Breakfast in the Castle by InuHoshi-to-Darkpen Air Date: 6th April 2019 Written By: Joanna Lewis and Kristine Songco Synopsis: Twilight experiences self-doubt when Celestia and Luna decide to retire and hand off the ruling of Equestria to Twilight and her friends. (N.B.: Using the Zap2It synopsis as it's the least spoilery. ) In case you missed it in the general season news thread, these episodes have been teased a bit in a couple of trailers: (The second one is particularly spoilery) Spoiler: Trailer 1 Spoiler: Trailer 2 This one particularly hits me in the feels. Well, here we are, the premier for the final season of our beloved pastel ponies. There may only be 26 episodes left, but I for one don't see an end to my enjoyment of MLP. Spoiler: My own thoughts As I said in the other thread, I'm thrilled that Twilight (and friends) will be succeeding Celestia and Luna. Not just because I'm a big fan of Twilight, but also because it was part of Lauren's original vision for her, so I'm glad to see that they've stuck to that. However, I thought that would be the type of thing that they would have saved for the very last episode, so I'm very curious how this season will unfold. That said, I hope Celestia and Luna are still around and involved, and don't simply go off to wherever ponies go to retire. I'm also curious what they plan to do with the villains in these episodes, as it sounds like it has the potential to be a very involved story, along with the possibly rushed conclusions as we've seen in the past. However, I was very excited to learn that The Lady Writers did these, as I've greatly enjoyed most of their previous contributions to pony. Not related to this episode directly, but I do hope the finale is called "The End of the Beginning" or something. Please remember to use spoiler tags as appropriate until 24-hours after these episodes have aired on Discovery Family. Thank you.
