You knew the show would get around to this, so it follows that it is the penultimate episode of the season. Sunburst comes to Ponyville to see Starlight Glimmer. The latter is really looking forward to the trip, but is surprised to learn that Sunburst likes to go antique hunting—so does Twilight. He also likes stage tricks like Trixie and geology like Maud Pie.

All of this actually upsets Starlight because Sunburst has turned out different after al the years apart and that he has more in common with Starlight’s friends than with herself. Starlight attempts to relive the good old days with Sunburst to the point of travel back in time and as foals to play their favorite board game, but that doesn’t work.

Twilight re-assures Starlight that Sunburst still wants to be friends (even though he doesn’t have a troubled past or a shared feeling of being different from others) and they, Maud, and Trixie present a life-size version of Dragon Pit (the board game). While Starlight and Sunburst do not have as much in common as they used to, they can still enjoy each other’s company. Though judging by the book in the mystery barrel (and in Legends of Magic #6), that next meeting may come much sooner!

So this was a decent episode. We have seen before in other cartoons where things can change between friends after an extended period of time apart, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t want to be friends anymore. As long as friends enjoy each other’s company, then that’s all that really matters. There’s really not much more to add to this episode is that it does set up the season finale next Saturday. Stay tuned!

    Good review as usual Dan. It’s almost time for me to go. But while I already watched the S7 finale thanks to the leaks, there is still one thing I need to. I will wait for your review for the finale before I say what I need to say, but for now I will just tell this to you: please, don’t let me down.
