Did You Know?

The song B.B.B.F.F. initially ends on an authentic cadence as its last chord, but when the reprise of the song finishes near the end of the episode, the song ends on a deceptive cadence, foreshadowing the forthcoming plot of Part 2.See more »
Rarity:[Twilight has been talking to her friends about her concerns about Cadence's behavior] The princess is about to get married. I'm sure any negative behavior she might be displaying is simply the result of nerves.
Twilight Sparkle:And *I'm* sure it's the result of being an awful pony who doesn't deserve to even know Shining Armor let alone marry him!
Applejack:Think maybe you're being just a tiny bit possessive of your brother?
[the others agree with "Uh-huh"]
Twilight Sparkle:I am *not* being possessive, and I am *not* taking it out on Cadance! You're all just too caught up in your wedding planning to notice that maybe there shouldn't even *be* a wedding!

there's only one word for this: EPIC!!!, 22 April 2012
Author: zachattack1285-351-594685 from United States

never thought i would say this about My Little Pony but this episode is surprisingly epic.

*note: this is the same review as in Part 2*

Story: Twilight finds out her brother Shining Armor is engaged to be wed to Celestia's niece, Princess Mi Amore Cadenca, know to Twi as Cadence, her old baby... er, Fole-sitter. however, there's something off with Cadence. something only Twi is seeing but nobody else is and by the time everyone does find out, it'll be too late as a War breaks out, placing the world in danger. for the 3rd time in a row.

Animation: the animation is like as it was for the entire series so not much to say there. what did surprise me is that they put in Violence in My Little Pony. Violence. something nobody saw coming.

Music: as always, the music is awesome and this 2-parter features the only songs i like in the entire show: This Day Aria and Love is in Bloom. This Day Aria is the villains song and is surprisingly dark and epic, like a villain song from a Disney Movie. Love is in Bloom plays at the end and is catchy as heck. i'm still humming it.

final verdict: to be honest, i went in expecting a sappy romance like the Notebook or Titanic(before the iceberg). i did not, however, expect that plot twist and the world being put into danger again. this Season Finale surprised me and will you.

also, this is a good episode to show friends or family and let them see why Grown Men are liking this show. who knows, may turn them into Brony's and Pega-sisters.
