This Is Why I'm Hot

To me, it was more that I've seen it being criticized to hell and back so much that I'm just indifferent towards it now. That and the fact that I enjoyed the rest of the finale.

It’s really his “redemption” that did it imo. His constant behavior getting worse and worse while they kept giving him a pass as just “Discord being Discord” was just grating on me and retroactively made “Keep Calm” harder to go back to. I was hoping Discordant Harmony would turn things around but then A Matter Of Principals and S9 in general came and shat all over that

The complaints towards statue-ing Cozy Glow are also bullshit.

She almost brought forth the apocalypse to Equestria twice without any remorse, doesn't matter whether or not if she's a child.

Make New Friends but Keep Discord and Discordant Harmony are some of my favorites.

i just don't like how the main characters seem to know who is irredeemable or not based on factors they couldn't possibly know, and then use that to decide who they'll reform or not. they've never used actual judgement to make the decision, they've never had faith in someone who it turns out was irredeemable and been bitten in the ass for trusting them, and they've never thrown someone to the wolves for being beyond redemption and then realized they fucked up and damned a good-at-heart person. i get that it's a kid's show and you're not supposed to think too hard about it, but it creates a moral luck kind of scenario that makes the main characters look like self-serving bad people.

it'd just be cool if they explored it a little deeper, is all. for a show with the tagline "friendship is magic", they've actually very barely touched on the actual nuances of relationships and friendships between people, how those emotions can change people for the better or worse, or drive them to make bad decisions, in any realistic capacity.

though i will say i honestly don't count cozy's second attack. remember that she was pulled out of jail, told "follow my orders or else i'll kill you" by a villain, then learned said villain was one of the "good guys" using her as a disposable pawn to make his friends look better. are we really blaming her for sticking the attack after learning that? seems like a pretty reasonable reaction. what were her options? go back to jail indefinitely to be forgotten about in a tiny cage? hope the guy who threatened to kill her doesn't kill her? run and hope the people with absolute authority over the entire nation who have the reality-warper and magic problem-finding table and princess who can get you in your dreams don't find her and kill her or put her back in prison indefinitely to rot in a tiny cage?

It's no different than if they'd just killed her. Actually, it's probably worse. Keep in mind, she still might be aware like Discord was.

Oh! So you've seen the finale!

…yeah, what they did to the villains is outright evil. No justice, not even imprisonment- at best, they are left unable to move or speak for centuries, probably over a thousand years, if not forever. That's fucked up, especially since they were disarmed. If, say, it had been impossible to reverse what they did with the bell, they become combatants and shit's not ideal, but it happens. But this? That's sadistic.

I still maintain that the best decision after all that would be bury the statue until a more convenient time (which is, until Twilight got into her head she totally could reform them).

Otherwise, it'd be a matter of time until some fool tried to destroy the statues for revenge and accidentally freed them.

Not to mention the possibility of suckers trying to pull a Nyx with them.

Because let's face it, considering what they had done and were trying to do, the possibility of a normal Equestrian citizen trying to defend them is about the same as of a common Cambodian defending the Khmer Rouge's regime. Which would only leave the literal devil-worshippers.

yeah. the no justice thing is the big one for me. everything she did seemed more like she was concerned with silencing them and covering all of it up to save face to ensure her friend gets away with it rather than actually doing the right thing or protecting her subjects. discord was guilty of more evil and wrongdoing than all of the members of the legion of doom combined, so if she was motivated at all by concern for her subjects discord would be in stone right alongside the rest.

@Latecomer
gotta get out of there before her subjects learn she literally betrayed them, i guess. besides, twilight's not exactly innocent either. she cared more that maybe her achievements weren't valid than she did that someone close to her had betrayed her and endangered her soon to be subjects. like, she didn't care at all about equestria itself outside of "it can't be destroyed! i keep all my stuff here!"

@Mildgyth
no matter what, it's quite telling that she couldn't let them have the chance at redemption or even so much as speak their case, because the truth of what happened had to keep quiet for her sake.

hard to not see malice in it. everything the legion of doom did, they did on his orders. also don't forget he outright threatened them with death if they refused to follow his orders in the first place. that they were bad people doesn't change that he was worse every step of the way.
