Season 6 overview in a single sentence: if Season 6 had been Season 1 I would have dropped the show from my radar.
There were a couple of good episodes (the Daring Do ep with Patton Oswalt was really, REALLY good), but the majority of them were very poorly written, poorly paced, and generally indistinguishable from most other kiddy fare at the moment. On a whole I'd rank Season 6 below Season 3, making it IMHO the worst season of MLP:FiM to date.
As for the finale... there are more holes in the plot than there are in the changelings' legs. It was poorly paced, though the Misfit Band of Heroes worked fairly well (though the Discord-Trixie friction never quite clicked). Loved the changeling hive. Hated the McGuffin Throne of McGuffining. Totally WTF'd at the character designs for redeemed changelings.
I am told that this year Hasbro execs were micromanaging the show. I wouldn't doubt it for an instant.
