Well, it's that time again! Here goes nothing

 

Wet... Manes?

 

She doesn't want to go back to the castle because it doesn't feel like home. Or something along those lines

 

lol

 

Wait... Was the castle in the intro last time?

 

Fluffle Puff Angel

 

lol Angel

 

If I knew people who ate that loud, heads would roll

 

Swarm of the Century throwback?

 

I don't like the castle either, Twilight

 

Incoming song

 

LOL Spike

 

Rainbow's voice is so.. AUGH

 

Seriously, it doesn't fit the music at all. So off-key

 

Actually, none of the vocals fit the music at all

 

It's like the Art of the Dress redux no one wanted

 

Okay, that "Let's all work togeeetheeerrr" does not go with this song at all

 

lol Spike

 

huehuehue

 

I still think it's really stupid that they destroyed the library

 

lol Spike x2

 

Well, there's a library in the castle anyways

 

Shut up, Pinkie

 

Yeah, those were good times Rainbow

 

Good times too, Rarity

 

He needs his basket

 

Aaaaand this is the redux no one wanted of a redux no one wanted

 

So now there's a tree hanging from the ceiling? Genius...

 

Okay.. Not as bad as last week's episode, but not an improvement. I'd give this one a 4.9/10

I wanted that redux. Art of the Dress is one of the show's best songs so there's nothing wrong with trying to invoke it. And while this one had... issues... with the tempo and the lyrics I still enjoyed it, especially since it was an ensemble.

 

Actually I loved the whole episode overall. Like a lot. All the characters got screentime and interaction with eachother, there was a clear goal with conflict and resolution all tied up neatly with a lesson, and it was humorous throughout with a touching end. Not sure you could ask for more. I suppose you could make the argument that, by now, Twi's friends should know what she wants in her castle...but I wouldn't put anything past the egos of Rainbow Dash and Rarity, or the eccentricities of Pinkie. Even Applejack, at times, seems oblivious to how others don't share her appreciation for more rustic styles.

 

And it was genious indeed to integrate the old library with the new castle. It makes sense with Twilight's character that she would be attached to Golden Oaks and feel uncomfortable in a castle given how humble she is relative to her rank. And she loves her friends. Turning the roots into a chandelier both fits what the character would appreciate and has meaningful symbology. And seriously, a tree root chandelier? That sounds awesome.

 

The show could have just as easily ignored the old library- after all that's probably not the toy that's trying to be sold. But it was something that would make sense to address in-story, and I think they nailed it.

 

Also, yes, the castle was in the intro last time.

 

My only qualm is that doesn't this episode present a continuity issue? I thought the castle was plopped right on top of the old library?

I'm pretty sure the castle has always been in a different place (almost on the edge of town, as opposed to near the middle of Ponyville).

 

Anyway, I wasn't that fussed about this episode for the most part, but the resolution still tugged at my heartstrings. I've seen a lot of people mention that this felt a lot like a Season 1 episode, and I'd agree that it did—for better and for worse.

After rewatching the S.4 finale, yeah you're right. Not sure where I got that idea.

I wouldn't mind a redux either. What I meant was we got the redux we didn't want/it was bad, instead of one we'd like. *shrugs*
