Oh how I have been waiting for this: Luna returns for the Halloween special. I am beyond pleased that the form of Nightmare Moon was shown, just as I had explained, as a magical guise that can be switched at will.
My predictions have proven mostly true: Luna did have a difficult time adjusting to the world after a 1000 absents, but I didn't expect that they would show it the way they did; where as I thought it would be through new things, they showed it through new ways of acting and speaking. However, even being gone that long, there was a moment where Luna showed a perfect absents of tact and... I just don't think that is even possible.
I just I should have expected this as Luna was a ~bit~ rash in the past, but I didn't think it was going to come like this. I hope the next time we see her, we get to see the awesome side of Luna.
Pinkie Pie wins this year's best acting in costume award. Even though the comedy of the previous episode was over the top, Pinkie's actions are nothing but pure Pinkie-ism: I loved it. I figured out after about the second happening, that Pinkie was hyping up the fear factor for the kids... Maybe I should have remembered episode 1&2, but I was caught up in the moment, and so was Twilight apparently.
I can't tell if they were placating us geeky fans or enticing us when Twilight mentioned pony history. I hope to see more Equestrian history.
Well that's enough rambling for now. Awesome episode, hope to see another awesome soon.
PS- Spike was costuming Barney.
