S4 Episode 24 - Equestria Games

Post by OneMoreDaySK on Sun May 04, 2014 2:22 pm

Yay! Another Spike episode. And I really liked it. Not too much Pinkie acting crazy this episode, which I like and can excuse because of the Game hype. Glad to see that they can't always get #1. Amused that apparently the princesses are also disabled. Antimagic is apparently canon. Though kinda silly if you think about it. No magic makes that a prime target for a villain to go and nab them. I guess security is beefed up though, with more modern looking pony guards as opposed to the ceremonial ones. Really glad to see that the story didn't snowball into coddling Spike by avoiding telling him the truth. Though they made it really apparent that it wasn't going to work when Spike somehow thought he had pyrokinesis. Definitely props to the writers for making that anthem the most awkward thing ever. Saw Derpy; am happy. Laughed when she went mute through the entrance. Also liked that Griffons placed.

Heard some grumbling about the POV shift to Spike-centered as opposed to Game-centered. Not sure how they would make it an episode like that without being blatantly called out for pandering, as the only course we would see would be Dash and Fluttershy's event. And besides, if you really wanted to watch sports, just go watch the Olympics.

I thought it was interesting that Shining Armor didn't have a throne next to his wife. He attended to the ceremonies, sure, but even when he wasn't announcing events, he didn't sit next to her.
Plus, he still wore his captain of the royal guard armor. I guess that's still his job.

Sorta like a president and first lady, I suppose. She's the princess/queen, but that doesn't mean he's really a prince/king in anything but name.

Sitting on a throne might have been an option for him, but having him out and about I would think is more to his character.

Also nice to see the delegates from other areas, like the Saddle Arabians, and even Blueblood.
That brings me to a question. Is Blueblood truly a jerk, or was the Gala just a one time thing? I kinda get bored of fics that depict him as entirely jerk, sometimes borderline evil, but he seems to be just fine in the other episodes he appears in.

No, I'm pretty sure Shining Armor being in his captain armor means he's still captain.
I think only princesses can rule.

I love that there were exactly four thrones. I want nothing more than for Hasbro to mandate another princess be created. Maybe a baby princess or something similarly absurd. I want another universe-breaking retcon :D

*waits for Princess Skyla to somehow appear in Canon Universe*
That would be hilarious if they had a fifth throne setup, but no explanation whatsoever.

If you wanted to stay anywhere near socially acceptable, you should have taken a left turn about three layers of WTF back.

I left the room.
I can never stand those kinds of scenes.

Alouette had to stop. Skipped it with headphones off, but paused, felt guilty, then jumped back to the song start and cringed the whole way through.
