Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz are excited for the next Equestria Girls movie. And using some of the information they got from the NY Toy Fair (just above!), they speculate on what might happen. And what they hope won’t happen. They get a little crazy, but hey, that’s kind of what speculation is for!

They also have two issues of the comics to review. First is Friends Forever #25. This is the one with Twilight and Dash, and a missing pair of wings. There’s also Friendship is Magic #39! This issue concludes the story of issue #38, including its literal cliffhanger.
