Discussion

There are several discussions this week! Nemesis and Alca7raz open with “Hearth’s Warming Eve,” the season 2 holiday episode. Yes, they finally got away from the previous generations. A lot of this talk centers around the lore the episode introduced, and even a little bit of speculation on windigos and sirens.

The also review Friends Forever #12. They enjoyed it, for the most part. Thank USPS and the holiday season for the delay on this one. There’s also the Equestria Girls Holiday Special, which they didn’t really like at all. And they have very good reasons, too. Finally, they get to the recently released Funko Celestia and Luna figures. They even have a tip for fixing bent plastic!

Happy Holidays, everyone!
