Hello, and welcome to the March 13 edition of Pony Stuff Weekly. Here’s what happened in official pony news over the last week. A lot of this stuff is spoilery. You have been warned.
We pick up right where we left off! On Saturday, a new Season 5 promo was revealed. This one was released by Discovery Family, and it airs on TV. Beware of spoilers!
On Monday, another one of those preview things was uploaded to the official MLP YouTube channel. Spoilers again.
Apparently their butts vibrate. Seems legit.
After that, news slowed down a bit, and we didn’t really get anything more until Thursday, when Equestria Daily reported on rumored titles for the first six episodes, but that turned out to be bogus, so it’s not worth talking about.
And finally, on Friday evening, we got a synopsis for the third and fourth episodes of Season 5. I cannot stress this enough. There are spoilers in the text below.
S05, E03 – Castle Sweet Castle (First Aired: April 11, 2015) The ponies try to make Princess Twilight’s castle feel more like home after finding out she’s been avoiding it.
S05, E04 – Bloom and Gloom (First Aired: April 18, 2015) Apple Bloom has high anxiety over getting her Cutie Mark and it begins to turn her life into a nightmare.
I’m super excited for Season 5, and I think all the recent hype is getting everyone else excited too. I logged into DeviantArt a few days ago and found over 400 new deviations in my inbox. It’s like the pony fandom is flaring back up to it’s full glory! 😛 Once again, I am only doing this once a week, so if you want to be kept up to date, you should keep an eye on News tag on Equestria Daily. If you want less bullshit, the news tag on Derpy News MLP is a good place to start.
As a side note, for now I am only covering official news about season 5 in these weekly roundups, but in the future, I might start spotlighting fan works, and other stuff like that, because more pony.
