Super awesome! They should have spike do more heroic deeds.I was glad that he earned his place on celestia's stained glass history. I was unhappy in the episode just for sidekicks when he wasn;t included on the trip when the crystal empire was working hard to get a chance to host the equestrian games.I thought that wasn't fair.Again this is super cool!
Spike got just about as much screen time as Twilight. He got more screen time than the rest of the mane six, the Princesses, Shining Armor, Cadence and hell even the villain.
Like "Zetastrophenow" said we are getting more character development this season and it nice to see the deep seated fears of Twilight and Spike as well as more development in their relationship as friends/parental figure and child.
About time that Spike was recognized as just as heroic as the Bearers of the Elements of Harmony. Really, because King Sombra, a milenium ago, managed to set up traps that relied solely on one pony attempting to steal back the Crystal Heart. Spike's presence alone is what saved the day. That dragon saved an entire Empire, and actually allowed Twilight to move onto her next level of studies.
It seems Character Development is gaining strength in this season and it's a surprising change of pace from the previous two-parter, which is actually acceptable, given the show's tone. The ponies and Spike are growing up well and that's the series about: a bunch of friends growing up in a world that has the GODDAMN TARTARUS AT HOOF REACH!!
Spike got his own stained glass window, he deserves more recognition. Spike's either saved or attempted to save shit like 6 times. _The Diamond Dogs and Rarity, he got his ass kicked and went and got help. _Snips and Snails bringing the Ursa Minor to town, he tried to stop them or in the very least convince them that it was a stupid idea. _Discord, he sent the letters back to Twilight at the risk of his own health. _Twilight went went bat shit insane, he called in Celestia. _Pee Wee, he saved the egg from being smashed. _The Crystal Empire, he breaks Twilight out of her fear induced nightmare, he brings attention to the never ending stairs and almost gets killed getting the Crystal Heart to its rightful place.
loved that last part where cadence swooped in and brought him down to deliver the heart. I hear by give him the element of dependability he deserves it, he is as big of a hero to equestria as the mane 6.
