Discord again!
7 August 2018 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This episode features Discord back to his old tricks. I admit it does seem out of character for him to be so malevolent, but it's still amusing. The Mane 6 are called by the Map to all go at once. Twilight leaves Starlight Glimmer in charge of her school. It's especially amusing to see all the characters that appear as substitutes. Yeah for Trixie and Derpy!

A big part of the plot revolves around a scavenger hunt the students get into. Discord causes more mayhem as usual. It's weird to have an episode focusing so little on the Mane 6 themselves. I guess Discord and Starlight haven't interacted that much. It helps that the animation is so gorgeous. Well, that's to be expected of this series. ***1/2
