This was more about Twilight and her friends than the villian anyway.
And yes, Twilight, we can't wait to see what your destiny is.
Also those songs were good back when I first heard them, but seeing them in the context of the episode added so much to them, especially the Failure Song. And the visuals...God damn
they have stepped up their game on the animation. And those backgrounds with Celestia, Luna and Twilight's cutie marks? Yeah, that was awesome.
So much to say, so little time. But I definately give these episodes a combined 10/10. Season 3 looks like it'll be epic for sure.
The mental invasions, slavery (at some point I thought he said "Crystal Slaves") and anti-teleportation cage were fairly potent. But not quite a reality bender or demigoddess, no.
He did in fact say that.
I'll have to wait for the high quality release to confirm, but was there a symbol on the book Celestia and Luna had at the end?
Definately something on that book, but I couldn't see what it was.
EDIT: Oh and I totally expect the fanart community to positively explode
in the next few days. Can anyone say Crystal Mane 6?
