Ruminations:
So we have our first Dashie episode of the season, and I'm excited. I love Rainbow Dash, and always look forward to whatever life lessons it is she's going to learn. This time around, it looks like we're going to get sentimental Dash, which we don't often get to see, which will be nice, because I've always thought Dashie was at her cutest when she's sentimental and sweet (it looks good on her).

I believe premiere time is now 11:30 Eastern.

Also, eh? There hasn't been a winter since Tank arrived? But... Hearth's Warming... and about fifty other episodes of stuff... how... what... ohh, brain hurt now.

Although, since ponies are responsible for changing the seasons, Dashie stopping winter from happening doesn't sound as bonkers as it might otherwise be!

Ah, yes, you're right! The 11:00 AM show time is the previous week's episode, and it's now 11:30. Thanks DarkHorizon!

Was wondering where this thread was!

What I'm about to say shouldn't spoil anything. I keep realizing how each pony struggles with her element to some degree. Rainbow Dash struggles a lot. Loyalty seems to cause a pony a lot of grief, I think, because you're loyal to many things.

Hmm, RD really went overboard this week and at times it was stretching credibility even for her hijinks.

We learn more about the weather, seasons, see the Running of the Leaves again briefly which was a nice little shoutout.

It kind of rushed a long here and there until the intervention when a lot of stuff just seemed to get dropped. But it has character development throughout so most of it was just plot setup.



It was a nice episode, lots more crazy faces, character moments, a little out of character though at times but also moving at one point.

Solid B.

Hoo boy! That was a great episode! There are so many things that were noteworthy!



All in all, a fantastic episode, and I think it is currently the best episode of the season so far. It easily gets an "A" from me!

The show often gets surprisingly deep.

It's so sweet and adorable. It's no wonder she's best pony.
