Wow, I was only expecting one of the two parts to air today, not both of them. Sweet, no week-long suspense!
Gotta say, Sombra isn't exactly the best villain we've had. He barely has any lines of any sort and really lacks any manner of personality. He's just an encroaching enigma, and really nothing beyond that. Afraid to say, but Sombra is the least interesting or engaging villain in FIM to date. If there are any fanfics in the future that do more than reference him, I'll be surprised. In fact, I'd be surprised if the Crystal Empire and the ponies therein get much more than lip-service in future fanfiction. There's really just not that much to capture the imagination, or to leave one demanding more information about. I get the feeling this was a Hasbro mandate, and little else.
Still, we got some funny stuff. It's always great to see the Mane 6 doing their respective things. Obviously Twilight got the most development here, showing us her awesome gravity spell! Yeesh, she's turning into an arcane Swiss Army knife.
Oh oh, and Self-Levitating Twilight! Fucking CALLED IT!
Though for all I harped about Sombra, I'll admit he got the most graphic sendoff of any villain yet. Getting shattered into pieces and blown into freaking oblivion. It's the first time after a villain's defeat that I have to ask, "Whoa, is he DEAD?"
So yeah, not awful, but not the best we've had by any means. Here's hoping to future episodes. That Trixie one already has the air of being legendary :-)
Harry intentionally used the occlumantic link to see Voldemort's thoughts. He was flicking lit matches at Lucius Malfoy.
"Your pain bores me," said Darth Nonose. "Go fetch Severus. I have some death for him."
Wazit_Blade: "Gah! J-Dude just invaded the thread!"
