Thoughts on S4:E1+2: Princess Twilight Sparkle
This is, without a doubt, the most heavily hyped set of episodes thus far. After all the endless controversy that the Season 3 finale brought to the fandom, these episodes have a lot of work to do. Even moreso than the S3 finale, these episode bear the burden of making us believe that yes, all of the changes to the status quo that the third season made can work. It needs to answer all the questions about Twilight’s new role as well as cover what’s up with Discord. There’s a lot of ground to cover in just two episodes, and given FIM’s previous issues with pacing, there’s a lot of potential for things to go horribly wrong. But have they?
I don’t think so.
In fact, I personally think that they tackled just about every major issue that they needed to, and addressed pretty much everything that had to be addressed, and they did so in a very interesting and fun way. T
