The Dark Lord... Kyle.
You'll be wishing for Horde Prime to invade when Kyle takes the throne.
It'll probably be Catra's fault too.

I love Kyle. I'm not sure why the Horde keeps him around, rather than scrapping him for spare parts, but I just really enjoy seeing him being so spectacularly bad at the whole "evil minion" thing.
I can’t help it. I saw a fan animation and it made perfect sense for Kyle especially given the debunked He-Man theory. Especially the idea he’s not really into Rogerio, he just hangs around him for protection.

@ Moroaica, yeah, but the main villain, the Skeksis Emperor is pure evil and the slimy Chamberlain is not much better. I think the really evil Skeksis work as villains because their cruelty and backstabbing makes detestable and makes you root for the Gelfings. I wouldn't the Emperor or the Chamberlain to be redeemed (and yes I know their ultimate fates from the 1982 film).
I like both sympathetic and evil villains, but for different reasons. The best villains are the villains that get an emotional reaction from you. A villain who has no redeeming qualities, but the worst thing he or she does is rob banks is a pretty forgettable villain. Villains who are sympathetic make you feel sorry for them, you feel sadness at their plight and root for something good to happen for them or be sad when they die. An evil villain stirs different emotion, fear from a scary villain and loathing for a repulsive villain, you rather feel fear for the protagonist due the villain's menacing nature or really root for the heroes to defeat a vile villain and be happy when they defeat the villain. Which is what I hope to see from this show in the future, a balance of sympathetic and evil villains, its hard to make emperor villains sympathetic (the Skeksis Emperor, Fire Lord Ozai and Emperor Palpatine are vile villains) and that is what Horde Prime is.
Regarding Catra, if she is going to be redeemed, she will have to do something amazing, like stop Horde Prime from blowing up a dozen worlds or something like that. What punishment she will receive will depend on her actions in the finale. But if she wants to have any sort of happy ending, she will have to take active steps towards redeeming herself and stop playing the same old game with Adora. She has to make a move at this point because otherwise, she will find herself at the mercy of Horde Prime.
@ God_of_Awesome, nice sentiment in theory, but often runs afoul with people's emotions. I think Glimmer will hold a grudge against Catra for a long time and likely would like to see her rot in a dungeon. Actions have consequences and the emotional hurt of tragically losing a loved one (losing her mother, after losing her father) never really go away.
Naming someone slimy Chamberlain is..fricking unsubtle
Chamberlain is his title, Skeksil is his name (he is mainly referred to by his title) and slimy is just the way I would describe him.
I think he is a compelling villain despite no redeeming qualities, he is great at schemes and manipulation.
My point is not every villain needs to be sympathetic to be compelling, if Horde Prime is monstrous, his lieutenants like Leech are vicious, they could provide a good contrast to the more sympathetic Catra and Hordak. Perhaps Hordak realizing Horde Prime is not worthy of his devotion and his uncaring cruelty would force Hordak and maybe even catra to realize trying to please these type of authority figures are not worth it.

"I still don't get the waterfall."
The reason we've not seen a Hoard recruitment video is that Ebtrapa hasn't finished working on the video
What the Horde needs is an anthem. Something appropriately regal like so -
The true burning question, what's the waterfall for?
Its magical water to make the place look pretty
I dunno, Glimmer's reaction was like Adora said "Is this the drinking fountain?" about the bidet. Note that the bathroom was just a bathtub. It's like the three sea shells.
"Because of meditation, I'm extremely calm and at peace all day long."
Poor Adora, only time she's relaxed is when she's asleep.
Noelle Stevenson and Molly Ostertag have moved to wife city.

Is this the name of the city?
It's a reference to the dril tweet

Congratulations, she deserves it.
Someone did a Catradora art of Molly and Noelle's wedding and they love it.
