X Days Until Season 4
And with that, like all good things, the season’s over.
I’d like to thank all of you again for sticking by me throughout the season. I have something special planned for the future that I know you’ll like. Of course, this page will need an upgrade now that the season’s over, because I jolly well can’t call it “X Days Until Season 4” anymore since Season 4’s finished, can’t I. Either way, though, thank you for such a good time. 
And of course, I CAN’T keep going on thanking people without mentioning the people who brought us this trememdous season. So thank you! Everyone! Whoever you are! If you worked on the show in any capacity this season, take a bow. You deserve it:

As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. Let’s give these hundreds of men and women a rousing round of applause!

425 & 426 - Twilight’s Kingdom

This is it! The finale to end all finales!

The evil Lord Tirek, banished 30 years ago to the Gates of Tartarus, has escaped and is wreaking havoc across Equestria! So, in a desprate attempt to stop him, Princess Celestia sends out the most qualified creature in all Equestria for the job: Discord. Twilight, feeling left out, tries to prove herself worthy of her crown and her new wings by discovering the secrets of the Mysterious Box from the Permiere. But with Tirek increasingly unstoppable, things go from Bad to Worse in a heartbeat, culminating in the climax to end all climaxes (At least until next season.)

All questions will at last be answered in this episode. What role will Princess Twilight serve in Equestria? Can Tirek be stopped? Will Equerstria fall to evil once and for all? What will change forever?

But by far, the most important question of all:

What’s in the box? (Gif from Ponies: The Anthology 3; short “Box Box Box” created by Snivian Moon)

Well, what the hell are you waiting for? PRESS PLAY!

What? Throwback Friday (I know that doesn’t sound quite as catchy.)
Anyway, Wow. This is it. The last hurrah. Only 12 hours until the end of one of the most wild seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. What will happen? Who knows. But what I do know is that we are in for one hell of a show! 
I can’t thank all of you enough for all the support you gave this blog. All the reblogs, all the comments, all the likes, the followers, everything. And I hope you all like what I have next in store for this blog. 
In the meantime, Happy Finale!

Good news: Season 5 confirmed by The Hub!
Bad news: The hiatus has been doubled.
Guess we’ll just wait.

What did you think?

Now, I have a question for all of my followers (and anyone else who reads this). With the penultimate episode having finally aired and the finale only a week away, I might as well ask: what did you think of the season? This season was one of experimentation, so in that regard, what experiments did you think fell flat and which ones rose to the top? What episodes did you like, what did you not like? The showrunners love reading your constructive criticism and this can help make a better My Little Pony. 

424 - Eqeustria Games

In this, the penultimate episode of Season 4, the Equestria Games at least have come to the Crystal Empire. Over 15 months have lead up to this day, and at last we can see these games unfold. Who will be victorious? Who will come home disgraced? And will Spike overcome his self doubt? 

Because that’s the main focus of this episode.

Spike has been given the great honor of being able to light the torch to open the games. But his nerves suddenly get the better of him and he is unable to accomplish the task. Feeling he let everyone down, Spike is left to wonder if he can ever be of any use again.

423 - Inspiration Manifestation

Rarity’s having a bit of a shoddy day: her traveling puppet theater was rejected because it doesn’t travel (the wheels were there for show) and she’s desperate to contribute something to the Foal and Filly Fair. So Spike, wanting to help the mare who called him her “Favorite Dragon”, looks for a spell at the Old Castle. He eventually finds an Inspiration Manifestation spell…in a Necronomicon. 

When she casts it on herself, things start getting…unsavoury for Ponyville. 

422 - Trade Ya

Today’s episode finds us back in Rainbow Falls, where the girls (and Spike) are partaking in the annual Traders Exchange. Rainbow Dash it trying to obtain a First-Edition copy of Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone (which will complete her First-Edition collection), Applejack and Rarity are trying to pull their stuff together to get something the other has deemed worthless, and Twilight’s trying to make some more room in her library by giving away her books (with no help from Pinkie). Meanwhile, it’s a mad dash for Rainbow Dash (see what I did there?) as she goes through trade after trade in her quest for Daring Do. 

…Which begs the question, if she knows the author (who wrote her into the latest book), why couldn’t she get a copy from her? Ah, well. I’m over thinking it. 

421 - Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

The Wonderbolts Reserves. The few. The proud. Surely we won’t ever hear from them again.

Anyway, Rainbow Dash is preparing to take her entrance exam to join the group, but can’t seem to know anything about their history. Not helping matters is Twilight shoehorning her ways down Rainbow’s slacker throat. And with everyone else throwing in their two bits, can Rainbow Dash learn anything before it’s too late? 

420 - Leap of Faith

The Apple clan is headed into town one day to some shocking news: The Flim-Flam Brothers, once cast out for trying to run the Apple Family out of town, have returned.

This time, they come bearing peace…and cure all tonic. One spoonful will cure whatever ails you!

Yes, and I’m the Queen of Switzerland.

Applejack is just as skeptical…until Granny Smith tries some and it seems to cure what ails her, just as the Brothers claimed. 

But upon further investigation, Applejack realizes not only is the tonic the snake oil she feared it was, but Granny Smith’s life is now in danger. Applejack is thus at the greatest crossroads of her life: tell Granny Smith the truth and risk ruining her happiness, or hide the deception and potentially kill her.
