Castle Mane-ia thoughts · 12:36am
So I just saw today's yesterday's wait it was leaked wasn't it THIS WEEK'S episode, and so like with the two parter I wanted to share some of my thoughts. I held out in watching it until today, and I'm really pleased that it was actually worth the wait. I enjoyed so much about the episode. It was very interesting to see so much more of that grand old castle introduced to us back in the original two parter. The characterisation of everypony was again back to its best, from Pinkie being Pinkie in a very-much-not obnoxious way to Fluttershy being the right kind of wimpy once more (and Rarity not letting the dirt get to her like so many authors of fan ficiton think is in-character), and all that significantly helped me not hate the ending and its 'twist' - which I could see coming from a mile away (though I doubt I'm the only person) - or the writer and character responsible for it, despite my fears early on. I'm taking that as a good sign that the writers have really worked on developing their episodes, something I hope to see continue through the rest of the season.
Oh, and I have to comment again on how much I love season 4's lighting effects! Nice to see it wasn't just reserved for the two parter.
Oh, and hey look! It's December now, fancy that
