If you all watched the two part season opener of FiM, then you'll know that today Spike was the true hero! He not only sings in both episodes, but he also helps in ultimately saving the Crystal Empire and defeating King Sombra. He even gets his own stained glass at the end and gets credit for helping save the day. This is a glorious day for Spike lovers such as I and it really shows how much Spike is being loved now. He no longer standing on the sidelines or being the bench warmer, but instead is now the hero and saves the day! He is now and forever a hero to all of Equestria. Three cheers for Spike and here's to hoping to see him more as a hero!
