1Twilight Season 4 Episodes 1 & 2: Reactions and Discussion
That was certainly a way to start off the new season, now wasn't it? Confused
So let's get to it: what did you guys think about the pilot?

Oh My God!
These were awesome! I loved flashbacks! And Celestia vs Nightmare Moon part was awesome!
The animation is great, and it keeps getting better. Discord was there(yay).
All in all, it's a good start. 8.7/10

This level of reasoning is possible for TerriccotaPie!

I liked it, it was a good start to kick off the new season. Not overly fond of the focus on Twilight, but with a title like "Princess Twilight Sparkle" I can't really complain. I hope they got it out of their system in these episodes Confused

The flashbacks were definitely the highlights of the episode. Good stuff. Really makes me wish for a Celestia episode.

Oh! I almost forgot!
This serves two purpose - 1) Seeing if I'm the only one who feels this way 2) attacking people with two cents: I didn't really appreciate Twilight being sent off by everyone else because "You are useless here but Equestria needs a princess because Cadance doesn't qualify and we will not need your knowledge of Mr. tree-we-know-nothing-about in any way."
At first I thought the Everfree Forest had done something funky when they semi-separated during the crocodile attack for the pones to have acted that way but... no Sad R

I think they did it just to make the finale stronger- the whole idea was to make them re-learn the same lesson(friendship is magic), because many fans were afraid Twilight will lose her friends since she is princess alicorn and living in Canterlot now.

Cadence lives in the Crystal Empire, which is only part of Equestria when it suites the writers. For head cannon, I'd imagine the train ride from the Empire to Canterlot would take several days, so Cadence couldn't have been a factor in any way.

Anyway, I'd give this season premier a solid 10/10. I'm debating whether I like it better than the season 2 premier, which is one of my favorite episodes. I was worried that they would only further ruin Discord's character by bringing him back for another episode, but I ended up loving what they did with him.

I loved the historical flashbacks, as well as the mentions to how things were back in the day (season 1) and how nothing is going to change.

Most importantly, I think the conflicts in this episode were unexpectedly deep, even for a show where we kind of expect semi-deep concepts. Twilight's qualms about taking on the role of leader were handled well, and I think it is perfectly valid for her friends to want her to go home.

I also love the set up for what is probably going to be a season long story, which should be great.

Oh and the better animation, flashes, art, whatever. That was pretty good too.

We also got some Applejack being her badass self, so I'll give it an 11/10 for that. Great start to what should be an amazing season!

Yeah, Applejack was really good in this one. I like those leader qualities that she has. She's a badass, plain and simple Heart
