Oh, The Places You'll Go - S5 Pony Discussion

Post  Paper Shadow on Sun Apr 05, 2015 12:05 am

Alright people, you know how this goes. Post stuff, don't post stuff, whatever the weather. Keep anything that hasn't been screened (and isn't just speculation) in named spoiler tags, but once an episode has been aired post whatever you want about it. We might make a separate thread for spoilers if the need arises, but the last one seemed to die out early into Season Four, so we'll see...

My synopsis:
[4/4/2015 2:29:44 PM] A1C Bronymous: so I was watching the new episode
[4/4/2015 2:29:50 PM] A1C Bronymous: And I was just like
[4/4/2015 2:30:24 PM] A1C Bronymous: at any given moment, you could literally fix everything just by smacking the bitch
[4/4/2015 2:30:27 PM] A1C Bronymous: just hit her
[4/4/2015 2:30:39 PM] A1C Bronymous: it would solve EVERYTHING

That said, any holes in the story that I may have been searching for were filled in nicely in due course, and everything was on point, especially the creep faces. I near about died when they first got to town and Party Favor went over to stare at Rarity, and she just got increasingly more uncomfortable. It was subtle, centered on screen but in the background, very well executed. Like I said, on point.

Oh, and the plot was just Animal Farm with a happy ending. So if you read that then you know the premise of the whole episode.

Well, that begs the question of when they would hit her. Before the trap? No decent reason for that which isn't unjustifiably hostile (which, on a quest to spread friendship, is a bad thing). During the trap? Well, Twilight tried, but got zapped first. After the trap? The Sameness Spell causes physical strength reduction (as seen in the end of the episode), and Starlight Glimmer was at full capability. Then you've got the legion of townsfolk to be concerned of (which is more concerning after the trap because they have equal strength to you)...

Not really...

My mom watched the episode with my brother and I, and we all decided it was a ponification of Jonestown. Unfortunately we remembered the wrong name for the incident, thinking it Stepford, and decided to call the pony town (they specifically never named it in the episode, something which I think Pinkie Pie brings up) Clopford.

But yeah, we all agreed upon this place being a cult.

Any given moment. Literally at any point during the plot, just by hitting her in the face and disrupting their joyous little brainwashing experiment, they could throw the status quo into chaos and resolve the situation. But since that requires both violence an chaos, its obvious why they didn't.

It was Animal farm, actually. Yes, it was very culty, but it follows the exact process and ideology of Animal farm: "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others." Glimmer was obviously the corrupt leadership class (pig), preaching to everyone how being the same and not wanting more, wanting to share and be perfectly equal with everyone else leads to a content, perfect existence, while secretly keeping power for herself in order to dominate the masses and slowly take control of Equestria. It's brainwashy like Jonestown, but it's political like Animal farm, not religious.

Someone actually answered that!
Spoiler:

Remember how I liked to do commentaries? Have the new episode one. Plus a 1080p of the episodes.

The Cutie Map Pt1 (AKA things go south):

- Obligatory toy-selling shot.

- And here we see the slouch, in his natural habitat.

- Pay no attention to the glowy chair bits.

- "Our audience has the memory of a goldfish, so let's have some recap exposition!"

- End of story? Welp, that was a short episode.

- "Rarity, this isn't your house. Get out."

- "I have no opinions of my own."

- New plot point! Triggered by a bunch of pony plots.

- Spike, the king of observation.

- MAH LITTLE PONEEEEEE!

- Spike cares not for your family.

- You've got plot points!

- Probably because it's waaaaaaaaay over there.

- "I have a bunch of life insurance policies to cash in on."

- Baking sheets? Baking sheets.

- Peer pressure, activate!

- Apparently, gems make good beer-hats. Unless he's drinking liquid gems.

- "I'd rather tackle pony-murderers than enjoy football."

- Ugh, more transcript-needing lines. Let's see now... Oh, he's talking about cards, not lechery. Damn you, transcripts!

- TRAIN MONTAGE! Alternately, HYPE TRAIN!

- "Why do we have a train station here?"
"So idiots who get lost don't die in the desert."
"And are we going to reverse the whole way?"
"Yes. Because our engineers are idiots."

- TRAVEL MONTAGE!

- What a quaint little, non-cultist infested village!

- Rainbow Dash needs her adrenaline fix.

- Enter best pony.

- Silly rocks, you should know by now you can't kill Pinkie.

- "Why are you two idiots flying about when we're trying to hide?"

- With ordinary rape-faces.

- The yellow one cannot be wrong!

- No Pinkie, they're actually perfect murder-smiles.

- Gasp! They're all military captains!

- An equal cutie mark symbol, and they're all the same, it's like they're... not-different!

- "Do not question my fetishes."

- Give us creepy screen-time... forever...

- "The internet made me immune to creepypasta."

- ...if you know what I mean. It's rape.

- Don't look him in the eye, Rarity.

- Welp, no trouble, better end the episode then.

- Tempting fate, are we Fluttershy?

- "Miss Stali- I mean, Starlight!"

- Rainbow Dash's fear of IRS agents takes a new height.

- "Our butts vibrated and told us to come here."

- So, the whole place is a brothel?

- And by tour, I mean song!

- THE SINGING WILL CONTINUE UNTIL RATINGS IMPROVE!

- Their destiny is [insert popular internet site here]? Sounds horrid.

- Shaking in fear is punishable by death.

- Yeah, who needs dreams?

- 0/10 on choreography.

- Ladies and gentlemen, she's still adorable.

- "Nopony steals my cuteness spotlight. Oh, now you're doing it on purpose!"

- They're totally not living in a hellish fear-driven society with a mere facade of happiness!

- Rainbow gives no bucks.

- "After all, you needed a new villain after you exploded the last few."

- ...up until we imprison you and brainwash you.

- Yes, we get it, you're evil. Stop rubbing it into our faces.

- Those look incredibly itchy.

- Pay no attention to the crazy lady.

- Protect the children from the Rainbow abomination!

- "Nope, we've got at least two more seasons under contract."

- Even Maud didn't have this much awkwardness.

- She will come to regret her decision momentarily.

- "I was taught how social interactions work from the internet."

- We've all done this at one point.

- No shit, purplesmart.

- "Because you're the comic relief, and we enjoy schadenfreude. I mean, we could try one each, but that would require effort on our part. Now dig in, pig-pony."

- "Yeah, fatty mcfatterson!"

- Enter the rape squad.

- I could make a joke on the butt-grabbing, but derpibooru beat me to it.

- Beautiful as a pregnancy! Also, excruciatingly painful and horrible to undergo!

- "Just oppressed! Like I am!"

- New name: Meadowbrook! I'm sure it won't be relevant in future episodes, ever.

- It's an overused meme!

- Shown: A show for little kids.

- Alas, our heroes suffer cutscene idiocy.

- MY GLORIOUS LEADEERRRRR!

- I NEVER KNEW WHAT OPPRESSION COULD BE!
The Cutie Map Pt2 (AKA pony Stalin is a thing now):

- RECAP THINGS INSTEAD OF ACTUAL EPISODE, YAY!

- MY LITTLE STALIN, MY LITTLE STALIN, WHYYYYY?!

- Shown: Still a show for little kids. Now with more realistic brainwashing/oppression!

- Why are her tears gray?

- SUMMON HAWKMAN, OUR SAVIOR!

- Applejack, the element of county.

- Eastern unicorns are a thing now, I guess?

- "How will waiting eons for the ravages of time help us others get out? We're not immortal!"
"Who said anything about you getting out?"

- Peer pressure 2: The pressuring. Also comes with crazy Pinkie face.

- That light bulb's a bit dim.

- "I've conveniently just arrived!"

- Acting!

- "I'm not an enough of an evil bitch yet. Here, have a sadistic choice!"

- I'm sure the experience will be terrible for him.

- CATS AND DOGS LIVING TOGETHER, MASS HYSTERIA!

- I can't tell if that's Pinkie under the equality effect, or her being... Pinkie.

- Don't worry, it's not like the episode villain will do anything terrible during the night.

- Luckily, she did not get stuck and die of suffocation inside a chimney.

- Gee, what a surprise. She's Pony Stalin.

- Say hello to best face #1.

- Obligatory silly.

- You had one job, Fluttershy!

- Oh hey, looks like Episode Best Background Pony (EBBP) fixed it.

- Well, look like somepony's getting lynched.

- And now we get to see the stages of villainous breakdown!

- Stage one: Denial!

- Stage two: Rationalization!

- Stage three: Gloating!

- Stage four: Tumblr outrage!

- Stage five: RAAAAAAA GEEEEEEEEE

- "Well, I guess we'll have to burn her house down."

- Time for a reference only old people will ever get!

- HAIRSTYLING POWERS, ACTIVATE!

- BACKGROUND RESCUE RANGERS TIME!

- Night Rider's cutie mark looks suspiciously like a battleaxe.

- Show that vase who's boss, AJ!

- Unfortunately, one of the rescue squad is a moron with a pointless cutie mark.

- What.

- Somewhere, the internet is abusing an innocent balloon animation.

- Well, the Mane Six are screwed.

- "We've had so much grimdark, this is the only way we can compensate with cuddly friendship morals."

- This episode would be a lot shorter if she aimed to knock her off the bridge.

- Why did she need a cart in the first place?

- More proof that unicorns are OP.

- Well, they're stuck. Excluding the pegasus. Guess they'll have to turn back.

- WHAT?!

- He who controls the balloons, controls the world, I guess?

- And with that, Party Favor rises up to his EBBP status. Plus, innuendo.

- Aaand Double Diamond just wasted enough time for her to get away.

- Or not. Skiing powers, I guess.

- Status quo restored!

- Nooo, change her back!

- Shields, activate! Which she could have used a lot earlier.

- OBLIGATORY MORAL SPEECH!

- "TLDR."

- I'm sure she'll never be back to screw things up for everyone again.

- "It's like I hardly know any of you people I was oppressed with for years!"

- Wilhelm scream!

- Plot point, signing out.

- MAH LI- oh wait, there's new music instead.



So, new episode things to consider:
- Exciting new balloon powers. Apparently Pinkie Pie isn't the only one, or funomancy/partymancy is a thing.
- Fluttershy does not like sports.
- Applejack's country-attitude is part of her cutie mark.
- Cutie marks are a lot more 'powerful' than we might have given them credit.
- Eastern Ponies! Notably, Meadowbrook, who made 8 artifacts of some kind.

What about a town that works on the principle of 'everyone has the incompetence, disaster-magnetism, and delusions of the CMC', and the Mane Six have to prevent the town from being demolished by six different calamities (tornado, volcano, tarrasque, parasprites, pony-eating plants, diamond giants), all happening at the same time.

No, it would better be seven. The seventh is something that the villagers themselves need to work together on, and they can't get it right without the right kind of encouragement from the mane 6. In the villagers trying to fix it, everything goes wrong in a way that they prevent the other 6 things, but now only the mane 6 can take care of this 7th calamity.

Da usual commentaries
Spoiler:
MY LITTLE PANCAKES: PANCAKES PANCAKES PANCAKES

- We interrupt your regular schedule of socialism in Equestria to bring you Animal Farm!

- Weasel approves of cleaning.

- MONTAGEEE!

- Plot point music cue! The castle is evil!

- The face of sincerity.

- This is how x-rated movies start.

- The princess of friendship! Just not to the lesser races.

- I MUST TALK AS UNCONVINCINGLY AS POSSIBLE.

- FREEEEEEEEEHHHHHNDS!

- My Little Pony: Now with more bloom!

- "I will shank you in your sleep for this."

- "Get out of my house, Twilight."

- Someone's sleeping on a rock tonight.

- NO, NOT THE ADORABLE! OH GOD THEY'RE EVEN MAKING MUNCHING NOISES!

- Reused joke! Now in HD!

- No, Pinkie. You cannot go wrong with infinite pancake.

- Unless it's a choking hazard, apparently.

- HER MAJESTY, THE ROYAL PRINCESS.

- I can't stop watching this.

- Trypophobiacs, beware.

- How dreadful, Rarity.

- Well, at least she's getting exercise. Which doesn't matter for a cartoon which laughs in the face of medical science.

- So far, the moral appears to be "Sometimes, your friends will refuse to leave until you threaten them".

- THE PRINCESS OF FRIENDSHIP, TWILIGHT SPARKLE.

- "Hahah, I could have suffocated to death!"

- MULTIPLE-TIME SAVIOR OF THE LAND OF EQUESTRIA.

- Our fandom has wizards in its midst.

- Pinkie cares not for your hygiene.

- I'd have guessed 'You're a nutjob.'

- Well, that explains it. Thank you, exposition pink horse!

- "I learned nothing from the very second friendship lesson I participated in."

- Maybe hire a professional? You know, ponies with cutie marks?

- Rarity, she'd probably prefer face-planting into the pancakes.

- "A word that starts with 'sh' and 'fu'."

- "Except for Spike. And Celestia. And my parents. And brother. And Discord. And the cross-dimensional bipedal doppelgangers of you."

- She can stop whenever she wants to.

- Someone is going to make that plushie toy. You just wait.

- Also, where did he get that?

- Sorry ponies, you just can't ruin pancake day.

- SOOONG!

- Dashie's opening solo feels... off?

- Okay, girls, so you know that you need to get her books. Simple episode.

- Or it reminds you of something entirely different.

- ...or not have literal shit to clean up!

- Okay, that's... actually reasonable, I guess?

- Okay, so posters are cool too but they're of stuff she doesn't like and there's not Daring Do...

- Right, so obviously Rarity will be the one that brings the books.

- Applejack no. Stahp.

- Y'all fucked up.

- Apparently this episode is all about 'Don't say the F or SH word'.

- The voice of the audience, to the rescue.

- Pinkie Pie cares not for your disasters.

- "Screw you, marshmallow pony."

- Do not fuck with marshmallow pony.

- I can't help imagine Twilight is savvy enough to expect a complete disaster and has professionals ready for to fix the problems... which she won't have to pay after her friends take over the bill to save face.

- Activate eye-flutter.

- Apparently, Spike can float now.

- Or you could be SMART about it, and get all the shit out, and get some BOOKS.

- Like you're about to limit break.

- Oh relax, what's the worst they could do to you in a cartoon?

- Who are we kidding, you exist to be tortured for our amusement.

- Well, that answers a some questions and raises a whole slew of new ones.

- Aloe must be related to Twist.

- "But where else am I supposed to put all this jun- I mean all these decorations?"

- Not to mention they're obviously shredded.

- Scrunch-face wars!

- Holy crap, passive-aggressive Fluttershy is something.

- That's... a valid excuse.

- "My life is an existence of recurring agony."

- Apparently, nobody bothered to clean up the charred remains.

- FEELS TIME!

- Well, apparently that's how you stop a flying horse from kidnapping you.

- Well, good job on removing the ONE THING that Twilight could have liked.

- Y'all fucked up. Again.

- Yes, that is obvious, Rarity.

- Acoustics don't give a damn.

- Rarity is still hung up about the portrait.

- Light bulbs are slowly brightening up...

- Books. She wants books.

- Get. Her. Some. Books.

- GET HER SOME GODDAMN BOOKS YOU MORONS.

- Too soon, Pinkie.

- Okay, maybe you're on to something.

- Apparently not.

- SONGS FIX EVERYTHING! APPARENTLY!

- Wait, what the heck are they doing now?

- Y'all fucked up. AGAIN.

- Magic chandelier! Okay, that's sort of impressive.

- How does that work? Magic! Because screw logic!

- FEELS APPROACHING CRITICAL LEVELS!

- Pinkie Pie would be perfect poisoner, if only she tried hard enough.

- And of course, they all vandalize a room each.

- And then everyone was happy... Except for Spike, who got nothing.


Quick & Dirty notes
Spoiler:
Alas, no real 'crazyness' in this episode, but it did bring about some world-building, of sorts. The developers did a surprisingly good 'merger' of the new castle with the old tree. Kudos to them on that! Now they can start doing the proper, interesting episodes.

Sphinxes are a thing, according to the stray Daring Do poster! Finally!

Bulk Biceps is apparently a new (old?) addition to the spa twins employees. And can carry things in a way best not carefully thought of.

Sofas & Quills also sells beds! Or maybe it was only beds the entire time, and everypony else kept getting it wrong. Like with the seamstress guild.

Twilight Sparkle is still an adorable dork of epic proportions.

Earth Pony magic! If AJ's 'instant growth' trick is any indication.

New episode! Now available with bombshell info and lots of fanon stuff!

Commentaries! Now with bonus 'dream-catching' counter!:
- You know, I never understood how they got that top part of the clubhouse to work without having a tree trunk going through the interior of the room.

- FANDOM BOMBSHELL TIME! Apparently apples and apple accessories are obligatory features of the Apple family cutie marks. Incidentially, the 'scissors' tag suddenly is about to get popular.

- It's either that or terrible alternatives.

- IT'S THE LAW!

- Fandom was way ahead of you there, Sweetie.

- Judging by the speed of the trauma symptoms, either Applebloom is one messed up filly, or the entirety of Equestria has the mental fortitude of a pancake.

- THREAAAAAAAAATSSS!

- There's drama, usually. And then you get wings.

- EAT BLANKET!

- "So we'll spend an entire episode answering them instead."

- Except the IRS.

- "Unless you get stuck in a repeating loop of horrific nightmares."

- TIME TO WIN THE BEST SISTER AWARD, Y'ALL.

- Who makes heart-shaped windows on the inside of a room?

- Yup, it's a dream. Nopony can be that cheerful in the morning. NOPONY.

- Pancakes: the pancaking.

- Congratulations! Like Princess Twilight before you, you've ruined the show.

- Yer' not a dog, Bloom. Obligatory jumpy.

- Meanwhile, miles away, somepony is getting buried alive in a sudden avalanche.

- Apparently, you're an apple poisoner. Fetch the arsenic.

- I AM YOUR FATHER, BLOOM.

- Hey, guns work too!

- Twitter gags: The twittening.

- DREAM SIGN #1: Lightning outta thin air! Probably!

- "So naturally, I'm going to abandon this job and give it to a wholly untrained child."

- "Finally, I can die!"

- Nothing can go wrong!

- "Note my use of lightning puns to make the situation more dire."

- Randall Munroe is crying right now.

- That's a dodge worthy of a Dark Souls pro.

- What purpose does calling them achieve?!

- LIKE A BAWS!

- DREAM SIGN #2: Instant clothes-swap, subsequent vanishing.

- DREAM SIGN #3: Those goddamn bitches. Appearing out of nowhere, that is.

- I am SO DONE with your horseapples, DT.

- Yes, by all means, taunt and bully the pony who has DEADLY LIGHTNING FLIES.

- Man, dream DT/SS are upping it up on the obnoxious scale.

- Welcome to Night Vale! Lesson-teaching genies now at half off!

- "This will not come to bite me in my literal behind, ever."

- DREAM SIGN #4: The houses in the background make no architectural sense.

- First time I saw this, I thought Lyra sprouted a mustache.

- Derpy sighting!

- DREAM SIGN #5: Berry Punch shows up running away from town, twice.

- Y'all fucked up.

- LETS GET DANGEROUS!

- Or not. The calls do nothing you numbskull!

- Ponies confirmed for skeleton wars! And Applebloom for an abomination of a tail.

- Well, that didn't work.

- "Five seasons, and we still haven't gotten that barn insured."

- Oh good, it was a dream. The show is un-ruined.

- DREAM SIGN #6: Rooster eggs!

- Sprinkles will not prevent the pancake's wrath.

- "I refuse to learn from past, now-repeating events."

- Show ruined count: 2

- Yup, still a master poisoner cutie mark.

- Apparently, the CMC suck at tick-tac-toe as well.

- Bouncy bouncy!

- It only took you five seasons. I'm sure the show will go strong for another 10.

- Tis' the law.

- GTFO.

- Begone from mine lodginge!

- DREAM SIGN #7: The CMC suck at house management. Wait, that one's plausible.

- Teleport traps suck.

- "Thank Celestia I have the memory of a goldfish. Otherwise I'd have let go of that idiot ball."

- "We're part of the master race now."

- No, not the interior decoration! Anything but that!

- You're tripping balls, Bloom.

- DREAM SIGN #8: Fish punch and doggy biscuits. Also, lack of pancakes.

- DREAM SIGN #9: Missing cranial leather-parasite, vanishing blanket.

- Suddenly, racism.

- Hurr Durr, I'm a dolphin.

- DREAM SIGN #10: Cranial leather-parasite has taken host of the red one. Orange one and red one swapped vocal cords.

- The show is pretty darn determined to teach the young public of Communist methods.

- DREAM SIG-Wait, no, that's normal for Pinkie Pie.

- Show ruined counter: INFINITY

- Best part of the episode.

- Being a viking is a reasonable career choice in Equestria.

- "I did it for the lols."

- Moonbutt, to the rescue!

- "I like metaphors, ok?"

- "You're a CMC member, of COURSE you ruined everything."

- "But mostly, you just suck at sleeping."

- Magical Morals time!

- "Hahah, no. Especially not on the internet."

- "Nonsense, there are two others who are as daft as you."

- Apparently, Luna has access to the Mystery Science Theater.

- Oh show creators, you glorious trolls you.

- "You tried, darling."

- "Time to get my bones broken for a butt-blemish!"

- Wat.

- Daww, the grounded one gets a moment of feels/reprieve.

- "We are amused."

- Yeah, leave those to Luna.

- "Just our qualifications and ability to survive in the job market."

- "Let' send her DT's scalp!"

- Status quo: Restored.

- All hail our new master, pancake.

- "Let's see that white marshmallow and her dictionary sister top that sistering."

- Except dead parents. Heck, sometimes it causes them!



So, serious notables:
Spoiler:
- Babs Seed gets a cutie mark! One that's unexpected, but actually makes a lot of sense! And it keeps the apple motif. Guess that's a thing with them.

- More pancakes! They're a thing apparently.

- Babs cutie mark brings about an implication with Appleblooms: She's not limited to the 'apple farming' field anymore. She can get any kind of talent, so long as it visually has an apple motif in it. But now the question is only worsened: What is her cutie mark? Construction? Crafting? One of the 'joked about' things from the dream? It's pretty open up to possibilities!

- The episode is pretty trolly on the creator's side. From obvious gags at the audience (the wink), to the implied fanon ones (the potion, and pretty much all the things Applebloom worries about being fandom questions), this whole episode is picking fun at us! Even the cutie marks of the other two CMC are trolled (well played, early preview shots. Well played.) about - the 'correct' activity being denied, and opening the possibility that they're NOT the ones they'll get!

- The CMC dreams trilogy is concluded! Luna finishes what was started a season ago. I sort of thought that Luna was acting a bit dickish this episode, what with the repeated inception-style repeats and overly mean nightmares for lesson purposes. But apparently it was Applebloom doing that... Filly has issues. Still could have jumped in there a bit earlier, Moonbutt.

- The barn is demolished, again. Poor place is a joke now.

- The dreams have a LOT of unexpected details in them. From subtle changes (they even keep them in the different-perspective shots!), to obvious 'hints' that stuff is a dream, it goes from seemingly normal to bat-shit crazy very fast.

- Another interesting tidbit: Rarity apparently 'cared' enough to vote a '1', compared to the other two's 'zero', in Sweetie's nightmare. This is notable since it is actually what Sweetie Belle believes/fears her sister would act.

- Overall, this episode is both a love letter to the CMC (yay flying Scootaloo!), and a sort of 'safety net' of sorts for the shows future interactions with the CMC. It seems to hint that the trio might finally get their cutie marks! And if not, well, the status quo can endure, now that practically all questions the fandom's 'worries' regarding the CMC's cutie marks have been laid to rest.

Just a heads up Zarhon, the uploader you are linking to for the episode is removing them one week after they air, to avoid copyright problems. You might want to remove those dead links when that happens...

Anyway, yeah, MLP confirmed for Pro-Pancake and Anti-Twitter...

Anyone notice Pinkie Pie appears in her chicken outfit at 15:25. Once an episode appearance must be in her in her season 4 contract. Smile

(P.S. For those curious, because I was, Pinkie Pie didn't appear in three Season 4 episodes. Flight to the Finish, Somepony to Watch Over Me, and Leap of Faith...)

Meanwhile, in the new episode, everyone's favorite rainbow colored eco-terrorist and "Vaccines cause Autism" crier tries to murder her pet, decimates the ecosystem and economy of not only ponyville but her hometown of Cloudsdale, tells Fluttershy that she sucks at animals, and makes Twilight Sparkle make the cringing-est Meme reference in the series to date. All because she can't handle her pet being away for a few months because she apparently has absolutely no other companionship in the world.

When Rainbow Dash goes for Worst Pony, she goes for the fucking gold.

Unrelated, R63 aged up Scootaloo sighted, someone's fanfic is getting in my episode.
