So! I watched my first livestream of the episode for this one, and watched it twice in a row, and I cannot, in good faith, geek out about it the way I normally do. Information overload! So just a quick thing about things that struck out.
*Uh...Lyra spoke. And she apparently is close enough friends with Princess Cadance that she is a bridesmaid. I don't even....
*Vinyl Scratch - we saw her eyes. That mystery is now laid to rest
*This felt a lot like The Little Mermaid to me before the Changeling revealed itself. My Little Pony, the musical! And that one song Cadence sang sounded SOO familiar, and I just can't place it.
*Not sure how I feel about Cadance, but she's there, soooo~~~yeah.
*And how weak are these Princesses?!? Princess Celestia defeated so easily? Princess Cadance couldn't even move that train cart track type thing....she has MAGIC! Ugh.
*And defeating the enemy with her love....okay, then! It IS a show for little girls.
*AJ with her hat - how cute!
*Sibsy's OC in the episode? Hell yeah.
*Pinkie Pie attacking with her party canon? BEST. WEAPON. EVER! Not to mention the fact that she sneezes confetti.
*Heh, AJ, "Real me. REAL ME!" And Fluttershy pretending to be a changling? Go, Fluttershy!
*Epic fight scene...always good.
*For once, the Elements of Harmony didn't defeat the epic bad guy.
*And does epic bad guy have a name?
*So many things. Twilight's parents making a second appearance! That was sweet.
*The bouquet gag - both times
....okay, too many things keep coming to mind....sooooo, let me end here, and ask...what was YOUR favorite part, what did you find notable, what did you think of Shining Armor and Princess Cadance (or her Mary Sue name - Princess Mi Amore Cadenza), how's you like the episode, and how do you feel now that Season 2 is over?
