So after getting her "New kingdom" Twilight and the others go to the far reaches of Equestria to help people with their friendship problems. Plus there's a new character which we'll get to in the first 2 part episode of season 5:
The Cutie Map part 1:
The scene opens up as we see Twilight's new castle in the background. We won't see much of the inside till "Castle, sweet castle".
They sit down and wonder what to do now that they have this castle. By the way the whole "seats glimmering" thing is gonna play a big part in this. Fluttershy not wanting to argue is so like her XD.
Anyway as soon as Twilight Sparkle sits down the room starts to shake and a new map appears. "Is that new? I like it" Oh Spike XD. This starts as always our opening theme.
As the scene opens back up they are in awe at the map. "Hi mom and dad" Pinkie Pie being Pinkie Pie as always. Now then onto the whole cutie map making their cutie marks shine. See when a friendship problem arises they are alerted by the map with this. This leads them to some unknown town outside of Equestria.
Everyone but Fluttershy decides to go to this place. But then gets second thoughts after hearing what Spike and Big Mac have planned. They arrive at the end of the line where the map sent them. Pinkie Pie goes to scout out what's happening.
There are ponies there but with one slight difference. Their cutie marks. They're all the same. Whoa. Rainbow Dash always looking for adventure. By the way Pinkie Pie has a solid point. Those smiles are creepy *Shudders*. They head into town where they are greeted. Creepily but greeted. Nope no trouble but how much you want to bet there is something wrong. A witch? No. An evil enchantress *Pinkie Pie starts singing her song but Dj stops her*? No. A pony. A pony by the name of Starlight Glimmer. How? Oh you'll see. And there she is.
She asks how Twilight Sparkle found them and they answer. By the way the reason they don't have different cutie marks because they don't want others to feel indifferent. They sing this season's first song "Our town" which is pretty good I might say. Again creepy. *Shudders* So they decide to stay for a bit to see what its about. So what is Starlight Glimmer trying to accomplish and why is she doing this? You'll see.
Exactly Twilight. Eww the same clothes too? Come on. My exact reaction Rarity. So they start arguing which makes the ponies of this town wonder if its because they have "Talents". Pinkie Pie XD. "If we were sitting at the end of Equestria we'd be sitting on a big A" XD.
Muffins? That's it? Muffins? They order some but for some reason Pinkie Pie wants twelve. Uh isn't that what friends do? Agree and disagree? By the way those muffins are tasteless as mentioned by sugar belle and Pinkie Pie's reaction. Sugar Belle asks them to meet with her later. They eat the muffins since Twilight Sparkle thinks their being watched. Poor Pinkie Pie. She has to eat all those muffins. Blech. Looks like she'll be sick and they go to find out what's going on.
Sugar Belle tells them why she wanted to see them. By the way this again is creepy. By the way they used to have cutie marks that were different. The way they had their cutie marks taken was by a relic "Staff of sameness" to do the cutie unmarking. They can visit them anytime they want and so twilight sparkle and the others go to see this so called vault.
That's a lot of cutie marks. Way to spill the beans Pinkie. Starlight Glimmer takes all their cutie marks. Now they all have the same marks. Oh boy no cutie marks? No way. This ends part 1.
Cutie Map Part 2:
Part 2 starts with scenes from part 1. Will they get their cutie marks back or are they forever markless? Find out in part 2.
So how do they convince ponies to stay the same? By brainwashing them. If I had to hear that stupid recording over and over I'd rip that speaker out. Without their cutie marks they start to adapt. This isn't like when Discord changed their personalities or when their cutie marks got swapped. Nope this is way different. They start acting different. Applejack doesn't speak country anymore. Fluttershy can't talk to animals. Rainbow Dash.... Hmm maybe she's less awesome? Pinkie Pie is less excitable and Rarity can't tell the difference between tacky and beautiful.
SHUT UP ALREADY! Sheesh. The only way is to make them think one of them has changed. Fluttershy of course. The plan? Find a way to get their cutie marks back. Pleasant night? More like creepy *Shudders*. Also who thinks Starlight Glimmer's whole sameness is a cult? I do. The plan goes into action.
Fluttershy has to snitch about who told them to convince she's turned. But one spills the beans why he did want it back.
Fluttershy is shown to a new home. That night she sneaks out to find the cutie marks. She overhears what Starlight Glimmer plans. Starlight Glimmer is heard and her secret is revealed. What is it? She has a cutie mark. She painted over it to make it look like she had the same cutie mark. Fluttershy decides she wants to lock them in and why? To tell them Starlight Glimmer's secret. Party Favor comes out with Twilight Sparkle to say she's turned only to show Starlight Glimmer's secret.
See the staff was a fake and Starlight Glimmer is too. Enh wrong starlight. She runs away and they go to get their cutie marks back and starlight glimmer has theirs. They try to break in but its too late. Starlight Glimmer is gone. They spot her running towards the pass where she can't be found. They give chase. Party Favor to the rescue. Just before she reaches the cave they stop her and the mane 6 get their cutie marks back. Exactly Twilight. Great speech girl . She runs away and Twilight Sparkle hopes starlight glimmer can learn that too. They join in the festivities and their cutie marks glow again. See once they solve the friendship problem their cutie marks glow.
It doesn't have to end no. Not for another 5 seasons Pinkie Pie . Thus ends the Cutie Map.
- The new map and how it works is cool. - "Our town" is a great song.
- Just the thing we need. An episode about a cult. *Sighs* Hasbro why? - Starlight Glimmer is not a villain.
Above all an okay episode. I'd watch it again. 9.5/10.
This episode is good. Seeing how Twilight Sparkle feels after losing her library and not wanting to stay in the castle is neat. Even the song is good. So here is:
Castle, Sweet Castle:
As the episode opens we see her helping Fluttershy with her animals. Why? Well you'll see. Poor Angel XD. This opens the theme.
As the episode opens back up Fluttershy thanks Twilight Sparkle for helping but wonders why she did. Angel locked her out XD.
The next morning they talk about what Twilight Sparkle has been doing the past few days over breakfast. Helping Pinkie Pie pick a flavor for the pancakes, helping Applejack dig holes, rearranging Rarity's jewels, racing Rainbow Dash 100 times (I think she might be exaggerating but who knows) and losing each one not to mention helping Fluttershy give all her animals baths.
No wonder she's tired. "I win" "I'm pancake. I mean awake" XD. See this episode has a lot of laughs. They tell her they know she's avoiding something. Its the castle. She just doesn't feel at home in it. Trust me girl I know the feeling. So they decide to need to decorate it. While she goes to the spa. She does need it yuck.
Spike has one duty. Take her to the spa while they decorate.
OMG! I love this song . This is right up there with Celestia's ballad among others. "This castle a home" is the name and its awesome. Can I just say I love hearing the mane 6 singing. Sure its not all of them but wow . All the while they get the stuff they think will make it a home. Animals, balloons, new drapes and rugs, pictures of rainbow dash and her heroes, and apples. Sheesh guys this is what you'd like.
Well this is okay. Okay for them but not for Twilight. Yeah Spike's reaction says it all. Bad? Its terrible. You guys have to fix this. So they decide to take one decoration out. Much better Twilight . Well what better way to distract Twilight than to get more relaxed. And Bulk Biceps is giving the deep tissue massage. That might be painful.
Back at the castle they have all decided on what to take out but Rarity. Come on Rarity. Guys stop this isn't helping making this a home for Twilight Sparkle.
Yep definitely painful massage XD. Twilight Sparkle and Spike make their way back.
And there's why she didn't want to come back. She misses her library. Poor Twilight . Same as Spike. More distracting.
There's nothing left in the castle. Not homey at all. Come on gals you can do it. You are after all her friends. Yeah that's a good point they did make it look like what they think is home. The one solution: Make it like the golden oak library . Nice suggestion. They remember the good times except the sleepover that was almost a disaster XD. They decide on one thing but what is it? You'll see .
More distracting. The song continues. Again I love this song .
Twilight Sparkle and Spike return only to see that they changed nothing. Well I wouldn't say nothing. There is that big chandelier in the middle. The chandelier has memories of all their good times at the golden oaks library. All made from the roots of said library. This makes her happy. They go to have cake in the dinning room only to find what's left of what they initially planned XD. This ends the episode.
- Good episode all around. Shows that a new home just isn't a home without memories of the old one. - "This castle a home" was a good song.
- Not too bad its just they kept making things worse.
This episode is okay. Its not as good as a later episode with the CMC but its okay. Here comes
Bloom and Gloom:
Our episode opens up as the CMC are at their clubhouse. They're having a meeting but what is it about? Babs seed finally got her cutie mark. A pair of scissors. Applebloom says its perfect since she's always messing with her hair.
This is a problem since she can't be a Cutie Mark Crusader since she has hers. Uh gals that's not helping matters. This opens the theme.
Back to the episode and now that they talked about cutie marks Applebloom is worried about getting the wrong cutie mark. Applejack sings "You're cutie mark won't change you" which is short but nice.
So the next few parts are kinda like "Groundhog day" except their all nightmares which you'll see what I mean later.
The first time she wakes up Applejack sees Applebloom got her cutie mark. What is it? A spray can with apples coming out of it. What does that mean? Well somepony knows and he enters just in time to tell her what it means.
It means she can stop an infestation. An infestation of Parasprites? *Pinkie Pie jumps up* No sorry Pinkie its not that infestation. Twittermites. Basically they're lightning in a jar. Yeah repeating everything is kinda annoying. Also if they gather in a swarm the shock gets stronger. Hence why they were contained. So having a cutie mark like his means your a pest pony? Okay then whatever.
Oh jeez its Diamond Tiara and Silverspoon. Ugh. Now they're making fun of the cutie mark she has not that she doesn't have 1. The jar cracks which will come into play in a minute.
A mysterious voice is heard and asks if she wants to get rid of her cutie mark and she says yes and gets rid of Applebloom's cutie mark. Who does this belong to? Not gonna tell.
Back in town the twittermites are causing a ruckus. Applebloom tries to wrangle them up but since her cutie mark isn't there she can't. They destroy the barn and Applebloom is about to get zapped before waking up. Or did she?
She awakens again and this time she has another cutie mark. No its not the cutie pox. This time its a different one. Its a potion cutie mark. Looks like Twilight's lessons paid off. Or did they?
At the clubhouse she shows her cutie mark but then is told she can't be a part of their club since she has hers. For that matter be in the clubhouse. The mysterious voice is heard again and erases Applebloom's cutie mark again.
Back at the clubhouse Applebloom shows she no longer has one but guess what? Sweetie Belle and Scoot-a-loo has theirs. They leave her alone in the clubhouse.
She wakes up again and this time instead of being excited Applejack looks disgusted. Why? Well her cutie mark isn't an apple. Its a goofy looking dolphin. This gets Big Mac and Granny Smith agrees because again its not an apple. They reject her because she can't be an apple family member.
Well she wakes up again but as she does multiple cutie marks are seen even one of her face. She goes to hear the mysterious voice again. She's been fulfilling requests left and right. Who is it? Well it is a nightmare and who's the princess of the night? Luna. The voice was her own shadow. It was all a nightmare.
As Luna says sometimes we can worry about a dream so much we have trouble waking up. Yeah I get it. Apparently Applebloom is afraid of getting her cutie mark. See her life might seem bad if she gets it but she has to accept the cutie mark because it makes her well her. But can you guess who has had nightmares too? Yep Sweetie Belle and Scoot-a-loo.
Luna stops all this and they figure out why they were afraid. Lesson: Don't fret about what makes you, you.
They decide to send a care package after they wake up XD.
Now the real morning comes and Applejack sings the song along with Applebloom which indicates she feels better. This ends the episode.
- The song "Cutie Mark won't change you" - The lesson was good.
-It was a somewhat bland episode.
This episode was okay. 8.5/10
Next up is "Tanks for the memories" and I can relate to Rainbow Dash on this one *Looks at his old cat's picture*
Tanks for the memories is a good episode. Its kinda silly at some points but anyways here's
Tanks for the memories:
As the episode opens we see Rainbow Dash and Tank getting ready for winter. Tank being slower than usual. Welp seems like Tank is showing signs of hibernation. Rainbow Dash reminds Tank of the awesome stuff they'll do. Also has it not been 4 winters since we seen Tank? *Scratches his head* Maybe this is after she got Tank. Who knows.
Thanks Twilight Obvious. This opens the theme. As the episode opens back up Fluttershy is checking Tank over. This is only because he's getting ready to hibern.... *Rainbow Dash growls* Oh come on. You still hate that word. Well Tank is a tortoise Rainbow Dash.
Rainbow Dash goes to an expert as she says but as we know Fluttershy knows all there is to know about animals. The expert is Spike. Spike just tells her what Fluttershy told her. Um Rainbow Dash dragons aren't reptiles. THEN WHY DID YOU COME TO HIM ANYWAY! Sheesh. She decides to take Tank out to get some exercise but just like Fluttershy said he starts digging in the ground and Pinkie Pie sees this and says hiber..... *Rainbow Dash stares him down* Okay, okay sheesh. This sets her off.
Uh yeah don't say that word Twilight Sparkle she might go off on you too. You're not angry.... riiiiight. She's showing one of the stages of grief. Anger.
For those of you not familiar there's 5 stages of grief. There's denial which we already saw. Anger which she's at now. Bargaining is the third. Depression is the fourth and finally acceptance. Trust me I went through all these losing my cat .
Now comes the bargaining. Yep she's bargaining with Tank. She decides to try to stop winter. Oh boy that Grinch grin. Okay this part is hilarious. Hasbro went Abbott and Costello with this part. Instead of who's on first its the ponies names and the clouds XD. First she hides the clouds. "I'll fly" is the name of the song while she sabotages the plans for winter. This song is good I must admit.
That doesn't work so what's next? Go to Cloudsdale to stop the cloud making. She arrives and enters during lunch hour. She looks at how she can stop it. Snowflake sabotage is too small so she goes to stop the cloud making machine instead tying Tank to something which will cause havoc in a minute. No water no snow. It starts to work but remember how I said the thing Tank is tied to will come into play later? Well he flips a switch which turns on a fan. Oops. The door opens and Rainbow Dash opens a jar with lightning which kick starts the cloud making machine and the fan starts going at top speed.
Well like it or not Rainbow Dash winter is coming. My words exactly Twilight Sparkle. That's one way of bringing in winter. Rainbow Dash is about to enter stage 4 depression. This is exactly how I felt with Cali's last day with me . Just sad. Yes I know Tank isn't dying but she's gonna have no Tank to have fun with.
Fluttershy breaks the cold hard truth to Rainbow Dash. Her winter is going to be petless . Its just like when I got the news Cali's kidneys were failing I bawled for at least an hour after I got home. Heck the next day I was fine till I got home and forgot she wasn't there. Poor Rainbow Dash. I know the feeling buddy. Fluttershy has a point. I never got past Cali's death till I let it all out and she does needs to let it out. Sure let Applejack handle it. Seeing her in this state makes me want to cry with her. Oh great now they're crying. Thanks alot guys. Now the waterworks are starting. The only one not crying is Twilight Sparkle. Applejack is crying but on the inside. Rainbow Dash is starting on the road to recovery.
The next day winter has come and Rainbow Dash is getting ready to say goodbye to Tank and she used the word hibernation. Wait you didn't growl.
Rainbow Dash: Well seeing you get all choked up made me realize that you had a hard time too.
Oh and they all want to celebrate him coming back in the spring. Of course he does. She's at the last stage acceptance. I wonder if this episode has some meaning to it. Did one of the cast crew lose a pet or a loved one? I'd like to know. Rainbow Dash gets ready to read a book to Tank but I don't think its just for him *Winks*. This ends the episode.
Good Points (What can I say it was good):
- It shows how to cope with death even though the animal didn't die in it I have a feeling they had that in mind. - "I'll fly" was a good song. - The ending was great. You know the weekend I lost my cat I held a memorial for her. I didn't take her home but it helped me cope. - The "Open clear skies" part. Abbott and Costello would be proud Hasbro XD. - I like how they added the 5 stages of grief. Very well done Hasbro
- Just the fact that Rainbow Dash thought it was okay to try and stop winter.
This episode got me teary eyed not because it had a lot of feeling but it reminded me of my last days with my cat. Hasbro this episode gets a 10/10. Anyway tomorrow will be "Appleoosa's most wanted"
Last Edit: Oct 15, 2019 19:22:11 GMT -8 by djlamar2
*Sighs* well this episode was.... Its... what can I say that won't sound awful? The premise is promising just not executed very well. All its about is a pony who thinks he's bad luck and a town who thinks he is. Its a good idea for a story but again not executed all that well. Anyway here's
Appleloosa's Most wanted:
The episode opens up as the cmc are with Applejack at the Appleloosa rodeo. Apparently Brayburn (Yes that Brayburn from the one episode with the buffalo) hurt himself while training and asked Applejack to cover for him. The Cutie Mark crusaders tagged along to *Sighs* Get their cutie marks. The sheriff wants everyone to look out for a pony. A pony by the name of "Troubleshoes". Now see this could have made for a great episode if he was a criminal and not a misunderstood pony. This opens the theme as we see a shadowy figure.
As the episode opens back up everypony is getting ready even Applejack. Oh boy they lost the cmcs. Not good. Right where you left them *Rolls his eyes*. They won't wander off again? Uh huh. How much you want to bet they will. The stack of haybales almost crush them and Applejack decides its too dangerous for them to compete. Its happened again. Troubleshoes has struck again.
Here's what I think would have been better. 1. Make him a criminal and have the cmc show him the error of his ways or 2. Have another pony who looks like him cause the trouble and he gets blamed for it. If you picked 1 of those two ideas as the plot the answer is 3. NONE OF THE ABOVE! The pony playing the harmonica was funny I'll admit.
There's an uproar going on about Troubleshoes. Notorious outlaw? *Sighs* If only. Cancel the rodeo? Nope. So the cmcs still want to compete and Applejack sends them home since its too dangerous with a criminal on the loose. Brayburn promises not to let them out of his sight.
He falls asleep and they escape to go find Troubleshoes. As they continue they get lost after finding a footprint. Applejack comes in from the rain and find out the girls have gone missing. They tell the sheriff about what happened and he suspects Troubleshoes is behind it.
Back with the girls they are still lost and find a house. It belongs to a certain pony. Bet you can't guess who. Its Troubleshoes. He's not a criminal at all. See he thinks he's bad luck. We know a certain G1 pony who thought the same thing. Upside down horseshoe? Uh that's superstition buddy. Anyway the reason he's causing all these problems is he loves the rodeo. He doesn't mean any harm just wants to have a good time. You know we already know that a cutie mark just symbolizes what their good at, But what's that got to do with fooling around?
See there's another thing that would have made this story better. Them listening to him when they got back. *Sighs* They catch him. Well that went badly. He didn't run off with them. *Snickers* Okay I have to admit him breaking the bed is funny. They break him out and decide to show him the lighter side of his cutie mark by disguising him as a clown. Now see this is why the episode could have been good. If they had listened and let him try to be a clown. They tell him that he was looking at the cutie mark the wrong way. He was made to be a rodeo clown. The judges weren't laughing at him (Well sorta) they were laughing because he was acting like a clown.
He decides to try it out and he's a hit. After the show he gets water dumped on him and is revealed. They get ready to arrest him but then he confesses to everything he has done. Except kidnapping. See this would have been better if it was like with Sundance.
Applejack punishes them for running off again and they are still upset that they didn't get a cutie mark which Applejack says isn't it nice to help someone anyway and they agree it is. They then ask if they can stop. Applejack goes Big Mac by saying nope to end the episode.
- Troubleshoes finding out what his cutie mark meant. - Just watching him finally being a clown.
- The premise. Not the fact they thought he was a criminal. No the fact they kept saying he was and in the end he wasn't.
I'm sorry but the whole episode was not what I thought it'd be. 6.5/10
Anyway Next is "Make new friends but keep Discord". Now this episode makes sense.
Another Discord episode YES! But not only that but a certain gloopy substance is also seen. What is it? Here's:
Make new friends but keep Discord:
As the episode opens Fluttershy and Discord are having their morning tea. Talking about his antics. Fluttershy met a new friend while going to see the breezies. Her name? Treehugger. Apparently Fluttershy got an invitation to the grand galloping gala and was told she could bring a friend. Of course she invited Treehugger figuring since Discord is reformed Celestia would send one to him as well.
This makes Discord upset. It makes sense he would be upset I would be too. They don't finish their morning tea and Discord says they are gonna have to skip it this time to open the theme.
The episode opens back up and Discord asks around to see if anypony has asked someone to the gala. Of course Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Applejack asked Sweetie Belle, Scoot-a-loo and Applebloom to be theirs.
He goes to sugarcube corner and he's hiding in a box all "Metal Gear Solid" style. Now that's funny. Especially when that exclamation mark appears over the box when Pinkie Pie knows its him. He asks her who she's bringing to the gala and thinking its him he orders a ton of sweets. But of course she invited Maud her sister. Discord doesn't want any of them and sees Fluttershy with Treehugger and leaves.
He meets them outside and she introduces Treehugger to Discord. You know. I'm getting a Shaggy vibe from this character.
Discord goes to his dimension to mope but a pony comes to give him his invitation from the princess. See the reason why he didn't get it when the others did is because the pony got lost. Discord decides on who he's going to bring.
At the gala everypony is there and Twilight Sparkle is helping with the festivities. So you want to know who Discord brought with him? Well let me show you a video first and you can guess. www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJXWNV2wGu4. Can you guess? That's right the smooze. Except he's much smaller and is now green.
You know what could have been cooler? Have the song from the movie playing at some point. *Sighs* If only. He has a thing for shiny things which won't bode well later on. Twilight Sparkle asks Discord about why he brought him and Discord says their old friends. By the way the more the smooze eats the bigger he gets.
He finds Fluttershy and Treehugger. They completely ignore him. Treefriend XD. Yep definitely have a Shaggy vibe from this girl XD. Discord says his oldest bestest friend isn't Fluttershy its smooze. Smooze is still hungry. Discord locks the smooze outside. He continues to interrupt Fluttershy's and Treehugger's good times. Well I see Rarity has met the smooze up close and personal XD.
Now he locks the smooze in a room full of jewels. bad idea. Uh Jealousy much Discord? Now for some stand-up comedy. A Rodney Dangerfield reference. I wonder if they wanted him to say "No respect, no respect at all" XD. Oh boy that doesn't look good. You're the most basic of jokes. Good one Maud XD. See even Pinkie Pie agrees that was funny. Uh oh the smooze escaped and he's big. See this is where they should've put "Nothing can stop the smooze" in because it kinda looks like that scene except in a castle.
Where are the flutter ponies when you need them? Treehugger thinks she knows how to stop the smooze. She uses her vibes to stop him. I guess her vibes are as powerful as utter flutter. Well Discord is mad. Now he's snapped and threatens to send her into a dimension that isn't so nice. SOCK PUPPETS! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! Fluttershy tells him he's still her friend but she can have other friends too just like Discord can as well. He sees her point and releases Treehugger. Discord apologizes to Treehugger and the Smooze.
Despite everything that's happened Celestia sees this Gala as a complete success. That's why she invited Discord because they're always so bland as we saw the first time they went. This ends the episode.
- Discord being his chaotic self again. - Fluttershy's point.
Well we finally get to see where else this map leads our friends and we see one of the most grumpiest characters come back *Cranky Doodle growls* Not you cranky. Here comes:
The Lost treasure of Griffonstone:
The episode opens up as Pinkie Pie and Gummy are baking. Just as they start her cutie mark shines. The map is calling. Gummy might not do well. This opens the theme.
Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash were called on a mission to Griffonstone as the episode opens back up. Bet you can't guess who lives there? One clue. She was Rainbow Dash's friend until that one episode. That's right Gilda. Twilight Sparkle tells the tale of how once Griffonstone was full of greed till an idol called the idol of boriaz was found. Then everyone was at peace till their king was gone and the idol was lost.
Twilight Sparkle wants both of them to scout it out and since only Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie were called she can't go instead. They head to Griffonstone and Rainbow Dash is reading a book Twilight Sparkle gave them. They head up the mountain only to find its a total dump. By the way this is also followed with Twilight Sparkle's voice being overheard.
Everyone there just like Gilda is mean. Wow maybe that's why she was so cranky. Oh hey Gilda. She tells them they don't have a king and the idol was lost during the reign of their last king as told by grandpa gruff. He'll only tell them for 2 bits. Oh so that's what happened. Yep just as grumpy as ever.
Rainbow Dash decides to go looking for the idol while Pinkie Pie goes to the library.
Rainbow Dash finds a guide but she'll only help if Rainbow Dash hands over some bits. Back with Pinkie Pie she talks to Gilda. Not much of a library. Gilda is trying to sell what's supposed to be griffon scones something they're known for making. Pinkie Pie is told no singing. Wow. No parties either. My question too "what is this place". Pinkie Pie tries a scone and its so hard she chips a tooth on it. Pinkie Pie decides to help.
Meanwhile Rainbow Dash and her "Guide" make it to the gorge where the idol fell. Meanwhile back at Pinkie Pie tells Gilda her scones are missing something. Not friendship, well that too but baking powder. So she does care. Yes we did.
Flying is definitely not a good idea Rainbow Dash. She decides to repel down instead. The rope snaps and Rainbow Dash is trapped in the gorge and since she can't give any more bits her guide is gone too.
Pinkie Pie sees Rainbow Dash and tells her she can solve Griffonstone's problem. Well she did give her a rope XD. Back with Gilda and Pinkie Pie asks her to help and has Gilda remember when they were friends. This takes her back to the memories of flight school. Rainbow Dash stopped the bullies and Gilda now remembers why they were friends in the first place.
They come to where Rainbow Dash is and Gilda saves her and they see the idol. Gilda has to make a decision. Save the idol or her friends. I have one thing to say about this part and I think the paladin in the last crusade said it best "You have chosen wisely". Gilda says Rainbow Dash is more important and they return to Griffonstone to show that friendship is better than some old idol which I agree. Gilda took their advice and their cutie marks shine to show they finished their mission along with a promo for griffon scones by Pinkie Pie XD. They head home to end the episode after promising to return. Also we already know how it turned out.
- Seeing that once Gilda and Rainbow Dash were once friends. - Gilda being nice for once at the end.
Well we knew they'd reach this point in the series in the 5th season so what's it about? A wedding. No not one of the mane 6. Somepony different. Here comes:
Slice of Life:
The episode opens up as Cranky Doodle and Matilda talking about their wedding which is supposed to be tomorrow. But thanks to a typo by a certain somepony its today. Derpy hooves XD. He goes to see her to open the theme.
As soon as the episode opens back up Twilight Sparkle can be seen running. To the wedding? Uh nope. Derpy talks to a pony that looks like someone out of a Dr. Who movie which I think that's where Hasbro got the idea. Well that's what you get for using a younger pony to do it Derpy. He has a time machine... Definitely a Dr. Who reference.
See those flowers in that case there? They'll play a major roll later. So Derpy tells him she sent the wrong date to everyone so the doctor... You know what I'm just gonna call him Dr. Hooves from here on out.... goes to get his tuxedo. He goes to see Rarity but of course she's gone to... but where? He sees Pon3 and asks her.
She takes him to a bowling alley to ask experts. They say they'll only help if he gets a strike. More Dr. Who references XD.
Meanwhile the mane 6 can be seen outside conversing. About a friendship problem or a monster we won't know till later. One of the ponies has to play at the wedding and she can't get ready knowing there might be a monster loose. Well Pinkie Pie is busy too Matilda. Sorry. ITS A.... Bugbear? Okay then. She asks another pony to organize a party and she agrees. That bugbear is causing a mess.
Derpy apologizes to Matilda and she says she needs flowers and they're not in yet. Jeez I haven't seen someone overreact since Rarity did that one episode all those seasons ago.
Bon-Bon and Lyra heartstrings are setting up the wedding and the bugbear is mentioned. Bon-Bon has a secret identity.
7-10 split that's a tough one. Oh boy this might not end well. Derpy is gonna use Dr. Hooves Flameless fireworks even though he said they were untested. Matilda is fretting over her wedding. Oh my gosh its the creature from the pilot . His name is Steven Magnus and he's a close friend of Cranky. He's still an awesome character after all these seasons . Aww how touching. The wedding is everything. Meanwhile the pony from before is practicing and Pon3 is seen too. I'm guessing their sisters. They both play a song but different from their own.
Eventually they make it work and just in time the wedding is about to begin. They leave and bring everyone with them by running into them. There goes Cranky's wig. Gummy's part is so funny. They make it. Celestia and Luna are also there and they forgot to bring a gift XD. Even Cadence and Shining Armor are there. Pretty cool. By the way Shining Armor always cries at weddings according to Cadence. Derpy says they look good.
The bugbear has been defeated so now they can go on with the wedding without any worries. Also I don't blame Lyra for being upset. The wedding is about to begin. Cranky is once again bald. Steven Magnus gives him a piece of his hair to replace it. Derpy locks out the mane 6 and the wedding gets underway. Hey that was cool they referenced the secondary cast right there . The flameless fireworks are set off by love. Pretty cool. Twilight Sparkle says she's lucky to live in that town and she loves them all. She hugs all of them and Rainbow Dash yelps because she hugged her where the bugbear bit her to end the episode XD.
Good Points (No bad ones actually. This was a decent 100th episode. Kinda reminds me of that Amazing world of Gumball episode. And yes I know this came before that):
- Everyone that we haven't seen in awhile come back for this episode even some which are background characters. - They did a wonderful job referencing themselves in this episode.
10/10. Next up is *Sighs* Princess Spike which will be tomorrow. That episode is just ehh.
Last Edit: Oct 16, 2019 19:59:55 GMT -8 by djlamar2
*Sighs* This episode has some funny parts but sheesh it has some stupid parts too. You know what could've made this better? If Spike became his giant self again. Anyway here's:
The episode opens up as a summit is being held by Luna, Celestia, Cadence and Twilight Sparkle. One that brings together creatures from all across Equestria and beyond. We even see griffons. Cadence has built a statue of gemstones from each of their lands. Twilight Sparkle said it took many restless nights to prepare this and this is why she's tired. Spike gets to say something... only to be interrupted by the ponies saying they love the princesses. This opens the theme.
As the episode opens back up Spike is picking up stuff.... *Pfft* Okay where was Pinkie Pie when we needed her? She could've warned Spike of a door opening. Anyway the door was opened by Cadence who tells Spike he is to make sure that Twilight Sparkle gets her rest for the upcoming event. This will be a problem soon and you'll see why. 3 straight days? Wow what happened to the Twilight Sparkle who got mad at Applejack for taking up that much responsibility.
Yes I get it she's the "Princess of friendship" but come on. She could have asked for help from the other princesses.
As Spike stands guard there's no problems.... till a bird comes to sing a song. Wait.... Isn't a bird chirping supposed to be relaxing? Sure some can be annoying but this is a robin. Robins have beautiful voices. Anyway Spike tells it to knock it off but it doesn't listen and flies in and rests on Twilight's head. It takes Spike telling it she's a princess. The next one I understand. There's a polo game going on outside and the ponies there are making a racket. Spike asks them to take their game elsewhere. This will be a problem later.
More noise. This time its a gardener trimming the trees. There's one problem. These are known as "Dragon sneeze trees" and I bet you can't guess why they're called that. See the reason he's trimming them is because they're too top heavy. I can see why he's doing it. This so called public hazard will come into play along with something else as well. You know this reminds me of an episode from another cartoon different plot same premise. The cartoon? Code name: kids next door.
I don't exactly remember the name of the episode but Nigel Uno is tired from a meeting (Not like this one however) and he goes to bed to get ready for the next day of it. They try everything to keep him asleep. The one thing that wakes him up. Number 5 sighing XD.
Back to the episode. At the mention of Twilight Sparkle's name the gardener stops his work so she can get some rest. This makes Spike think he can handle it all. *Facepalms* This will be a problem too later. Next up another worker is using a jackhammer. He says there's a pipe that's busted and if he doesn't fix it it'll break even more. And he stops too but he says its on Spike's head if it breaks. This again will come into effect later.
With a job well done Spike decides to take a rest only to have two delegates from other lands come up quarreling. Also "Princess Spike" really? *Sighs and Facepalms again* Ow. I need to stop doing that. Its gonna leave a bruise. The problem is their supposed to give speeches but for some reason they both have it at the same time. He asks her and she speaks incoherently. She's like me when I'm tired. Speaking nonsense I mean.
Well this is a fix. You know Spike you could have asked Cadence for advice. Now see this is how you handle things Spike. They agree to share the room. This will also cause a problem later as well.
And here's where the first problem occurs. Since they are sharing they can't hear what they're saying. Oh sure. YELLING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS IS KEEPING THINGS QUIET SPIKE! Now Spike takes this whole princess Spike business a little too far.
He goes to meet with some of the ponies as per Twilight's schedule. Meeting with the pony about the statue and the repairman. Cadence says he's taking this whole "Princess duties" a little too personal. I agree Cadence. And yes he is enjoying it a little too much.
Ugh. By order of the princess? *Gets ready to facepalm but remembers the pain* Seriously? He is taking it way too far.
Now the gems he's eating aren't from the statue but again Spike is taking this whole princess thing way, way too far. Cadence is right Spike being a princess (Or ruler) is a lot of work. He is so taking this thing too far.
Okay so remember how I said all the stuff Spike ordered to be stopped or moved will be a problem? Well the polo ball the polo ponies have hits a dragon sneeze tree which hits a row of them in a domino fashion (Which is why them being too top heavy was a problem) which hits the busted pipe which breaks it. Cadence stops the leak and thankfully the statue is safe.... Uh wait during the water coming in a dragon sneeze tree can be seen coming in. How much you want to bet.... Yep. Spike breaks the statue by sneezing. This is a mess. They all want to argue to Twilight Sparkle and go to see her.
Remember how I said a sigh woke Nigel Uno? Well Spike's sigh does the same. I guess a sigh is the same as a pindrop in newer cartoons. Spike confesses to taking the role too seriously. He apologizes to her. I would be miffed too. My words exactly Cadence and Twilight.
Spike apologizes and gives a speech about friendship. They help him rebuild the statue. They forgive him. They give him a bouquet of flowers from the dragon sneeze tree. He starts to sneeze and I think we can all guess what happened to end the episode.
Good points :
- The lesson. - That he finally realized he was taking this Princess business a little too far.
- THE WHOLE EPISODE! This is about as worse as the Equestria games episode.
I'm sorry but the episode (Despite its funny moments) just was dumb. Sorry Hasbro but 5.5/10.
Next up is a good episode. Sure its not a great episode but its way better than this one. Party Pooped.
Well this episode was a shocker to most people and at first to me. This and "A friend in deed" are my top episodes. Along with season 4's episode. Anyway here's:
As the episode opens up they are talking about the yaks that are coming from yakyakistan. See they want peace with the yaks and the only way to do that is to befriend the prince. They have asked Pinkie Pie since she knows how to throw a party. The yaks arrive. They prepared a feast fit for yaks but they taste it and it doesn't taste like yak food. This makes Twilight nervous to open the theme. Also by the way when the yaks get mad they destroy or smash as they say.
The episode opens back up and its a mess. Obviously only Pinkie Pie read the book and does this remind anyone of tweety bird XD. So they live up north huh? Well yaks do live in the mountains so it makes sense. They ask her to show the yaks around. These next sections will show how they feel about how the ponies accommodate them.
Applejack has found hay that's almost like hay found in yakyakistan to make beds for them. Of course its not and the yaks get mad.
She has her animals dressed up as animals from yakyakistan and it works for awhile till a headpiece falls off and the yaks get mad. Sheesh is there anything these yaks do like?
Rarity shows them some fabric which she's sure they'll love..... and we already knows what's about to happen.
Rainbow Dash brings in a snowcloud to pour snow on them. Also "Hold your frown face" XD. Of course this doesn't taste like.... Uh you get the idea.
At the castle they try to decide on what to do and this worries them all. Gosh they caused a lot of damage. If the party's not perfect then more smashing. They have confidence in Pinkie Pie but she looks like she's gonna go crazy any minute.
Yep she's definitely losing it. Pinkie Pie decides to go to Yakyakistan to find out what they did wrong.
While she leaves Twilight Sparkle shows them sugarcube corner where the party is being held. Well Pinkie Pie is gone and now no one knows where she went. Eww apparently Applejack found one of Granny Smith's dentures. Pinkie Pie left a note telling them not to fret and where she went.
Uh oh the cake. Of course its not up to yak standards. Meanwhile Pinkie Pie sets out for Yakyakistan. Also talking to a complete stranger. Sheep have blocked the road. She runs into Cherries Jubilee and her crew. They're tired from counting cherries but agree to take her to Yakyakistan. That's a lot of cherries. More monologue. Uh oh Cherries Jubilee and her crew fell asleep and are about to fall into a ravine. This part cracked me up because of what Cherries was dreaming of. That was close.
Back with the others and the yaks Spike is distracting... err entertaining them by playing a piano. But how much you want to guess the yaks won't be happy soon? When Spike steps away from the piano it keeps playing since its a player piano. Well now not only are they mad but Prince Rutherford declares war.
Twilight Sparkle starts frantically looking around for Pinkie Pie and the others are trying to make the party.
Back with Pinkie Pie she has made it to the mountains. By the way they didn't plummet to their doom the wonderbolts saved them. She's with Cadence who showed her the rest of the way. In sugarcube corner they try to find ways to make the yaks stay and find Pinkie Pie's hiding place.
Pinkie Pie runs into a monster and is chased gets on a snowboard which takes her all the way...
They are stumbling around in the dark as we get back to the others. They're in the secret room Pinkie Pie has full of all her party planning stuff. Ooh we know Twilight Sparkle doesn't like quesidillas now.
.... back to Ponyville. That's right Pinkie Pie slid all the way back. She then realizes what they did wrong thanks to her friends.
The yaks are stalled by the same sheep that blocked the tracks. In the words of Pinkie Pie: THANK YOU SHEEP!
Pinkie Pie tells Prince Rutherford they were wrong trying to make Ponyville like Yakyakistan and say that they should have done what they do. This makes him decide not to declare war. They are now friends for 1,000 moons . Celestia is impressed and Pinkie Pie and the prince hug to end the episode.
- The entire episode. Sure it had some bland spots but it shows that trying to make someone feel at home in your country shouldn't mean making your home like theirs. - The yaks were great.
- I have to admit that the answer was kinda simple which is somewhat boring.
9.5/10 way better than the last episode. Next up is amending fences.
You know I wondered what happened to Twilight's friends since season 1 and this episode although simple isn't too bad. Here comes:
The episode opens up as Spike is complaining about doing dishes. You and me both buddy. Spike mentions that although she's the princess of friendship Twilight Sparkle didn't start out so good. This makes her freak out. This makes her decide to go to Canterlot and asks Spike to bring a list of her friend's names to open the theme.
As the episode opens back up they head to Canterlot. They enter the old library where this all began. They see everything is still there even Spike's gift to Moondancer. Wow Twilight Sparkle you left this place in a mess. She decides to make it up to her friends. Oh and did you hear that name? Sound familiar? Lyra Heartstrings is the only one we saw since season 1. You know the episode entitled "Slice of Life". Yep that Lyra Heartstrings. Wow Twilight Sparkle stayed up all night doing research where to find her old friends.
She stops by Minuet's house and boy is she surprised to see her. Photo op time too I guess. They decide to go see Lemon Hearts and Twinkle shy to catch up on old times.
They talk about what they thought about her coronation. See told you Lyra Heartstrings lives in Ponyville now. I guess Twilight kinda forgot. Twilight Sparkle apologizes for taking their friendship for granted. They understand though.
They go to the school where they went to school together and a flashback is seen. And just like they said there's Lemon Hearts with a beaker stuck on his head. We even see a younger Twilight Sparkle with a younger Moondancer working on a potion.
This makes Twilight Sparkle ask about Moondancer. They go to see her and she's not happy to see Twilight Sparkle but who could blame her. She did leave her. Twilight follows her to find out what's bugging her. First a library.
There was a party once but this was during the season 1 premier and we already know what happened then. This makes Twilight Sparkle realize what she's done and decides to make it up to Moondancer.
She walks up to her and talks but is told to be quiet. A quiet bubble huh? She keeps bugging her and Moondancer gets annoyed. Using a spell Twilight Sparkle appears in a book to apologize to Moondancer. This impresses Moondancer and she asks how she did it. They talk awhile and Twilight Sparkle takes her to the old library and let's her have it. Moondancer tells Twilight she has no time for friends kinda like Twilight Sparkle did when this series began.
She tells her she could teach Moondancer Haycard's methods. Twilight Sparkle and Moondancer meet their friends at the cafe only for Moondancer to be a party pooper. Moondancer leaves and says that she did give it a chance and it didn't work out. Twilight Sparkle defeated leaves after envisioning what it must have been like when she didn't show at the party. But who is it she's getting?
Minuet comes to the library and notices they're gone but are seen coming back with Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Pie apparently knows Tails' flying moves XD. And Minuet knows Pinkie Pie. Oh yeah that's right she was a bridesmaid at Cadence's wedding. While they prepare Twilight and Spike get Moondancer and entice her with books. They have thrown a party for Moondancer. Twilight Sparkle tells her why she doesn't like parties anymore because she left Moondancer when she needed her most. And she's right. Poor Moondancer . They surprise her with some great gifts and shows she does have friends.
One of the gifts is Twilight Sparkle's library and Moondancer forgives her. The party goes as planned and they leave after promising to come back. Spike gives her the present that he meant to give at the last party they were supposed to have. Its a picture of her and her friends. Moondancer goes out to have fun to end the episode.
Good Points (You know even though this had some flaws it wasn't the episode it was Twilight herself so this time no bad points):
- Twilight Sparkle realizing she left her friends from Canterlot in the dark after leaving for Ponyville. - Finally seeing her original friends after 4 seasons - The ending. Just wow . Good job Hasbro.
10/10. Tomorrow its time to see the princess of the night yet again. This time its a focused episode. Do princesses dream of magic sheep is tomorrow.
This episode as I've said in the past is good. Great to see Luna again. Anyway here's:
Do princesses dream of magic sheep:
As the episode opens up we see the mane 6 running towards Luna. She has a dark mist near her called the Tantabus. What does it do? It turns her into Nightmare Moon. Oh no. They use their new rainbow powers and for awhile Luna is winning till the Tantabus leaves her to escape through a hole. They win and Luna wakes up and she says her dream ended happily and this is not good to open the theme.
As the episode opens back up all the ponies and their pets are having a spa day. They're all tired but why? Well they all had nightmares the night before. Also this causes some funny things to happen like Rarity sticking Opalsence with a comb and Applejack trying to brush Winona with Gummy. All their dreams had one thing in common: A blue smoke monster. They decide to tell Luna about it since she is the keeper of dreams. Well all of them but Spike.
Luna comes in and asks which of them saw the blue smoke. Well Fluttershy she is the princess of the night after all. WE GET IT SPIKE SHEESH! Luna tells them what this blue smoke is and it escaped. She also tells them the more dreams it enters the stronger it gets. And if it grows any stronger it can enter the real world making it a nightmare. *Shudders* The very thought gives me chills. So its like Freddy Crueger without the whole killing you in your sleep thing.
They decide to have a slumber party so she can stop the Tantabus. I feel sorry for Luna in this episode even more than "Luna Eclipsed" because she thinks only she can handle it and a later thing that we'll get to. Riiiight Spike you'll stay awake. Pinkie Pie XD. She goes into the dream world of each of them to find Tantabus. Like always we'll go through all the nightmares.
She has a dream about her dresses which turn into monsters thanks to Tantabus. Of course it doesn't stay long after Luna enters and helps Rarity.
This is nice. Pinkie Pie having a dream like number 4 of the kids next door would. Of course thanks to Tantabus it becomes a nightmare too. Turning all the cake into monsters. Then of course she dreams about.... Oh no. She saw everyone didn't she? This might be a problem later on.
This is nice too. She dreams about Angel being bigger than her and taking care of her instead. Of course the Tantabus turns Angel into a demon bunny. Luna saves her only for the Tantabus to escape yet again.
Seems like Applejack has another prized apple. The nightmare? Her trees and fruit getting rotten. Of course it escapes to another dream
Oh man Rainbow Dash is surrounded by Changelings. Wait she likes this sorta dream? So how will the Tantabus turn it into a nightmare? *Sees flowers* That's not too bad. *Hears them sing creepily* Okay definitely a nightmare *Shudders* It escapes into....
Her dream is about a library. Now nothing bad here. Yikes monster books. *Cries* I thought that reading books was supposed to be enjoyable? Luna fights off the Tantabus only to have them wake up and say it was scary. Unfortunately this isn't the end. Oh and remember Pinkie Pie dreaming of ice cream and all the ponies? Well now we have a bigger problem. Thanks to Pinkie Pie...
Pinkie Pie: HEY!
No offense but this is kinda your fault. The Tantabus can now enter other ponies dreams. Also poor Luna . Very true Fluttershy. A shared dream might work. She agrees but isn't sure if she can handle all of it at once. She creates it. Oh hello giant Derpy Hooves and apparently she can speak cat now. This is one freaky dream. Whoa Mac is now a unicorn. Hey its his dream too so why not. With everyone there its hard to control the Tantabus.
The mane 6 has to help her. Yikes this gives new meaning to "Monster house". The mane 6 use their dreams to become something they can only imagine including flutterbat, Zap and I guess Applejack is stronger. And here comes the weirdest part of this episode. Big Mac becoming an alicorn. Again its his dream so why not. Uh Applejack I think we'll know.
The ponies are unsure they can do anything since in the real world they're just regular ponies. See this makes more sense than that one episode a season ago. I'm looking at you "Daring Don't". Hello Spike the knight. They all fight together using their dream powers. Again anything is possible in a dream. I should know. Uh oh Tantabus just got bigger when Luna said what she said.
Luna created the creature so she could have the same nightmare every night so she can be reminded of all the trouble she caused as Nightmare Moon. They tell her to stop feeling guilty. Twilight Sparkle has a point Luna . She's finally able to control the Tantabus. They all wake up to realize what Luna had done to stop the Tantabus. Aww. What a fitting end to an awesome episode. Sleep well princess Luna you earned it. This ends the episode.
Good points (Not a single bad point because it was awesome):
- The return of Luna. - The Tantabus was defeated when Luna stopped feeling guilty which is a good lesson. Feeling guilty about something just makes it worse. - The whole episode was a dream. See Hasbro? You can make things fictional. - The ending was sweet. Seeing Luna sleeping peacefully after that battle. She earned it after making herself feel guilty.
10/10. Next up is another okay episode. Canterlot Boutique
Canterlot Boutique isn't a bad episode just bland in some parts. Anyway here's:
The episode opens up as Rarity is looking at her fabrics at her store. She's also waiting on a package. Opalsence playing with his toy made it sound like her bell over her door. Pinkie Pie comes up to the window. Apparently she's tried out a new recipe for cupcakes :X. Cinnamon and cilantro in cupcakes I'll pass thanks. Apparently on the way Pinkie Pie ran past the post pony and gave him one which made him sick so she had to deliver her letter. Another cupcake Pinkie Pie eww. She has a spot in Canterlot and can now open a boutique there. Pinkie Pie goes off to throw up to open the theme.
When the episode opens back up they arrive in Canterlot and see her new boutique. I like it too. Pinkie Pie XD. Apparently she has a new manager. Her name is Sassy Saddles. I guess that makes sense. I bet they will never ever ever close (Saying sarcastically). Whoa she's even more organized than you are Twilight. Well it is Canterlot so everyone has to love royalty since most of them kinda are. Rarity made a dress inspired by the stained glass that is now in the castle. Not bad girl. They're gonna sell it at the boutique. TLC stands for time love and cotour not what you said Pinkie XD.
Sassy Saddles butts in to talk about it. Twilight Sparkle says she will wear it. Somebody pinch you? Okay. *Pinches her*
Rarity: I didn't mean literally.
Sassy Saddles continues to butt in. Yes she did Applejack. Good question Applejack. They show it. SASSY STOP STEALING RARITY'S SPOTLIGHT! SHEESH! I like that name. Rarity's royal Regalia. Reign in Stain. Of course Sassy Saddles doesn't think so and changes it. *Growls*
Rarity: Calm yourself Dj. Its okay.
She's stealing your spotlight Rarity. That's not okay. Princess dress? Isn't that kinda the same? 100 orders? Sheesh. Uh oh she's miffed. I would be too. Oh boy. The next day Sassy Saddles asks why she sent them away and Rarity says she wants it her way. She sings "Rules of Rarity" which is pretty good I admit. Gosh Rarity's singing voice is awesome as always even when she's singing by herself . Sassy is overworking her . Rarity gets inspiration from her jewels. That's our Rarity
ITS HER BOUTIQUE SASSY NOT YOURS! *Growls*
Rarity: Dj. Calm yourself. Its fine.
The customer doesn't like it. Who cares what the customer says though. She sings the reprise. Now I'm sad . That's way too many Sassy and all I have to ask where's the TLC? Poor Rarity. You're working her too hard. Give her a break Sassy. NO!
Rarity: Dj... Actually get it out I feel its needed.
Thanks. THIS IS NOT THE RULES OF RARITY SASSY! Rarity decides to close Canterlot Carousel. Well its your fault Sassy. They buy all of the dresses but not the princess dress since its been discontinued. Now that's awesome . Ooh that's the Rarity we know and love . I love this verse very very Rarity indeed.
She decides not to close the boutique and Sassy Saddles decides to leave and take the rules of Rarity to her new job but can't since they can only be applied at Canterlot Carousel which Rarity let's Sassy stay as long as she lives by them. Another pony comes in asking for the princess dress. All I can say is how is that gonna fit her XD. This ends the episode.
- "Rules of Rarity" was great and showed off more of Rarity's voice actors singing - Sassy finally realizing that she was doing things the way she wanted.
- Sassy Saddles need I say more?
8.5/10 Not a bad episode but bland and just irritating. Next up Scare Master. Love this upcoming episode and it is close to Halloween/Nightmare Night so its fitting I should review this now
BOO! Well I couldn't start this episode off without that now could I? This episode is pretty good and shows that Fluttershy does have the Halloween/Nightmare Night spirit in her. Anyway here's:
The episode opens up as Fluttershy gets ready for Nightmare Night by boarding up all the windows and hiding but Angel wants carrots which means she'll have to go out on Nightmare night. This opens the theme.
As the episode opens back up Fluttershy looks for carrots. She runs into Big Mac and Granny Smith who's getting ready to set up a spooky corn maze. I for one love corn mazes. Ooh that sounds like fun Granny . Wow Granny Smith has a dark side. She loves scaring ponies.
Fluttershy arrives at Twilight Sparkle's castle. She runs into Spike who's dressed as a two headed dragon. Spike talks about how fun it might be to join her friends. Ghost stories classic. Typical Rarity XD. They help her get ready. She reminds them of the time she sang in front of everyone. Yeah that was brave I admit.
Rarity helps her pick out a costume and every one of them she doesn't like because of the view around her might be blocked or she could trip. I'd take that masquerade costume. She decides on the dress. Whoa awesome costumes girls. Pinkie Pie that's not it but good try XD. They play pin the feathers on Nightmare Moon. Fluttershy says she can't see to defend herself if someone comes up behind her with a blindfold on.
Next up is a personal favorite of mine. Bobbing for apples. Again she's afraid she won't see anything if anything scary comes. Candy time. She won't even go for the candy because she's afraid her mouth becomes glues shut and she can't scream for help. She's ruining the party. Come on girl. They suggest Fluttershy make the scary part so it won't frighten her so much. She agrees to do it. She tells them to meet her at the cottage in an hour rather creepily.
They arrive and no one is there except Fluttershy's voice. They all have a seat and Fluttershy tells them not to be afraid. She's trying so hard to make it scary. Nice try Fluttershy. *Sighs* This would be scary if she were trying harder. I'm not even scared. E for effort I must say. Poor Fluttershy.
With some influence from Angel she decides to try harder. What is it? You'll see .
At the apple farm they get ready to go inside the haunted corn maze. Yep my idea of a corn maze. Love the way it looks. Uhh who's that lurking in the shadows? Oh Big Mac. Okay what's that sound? Way to be a killjoy Rainbow Dash sheesh. Eyeballs yikes! *Laughs* Good old Granny Smith. Okay is that you Big Mac? Ahh ghosts. Well Fluttershy was right about the dress. They fall into a hole. So Applejack had nothing to do with this? Oh boy.
Whew there's Granny Smith. *Screams* Its not Granny Smith. Granny Smith had nothing to do with it. Or Big Mac. Oh boy what's that rumbling? Ahh a seamonster. They run only to get caught in a web. After escaping they run outside thinking its safe only to run into.... FLUTTERBAT! Ahhh! Looks like she's still got that in her. Wait why did she stop? Oh it was all a ruse. Well it wasn't just her it was her animals too. Great job Fluttershy . The birds were the ghosts, Angel was the scary figure, the spider made the sticky wall. Og would be proud . And hairy the bear was the monster.
They want her to do this every year but she decides not to because she doesn't enjoy scaring as much as they do. Good for you Fluttershy. She goes back to her hiding spot to end the episode.
Good Points (And even though Fluttershy did get kinda annoying no bad ones)
- Fluttershy helping with the corn maze - The whole episode. I gotta say it was pretty good. - How all her animal friends helped with the scary parts. - Her coming to terms that she can just be who she is and its fine.
10/10. Great episode for Halloween. Anyway my reviews continue with a good episode that's kinda like those old black and white mystery shows "Rarity investigates"
