Edit, March 25th 2014: Changed "…Everypony in Ponyville…" to "…Most of Ponyville…" to close a plot hole.

The moment that Shining Armor rocketed out of Canterlot with Celestia and company, I couldn't help but ask myself, why, if he had that kind of power after opening his insight, couldn't he whisk away everyone in the city?

I actually expected a lot of people to be asking the same thing, but I think Luna encompasses it nicely. During an emergency, sometimes you just can't do the right thing, one way or the other.

So.. what was the plot hole mentioned in the description?

Edit: Nevermind. I got it.

There's also a note here that I'm guessing is touching on why Celestia acts the way she does, supposed 'flaws' and all. People in positions of high power like that don't often have the luxury of asking. You make snap decisions because you have to, and have to trust your own experience and intuition that they're the right ones.

It's a thing Nahmat (I assume intentionally!) managed to miss completely, despite being in a position of authority herself. Though then again the fact that every snap decision she made had negative consequences for her probably is a bit of a commentary on that.

Alright, now I can say that I don't think Spike can send a letter to everybody in the world. I had to wait to see if you would convince me there was a way this works, you see. But I just don't see any reason to think Spike can send a letter to more than one target.

why is the lower portion of Cadence's wing purple? is it because she is tired?

wow... nice emergency flame.

but frankly I'm out of ideas...

... he sucks up all magic including the will to live..., save for the magic of nature...

he has the magic of the elements, and the divine powers of Celestia and Luna... thus the sun moon and star magic...

I doubt he can be harmed by mortal means, though it inst an impossibility

touch him with magic and he takes it...

I need more information...

I just thought of something. Spike still technically has magic in him since his flames can be used to send messages. So maybe the magic in him can be used to an advantage somehow. Or maybe just use his flames alone to light Garlo on fire and burn him to death. There we go, problem solved.

Other than the mane 6 all of them still have magic, even though Luna and Celestia lost a good chunk of theirs.

Considering how poorly the elements of harmony fared, I don't think blasting Gralo with magic is the solution. In fact his whole evil plan is absorbing magic.

I don't want to give anything away here, but I think I've figured out how it was that Gralo has been able to get the upper hand in this and how Nahmat is really involved in this too. Though we'll have to wait and see in the next update to be certain.

Sometimes the tactically right decision isn't the one you want to have to make.... But has become about the survival of all ponies and possibly all other living creatures on their world. If they can stop Gralo there will be time to pick up the pieces later.

I love the panel next to the one where Shinning is trying to comfort Candence by telling her she did okay. Cadence looks so broken... being strong is SO DAMN HARD sometimes. You drew her expression spot on, it really moved me, congrats!

option 1: pummel Gralo to death with hooves. option 2: get Herobrine from minecraft there and let him loose. (note to self: NEVER again search My Little Pony after playing Minecraft.)

Luna raises a good point here, what to do about Gralo? I heard using Dragons or even Discord, but those, too, are magical beings. Dragonfire would likely just get absorbed, Discord's magic - if he would use it for their sake is still questionable - would be especially delicious...

They'd need a totally un-magical hero. The Gen1 fan in me says 'get that human girl back here' but she mainly used the rainbow of light, which was what the elements are for Gen4, so... No use either.

I wonder what Nahmat had planned to do with Gralo after she found him.

Aw. Oh yeah, I must read her words wrong. Cuz to me it sounded a bit like when you say things like that to send someone on a guilt trip so they'll want you to stay . . . or somethin'.
