What's all this whining I hear about Sombra not being bad enough? Or getting enough screen time? Or not being developed enough?


Calm the fuck down.

He's going to be back. The lack of exposition confirms this.

Further proof:
When Cadance's magic shield sliced off his horn, we saw the severed horn piece act on its own (melting into the ground). Later we saw Sombra repair his horn completely. What has been established? That Sombra can regenerate (his horn anyways).
What happened the last moment we saw Sombra? He got obliterated into shards by the crystal heart magicyness... and we saw his horn (intact) fly away (towards the viewer).

He'll be back.

Besides, the episode wasn't about Sombra. It was about Twilight Sparkle.
What happened at the end? Twilight was allowed to advance in her studies. Celestia and Luna are preparing her for bigger, badder, showdown that has yet to happen.
My guess is that we're going to see a winged Twilight at the end of this season.

I'd like to see him come back but sadly, it's been confirmed by the writers that he's been Killed Off For Real.

I want to like this for the Sombra comments, but I really don't like the idea of a winged Twilight. :-/
I noticed the intact horn as well but didn't connect it with his possible reappearance until now...interesting...
I need to try shrooms.
They apparently make people smart.
Ehhh... I wouldn't say that.

So what is your secret?

I don't consider myself stupid and I'm a total sucker for this kind of foresights, reading between the lines and interpreting mysterious innuendos, but I totally failed to foresee this one and only in hindsight I notice how I totally should have.

If you say so. Sobmre aside, the enpisode just had poor writing in general (for an MLP episode) This show tends to be episodic, never carrying a story arc more than two episodes. And the entiretime I watched it I was thinking "Explain show! Explain!!!!"

There were just too many things brushed under the mat, too many things never explained or spoken of again. dont get me wrong, It was an awesome episode and I still love every episode to date, but by MLP standards the episode itself was weak.
People are just comparing him to Discord, which isn't really fair as they are two different types of villians. Hopefully Twilight won't become an alicorn, at least not until the end of the show. It would upset the balance of unicorn/pegasus/earth pony for the mane 6, and she would be changed as a character. If she had to be an alicorn at all, it should be on the final episode of the show. Sombra is more than likely to come back, probably at the end of the season.

Winged Twilight?

Goddammit, I was able to avoid all spoilers until now.
My speculation.
