[15:00] <AlicornPriest> The breezies are “coming through? I thought she was leaving to see them?
[15:00] <@Sylocat> Pinkie has a prehensile tail
[15:00] <totient> prehensile tails ftw?
[15:00] <@Sylocat> Okay, I can’t wait to see what these things look like
[15:01] <@Sylocat> Pinkie, didn’t you learn from the band thing?
[15:01] <totient> “Softer!”  “Yay!”
[15:01] <Froborr> I love this, it’s the inversion of that cold open with RD and Fluttershy.
[15:01] <@Sylocat> Fluttershy knows how to give a cheer quietly
[15:01] <Froborr> Exactly, totient!
[15:01] <AlicornPriest> Just what I was thinking
[15:01] <@Sylocat> HAHAH
[15:01] <@Sylocat> Yay
[15:01] <Froborr> LOL
[15:01] <Froborr> Okay, I laughed hard enough at that to turn into hacking coughs.
[15:01] <Froborr> I have a good feeling about this ep.
[15:02] <@Sylocat> Sombrero pony!
[15:02] <AlicornPriest> A mariachi band? Okay.
[15:02] <Froborr> Pony mariachi!
[15:02] <@Sylocat> Ooh, Natasha Levinger is back
[15:02] <Froborr> Yep.
[15:02] <mere_oblivion> @ Froborr: Though i’m a bit terrified as to how un-“adorable” they might turn out to be.
[15:02] <AlicornPriest> So much science!
[15:02] <@Sylocat> They’re bees!
[15:03] <@Sylocat> Wait, a portal to their home?
[15:03] <Froborr> Are they like Perfectly Normal Beasts?
[15:03] <@Sylocat> They’re from the mirror?
[15:03] <@Sylocat> Uh, Rarity…
[15:03] <AlicornPriest> How does that thing shine like that?
[15:04] <Froborr> lol
[15:04] <Froborr> Okay, so far this is the funniest episode this season.
[15:04] <@Sylocat> Yikes, you don’t want to know that that reminds me of WHAT THE HECK ARE THOSE?
[15:04] <Froborr> They’re like little butterfly fairy things?
[15:05] <totient> Spike noooo
[15:05] <@Sylocat> Pinkie attempting to stop talking?
[15:05] <Froborr> Spike is going to fuck everything up, isn’t he?
[15:05] <totient> Eeyup
[15:05] <@Sylocat> Well… I don’t think even Spike could have predicted that a stray leaf would do that
[15:06] <@Sylocat> What language is that?
[15:06] <Froborr> Are… are they talking in Swedish Chef talk?
[15:06] <mere_oblivion> Breezyspeak! Sounds like Russian with a Scottish accent.
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Ooh, are those Breezy curse words?
[15:06] <Froborr> It’s like a cross between the Swedish Chef and a duck…
[15:06] <@Sylocat> It’s like when the Firefly cast speaks Chinese
[15:06] <Froborr> I think they’re speaking Simlish.
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Except vampire fruit bats
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Ouch
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Burn
[15:07] <Froborr> Wow, it’s like Canadian Scottish Swedish.
[15:07] <Froborr> The accent, I mean.
[15:07] <totient> poor little guy
[15:07] <@Sylocat> It certainly could. How could they have kept every stray leaf on the trees?
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Wait, what kinds of bird are those?
[15:08] <@Sylocat> D’awwwwww
[15:08] <Froborr> They looked like cardinals maybe?
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Who designed these things?
[15:08] <Froborr> They’re hideously adorable!
[15:08] <@Sylocat> That could have been bad
[15:08] <Froborr> …I want to see them get in a fight with parasprites.
[15:08] <AlicornPriest> Is this what they looked like in G3?
[15:09] <@Sylocat> G3? These things are from previous-gens?
[15:09] <@Sylocat> Ah, they ARE curse words
[15:09] <AlicornPriest> Sort of.
[15:09] <Froborr> Wow, that really IS cursing.
[15:09] <@Sylocat> Huh… what’s this a metaphor for?
[15:10] <AlicornPriest> Being careful about what you say around other cultures?
[15:11] <@Sylocat> So, Fluttershy gets her key to the box when she teaches that Breezy to stop being such a colossal jerk?
[15:11] <Froborr> I’m guessing so, yeah.
[15:11] <@Sylocat> Wait, they’re playing hooky?
[15:11] <mere_oblivion> Or learns not to fall for kids pretending to have colds?
[15:11] <@Sylocat> What are they up to?
[15:12] <@Sylocat> Oh don’t tell me they’re doing this just to mess with that asshat?
[15:12] <Froborr> I think they’re scared to go home for some reason.
[15:12] <@Sylocat> Hmm, who does Flitter’s voice? Sounds familiar
[15:12] <Froborr> Or they just really hate Asshat Breeze.
[15:12] <@Sylocat> HAHAHAH… musical Breezies
[15:12] <AlicornPriest> It sounds a little like Spike.
[15:12] <Froborr> OMG TINY SAXOPHONE
[15:13] <@Sylocat> “Seabreeze?” That’s the evil one’s name?
[15:13] <Froborr> Yeah.
[15:13] <mere_oblivion> No sax on the day of a flight.
[15:13] <Froborr> *groan*
[15:13] <AlicornPriest> Also, this can’t be the key episode because it’s not about Fluttershy choosing true kindness over her job over a job advancement for raising animals.
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Oh, you’re horrible
[15:13] <@Sylocat> (that’s from Police Squad)
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Whoa… Seabreeze is in trouble
[15:14] <AlicornPriest> Ooh, antenna lights.
[15:14] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[15:14] <Froborr> I am LOVING the perilous world of Breezie scale.
[15:14] <@Sylocat> Bees are bad
[15:14] <@Sylocat> AAARRRGGGHHH
[15:14] <Froborr> NO NOT THE BEES
[15:14] <@Sylocat> I hate bees!
[15:14] <Froborr> Alternatively, “Bees. My God.”
[15:14] <@Sylocat> HAHAHAH
[15:14] <totient> flutterbee best bee
[15:14] <Froborr> Heheh, “bee kind.”
[15:15] <Froborr> Holy shit, Fluttershy.
[15:15] <@Sylocat> The pacing on this episode is weird
[15:15] <@Sylocat> Ooh, she’s mean because she’s insecure
[15:16] <@Sylocat> Yep, it’s the key episode
[15:16] <AlicornPriest> Aww… that’s the message? I was hoping for them to focus on the “immediate versus long-term rewards.”
[15:16] <Froborr> Ah, there it is.
[15:16] <AlicornPriest> Shows what I know. >_<
[15:16] <@Sylocat> Diversity of tones, that’s a good lesson
[15:17] <Froborr> Huh, Fluttershy learning tough love.
[15:17] <Froborr> Aww, poor Flutters.
[15:17] <@Sylocat> Continuity!
[15:18] <totient> show needed more toy promotion
[15:18] <AlicornPriest> D:
[15:18] <@Sylocat> Wait, is she ging to give them all Rarity wings?
[15:18] <totient> clearly
[15:18] <@Sylocat> Or… not
[15:18] <@Sylocat> The heck is that?
[15:18] <Froborr> It’s toyetic, is what it is.
[15:18] <@Sylocat> HAHAHAHAH
[15:18] <@Sylocat> Wow
[15:18] <@Sylocat> That’s… equal parts adorable and terrifying
[15:19] <totient> +1 to the Sylocat theory of bringing out the trait in others
[15:19] <Froborr> Yep, it’s really looking that way.
[15:19] <@Sylocat> Whoa, what was that beep in the stream?
[15:19] <@Sylocat> A portal to… WOW
[15:19] <@Sylocat> What IS this place?
[15:20] <AlicornPriest> I think you mean, “Whaaaaaaaaaat is this place?!”
[15:20] <@Sylocat> Wait, are those two a couple?
[15:20] <Froborr> Holy mini-sized new playset available at toystores everywhere!
[15:20] <AlicornPriest> Derpy breezy!
[15:20] <@Sylocat> That’s the key
[15:20] <Froborr> D’awww.
[15:20] <@Sylocat> That flower
[15:20] <Froborr> And yeah, the flower’s the key.
[15:21] <@Sylocat> HAHAHAH
[15:21] <totient> inb4 fanfics
[15:21] <@Sylocat> Oh yikes
[15:21] <@Sylocat> Oh the fanfics from this
[15:21] <@Sylocat> That was a good one!
[15:21] <Froborr> That was another good episode!
[15:21] <mere_oblivion> Indeed.
[15:22] <AlicornPriest> Good message, too.
[15:22] <@Sylocat> This season has been on fire
[15:22] <Froborr> It really has!
[15:22] <Froborr> If it keeps up like this, it’s going to surpass S2 easily.
[15:23] <@Sylocat> So, out of the four new writers this season, three of them are great

  1. I wonder if your four-part Alchemy comparison during season one (with 11-14 representing Nigredo, Albedo, Citrinitas/Xanthosis, and Rubedo, could also apply to the seasons.

    In season/stage one, the rules for what a My Little Pony show was “supposed” to be were torn down, with the side effect of the show itself undergoing an identity crisis as well. Things were hectic.

    Season/stage two opened with a clearing for new possibilities, both with the enhanced world-building providing fanfic fodder, and the rest of the characters now able to learn lessons on their own.

    Season three was full of clashes. Earlier seasons had had characters meet their foils and/or shadows, of course, but season three is when that kicked into high gear. Pinkie vs. her clones, Twilight vs. Trixie, the CMCs vs. [REDACTED], Rainbow Dash vs. Lightning Dust, Fluttershy vs. Discord, Spike vs. Angel, and finally Twilight vs. Star Swirl… all battles with enough explosions (literal or metaphorical) to make Solf Kimblee applaud.

    Now, rather than transforming themselves, the characters are achieving the power to transform others, hence the keys being rewards for instilling their own hard-learned virtues in others.
