Entertainment Weekly has again published a new preview of the upcoming episode. After the break!
Poor Spike the Dragon — always the sidekick, never the hero.
Spike’s luck could change, however, in “Power Ponies,” the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. In the show’s latest installment, Spike and his pony pals are transported into the city of Maretropolis — the place Spike’s favorite comic book is set. Though he’s initially relegated to sidekick status, everything changes when the Mane 6 meet pony super villain — and it’s up to Spike to save the day.
First, though, Spike will have to contend with a world that seems set on keeping him on the sidelines: Example: Spike sniffs to Twilight Sparkle that the comic book character Humdrum “never stops the villain. He’s just there for comic relief.” And… well, FIM is meta enough that you can guess what happens next.
