Discussion

As said above, Alca7raz and Nemesis had a small discussion about the recent season 6 teaser. To sum it up, they’re not exactly happy, but they at least want to see how things play out before giving a final judgement. Guess we’ll see in the spring!

They also went back into season 2, this time watching “Baby Cakes!” A Pinkie-focused episode, and our first real look at babies in Equestria. A bit of talk about how it was handled, future appearances of the babies, and the unexpected horror scene. Plus silly jokes. And more.
