Did anyone else think that Starlight was 100000x more op'd than when the mane 6 first encountered her? It's like she's been secretly training during whole season just to exact her vengeance. I'd even go so far as to say that she surpasses unicorn Twilight's magical abilities since her alicorn form alone wasn't enough to take her down. Starlight was simply too powerful and cunning for Twi; I don't think that's ever happened before. I mean c'mon, Starlight has a handle on freakin cloudwalking spells AND self-levitation flight.
Otherwise, the finale was surprisingly dark.
I actually agree, but I think it was a good thing.
imo, for a while now, the finales have all been solved by queuing the Power of Friendship trope; and although the intent behind this may be good, for me it felt somewhat cheap and alienating in many ways. Even last season's epic finale, as awesome as it was, it was disappointing to me when it was solved by simply invoking the power of friendship.
With this, Twi had to actually reason with her enemy, when before she could just blast though them with what the show, and everything that was simply handed to her. unlike previous finales, it didn't feel like she had all the problems solved before the fight began, she actually had to adapt; this made her very likable, and interesting as a character to me; when before I found her pretentious and arrogant.
In short, this episode felt like they where showing us why something was good rather then just telling us; a quality I liked. I enjoyed this finale.

"MLP The Deleted Scenes" it's quite funny
I watched it. Some good stuff.
I could just imagine what kind of crazy reaction people would have to those kissing scenes if there where part of an actual show; especially fights between sjw/Tumblerinas and people like those on Fox News.
