I'm probably the only person in the Brony fandom who is scratching their head to this episode arch. Don't get me wrong, there's pleanty of stuff that I like, these two for example. I was half expecting them to be terrible, but I realize if there's one thing this show never fails at, it's writing enjoyable characters. However, the majority of the storyline, I can do without. Avoiding too many spoilers, I'll say this: There's only so much you can pull out of left field and expect me to sit here and accept it, now matter cute a song you wrote to establish it.
But I'm sure someone will say "Well it's just a kid's show..." So I guess I won't dwell on it too much.
Onward to season 3!
