» In My Time of Pony

We’re almost three weeks removed from “Magical Mystery Cure,” and we’re still talking about it. Sure, the discussion’s not as impassioned as the initial weekend, but it continues. That’s great. We have many months, maybe even a year (!) to speculate about Season 4. So let’s talk about this episode a bit more. It’s funny, all the hype surrounding the episode became suffocating to the point that some wished that the episode would just air already so people would just shut up. If only they knew.

Many reflected on their time with the show, from the first day Twilight landed in Ponyville to her graduation from her studies. It’s been quite an adventure for fans. Here’s just one of those journeys. Apologies if this gets a bit indulgent.

Today’s featured content is by a relatively new member, Kitty Kate!

On February 16th, 2013, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’s third season ended with the airing of its thirteenth episode. Songs were sung, parties were thrown, and liquid pride was shed. Now, however, the finale has passed, and people have already begun speculating on where the show is headed. Before we get too caught up in arguing about the future, it might pay to slow down and take a more in-depth look at the past, especially in the wake of the last episode—”Magical Mystery Cure.”

“Magical Mystery Cure” is far from the standard that previous episodes have set. Even though a fourth season has already been confirmed, the episode still feels less like the show’s standard fare of episodic comedy and more like an ending. Complaints have been raised that the episode felt rushed, and opinions are divided on certain major changes to the show’s dynamic introduced by this episode. However, Magical Mystery Cure does more than end a season—it marks the end of a journey, a dawn of a new one, and a grand finale to everything we’ve seen before.
