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.
