Discussion

Nemesis and Alca7raz investigated “Rarity Investigates” this week. That was an awful joke, and doesn’t entirely work. But we did it anyway. After last week’s mediocre showing, can this Rarity episode do better? And what about all the shipping?

Friendship is Magic #34 also came out, and they have read it. It’s the beginning of a new story arc. Did they enjoy it? And will the this arc fizzle out like some other have?
