MLP G5 Discussion and Speculation Thread

What if a major part of Misty’s character arc is getting over the emotional damage Opaline has caused her?

Well, to be fair, some very well-known musicians from G4 were also all much younger back then. For example BlackGryph0n or The Living Tombstone. So I can understand that after more than 10 years you want to move in a different direction as an artist.
And somehow I’m not surprised that G5 hasn’t really created a “new” fanbase yet. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that G4 once had that “it’s new and different” charm, but more importantly, the way G5 is distributed.
It’s all well and good that the movie and MYM are on Netflix and TYT is on YouTube. But wasn’t it one of the strengths of G4 back then to be released on a weekly basis? Okay, so TYT does that too. But as short five-minute cartoon. That’s just not enough.
In my opinion, one of the great strengths of G4 was that there was always only one episode a week, and then the fandom had 7 days to discuss it, create music, art, etc. And when the hiatus came, people were full of impatience until a new season appeared. But you knew it was going to take about half a year, and then it would continue.
With G5, I feel like we’re missing the same pacing here.
I think G5 is kind of making life difficult for itself. And for the fandom. Both the old one and the new one. I mean, I can deal with it. But I don’t expect G5 to automatically have the same impact and appeal as G4 because of it. Because it doesn’t. Not only because it’s a successor to G4 - which I personally like, but others dislike because they wanted something fresh. But because it doesn’t have the same regularity as G4. It’s hard for the show to attract new musicians, video makers, artists and so on in this way. So I’m just glad that some old G4 veterans are still loyal to G5. ;-)

Well, she already has a better back history than Starlight Glimmer. And I say that as a Starlight fan. But I guess MYM is called “make your mark” for a reason. Misty’s cutie mark (arc). ;-)
Well, at the moment she still has the chance to push Opaline down from a very great height. In fact, that’s the real reason Opaline wants to get her magic back. She’s just afraid of not being able to use her wings. Damn. The first Villain who knows what it must feel like to be Scootaloo. ^^!

What if the reason Twilight is in her pre-The Last Problem form in the hologram is because storing the magic inside the Unity Crystals used up so much of her power, that she reverted back to her pre-The Last Problem form?

i would conteract by saying the studio got lazy either due to poor research or because they didn’t want do to the flowy mane thing, but considering princess luna has shown a similar presedent it’s not totally out of the question.

@DerpyFast
well it’s likely that she used most of her magic to make the crystals, which probably is why she’s that same as she was before her 2.0 form in the last problem
It’s also plausible that even if Twilight actually were immortal, being so severely drained may compromise that. Which would explain her not being around to properly deal with Opaline.

@DoctorWTF
It also should be noted it could be someone other than oplaine, as in twilight speech the instances where a name for the she/her mentioned were conventiatly gliched out, which kinda feels like an oddly specific detail if she was talking about opaline. At least to me anyways.

Finally made my way through the new stuff since Chapter 2 dropped.
It’s overall okay, found myself enjoying it more as it went on (As always, the sister episodes are the best parts of G5). Having watched the newest TYTs immediately after, I find myself wishing there was some post-movie g5 that had the strengths of both series.
The comic any good?
