as much as having the very first Celestia episode is doublebilled with glimmer irkw me, I’ll still watch if it means getting another episode with only Celestia in it.

Yes, it probably will.

So I keep thinking about the "Celestial Advice" episode title, and what it could be about (as well as what other people have suggested), and this is what I’ve come up with so far:

1) The episode everyone has wanted for a while. Twilight, seeking advice on how to mentor her student (Starlight) better, goes to Celestia for advice. Celestia in turn provides both encouragement and a relevant story drawn from her thousands of years of life experience.

2) The episode people may be ok with. Starlight wants to be a better student to Twilight, and goes to Celestia for advice on Twilight and how to do better overall. Celestia provides advice and lessons from her own life that help the situation.

3) The comedy with a life lesson episode. Twilight and Starlight travel to Canterlot so Twilight can fill in for a vacationing Celestia and Luna for a few days. While there, Twilight decides to start answering some of Celestia’s mail, with increasingly problematic results. Also, Starlight inadvertently makes ponies think Twilight has seized power in a coup, causing a mob to storm the castle with pitchforks and torches to overthrow "evil" Twilight.

4) The only tangentially related episode. Twilight decides to start answering friendship letters like Celestia always did for her, but has trouble with it at first. Her disappointment is compounded by the fact that Starlight never writes to her.

5) The "we never actually said it was about her, you just assumed it was" episode. Starlight and Twilight have to deal with trouble and panic when another pony (who is convinced that he can tell the future based on the relative positions of planets and groups of stars in the night sky) starts giving "celestial" advice to other ponies in Ponyville.

Of course I know which one I’m hoping for, but it is still worth considering the other possibilities as well.

(sigh)

(was hoping season 7 would be the last)

For crying out loud, man, I really don’t want this show to turn into Spongebob. At this point, I’m just not seeing what they can do to keep it from becoming stale and derivative, especially now that the mane six are probably about as wrapped up as they’re going to get and have minimal room for further development. I mean, consider Applejack’s "Day" Off, for instance. This episode was greatly disliked among the fandom, and part of the reason for that is because it acted as though it was developing Applejack’s character when it really wasn’t. We had never seen her work so stupidly in any episode before, so the episode pretty much just introduced a flaw for her which she overcome in the very same episode. I kinda can’t help but see us getting more episodes of this nature in the future because the writers aren’t sure how to further develop the mane six.

Unless Guardians of Harmony changes the format of the show completely, or brand new characters are introduced to replace the mane six, I really just don’t know.

Season 8? That could be a thing. You know what else could be a thing?

Movie #2.

Says the guy with an obviously starburst shipping image. Seriously, at least try to be subtle.


Perhaps a better wording would’ve been, "not JUST my hardcore Starburst shipper talking">

it never had a point, we had twy and kinda wanted to see her succed and kinda make friends.
now the staff wants glimmer to be the new twy and kinda do the same when the show revolves around her trying to be better pony and such.
the issue is that her character is all over the place thanx to sketchy writing and odd morals on her episodes so some are looking at the new season as mane 6 lacking but in reality we just never accepted glimmer as the new main pony…
i readed an article about her character on equestria daly where the staff explained what her character should be and kinda works in paper, the execution was done so poorly that now half of the fandom cant stand to be on her corner lol

so yeah exited for the new season but i can see miself skipping half of the episodes whit her on.

Honestly, I really don’t want MLP to end. MLP and its community is one of the few things that really brings me happiness no matter what mood I’m in.

Season 7 is going to follow the same exact format as the last one, which aside from some small changes (mostly the addition of the map and Starlight) has been the same format since season 4.

– Two-part opener with some hints to the upcoming finale
– At least two episodes for each Mane Six member and Spike. Some of these may be map episodes
– A Discord episode
– 2-3 CMC episodes
– Not including the premiere and finale which she is part of, about 4-5 Starlight Glimmer episodes
– The finale which does some irreversible change to the status quo. Still thinking it’s going to be Glimmercorn this time, since that way she’ll "be too busy with her new role elsewhere" to be easily explained to not being in the movie

You're going to love me.
I mean as long as Celestia gets one episode, I’m glad with it ending before things get real stagnant.

I kinda agree with this. No other show brings me a feeling of being a part of something as MLP.

I don’t like Steven Universe the same way even though I can see where people who think it does some stuff better than MLP are coming from.

I tend not to get super into any show, and when MLP ends I’ll not really have anything else like it.

@alekpo

I really don’t think the show can keep having the same cast forever. At least in the types of epsidoes we see them in. The more lessons they have to learn the more people will say they’ve regressed as characters or been handed the idiot ball or something. People think the cast should be "better than this" more and more, but then they’ll say the characters are boring if they don’t show any flaws. It’s a lose/lose situation for them.

That’s part of why I welcomed Glimmer. We had Twilight acting in a different capacity in Star focused episodes. Star was the in they had to bring other characters into the fold or give older ones larger roles.

So uh, will they really be doing something with Gaurdians of Harmony?


It’s getting a comic series at the very least. I think it’s possible that FiM could end with season 7 and a Guardians of Harmony show might rise to replace it.

Can’t say I’d be enthusiastic about that. I’m honestly to the point where I really want there to stop being villains popping out of the woodwork and attempting a takeover of Equestria on a regular basis. On top of that, I really want to know that the mane six are not going to be continuously dragged into the never-ending battle for Equestria for pretty much the rest of their lives.

Good luck getting it to air in Australia, we already shot down the toy line, and if I’m not mistaken Pixel Pinkie is still airing new episodes, so if anything they’d just replace what little FiM broadcasts we get with that

In my opinion they were testing the waters to see if it was worth making Guardians of Harmony into something beyond just a single series toyline.

Who knows, it could become an entire sub-franchise like Equestria Girls if the toys sell well enough. I could potentially love a Guardians of Harmony spin-off show.

Much like "Exploring Equestria" was the S6 theme. I wouldn’t be surprised if "Guardians Of Harmony" is the S7 theme.
