Episode directed by Denny Lu and Tim Stuby
We’re back for the last time this year as we’ve reached the end of My Little Pony’s sixth season! It’s not always the best show out there as episodes like The Cart Before the Ponies or 28 Pranks Later have clearly proven, but it’s always deflating to get to the end of a season knowing that it’ll be quite some time before they pick things back up again; especially considering they just released the latest Equestria Girls movie instead of waiting a bit and using it to tide us over between now and season seven. WHAT DO I HAVE LEFT!? Oh wait, they’re still making the comics. That should work! Anyway, does this episode cap off the sixth season on a high note and leave us wanting more, or will we begging for it to be over as soon as possible? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins at Twilight’s Doom Fortress where the three primary residents, Twilight, Starlight, and the slave boy, are moving books into the basement because there’s not enough room left upstairs. Wait, does her castle actually double as a library or is this her personal hoard? I mean, it’s not like the small town of Ponyville was swimming in libraries BEFORE Tirek torched Golden Oaks to the ground, so you’d think Twilight AT LEAST owes that much to the city. Oh I’m sorry, were Twilight and Starlight talking about friendship or something? I wasn’t payment that much attention and neither was Spike for that matter who wanders off from the conversation to look out the window. A wise move considering there’s something heading right for them at terminal velocity.
