Really good episode. I got the vibe that it was an allegory for drug abuse since something that was “supposed” to make a character feel better ended up spiraling totally out of control and affecting the people around her. But maybe I was looking too deep. I really liked it, but I was disappointed that it didn’t lead up to a duel between Rarity and Twilight.

That and the resolution came way too quickly. I seriously almost though it was going to end with the Dark Magic carrying over into future episodes.

1. It’s probably best that Twilight and Rarity didn’t end up dueling. If that had happened, people would have complained about Twilight stealing the spotlight again, a la “It Ain’t Easy Being Breezies”.
2. Who says the dark magic won’t carry over into future episodes? It couldn’t have gone back into the book, since Spike destroyed it, so after being expelled from Rarity, it floated away to parts unknown.

So I watched the new episode, and I gotta say, Rarity’s got horrible taste in renovations when her idea of improving everything is just make it shiny and covered with jewels. Edward Elric has more taste than her. And he made a baseball bat with his face on it.

P.S. Sorry to those that thought that Rarity was gonna be possessed by Chrysalis….okay, no not really, you really thought they would pull that for any episode that’s not a premiere or finale?

You know, the recent episode reminds me of that one episode of Ed, Edd, and Eddy, where the Eds have to go through a long and tedious trading process in order to get eggs for the omelet.

Does anyone else remember that episode?

If this episode had just focused on Dash and Flutters, it could’ve been a whole lot better. But as it stands, it feels like pointless filler to me, even more so than “Castle Mane-ia”. Twilight is really the only exception, though I find it odd they waited this long to have her do something princess-y. Better late than never, but still…

Also, did anyone else think the beastmaster looked like Kratos? I wonder if that was intentional.

I think I just realized something out about Rainbow Dash in this episode. She only has about 3 defining characteristics that could be of any use in a story because no one wants to know about how she leaves a rainbow streak everywhere she goes Flying, Wonderbolt obsession and fan of Daring Do. No really, those are the only things to her. I’m pretty sure Daring Do was only added to keep her from being a repeating record. So much for being deep, complex characters huh?

The episode was…pointless actually. Nothing was really solved or even at risk. It was a preschool moral on all sides. But it’s not like anything matters besides potential reaction faces.

Since Easter’s coming up, I think it would be kind of cute if MLP did something vaguely religion oriented for this weeks episode. Of course, there’s a million reasons that can never happen.

What about “Leap of faith” ?

And I don’t know what the bigg fuss is about, can’t anyone be civil about it or what?
I’m religious, I’m not a saint, but I am, and even so I think the lessons in those episodes are valuable.

-The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence
(there are a lot of weird things that we can’t still explain and that doesn’t mean they dont happen)
-Faith is a great thing, but if it’s used to fuel up the wrong actions is caustic.

Pony? A label created by the Apples to give voice to their destruction. In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant. We simply… are.

Nah, I’m just being silly. But at any rate, there seems to be so many Bronies.
