Well let me put it this way.Faust while making season one took inspiration from things like Tolkien and DnD,basicly she made it a DnD game with ponies and a little less Epic Quests. Alicorns are...or were considered the demi-gods,the mystery surrounding them hinting from anythint to a lost race to a weird night at the prom. And now....after shoe horning Cadence from nowhere they have the NERVE to prove that Alicorns are just unicorn nerds.I'm sorry but for me that just killed it.
It will continue. It's too big of a cash-cow to let go now. They'll milk it until it's dead and dry (which I don't foresee happening anytime soon); unless they "royally" (all puns intended) screw up this finale.
