Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz (mostly Nemesis) talk about something that the fandom has been talking about a lot for the last week. Namely, an LGBT character appearing in Friendship is Magic. They both feel this is extremely important, and they go into why. They also talk a bit about an editorial that appeared on Equestria Daily covering the subject. They weren’t thrilled with it.

After that, they talk about the newest episode, “No Second Prances!” This was the return of Trixie, and it was a Starlight episode. And while they both enjoyed it, Nemesis does have a few complaints about it.
