MLP Season 3 Finale Reaction


Well, fellow bronies and pegasisters, this morning was the moment we've all been waiting for: the MLP Season 3 Finale!

You can tell that Hasbro and The Hub have been building up to this episode, what with them promoting the ever-living heck out of it and releasing tons upon tons of spoilers. With the finale being only one episode, I didn't think they would release as many spoilers as they did.

As with every other brony, I've really been anticipating this episode. I really wanted to preserve my first impression of it, so I decided to forgo the spoilers. It wasn't easy, and it was even tempting to want to take a sneak peek, but I decided not to, and waited until the episode was released to finally see what it was about.

Of course, I knew what the premise was--and really, it was hard not to know ("Princess Coronation")--but even then, I didn't know exactly what to expect.

And then I saw the episode this morning.

Holy. Sweet. Celestia.

Obviously this episode had a big impact on me, as it apparently did the rest of the brony community.
I'm not going to go into much detail now. I'm going to wait until my recap on this episode--which sadly is going to be late, as I have a lot of work this weekend!

But my two initial thoughts on this:

First: Ah, so this is where all the songs for Season 3 went to! I was wondering why there were so little songs this season. They were saving it all for this episode, and boy, did they save the best for last!

Second: So, where do we go from here?

You have to admit, with the BIG change that happened in this episode, it's a game changer for the  series. You know things aren't going to be the same from here on out. How can they be? This was a really big change. Perhaps even too big. Who knows? This could very well be the series jumping the shark. It can either get better from here on out, or it could be all downhill from here. Who knows? We'll have to wait until Season 4 to find out.

As I said, I'll go into more detail in my next recap, which will obviously be my last for this season.

And as with the previous two seasons, I'm going to have a "Top 5 Best/Worst Episodes" list for this season. Obviously, this episode is going to make the list. Which one? Well, I think you can guess.

And for those who haven't seen the episode yet, you can watch it here!
