9:12am YAY! Twilight found the Elements of Harmony!

Too bad her friends are not in any shape to help her use them.

Let's see what happens next!

:D:D:D

"Congratulations, Spike. You're the new Rainbow Dash."

This line made me laugh. I love you Twilight...

9:19am Twilight reading her own letters has helped her figure it out!

But will seh be able to rally her friends together in time?

Whoa! Discord is way too powerful for Equestria.

We'll see if I'm right about this shortly.

Felt a bit fast-paced, but the amount of time they had (22 minutes) is really restrictive.

Star Wars Episode IV style ending made me go :kissy: .

Discord was somewhat disappointingly easily defeated. Overconfidence is the greatest enemy.

wow, no Luna and no CMCs. That came unexpected.

I loved the Alice in Wonderland vibe Discord's Ponyville radiated.

Probably best Star Wars reference ever.

Waiting for the rest of season 2 will be SO! VERY! HARD!

Discord turned back to stone and Harmony restored. The ending ot be expected, I suppose.

That was an awesome conclusion though. Discord was awesome again. I think Twilight had the best lines though. Of course nothing was better than Rarity's reaction to the rock. "Let's never speak of this again..." :lol:

That was fun. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the third episode of Season 2. This season opener has me pumped.

Yeah, come to think of it, no CMC's is disappointing.

Then again, squeezing them in would have made the entire thing even more rushed.

Let me sum up this, and the previous episode, with one sentence.

This should of been a movie.

This isn't me saying it was so good I need more. Fact is a lot of the episode was rushed. Friendship Restored? Rushed. Discord Battle? Rushed. Ending? Rushed. This episode had a lot of good moments, and Discord is as great as ever; but it was matched by numerous moments where solutions seem to come too fast or the scene ends before you know it.

So yeah; great episode and Discord is as great as ever. Should have been made into a feature length movie. Would have fit with the Star Wars reference at the end.

Well then. It was.... good. Some really good moments. Ending was... blah. Highlights from my notes:

Rarity knows Kunf Fu! Awesome!

Back in Ponyville? So much for the Everfree forest theories.

Well, looks like Twilight is the butt monkey this episode.

The princesses must be really mad about the whole 60 second day/night thing.

And they get even greyer.

The rock is called Tom XD

Aha! They can see the grey. It's not just for the audience.

The elements were in the book? Seriously?

"Big crown thingy" Oh Twilight XD

New Rainbow Dash! I love it :D

And the elements don't work. Surprise.

"Discord rules, Celestia drools"

"Make it stop!" Oh, poor Spike. :-( And I saw a fanart that was the same thing as this o_o

Oh Gods, Granny and Big Mac ._.

Unicorn mind meld!

"I had the most terrible dream" Don't tell her the truth! Aj, I'm looking at you!

And then she gets genuinely mad at Discord. Fluttershy is best pony.

And he's back to stone! Good riddence! Not put that statue somewhere safe this time!

Ugh, stupid Star Warsy ending. Well, at least we know that they're famous now.

So, I enjoyed it, but it still felt... I dunno... off in places. The ending felt rushed. Discord should have been smart enough to notice that they were no longer under his spell. Instead he just sits there like a melon while the elements do their thing.

Best part: "Congratulations! You're the new Rainbow Dash!"

Worst part: Discord is actually kind of a lame villain. Oh well.

EDIT: Oh, and no song this episode? What a gyp!

I LIKE the ballet dancing buffalo and 'puppy dog' Big MacIntosh!

And what can beat a dancing Granny Smith! Guess that old hip of hers is working fine!

:D:D:D

It is 6:30am for me... Been up since 2am waiting for the new episode while holding my spot at the Livestream. It was well worth it.

Star Wars ending? - Incredibly Epic!

Rainbow Dash chase scene? - 20% more epic!

Big Mac digging while Granny Smith tap danced? - Hilarious!

Spike being made temporary Rainbow Dash + his reaction? - I had tears from laughing.

Whole library scene? - Awesome.

Fluttershy as Cruelshy? - I was torn between love and hate. She's Fluttershy...

Would write a whole bunch more on this but I'm fried. I needs sleep :sleep:

If these first two episodes are any indication, I can't wait for the rest of the season. Definitely buying it on iTunes this upcoming Friday. Kind of sucks though that we have to go a whole two weeks before the next episode.

Discord really DOES have a 'flighty' mind. And why not?

HE'S THE SPIRIT OF CHAOS!!!

Even has a brain loaded with chaos too!

This is PERFECT!!!

And all THAT made Twilight as crazy as Discord!!!

Excellent work, Lauren Faust!!!

I can't believe they killed off Discord!

Well, as killed off as they could make him. Still kind of disappointing, even if it was expected. He was hilarious! I was hoping, nay, praying, that they could somehow find a way to keep him, but I guess I'll just have to get over it.

I cried tears of joy when Fluttershy came back to her senses. Her being cruel was killing me inside; it just wasn't right.

My only disappointment with Discord was that he didn't strike a pose as he was getting petrified.

I guess he really didn't think they could summon the Rainbow of Light.
