On a related note, that there’s a “DerpyFast” and a “Derpyfan” occasionally mixes me up.
On a pony-related note, is Comet meant to be a new mane squad member moving forward? I can’t imagine they made a big deal about him changing locations for nothing.

I think he is meant to turn the Mane 6 into the Mane 7. Remember who turned the Mane 6 into the Mane 7 in FiM? Starlight Glimmer. Someone pointed out to me that Comet has a necklace resembling Starlight’s cutie mark, a star surrounded by auroras. You really think that he and other Auroricorns can’t be descendants of Starlight when Starlight’s original name was “Aurora Glimmer”? ;)

Also correct me if I’m wrong but Opaline’s cutie mark regalia apparently requires the cutie marks of the Mane 5 since Misty’s served as a ‘bonus’. But why though? I thought she simply needed 5?

@TheQuietMan
She took Misty’s CM to send a message. The CMs in the necklace represent her progress towards her goal. So I think her casually creating a sixth slot and adding Misty’s CM to it is her nonverbally saying “Your betrayal is nothing more than a minor inconvenience”.

Rule of thumb is that the average time to make a 22 minute episode for a cartoon is almost a year.
TYT being 5 minutes obviously should cut that time down a lot, and there’s typically multiple episodes being worked on at a time, but I’unno if we’re talking for the next 2 years then I’m going to spitball and say something like 30 episodes are probably already done.

Didn’t know Starlight was her failsafe should Twilight herself be somehow unable to disable the forcefield which anyways isn’t needed since Sunny and Co. can walk through it. At worst I can see it working against Discord.
Speaking of Glimglam, anyone at all get subtle vibes of her in Secrets of Starlight?

Yes, it’s a trophy. And even if she’s using the raw power of Cutie marks to disable the forcefield, why specifically cutie marks and not a really powerful dispel spell?
Also another thought, it seems this forcefield can differentiate friend and foe. The mind controlled dragons couldn’t pass it despite being forced to be ‘evil’.

Always remember…magic.
I am also shocked to see that I am apparently the only one who caught that Opaline’s necklace was the key to unlocking the Chest of Harmony inside of her, the new Mane 6’s cutie marks needed to activate the key. That’s why her wings grow bright with Rainbow Power.

A few months ago, I watched the Star Trek TNG episode where they defeat The Borg Cube. It’s weird that I could more vividly remember the sequence of events that led to The Borg’s defeat, than I could remember the specifics of how Opaline was defeated.
I think a lot of MLP stuff suffers from what I call “Chekhov’s Cow Tool”, where the plot device is obviously being set up to pay off later, but it’s not clear or intuitive how it actually works or what it does.
Still better than Rainbow Power, which conveniently solves everything.

Guess what kind of comments I recently got on my Make Your Mark Chapter 6 Review?
Yeah, a fan of Star Strike’s clickbait hate rant of MYM Chapter 6 came on to vent about his bewilderment about how everyone is loving Chapter 6 and saying MYM is as good as FiM. He wrote me a whole list of supposed continuity errors in G5. Take a guess how many I was able to debunk with simple FiM/G5 knowledge and some transcript checking? I debunked ALL OF THEM. >.<
You want proof that these G5 critics don’t look up their facts and are encouraging other MLP fans to not pay attention and try to understand what they are viewing? Here you go.
