It's time for me to gush about this weeks episode. Spoilers ahead!
Abusive husband Angel Bunny is now canon.
Just let him starve, Fluttershy! He'll eat eventually!
Oh, God, valley girl ponies.
Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity
.I totally ship Flutterpie AND Rarity/Fluttershy
but this kind of made me realize I like Flutterpie better than Rarity/Fluttershy
Still, aside from my compulsive need to ship, I like that Pinkie Pie and Rarity actually interacted with each other outside of being thrown into situations together or Rarity just being confused by Pinkie Pie in general. I don't think we've actually seen them work together as friends, yet! Need MOAR character interaction 'tween characters who don't often interact by themselves!!
RARITY! Again using your womanly wiles?!
Pinkie Pie as Bugs Bunny
.makes perfect sense
.it truly does
Cherry seller guy should be sued for price gouging!! And Fluttershy, haven't you ever learned not to let other ponies know how much you need to buy something? You should go to market more and learn to haggle
Pshh, I learned that as a kid on a trip to Mexico. My mother taught me well *nod nod*
Pinkie Pie burying her head in the dirt
You outwardly do what we inwardly WANT to do at times, Pinkie!
I would have gotten rid of Angel at that point if I went through all that trouble, and he threw the food out the door. Make him clean it up, only give him that food until he ate it dirt covered food and all then give him pellets for a week before giving him the good stuff again. That, or find a new home. Cause no. Just no.
Now Fluttershy is doing the "Celestia is my witness" thing?
BonBon is such a bitch!!! Almost everytime she actually interacts with one of the mane six, she's scowling for some reason!!
The Minotaur reminds me of the guy who battled against Toph when we first met her in Avatar, Last Airbender. What was is name? The Boulder!
Bon Bon will never have the same voice
And I hate it when people do that on the road, blocking the road because they're having a conversation. If only it were that easy to get them to move!
I'm sorry, but when Fluttershy gets the mare to move to the back of the line, I felt empowered, haha! That's happened to me before and I don't do anything about it
I may have gotten Twilight Sparkle as the pony I'm most like in that pony test (and I am a lot like her), but I relate a lot to Fluttershy, which is probably why she's my least favorite >_< I hate confrontation, too, Fluttershy!! I really try to avoid it as much as I can
WHERE DID RARITY COME FROM!?! They were at the Sugarcube Corner!! She was just there?!
They have taxis in Ponyville?
I felt so bad when the mailstallion tried to put the mail in the bird house. That's just sad
There's a Ponyville tower?
I can't believe how much I relate to Fluttershy in this episode. When she's saying how she her friends want her to go back to her old self so they can walk all over her again
It's a fine line, Fluttershy!
.don't make Pinkie Pie cry
Rarity's crying was hilarious!
At least Fluttershy realized what she was doing on her own, unlike RD who had to have it spelled out for her in Mare Do Well.
She boarded up her house? That was a bit overdramatic, Flutters >_<
4th wall breaking when the Minotaur comes along, and both Pinkie and Rarity look around like, "Who is he showing off for?" Hehe.
Pinkie Pie taking on the Minataur
.I totally respect her more for that
.even if she did end up in the mud, eaten by goats.
I feel like Iron Will is a homage to Last Air Bender jokes, even though it's probably not it. He at once reminds me "The Boulder" as well as Sokka. Anypony else feel that way?
Rarity close Pinkie's mouth
All in all, I would give this episode probably about a 4 out of 5. It was a little painful to watch at times, at least for me, to see how much of a pushover Fluttershy is. Then again, like I said, I relate to Fluttershy too much when it comes to her aversion to confrontation. I've been admonished by friends and family for not sticking up for myself, but then when I try to, well, let's just say I understood how she felt when her friends confronted her about it. But it was very entertaining, quite funny at times, and gave us some development for Fluttershy...so it's all good.
Your thoughts on the episode?
