Opaline singing reminded me of Tempest. No matter how much they try and deny it, they are both still ponies.
I just watched the new episode and I’m pretty sure Opaline needs a psychologist.

I can’t decide.

Yeah Opaline will never be reformed. Itd be very very tone deaf for the show to portray realistic parental emotional abuse then do a heel turn and go “forgive your abusers!”. Plus everything is kinda pointing away from her.
She’s not just cartoonishly evil like NMM, Chrysalis and Sombra, she also is realistically evil, especially to a character who they should care for. Her personality and role in the story kinda requires she isnt reformed (like what problems could they have if they had another op alicorn on their side???)
@Background Pony #97A2
Because a character who is realistically evil deserves it? Its not like the broad cartoon villiany of “take over the world” or something (altho she does have that goal), she is an abuser through and through.
Alot of kids and adults have been hurt by abuse so itd be really really bad for a kids show to basically say its ok in the end. and yeah misty loves opaline still bc shes her mother, that doesnt change the fact its an unhealthy situation thats very blatant abuse.
I dont think theyll kill her (altho id say its possible depending on if shes made of corrupted magic due to a false ascension?), she will likely be a reoccuring villian but for a final thing she will likely be imprisoned in some magical place or jailed.

They arent gonna introduce her as an alicorn and then reveal her to og be a unicorn just to jebait it and say she was an alicorn the whole time, its a pointless and confusing twist especially for kids.
Also yeah it remains to be seen, as Opaline implies there were fire alicorns before her (i think its a way for a pony to become an alicorn themselves, and the knowledge was sealed away for obv reasons)
Also I kinda disagree, sunny really isnt that powerful, and she doesnt know how to use her powers at all. Opaline on the otehr hand has most of her magic drained yet she is still extremely scary. She could very much take over, but her crippling need to be seen as god and be feared and love prevents her from doing it (implying shes not bound to her castle?)
