Nightmare Night Party
I got a bit excited seeing the 30 min length on the Youtube thumbnail. On a hunch I skipped ahead a bit to see if it really was an extended episode but no, it’s just a new episode put inside a compilation. I know they’ve been doing that a lot with these shorts but this is the first time they debuted a new episode with one.
It’s great to see which tradition survived the ages. I wonder how much of Nightmare Night’s story is intact, and how much do ponies remember Luna. I mean, even by the time of FIM we already saw that Equestria had forgotten that NMM and Luna was the same pony.
I’m almost certain we’ve seen rarity wear Pipp’s costume. Or at least something like it, or somepony has. But I can’t figure out who it was or where.
I recognize the creepy twin girl reference with the Pippsqueaks which I’ll now be using since that’s what they’re refered to in MYM and “nuovo-CMC” is unwieldy but I’ve never actually seen the movie or know who they are.
Surprised at the “Princess Zephyrina” line. Weird of Pipp to say it and weird of Zipp to no flinch over it.
Hitch must really like that disco costume of his. And I almost wonder of Pipp was being sly with him by saying the getup wasn’t any different than usual and the mustache was the entire costume.
I’ve already mentioned the amount of bae with Nightmare Sunny (reminder:it’s a lot), but I think this is the first time TYT has alluded to Sunny being a history nut. It is a surprise that she picked NMM of all ponies and not Twilight though. I also wonder if the wings are a part of the getup or they just painted Sunny’s ethereal wings.
Well. There’s always been fusion with lead characters, and I don’t think Izzy’s costume will change that one bit.
Misty is here and in costume. I’m thinking this is half due to Opaline’s pestering and also as an unadmitted desire to partake in the festivities.
Pegasnails may or may not be a recent phenomenon if Opaline’s reaction is anything to go by.
Song’s okay. Maybe something to throw in in the background every once in a while but eh.
I like how Misty’s just been a background annoyance in these last 2 episodes. She and Opaline have been more entertaining as bumbling mischief makers than they were in MYM as semi-actual threats. Still, hope future episodes find a nice middle ground between 2 before the big spectacle where they take center stage as actual villainy.
Still wondering if “sparkles” are an actual thing or if Izzy is just being Izzy.
Oof. I too thought Opaline was working her way up to complimenting Misty, but the moment I saw those hopeful eyes I knew we both were in for disappointment. Opaline is not just her boss, she’s technically her stepmom after all.
Before it was earth ponies who were scrubs. Now pegasi have the least flashy magic. How the turns have tabled these unknown number of moons. Unicorns are still the master race so all’s right in Equestria though.
Izzy’s still trying to break Misty out of her shell. Misty’s totes gonna join the Mane 5 and Izzy will finally get that unicorn friend.
Yeah this was a pretty good episode. Still sour about being wrongfooted with the length but hey I’m already well used to the 5 min runtime. Seeing the Pippsqueaks laughing with Rufus over him spooking them was nice and makes me want to see a future episode showing them beings friends. Seeing side characters develop is always fun, and since Rufus isn’t a stranger to them we know the Pippsqueaks won’t have a problem getting into his unmarked van for free ice cream.
I wonder if Misty will get that compliment before or after she betrays Opaline though?
