Twilight's Destiny by PluckyNinja Twilight's Destiny by PluckyNinja
So, there was one more thing about the season finale that I forgot to mention in my initial reaction blog post (found here: [link]), which didn't quite pass the sniff test but it took a little longer to sink in. I figured the most effective (and entertaining) way to describe the problem would be via a comic, so here you go.

Basically, the second half of the episode more or less negates the message of the first half, and that kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe I'm not giving the writers enough credit, since for all I know this could be a very important part of the supposed Princess Twilight three episode arc that Meghan McCarthy mentioned, however at this point, I can only really judge the season finale as a single episode.

SPECIAL THANKS: Deviant BeltedYapper suggested the song "Free Will" by Rush as a companion to this comic. It even mentions Celestia (sort of)! Listen to it here: [link]

no no no, the thre arch thing doesn't need a damn princess to do it, just a hero


there is a difference and they are not always the same,


and pretty much never under the false pretense the show dilutes itself with

Very true! I'm not against the idea of Twilight becoming an alicorn princess, but I find this unfair that Celestia just turned her into an alicorn, without asking, even without talking. That's your destiny, Twilight, deal with it! And no, there are no books about being a princess. We will figure it out "later".
+ your comic is great!

It seems like the biggest problem of the episode is that the focus and structuring made the whole ordeal feel lackluster which made the concepts presented in this (awesome) comic feel more flawed and contrived.

However, in the spirit of Lauren Faust, I'd like to share what might have been considered a "better" episode based on "fixing the flaws" (quotes are there for a reason):

Psch, the biggest problem is that toy marketing got to influence the show period. Simple as that. : P
