I have to say, I really Love this episode. I'll say basically for this, is like a faster way to know what Meteora and Mariposa would've been like in their Teen years.
I also thought they would've had a plot similar to Hercules or Storks (or both since one a mystical being and the other is a regular human). Thinking they were abandoned as babies, Learning to survive and even only having each other as company. Then some special forces came in to tell what they really are, and attempt to bring them back to their real home. In that regard, That what made this episode feel so sweet. Meteora and Mariposa really have out for each other, and even consider themselves as sisters. They even tend to stay with each other, since they have different families they know they will be apart at some point and don't want that to happen. (Kinda similar even with Star and Marco or in this case a Butterfly with a Diaz) Even with Marco at some point, to even see how his own sister can really have her own personality that's also as similar's as his. Like already I wanted more with the two together. Basically even were almost at the end, it's nice to at least know for this episode really showed love for the siblings.
I kind of like it too. Especially the part where Meteora looked at Marco and told him that looking at him makes her really angry, giving us a hint that she did retain bits of her memory as Miss heinous.
Strong emotions tend to linger, even when memories do not. Odds are the intense hatred for Marco felt by Meteora in the beginning still lingers, but is slowly eroding over time. After all, without a reason to hate, that hate will eventually burn out
This was a great episode. The opening with Marco telling a bedtime story to Mariposa and Meteora was so sweet. And seeing the two of them as tough, battle-hardened teenagers was pretty cool, and Marco and Mariposa's battle against Wyscan was awesome.
It looks like Meteora may finally be warming up to Marco, and her friendship with Mariposa is really cute.
You guys know the law of storytelling, right? The one that says that when a character says another character doesn't have powers in a show/movie about characters with powers more than once that means the "normal" character has powers. In movies the characters just have to say it a few times, in TV shows it's either multiple times in one episode or practically every episode. Sometimes it's to set up the fact that you don't need powers to win against the enemy but usually it's to set up how the character is totally a special person. Oh and usually it ends up being that the "normal" character is crazy powerful compared to the other characters.
It's fine, you are correct about the curveballs though I meant regarding the plot not the characters themselves. Most Disney shows are pretty black and white, a character is evil because everyone says they're evil without really looking at the motives. And that's fine I mean even in real life people don't always have a reason to kill or do something bad. Star vs, however, actually allows us to see that sometimes the "good" people are bad and the "bad" people are good.
Mariposa being magic would be interesting because it means that she and Marco are probably Mewmans which allows her to be with her essentially adopted sister Meteora without feeling like she's holding her friend back.
