MLP:FiM S3E12 - "Magical Mystery Cure" Grading & Discussion

Episode Title: "Magical Mystery Cure"
Episode Air Date: Saturday, February 16th, 2013 / 10:30 AM EST, the HUB

SUMMARY: "When Twilight casts a spell that switches the Cutie Marks and destinies, the only way to reverse the spell is by writing her own magic."

-------

Ha-chi Ma-chi! The big finale for Season 3. There's a lot that could happen, a lot that might happen, a lot that will happen, and we'll get to see it all crammed into one 22 minute episode. Chills! Spills! Thrills! Um... Gills! This episode will be the one Bronies talk about through the pony drought, and into the next season!

So, once again, you all know the rules! No spoilers until after 5 PM EST. I know, you're going to burst, but everypony has to have a chance to see the episode before everything comes busting out. So here we go, onward to the season finale!

The Twipocalypse approaches! T-minus 16 hours!

For some light pre-episode reading, let's have the wikipedia article on Magical Mystery Tour, the 1960s Beatles' film that leant this a title. What intriguing hints may we find inside?

During the course of the tour, "strange things begin to happen" at the whim of "four or five magicians", four of whom are played by the Beatles themselves and the fifth by long-time road manager Mal Evans.
......
The film is punctuated by musical interludes, which include the Beatles performing "I Am the Walrus" wearing animal masks, George Harrison singing "Blue Jay Way" while waiting on Blue Jay Way Road and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band performing Vivian Stanshall and Neil Innes's "Death Cab For Cutie" sung by Stanshall.
Hmm. Magicians mixing it up for ordinary citizens? Lots of singing and dancing? Eeeeeeeeneresting. *steeples fingers*

Would you believe that I cannot find a single meet-up group in LA that's screening the finale? Normally bronies are crawling out of the woodwork with events and house parties, but it's like everyone is hunkered down in bunkers or something.

I can't believe it's going to be over already.

A finale in the middle of February has the potential to destroy the universe, especially if it's ponies!

Well, we still have season 4 to look forward to. A full 26-episode order, no less.

Also,


EDIT: Wow, this is really great. I was dreading this based on what had leaked out (i.e.
). Loving the songs.

Yeah, this bit I'm not so keen on...

EDIT: Up until that last few minutes, that was one of the best episodes ever. Then it started making the kind of sense that's not. Still, if, as M.A. Larson says, this is really the first part of a three-part story, I'm prepared to reserve judgement... a little.

It really should have been longer too, exploring more of

Well. That happened.

After weeks of drama, all I'm feeling is weary relief that it's over with. Can't say I enjoyed it much otherwise. It was super-rushed and the end was nauseating. Swapped cutie marks were fun, but as you say, we didn't spend nearly enough time on them.

Well, that was not good.

It's not even the whole Alicorn thing. The episode was just so rushed. It felt like the smashed the plots from two different stories together and didn't give either one a chance to develop.

yup

And Derpy not one but 4 appearances.

Alicorn properly canonised and even remarked about how it was never known for them be made, only born, so there.
