My Little Pony: FiM “Magical Mystery Cure” Recap

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

Let us start with the fact that, apparently, this is sort of one of three episodes that will be bleeding over into the next season. That’s going to be so much fun.

And we begin with a song about the wonders of morning….Oh what was it about how breaking into song makes random strangers break out into dance routines…at least Rainbow Dash manages to get in there and break it up a bit with some rain…

Wait, that wasn’t Dashie…oh, this isn’t going to be a boring day in Ponyville

And Twilight, dahlin’…you seem to have forgotten how life in Ponyville isn’t always so simple and quiet. Or have you already forgotten Trixie?

“Magical Mystery Cure?” Nice Beatles reference!

So…Rarity has Dashie’s cutie mark…Dashie’s traded places with Fluttershy….Fluttershy with Pinkie Pie….Pinkie Pie with Applejack….and Applejack with Rarity. None of them do very well at each others jobs, in fact, which is really funny in some ways…oh and I loved the whole “frostbite over their sunburn”.

Twilight…you really shouldn’t close the door on your postal worker like that.

Ah, Starswirl the Bearded…Twilight’s ancestor? His final unfinished spell, and Twilight has to fix it…but what if she tries randomizing it again?

Music heavy episode, but the songs aren’t bad, over all…oh wow…the leaked pictures from before the beginning of the season were from this episode….

Hm….Twilight comes up with an idea of how to reverse the spell…Poor Dashie, she’s in the stew! Oh, Fluttershy, you reallly know your animals. Fluttershy is back to normal! Now for the next one. Another montage…And Dashie’s back to normal. Ah, we’re down to Pinkie Pie after Rarity woke up from that “terrible dream”….AJ is back after saving the farm, and finally, Pinkie Pie is back…

Yes, music heavy episode, but in some ways, not unsurprising given the nature of this episode. Ut oh….Twilight fixes the spell and….

She’s gone!

“Hello?…where am I?”

Celestia has shown up in this alternate world…and yes, more music. The thing is, we’ve actually known what was going to happen with Twilight since the very first episode…yes, I actually watched the first season again yesterday.

So, Twilight is now an alicorn…The Princess of Magic apparently. Oh Pinkie…as usual…has to take a drink to do a spit take. Bring a Princess in Equestria is a position earned, and Twilight has now earned her position. Now she has to learn how to handle her new responsibilities. Now noone can say they don’t know who she is, huh?

Say something…Oh, and Shining Armor, you are allowed to cry.

Now, where does the series go from here? There is a fourth season, and a full one. All together, it was a good episode if a bit heavy on the music.

And for those who want to carry over the lessons that Twilight Sparkle has learned into our world, please go to Bronies for Good to help out those who need help.

    “Starswirl the Bearded…Twilight’s ancestor?”

    Ugh, did they really say that?

      No, they didn’t, but it’s been kind of out in the ether for a long time.

    The only thing the episode was missing was Luna singing.
