Hopefully we can get an episode starring Twilight and Dashie. I've wanted to see these two playing off one another since forever but it has yet to happen.

To be honest my expectations aren't the highest, mostly because season 3 was really kind of a let down for me. It had a couple of good episodes, but really no great episodes and just an overwhelming amount of merely adequate episodes.

I guess the thing that has me going right now is wondering just what they are going to do with Twilight as a princess.

As for the episode quality, I haven't had high expections after season 3, especially because of Twilicorn. But the writers showed me in EQG that they weren't complete morons who can only write shit episodes.

Therefore my expectations are fairly high again. I am not sure if they can come up to that.

More bronie faggots trying hard to convince themselves the show is good, and more nor/mlp/eople getting butthurt. It's gonna be sweet watching the fandom die.

I expect Twilight to reach Alicorn Level 2. Then, Rainbow will be overwhelmed by jealousy and begin training at 100 times Equestrian gravity until she too becomes an Alicorn.

Knowing Hasbro, ripping off from something like that may not be too unlikely.

And Fluttershy will also become an Alicorn, but then she'll be scared of her horn. Constantly.

Apart from Magic Duel (and maybe SiP) s3 and EquG were huge disappointments for me. S3 was just extremely boring, EquG an all around terrible, cringeworthy movie.

Plus there's Princess Alicorn Twilight, which I simply can't see work.

Because of that my expectations are very low, but the previews we got gave me some hope. I've been waiting for the episode about Scoots flying problem forever. It holds a lot of potential, especially if the episode focuses on the relationship of RD and Scoots instead of the CMC. But they can also screw it up easily, by making it a repetitive "Scoots tries plan A to fly - fails - tries another way - fails - tries another way - fails" kind of episode.

Also, I really hope the CMC finally get their Cutie Marks in s4.


File: 1377096455494.png (300.97 KB, 541x643, Pinkie Pie Safety Swag.png)

As one of maybe only 9 people in the entire fanbase who actually liked S3, I expect good things and am optimistic for S4.

As for what I want to see out of it, I'm hoping to see a return to the Pinkie/Dash paring, one that hasn't really been explored since early S1. I'd also like to see more Pinkie/Rarity. We got a brief glimpse of it in PYHD, but it was nothing substantial.

Aside from that, I'd of course like to see more of Equestria as a whole. Travel and exploration is always fun. I'm also hoping that certain characters get rerailed in terms of characterization (c'mon, Pinkie. I know you have it in you!).

Poor Pinkie. She got it worse than Rainbow Dash in season 2, kinda. Pinkie Pie did get TMPP but sadly she didn't actually even appear in many of season 3's episodes.

lol. I'm just foolin' with that first one.

And while I wouldn't say that she got it as bad as Dash did in S2 (at least Pinkie didn't have the prestigious honor of receiving what is generally considered to be the worst episode in the entire series), it has been more than a little disappointing to see Pinkie's character go down this route. I'm hoping against all hope that Pinkie will make a return to form in the new season.

Random prediction:

S4 winners:
CMCs, Flutters, Appajack

S4 losers:
Rarara, Dashie, Twoilligbt Spahkle

Wild card

Pankie Pai

This will likely be very wrong

>she didn't actually even appear in many of season 3's episodes
Huh? She appeared in 12 of the 13 episodes, the only one she wasn't in was Sleepless in Ponyville.

No the problem with Pinkie in S3 wasn't her lack of appearances, but just that most of her appearances really kind of sucked. She was outright atrocious in TCE, WA, and GPP. And imo her appearances in OBA, MD, and JFS were pretty painful themselves. It's like they tried to force her to perform a bunch if joke or skits that weren't all that funny to begin with.

Yeah she's the odd one of the group but the writers have to remember that there is more to her character than that. Her being silly random isn't the only facet of her character.

They've been doing that to her since s2 though. That's when she started using tons of unfunny one-liners, and the writers apparently felt the need to always have her do something silly or random, and hardly ever show her being a little more serious.
In s1 Pinkie was amazing.

Cheer up Pinkie fans. Dashie bounced back in an amazing way in S3. All hope is certainly not lost!

If there were a time for Pinkie to bounce back it was TMPP, which lampshaded everything that was wrong with he way she was handled.

I'm just saying its not beyond the realm of possibility. She seems lined up for at least one potentially great episode this season.

More realistic equine whinnies, snorts, and neighs.

That sounds better. Season 4 will be longer than season 3 so you are bound to have plenty of gems.

You sound like a joy to have around. We should be best friends of Steam.

I'd like to remind everyone that as of this post, It's only: 128 days, 18 hours, and 2 minutes until Christmas.

I want the ponies to get out of ponyville more! More travel episodes!

I want the CMC to visit Bab's branch of the team in Manehattan.

I once read an interesting post about how Bab's CMC head quarters could be way bigger and more advanced than their little treehouse and their minds get blown when they see it. I think that would be pretty cool.

I expect Lauren's vision to be raped even further. At least one of the mane six will have a love interest, the show will become a series of self-references, and the characters will become parodies of themselves (see S3 Panka for examples).

I want more of king sombra's backstory to be explored.

I wouldn't mind seeing discord again, provided he only shows up in a cameo appearance rather then an episode about him. That can wait till S5.

Also more of best stallion Fancy Pants.

I agree, they're falling into the trap of writing her the easiest possible way, when in fact Pinkie's humor can be more subtle. Case in point: One of her funniest moments is "oatmeal are you crazy", and it didn't require a cut-away and a laugh track

She's still best pony

I really hope they fix how they write her. She is one of my favorites and they used to write her so well.
