Today i thought about how the S9 premiere could have been better if they would have made Celestia, Luna and Stars Swirl fight Sombra and get the win, instead of the mane 6 plot armor deus ex machina asspull bullshitting him.
Maybe while the mane 6 were losing, Celestia and Luna could have popped in and gone like "Star Swirl is creating a barrier (or shield or bubble or spell or whatever) to keep the forest from growing further", "We will take care of King Sombra now". Then they fight him, Sombra fucking stomps, and then Stars Swirl pops in, goes like "The spell is complete", joins them and the three of them defeat Sombra together. Finally making them do something
Maybe after the fight, Celestia and Luna would be wounded or too exhausted and in need of recharging or something, putting them out of commision for the rest of the season. I don't know.
Just my ideas.
there is just one problem with that. The whole point of the mane six killing Sombra (again) was to show Twilight she and the mane six are the elements of harmony and have enough friendship to kill sombra.
I mean from what your saying why not have discord kill sombra since he obviously can, but didn't want to because he wanted Twilight and co. to see how powerful they are.
I do agree that the S9 perimeter could of been better (i mean we didn't need to sisters to troll Twilight and co. by saying their going to retire but not retire.)
I feel like you just came up with the idea so Luna and Celly where too tired to be in episode 13.
But friendship giving them (giving them actual physical powers) actually enough power the sweep away Sombra and everything he has done is a bit ridiculous imo.
I hate Discord. He is a terrible character as non villain imo and i feel like the writers just went like "Oh you know what? We have this character with really stupid bullshit powers just laying around. Let him just finally do something." So yeah, i have pretty personal bias on that. Sorry.
I haven't seen episode 13 yet so i can't say anything about it.
It's just a few ideas that came to my mind today. Just a fun little exercise, i enjoy doing.
I mean they have always had the friendship of power and after all the things i have seen in this show i don't find it ridiculous to see them use friendship to kill Sombra (again).
Also i don't mind Discord personally but i can see why people hate him.
Your idea overall is interesting at i don't hate it, but i can see why the show didn't do that or just have discord fix everything because at this point i am convinced he is more powerful than all the princesses combined.
