I knew that this would be a great episode just from the title! We finally get to see (hear?) one of the Changelings talk. There was actually were some IDW comics where a few of them spoke some words. Then again, Queen Chrysalis already spoke and she's a changeling. I think the infant changelings shown look different than in the comic books. They seem to have these weird backs that look like cow hide! It's nice to see Fluffy Heart again. I am so glad they didn't do this thing where the baby overshadows the rest of the plot.
It's great to see Starlit Glimmer and all the other characters here. Okay, a lot of them didn't do much, but it was still tons of fun. This is the first time we've really got into the depth of a changeling. It's odd Throax (the changeling in this episode) mentions going back to the kingdom and trying to spread love! I admit the ending is a bit forced too. It's still great to see Spike do so much important work on his own. He often has to directly play off of the ponies, but he really was independent in this one. ***1/2
