I get all that. Last season or not, there is still room for development for characters, like the villains. And as for having a character at least be semi-threatening, we do have Grogar and it looks like they are planning on doing something with him.

It seems like they are doing pretty well with Lady Bug tough. Even if she seems a bit crazy, she is still powerfull.

As with Grogar, nothing we have seen so far makes me sure that he is "The" villan of MLP. The plot twist we have already discussed but there are few more things about him:
– It feels like even Hasbro has no idea about what his "plan" really is. He wanted to unite villians but he already killed one off, ignored the trio instead of trying to unite them and is soo vauge with his plan that it really makes me doubt that he even has one.
– He hasn’t shown anything particularly powerfull yet. It feels like the sytuation with Fluttershy all over again where show states how "confident" she has become through all seasons, but we still mainly get ethier a doormat fluttershy or flutterbitch in most episodes. It creates a dissonace when someone tells us one thing, but shows us something completly diffrent.
– He still seems mostly absent from "his" episodes. We are 3 villian episodes in, and Grogar had maybe 10 minutes of screen time. Hasbro has to give him more development instead of rideing the "G1 Grogar" hypetrain. Our knowlege on him in this Universe is very tiny, and that should change till finale.

I hope so too. He seems to really have potential to be a great character. There is community Hype for him, a solid backstory and a "servicable" (altough, I prefere his G1 version) desing. Now he only needs time to shine.

(except of making Rarity slightly racist).

Can you elaborate on what you mean by that?

About Grogar not seeing their plans for backstabbing, I would chalk that up to the spell the pony used to hide the bell also obscuring Grogar’s vision of the place they obtained the spell from, so he couldn’t see and hear their plotting.
Granted, that doesn’t explain why he doesn’t know the bell is in the same room as him in the last scene though, hehe.
(OR he knows and he knows it will somehow still help him when the other 3 think they can backstab him)

I remember that some people took Rarity’s behaviour as "racist" in that episode. Not really sure why tough, when I rewatched the episode. If anything I’d put it up to this line:
Yona: Yona like brown.
Rarity: Blech… Earth tones. They’re so… [laughs nervously] …earthy, aren’t they? Don’t worry. We shall find something to make you stand out.

Altough, if I were to debate that Rarity is "racist", i’d use more of the older examples of her opinion on Earth Ponies.
This episode kicked off quite a bit of a shit storm when It came out. That was before the "yes-men" came along and said that it was pretty good (nothing wrong with that opinion, you can like whatever you like).

You are probably right on that one. And yea, I too think that the "bell being in the same room" is probably an oversight on Hasbro’s part. But hey, they still have over half of the season to get thier writting back on the right track.

After "Common Ground", I kinda expected better writting tough. That episode was probably the best MLP has ever had in it’s history. ^^

Hm, okay. I don’t see Rarity being racist in that ep at all. If anything she was being elitist and snobby in trying to teach Yona how to act like a LADY, that had nothing to do with race.


One thing just came to mind:


Just now wondering, did Chrysalis actually feed on that thing’s love? So it fell in love on first sight?
Or was that primitive animalistic lust and Chrysalis can canonically feed on that too?

That’s ridiculous – She was pretty much just saying that that color wasn’t fashionable or didn’t fit her.

I’d put it more in the realm of lust than a "real love".

Also, the way that She seems to be feeding looks really similar to the way that Dementors from Harry Potter fed. I’d love to see more of fan art of Cryssi as dementor :P

I find it riddiculous too. There are far worse things she has said in past season. If anything was "wrong" about Rarity in this one, it would be the way she was animated.

Seems more lust than love to me too, so they can do this. But that never really came up for obvious reasons, did it?
So changeling prostitutes would be able sustain themselves from their profession in two ways, interesting.

Btw, pls edit your comments instead of doubleposting, or I will tell the mods on you :P

Hold on…

There is nothing wrong with double posting, as long as it isn’t a spam (or twice the same thing). It’s not discord where you get multiple notification for each post.

Especially since I was replying to 2 diffrent people, and the second reply was to the post that I haven’t seen before posting my frist reply.

That was mostly in jest because you both did it right after each other

Though I DO think editing is better when it’s just a moment later, uses less space in the discussion as it’s just one comment
