Well, that was one great season, wasn't it?

The season finale is coming this week, and it's called Magical Mystery Cure by M. A. Larson, also known for writing other great episodes such as Sonic Rainboom, The Cutie Mark Chronicles, The Return of Harmony and Luna Eclipsed. The summary of this episode reads:

"Twilight accidentally casts a spell that switches the Cutie Marks and destinies of all her friends. The only way she can reverse the spell is by writing her own magic."

There will be a nine-episode marathon preceding the season finale, which will begin from 6:00 AM EST/3:00 AM PST and ending at 10:30 AM EST/7:30 AM PST, which is when the new episode will air. This is all going to happen on Saturday, February 16, airing at The Hub, so be sure not to miss it! Also, please do not forget to support this show through iTunes!


Dont forget to visit Bronystate to watch the episode as soon as it airs!
If talking isnt your thing, then the Spike room has no chatbox, while the Applejack and Rarity rooms are generally the quietest of the bunch.

Honestly if this episode isn't great it only has the S4 pilot to redeem itself, if neither sticks out as a truly good episode i'm going back to anime, and i have never made that claim before, and honestly i may catch an episode here and there to see if things picked up, but my participation in the fandom will stop, if that makes any sense.
I dont think i'm ready, but whatever.

I am in your camp, more or less. For me, Season 3 has just been wasted potential from start to finish. It just seems like the majority of episodes suffer from a myriad of different execution issues that have made things not as fun as they used to be. It's the reason why I'm nervous to all hell about Saturday.

If MMC doesn't deliver, I'll just write the season off as a loss and try to expunge it from my mind. Despite my disappointment, the first 2 seasons were just too good for me to write off the show completely for a half season I didn't like. Then there's the fact that I adored SiP, really, really liked WA inspite of its' ending, liked KCaFO, despite its' flaws and admired how well executed JFS and AFR were. That's at least 5 episodes that I would have no problem watching again, along with at least the 45 episodes thought were very good from the first 2 seasons.

That's 50 episodes of very good to masterful TV. And even in the 15 episodes I didn't think were stellar, only 5 at most were really bad. Put bluntly, they deserve another season to see if the show is still up to a level I deem extremely enjoyable.

And even if Season 4 tanks, Katie Cook is kicking as on the comics, so those will serve as my Pony Content. So unless everything goes to hell, I'm good.

Eh, Up to WA (save for OBA), Season 3 was amazing, after that it had a noticeable drop in quality.
But hey, KCaFO was still good, GPP was almost good, and AFR wasn't really offensive.
It's only the Spike episodes that I really didn't like, and OBA.
Who knows, maybe the finale will actually be good, although I have my doubts on the impact that it may have on the rest of the show.

Indeed; First half of the season (except OBA) was great. It was just awesome episode after awesome episode after awesome episode.

But then after WA, it got a little bumpy:

AFR was just "okay".
SAYS is the worst episode of S3.
KCAFO was great.
JFS was just "okay".
GPP was pretty good.

I dunno what happened but I certainly agree that the latter half of S3 has been, on average, quite "meh" compared to the first half.

I have to disagree in a case like this, the finale of a season where a huge change like this is going to happen. If you're that put off by it after watching, to the point that watching future episode might turn out to be tortuous, leaving the show may be a better option than forcing yourself to stay and being negative about everything that happens until those around you hate you.

Look at it this way, Fluttershutter, if the episode does make you upset, you have at least 8 months to make peace with it. Of course, if you can't continue I'd more than understand. Better to leave in peace, then leave in pieces.

Who knows? You may feel differently after nearly 3/4 of a year.

Yeah, had the second half of Season 3 kept with the quality of the first half, Season 3 would have been the best out of the three seasons no problem.

It's probable that I'd still check out the beginning of Season 4 to see if this episode's hypothetical terribleness was contained to this episode like MMDW was (though I didn't think that one was going to have a widespread impact on future episodes like this one).

Oh Beardswirl. You and I both knew that there would come a point where one of us would have our dreams for the show come true, even though the other person wouldn't be able to accept it.

Know that I hold no ill will to your teasings in the past about Twilicorn. You didn't know it was happening for sure back then, so you couldn't have anticipated my reaction.

But, please don't let my gloom dampen your utter joy. This is your moment, my opinion shouldn't matter to you. I don't want it to, because it would only make you enjoy your celebration and ascension to your Twilicorn empire less. Just don't think of me after the episode airs, promise me you won't.

What I find a bit sad is that other fans of different ponies don't see this is as a really good sign. A character achieving a dream and getting a permanent change? That rarely happens in these types of shows. And it opens up so many avenues. We may yet see Wonderbolt Dash. Master Fashion Designer Rarity. Cutie marks on our CMCs flanks. All these things we've hoped for for years, but never really thought would seriously happen in canon.

Well you could take it a step further. Twilight was inspired to study magic after seeing Celestia raise the sun. She displays hero-worship mentality towards Celestia, being her most faithful student. It's pretty obvious that Twilight wants to be like Celestia at least on a subconscious level. So while she's never come out and said "I want to be a Princess!" it's not completley illogical to infer that deep down, she kinda did.

Since it involves writing her own magic, apparently becoming a princess may be the next step of evolution on that road oh god this is becoming like a Pokemon reference.


Anyway, I get the feeling that destiny in the Pony universe is kind. Every pony likes their cutie mark, and I'm sure Twilight would like being a princess.

I don't want such a physical change to happen to any of the characters. Even if I dislike S3 Twilight, I don't want this kind of power shift to happen to any of the characters.


I do appreciate your consideration for the little guy, but you don't have to. I also hope something happens in the episode, some twist, that restores faith in the show, but it just doesn't seem like we have the time in the episode. It seems even the destiny swapping, the part I was excited about, will only exist as a plot device rather than being the plot. I don't think even M. A. Larson can help my gloom, and thinking of me won't have any positive effect on you.

Starswirl the Bearded lived before the discovery of the Elements of Harmony. And the EoH are an integral part of becoming an alicorn, thus he was never able to achieve that level himself.

I'd just like to say that if Starswirl was an alicorn it would make Twilicorn much less harsh.

But, when I said that, I got a near-universal cry of "shut up with your headcanon Starswirl can't be an alicorn because [X, Y, and Z]."

but so far every alicorn has had the title of "princess" and star swirl isn't a prince, (they have certainly never called him one whereas with celestia/luna/cadence, they have all been princesses), hell maybe that's how they decide who gets to be in charge idk.

And that's the problem I think a lot of other fans have. We've seen Twilight get closer to her dream and becoming an actual adult, as we've seen the rest of the cast grow more childish, or be stuck where they are. The only real exception to this is Rainbow Dash, because I don't trust ANYONE to keep Fluttershy's Character Development past her next focus episode.

Until they show us that the other characters will still matter beyond their basest characteristics when episodes like these come up, you'll unfortunately have that nervousness.

It puts things in perspective that no matter how terrible something is it could always be worse. I think that announcement has actually helped with my Twilicorn gloom, replacing it with humans gloom, and, to be honest, even that is being lessened by people making period jokes about it, reminding me that it can always be made fun of to be entertaining a la Star Wars Holiday Special.

These mood swings probably aren't healthy in the slightest, but as long as I'm not depressed or furious I'm okay.

Well the whole staff can move on after FiM bites the dust. Now please don't get me wrong, i'm certainly not saying they don't care about the show/fans ect, they have shown more respect for the fandom and skill in the execution of the show than anyone could have asked of them

But at the same time if FiM ends, everyone involved will have no trouble finding other work, and i feel like if it really does fall to pieces i don't want to hold on til the bitter bitter end and tarnish my good memories of the show by watching it limp to it's grave.

But i wouldn't change a thing, the way the show took the world by storm, the unprecedented rise of the fandom, and all the other happenings that if you told someone it would happen before it happened they would think you'd lost it, the time spent smiling, laughing, crying, and even raging with all of you truly has been a pleasure, and even if this is the end, i don't regret a single moment of it, the show has been awesome, and you guys are awesome, i will always remember you guys fondly, even if i don't show up anymore after seeing this weeks episode, because at this point, after all we have been through together, i consider you all my friends, and friendship...is magic.

After hearing leaked song, something have been bothering me. I have a feeling that synopsis and song lyrics tell us more about up coming episode than it's seems at first glance. I have to write my thought down, before I can calm down, so here I go.

First, my ideas who got who's cutie mark:
Applejack -> dress making
Rarity -> weather
Rainbow Dash -> caring animals
Pinkie Pie -> Sweet Apple Acre
Fluttershy -> "party"

Now, in synopsis it said "The only way she can reverse the spell is by writing her own magic", and in song we hear how everything is turning ok. BUT, for me it doesn't sound like Twilight is using her magic to turn everything fine (like memory spell in The Return of Harmony). And if all they need is Twilight's magic, then what purpose does it make to say "We need your help"?

For me it seems like when their cutie marks and destinies switched, they got jobs they aren't good with, like Applejack making dresses. In song Twilight gathered her friends together in specific order. First is clearly Fluttershy before song started. Next is Rainbow Dash, who had Fluttershy's job. Then Rarity with Rainbow Dash's job. After that Applejack who is trying to make dresses. Last one was Pinkie Pie in farm. In other words, they always helped pony that original job is one a next pony currently have.

My idea is that they don't use just spell casting magic to help everypony, but rather magic of friendship I know, what a shock. It's looks like everything turns out fine every time friends got together and I assume it turned out fine because everypony helped pony in trouble to do her current job. This would go fine with other season 3 episode Larson wrote, Magic Duel. There Twilight learned to use her friends help while using her magic.

But how all of this fit with Twilight becoming alicorn and how they managed to "switches the Cutie Marks and destinies of all her friends"? Didn't Twilight said in Call of the Cutie that not even magic can help fillies to get their cutie mark any faster. One might think you need really powerful magic to do such reality altering magic. Maybe it would be possible if they have the most powerful magic known to ponydom --- Wait a minute! What if for some reason mane 6 used the Elements, and then by accident Twilight "switches the Cutie Marks and destinies of all her friends". After all, I would be interested on the Elements, what you can do with them and what not.

Now the alicorn thing. All I'm going to write here is pure speculation and should threat as such. So far most poster have threated her becoming alicorn as if she's turning to completely different being, getting more power than any other her friends. But maybe we have watched it in wrong way. Why are Celestia and Luna alicorns begin with? I can't remember where I read it, but I remember Faust saying Celestia have horn and wings to represent all pony races in Equestria, earth ponies, pegasus ponies and unicorn ponies. My though is that Twilight turning to alicorn is mostly symbolic, showing that with help of her friends (earth, pegasus and unicorn ponies) she can now achieve any goal. I'm NOT SAYING that she'll become any super-goddess. I'm sure she still need her friends help. Her transform is probably physical mark of her becoming one with her friends, ending one of her story arc. She's not anymore learning to be a good friend, she is now a "True, True Friend". And BEFORE YOU REPLY, I'm not saying this had to happens. I still think they could and probably should kept Twilight unicorn and than alicorn Twilight is Hasbro mandate, and this is just my idea of how this transformation can be justified in story lines and reasons.

Well, that mostly does make sense; the one flaw I noticed was, we don't really see Celestia and Luna with friends due to their age.

"It was the magic of friendship" does help explain why Starswirl isn't an alicorn as many people say.

Sorry, I didn't mean to bring you down again with that image if I did. The image itself was just asking for that caption with the way Twilight was posing. It looked so obnoxiously smug to me.

Also, that might have been the wrong thing to name the image. I wasn't actually raging, it was supposed to be for humor. I did do a double take at the image though, for the reasons above.

sethisto said there are fan shoutouts that had been missing from the rest of the season, that sounds like it have to be dərpy, and an obvious enough appearacne he saw it in one viewing without pauseing or anything.

i stand by that season 3 was being produced during the whole "yamino" fiasco and they left her out because of that, once the fiasco died down and Dərpy was decided to be cool, they started adding her again, perhaps the finale was just made late enough that dərpy could be added again.

Why's Vinyl look so odd in that one scene? Her snout and face just.....doesn't look right.

Also, return of Pinkamina, out of the blue? Eh? If she's all sad and annoyed now...why didn't she go all Pinkamina for TMPP?

And cutie marks confirmed for being in command of what the ponies do? They can't say "Fuck my cutie mark I'm doing something else" ? Wat?

Repost from /mlp/:

This + the leak of the song = 6.38 minutes.

Average clip before the intro song is about 1.10 minutes.

Let's say... 1 minute for Twilight to talk to Rarity about this whole shit.

Then let's say 2 minutes between this song and twilight figuring out the solution and triggering the other leaked song.

Estimated 10.48 minutes on the cutie mark switcheroo plot.

That leaves roughly 11 minutes to introduce and resolve the alicorn business.

How in the actual fuck are they going to pull this off?
>> No. 2518242
Well, I suppose it's because she no longer has any time for partying and making others laugh, even though she wants to do so.

As for the whole cutie mark thing, I suppose it's because cutie marks are generally infallible, if you ever question your purpose in life, you could just look at it and remember your place in society.
In other words, it's a pony thing, Cutie Marks telling you what your purpose is is common pony sense, you have got to obey it even if you don't like what you do, I mean, it's your cutie mark, right? It wouldn't lie to you, right?
They just can't process the thought of doing something other than following their cutie mark, it's a thing from their society, and it works 100% of the time when there is no magical interference.
I'm sure ponies would have a lot of confusion regarding several things about our society.

>And cutie marks confirmed for being in command of what the ponies do? They can't say "Fuck my cutie mark I'm doing something else" ? Wat?
Wat? I came to different conclusion. Clearly their current cutie marks aren't indicating their true talents. They are probably just lived so long assuming you have to do what your cutie mark indicate that they aren't willing to consider possibility of doing something else. None of them seems like "destined" to do well on their jobs.

I want to believe this is about "Screw destine, I'm going to do what I want to do!". In other words: Even if I have some destine, it is I who decide to follow it or not to.

This song does raise a question, of when their cutie mark got mixed? Synopsis says "Twilight accidentally casts a spell that switches the Cutie Marks and destinies of all her friends", so should Twilight know this right away after she casted her spell?

That's actually a nice hypothesis. Celestia tells her she going to be princess and that it's her destiny.

The 3 1/2 minute one was "meh".

This new one was decent.

Seeing as it's going to be a musical episode with like 20 fuckin songs, I'm sure the rest will be pretty decent as well.

And even then, I tend to like songs more after listening to them multiple times. When Smile Smile Smile was first leaked, I thought it was "decent". Now it's one of my favorite pony songs.

She's back to Pinkamena probably because that's the way it is. She didn't get AJ's cutie mark as a result of a Sonic Rainboom, so she never got her hair poofed up. Essentially, time has changed

Also, my belief is that they kind of don't have control over what they do. It's not that their cutie marks now look like their friend's, it's that they actually have their friend's cutie mark, and that means a part of their friend has become a part of them. The problem is that it's like putting a cube in a round hole, and causes a dissonance between what they feel inclined to do (since how could they have gotten those cutie marks if they never did anything associated with it) and what they can do (since the cutie mark doesn't represent their actual talent).

I really quite like this song. I'm super excited that Pinkie Pie is also trying to sing in a southern accent like AJ. That's a cute addition.

It is interesting how cutie marks are something one simply doesn't dispute. It certainly does present a dilemma; what happens when somepony genuinely finds themselves unfit for their destiny, as defined by their cutie mark? All of the instances of cutie mark acquisition we've seen are of ponies whose personalities and desires mesh with their special talent, but what happens when the moment is not so serendipitous?

I'm sure Hasbro wanted it, ordered DHX to carry it out, and Meghan and Jayson were 100% prepared and capable to carry out such a drastic change in the storyline, knowing full well that there could be an S4, even though they were writing S3 in a way that closed as many of the characters arcs as they could, but left them open ended enough for future developments.
>> No. 2518315
and I don't see why people whine about Hasbro anyways. The show exists because hasbro wanted to sell toys. I don't hear any complaining about the reason the show exists. And why is that exactly? It's because the mandate to create a show to sell toys has been executed brilliantly, just like the mandate to introduce Cadence and TCE was executed brilliantly. Alicorn Twi will be no different, nor will Equestria Girls. Everything this show does is to sell toys, and it's hypocritical to pick and choose which things people want to complain about, just because it doesn't sit well with the headcanon they have about their phantasmal significant other, or their too emotionally fragile to cope with change.

Yes, I'm anxious about the finale as well. I can't believe they're actually making this drastic change to that adorkable little purple unicorn we've come to know and love, but I feel lucky to be alive right now and apart of this fanbase. We're experiencing exiting times, and a year from now when we're half way through S4, we'll look back at all the panicking and laugh, and promise to never do that again, or atleast until the next big change.

I have to agree. Hasbro contracted with the creators of the show to produce content to promote their toy line. The people on the creative team are professionals who understand who they work for and how to deliver for them. The fact that a group of people outside the target audience latched onto the show is simply a bonus for the creative team as it gives them a more sophisticated audience to interact with.
For Hasbro we are probably something of a risk given the nature of a lot of the fan generated content and it's accessibility on the Internet. Frankly we should be thankful they're not calling us pedophiles like so much of the rest of the world is.

Look at this Shadowbolt Rainbow Dash made by Hasbro the stitching, her hair this toy is made to look close to the show as they can, Hasbro want us to stay fans and to buy their stuff. Why do they make a Steven Magnet and manticore toys if its just princesses that sell.

This episode, the spin off & season four may just the most inportant time in the fan base. Some will go as MLP is no longer for them, some will stay happy with what will happen and some will join. But please do not harden your hearts to them. All I ask no I beg please do not forget love and tolerance for that, like Twilight in episode one this is our real test.

I don't think it's fair to say she has a "deep attraction" to Twilight, only that she relates the most to her. How much she relates and how that colors to her view is entirely up in the air.

>Established early on that she has a huge potential

Those seem to contradict each other in regards to your conclusion. Because if Twilight had huge potential as a unicorn, wouldn't that mean that she would able to just...get more powerful as a unicorn? It seems to me like it would naturally lead to "But you are just an ordinary unicorn, how are you this powerful without wings?"

Unless you are suggesting that horns and wings come from great power, instead of the more implied great power comes from horns and wings.

There's the whole thing with her name, at least for me.

Celestia controls the sun and governs the day, Luna controls the moon and governs the night, the word Twilight refers to the time in between. I've always thought that was significant somehow, since she's Celestia's protege and all. If it was some random unicorn's name I wouldn't give it much thought, but after Cutie Mark Chronicles it strengthened the idea that she was heading places. I've heard people say that ideas like this are "baby's first fanfic" ideas because they are so simple, such as the idea of twilight becoming an alicorn itself, but remember, this is a kids show, sometimes the simple ideas are closer to the truth than you think.

Just my two bits, can't wait for tomorrow.

Really? With all due respect, I think the liars are the ones who have RETROACTIVELY imposed this path onto the Twilight's destiny, after we learned it was going to happen. Could it have happened, yes? Was it the ABSOULTELY ONLY PATH SHE COULD GO?!? Absolutely not.

I guess I just don't subscribe to the idea that the episode needs to be perfectly good to not be complete and utter garbage that will rip the fandom asunder. That's generally what happened with BNE, it wasn't the greatest episode, and some people were disappointed in it, but overall it was still a good episode.

Besides, we already know Twilight becomes an alicorn princess, so how is it going to be any worse after the fact?

ok, so I would like to point out that he gave a meh review to A Canterlot Wedding which was odd as its a love it or hate it episode usually.

So his viewpoint is not necessarily indicative of the fandom's reaction at all.

He also suppossedly only watches the DVDs which means some stuff that is semi important (Seth said continuity was important to this episode) went over his head.

We really wont know until it happens, and you can put me into the scared but hopeful group

Indeed, we can't make judgments until we see the episodes.Nor can we make assumptions about the quality until the next season.

>> No. 2518428

AS TGSB said, best to keep in mind that this guy is also the one that reviewed ACW before it aired, and found it kind of meh, even disappointing in some regards. He didn't trash it, but treated it much the same way as he did this episode, actually slightly worse in some ways. Maybe you are agree with that dislike of ACW, maybe not.
Point is, don't think his opinions are necessarily going to be your own. Maybe you'll actually like more songs than he does. Maybe you'll dislike certain plot points more than him. He did say it felt rushed in the first two acts, which I'll be honest, I'd rather have rushed a bit than completely rushing the ending act. He also said not every song wowed him, but when there's seven, and some are just light mod setters like the opening one released today, I kind of think that's a given. Maybe you'll feel far more emotionally attached to what's happening than he will because his only experience with the show is from the occasional review of the multiple episode DVDs that come out. I mean he doesn't even really get the whole freakout over the alicorn business, and likely any community nods, continuity events, etc sailed right over his head.

So yeah, if this review didn't get you confident, just understand that the only one to really determine how much you like it is yourself.

I don't think so... Seems like the writers were never sure if they'd have a fourth season. It explains why S3 tied up so many loose ends. WA could have been a fitting conclusion to Dash's dreams. AFR showed us that the AJ's parents are indeed dead. Trixie and Discord returned and were redeemed. Scootaloo got her own ep and finally has the approval of Dash she's been so desperately seeking since S1. It makes sense that they would end the series with Twilight becoming an alicorn. But they got picked up for a fourth season. So now they can go further with Twilight's story.

At least, that's what I think happened.

>> No. 2518483
Considering the two parters are more adventurous and how the story comes about, it'd be hard to think of a scenario for any one of the mane six to get a focus two parter.

Best I could probably come up with would be one starring Rainbow Dash, and the premise would be more focused on some big sporting event she'd participate in, like the Equestrian Games, though it would be interrupted by some big event like ACW was with the changeling invasion.

I could definitely see a mane six minus Twilight one, where they have to save her from the villain like a Saving Private Ryan kind of deal.

It is one of the better war movies out there.I kinda like Black Hawk down better,it avoids treating war as fought by a collection of hard cases with a few fresh faces.

I mean Saving Private Ryan is great and all but it tries hard to portray war as gritty and serious,instead of the real thing which has a tendency to veer towards absurdity and boredom.

Question: Do we know if the plot is that Twilight changes their cutie marks in the present day, and that they somehow were forced to change their whole lives because of it, or that she changed which cutie marks they got in their childhood, creating an alternate history in which they were mislead by their cutie marks?

Recently, I've been sleeping in and watching the episodes on Youtube, but I think I'd like to see the reaction to this one ASAP. I'd prefer not to sleep through the potential pony apocalypse.

D, though at least it wasn't the necronomicon, or some diary with a magic spell in it.

Never read anything you can't understand out loud, especially while knowingly channeling magic!!!

Hey guys I found this tape recorder next to this creepy book and I played it. Nothing bad will happen right?

It was Starswirl's spell book, if there's a pony equivalent of the Necronomicon of Abdul Alhazred I would think it was that.

Also my choice is obviously A,B,D.

Since we learned about Twicorn I have had stomachache (actual physical pain) for suspension. I'm sure is my ready, but what ever finale gives us, I can't wait it to be over so I can relax.

F*ck it. We've got less than 2 and a half hours before this begins, so let's do this. I just hope I don't view my 2nd Favorite Pony in the same eye I view Hal Jordan or Barry Allen after all of this is over.

Coincidentally, I've been watching Princess Tutu around this same time, with only a few episodes left. Let's see if I can finish it before this episode airs.

So guys. 20 bucks say they never once say the word "Alicorn" in the episode. Any takers?
>> No. 2518589
I agree. Just because they called something in the show "alicorn" doesn't mean they'll relate it to the princesses. We all know it's used by the staff, although it's the wrong term anyway, but I really hope it stays out of the episode.

I don't think they'll say alicorn at all. Princess on the other hand...
