Season 3 Premiere Nov 10 - The Crystal Empire

Post  Cypresswolf on Fri Oct 26, 2012 7:37 am

As much as I tried to avoid spoilers - if only to have more time to make up more spots for S3 Bingo -I guess it was futile to avoid them completely.

Here's the first episode of the new season.

Spoiler:
This will be in 2 parts

Part 1 - A magical empire has suddenly appeared in the arctic north of Equestria, and Princess Celestia needs Twilight Sparkle and her friends to find a way to protect it. While her friends try to keep the Crystal Ponies occupied at the Crystal Fair, Twilight Sparkle searches for the hidden Crystal Heart that is the key to keeping their empire safe from harm.

Part 2 - After Princess Celestia commissions her to keep Crystal Empire from vanishing again, Twilight Sparkle realizes that she must find the missing Crystal Heart in order to restore the empire's strength and reputation before it disappears again

From what I understand, it seems both part 1 & 2 will be aired back to back on the 10th

I haven't re watched these episodes since premiere

But I heavily enjoyed the opener

The villain King Sombre seemed much like Sauron of Lord of the Rings - as far as explanation goes. Sauron didn't have much background either, but still held a great evil presence throughout the story.

I consider Wife Tossing a pony sport - mainly because of this picture featured in Equestria Daily's Drawfriend 627 - http://paradigmpizza.deviantart.com/art/Cadenceball-338088043 - How can you not love that Laughing So if you're playing season 3 bingo, you can cross that space out - Yes, there was Jousting too

Twilight learned some epic new spells - C'mon, learning a new spell from sight alone is as EPIC as it gets! Twilight, I'm certain, will surpass Applejack as best pony in my view, but it is not this day - close thought Smile (I love them all I love you)

The designs of the crystal ponies surpassed my expectations - no two are alike - different hair styles, did you notice?

There were A LOT of great facial expressions - Twilight's "Special Eyes" look when she picked up the quills, Pinkie Pie's tantrum over the Flugle Horn, Rarity's breakdown after Rainbow told her "it looks like another dusty old castle to me", etc.

At least we got this out of Twilight's look ^_^

More to come after I rewatch for things I missed or forgot
