>>90612014>I thought the "Star turns evil/Star goes literal Rebel Princess" thing had a real chance up to the Season 2 finale where we see Moon is a lot more understanding than she's been presented so far.
That's what will make it all the more better.
The moment Moon decides to be a little more lenient with Star, that's when she loses the spell book, blabs to the whole kingdom about how the monarchy is keeping secrets from them, and shows the potential to be the next Anti-Queen; oh, and surprise-surprise, she didn't have the presence to mind to tell Moon about Ludo's wand, which got the entire Magic High Commission killed.
That's what makes it a Shakespearean tragedy. She trusted Star and Star betrayed that trust again and again and again. Star's going to wind up evil, because Moon didn't double down. She Obi-Wan'd the situation. The biggest irony in the show is that things would not have gotten so bad, so awful, so catastrophically apocalyptic...if Moon had just sent her to St. Olga's to begin with. And everyone here knows it and soon Moon will come to know it.
