"Twilight's Kingdom" Summed up in a couple of paragraphs:
The opening scene of this episode starts out in the Crystal Empire, with Spike talking about the season 3 opening episode. Rainbow Dash makes a witty remark, and then Rarity counters that remark.
After the song, we see a random pony walking down an alley way. This scene really reminded me of the Mummy. A cloaked figure (who we later find out is Tirek) steals the pony's magic.
One of my favourite things about this episode is the fact that Discord in his opening scene in the episode floated down like Mary Poppins.
In this episode, we get to see what actually is in the box! I know that dm29 on deviantArt drew a picture of his idea on how to open the box awhile ago, and here's the picture (below):
Celestia tells Twilight that Discord has betrayed the ponies and joined forces with Tirek. I like this aspect for two reasons:
The Princesses give Twilight all of their magic so when Tirek comes looking for them, he can't steal their magic.
Tirek storms into Canterlot Castle and tries to steal the three Princesses' magic. He finds out that they don't posses the magic anymore. At that time, Discord is messing with the stained glass windows, and Tirek discovers the fourth Alicorn Princess, which happens to be Twilight.
Discord captures the rest of the Mane 6, except for Twilight, and then Tirek sucks up their power levels.
Tirek then absorbs Discord's powers, and then the lesson for Discord kicks in at around this time. I am okay with this because he made Fluttershy cry. That is not acceptable.
Twilight and Tirek start an epic fight, complete with an awesome musical score! It reminds everyone in the fandom that this isn't just a TV show for little girls anymore. Maybe G1-G3 were, but not FiM!
Twilight gives Tirek all of her magic in exchange for Discord and the other mares. Discord then gives Twi the amulet, which happens to be Twilight's key.
The Mane 6 take down Tirek using the power of friendship. I'm honestly glad that they technically didn't use the Elements of Harmony this time around.
Just your average person who posts about anything pony related and sometimes things about magical blue boxes.
