposed to know and her being revealed as evil is a huge reveal. And Starlight getting locked up by Cozy is ridiculous. Even considering Starlight has no magic and Cozy has the element of surprise, Starlight is bigger than Cozy. In general, Cozy's plan actually working is insanely contrived. You're saying that none of the other students than the student six find Starlight's note suspicious. And how is Cozy able to convince the other students that the student six are wrong about the note by appealing to pony-centrism? Do the other students actually think that ponies can't be scheming and evil? It's incredibly unbelievable that not one other student other than the student six ever find Cozy to be suspicious. But of course, if this episode made sense, Cozy wouldn't be able to do anything. 

As for the subplot in Tartarus, it's pointless. I assume it's there to convince the audience that the mane six serve a point, but they don't they don't. They serve as much of a point as Starlight, except the episode doesn't give an entire subplot to Starlight. The jokes aren't funny and the way they get out makes no sense. The animals lost all their magic already. And even if they have magic, the amount that they're still shown to have is ridiculous.

There are other issues too. The ending is anti-climactic, the CMC get shoved in a closet instead of doing anything, the student six still aren't interesting, and Neighsay's arc is really basic. First he's racist. Then he learns that being racist is bad.

I can't think of anything good here. Everything about this episode is so contrived and badly done. 

Score: 0/10

You're wrong about the CMC not doing anything. They DISTRACTED Cozy Glow, while the other student 6 went to help Neighsay. It was small, but their single action of distraction set in motion our heroes' victory. Without the CMC help, Cozy would have won. You don't have to do something big to be heroic and the CMC didn't do it for recognition. They did it to help their friend, which is far more important than the scale of their help

And Neighsay wasn't being racist without good reason. In the past, Changelings invaded twice, dragons and Yaks threaten to go to war with Ponies, one Griffin left Rainbow Dash at the bottom of a chasm she couldn't fly out of, and the Queen of the Hippogriffs refused to help the ponies while hiding from the Storm King. All this gave him good reason not to trust the non-ponies and in his mind, he believed non ponies could destroy Equestria. Which is why he never suspected Cozy Glow of being evil until it was too late. It wasn't a non-pony who would destroy Equestria as we know it, it was a power-hungry little kid. 

When the students saved him, he realized that he was wrong, and like good people, the student 6 forgive him when he owed up to his misguided racist views of others. He truly was thinking about what's best for Equestria and has just simply been under a false belief that non-ponies are not to be trusted.

A lot happened in these episodes and it did not feel rushed. Cozy unlike all the other major villains, she lacks powerful magic, she causes all this mess with her knowledge and manipulative skills. So far she and her backstory remains a mystery, I guess we will learn more about her in season 9. Before watching this episode I though that cozy worked for neighsey, so the fact that she worked with tirek surprised me, even if I knew tirek will appear here.

Tirek on the other hand was more goofy here than I would have liked, and how did he managed to write cozy glow from tartarus? There were some plot holes but overall it was an enjoyable episode and I am looking forward to see cozy's interaction with tirek next season. In addition, it was nice to see the cmc in the finale even if they did not do a lot.   8\10

Cozy Glow is a scheme for this one. They anticipated the disappearance of magic in Equestria. We can't defend Equestria without magic! At the last part of the eighth season finale, the Equestrian magic is back thanks to the Young Six who restored all Equestrian magic and released Starlight Glimmer from there! Cozy Glow is sent to Tartarus for doing something schemy with all of Equestrian magic.

I will say this is a great episode and the season finale too! :-D :love:

Cozy looks and acts almost exactly like Darla Dimple from Cat's Don't Dance. 
She is evil, manipulative, and probably had the most intelligent plan of any villain in the entire series by far. She is now my favorite villain.

Few words said about this episode: COZY. GLOW. IS. A. BITCH! Pardon my language. I'm HAPPY that this is ONE villain that they didn't forgive. Thanks too the school mane-6, I guarantee that the school mane-6 are gonna become the heroes towards the end of season 9. Juuuuuuuuuust a hunch

Am I the only one who noticed the first ever cannon appearance of a Royal Guard mare?

Nope quite a few people mentioned that we get them in this episode. There's actually two when she first gets apprehended one white and that blue one.
