Well yeah this was certainly a good episode in my book. Finally seeing more CMC maturity. I have no idea why the fandom is giving this one a harder time than the breezies episode. I like this episode much better than last weeks. Sure it had several just "omg can we move on" moments but it was interesting nonetheless.
I actually liked how this episode opened up. I think from the beginning all the way through....oh I'd say when Applejack returns to check on AB it was good. I see the fandom split on this but I'm on the side that kind of liked it.
Now it seems many are in agreement that the section of the episode that was extremely flat and boring was from when AJ was harassing AB till the part where Applebloom finally leaves with the pie cart.
I can agree cause it was kind of overkill but man....the rest of the episode after that was awesome.
I really like howdark and eerie th episode got. The last 10 mins of the episode saved it from being a train wreck.
I love the fact they threw in chimera....and a badass chimera. The setting and everything with Applebloom....it was really cool to see and I think this you can say was AB's first true breakout episode since Family Appreciation Day. You really get to see how much AB is growing up and trying to take charge now.
Overall was it a good episode yes....great....no. But still it was really cool. Like I said that 6-7 min section in the middle of the episode was the annoying part. Still it was a new writer so....can't be too harsh.
