I got the impression that all 3 CMC grew up to teach at the School which makes sense to me.  And this is in the future so I’d imagine they have all gotten more training and experience.

Here is what has me wondering (and at the risk of sounding like one of those people who reads too much into stuff):  what was with that little tiny moment between Sunburst and Silver Stream when he takes her hand to help her land?   Am I crazy to read anything into that?

I love how they just blew up Gummy rather than make him look like a more mature alligator.  I wonder if he finally grew teeth.

In a perfect world Discord would have pissed off after S2 :cool:

He's been the worst and remained so until the end (that lunch for Flutters was probably filled with a "ha ha" note because he is soooooo chaotic). Imagine what a cool season this would have been if Grogar would have been the real deal and instead of filler eps we would have seen the Terrible Trio band together against him.

But no, they pulled Discord Ex Machina to have a shyamalanian twist and wrap up the season in lightning speed.

Am I bitter? :lol: YES!

The recent leak shows that they wanted Discoshy to kiss and some sort of hint that Appledash had become a couple.

Gross. An old, dangerous man and the young woman who beauty-and-the-beasted him as a romantic couple and two friends who constantly bickered and had nothing in common except for being both stubborn as a couple. Good it wasn't done the way they wanted it to go.
The fandom deciding on which characters should become a romantic couple is one of the dumbest results of social media. Just yell death threats on twitter and see your ship forced together confirmed  :lookround:

Taking this opportunity to let out my shipper rage over them tackling this subject at all. Poorly worded as usual.

Silver lining: Sparity was killed and rubbed in the dirt and I hate that ship so much. Rarity is an adult. Spike is a kid. It should've been dropped in the fandom from the word go and it wasn't. Good on them for avoiding that.

My exact thinking :( I hate how it became.

And season 10 would be in comics - wonder if they will provide some backing for final pairs?

I am not in favor of either Discoshy or Appledash (or any of the mane 6 paired together).  But am I the only one who is perfectly ok with Pinkie and Cheese?  Not that I shipped it.  I didn’t really ship anyone in the show.  But I don’t have any problems with Pinkie ending up with Cheese even if there where no hints. 

And I think it’s believable that we would see at least one of the mane 6 as a parent.  That might have even been the discussion behind the scenes. Who can we absolutely confirm as being in a romantic relationship and with a kid while causing the least amount of fandom explosion (either for or against).

I'd like to see something about Flurry in Season 10! ...Or maybe a Celestia and Luna origin story? Please?

Applejack's profile on the official MLP site said something along the lines of her wanting to start her own family someday but I wouldn't treat that as 100% canon. :P

And that makes total sense with what we know about her personality and values.   I guess the nice thing about being vague in the finale is that people can read it how they want to.  After all, just because certain ponies weren’t shown as having a significant other or children doesn’t mean they don’t have them.



Edit*. Rewatching and I remembered something I forgot to mention.  At the beginning of the last episode when Luster Dawn comes in and Twilight is like “I’m just your teacher, don’t treat me special”.... as your voice echoes from sitting in this super elevated throne so that you are two body lengths above everyone else.  It just makes me roll my eyes and laugh.

shipping as a culture is absolutely ridiculous and out of hand (it's always struck me as super weird that i'll enter a fandom and the first thing people ask is about ships, which, to me, kinda reads like "nice to meet you! what are your nsfw material consumption habits?") but I do like that appledash happened. I think aside from everyone's ship preferences or opinion on their chemistry, it's important to take a step back and realize how important this is to lgbt+ kids to see major characters in same gender relationships, and not just split second background cameos. I was only 14 when this show started and very much just realizing that i wasn't straight (or cisgender, for that matter) so the closure of seeing the rainbow pony actually represent people like me in a meaningful way is incredibly valuable to my community. like I totally get if people want to voice criticism of the storytelling, but I also urge people to be mindful of how ripping on appledash super hard because you didn't personally like the ship, comes across as super aggressive towards lgbt+ people that are scavenging for scraps when it comes to representation and to stop being seen as inherently inappropriate for children.

Someone finally used Starlight's walk from the episode to make this:

I don't have any issues with Appledash or even Pinkie/Cheese. They were shown as friends and sometimes friendship turns into love.
But like Tealeaf pointed out, there was just zero hints at it. Unless you are a shipper who reaches for the stars to find proof. For instance, two characters smiling at each other in a completely unromantic context. That's not what a real hint is like.

The Pinkie/Cheese thing is just questionable to me because they knew the fandom shipped it and decided to make it happen out of the blue. All while having that new Pinkie/Cheese episode in S9 where nothing romantic happens between them.
Pinkie/Cheese is like Asami and Korra holding hands at the end of LoK. Except they are a hetero couple so we don't get chaste and ambiguous. We get that additional confirmation that they did what horses do to have a foal that 100% looks like a combo of the two :lol:

AJ really could have been the one with a big family. What about adoption? They could have given her a line like "watching all the sweeties I took in over the years is like trying to watch a bag of fleas but I wouldn't have it any other way". She was always an overprotective sister to Applebloom and seeing her brother have a single child and AJ is relegated to Cool Aunt who shares the farm with him was just rude to her (excuse me being a little overdramatic) :P

And fandom wanted her to end up with Rainbow whom she always had rivalries with. I am happy it wasn't confirmed because that would have been even more out of the blue.
Same-sex relationships in kids media should be treated like any other relationships. They should happen organically to tell a story and not thrown in last second to show off how ~progressive your show is *cough* aforementioned Legend of Korra *cough*

Neither Rainbow nor AJ have been acting lovey dovey around each other. Same goes for PinkieCheese, so that ship becoming canon is just as annoying to me, even tho I have nothing against shipping per se. I ship AJ/Rarity. But I am not pretending AJ/Rarity would have made sense, either. It would have been just as forces.

Now in EqG RariJack is very much hinted at and would make sense by the end of the show. Rarity is a closeted bi girl pining for AJ made painfully obvious by that male Applejack she had a crush on in the boat special :lol:
In FiM Rarity was not into AJ that way. So I would have never expected any of that.

I am just happy we didn't get all these popular pairings confirmed. PinkieCheese, Starburst and LyraBon were enough of a bone to throw the shipper fandom.

But I admit, the little devil on my shoulder would have liked to see the pony version of Flash Sentry winking at Twilight. Just to make people mad :lol:
