Ahem. Based on the below alternate summary, this one could be a stepping stone on the way to something...interesting, if certain rumors that circulated before the season premiere are true.
Bats!” — When Applejack’s beautiful orchard falls under attack on Apple Bucking Day, it is clear that the dreaded Vampire Fruitbats have returned and Applejack is ready to take drastic measures to protect the orchard. However, the always compassionate Fluttershy argues for a more humane plan, which causes conflict between the two and could cost them their friendship, on “My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic,” Saturday, December 28 at 10:30 a.m. ET/ 7:30 a.m. PT on the Hub Network.
Anyhow, the show is always at its best when the conflict is caused by the casts' differing personalities, which is something we haven't gotten enough of post-"Lesson Zero". Looking forward to this one.
