I like how everyone is completely useless.
The Wonderbolts are useless, the royal guards are useless, Celestia is useless, Luna is useless (or at least too lazy to show her face for more than 5 seconds), even the Doctor is useless (maybe he left his sonic screwdriver in the TARDIS or something??) and that's just characters who were present during the episode. Everyone in Ponyville is useless too with the possible exception of Big Macintosh, since he is less "a stallion" and more "50 stallions condensed into the shape of one".
If it wasn't for the mane 6, nothing would ever get done. EVER.
Seriously, why did Celestia go all like "hurr durr imma poke you with mah horn"? She is THE SUN GODDESS; She can call down NUCLEAR FUSION DEATH RAYS with but a single thought! Even barring that, she's still an obscenely powerful spellcaster! Why would she EVER engage in melee combat!? DAMMIT HASBRO YOU HAD A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR CELESTIA TO BE A TOTAL BADASS AND YOU BLEW IT.
At least it was kind of neat that a villain
was juiced up with the power of love for once, although I was kind of hoping Celestia would kick her ass and THEN she'd pull a dirty trick that ruins everything. Unfortunately, Celestia is, of course, useless
. (Twilight Sparkle could totally have taken on
Queen Slug-For-A-Butt Bitchy McShapeshifter Original the Character(DONOTSTEAL) A SPY!
Whatever-the-hell-her-name-is in a straight fight because she is THE
LEGENDARY SUPER SAIYAN
embodiment of magic itself
Also I was kind of hoping that at the scene where they've just beaten up their doppelgangers and made it to the hall with the elements of harmony and they're suddenly surrounded by a million billion skillion changelings, Luna would finally get off her ass and swoop down out of nowhere and save the day. But noooo she only shows up for approximately 8 seconds total across THE ENTIRE SERIES, barring the first episode and the Nightmare Night episode. They're trolling us, I just know it. "HAY GUIZ DID I MISS ANYTHING LOL", indeed.
Also also I was kind of hoping Discord had something to do with it. His statue could've at least made a cameo appearance. :I
ALSO also also, how the hell do the CMC keep getting to Canterlot? Are they stowing away on the train? Maybe in that little upper compartment that Derpy hides in during the intro? Rarity's giant hat? Maybe in Pinkie Pie's hair?
ALSO!!!!! i wanted to see the bachelor party
one more also: LOOKS LIKE TEAM CHANGELING'S BLASTING OFF AGAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN
