** Tropers/{{MsCC93}}: I removed my other entry because I sounded ridiculous. It's been months since I've watched this show, but this episode has got to be one of the worst I have ever seen. Rainbow Dash is actually one of my favorite characters of the show, despite her flaws. What bothered me about it was the constant taunting she received in the hands of the other Wonderbolts. These are grown adults acting like childish bullies. It was horrible (and cringe-worthy) watching Rainbow Dash look so hurt after the teasing she endured (even though Dash should have swallowed her pride and admitted that Rainbow "Crash" was a traumatic nickname for her). This episode missed an opportunity to show that hazing is wrong, and embraced the idea of hazing instead. So that just gives me the impression that the writers discourage bullying, but don't have a problem with hazing, which is completely wrong since they are both very similar.

Finally, Applejack says that fashion is ridiculous. But this wasn't the moment that pissed me off. This prompts Rarity to take Applejack to a plot device known as Strawberry Surprise or something or another, who says that she doesn't like apples and prefers strawberries instead. For some reason, this posses Applejack off something fierce, and Rarity, very condescending, says, "Doesn't feel good, does it?" Apples realizes her mistake and everything works out in the end.\\

** Tropers/{{Ferigeras}}: Now don't get me wrong, as a whole I really liked this finale. I liked the timelines that were showcased (even if they were blatant and annoying FanficFuel), all the cameos of older villains (Although I would have really loved to see more of Tirek) and I kinda liked the ending. But it has one critical moment I really despise, and something that in retrospect makes some of the earlier episodes hard to watch. What I consider to be this show's [[DethroningMomentOfSuck Dethroning Moment]] is how Rainbow Dash failing to perform her first Sonic Rainboom was this critical to this plot, and what would have happened to Equestria as an effect. Now I do like the fact that they touched on an early episode the way they did, but what really bothered me was the fact that it's this SINGLE event that the ''entirety of Equestria'' somehow depended on... I just can't get behind that. Now the finale did attempt to show how [[AnAesop even the most minor actions can have the biggest changes]], but this was simply exaggerating it in the worst way possible. I mean sure, back in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" they did show how this event linked the Mane 6 together, but for that friendship to mean everything for the fate of Equestria as a whole is almost incomprehensible. Like seriously, according to this finale, if the Manes 6 weren't... the Mane 6, all those villains we have seen would have succeeded and all of Equestria would have been devastated in one way or another, which is [[FridgeHorror almost depressing if you actually really thought about it]]. Not to mention how it basically implies that the Mane 6 are the ''only'' things capable of keeping Equestria peaceful. If that was the case, how the hell did Equestria even last this long under such circumstances?

If that was the case, how the hell did Equestria even last this long under such circumstances?

** Colin: This is the episode is complete wrong of this, while that Applejack is doing some bucking at a hundred apple trees all of her own which her big brother Big Mac said was "But still only ''one'' pony, and one pony plus ''hundreds'' of apple trees just doesn't add up" what he meant was that she cannot work alone if her needed her help but Applejack is refused for this. Few minutes later, Twilight Sparkle is going and see Applejack where she doesn't feel good due to lack of sleeping which Twilight can use her help but AJ is said no for this that she is going to do the help of Rainbow Dash for flight lessons, Pinkie Pie making cupcakes and Fluttershy to take care for the baby bunnys but it was been result was; AJ is to dizzy and very hard to hear what they were saying as it make much worse and worse like making [[WhatTheHellHero Rainbow Dash getting injured, mess the ingredients for cupcakes and scared the baby bunny making chaos at Ponyville]]. When Twilight friends is told her that Applejack wasn't right about this so Twilight need help for Applejack but she ''still'' refused for her option which i have been realize that she is dishonest to her friends.

** @/{{Capsarc}}: What really bugged me about this episode was the fact that Nightmare Night even existed. AlternateCharacterInterpretation aside, Celestia has always been a benevolent, caring ruler, almost to the point of being [[CrystalDragonJesus Crystal Alicorn Jesus]]. The first thing she does when Luna is cured is embrace her, welcome her back to the family and put on a big celebration for her. Then we find out that there's been a holiday that does nothing but turn her sister into a boogeyman who eats children, and for a thousand years Celestia does nothing to try and improve her sister's reputation or preserve her good name. [[WhatTheHellHero What the hell, Celestia?]] Sure, you could say that she didn't want to create a revisionist history but there's a difference between a fair treatment of a bad person and outright demonification.

This turns out to be a problem because Windy and Bow do nothing but constantly disrupt the Wonderbolts while they're trying to practice.

As far as I'm concerned, Rainbow Dash being frustrated with them after the show and blowing up at them was entirely justified. Sure, she may have gone too far with her tone, but her words were entirely true. Praising her for folding a towel? Setting off fireworks during a stunt show, with no regard to the safety of the Wonderbolts themselves? Calling them "too much" is an {{understatement}}. But instead of the show treating this as a turning point for Bow and Windy to learn a lesson in the difference between support and blind praise, the episode paints ''Rainbow Dash'' as being in the wrong, and they even have Scootaloo giving her a WhatTheHellHero speech! I'm sorry, [[FlatWhat what?]]\\

Considering this show has tackled more mature morals, despite the target audience, before (I mean speaking of season 7 alone, the moral of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E6ForeverFilly Forever Filly]]" is one of the more mature morals they've done on the show), this episode oversimplifying the issue by slapping Rainbow Dash with all the blame and absolving Windy Whistles and Bow Hothoof of any responsibility for their behavior is nothing short of frustrating.\\

** GermanGuy95: Applejack really got on my nerves in Tropers/ILikeRobots: As much as I like this episode, which actually really irritated me considering show, and despite the fact that Applejack is my favorite character out we've had subpar or even bad episodes in the past, this was the first episode of the Mane Six. I used to think series that [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E11ApplejacksDayOff Applejack's Day Off]] as I had trouble finishing the worst that first watch through. First off, it could get. Boy, opens with an OverlyLongGag of Scootaloo screeching in an [[MostAnnoyingSound obnoxiously high pitch]], which is never a good way to get your audience invested. I stuck around to see Rainbow Dash's parents, and was I wrong!\\severely disappointed.\\



The basic premise runs like this: Rarity wants Applejack to be a judge in an upcoming fashion show. Everypony, including Applejack herself, is surprised by this decision. Applejack herself says that she knows next to nothing about fashion. What's Rarity's reason for asking Applejack to be a judge? She says that it's Applejack's honesty and practicality that make her an ideal judge. After musing over it a bit, Applejack decides to take Rarity up on her offer.\\

to:

The basic premise runs Being proud of your daughter's accomplishments is one thing, but the borderline worship that Bow Hothoof and Windy Whistles are doing (they've turned their house into a ''Rainbow Dash shrine'', for one thing) falls straight into creepy territory, and reads more like this: Rarity wants Applejack something out of a horror fan fiction, making Scootaloo's blind early seasons HeroWorship look positively ''tame.'' Not to be mention, they fall quickly into obnoxious territory themselves, with their own obnoxiously loud {{squee}}ing over Rainbow Dash. Coming from a judge in an upcoming fashion show. Everypony, including Applejack herself, is surprised by this decision. Applejack herself says child like Scootaloo, understandable if somewhat annoying. From two grown ponies? Ridiculous and obnoxious. Not to mention, it makes Bow and Windy come off as one-note {{Flat Character}}s, especially given that she knows next to nothing about fashion. What's Rarity's reason for asking Applejack to be other one-episode ponies have gotten a judge? She says that it's Applejack's honesty and practicality that make her an ideal judge. After musing over it a bit, Applejack decides to take Rarity up on her offer.\\similar amount of screen time while being far more developed. What interests do they ''have'' outside of Rainbow Dash? It's something of FridgeHorror: Do they have any lives outside of worshiping their daughter?\\



What does Applejack proceed to do, you may ask? She proceeds to constantly nitpick about every little thing. To be fair, she did have some good points, like the excessive amount of buttons on Inky Rose's outfit. But every other comment that she makes about an outfit just comes across as nitpicking to me. Didn't she say earlier that she knows next to nothing about fashion? If that's the case, then she should have kept her mouth shut and leave the critiquing to Rarity. You know, the pony who's been designing clothes and working in fashion ever since she was a little filly? But, no. If we did that, we wouldn't have an episode.\\

I'm sorry, [[FlatWhat what?]]\\



Finally, Applejack says that fashion is ridiculous. But this wasn't the moment that pissed me off. This prompts Rarity to take Applejack to a plot device known as Strawberry Surprise or something or another, who says that she doesn't like apples and prefers strawberries instead. For some reason, this posses Applejack off something fierce, and Rarity, very condescending, says, "Doesn't feel good, does it?" Apples realizes her mistake and everything works out in the end.\\

to:

Finally, Applejack says Sure, Scootaloo not understanding what Bow and Windy are doing is wrong makes sense, due to her apparent lack of parental interaction and her own excitement over Rainbow Dash. Sure, Rainbow Dash may have been disrespectful in her means, but the episode ''never'' acknowledges that fashion is ridiculous. But this wasn't Bow and Windy's obnoxious, overeager praise and worship isn't healthy, nor it it considerate of other people. And worse still, the moment that pissed me off. This prompts Rarity episode tries to take Applejack to a plot device known get the audience on the parents' side, by painting Bow and Windy as Strawberry Surprise or something or another, [[TheWoobie woobies]] who says that she doesn't like apples and prefers strawberries instead. For some reason, this posses Applejack off something fierce, and Rarity, very condescending, says, "Doesn't feel good, does it?" Apples realizes her mistake and everything works out in the end.\\have done nothing wrong, while Rainbow is portrayed as an ungrateful child!\\



The moment that pissed me off was the moment where Applejack takes one of the designers' hats that has a large amount of feathers on it and she proceeds to shake it, getting rid of all the feathers in the process. This pissed me off because that designer probably spent HOURS sewing each and every individual feather into that hat, and Applejack acts like she doesn't give a damn, dumping all of them on the floor like they're a piece of trash! Fuck you, Applejack! How would you like it if somebody did that to you, just took a barrel full of apples that you'd just got done bucking from a tree and dumped them all on the ground, forcing you to pick them up? I'm sure you'd be pissed too!\\

** Tropers/{{MsCC93}}: I agree 50% with Tempus22. In my opinion, I think Starlight had every single right to feel bitter and heartbroken over her lost friend (even though I don't agree with her actions), but the writers should have added more depth into her FreudianExcuse. It did make Starlight look petty when she confessed why she did the things she did.

We then get a montage of the parents constantly singing Rainbow Dash's praises, embarrassing and humiliating her in the process, not once thinking about how this must be making Dash feel or how it's disrupting the other Wonderbolts. It finally comes to a head when Dash yells at them to stop. Instead of beating her ass for this like they rightly should have (you know, disciplining her like any normal parent would do for this behavior), they instead congratulate her on yelling at them making and making them feel worthless. Are you serious!? If this was the real world, Rainbow Dash would have gotten her ass beaten!\\

** Tropers/{{Peridonyx}}: I mostly like this finale, except for one thing: Starlight suddenly being being some sort of magical demigoddess who can even give Twilight (both an Alicorn and the Element of Magic), Star Swirl (Celestia and Luna's established mentor in the books), etc., a run for their bits -- and with no real explanation other than just "she has so much potential". Even more glaring is her suddenly figuring out how to alter history multiple times, something even Discord admitted being unable to do even once in ''Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDWIssue24''. While her HeelFaceTurn is indeed a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, she's still the closest thing to a VillainSue in the series so far (unless the writers expand upon her backstory regarding her magic -- and not in some AssPull fashion, either).
