So! New episode!

- Scoots left ambiguous about her flying future, but confirmed as pretty much unable to do it now, and is "lagging" behind her peers.
- Steroid pony makes a comeback.
- Granny Smith and Scoots are a running gag now, it seems.
- Scoots is not a hobo.
- Dash is excite.
- Diamond Tiara is a huge bitch, as usual.
- Silver Spoon threw away any redeeming qualities from previous episodes and copied Diamond Tiara's behavior perfectly.
- Moral is pretty damn good and solid.
- Song is... okay. Doesn't seem very catchy to me, but is very pretty to watch.
- New animations and effects are top notch, excluding maybe miss Harshwhinny. Maybe it's that she's the first pony we've seen 'angry' in such a way, but her facial expressions were uncanny.
- A new promo for the next episode came out. Hype get! Watch the 0:10 mark carefully.

And now for something completely different: Commentaries!

And for something totally CMC-related, more commentary!
Flight to the finish:

- Cheerilee is excite.
- Her again?
- "I had fun once. It was awful."
- Jeebus what is wrong with her face?
- Those animations look painful.
- And that accent.
- She gives off the vibe of a person who has fallen from grace into the peasantry and wants to bury her sorrows in tequila.
- SUDDENLY, RAINBOW DASH!
- Rainbow Dash is excite.
- Dammit Tiara, one line and I already hate you.
- "Our existence has been degraded to being a pair of idiot-comic-relief characters."
- Snips is a Hub sellout.
- Those new animations seem both uncanny, fluid, meme-exploitable and impressive all at the same time.
- Rarity = style, apparently.
- Nitty Gritty layer? What?
- "All the other coaches are registered sex offenders."
- Toting your own horn 101. She really learned her lesson from last episode, alright.
- Scootaloo, your eyes are dangerously close to exploding there.
- Mrs. Harshwhinny likes ALL things done professionally, if you know what I mean.
- "I'm also a big blue liar."
- Rainbow is still excite.
- "If you aren't as excited as I am, you're dead to me!"
- Smooth save there.
- 2x SAVE COMBO
- Man, the way those two fillies fly off seems... Uncanny.
- "Let's follow the episode's plot!"
- "But we can't accomplish anything! The previous episodes proved so!"
- Brain fart, Sweetie Belle?
- "You know, like a consortium!"
- Yes, we know what races you are.
- That sounds more like a cardiovascular condition.
- Song time! Forward march!
- Endless.gif
- The truly prestigious flag-waving scene.
- Lens flare. *ding*
- "What am I doing with my life?"
- "Secretly, we are all a stallion."
- "We also collect baboon hearts."
- [Homestuck stairs joke]
- How can they eat the whole apples, other than the core, in a single bite? Especially when it's on that stick.
- FTW. GG.
- Technically, that kind of exercise would still work.
- MONTAGEEE!
- Scoots, yo' stairs skills are pathetic.
- Steroid Pony, you're plain pathetic.
- FREEZE FRAME POSE
- Oh hey, a subversion.
- BITCHY MISS BITCH BITCH TIME!
- "I'd co-star in Clockwork Orange if I could."
- Wow, her voice really is grating.
- "Observe our superior butt tattoos."
- It's like they're being paid for every snide comment.
- What the hell are those spaghetti things.
- Jaw_drop.exe
- What, no Dash, don't be stupid, just tell them.
- Dash is excite.
- LET GO OF THAT IDIOT BALL!
- "We're running out of offensive slurs!"
- "Mocking the handicapped, of course!"
- "Get it? Under their wings? It's a clever pun, Silver Spoon. Laugh with me."
- BITCHY BITCH BITCH OVERDOSE!
- Forget other villains, these two are plain vile.
- Scootaloo, let go of that idiot ball.
- "Scoots, you're, like, super crippled."
- Humming-scoot mode, activate!
- "I like tempting fate like this."
- Cringe-worthy performance.
- "That was sssss--ucky."
- And then those two fillies were never seen again.
- MORAL QUANDRY TIME!
- Scootaloo is an airhead.
- Scootaloo, you'd have more luck playing Spelunky.
- Butterfly cameo! For some reason.
- Don't bounce on ponies/luggage, kids.
- "You'll fail epically without me."
- Applejack raised this one well.
- FINE GEEZ!
- Dash is still excite.
- "Are you morons?"
- BITCH BITCH BITCH BITCH!
- Sweetie Bells is saying what everyone's thinking.
- Scootaloo confirmed for not-hobo.
- Feels!
- Wait wait wait.
- Dash, what are you doing!
- You can't be wise and insightful! That's not canon!
- "I'll be ambiguous here so the bronies don't rage."
- Vroom!
- Okay, how did those other two not crash spectacularly by now? I've water skii'd before, this would be infinitely harder.
- Also in b4 Scootaloo scooter cutie mark.
-  > Left hanging long enough.
- Good gals win, yay!
- Go away, bitchponies.
- Ms Harshwhinny is... excite?
- Oh, here it is! Her cutie mark's a coming!
- What the BUCK.
- Seriously?
- Is she THAT oblivious to her scooter skills?
- Since when do cutie marks need the pony to 'know' what their skill is anyway? Half the time they get it without knowing, by doing something.
- Cutie marks are the trolls of pony puberty.
- Oh hey, a new episode promo.
- ...
- Did Fluttershy just.
- Yes she did.
- Excite.

I really enjoyed the episode. But that doesn't matter because I'm too excite for next week!

So apparently horses are a thing here. Wonder if its just the Saddle Arabians, or there are other horses as well.

Spoiler:
FLUTTERHULKOMFGSOFREAKINGPERFECTSOMEBODYPINCHMESOIKNOWTHISISN'TSOMEDREAMORSOMETHINGI'MSOEXCITE!

And then new episode happened.

- Fluttershy's 'power mode' design... I don't know. It's really uncanny looking. Somewhat disappointed about that.
- Mane-iac is top notch and really sells this episode - full ham, crazy eyes, terrible puns! She's also pretty much *the* craziest creature in the show now. Sorry Pinkie/Twilght, you can't beat this level of cray-cray, at least not yet.
- Spike's overall character depiction is improved upon this episode! Lampshades are hung on him in general, and he gets some time in the spotlight. Remember those arguments we've had about "Spike should be left behind" in the season 4 pilot eps? This ep pretty much lampshades and references those moments and then makes a moral out of it. Although I'm sure analysis bronies will analyze the details a lot better than I will, so enough on that.
- Pinkie Pie is a kletpo with superpowers.
- For the first time in ever, Twilight shows magical incompetency! Shock and awe!
- Tornado physics, man. They mock all the other physics, yet are still inferior to Pinkie-mops-with-mane-sliding-upside-down physics.
- Enchanted comic books have terrible DRM policies. I mean, read it once, and thats it? That's not buying, that's rental! Although it does make sense from a business perspective...
- There will be such terrible, glorious fanart of this episode. We all know it.

Also, commentaries, as usual!
Power Ponies:
- Twilight, that's not how you wear a nightcap.
- "Bite me, you're not my real mother!"
- Tragic accident? From the looks of it, she intentionally threw herself off that catwalk, at the one place there wasn't a railing at.
- Insane in the membraneeeee!
- Electro orbs! Why would you keep that in a museum? Wouldn't you keep it in, you know, a power plant? Where it's actually useful?
- Humdrum is worst pony, obviously.
- "The fate of this fictional world within another fictional world depends on me reading this comic!"
- "Of course, we could have hired professionals to do it for us, but you're pretty much free labor."
- Those dragon-feet look awkward.
- AJ: The only pony who would use castle restoration for subliminal advertisement of her apple products.
- Pinkie, remain best pony.
- Spiderpony, even.
- Plot: Now with Roomba capabilities!
- And then Spike got up early for nothing.
- Humdrum is worst scrappy.
- Gee what a strange coincidence that was.
- Pinkie, stop spoiling the episode. And breaking physics with your mane. Again.
- Physics fact: Buckets remain suspended in midair for up to 10 seconds.
- WORST COMIC EVER 0/10.
- Haha, Spike got scammed.
- "We can't have tea and biscuits without our servant to serve it for us!"
- "I... prepared... explosive.... runes..."
- "I never knew staring into blinding objects could be this awesome!"
- And then wacky animation happened.
- "I sure hope this is a fungate, and not a hellgate or other eldritch horror-portal! Wheee!"
- Not shown: Everypony going insane from the millennial-long journey through a void of nothingness.
- That comic cover art does not match the content art.
- Maretropolis! So named after its prime slavery export.
- "I was paid a fortune to reference that."
- My hair is gems. Your argument is invalid.
- "Attention power duelists! My hair makes me crazy!"
- AJ, this was explained to you not a minute ago.
- Spike's nerd card finally pays off.
- A cringe-worthy pun, worthy of a cheese-worthy villain.
- "These pretzels will destroy you!"
- And then Pinkie died, prompting many sadfics.
- And then Pinkie discovered something better than drugs - speed!
- Poor AJ: Even with superpowers, she still gets the short end of the stick.
- That is a really good crazy laugh.
- "Raise her mane?"
- And then Twi's bedroom problem became her superhero problem.
- "If I was sane, I'd probably just kill you in some gruesome fashion in your moment of weakness. LUCKILY, I'M NOT!"
- "My superpower is what I do for a living every day, anyway? Gee, thanks."
- Yes, just stand there as the tornado funnel approaches.
- "Look at all this neat stuff I stol- I mean, found!"
- Dammit Pinkie, you had one place you weren't supposed to run into, and you even climb a building to do it!
- "Dis gon b gud."
- What part of "attack construct" is hard to understand?
- When in doubt, attack Spike with tea-ware.
- The puns! They burn!
- You may want to have those eyes examined for cray-cray syndrome.
- You'd think she'd pay more attention to the object she's trying to steal. Or at least notice someone nicking it from her.
- And then Spike was the scrappy.
- Ropes get tighter around her? Psychically connected to the rope? Welp, it's confirmed: AJ has a bondage kink.
- Rarity what in the world is that thing.
- RD states the obvious.
- Pinkie Pie knows her priorities.
- "Good thing you're not a easily abused comic relief character, right? Right?"
- Because all top-secret bases have their location well-known.
- You'd think the citizens of Manehattan would be distrustful of shampoo.
- RD, you are the dumbest horse.
- Why is there shampoo spilling out of there?
- "It's better than your bedroom performance, darling."
- "You know I can just get up again, right?"
"Shut up and pretend your unconscious."
- Pinkie troll is best troll.
- That mook has the look of someone who's been sexually molested, or in this case, subjected to eerie fashion fetishes.
- And then Rarity killed a mook.
- "I should wear fashionable murder implements more often! Also, murder makes me happy!"
- Evil overlord rule #1: Do not hire metrosexuals for any reason.
- "Uhm, you only inconvenienced us a bit. We can still fight and stuff."
"No you can't. You're too pathetic and metrosexual for that."
"Damn it, it's true!"
- How high can her mane even go?
- "If it's not clear by now, I'm super crazy. Look at my crazy eyes."
- How is it a "ray"? It's clearly just a spray.
- "Shut up Spike, bull-rushing her is clearly the proper tactic to employ against her gas-based weaponry!"
- Pinkie clearly should have been able to dodge that.
- "As a villain, it is my job to rub it in for the sake of being stupid."
- And then Fluttershy became the waifu of a loony with prehensile tentacles. Along with the rest of the mane six, all frozen and helpless, whilst still aware. To quote Quagmire: "Jackpot!"
- Physics fact: Buckets can also teleport.
- "Who's that crawling and talking in our vents?"
"Must be rats."
- Yes, we get it, you have a "mane" motif. No need to rub it in with the hairdryer doomsday weapon.
- "ONE MILLION MANE-DOLLARS!"
- You know, that wouldn't really be that threatening if it weren't for the "go Joker-looony batshit insane" part it seems to include.
- Yes, Fluttershy, make sure to remind the villain of their one mistake that they can very easily rectify now that you've reminded them of it.
- Yes, Spike, make sure to say that aloud where all the mooks, and the villain, can hear you.
- "Her speech is so interesting, I'm going to do nothing but stare blankly at her, ignoring all things in my peripheral vision."
- "TEMPTING FATE MAKES ME INCREDIBLY HORNY!"
- Okay, how did Spike even carry that giant crate over there?
- "We immediately regret being clones."
- Pronk down stairs... WITH STYLE.
- "I AM YOUR GODDESS, MORTALS!"
- "Run! Run from the horrifying Pink mare!"
- Wilhelm scream!
- "I'm sure you can do mass carnage and senseless murder without me."
- OH NO YOU DIDN'T!
- "I immediately regret this decision."
- And then a million "superhero" fanfics cried out in joy at the glory of Flutterhulk.
- How often does she have to replace that outfit?
- FACE PARRY!
- "Girls, let's never ***k with Fluttershy again, agreed?"
- "Ach, even her rampages are graceful!"
- Can't tell if villain-gasm, or just super batshit crazy. Either way, she's enjoying it waaaay too much.
- Darn, the demo trial ran out. I hate when that happens.
- "Oh, good, they're gone. Now we can destroy Maretropolis properly."
- "Where did you get those from, Pinkie?"
"I'm a klepto!"
- "Spike, you are a dumbass."
- Man, the enchanted comics have terrible DRM.

BATS!

- FLUTTERBAT!
- Pinkie Pie confirmed for Burrower, and a mane-variant of "Clever Tail". We really should update that talent, by the way.
- FLUTTERBAT!
- The soil of Equestria is apparently saturated with gems.
- FLUTTERBAT!
- Easily missed detail: Fluttershy's cutie mark changes as well!
- FLUTTERBAT!
- The song certainly had a "Tim Burton" feel to it, though it isn't very "memorable". Noticeable contrast between the two singers as well (Fluttershy employing bloom, AJ using dark, solid colors).
- FLUTTERBAT!
- Vampire bats apparently aren't a form of undead, as they have reflections.
- FLUTTERBAT!
- Giant mutant apples. Apparently AJ has Green Hooves.
- FLUTTERBAT!
- Technology! Both in the form of a high-tech, air-cylinder biohazard suit, as well as laser hologram magic and flashlights.
- FLUTTERBAT!
- I really hope they make a thing out of the ending.

Bats!:

- Stalk mode, activate!
- "Mah' life is so empty outside of apples, and bucking."
- Those lines are begging for unnecessary censorship.
- Her apple overlords have invaded her eyeballs as well, it seems.
- There's innuendo in this somewhere.
- No! Not 'they're'! Anything but they're!
- How is she ringing that bell?
- "I'm too country to calm down!"
- "They sparkle and everything!"
- Pictured: horrifying tree torture.
- "Lots of TLC, and other illegal substances!"
- That's what she said! Oh wait.
- Fluttershy, what are you doing. Staph.
- ZUBAT USED SEED CANNON
- Don't lie, Fluttershy.
- So, apparently, vampire fruit bats have their own dialect / language / accent. And Fluttershy has yet to pick up on it?
- That's no tree!
- Song!
- Bringing up that halloween vibe!
- Those bats look like gremlins.
- That's a lot of bats.
- Fluttershy, scale down those bloom effects, will you?
- Those bats must be the equivalent of retired seniors?
- I don't see the logic of her trees are getting stronger from being plucked clean of leaves. Nor how the bats managed to destroy the leaves if they just drain the fruits. Or how/why they get the seeds around.
- PEER PRESSURE, ACTIVATE!
- This is starting to sound like a villain song.
- Pinkie, you're doing it wrong.
- Noooo get the song out of my head!
- Fluttershy's plan revolves around having a piece of orchard she can effectively sacrifice. Isn't this already happening with the regular fruit bats in the western orchard?
- RD has her priorities straight.
- "Or she'd be rambling incoherently. One of the two."
- "With each episode, my royal horny-ness grows!"
- A spell that affects a creature's eating habits? Surely NOTHING AT ALL can go wrong with that. Nope. No sireeeee. Not again, at least.
- The stare isn't a WMD, Fluttershy.
- RD's tear indicate she knows of how crippling and hopeless her addiction and subsequent withdrawal is.
- "They should live free to terrorize, pester and horrify other creatures! Rehab is immoral!"
- SICK AND WRONG!
- RD still knows her priorities.
- That's just asking for a bat to get stuck in her hair. And subsequent rabies / supervirus pandemics.
- See, Rarity knows her biohazards.
- "Do it, filly!"
- Okay, how did using the stare accomplish anything? Why don't they just look away? Or cast the spell as they're hissing at them?
- That glow isn't ominous at all.
- And then the vampire fruitbats die of starvation.
- Spike, don't be a dipshit.
- "I smell an ambush."
- ROUND 2!
- "No more bucking around! Get the guns!"
- Is that Stripe from Gremlins? What the hell is he reading?
- "Leave me to my literature, uncouth alcoholic."
- Bullseye! Or pony eye in this case.
- WHO SAID STAKE?!
- Equestria confirmed for witches.
- "Does she have an apples fetish too?"
- NOPONY LEAVES, EVEN IF IT KILLS YOU!
- Pinkie Pie, manes do not work like that unless you're a supervillain.
- Nor do flashlights work that way.
- "Me and Fluttershy have no signals so we can easily be picked off."
- AJ's weakness: Bright lights, and sillyness.
- "I'm on to you, yellow harlot!"
- Jeebus did those bats bio-degrade the trees too?
- Well that's not ominous at all.
- Yes, good job Pinkie, you figured out the one thing you were supposed to do.
- "Good thing I'm not a stereotypically shallow female that gets killed off first!"
- It's a scarecrow, Dash.
- Dash, it's still a scarecrow.
- ARE YOU RETARDED DASH?!
- Pictured: Strawman politics.
- AJ is in shock over her spotlight being stolen yet again.
- Yes, provoke the monster from barely a hoof's distance, Pinkie. That certainly won't get you murdered horribly.
- ASDLFHASDG!
- GFSAODGIHS!
- ASIDFJSAOD!
- Jimmies: Rustled.
- Excite: Yes.
- Thanks for the official name, Rarity.
- Bat tongues are freaky, apparently.
- "Out of my face, dirty booze-bum mortal!"
- Equestria apparently has the same soil composition as Spelunky would.
- Mole powers, activate!
- LASER FUTURISTIC HOLOGRAM GRAPHS, BITCHES!
- "Even as an entity of evil, I maintain cuteness."
- She's just dicking around with them at this point.
- Plans montage!
- "Okay, so we'll use AJ's giant, prized apple to lure her."
"Why don't we just have RD catch her? She's stupidly fast, and Fluttershy isn't a good flyer anyway."
"Shut up AJ and ruin your prized apple already."
- This reminds me of Dexter.
- Apples have scents, apparently. Or this one is rotten and thus stench-filled.
- And then they... Ruin a perfectly good apple giant apple by cutting it, just to attract a pony who would have noticed it ANYWAY. Instead of just leaving it untarnished and allowing it to be put in the contest later.
- "Good thing she actually has a reflection, or we'd be bucking dead now."
- She'd terrible at flying away, apparently.
- Cute pony, get!
- "Pinkie Pie, it's not your time to steal the show from me yet."
- No mind is safe from Pinkie Pie logic.
- RD's crippling withdrawal can finally be quenched.
- Moral time!
- Yes, tempt/taunt the former monster. Release the Flutterbat once more, like the country fool you are.
- Pinkie knows how to make a scene awkward.
- Squee noises!
- And then everyone laughs into a happy ending.
- ESDHASKDGJASDF!
- CSKDFJHASKDFJAD!
- HSKDGHAWOGHFO!
- And then the next episode was similar to Salem's Lot.
- MY LITTLE PONEEEEEEE

One can also draw an idea of how the "Lunar batponies" fit into the show: They seem like the "non-vampiric fruitbat" version of Flutterbat. In other words, not jerks, and probably eat apples without draining them, but still batty.

By the way, this popped up on the pony facebook page. It looks... Official. Much excite.

Post  Zarhon on Sun Jan 05, 2014 3:46 am

Rarity Takes Manehattan

This episode has quite a few tidbits!
- A musical reference.
- Mad men reference.
- Cats reference.
- New York references.
- Carrot-dogs! They're a thing!
- Devil wears Prada allusions.
- Rarity engages in generosity, and then has a need for hotel kleptomania and vandalism.
- A new contender for "most hated pony that the Mane Six can't legally murder" - Siri. Diamond Tiara can only accomplish so much as a kid bully.
- A background pony that everyone appears to be going dawww'ing about and who partially steals the spotlight - Coco.
- A so-so song. The lyrics feel awkward at a few scenes, and not very memorable.
- A few new Rarity faces, including what is arguably the saddest face we've seen so far.

- More foreshadowing! The episode is chock full of rainbow-motifs, which appear to be acting in a manner similar to "Bad Wolf" of Dr. Who. Instances include the rainbow-decorated taxi cab, the rope and Rarity's eyes at the fashion show, and of course, the rainbow spool of thread itself.

- Symbolism of the Mane Six is obvious in the ending, both in the spools of thread AND the glimmer on the "special" rainbow spool. Looks like we've got a great candidate for Rarity's Box-o'-Mcguffin-Key. Or failing that, a method for her to make a textile product that achieves a similar purpose?

- Worst quirk on the episode: Rarity's completely irrational behavior. She gets over it and learns of her mistake, but it feels extremely forced and out of character for her in the first place.

- Spike does not get love.

- Overall: It's 'solid', but not particularly exciting to stand out in any way, apart from its apparent arc-plot significance.

Anyway, have some commentary as usual.
RARITY TAKES MANEHATTAN:
- And we open with some indentured servitude.
- Rarity should start a business of smuggling.
- "Of course we'll go on a free vacation trip at no expense to us!"
- Yes, I'm sure you've bribed, blackmailed, and BJ'd the judges enough to ensure victory.
- I challenge you to a filly's card game!
- It's saying something when Rarity outright ignores Pinkie's ranting, mid-sentence.
- With all these horse puns, it makes you wonder: How many times can horse puns be used in Equestrian words before it becomes over-saturated with them, leading to errors and communication misunderstandings?
- Annnnd there's a reference I'm missing.
- These ponies are excite about musicals.
- Spike realizes the mistake he's made by this point.
- Pinkie Pie: Pronking addict.
- Chugga-chagga-chugga chagga train-train!
- Oh, hey, a cats reference! And what appear to be... hay burgers? Man, that's a huge line for a musical.
- "Cement horseshoes and garroting may have been involved as well."
- Cheerilee, that disguise isn't fooling anypony.
- How do they know the musical is good? How does anyone judge a musical before hearing/seeing it?
- "Here, let me just hang this giant lampshade whilst cheery music begins in the background."
- Rainbow Dash is flipping the buck out at Rarity's spotlight-stealing.
- Trot faster, whelp-servant!
- "Savor it, it's all you are getting for the next few days."
- If Dennis the menace taught me anything, it's that ketchup and carrots kill each other, taste-wise.
- And then douche-bird nabs it away. Sorry Spike, looks like it's malnourishment for you this week.
- "Hah, peon! I could bathe in these if I wanted to. But I prefer crushing them into fine powder."
- If there's a Statue of Liberty is a thing, it can only mean one thing: Somewhere, somehow, the French exist in Equestria.
- Little did the freezing pony know that he was just handed a murder implement by a known murderer. Getting rid of incriminating evidence is simple with a scapegoat.
- Another reference I'd probably appreciate more if I watched the show it referenced.
- "My life? My destiny? My Cutie Mark? It is one of eternal depression, social agony, disappointment, resentment, and worst of all, unwanted idiotic attention. Yes, I am grumpy. Gaze upon my grump face, so that you may choke on it, like the insignificant media-obsessed drone you are."
- Rarity knows better than to exhibit her kleptomania with so many witnesses. This time, at least.
- "Oh hey, a flower! That certainly ruins my destiny-decided drive in life! Thanks!"
- We've seen this scene before, animators.
- Mane Six Taxi Wagon Repair Team, Yay!
- Man, those singing lines sound off for everypony else.
- Applejack discovers her true destiny: Being a terrible, terrible visual pun and silly pony.
- "Please lady, your singing is not helping my hangover. Wait, are you real? Am I still drunk? Should I even be driving?"
- "Move one muscle, and SNAP goes your neck!"
- Rarity is secretly a carpenter, apparently.
- Oh hey, the plot is happening!
- When in doubt, turn into a hysterical dame.
- Who waits in line for a taxi? How does that even work? Don't they have buses for this?
- Pride taxi with cab-driver-accent-speaking driver, to the rescue!
- Spike, you had one job!
- Why do secretaries and receptionists always have lisps?
- When in doubt, panic and face-plant. Into a carpet, preferrably.
- If he could "race them over", what prevented any of the Mane Six from doing the same? How did they even get to him if he was right outside the hotel?
- For a cartoon marketed for little girls, this show is doing its damn hardest to demonize the actually-demonic fashion industry.
- Wow. That animation is actually top notch - compared to static, cartoonish silk, that purple stuff actually looks the way genuine silk does.
- Well, that's not a ominous request at all.
- Let this be a lesson: Always have a way of screwing over creativity thieves and leechers.

- Woah, Rarity, I know your in the mob, but you ain't calling the shots here.

- Did she just say "Go to hay!"?

- "I am wearing a lampshade for a hat and I don't look like a drunken partygoer. It cannot go more meta than this."
- "My jewelry is made of keys and a soap on a rope. Deal."
- Meanwhile, a lot of hotel patrons are wondering why their doors are locked, their keys are missing, and their valuables are absent.
- Is that Lady Gaga in the audience, or a Disney evil villain of some sort?
- "I have befallen to the evil of fashion! Truly, all those who dare enter this industry are doomed to turn into heartless wretches! I'm never getting a fashion episode again, am I?"
- INITIATE RAINBOW BRAIN BLEACH!
- Dude, when someone gives you free money for no reason, you take and remain quiet. Otherwise the feds pay a visit.

- Rainbow Dash is excite.
- Rainbow, no, bad pony, no accents for you.
- "I may have agreed to a few hits and headshots. The legitimate, mafia unrelated kind with no murders whatsoever. Yes."
- And then Rarity is put on a bus forever. Cue credits.
- Noooo Coco go away you're ruining it!
- "Here's a best pony award. Fight to the death for it."
- "What, you thought we'd drop my Devil wears Prada plot? Who's episode do you think this is, mule?"
- "Here, let me be cute and steal all the attention from the fans of the show, marginalizing your own performance. Siri? Diamond Tiara? Please, I do quality evil. Now then, about that hit-list of yours..."
- "I certainly hope this isn't another anthrax package."
- And then she gets... A functionally (for tailoring, at least) useless spool of thread, whos vibrant colors are impossible to distinguish when sticthed into a weave.
- Hey guys, did check out our symbolism and foreshadowing? Are you paying attention? I don't think they're paying attention, let's make the thing glimmer as well! Man, foreshadowing is hard work.

A note of interest: The shimmer that happens on the rainbow spool itself isn't the colors of the rainbow - rather, it's the color's of the Mane Six's coats, in a pattern that looks vaguely like a thunderbolt:

I'm not saying it's Rainbow Power... But it's probably Rainbow Power.

Also, Coco might return! I for one welcome our new member of the Mane 7 / Rarity replacement.  Razz

Rainbow motif.
Lightning bolt pattern to the shimmer at the end
Rarity's lesson was both one of Generosity and Loyalty, and she recieved a Rainbow colored spool of thread.
I remember someone mentioning that maybe there was a connection to the cutie mark swap from MMM
if so, Applejack'll have a lesson on Honesty and Generosity and get something like an Apple shaped gemstone.
Pinkie will have a lesson on Laughter and Honesty, and get something like an apple pie? I'm not sure. though with this it doesn't make sense
Shy'll have a lesson on Kindness and Laughter and get a balloon animal?
and Rainbow'll have a lesson on Kindness and loyatlty, and get a rainbow colored animal?

It's not a perfect thought

That rainbow spool of thread is Rarity's key to the Chest of Harmony.
Other rainbow colored items will be the other Mane 6's keys.

/Tin Foil Hat

Being Generous is good, but Rarity clearly doesn't under the concept of Trade Secrets or Corporate Espionage
Bet some of the art assets from "Maretropolis" in "Power Ponies" was recycled here.

EDIT: Trade Secrets is an awesome name for a pony.

/Random Thoughts.

New episode! Things happen, and then there's a moral.


Thoughts!
- Pinkie confirmed for lacking any form of self-preservation instinct, or simply deciding to cut the "mortal" act. She also gives no bucks whatsoever.

- I get the feeling Pinkie somehow stole Maneiac's powers, and that her reality bending is getting stronger. Rainbow power might make her silly amounts of omnipotent being.

- A sort of unexpected moral direction (though predictable outcome) - Rather than focus on Pinkie, it focuses on the Apple Family, who overly focus on Pinkie. And is it just me, or is this the first time that Pinkie Pie provided/resolved the moral of the episode?

- Ambiguous conclusion of the plot. Disappointing, but probably for the best, and less disappointing/predictable than the alternatives.

- Apple Family continuity, of a sort.

- Crazy cat lady! That part felt a bit like padding, though - a bit longer than expected.

- Song! It's a bit jarring the difference between early animatic from months ago, and the final product - A few new details add to the song (pans, extra sound effects), but some of the animation looks a bit odd by comparison (pinkie's bouncing, and a few facial expressions, and their little dance/jig in front of the cart being the biggest differences).

- There's a freeze-frame bonus: One of the scrapbook pictures has a shot from the "implied to be full of horror-terrors" cave, and has two monsters in it!

- Another sign of fine details of the show crew: They bothered to add realistic "red eye" to one of the photos.

- Lots of amusing facial expressions.

- Pinkie Pie is an expert at dodging questions related to her omnipotence / photographing skills. That last photo may explain most of it, though.

Now have some commentary! (For full effect, watch the episode whilst reading!)
Pinkie Apple Pie:
- BOOKS!
- Pinkie: Professional trespasser and screamer.
- "Why are you in my house, Pinkie?"
"I'm still a klepto."
- Pinkie is a bit of a smartass, isn't she?
- I feel sad that I didn't know this before and had to learn it from a children's cartoon.
- "Don't question my powers Twilight, if you know what's good for you."
- That is the look of somepony who's been threatened to be sent to the cornfield.
- Pinkie Pie confirmed for speed-reader, apparently.
- Who's scroll is that for to be so long? Celestia's?
- Pinkie doesn't even know.
- Pinkie is excite.
- "HEY COUSIN, WANNA GO BOWLING?"
- AJ: [screaming internally]
- Applebloom wants ALL the sisters.
- Pinkie is not good at genealogy.
- "We're all comic relief, you'll fit right in!"
- AJ has been reading TV tropes.
- How to impress a new family member? Humiliate yourselves, of course!
- Damn it Granny, you're the reason we need transcripts.
- That's a lot of time for a snail to hibernate.
- AJ, you live on a farm. Farms don't smell nice, they smell like manure. Or horse apples.
- You heard it from Applebloom first, folks: AJ is responsible for making Pinkie her cousin.
- And then Pinkie died. Applebloom ended up being sent to a correctional facility for her ponyslaughter. AJ fell into drinking. Granny Smith died of shock. Big Machintosh became a pimp to support the family. Roll happy credits.
- AJ where'd you get that genealogy record? Also, stop making me type genealogy.
- Aha! The plot is starting!
- SUBMIT TO THE ADORABLE EYES!
- Back to the plot!
- Smile and nod, Pinkie. Smile and nod.
- She was not thinking that.
- Hohoho let's make fun of the elderly.
- Granny, this is why you're comic relief - nobody can understand you without transcripts.
- So, AJ's basically telling her family to pretend they're perfect and generally be dishonest about themselves. ELEMENT OF HONESTY, EVERYPONY!
- Animators, why would you put AB's flank into focus for a good 5 seconds there? What were you thinking?
- Pinkie is excite. And hopped up on drugs, if that face is any indication.
- Why does she carry confetti when she practically farts the stuff?
- Big Macintosh has hoarding problems, apparently.
- SONG TIEM!
- How has that cart not self destructed in the first few seconds? Or nobody vomited during the trip?
- AJ, why would you tear a map in half?
- AJ confirmed for banjo skills, apparently.
- That dance appears impossible to perform.
- Pinkie Pie's bouncing looks... odd.
- Apple family confirmed for piracy. And Pinkie Pie confirmed for klepto, apparently.
- Pinkie is super excite.
- Pinkie cares not for your laws of momentum.
- Wow, did she actually carry a sink just to make that pun? Or did she toss away one from the AJ family?
- And then the cart exploded, killing them all. Roll credits.
- Pinkie Pie wants to hear all the slanderous details.
- Rub it in, AJ.
- "They did it in Oregon Trail! How hard could it be?"
- Assuming that glue works like mouse adhesive, that squirrel is pretty much doomed to a horrible, slow death.
- How does AJ assume the glue substance isn't helpful for making a raft?
- Where did they get two giant logs for the raft? Beaver Pie, of course.
- Nice how they added red eye to that picture.
- "Why is there a picture of Big Mac's flank among those?"
"I'm also a nympho."
- "Applejack, do you want me to send you to the cornfield? No? Then stop asking questions you shouldn't."
- Pinkie, don't use your powers for dickish reasons.
- Wet mane Applebloom is adroable.
- What the hell are those two talking about?
- Well, time for the obligatory waterfall haz- Oh wait it's just multiple paths.
- You mean the one map you tore in half during the song?
- You had one job, Applebloom!
- And then the brony reference RUINS EVERYTHING RABBLE RABBLE.
- That is a surprisingly elastic piece of paper.
- That eagle is a dick.
- How is Pinkie Pie lifting that camera?
- Well this can't possibly end badly for anypony.
- That's the second scariest cave I've ever seen!
- Pinkie Pie has no self-preservation instinct.
- Or she's gleeful over the Apple Family property she's about to inherit following the other's horrifying deaths.
- Or she's a monster fetishist.
- Do not question your elder abominations. This includes Pinkie Pie.
- How did granny NOT have a heart attack from all of that?
- Cue steering wheel breaking in 5...
- Oh snaaaaaaaaaap, you just got burned by Granny Smith, AJ.
- That eagle is still a dick.
- I'm starting to think Pinkie Pie is a death-seeker of some kind. Or she gives absolutely no bucks for anypony.
- And then they all drowned, died on impact, or got smashed onto the jagged rocks below. ROLL THE HAPPY CREDITS!
- Pinkie no, not the duckface! Worst pony! Bad pony!
- Umbrellas don't work that way.
- "Wait, you're still alive?! Damn it! Uh, I mean, hooray!"
- Pinkie Pie still gives absolutely no bucks for anything.
- "HOLY CRAP, AJ, IT'S A NOTE!"
"A NOTE!
- It requires a special kind of mind to be this genki about everything.
- Is... Is she going back to Ponyville now? Does she have stashes of scrapbook paper nearby? Is she versed in the art of gathering and manufacturing scrapbook paper? Ladies and gentlemen: PINKIE PIE.
- Quiet, Big Mac! We can't have you talking for any reasons!
- "You still haven't killed each other? Are you kidding me?!"
- Pinkie Pie, you're too silly to make a moral.
- Pinkie Pie, what are you doing?
- Pinkie Pie, stahp.
- Somepony likes cats.
- Those poor cats.
- Somepony has a hoarding problem.
- Among other things. Who keeps a cougar?
- That's a lot of derp-eyed cats.
- Holy crap is that an Octavia cat?
- Fun fact: The gingerbread house is the same one from the Hearth's Warming Eve episode. The one that Pinkie Pie took a bite from.
- That dust/hairball cat is both amusing, impressive, and disgusting.
- Fun fact #2: Apparently Jenga skills run in two families.
- Looks like somepony wants to be a pretty pretty princess.
- Looks like somepony was tampering with the evidence.
- "Only an Apple Family member would go thorough such lengths to try and get us murdered in a 'tragic accident'!"
- "Pinkie Pie, your tail..."
"Don't worry, it's harmless as long as you make no sudden movements!"
- Those horror-terrors sure are photogenic.
- Did her mane just absorb the scrapbook? Are those now part of her mind and memories?
- "Please, take some. My life is in ruin."
"Nah."
- Being a family is also about not dying horribly during a trip to your cousins, apparently.
- Pinkie Pie, you are best pony.

18:39 Metroids in Equestria confirmed!

If you played Super Metroid, you'll know what this is referencing.  In case you don't, the below video should help. Starts at 5m, 17seconds

Have commentaries cause reasons.
Rainbow Falls:
- ARMY MUSIC YEAH!
- And thus Bulk Biceps describes himself in a single sentence.
- YEAUHS!
- Olympics are srs business.
- Yes commercials, I know I'm watching in HD.
- "I'd qualify for you anytime, if you know what I mean."
- No Pinkie, that's obnoxious even when done by you, please stop.
- Thank you Bulk.
- Almost let slip your terror of the cornfield threats there, Fluttershy.
- Those things look like muffins.
- How is Bulk not having a hernia from that?
- And then Fluttershy got crushed and/or suffocated.
- Dash's hopes appear to be... DASHED.
- Why isn't Dash in the air sprinters?
- "Do you think she bought the excuse?"
"Of course she did, it's Dash we're talking about."
- Twilight's expression denotes her familiarity of size disappointment.
- Why is Bulk sitting on Fluttershy?
- SUDDENLY, RARITY!
- RAINBOW FALLS! The gayest place there is!
- Cool new griffons.
- Berry Punch why are you a pegasus now.
- Doctor, you gotta stop regenerating so much. You're starting to mutate.
- Background ponies are excite.
- Denial: A river only Pinkie knows about.
- Those cheerleaders will not survive the night.
- Are those confectionary or projectiles?
- "Know your place, background pony."
- Diabetes-inducing training regimes are all the rage, apparently.
- How is that a baton? It's a horseshoe. Call it a horseshoe.
- Butterhooves, Fluttershy.
- ELEMENT OF GENEROSITY!
- Stage 1 of grief: Acceptance. Wait, something's not right.
- "Stare into the sun!"
- Cheerleaders ruin EVERYTHING.
- And then he made a splatter on the floor. Cheerleaders were sent to jail for involuntary ponyslaughter. The Wonderbolts quickly all retired, too traumatized by the gruesome accident. Rainbow Dash then called dibs on their team contract and became a Wonderbolt. And all was good.
- "Yep, looks crippled."
- No need for exposition, Fluttershy.
- "Oh Celestia the pain I think I broke even more bones now why did I do that?!"
- Alas, steroids doing their part.
- ACTIVATE DOUCHE-GLASSES!
- "Ménage à trois?"
- Who is bulk flexing for? The Wonderbolts? Dash? The audience?
- Man this conversation is nothing but innuendo. Especially kicking tail.
- "Secret, but fun!"
- "That checkered goal is too alluring to resist."
- Oh man they can fly too?
- Isn't there a size/weight restriction for these events?
- ADVENTURE!
- And then Fluttershy was crushed against a rock. The mountain would quickly be chiseled into a beautiful, tragic monument of her untimely demise.
- That look of horror is her realizing how much sweat/musk she is in contact with.
- Rocky trainer! Also, mutant wings.
- Skeptical Sparkle is skeptical.
- Wouldn't eating and flying mix the same way eating and swimming would?
- Adorable belly rub is adorable.
- Oh snap it's the rare collectible crystal Dash!
- "Oh, you're giving me free clothes? Kay."
- Rarity and sports go together like mud and open wounds.
- Rainbow Dash: The fastest stripper in Equestria.
- PLOT TWIST!
- "But Twilight, they suuuuuuuck!"
- "Become one with ussss."
- Fluttershy: Professional boxer in the making.
- Twilight: Professional guilt-slinger.
- "Buck you, this is your episode. Figure out your own moral like everypony else did."
- Is that Apple Fritter?
- Rainbow, did you seriously? I mean, wow.
- Oscar winning performance right there.
- Cheerleaders: Now with 50% more murder and 300% more retarded outfits.
- And then she breaks her back. Leaving her paralyzed for life and winning Pinkie Pie the bet.
- "Yep, smells like bullshit."
- Just eat it!
- "Don't bleed on it, or I'll make you REALLY need bandages."
- "She'd have arrived sooner, but AJ kept throwing apple products at her like a mare possessed."
- "Well, they're fucked."
- Clearly Twilight is going for the blackmail route.
- SECRETS AND LIES!
- Not seen: Celestia shining a light outside.
- "Of course, I just have to kill Derpy!"
- She ain't even mad.
- Twilight gets no respect this season.
- "How dare she walk following a crippling injury?!"

Three's A Crowd!

- Lots and LOTS of references in this one.
- Discord goes overboard on the jerk-o-meter, but gets his karma to compensate.
- Foreshadowing of the upcoming "Breezies" episode!

Now have some delightful commentary.
Three's a Crowd:
- BEST CHARACTER TIME!
- Or not.
- Not an answer you'd be hoping for whilst waiting for your medical results.
- And then Spike had an asthma attack. Or is he vomiting?
- Famous last words.
- Fluttershy is adorable as always.
- Well, almost always.
- Breezies! Apparently, they're considered animals / beneath the master pony race.
- Famous last words, strike two.
- And then Spike got crushed to death.
- Pinkie sure is flaunting her sentient mane/tail this season, isn't she?
- Spam is canon in Equestria, apparently.
- THAT OUTFIT IS THE BEST THING. Can't tell what it is, though. Flutterirwing? Fluttercowpony?
- References! If only I knew which one.
- Element of laughter!
- "Love you to pieces" sounds like something Pinkamena would say.
- "It's like terrible, world-ending things just keep happening around us."
- Twilight and time do not equal quality. Ever.
- Ooh, pony lore!
- You'd expect Rarity to hate drama-free things.
- SPOILERTH. Also, Starswirl drama is a thing?
- "I also fart in your general direction."
- "Quality time, if yah' get me, pardner. I'm subtle."
- Holy crap, it's the killdozer/murder train!
- Yeah, that would probably be a horrid noise to listen to.
- Is that a train or a portal/teleporter?
- "Excluding the rest, of course - you plant those peasant noses into the dirt."
- That's a convenient rug.
- Famous last words, strike three.
- Famous last words, you're out!
- Voice break is hilarious.
- INCOMING PLOT!
- Don't be a smartflank, Rarity.
- So that's how you free a mortgage.
- Our drama queen, caught in a moment of weakness.
- "Where did-"
"Klepto."
"Ah, right."
- Rainbow has a point.
- BEST FACE OF THE SEASON!
- It takes effort to out-drama Rarity in such a degree.
- Did he just take some random pony's mail as proof?
- The scumbag Steve is strong in this one.
- Rainbow, for once, does the smartest and most obvious thing.
- "Top of the mornin' to ya', guv!"
- LET THE SANITY SLIPPAGE BEGIN!
- Smooth save, Discord.
- That's a bit dark, even for this show.
- Smooth, AJ.
- Well, this plot is getting predictable fast.
- Epic level Scumbag Steve, ladies and gentlemen.
- Maretania is a place! Apparently!
- Cadence, chill, it's just a candle.
- Puppy dog eyes!
- Eeww.
- Thats... Convenient. And guaranteed to make medical practice laughably easy.
- When in doubt, be lazy and obnoxious as hell.
- No, it's not, Cadence. It never is. You are stupid.
- SONG!
- Dammit, I can't keep up with this!
- Bees!
- TARDIS beds!
- I'm going to learn some new words, won't I?
- Cool cows!
- Suddenly, shipping fuel!
- STRANGER DANGER!
- YER' A WIZARD TWILY!
- Bon Bon does not get a break.
- Not shown: Twilight's scream of agony and subsequent fountain of blood from being forcefully de-horned.
- Ricola: Apply directly to nose!
- Mane swap!
- Airport security! What is that background pony hiding?
- "Lumpy knees"? Riiiight.
- Discord sure likes objects made of gold, with faces.
- Pinocchio!
- Aladdin!
- Star Wars!
- Flashdance!
- That one Japanese game with horse racing!
- SCUMBAG DRAMA QUEEN DICKERY OVERLOAD!
- "Twilight, not everything can be fixed with spe-"
"SHUT YOUR DIRTY MOUTH!"
- ADVENTURE QUEST TIME, GO!
- Fear & Loathing!
- Cartographers Hats!
- Truly, even god-kings can get sick (300).
- "Dumb fabric!"
- Why are they trying to steal the entire flower? They just need the petals!
- Dafuq.
- The spice must flow!
- And then Cadence gets eaten. The end.
- Or not.
- And then Twilight gets eaten. The end.
- ...or not.
- And then both get eaten. The-
- Now that's cheating. They'd have been impaled by its mouth-spikes.
- Wilhelm scream! And lasers!
- Risky Business, being such a troll.
- Moral time!
- Or not, because this is Discord.
- CANON KEY OF PLOT IMPORTANCE! Nahh.
- Crystal burned. And a real moral!
- Discord don't know what the fuck.
- Did someone order an instant karma?
- Book morals!
- Apparently, a Draconequus doesn't need to breathe.
- CLIFFHANGER ENDING! Nah.

Re: Take these broken wings and learn to fly: S4 Pony Discussion (Screened episodes only)

Episode ruled.

My hypothesis has (Sort of) been consistent for the last few keys:

Rarity learned Generosity and Loyalty lesson.
Dash learned Loyalty and kindness lesson.
Pinkie learned Laughter and Honesty lesson. (Right after she got rainbow eyed? "I broke the pinkie party promise". Integrity)

Rainbow+Mane-6-bow theme has continued throughout the three keys. (Heck, there was like 8 of them during Pinkie's song)

Lots of references to Wierd Al. Deffo a musical episode, though none of the song were that catchy.

There's also glimpses of a lot of "young" ponies in the Cheese Sandwich flashback.

This includes Berry Punch, who is notably NOT young. Either she's immortal, or is a lot older than she looks.

Pinkie Pride:
- Parties!
- Suddenly, Weird Al!
- Cheese Sandwich is a schitzo.
- See, he even has crazy shivers.
- DUN DUN DUN!
- That's a song tune!
- Ponyville janitors must make a fortune with Pinkie around.
- Palette swap Big Mac!
- Don't tease the bronies, Pinkie.
- "Just take the streamers. I know I can't stop your klepto urges."
"Ooh, you're a smart cookie!"
- Not shown: Dr. Whooves freaking out over the paradoxes Pinkie is causing.
- Pinkie confirmed for Yoshi flutterjump abilities.
- Beauty & Beast vibe, this has.
- Enter the alpha mule.
- Outplayed by your best friend.
- That's not how colors work Pinkie.
- "I yearn for the day you die, so that I may sell my goods, rather than lose them at a loss of profit, daily."
- Pinkie, no fair breaking color rules.
- Rainbow: Best photobomb.
- "Your life depends on this party now."
- "SILENCE, YELLOW ONE. YES."
- Suddenly, strange innuendo poses.
- Gasps!
- That's a stupid name, even if it does fit Wierd Al. And his cutie mark.
- Title drop!
- Colin Mochrie would not like this pony.
- Rarity, stop naming things.
- Wait is he...
- Yep, he's a rule 63 Pinkie Pie. Celestia save them all if they breed.
- That's some uncanny animation.
- When in doubt, harass the elderly.
- Flying pigs are a thing, apparently.
- "Our legs are in agony. Please release us from this torment of broken bone."
- "Hey good looking! Want some mayonnaise?" - Did he just make a flirt to himself?
- Not shown: Horrific results of point-blank bomb detonations.
- I sense a food obsession.
- Not shown: The horrific mauling and impalement resulting the introduction of a wild hippopotamus.
- When in doubt, humiliate the snobby.
- "Abandon the pink one! This is our new god!"
- The saddest solo.
- "My tears are delicious."
- Headbutting someone with a helmet is usually a dense thing to do.
- Somepony is in denial.
- And on the verge of mental breakdown.
- Song! So much song!
- The rainbows must make her tears extra spicy.
- Not shown: Medical complications as a result of malpractice.
- Not shown: Multiple fatalities of a construction blunder.
- "Oh hey, my family, and that pony we disowned!"
- "Oh, and there's the party where I went crazy and almost turned into a serial killer! Good times."
- "DJ pony did nothing. NOTHING!"
- Murder time, go!
- Rarity, surely you can choose better than Cheese Sandwich.
- "Yep, it's cupcakes time!"
- Best face.
- DRAMA!
- STAKES!
- BACK TO FUTURE REFERENCES!
- WESTERN REFERENCES!
- Spike is scared of seeming racist.
- When in doubt, choose a judge that is obviously biased.
- "This will be you, someday. Try not to choke on the cupcake wrappers first, though."
- What is it with everypony harassing Rainbow's face?
- Suddenly, meta.
- Double meta!
- Babybele scepter! I used to love those!
- When in doubt, parody the song of others with the addition of polka.
- Or harass the judges with explosives.
- And then Rainbow Dash suffers a spinal injury, leaving her paralyzed for life.
- "Nopony tortures my friends except me!"
- Seal horns seem like overkill.
- I think the rules were clear on that regard, Twilight.
- "None of us could resist his mayonnaise."
- Spike you have nothing to be sorry about.
- "You are eternal. Like death and taxes. Please do not kill us."
- SONG!
- "And that you won't kill me in a bloody yet hilarious fashion."
- Young ponies! Bon Bon unfortunate genetic ties! Lyra! Cheerilee Colgate Braces! Derpy! Immortal Berry Punch!
- And then a time paradox happens.
- So, Cheese Sandwich made his career out of parodying/mimicking somepony who was successful when he wasn't? Sounds eerily familiar.
- "Party for your birthday goddess!"
- Most celebrities don't get a party this good. Why does Dash get one?
- Rainbow is about to enter her midlife crisis years.
- "Is that your [REDACTED] in a box?"
- "My schitzo is flaring up again."
- Oh hey, new theme!

Simple Ways!



- Rarity goes "Lesson Zero" on us.
- Trenderhoof seems a mixture of idiocy and jerky-ness. Especially considering his double-meaning when pointing at Derpy. Drama will be made.
- The VA's made and broke this episode making those accents work in such a flawless fashion!
- Moral is okay. Nothing special.
- Anticlimactic ending. Lots of crazy and cringe-worthy scenes before it, but the plot was fairly 'harmlessly' defused before any real disaster struck.
- So many silly/crazy faces. So many.
- Overall: Nothing thrilling or exciting or memorable, but certainly amusing.

Now have some commentaries!
Simple Ways:

- Old ponies!
- Exposition Pinkie to the rescue from any confusion!
- Exceptional applicants include clowns, medieval time travelers, astronomer wackjobs, Wonderbolts cosplayers, and Derpy Hooves.
- WHAT THE FUCK, PINKIE.
- Rarity wins best pony award.
- Just as planned, of course.
- Oh Pinkie, remain silly.
- Classy as buck.
- Cider is apparently fancy as wine in Equestria.

- Dammit stop making me learn fancy words. And looking up transcripts.
- That's a big horn ring.
- "Of course it will be magical, I'm a bloody unicorn."
- Impress who now?
- "Behold my totally-not-creepy shrine!"
- Okay, I get the lock of hair, but what is that brown... liquid?
- A better word would be "obsessive stalker", or "yandere".
- ~ It's not
~ Creepy
- This is going to be Lesson Zero all over again, isn't it?
- "Behold my hipster-ness in all its glory!"
- Rarity is excite in specific places.
- "I shall hide beneath this tail-wig."
- Not shown: Dramagasm.
- "All my life is dedicated to your existance."
- "This soil seems legit."
- "Thank you, I could not have deducted this place grew apples before you told me."
- NOW KISS!
- Let the trainwreck begin!
- Get out da' way!
- Boner-vision, engage!
- Sad ears, activate!
- That's a lot of tears.
- ENGAGE DRAMA!
- "Since the beginning of time." - Not something you'd want to hear from a stalker with magical powers.
- That simple "aside glance" speaks more than a novel could.
- Initiate awkward geeky flirting attempts.
- SO CLASSY.
- That's a silly outfit.
- AJ's bullshitometer is buzzing.
- Yeah, nopony makes lyrics ending with -ity rhymes unless they're trying to troll Rarity.
- Spike's bullshitometer is spiking.
- Did Spike just confirm he got friend-zoned?
- Rarity is not a clever pony.
- Discarded like a ragdoll.
- Spike is fucking amazed.
- "I don't need lectures in fu- I mean bucking!"
- "It's not about the power of the buck, it's how you style it!"
- Fabulous chores!
- What kind of chores does she have to do in a chicken coop?
- That's a female buck block if I ever saw one.
- Love triangle drama of misunderstandings plot go!
- Suddenly, accent.
- Trainwreck, incoming!
- Applefaic.
- Funneeh?
- Her country hairstyle actually fits her.
- Let the disaster commence.
- Pictured: Every child whos fashion is chosen by their parents.
- TRAINWRECK, REDUX!
- No amount of cringing can justify that faic.
- AJ's being savvy and sarcastic.
- Pictures to make the bronies sweat.
- Hickity, activate?
- That is not a word.
- Goof off initiated!
- Aaaand Rarity wins with her "fucking crazy" routine.
- "I think you were high on something. Or crazy. Or both."
- Hahahahah what.
- Somewhere, parents whos kids are thinking of doing this are cringing.
- Initiate heart-crushing dumping rout-
- Oh wait, Rarity does it instead.
- Disaster averted!
- Oh hey storyboard compraisons!
- Moral times!
- Lesson learned: Don't stop being fabulous.

- Moral is okay. Nothing special.

Honestly? The moral is something that EVERYONE needs to learn, especially people at a young age. "Be you, don't let someone you like or your friends tell you otherwise. Being yourself is what matters, and people will love you for you".

Moral made the episode for me.

Personally I loved Rarity being up in farm clothing and AJ being all fancy. Think Rarity should think of trying to do something with a "rustic" look in the future. Also deeply enjoyed the voice acting bits in that sense too. Lastly, in my opinion, any time I see a good Continuity Nod like there was in this episode makes a good episode.

I've seen the new epoiside... Gotta say highly enjoyed it. But there was one major gripe I got. Pinkie Pie's actions... Oh it was cute the first time she did her overreation-ness on possible outcomes. But the other times was not enjoyed... Hell she should've got the memo the second time she said it. But then again... I guess it makes sense, sometimes I've even found myself acting like Pinkie did and talk too much about a negative when I really enjoyed something... In fact I seem to be doing so right now. And I feel so lame that I pointed that out. Me damn it, Twi

Post  Zarhon on Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:51 pm

Have some manly 1080p HD.


- Bon Bon now presumably has a seal pet.
- Flutterguy! Funnily enough, the whole idea crossed my mind once I saw the Big Mac-loses-voice preview, though dismissed it in favor of her singing normally. Pretty good VAing of the voice.
- Zecora is still mistress of alternative medicine.
- Pinkie Pie, for the first time in a while, makes things worse for everypony. Really dislike that "idiot insensitive" portrayal.
- Very solid moral. Though it could have ended a lot more badly if the ponies acted realistically & cruelly to the performance (mocking her - as some likely would). She got a best-case scenario, really.
- AJ doesn't need to learn anything. She knows it all already. ALL OF IT. Can't help but feel like the writers were pressured into a 'lightning quick exposition' due to episode length, but that was an excellent way of pulling it off.

- Two new background ponies, including a 1000000000000% better version of Diamond Tiara, and what I assume is a cameo or celebrity shout-out I can't recognize.

And commentaries as usual:
Filli vanilli:
- Enter best pony.
- Song!
- Dafuq are those fuzzy ball things.
- Is that a freaking Jackalope? Weren't those vampiric in the IDW comic?
- BULLET TIME! Now available in seeds!
- Not shown: The thousands of bees that are now homeless. Just kidding, they're all dead.
- Since when do mice live in trees?
- "Those Disney princesses can suck it."
- AJ forgot to turn off noclip for her hat.
- Wait what.
- Girl, you've got some issues.
- FRIEEEEEEENDSSSSS!
- Pinkie, you cray cray.
- Rarity is the spokes-pony for peer pressure.
- Pinkie Pie. What are you doing. Pinkie, stahp.
- Okay that last face is great but seriously.
- "No, bad pony!"
- She got you there, Rarity.
- OH SNAP!
- Fluttershy must be to Pinkie like cats are to normal people.
- Scene change!
- Song!
- Hey this is catchy.
- Fluttershy is scared of background ponies.
- Obligatory fanservice.
- Contentshy is best pony.
- "But you love drama, Rarity. You even have a huge poster with "drama" written on it, that you rub-"
"Lies and slander! Why, I hate drama! I hope there ISN'T ANY DRAMA WHATSOEVER FOR THIS EASILY RUINED EVENT. Yep!"
- Pictured: Cock.
- Angel has a date? WHAT IF THEY BREED?!
- I can only imagine the VA struggling to make those tired, raspberry sounds.
- What is that instrument she's using?
- THE HORROR! THE SCANDAL!
- Flashbacks!
- Big Mac has hidden depths. Silly, silly, depths.
- Pinkie Pie, stop being ominous.
- Pinkie ruins everything, part 2. I guess?
- Time for alternative medicine!
- Season 5: The season of faic.
- Rarity does not understand servant-mare talk.
- Wait a minute... Flashbacks of previously seen events? That is approaching dangerously close to a clip-episode.
- Are they really calling it that again?
- "Yes! Drugs!"
- Yes, this sounds like a plan that cannot go disastrously wrong in any way.
- "SING OR THE BUNNY DIES!"
- That couple does not know what crimes that white kitten has committed.
- Weird background cameo pony! And an anti-Scootaloo / anti-Diamond Tiara!
- Bon Bon is too amazed by seals to notice her mare being stallion-stolen.
- Gummy stop sucking that, you don't know where its been.
- How do they make fireflies work like that?
- Okay, that's pretty good. Disaster in five...
- That's adorable for an impending disaster.
- Cheerilee, not in public!
- That wasn't a disaster at all! I feel cheated!
- Steal ALL the animals!
- Oh snap, busted in five...
- Or not.
- Oh hey they're talking. Is he french?
- Dammit filly I need a transcript for that squeak-voice.
- Also who in the right mind calls a child "Zipporwhill"? Is she going to be an arsonist when she grows up?
- The chocolate voice has a point.
- Disaster time, strike two!
- Still nothing?
- Oh I see, it's only escalating from here.
- Underwater singing does not work that way, unless it involves hyperventilation.
- Nobody notices the pony with a diving helmet in the middle of the bath?
- Fluttershy, don't give Big Mac performance-boners.
- Also have a edit that's too good not to show.
- You cannot say no to chocolate voice.
- I CAN SEE FOREVER!
- Calm dem' feelings, Fluttershy.
- Oh hey, finally disaster in 5...
- Even in a crisis, she's got the moves.
- Suddenly, PTSD creepy psycho-trauma.
- And then Fluttershy is annihilated. That went dark REAL fast.
- You're in for it now, Big Mac.
- AJ doesn't actually need to ask him anything. She already knows. She is omniscient. She knows all. She is all. Hail Applejack, best omni-pony. Hail. Hail. Hail.
- Sorry Pinkie, AJ is the exposition goddess now.
- Pinkie, stop crawling up the floors like the elder abomination / spiderpony you are. It's just tacky.
- Okay Pinkie you have no excuse this time.
- Pinkie's IQ dropped this episode.
- Wow Pinkie. Wow. All you're missing is some salt and a butter knife to rub it in with.
- Okay, now THAT'S threatening.
- Rarity loves her drama.
- Song!
- Gah, not the extended faic!
- Pinkie disaster diffused!
- For real, girl?
- Morals!
- "This pen tastes delicious."

Twilight Time!



Commentaries!
Twilight Time:
-Tree!
- Schematics of things with holes in them and how to fill them.
- Yes, destroy the broom!
- Neck snap!
- Much heavy, very lift. Such clean.
- "I mean, I could just tell you dense little fillies what your cutie marks are, but this allows me to inflict school-like activities upon you on a weekly basis."
- In other words, it's an organized mess.
- ACTIVATE PUPPY EYES!
- ERROR, ABORT, ABORT! Alternately, binding of Scootaloo.
- If you look closely, you can see the chemistry set is somewhat bad CGI.
- That is not an apple seedling.
- It should not be doing that. Granny Smith, is that you?
- The flower appears to be impersonating Rarity.
- Ball game of four square which I never saw in my life before!
- Pipsqueak is really tiny.
- Enter the bitchy pink filly.
- Dis gon be gud.
- No. Bad Tiara. No making cutefaces.
- Randall is a paid professional. Do not try this at home.
- No respect for the workforce.
- Apparently, kids are stupid.
- IMAGINE SPOT!
- And of course, Sweetie Belle has the revenge fantasies.
- "I'm sorry, I was imagining your gruesome death. You were saying?"
- Psychological bullying time, go!
- "She's a princess? I though it was just a birth defect!"
- Randall chose the wrong profession. Or maybe the right one? It's hard to tell. He's the Alfred Pennyworth of this show it seems. All Diamond Tiara needs now is a trip to the theater with her parents, and a dark alley. Bang, instant character development, and karmic retribution.
- "I have no personality unless DT says so."
- "Dem wings."
- "They've got too much screen-time to remain the shallow caricatures they are!"
- Points for adorable Silver Spoon.
- Fangasms!
- No, bad Tiara, no copying your minion in cuteness.
- "We're not evil hellspawn, no siree!"
- Rumors of dyed hair debunked! Unless she's a lying liar.
- They immediately regret this decision.
- "The torment is only reserved for the poor."
- "We'll make DIFFERENT mistakes next time!"
- Fillies of the corn!
- "This is not a foreshadowing of my diabolical future self."
- "I'm not authorized to hold a bible, lest it propel itself at the speed of light away from my blatant lies."
- Organized unruly mobs!
- Sweetie Belle knows whats up and is still dense as a rock.
- No Sweetie Belle, you put on sunglasses after such a line.
- "We're a stealthy, unruly mob."
- "Obey my commands, or suffer my fantasies, pink one."
- ONE OF US, ONE OF US!
- SHE'S LOVIN' IT!
- Bury your face in those buns.
- Table manners and princesses do not mix, it seems.
- Eww, Twilight don't you know how much grease they put in those buns? Use a normal piece of bread for that.
- Those horseshoe fries. Those need to exist.
- "We have no false pretenses!"
- Best pony, enter!
- Enter stalker flash mob.
- DAMMIT WHY MUST YOU ALL DO THE DUCKFACES?!
- Not sure if want.
- Et tu, Applebloom?
- "I'm an attention whore."
- And then they pounce, leaving behind only a bloody mess of princess organs.
- "You sure you don't want to undermine and/or ignore my status princess? All the cool adults are doing it."
- Good job making it worse, Pipsqueak.
- "And this time, I'll do it with swagger."
- Wouldn't those gold scissors cost more than all the lemonade they could ever sell?
- Well, if anything proves Sweetie Belle isn't adopted, this does.
- Spike, when'd you turn into a fro-pony?
- "I laced the bow with uranium. Your painful death to the hooves of radiation poisoning is reward enough."
- "Did we mention we're racist? I think that's missing in our evil-cred resume."
- "Ahahahaha no, bitch. You can rot in hell."
- "After all the misery and bullying, you're not thankful?"
- WE DEMAND THE VIRGIN SACRIFICE!
- That's not handling things!
- Reasonably reasonable pony saves the day!
- "Back to the kitchen, slave."
- Aren't magic and bookworms synonymous?
- "I wanna be free to commit acts of anarchy that would get me punished otherwise!"
- He's better AND worse at honesty than Applejack is. At least he's only a background pon- oh, right.
- "I enjoy your gazes of discomfort."
- How is he big enough to ride that thing?
- What's this, hints of success?
- Good job making murder-apples, Applebloom.
- Burned.
- And then she kept a stolen child's scooter.
- Don't worry Spike, Twilight can eat all those. She's a slob.
- Morals!
- "Soon, the fire spells will be within my grasp."
- "Silly filles, the ride never ends."
- It is I, Leclerc.

Highlights:

- Sweetie Belle learns levitation! Guess "poor magic user" is now permanently off the fanfic list, unless she somehow displays incompetence again later. She's also got a distinct green aura, which is not a creative color.

- Diagrams for the box! Looks mostly like an engineering schematic. And apparently has three variants of keys, with an unclear order.

- Diamond Tiara gets no karma and that makes me sad. In fact, CMC are the only ones who get an equivalent of punishment, for things that they didn't intend to cause. Weird zig-zagging of morale in the episode, really - DT starts as a bad behavior example, the CMCs end up copying her / getting her benefits purely by accident and DT's manipulation, then decide to make the most of it, then try to fix things when they see its going badly, and then things go wrong for them because of DT's egging for things she herself is guilty off, and gets away scot free!

To summarize, DT acts like a bitch the whole episode, is responsible for half the plot/bad things, manages to avoid learning any 'moral lessons' whatsoever, profits from hanging out with "the popular ones", and gets absolutely no punishment or downsides of any of her actions, whilst managing to get the CMC into trouble repeatedly.

- Alchemist Applebloom! So far, she knows how to make diseases for plants, explode flora, and rapidly grow plants to huge size.

- Scootaloo somehow fails at a scooter-related activity. Which is weird.

- Awesome butler.
