Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz have two issues of the comics to review! They started off with Friends Forever #24, the one about Rarity and Gilda. It’s an odd combo, so what did they think of it? There was also Friendship is Magic #38. This is the first half of a new story arc featuring the CMC. They actually think this is the better of the two.

Once again, they go to the past, and talk about season 2’s finale, “A Canterlot Wedding!” This was a big episode at the time, and it’s still a good watch now. They talk about the fandom’s initial fears, the sudden new family for Twilight, and of course, Chrysalis and the overwhelmingly positive reception she got.
