Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz finally get to Legends of Magic #8. The continuing assembly of the, well, legends of magic! A little difficult to really make a judgement call on, considering it’s only a part of a larger story.

After that, it’s back to the past with a season 1 episode, “Fall Weather Friends!” This episode was pretty important to the development of the friendship between Rainbow Dash and Applejack. Even if the setup doesn’t always make sense. They get into that, plus a bunch of the little jokes and references throughout.
