To be fair, Starlight was great in The ending of the end. She was doing lots of heroic things that a main character from a idealistic kids show would do. I know many people didn’t like that episode, but by the time I watched it (last year), I accepted all the jank in the show, the good jank and the bad jank.
There was one scene where Starlight teleported herself and Chrysalis to a mountain to avoid damage in Ponyville and the friendship school. I wish we saw more of this in the last four seasons instead of waiting just for this episode to come out, but considering who we’re talking about, I think this is a great step foward.
One of the best episodes in season 9.
