    The Crystal Empire was only just chosen. There's still a long time until the Equestria Games.
    Side note...

    Why do people keep assuming that just because the Equestria Games didn't happen in Season 3, they won't happen at all?

    Think on that.





    And now... BED!

    You're assuming that picture from 4Chan of a personal opinion is completely correct.

    You should stop that.

    It definitely should have been a 2-parter, though.



    As for discrediting the alicorns, I don't think so. All we know is that Twilight has wings. She still probably isn't anywhere near Celestia and Luna in terms of magical ability. And she most certainly (probably) doesn't have the lifespan of the Sisters.

    She can just fly now. She can fly, and she's a princess.

    But really, she's already saved the world like... three times? If she was GOING to be treated like royalty, she would have already been. Nothing's really changed.


    We just might get more episodes in Cloudsdale now~



    Edit:
    In fact, I daresay that this has actually increased the value of what Celestia and Luna can do. Afterall, Celestia completely changed Twi's DNA. Permanently altered her form and body.
    It wasn't glorious, it was cramped and felt terrible to watch. I couldn't stand having all of them doing all of that as quickly as they did. In fact, in recollection, I do believe that all of them are talking much, much more quickly than they should be. That's bad. I will not lap this garbage of an episode up, nor will I forgive the absolutely disgusting decline in quality. Cramming six or so songs into the episode just did worse for it. The songs are all mushed together and there's no padding between them.

    All in all, this episode is an unforgivable sin.

    That is definitely an opinion. I wouldn't consider this the best of this season, or of the series, but I found it an average episode, mostly because of the reasons you said there. It was rushed and the alicorn stuff throws a lot of wrenches into the cogs of the machines we know so little about already.

    Sin? I don't think so. Best episode? Definitely not either.

    The show's writers have a LOT more control over the show than you seem to realize. Hasbro doesn't come in and call the shots. They just sit there, waiting for the product to be brought to them, then approve it if it's up to snuff.



    This wasn't Hasbro after free advertising, or trying to make more money, or trying to save more money, or whatever.

    This is what the writers wanted to do. And I like to trust that they know what they're doing.

    Indeed.

    Personally, I find it to be a fantastic episode. Not the best; as it's being held back by its rushed nature and its very unexpected development.

    But, as I said, for what it does have, it was fantastic.

    Best episode? No way. Worst episode? Hell no. I direct your attention to that Spike and the Timberwolves episode for that particular title.

    Worst episode is a definate give to last weeks episode for me.
    Only episode so far that I disliked enough to just stop watching completely.
