Discussion

We have two comics to review at the beginning of our discussion! Alca7raz and Nemesis take a look at the Deviations issue and Friendship is Magic #52. The Deviations issue is a “what if?” story about Blueblood. And FiM #52 continues the story of #51 with a library battle. Let’s just say one of these comics is great! The other one is not.

We follow that up with a look at a classic season one episode, “Look Before You Sleep!” In which Applejack and Rarity fight. A lot. And then they kiss. No wait, that doesn’t happen at all. But this episode was more or less the beginning of Rarijack shipping! Plus, it gave us many great lines and scenes. So we still appreciate it.
