How though? I mean, seriously, even if season 9 is a dumpster fire just like season 8
, what can Haber ruin from this episode? The episode is done, no one is going to rewrite it now.
It's hard and probably pointless to be optimistic, but you don't really have to be optimistic anyway, just appreciate what you have. The s6 finale and the s8 finale were shitty episodes about some shitty characters, and the mane 6 were completely ignored. Knowing Haber, the s9 finale will be the same shit again. But as someone said in one of the threads after the episode, the best thing about this special is, we finally have a mane 6 episode that ends with a mane 6 hug and can serve as series finale if we have to ignore everything after it. When was the last time we got an ending like >>33122575
? Twilight's Kingdom, four and a half years ago?
While I do agree that Haber ruined the show beyond salvation, the show will be over in less than a year from now, and when the show ends, the last genuinely good mane 6 episode won't be a distant memory from the remote past, it'll still be a relatively recent episode. I for one I'm happy we got an episode like this, and I won't let a grim future ruin it for me.
