Discussion

A couple of topics this week, one larger than the other. We start with a quick review of Legends of Magic #7! It’s all about a pony who brought the Legends together in the first place. Reviewing it is weird for several reasons. One of which is that it ties into our second topic.

Which is “Shadow Play!” Yes, the season 7 finale. Alca7raz and Nemesis have quite a bit to say about this. Some of it didn’t even make it in because of time. But they get into topics like the Pillars, lore contradictions, and the fact that Equestria Girls is still canon. Also, they might have accidentally stumbled across a way to completely write Starlight out of the episode. Oh noooo...
