S5 E11: When in Rome by Esuka
S5 E11: When in Rome
Alternate Title: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Man, this season has been very up and down for me. This episode increased the scope of the world (which is usually a lot of fun) had a plethora of great moments, and dove into one of our favorite characters. We've explored her reaction to failing at a party, but we've never explored how far she's willing to go to make sure that doesn't happen. Also, the party cave is pretty sweet. It really was an excellent episode with some great cameos and great execution. While I wouldn't call it a bad thing, was it me, or did declarations of war seem a little heavy for this show? "We did not enjoy our time in your town, this means war!" Woah dude, chill your horns. Still, their overreaction to everything was part of what made the episode so fun. I was clutching my sides during the intro sequence when they went ham on the castle.

Like I said, this season has been very up and down for me thus far. But this was definitely an up.

Daughter of the Sun by Esuka

So for the fourth year, I thought I would try something different. With this past year being very much about building my foundational skills and improving my humans, I wanted to try applying that knowledge to our biannual solstice work. As always, it will be fun to see how things change by the winter solstice in six months.

It's been four years since I got into this crazy show. It's something I like to do, to take moments like these to judge how far my work has come in the past year, and how far I've come in that time as well. Is where I am better than where I was, and where do I want to be? I hope you enjoy this day, our longest day, and have some fun in the sun.

S5 E10: Do Not Disturb by Esuka
S5 E10: Do Not Disturb
And then Spike was grounded until season 6. Seriously, this guy seems to do the same things repeatedly, either getting in over his head or too big for his britches (or both), and causes a catastrophe every time. It gets kind of old. Don't get me wrong, there were some great, funny moments, and some wonderful reaction shots. It was great seeing Cadance and Fancy Pants again. I wouldn't even call this episode objectively weak, really. It was just too... similar. That said, the Rube Goldberg machine that led to the hall getting flooded was both unbelievable and entertaining, so... I don't know, this episode gets a pass, I guess. I just want Spike to do something right for once. Give us a sign that he's maturing.

S5 E9: Tuesday by Esuka
S5 E9: Tuesday
My only complaint about this episode was that, by five minutes in, I knew it was going to be hard to properly capture it in a single image. It was so all over the place, there were so many call backs and cameos. How does one sum up such an ensemble cacophony of fun? More than anything, I was excited for the characters that finally got speaking roles and some screentime. It was great to have them be characters, recognized as a part of the world that we've come to love. Does that mean it was... canon? I guess? It was all so goofy and fun, I feel like you can take it or you can leave it. I think the personalities and the performances, however, were all fantastic.

I heard there was a bunch of back and forth about pandering, with the promos coming out over the past two weeks. I loved this episode. I watched it twice in a row, and I want to watch it again. Pure, simple fun.

S5 E8: Golden Solutions by Esuka
S5 E8: Golden Solutions
This episode was the kind of thing I had been hoping for since the map first appeared: adventures to new places and new problems. Don't get me wrong, I love me some slice of life, but the lore in this episode was fantastic. All the stuff about the griffons, showing how they were and how they are, was awesome to finally get. It even made me not mind Gilda's return. It was a way to show the big history and cultural presence on a personal level. That she was initially timid at flight school, a small kid in a strange place with no idea how to get along with people, is a very different face of a thus far antagonistic character.

Deep lore, good humor, good character dynamics, and just a hint of self awareness? This episode easily slips into my top 3 for the season.

Hey there, everyone,

A while back, I announced 'The Line,' a fanfiction I would be posting on a weekly basis. Well, it has now completed publication, and can be read from start to finish over on Fimfiction.net. I would love for you to give it a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers.
