Well, that episode went by quickly, I found!

I can't say that all of my expectations were met, though.

Luna made an appearance, which was what I was hoping for. I knew that Cadence and Shining Armour were gonna make a reappearance in the season premiere. I love them, and hope to see them again in future episodes. For a second, though, I thought Shining Armour was going to end up being controlled by King Sombra with those black crystals on his horn.

This King Sombra guy can be compared to Sauron of The Lord Of The Rings. That scene where he first appeared underneath all of the ponies in chains certainly evokes that for me. I've also recognized the Six Million Dollar Man sound effect when the fake crystal heart was flying through the air. That final scene where King Sombra just "explodes" is very reminiscent of what happened in The Matrix when Neo entered into Agent Smith and caused him to explode in a flash of light.

My only dissapointment was not seeing King Sombra in a direct confrontation with the Mane 6, which was what I was hoping for.

Overall, the story was good, but not GREAT. Not like the season 2 finale. THAT was epic!

I'm not gonna stop watching the show, though; and I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of King Sombra.

BTW, Rainbow Dash should've chosen a better jousting partner than Fluttershy. That crystal pony male she was taunting, for instance. :P

Hmm... mixed feelings about this opener. Didn't like it as much as the previous ones; the villian was pretty undeveloped, and I found it really weird that Celestia would send Twilight off with an order that could've well ended the world. If I had been in Twilight's shoes, I would've assumed that Celestia knew better than myself and thus had a REASON for telling only her to deliver the heart--something crazy like if anyone else touches it it'll be destroyed and the whole venture will fail, something like that. I imagine Twilight was more concerned about something like that then simply about whether or not she'd pass the test, but eh. ;A;

I also feel like there was a lot of stuff that went unexplained here. Luna's odd looks and the weird book I can forgive, as I imagine they'll be explained in future, but--unless I totally blanked, was it ever even mentioned that Cadence was deeply connected to the crystal kingdom? I don't think it was, or if it was, it wasn't mentioned in detail. I think that should've been explained more in the episode. Bleh. D:

So yah, wasn't super impressed by this one >____< here's hoping the rest of the episodes are full of epic!

I was going to write something along these lines, so I won't anymore (I woudn't like to be repetitive). I totally agree. I loved the design of the crystal ponies, but I was rather... well, disappointed by it all. I got the feeling that Twilight didn't get her priorities quite right this time. And as much as I love songs, this time they didn't work for me.

Meh. Let's wait for next week.

Whew, I'm glad I'm not the only one <X'D I often assume that if I didn't enjoy a particular episode, it's largely because I had unrealistically high expectations for said episode (a fact somewhat proved by enjoying certain episodes more on the second viewing), but even then, I've never had to watch an OPENER twice to be able to really enjoy it. If this season turns out to be more interconnected than the other ones and leads up to some epic climatic return of Sombra at the finale, I'll be able to forgive it for having a weak opening, because in that case it wouldn't be necessary to have the full story contained within the opening itself--but for right now, in comparison to the previous openers with their self-contained stories, it fell flat.

I agree, and think Celestia had rather misplaced priorities, too; I understand she wanted to test Twilight, but again, the 'lesson' in this case could've easily been misunderstood as a lesson to obey one's elders, no matter how silly their advice sounds--and if that had happened, then, y'know, all of Equestria is toast because Celestia gave an ambiguous order. ;____;

LOVED the season Premere, I will admit, it could have been better, BUT I feel the reason for this isn't on the dev team's fault. nore is it hub or Hasbro. they were working against time and the limited rources they have. (remember guys Hasbro did have to make some cutbacks for costs)

Aside from the short comings, if anyone saw Sombra blow up (yeah he's made of shadow, but DAMN that was cool) then they saw his horn fly off. and after seeing he is capable of regenerating severed horn (and possibly other body parts like a dang Millinium (Internetz to whoever gets this refference)) then it could be possible he'll return (I won't count my dragons before they hatch but yeah).

Like :iconsonicfull: asked, I too would LOVE to know who voiced King Sombra, he sounded just so AWESOME! I wouldn't say if Frank Welker voiced him.... but I'd be so hyped if he did. I sometimes thought of Megatron when I heard that voice. but it was so deep (though I was wearing bass headphones when watching the show, so that could have helped with that). if it was Frank Welker who voiced him then I'll pray Frank does more work for MLP, same with Peter Cullen. now I'm not pushing for any Transformers references (I'll admit I'm a Transformers fan) but I hope they have some way for the fans of both series to recognize it. (like G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron colored ponies with their voices? you know, one shots ofcourse but hell, why not?)

Anyways back to the season 3 premere. it was great, and I like how Shining is getting tired of his baby sister having to save his arse. it defenantly helps with character develoupment. Cadence I can understand why she didn't do alot, but we also saw that Alicorns do have Mortal limits..... that or Cadence is a diffrent breed of Alicorn or because she's still young she has yet to ascend to goddess rank like Luna and Celestia have, and still has some growing to do.

now for the Crystal Ponies.... I thought they were just adorable. and I love the concept. and I also loved how the mane 6 were crystalized for a short while. and didn't try to make it a new power or thing they'll be in for the rest of the series.

ah and finaly. Spike... hehe Man has that little guy gotten to be a little soldier. even got a stained window dedicated to himself. I hope to see more of him.

now.... WHAT IN THE NAME OF CELESTIA'S HORN WAS THAT BOOK LUNA HAD!? is this the next part of her studies? maybe she'll become a true Mage soon! on her way to be an Arch Mage!

I love it a lot, so many great things (jousting, the Fluttersuit, we see Cadence and Shiny again)... but I wish they'd given Sombra a little more character development. When compared to the likes of Nightmare Moon, Discord, and Chrysalis, he just comes off as a little flat.

But that is at worst a very minor complaint next to the news that the ponies are back.

I too was a little disappointed with Sombra's lack of presence. However, A part of me is convinced that he will return, that this was just a taste of Sombra.

We did see that horn of his go flying off. Maybe somepony can grab that and use it to become the next Sombra?
