    First, welcome, txty to the club! :D

    I finally saw the season opener and
    I like that they set up another overarching plot for the season. It shows that the writers have ideas on how to have stories to develop the other characters, especially now that Twilight has gone through her major development. Now she can sit back and maybe learn to fly while the others learn their lessons and get some good development.

    Hopefully they figure something out for Applejack.

    I don't really mind that there wasn't a new villain. It worked better to bring Discord back because the writers didn't have to spend time developing some new evil creature only for them to disappear after being defeated.
    "Now the trumpet summons us again--
    not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need--
    not as a call to battle, though embattled we are--
    but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out."
