Such a perfect two-parter!
- Great humor right off the bat, with several classic Pinkie Pie moments.
- So much intrigue, even when it seemed obvious it would be something of Discord's doing, it just didn't seem chaotic enough to really be his work.
- Character development in Discord. I had always assumed that he was too full of himself to really consider others a threat, we can that he can, in fact, plan like a magnificent bastard!
- Weird to see Discord's attitude towards monarchism, seeing as how he is basically a God.
- Mystery ending!
Most of all - they responded to one of the most common Brony gripes - and even have Discord himself address it - the Elements of Harmony aren't going to be the go-to to magic away any problems now.
Just amazing. Beyond amazing. Anyone who had any doubts about S4 needs a cupcake in their eye!
