Reviews Comments: A Disappointed Ending. My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic S 2 E 26 A Canterlot Wedding Part 2 whole series review by antiguo
This doesn't mean it was bad, but for all the hype both the media had given to the two hours wedding and the sheer quality momentum the entire season 2 had created, it was barely acceptable as a filler episode, less so for a supposed epic ending. Well, let's start with the good and then the bad. THE GOOD: 1.- The Music was quite good, with the vocals and the thematic at hand. Great work Daniel Ingram (I think). 2.- The Mane six fight scene was superb, both comedic and awesome and showing that they can be a force to be reckoned with without the elements of harmony. 3.- There were some...good-ish jokes. THE BAD. 1.- My main beef with the story are the two main characters of the drama: Shining Armor and Princess Cadence or the fact that they were never alluded prior the entire thing in the first place. While it can be explained for Cadence for be an alicorn (even when she was her favorite fillysitter), Shining Armor is put as a BBBFF for Twilight, becoming her emotional crutch while she was a foal and having a huge impact in her life... and never mentioned in any of the dozens of flashbacks, imagine spots, interviews, letters or any other form before the entire wedding propaganda. 2.- Chrysalis. Who is she? Is she a new foe or an ancient horror? Why does she needed to crash in the most fortified building in Equestria and no other city? How does she passed the defenses or how does she abducted Cadence? What was her masterful plan beyond "eating love"?... There is no foreshadowing, not build up or even an monologue. Both Nightmare Moon and Discord got, in the same rushed introduction, a very well explained back story, goals and why Celestia couldn't face her... Chrysalis is pretty much a Captain Planet Villain. 3.- Love or why is so powerful. It's my little pony Friendship is magic and yet the entire thing was constructed in a Disney-esque love, conquer all. Not only the entire relation is only alluded ( the flashbacks are about Twilight relationship with them) but somehow managed to defeat both Celestia and Chrysalis in that order. Why? The Elements were ancient elemental relics of untold power, but how was Princess Cadence/Shining... bubble thing capable of defeating an entire race and save the day. Seriously, WTFM?. It jut feels cheap.
