So, the wedding episodes. Way overhyped and worth it. For those watching downloaded videos you're not missing anything without Tori Spelling. Of course the plot had the suspicious character (Twilight) who knows something's going on and is ignored until disaster strikes. It worked out very nicely. I thought they could've built just a bit more tension by running the episodes separately instead of one after the other. Fans would be wondering if Twilight were trapped in Tartauros for a week. I always imagined there were ancient caverns and mines under Canterlot and, go figure, there are.
The changelings are a nice piece of new cannon and Chrysalis is an awesome villain. It was great having Luna as part of the story even if she was offstage during the big action so as not to interfere by kicking Chrysalis' plot prematurely. I expect her dialog while changing the watch was added in post so viewers don't miss the significance of something happening in the background.
Defeating the bridesmaids was hilarious. It was such a perfect gag.
The battle scene was awesome, especially the party cannon and Pinkie using Twilight as a weapon. That has to get into Fighting is Magic. Pinkie is best fighting pony. Also another Flutterdash moment if you notice. ❤ It's practically a canon ship as far as I'm concerned.
The three new songs were awesome. This Day Aria was especially nice.
There are some points. One weakness is Shining Armor wasn't mentioned once in any previous episode. There weren't even pictures of him visible in a background as far as I know. Even a shield appeared in Ponyville Confidential. Can only Twilight and her brother create them? Another is, Twilight had the princess for a mentor and another for a foalsitter? She must be even more awesome than we know. Twilight was practically part of the royal family even before her brother married Princess Parquet Credenza, err Cadence.
Oh yeah, and Derpy was there. DJ-Pon3 has red eyes too.
