I technically could too, but it wasn't even 5 episodes apart for Celestia's sake.
Where is the quality control in Hasbro?

It's like with School Raze and Uprooted with the missmatched element colours on the Young 6.
When it's a retcon to something from seasons up to 5, it's acceptable. But they can't do 5 episodes without contradicting themselves on the way. It's unacceptable.

Next Three episodes sound really interesting, and I am really looking forward to them.

With all that said, I am worried about the episode 13, as it was written by Gail Simone, who is recconized for being "one of the most important females in comic industry; is noted for raising awareness of the representation of women in comics".

She has also did no previous work for the show (which reminds me of a certain other writter ) which just makes me feel more uncertain.

My worry is that the episode may be a little preachy, if it's writter decides to put her own beliefs over the actual quality of the story.

It's not something that would make me skip the episode, but it creates some uncertainty about it's acutal quality.

Me too. If they wrote a good episode, I will be praising it as much as I did today's. Tough it's not keeping me from having my worries when an individual who's known for having an agenda will be writting an episode.

People need to learn that I am not saying that "episode is bad because it's written by x". If Becky Wangberg would come to write another episode, with the change being that this one wouldn't suck, I would praise it just like the others. All I am saying that I have my worries for the quality of episode if an ideolog with no expirience on ponies will be writting a piece for the final season of the show. I doesn't sound like a wise decision, but it may turn out great. Only time will tell.

What I like the most about Apple Bloom wanting to catch The Great Seedling doesn't just come from her being a naive kid, she wants to catch it due to it being beneficial to the harvest.

Hopefully not. It's not good for the story.

And the story should be the most important in any show, especially in last season of our fav pastel horses TV show.

@rdibp

She is quite like AJ in this manner. She wanted to do that to help her family, and thats admirable.

I knooow… but I was kinda hopeing that another "Background pony swearing troll" is gonna come up and yell at me for "disagreeing with the important values". It's fun to see people getting worked up defending thier ideologies, and it makes for an interesting social study

On a diffrent note, I really like that Apple Bloom helmet with sticks. It looks awesome for a show that tries to avoid "dark" subject like death or divorce, but has no problems with showing of helmet that would belong on a real life soldier

I really hate the mindset most people have that every single episode should be some grand epic adventure just because it's the last season.

While I do want big episodes here and there, the show is at it's best when doing slice of life stories.

@rdibp
I hate that too; that's one of the reasons why I left the other Season 9 thread cause there were way too many people (especially BGP's) clamoring for that crap.

Like today's episode?

To be honest, the episodes I enjoyed the most "Common Ground", "Sparkle's Seven" and "Going to Seed" were the best of the season, and are tehnically a "slice of life" type ones

Looking back, I generally find Slice of Life (not the episode, that was a mess) to be the most interesting types of the episodes, as they mostly work to flesh-out characters.
