Sometimes the dramatic demands of the stage require that other characters have delayed (and sometimes very delayed) reactions...

Another session of Shadowtrot is up! And boy howdy is it a doozy.

Delayed reactions. Putting the 'later' in collateral damage.

Celly, Celly, Celly... what will you do now? Aside from the stuff that happened in canon.

(Btw does anybody else have problems with posting comments? I was only capable of *replying* to another comment so far.)

( If other people will have the same problem as I do, then I guess that Digo's comment will become a whole comment thread on its own. :P )

heehee I just love Celestia's face there in the last panel. :)

(and no problems posting if this goes through).

It's such an awesome moment, honestly, she's ticked off that someone has threatened her subjects, kidnapped her adopted niece, and fooled her in front of Twilight. She's ready to step up directly in a way we truly hadn't seen in the show before. Other than the story book cutouts in the opening she'd never directly confronted a villain on screen.

*big sigh*

It does sort of seem like Celestia wanted to let Chrysalis finish her monologue there, perhaps thinking that if she's going to blab her whole plan she ought to at least hear what it is so as to act accordingly.

And then she rolled a 2 on her attack. Because the show's DM said so.

Rather any attack powerful enough to work on Cryssalis would have destroyed the entire room, and everyone she was trying to protect with it.

IIRC, the given reason for Celestia's failure in-show was that Chrysalis had apparently absorbed enough love-energy from Shining at this point that she was able to flat-out overpower Celestia. This surprised EVERYONE, including Chrysalis herself, who probably thought she was doomed when Celestia attacked.

So Celestia didn't necessarily roll low here; It's just that Chrysalis rolled a natural 20!

I do wonder how this is going to be described in the comic. The DM ironically has the same problem as the episode. Celestia is right there but for storyline purposes can’t be the one to save the day, not completely anyway.

I'm with Applejack. How, in Celestia's name, did nobody in all of Canterlot notice the literal swarm of ponified xenomorphs bashing their skulls against the shield?

Maybe they did, but they didn't get to the wedding in time.

The same way that nopony noticed Luna's absence
