She's definitly going to choose Canterlot, derp.
hmmm... yep. indeed
maybe its to fill in for her absence in that one luna episode
but whos complaining :D
Wow, we're getting these way ahead of the time they air. Yay! More things to discuss during the wait for more pony!
Yes another Rarity ep!! AJ, Fluttershy and Pinkie are getting the short shrift this season!
Sounds like it'll be awesome!
Clearly this is the episode where Rarity gets sent to Canterlot and gets replaced by my super cool OC pony Rainstorm Trot!! :DDD
Poor Applejack. She's getting shifted almost as much as Luna in terms of episodic depth.
@naahdudeFIRE UP THE MOON CANON
rarity is going to YOUR FACE
I know what this reminds me of, that Simpsons episode where Marge joins the Country Club.
I'm all for Rarity getting the spotlight but I would really like to see some AJ or Pinkie development.
obviously, she'll choose her friends.though Season 2 might just fuck with us.
looks like the updates are weekly atm, cheers
Tomorrow's a Sweetie Belle(and Rarity) epNext is ApplebloomThen 2 of DashNow Rarity again.Yes, poor Applejack, Pinkie and Fluttershy. No episodes centered on them yet. Can't wait to see them.
I'm waiting for her to just peace out from the show as we all watch with our jaws on the floor.
They're trying to compensate for her absence during Nightmare Night.
Now who could those "important social connections in Canterlot" be?
Why are they putting all the Rarity and Rainbow Dash episodes in the first episodes instead of more of a balance? Seems like it'd make greater sense to organize it by what the fans miss seeing, evident by last episode's popularity.
we need more Luna*cough*and maybe a season or two of Octavia*cough*
Episode 10 is called "giving dangerously":3
@FlutterfanI had a similar thought of that. I can't remember for the life of me what trope it is, but it's of the "person wants high society, high society comes, high society forces a decision between them or the old life, person chooses the old life because she can't anyone who can't respect a balance of the two" variety. Cue Aesop on "Grass is always Greener", "Loved ones are more important than ambition", etc.I may be wrong nonetheless.
The Return of Harmony 1The Return of Harmony 2Lesson ZeroLuna EclipsedSisterhooves SocialThe Cutie PoxMay the Best Pet Win!The Mysterious Mare Do WellSweet and Elite
can't STAND anyone, even.
@Whiskra I'm hoping we'll get even more pony parodies of people! As nice as it'd be to have Photo Finish or Sapphire Shores or... that other guy whose name I can't remember... come back (because recurring characters are awesome), the more parodies, the better.
Poor Pinkie, AJ, and Fluttershy.Don't feel down you three. There's still 17 episodes to go plus a confirmed third season, that's plenty of time for everyone to get their share of the spotlight.
Sounds nice :)
@LunaisbestponyYup. Looking at the episode order it felt like the first episodes were too much Twilight. Return of Harmony 1 & 2 had Twilight front and center, Lesson Zero was all Twilight and even Luna Eclipsed was Luna and Twilight.I would've switched Lesson Zero with Sister Hooves Social to give it more balance.
This has a lot of potential to flesh out Rarity's character more. I'm excited.
I NEED APPLEJACK NAO DX
Holy crap!!! This is almost like my failed fic "The rise and fall of a star named Rarity" except I never got to write down the part where she has to choose between Manehatten (in my fics case) and the Mane 6 cause it wasnt getting good feedback (actually any feed back....)
Let's see, important social connections, Canterlot which we can assume is the capital, capital cities usually have people who are "well connected" and have great influence over both business and government... By god, she's connected with a Family isn't she?
try to remember these episodes were done while season 1 was still going. If we ask them enough they might try to fit in some extra AJ episodes into season 4.(don't mean that in a disrespectful way as I love AJ more then the next pony just pointing out that all the season 2 episodes are pretty much done)
If episode 10 isn't an Applejack, Pinkie Pie, or Fluttershy episode, I MAY HAVE OT DO SOMETHING DRASTIC!
Silly ponies... just because the episodes are Rarity-centric (or at least in terms of the descriptions we have) doesn't necessarily mean the other ponies won't have decent roles or see meaningful character development as well. Tomorrow's episode may even end up being more about Sweetie than Rarity, kind of like how Apple Bloom had her spotlight episode before. And/or feature the Apple sisters heavily as well. I guess we shall just have to wait and see!
@LunaisbestponyWell, if I remember correctly, most of these S2 episodes were finished or already in development before the fanbase even became prominent.Besides, if the show started catering to what the bronies wanted instead of what everyone wanted, the show would lose a lot of it's charm.Besides, the whole appeal of Luna is that we know so little about her. If we saw her every week, she'd become just another pony.
I'm sure a lot of fanfics have explored this issue, it's an obvious idea given Rarity's character. Glad to see they're doing it in the actual show.
hmm, so far there have been 2 twilight sparkle eps (I count luna eclipse as one) 2 rainbow dash, and 2 rarity, with a CMA ep mixed in. I'm seeing a bit of a pattern is all.
Rarity requires constant attention from the writers in order to make sure her character is more than a caricature, so she gets a lot of episodes. It also doesn't hurt that she is best pony. Ahem! Anyway, there are 14 episodes after this one for Pinkie, Fluttershy, and AJ. If it's anything like Season 1, character-centric episodes tend to clump together.
I'm going to make a prediction. She'll spend half the episode bouncing back and forth between going, at the end her friends will tell her to go for it, then she'll turn around just before it's finalized.After all, she'll know she's REALLY good when ponies find her no matter where she is. For some reason seeing that last sentence typed out irks me.
Hopefully this will see the return of Photo Finish, Sapphire Shores or Hoity Toity, or even better, the introduction of some new famous pony for us to drool over!
Oh and I noticed no more breaks between episodes. Every Saturday a new episode from tomorrow until Dec 3!!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_My_Little_Pony:_Friendship_Is_Magic_episodes
I really like the sound of that premise, but damn I need more Applejack episodes!
Rarity chooses Canterlot, Applejack and Rainbow Dash get annoyed. Rarity realizes the horrible mistake she's made after it's not what she was expecting, she apologizes to everypony. They all eventually forgive her. Twilight writes letter to Celestia. The End...My Little Pony..*hums song*xDCan't wait to see tomorrow's episode. Since it will be about Sweetie Belle, as well as Rarity. And then after that will be a Applebloom/CMC episode yay.
@WizardWannabe Agreed.Seriously, RD is has 2 scheduled and so does Rarity, and there has been ONE AJ episode in the whole of season one and these planned episodes combined. What the hell, writers?
This season has been hit after hit. At this rate, the sky's the limit!
Am I the only one who heard a Dun, DUN, DUNNNNNNN!!!when I read that synopsis?
... Excuse me while I send Rarity to the moon for ten or so episodes. And fill her slots with Applejack.
O.O!!!!!! HOLY SHIT! I actually speculated this on ponychan! this is epic!!!!
Why is everyone talking about Rarity and not the hilariously awesome oneshot characters that are sure to steal the spotlight?I mean, come on. It's just Rarity.*ducks and covers*
I hope one of the mane 6 gets some character development out of this episode, like Rarity got in Sonic Rainboom.
Of course, the writers could be doing something a bit sneaky on this one. It could, for instance, be that Rarity is choosing Canterlot because she thinks that her friends expect it of her; upon discovering that they want her to stay in town as much as she herself REALLY does, Derpy Hooves will get her first real speaking line that isn't a gasp or grumbling about Fluttershy when she goes all M Night on us and says "WHAT A TWIST!!"
Hmm... I wonder which option she will choose... lolI think many people could have seen an episode along these lines coming along at some point. It's a classical crossroads many people have had to deal with at one time or another. Family/friends vs your career and the like. I know that decision as well.
Yay! More Rarity. She had only a minor role in the first three episodes and was missing entirely from the fourth, so it's not like she's overexposed this season.Additionally, through the first half of the first season Applejack had gotten starring roles in AppleBuck Season, Look Before You Sleep, Fall Weather Friends and her little sister starred in The Call of the Cutie. Reading the description of those people must have thought the Applejack train was never going to end.I'm sure they'll spread the love around.
@Aquaman52 *Fires Shotgun* Dang it he ducked! Besides, we all know Rarity is best pony.
@Aquaman52Damn it your right, what fashion icon will be parodied this Rarity episode. Michael Kors? No wait, he's basically Hoity Toity's snarky side. Christian Seriano pony! Make it happen MLP!
Im alright with rarity, just not a fan of rarity episodes
Rarity leaving Ponyville?This may be... THEWORSTPOSSIBLE THING!
Forget Applejack, what about Fluttershy? D:
YEEEEESSSS MOORRRREEEEE RRRRAAAAARRRRIIIITTTYYY
@ScribejayEEEK you are right... omigoshomigosh! Or even better, an Austin Scarlett pony!! Ack~~...That's it, if such a thing does not happen, I am going to create that OC pony myself. MYSELF! And it shall be glorious!
I really hate to say this; but I almost want Rarity choose her connections in Canterlot over her friends. I know that sounds like something that's very contrary to the show's central theme, but it sets up a perfect scenario for the Aesop that you have to let your friends have a life that doesn't always involve you. Which is a perfectly valid life lesson.
! ...I sense character development incoming.
Applejack is just so awesome, she doesn't need her own episodes....but I won't complain if she gets one soon....please?
ok AJ really REALLY REALLY needs an episode.she's actually probably my least favorite of the main 6, but come on she's really only had ONE episode that was really focused on her,she was also one of the main focus's in Look Before you sleep.other than that she's pretty much just had supporting roles.
@MissFlightFluttershy had plenty of episodes last season compared to AJ.
It's gonna air on my birthday :D
YES ANOTHER RARITY EPISODE.But... Poor AJ. She's barely had any episode of her own so far. :(
"important social connections"Hmm...I wonder what they mean by that...An old friend of hers? Another fashion designer? Both?I am intrigued.But seriously, we need another Applejack episode. The poor girl gets no love...
Rarity chooses friends, get blackballed from the elitist Fashion Scene, spends the rest of her life in Ponyville making dresses for nobodies, just a regular schnook./episode"I'll keep it short and sweet. Family, religion, friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business."- Mr. Burns
Hey, if Dash got two episodes in a row, maybe Applejack has like 3 episodes in a row in the second half of the season? I recall it took over half a season for Dash and Pinkie Pie to get their own episodes. That said, give AJ an episode soon. She only got episode 4 for herself, anything else considered her she has always had to share with someone else.Oh well, Rarity is still good. Probably not going to be the "Let your friends go and do what they want in life." Moral, but who knows. Hopefully Rarity Social Connection isn't a jerk like Gilda was.
I like the sound of this! Since Rarity is getting this episode to herself, I'm hoping tomorrow's will focus more on Sweetie Belle than her.
@MojoApplejack is also the main focus in Fall Weather Friends.
Plenty of eps left folks.....With that said if I don't see a Fluttershy or AJ ep soon I lose my effing mind. (Pinkie doesn't count because she needs to automatically be a part of every ep to some degree - She's just too random not to be!)
@army128ah yeah she a major character there too.though it was shared with Dash.
@Jacky2734Hmm. I guess I've failed at being updated. Third season is greenlit??There's not enough Y's A's and even more Y's in the world! :D
Hmmm...this could be painfully generic, or totally awesome. With Rarity it can only go to one extreme or another.I'll hold off on panicking until after tomorrow's episode.*still waiting for a Pinkie episode this season*
also a Celestia episode could be awesome.
HURRR... WHAT ABOUT A TWILIGHT EPISODE?!?!
To be entirely honest, I can see why they're having so many RD/Rarity episodes. Think back to the first season; some of the best episodes featured RD or Rarity, like Suited for Success (and one of my personal favourites; a Dog and Pony Show), and of course, Sonic Rainboom.They're some of my favourite ponies, but I'm really hoping they don't over-exploit these characters. The pet episode idea seems kinda silly; especially since she already has a pet chicken.
Important social connections in Canterlot? Perhaps we're going to see Hoity Toity. Photo Finish or Sapphire Shores again. Could be interesting, especially if it's Photo Finish.Anyway there are still 16 episodes left. I'm sure there will be at last one AJ episode as well as a Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie episode. Even if there's at least one more CMC episode (not couting Cutie Pox).
@pg13fresnoI though Lesson Zero sounded generic when I first read the synopsis.it's probably my favorite episode now.
@RenfieldI think I found it.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/InWithTheInCrowd A character is afforded entrance to an elite group by virtue of an unexpected success or new connections. If he is already one of the local elite, the new group he joins is even more so - more exclusive or secretive, or traveling in even higher social circles, or recognized over a larger geographical area - something with some cachet. The group could be a winning sports team, a selective private club, or just the "in" clique of "beautiful people".Enjoying his newfound elevation, he snubs or is pressured to snub his old friends, who respond with anger or dismay at his apparent betrayal. However, after extended exposure to the members of his new social circle, he invariably finds them shallow and/or bigoted, particularly against some faction represented in his previous social circle. At the risk of ruining any future chance for social improvement, he leaves his new clique and returns to the forgiving arms of his original band of friends.
Another episode for Rarity? Woo!
@WhiteDiamonds Exactly. :) Some people need to have more faith in the writers. ;) Watching it like this, episode by episode, it seems a lot more 'unbalanced', rather than watching all episodes in a big heap (as was the case for people who got into the fandom later on). Pinkie Pie for one has prominent roles in about every episode, and A.J., though she doesn't have many episodes centered around her, usually has a pretty significant role in each episode. No character really gets left behind, which is more than can be said for too many other shows. These writers know what they're doing, and we can be pretty certain ALL the characters will play their part in upcoming episodes. I'd rather watch the episodes first, and just enjoy them for what they are, before drawing any conclusions. A one-sentience synopsis isn't much to judge by. ;)
@naahdudeNaaaaaaaaaah Dude XD
New episode! yay! it cures my heart! <3
@MudPuppyOh, thank you! Nice to know somepony agrees with me, anyway! ^_^@mycutiemarkisagunHorribly sad and depressing as that is, it is also surprisingly profound... I do have to laud you for putting that so concisely yet eloquently, dear. *polite clapping*....... But now the only thing I can think of is how UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS it would be to see a ponified rendition of Project Runway in an episode (or even America's Next Top Model, with a pony version of Tyra and Photo Finish as the episode's elite guest photographer, squeeee~!!). I seriously think I would experience blissful heart palpitations if this fantasy were ever to be realized, unlikely though that is~A pony can dream, I suppose.
It's like everypony suddenly forgot Look Before You Sleep, Fall Weather Friends, Over A Barrel, Call of the Cutie, and Show Stoppers existed. Applebuck Season (apparently) is the only Applejack episode, ever. FOREVER!!!Those episodes focused on her, her relationship with another, or a major aspect of her life and/or family. Kinda hard to say AJ isn't getting any love when there's a good chunk of it right there, staring you in the face.I would like to see, however, a few more Pinkie Pie episodes. Can't get enough of her. Needs an epic (insert awesome game of some sort) duel between her and Derpy.
@Sethisto*CannonToday's grammar nazi session has been brought to you by the Equestrian Society for Correct Word Usage. Driving Equestria insane since the dawn of the Celestian era.
@WhiskraObviously, she aims to apologize for that dreadful outburst at the gala, and make some failed to return to my side. I mean who else could possibly withstand the presence of one such as her?
Well this episode was bound to happen, given her nature and desire for all things sophisticated and glamorous. Should be nice to see how she handles it. Those she chose between her friends who are always there for her or her connections that can help her fullfil her dreams.All I know is that I'm expecting to see at least one befazzled "twitch" come out of her before this episode is done.
AppleJack really needs more episodes to her self.
I think we should all panic and say that Applejack will never get an episode again ever, and the show is ruined forever.Or, just go with the flow. I dont like Dash, yet I have to, poor me, sit through TWO NEW episodes of ponies about her. My life is sooo bad.
Rarity episodes are always great. I still can't wait to see what they'll do with Pinkie, I hope she gets an episode soon. And as much as I find Applejack boring, she does need an episode soon...
Someone working on the show really likes Rarity and I'm not complaining. She's my favorite pony. I do feel bad for AJ though she's only had one episode focusing on her and that one was only memorable because it had "Baked Bads." She seems to be the hardest to write for since maybe she works best when she's helping her friends.
Who's a silly pony, You're a silly pony, Who is, you is... No, wait. really? Who is. I haven't seen a silly pony in ages. Mind raped bizzaro world ponies, dementedly insane ponies, Archaically intimidating ancient gothic ponies who are deep down sad and just wanting new friends...But no silly ponies, so who?
^Just kidding. I like AJ and I'm sure she'll get some fair screen time this season! :)
Applejack has to be phased out of the mane cast to make room for the new 'funny-accent' character, Bon Bon.And Luna Eclipsed was a Pinkie Episode. If you watch the youtube video with only her parts in it, you get the whole plot, condensed!
This sounds like that RariJack fic that popped up a while back O_O
Will Prince Blueblood make a second apperance???we will have to wait and see...
Well I'm pretty sure there will be a shit-ton of AJ in the Applebloom episode.Also relatively sure there will be plenty of Fluttershy in the new one.
Well obviously she's gonna choose her friends when it comes down to it. Much as she likes that high class crap, her friends are way more important to her.
fluttershy episodes are boring imo
Watch her choose Canterlot in the end and blow all of our minds to the goddamned moon.
These episodes throw common sense out the window. That's why they're so good. I'm guessing she picks Canterlot and Fluttershy burns down her new shop... eh heh..anyway...Maybe the description is misleading? Maybe she's not planning to move, maybe her fancy friends just start taking up all her time?
in Rarity's defense I will say that, aside from her popularity and the fact that she wasn't around in Luna Eclipsed, even when an episode is focused on one character, it might also put some light on her relationship with the rest... take for example Suited for Success, it was mostly about Rarity making the dresses, but it was also revolving about how the other 5 ranted about their respective dresses and then apologizing after the mess they caused and making up for it...when it comes to friendship, even if the episode is focused on one character, you'll always get to see development from the others as well
@Dr. Henry KillingerNo way that word usage is cannon.
Season 1: People complain over overwhelming amount of Rarity centric episodesSeason 2: MOAR RARITY!!!The synopsis wreaks of "we're building up to a really great episode, so here's some filler". Still, episodes like these seem to have the best character interactions and effective jokes. I'm excited.
Applejack is one of my favourites, so she needs an episode, but so is Rarity... Not to mention Twilight... And Fluttershy. Can't forget about Pinkie... Also Rainbow Dash...Yes, AJ needs an episode. D:
I wonder if the episode will have a guest star as their ponified variant.
9 episode synopses down, and no focus on Pinkie, Fluttershy, or Applejack yet. And in the case of Applejack, there's really been only 1 episode that primarily featured her.Poor AJ.
My moral is: The most important thing than ANY OTHER awesome, sophisticated thing are YOUR FRIENDS. Stick to your friends!My prediction...
Hope I'm wrong but that sounds like a 'Rarity loses her connections in Canterlot' episode to me. As much as I like Rarity that doesn't sound very promising.If we can't have an Applejack episode maybe at least an Applejack-has-kind-of-important-role episode like Over a Barrel?
Derpy will get her own episode before applejack does :'[
@FlutterfanWatch the pony that Rarity ditches these creeps for wear a Stetson and not be aware that she speaks with an accent; WHEN that happens, we can declare an official Applejack episode.
What the hell. JUST TODAY i had the idea for EXACTLY THIS EPISODE.
@Mojo True, but I personally think you can never have too much Fluttershy. :D Maybe they're saving an epic Applejack episode...
Predicting Photo Finish, Hoity Toity, and/or Sapphire Shores will be in this one.
Next episode better be a Applejack episode!And if there's no Applejack episodes, then I'll punch myself in the balls.
Question? How is anything filler in an Episodic series?
@Sandovalannnnnnnndddd..... still to this day only "Lesson Zero" comes close to the awesome that is "DragonShy", so I kindly disagree. In fact this is the ep that made me see the obvious light of Fluttershy being best pony ;)
They really do read our fanfics
I'm getting worried that Applejack's character writing won't be able to compete with the other ponies. Hasbro buy the rights to the fanfiction Ah ain't got no Ack-cent and made that an episode. I think that will improve AJs popularity. As happy as I am to see an episode from my second favourite pony Rarity. This show needs more AJ
>>goes to wikipedia>>see it the episode list>>see's episode 9 description>>james bond tier superspy>>bond tier superspy>>superspy>>wikipediayeah i dont think so
A little off topic but I just saw that Bronystate is showing:1) V for effin' VANDETTA2) Lesson Zero3) FluttershyIt's LIKE SOMEONE OVER THERE IS REAFDING MY DAMN MIND! (#*$(&@*)#@@# GET OUTTA MY HEAD!
*cough* by "Fluttershy", I of course mean "Dragonshy"*cough*
Hm, the synopsis itself sounds pretty generic, but then, so did Lesson Zero's. I'm sure it will be interesting, and Rarity episodes are always funny. I just hope we get a Pinkie Pie episode soon! Or Applejack. Or, hell, even another Twilight one!RD and Fluttershy episodes are always kinda boring to me; don't know why. :I
but... we don't want rarity :(
@lemyThat 'we' meaning 'me' thing only works with Luna :P
There are most likely 17 other episodes coming after this one, so there's plenty of time for us to get episodes about Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Big Ma- I mean Applejack
This is the same thing that happened in season 1.The front half was loaded with Applejack episodes while the latter half she was shafted hardcore.Let's hope the tables are flipped this time.
The season is still young, I'm sure they'll get around to covering everyone's respective favorite ponies eventually.
Someone pointed out that this means there aren't going to be any more breaks between new episodes at least until Dec. 3. That's good, since all the advance info had me worried they might overshoot December without doing a holiday story.I'm betting that little Pip wasn't introduced earlier just for fun, amiright? Does a Pony version of Dickens A Christmas Carol count as 'grimlight'?
Another episode for potential Seaty Belt? This'll go down well on the podcast xD
Woah. Is Rarity finally getting a break in the fashion scene?
Sounds like a great episode :D
that's a dangerous thing to fall sleep next to.sweetie belle, not the sewing machine.
i can see so many memes coming off this! XD
I'd just like to point out that the vast majority of meborable moments for each character DID NOT come from an episode focused on them.
H/\/\/\/\/\/\...7|-|15 50µN5 ¶µ173 ℗|20m151|\|6
@Vermillion TwilightOh by Celestia I hope not. Christmas Carol adaptations have been done to death. Even though FiM would still put some awesome in there, it's still been overdone.
@CalumonThat's a good thing.
Dammit! Where's our Applejack episode?!Ah well, at least this episode calls back to the first episode of the series, in which Rarity states her desire to live in Canterlot. I like callbacks like that.
my two fav characters are being left out :(Fluttershy n Pinkie Pi
@DPV111 But also note that some of their best moments have also come from Episodes that focused on them. Rarity singing Art of the Dress, Fluttershy standing up to a Dragon, Rainbow Dash saving the day in Sonic Rainboom, Pinkie Pie going insane in Party of One.Poor Applejack should have a really defining moment for her. Something which an episode that focuses on her should give her.
@DPV111 Good point.
Yay More Rarity!
Y'know, I dont think I saw one comment on how the events in this episode will affect Sweetie Belle. I mean, does she go with Rarity, do we get to see their parents?
I loathe episodes where the show tries to glorify friends who, coincidentally and/or outright intend to, impede the character's career/romance/whatever. But I have faith in the writing staff and I'll assume the synopsis is badly worded or they are going to do something new and exciting with the premise.
Honestly, the episodes this season so far seem to pick a different pony as the "lead" per episode:TwilightLunaSweetieApple BloomMore likely Scootaloo than Dash (for a couple of reasons)DashRaritySo I'm sure we'll see Pinkie, AJ, and Fluttershy getting their time in the spotlight back soon. Really, Rarity only had two episodes to herself in season 1 - Suited for Success and A Dog and Pony Show. Look Before You Sleep focused on her and AJ, and Green Isn't Your Color focused on her and Fluttershy.(Both with Twilight kind of playing the middlepony.)Pinkie only really had Party of One to herself. Dash... well, Dash shared Griffon the Brush-Off with Pinkie and that hosebeast Gilda, and Sonic Rainboom was shared with Rarity. (Then again, Cutie Mark Chronicles was pretty much WHERE IS RAINBOW DASH?" "Oh, she was responsible for everypony's Cutie Mark lol")Fluttershy had Dragonshy and A Bird In the Hoof to herself, AND she got the last mental breakdown in season 1. Plus she shared Stare Master with the CMCs, already mentioned Green Isn't Your Color above.So, yeah, AJ and Pinkie are maybe ONE solo episode short compared to Rarity and Fluttershy (and if you count Feeling Pinkie Keen as a wholly Pinkie episode instead of Pinkie and Twilight, well...)And we'll probably get those two fixed up shortly.It'll be fine. This is only episode 9 of 26. Calm down, guys.
Wooo! more Rarity! Is anyone else thinking this might me a mental breakdown episode?
Whoo! More Rarity! Perhaps Luna will make another appearance here...?
I'm calling it now, guys.Something like Hoity Toity happens again, and Rarity gets to dodge the moral dilemma entirely.
Sounds like the sort of thing a fanfic would be about to me, except that, well, it's canon. o_oI'm crossing my fingers in the hope that "important social connections in Canterlot" means sekrit blood relations with Luna, lol jk
Poor poor Applejackyea rarity
When is Fluttershy going to get an episode? Grrr...
I wonder if they ever will have a nyx episode...
@SgtGarand nyx avatar pic? ^-^/)(\^-^brohoof!
@cadeNo, they never will. Hopefully.
Its sad to say that now the Fanon that Dinky is Ditzys' daughter might be dead. It showed Dinky with her sister who was pink and about the same age as Ditzy. NOOOOOOOOO
Oh what? D:No Scootaloo episode?! D:No! Not cool, not cool! </3
Applejack is the best pony and deserves more episodes.
This airs on my birthday! All the yesses in the world arent enought right now!Rarity - on my birthday!SO AWESOME! :3
Applejack was pretty prominent in the later portions of this episode...The farmer left some pretty profound advice for Rarity.I'd say this episode outright showcased Applejack and Applebloom's close, heartfelt sisterhood,as was used as a tool to repair Sweetie Belle and Rarity's wayward split.AJ and AB were just as important and fleshed out as Rarity and SB were!Also... LOL @ Rarity's parents! That was too perfect. Reminds me of some fanfics I read.
^ by this episode, I meant Sisterhooves Social.I'd say it dampens some of the fears of there being no AJ love.I'm OK with this!
I NEEDZ MORE PINKIE AND APPLEJACK!!!! AND FLUTTERSHY i-if Hasbro really wants to...
Rarity: "Hmm. I can either stay in Ponyville with my dirty, periodically insane and sometimes ungrateful friends. Or I can go to Canterlot, where my fashions will be appreciated, I can live among and as one of the elegant ponies and everything is clean. Enjoy your filth, bitches, I'm going to Canterlot!" I'm going on record as predicting this exact line appearing in the episode.Am I the only one who wants Spike, Derpy and Big Macintosh to have an episode?
Oh, and I forgot a second ago. That picture up there? AaaaaaaaaAAAWWW!
@Senjan If she did, then Equestria's fucked.
I love Rarity episodes but I feel like they should have been more balanced when deciding the chronology of the eps. It's silly to have back to back Rainbow Dash episodes or to have two Rarity-centric episodes so close together. I'm guessing the second half of the season will be AJ, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie-heavy.
We need a Fluttershy based episode, the poor dear has hardly even appeared in these last few episodes.
@Sethisto Firing sir! Sorry about the delay, but it takes a mailpony quite a while to fly up here.
First episode without twilight. i miss her.
Finally! A full episode based on my beloved Rarity <3
This one better have a song as good as Art of the Dress. No more musicless Rarity episodes.
You know, there really were ONLY 4 big musical numbers in season 1. Winter Wrap Up, Art of the Dress, Cutie Mark Crusaders, and At the Gala. @ were parody works inspired by Stephen Sondheim, and 2 were original creative works. Everything else was short tunes by individual ponies (mostly Pinkie). I figure, we have about 5 episodes to go before we need to worry about big musical numbers. It could happen at any time, but if things push past 5 more episodes, than statistically, we are shrinking the episode to episode gap for large musical numbers.I would expect a one off short musical number soon as well. Those do happen more frequently, so it is a little odd. In season 1, we had one pinkie song in episode 2, TWO in Episode 3, one song sung twice in episode 9, and we didn't get Winter Wrap Up till episode 11, a mere 2 episodes shy of HALF WAY through season 1. Episode 12 had a Pinkie song, and then the epic Art of the Dress appeared in episode 14. We don't get another till episode 18, with the CMC. We don't get another song till episode 21, where pinkie does her best old west song and dance. Episode 23 gives us the biggest source of diabetes ever, with So Many Wonders. Pinkie shines with a song for a moment before her brightness goes out in episode 25, and then the season finishes off with the legendarily awesome At the Gala.4 large songs.4 medium songs.6 short songs.14 songs total.We should start to see short to medium length songs by individuals soon. I'd worry more if we didn't get those first. If season one was any indication, we can go nearly half way through before seeing a large, epic song, though they are welcome to throw one out at any time please! :)a year ago, I would have teased my mother at watching anything musical.Here I am now, figuring out the distribution of musical numbers over a season of a little girls TV show about pastel ponies and sparkly magic.THIS IS THE MOST MANLY THING I'VE DONE TODAY!!!
Does anyone know if they're going to have Luna in anymore episode this season?
Well... someponies lend themselves to episode-centric status than others. Both Applejack and Fluttershy are too mild-mannered to have individual problems worth a whole episode. I liked Applebucking and Dragonshy, but they aren't up to this season's standard. Both characters do much better with a co-star or secondary role: Sisterhooves Social and Stare Master are good examples.I like having more focus on Rarity and Rainbow Dash. That's not because I'm particuarly charmed by these ponies; for me they're the bottom two of the Mane 6. But they've often gotten comic-relief parts when they could support much more. Developing these characters is an opportunity for the series to get even better. Although Sisterhooves Social was primarily about Sweetie Belle, I thought it was a good start along these lines.

@richfilesWow... psychic moment I guess...Considering the big fuss over the music leak...November 6, 2011 12:05 AMDo THE MANLIEST THING I'D DONE ALL DAY by posting my analysis on season 1's music and make my estimations that we should be seeing music very soon in season 2.Less than 7 hours later...November 6, 2011 7:09 AMVeronica said...

@FridgesrantsYou can have your god, we've got two of our own and they are A-OK :) Love and tolerance to you!
@Fridgesrants Hate to break it to you, but Kanye West isn't God.
Am I the only brony who wants more Pinkie Pie focused episodes? :(
I like Rarity, but I want a Scootaloo episode. D:
@richfilesI think these recent episodes are the first time were I've finished an episode and thought "Needs more singing". I almost always hate songs in TV shows, but every song so far has worked perfectly. Props to Ingram for that.Now, where are those songs for S2? We got 5 episodes in already and no in-episode songs. :(
I'm hoping they do a BG charcter episode at some point.As I'm sure that interesting things don't jsut happen to the mane 6
@EonMasterDiscord totally should have had a song. He had the voice and the attitude for it.
@SgtGarandNah, Rarity will write the letter, the others can do that now, remember?
@WhitFoxPinkie Pie is in the same boat or even more so; barring a few moments she's purely comic relief and those few moments really only hint that there's some depth, they're not explored nearly as much for the sake of comedy and it's up to fanon to attempt to fill in the blanks. None of the other five require such drastic measures.I fear for Pinkie Pie as a character and not a flanderized caricature to just deliver the jokes in the show, especially when 9 episodes down the line (over 1/3 of the season) and she still won't have developed any further as a character than in Party of One - let's be honest, the synopses for 6-9 would shoehorn her in at best.I'd not be surprised if people are saying Luna has more depth than Pinkie as dire as that sounds.
the hub said it would be about apple bloom getting her cutie mark then getting a second then a third and she gets like dozens of cutie marks
@dinosour132 This Saturday on an all-new My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Apple Bloom finally gets her Cutie Mark! But joy turns to panic as she gets a second, then a third, then a dozen cutie marks. this is what it said on their facebook page
Well she won't leave. It will cause a marketing problem or a voice actoe just got done with it@Servicerevolver
She is going to pick friends
