"Uprooted" Friendship Is Magic S9 Ep3 Discussion
« on: April 13, 2019, 04:04:12 PM »
Jumping right back in with a new episode! We return to the adventures of the six students in this one.

Official synopsis: "The Young Six respond to a magical summons from the Tree of Harmony, only to learn it has been destroyed."


Episode Summary:

We open up following the events of the season opener. The young six are experiencing joint nightmares, only to be brought together by a mirage in the form of Twilight Sparkle calling them to the Tree of Harmony.

They rush to the school to meet Twilight, who informs them Sombra destroyed the Tree. The group has become quite fearless after the Season 8 finale, and head to Everfree Forest themselves to see the tree. They attempt to revive the tree with friendship, to no avail, and decide instead they need to honor the Tree's life. Thorax and Twilight descend upon the group, searching for Ocellus who left without warning. The young six are prepared to go on an adventure, but require permission slips to do so, so they return to their homes to obtain them. They return to find Sandbar has cleared out the remains of the Tree of Harmony to make way for a memorial, and has planted a new tree, but it's not the same.

The rest of the group is very upset Sandbar cleaned up the cave, wanting it to stay as it was. They begin to argue over how to memorialize the tree, each having different ideas they feel strongly about. Yoona tries to get them to get along, but it fails. Sandbar continues to watch over the new sapling. Gallus tries turning the cave into a sideshow attraction/museum. Smolder works on a memorial statue. Silverstream paints abstract paintings inside the cave. Ocellus makes a positive meditation spot. All their ideas start to corrupt and damage each other's hard work, ultimately stopping with Smolder brings in her tree sculpture. It nearly crushes Sandbar before rolling to the back of the cave.

The young six continue to argue until Yoona interrupts. She reminds them the Tree of Harmony, while physically gone, is still within them, and in their friendship. Yoona decides to use the cleaned up pieces of the Tree to build something new. The group sings a new song while they build a large treehouse out of the pieces of the tree and the objects they brought for their own memorials. It doesn't come out quite as planned, but the group agrees it has all the parts of them in it. While exploring the new tree house, a magical surge begins. The Tree of Harmony begins to shift and form into a larger and more intricate treehouse structure that reaches above the cave. The Tree's spirit, once again in the form of Twilight, informs the group that thanks to their selfless love and actions, the Tree of Harmony was reborn and reformed once more.

---------------------------------

(will come back and update of I missed anything, my stream cut out at the very end)


So, we got out first young Six episode and first new song of the season! I'm really curious to see what's going to happen with these kids at the end of the series. I personally enjoyed the song and the new design the Tree of Harmony has taken on.

I'd also like to question what the point of signing those documents was all about. Half of them were just the signatures. They didn't seem to earn them, especially Gallus.

That was...cute! I think Yona shone in this episode and I thought it was super sweet to see her help out at her home. The plot was still predictable (of course we would agree with Yona, we know them all trying to do their own thing wouldn't have worked) but it was alright.
I didn't care much for the song, how forgettable.

I would have said “New Playset!”  Except I never even saw the school in person.  For that matter I haven’t seen the two smaller packs with the students, either.

Well the tree chose them to become the next Elements of Harmony bearers... action troup? So much is clear. I thought it was cute but I always like these six more than the M6. I was happy the show did not immediately jump back to slice of life again.

I took that as Twilight insisting that they all have permission from their parents/guardians since Ocellus ran off without telling anyone and Thorax mentioned that the last time she disappeared the Changelings and other creatures almost went to war. Maybe they all came to the Tree without permission but Thorax was the first one to be notified and was able to catch up to Ocellus before the others noticed their children were missing.  Gallus had the permission slip already signed so I'm assuming Twilight made him get a "real" one instead.

This was very reminiscent of "Castle Sweet Castle."

And yes, "playset" too. At least I think it looks better than Twilight's crystal thing-a-ma-jigger.

Huh, that was a pretty bland episode. I really don't remember much from it other than, "Oh boy that song was really bad". :P The new tree house, probably soon to be playset was really pretty though!
