When Starlight Glimmer is invited back to her old town for the Annual Sunset Festival, Trixie is brought along with her for support (as the whole idea of Starlight visiting her old town clearly worries her). After a rather overwhelming and unexpected experience, Starlight and Trixie abandon the visit all-together and return back to Ponyville. Although, what's more worrisome is that upon their return, they find that the Mane Six are acting extremely strange and out of character. Starlight, confused and saddened, does not understand why the Mane Six are acting in such an insensitive way. Although, that night, after princess Luna visits Starlight in a dream, it is clear that the problem is far worse than expected leaving only Discord, Trixie, Starlight and Thorax to prevent what is clearly an attack on pony-kind.

Worst two-parter ever!
24 June 2017 | by rebekkaxlSee all my reviews

Starlight Glimmer has really ruined the show! She takes over two parters when the remane five deserves to take over for Twilight Sparkle more, even Twilight herself is too sidelined and I never thought I'd say that.

Starlight is a poorly written character, she's much too new to take over the show and if anyone it should be someone within the mane six. The show has gotten so boring to watch, which is why I watched only two episodes in season 7.

They always try to make Starlight look like she's the best ever by making her OP and seriously overfocus on her, they make her befriend popular characters which makes it feel exactly like they're trying to make people like her. The creators does nothing more than shoving her down people's throats and it's incredibly unpleasant.

This particular episode is the worst I've ever seen out of this show because of how the mane six are treated by the writers, it's absolutely despicable.
