>>99617698>Star Vs. has been getting better as the seasons have gone on.
Even if the finale is really good its hard to say that Season 3 was better than Season 2. Season 3 has been more consistent but it's also consistently fallen short of Season 2's high points. There's even more continuity between episodes but there's so many storylines going on they have a hard time focusing on any of them and so much seems to happen off-screen, while Season 2 was built on two or three strong storylines and kept a consistent theme in almost every episode of Star suffering for her shortcomings and being forced to recognize them and overcome them, on her own or with Marco's support.
I mean just compare the buildup to the season finales. "Tough Love" went in an interesting direction at the end but most of the episode was just bad, not just from an entertainment perspective but it's objectively one of the worst-animated episodes in the series until the fight scene. Meteora feels like a different character, and much less of one, than she did in Skooled.
Contrast with "Just Friends" which while also not really anything special for most of the first half at least felt like a natural interaction of Star, Jackie and Marco which hadn't really happened up to that point, and led into the concert scene which was absolutely phenomenal and lasted three times as long as the good part of "Tough Love.">I only hope this upcoming finale isn’t just a rehash of the season opener.
All we really know is that "Divide" is going to involve Marco trying (and failing) to hold back Meteora with his band of dorks, probably getting some nice character drama in there with Tom and Kelly in that mix, and Star trying (and failing)
to bring her mother back from the Realm of Magic. It should be interesting no matter how they play it out.
