Discussion

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! Which means Nemesis and Alca7raz are going to talk about “Hearts and Hooves Day.” Which makes perfect sense. Right? Right.

Anyway, this episode is rather special, and not only because of what it’s about. Nemesis remembers when this episode released… several days early. Of course, there’s also talk about shipping. Because how could you avoid that topic? They also discuss the general goofiness in the episode, plus some theories and headcanons (that again) that popped up as a result of this episode.
