** Roland_Dhalgren: How can we have a DMOS section for Season 6 without giving special mention to ''The Cart Before the Ponies'', which is honestly kind of amazing in a few ways. It's amazing how AJ, Dash, and Rarity all take turns with not only the JerkAssBall but also the ConflictBall, giving the CMC more hell than they ever believably would. AJ might've gotten the worst of this, practically threatening to disown poor Apple Bloom over a friggin' cart race, being so [[{{Flanderization}} fixated on tradition]] that she outright ''kicks off Apple Bloom's contributions.'' You know things are bad when, of the three, [[JerkJock Dash]] comes off as the most likable. And that's not even getting to the race itself, whoo boy. First of all, Cheerilee isn't known for being especially attentive, but she gets hit pretty hard with the IdiotBall in this episode. Rarity's cart design should by all rights get her disqualified, but Cheerilee ignores it. The adults drive the carts, even though they shouldn't be, but Cheerilee gives that a pass as well. And whoever designed this race track deserves a golden dunce cap. And as if to pour some salt on the wound, the adults in question [[EasilyForgiven get off pretty easily]] in the end. Terrible, ''terrible'' episode, but so much so that I find it [[BileFascination morbidly fascinating]]. Whether ''28 Pranks Later'' is worse or not certainly makes for interesting debate material, and the above troper has mos def made a compelling case for it being the worst episode of Season 6 and not ''Carts'', but this one aired first and sticks out in my mind as even more insultingly bad.

Cdv4 Warning, contravercial opinion coming up! oh boy, this one is absolute garbage. I have never seen a full episode of this show (without someone practically strapping me to a chair and making me watch this show) but I have heard of this episode and how it is downright offensive (warning, massive rant incoming!) all of this is because of 12 words; "this all could've been avoided if you had just talked to me". In the context of this plot, this means that any and all bullying situations end instantly if you talk to an adult. Question writers, did you ever think of the times when adults did not do anything to help out the situation, or worse, made the situation worse by not believing you, or being on the bully's side. Sometimes letting an adult know about bullying can actually sometimes make things worse for you if you don't do anything except trying to let adults handle this situation. I honestly can't give this show too much hate for this though, some may say, and that no show has ever done bullying perfectly right, But this is the worst examples of bullying as a topic in a show I've ever seen. For me, this is one topic that should not be touched by most shows, unless they can do other heavy topics well. Seeing this page, I don't think this show was quite ready to pull this off. The worst part for me though is how it treats standing up to a bully makes you a bully. This is so not true that it is absolutely insane to the point that I question is the writers have ever been in or seen a real bullying situation. In some cases, yes, it does make things worse, but showing a bully that you are not afraid of them is a brave thing to do. Doing this can make some bullies see that you aren't worth the effort to bully and move on to (as hard as it is for me to say this) another victim. Now for the big question that you all may be wondering; what is the perfect solution to ending bullying? I personally think that there is no two bullying situations that are alike, and no 2 answers are perfect either. While I do agree that letting an adult know about the bullying situation can be an important step, it is not the perfect answer for any situation. If the writers got into a bullying situation, they must have just told an adult and everything was perfect for them. Spoiler alert writers, that is not how every bullying situation will end! Thanks for sitting through this rant and f-ck that line.

** Tropers/SenorCornholio: I'm changing my entry from "The Crystalling" to this because, though I did enjoy both two-parters overall, they each had their things that bugged me (no pun intended). In the case of "To Where And Back Again", it's the amount of missed potential throughout. I did like seeing Starlight interact with Trixie, Discord getting some time to shine, and Thorax's character arc coming full circle (in fact I'm one of few who like the reformed Changeling designs), but there were way too many things left unchecked throughout. I could go on about how there could have been far more characters to lead a raid on the (admittedly cool) Changeling hive, and the Changelings' reformation in general is a source of discontent for a few people (personally I would have preferred if Chrysalis didn't become the overall main antagonist for the next season). My biggest problem, however, has to be thus: [[TheWorfEffect how did the Changelings capture the Mane 6, the princesses, and Shining Armor?]] That would have been amazing to see, but it all happens offscreen; we could have seen how formidable the Changelings really are for the first time since the season 2 finale, presenting them as a crafty, threatening species capable of silently usurping ponies you love, and yet we don't get that. At all. It's just an excuse for Starlight to have to be the hero (which, I like Starlight, but even I found this a bit farfetched). The worst of it is, after the season premiere put so much focus on Flurry Heart and how powerful she is, [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter she gets captured just as easily as her parents and doesn't even play a major role in the episode]]. I get that she's a newborn foal, but her face in the [[AvengersAssemble huge confrontation]] at the end means she was clearly not happy with Chrysalis, so the Changelings probably took her by force. Bottom line: for such an interesting part of the plot, you'd think the writers would go into a little bit more detail than they did. At the end of the whole ordeal, [[SequelHook we're left with far more questions than answers]] and it really annoys me since we may never get a true answer to this question as long as this show is alive. Hopefully, we don't get situations like this in the next seasons. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh yeah, and why did Tinypop air this finale before Discovery Family?]]

** Tropers/MagnetMissile: I have to say for the first film, they built up Sunset Shimmer as a powerful villain. Oh, guess what happens after she goes OneWingedAngel on the protagonists? She's defeated in possibly one of the most anticlimactic fights. To go from a powerful villain to being defeated in seconds just seems like a slap in the face. Yeah, she's reformed in the second film but that doesn't change the fact she was an AntiClimaxBoss in the first movie.

** {{@/Psyga315}}: With the wounds of ACW mended, it feels sensible to shift to a new DMOS. No, it's not how Celestia and the others were captured to make Starlight look good; [[AuthorsSavingThrow they actually introduced her and fleshed her out a bit]] unlike what they did with [[AssPull Shining Armor and Cadance]]. The problem here is that the heroes simply let Chrysalis go. You're telling me that you imprison (or even kill) villains who enslave Equestria under different means ranging from eternal night/chaos to draining Equestria of all its magic, sometimes twice, and yet for the villain who caused terrorist attacks and multiple kidnappings (and if we're accounting comics as canon, the genocide of an entire nation), you not only offer a hoof of friendship (granted, the one who offered said friendship was no saint herself) but when she obviously didn't go for it, just let her go despite knowing full well that she'll be back? There's TurnTheOtherCheek and then there's [[TheFarmerAndTheViper letting a known terrorist linger around]]. There's an old saying: [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 Fool me once]], [[YouMonster shame on you]].
