Incidentally, it's be cool if they take some animation tips from this scene in a future big Glimmer fight:

Out of everyone in the group, I did not expect Mermista to be the one super into the roleplaying aspect. :allears:

The D&D Important tactical Planning episode was wonderful. It's just a shame Scorpia's incompetent underlings didn't respect her tactical ability, and so were unprepared for the assault she accurately predicted.

I lost it at Mermista quoting the original opening with it's Fabulous Secrets.


I was also expecting Serenia to be a planet, like Etheria and Eternia, and Hordak being pretty clearly from another world. Then it was the name of a heroine... but then it was a constellation again!

I loved this scene. It was great. Hordak just wanted to be so mad at her but he's too intrigued to do more than let her do what she's doing.

In the original lore, Hordak is from another planet, as is the Horde itself. I'm hoping that this portal stuff means we might get to see Hordak screaming at Skeletor over in Eternia.

I just finished watching it and all I want is for Scorpia to be happy. :allears: I also had a fantastic laugh when Scorpia was confused about who Rogelio was because I don't think we learned that was his name until that moment. I am also looking much forward to all the fanart of purrito Catra.

Was Glimmer's 'war plan' a reference to anything in particular, or was it anime in general? I'll be honest, it gave me a kind of cowboy bebop vibe (and the pompadour alex has!!! :D)

Just finished watching the new season and goddamn I love Entrapta. The absolute purest and best form of Chaotic Neutral. She loves exactly One Goddamn Thing and the petty laws of neither god nor man will stand in her way. Even Hordak is in awe.

I agree. The narrative really takes a hit when you cut it in half right after doing all the character building stuff.

Netflix should really make it clear to Dreamworks that this is their plan, because DW are clearly making these shows with the normal 13-26 episode cycle in mind and building to season finales based on that. They try with these 'mid-season finale' episodes but they're almost always character studies that don't get paid off for months or years.

Also had to laugh at how :effort: they were with making Scorpia's crush on Catra deniably platonic.

Since they have an actual onscreen gay couple as central characters in an episode, I assumed that was more about Scorpia herself not quite getting it.

Sounds like a good bet. Can't wait! This show really isn't afraid to keep things moving, which I appreciate. The Horde is very... fluid as Hordak gets more impatient it seems. Bow continues to be the MVP (what a cutie!) and Scorpia is still pure :3:

Just finished season 2 and Entrapta is def. my favourite princess.

I want a crossover that has her teaming up with Olivia Octavius from Into the Spiderverse and doing questionably moral but highly enthusiastic science with each other, building portal machines and the like.

I'm curious as to where Bow's parents get off thinking that the princesses started the war with the Horde.

Scorpia did say that she and her family allied themselves with the Horde after being senselessly shunned by the other princesses, so maybe there is something to that? Possibly related to what went wrong with Mara's career as She-Ra (which I've also been curious about)?
