S03 05: Face yourself to face your foes by Esuka S03 05: Face yourself to face your foes by Esuka
Twilight approached the cave slowly. She peered into the darkness, searching for any sign of what lay inside. Only the swirling mists at its mouth responded, wafting just off the ground. With a nervous breath, she turned to Zecora.

"Are you sure this is necessary?"

The zebra nodded. "If you are to best Trixie, your mind must be clear and your conscious true."

Twilight looked into the darkness once more. "What's in there?"

"Only what you take with you."

So, how many people thought of this ([link]) when the intro played? Siiiiiick episode. I was sure they were going to do a cave scene ala Star Wars, but I guess I'll just have to settle for Twilight water walking and shit.

Hey, as long as Twilight doesn't end up kissing someone who is actually her long lost sister, they can go as Star Wars as they want. Use the force, Twilight! Fulfill the prophecy and become the new alicorn master! I mean Jedi master!

Really awesome episode, and so so many references. They are really going all out with those this season.

Lovely art Esuka. Twilight and Zecore look amazing :)

I like this because it shows all the doubts Twilight has and the confidence of Zecora.

I loved the episode and my favorite part was what happened to Pinkie!
Sorry fellow MLP:FiM fans, Pinkie is just to sugary sweet and flouncy bouncy for me.

I bet everyone thought of Star Wars when Zecora trained Twilight. She's the best Yoda.

If I'm not mistaken, Luke tells Yoda that he's distracted by DV. Twilight also tells Zecora she's distracted by Zecora.
Textbook!

You mean Twilight tells Zecora she's distracted by Trixie?

As soon as it cut over to the water scene, immediately called star wars.

Yea, pretty much thought of Star Wars (Luke and Yoda) the moment this scene happened, also kinda cool that she can walk on water
Also, pretty sure there's plenty of new stuff to mess with now that this episode has passed

Yeah. I thought the same when I watched the intro. But there is a ponified intro of it, here: [link] .

I still wonder what were those lessons Zecora had teach her. But your title is true lesson of life.

Nice work

Zecora's "Unlearn what you have learned" line made me quirk an eyebrow. What's wrong with what Celestia taught her?

I'm pretty sure she just trying to Twilight to refresh her mind. :aww:

Yeah, this episode screams Star Wars. Twilight learns from a strange being that speaks in an odd manner, is powerful in magic, does meditation and lives in a forest.

Then later Zecora says this. "Unlearn what you have learned..."

Also in that episode.
Pinkie can't speak, yet Applejack still understands her...just like Han and Chewie

That is what came to my mind as well!
And Zecora kind of sounds like Yoda too.
