Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz devote the entire discussion to “To Where and Back Again!” The season 6 finale. And while they didn’t love it… they didn’t hate it either. They have quite a bit to say about Starlight and the leadership subplot she has. There’s also some talk about Thorax’s new design. Even stuff about Discord and Trixie. And there’s stuff they weren’t able to get to! Maybe in the future.
