Discussion

We finally get to a comic this week! Specifically, Friendship is Magic #45. The conclusion to the “Ponies of Dark Water” arc. There were some mixed opinions over the two previous issues, so what do they think of the conclusion? Find out if it’s worth buying!

Nemesis and Alca7raz also talk about “The Fault in Our Cutie Marks!” The new episode with a… very enthusiastic griffon. And the CMC! Several topics to cover this week, including Gabby, goofy faces, the song, and a few other things.
