Because Applejack saved his life, Spike insists on helping Applejack around Sweet Apple Acres. Applejack's okay with letting him help for the day--though being a farmhand isn't Spike's strong point, which he quickly proves by clumsily causing more trouble than good. Still, Spike sticks around the farm to fulfill his "Dragon Code" in which dragons must prove their nobility by serving their savior to the end of their days. Spike is reminded that he's still Twilight's assistant, but Twilight's so caught up in her studies that she absentmindedly gives Spike her blessing to stay with Applejack, meaning he's free to "help" the Apple family ''forever''!

** The timberwolves' bad breath the main things that tips Spike off to the Mane Six's act, as well as what indicates the arrival of the real deal.

* CombatPragmatist[=/=]DefensiveFeintTrap: Rather than facing the timberwolves in a direct fight, Applejack uses the terrain to her advantage by hitting them with whatever she can put her hooves on. Chasing after her can be much more dangerous than facing her one-on-one.

* {{Flanderization}}: We previously saw that Spike likes working and can be sometimes clumsy, but one may argue that these aspects grew out of proportion in this episode.
* FailedASpotCheck: When Spike scratched Applejack's back, it was clear that Applejack enjoyed it. Due to Spike's [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny scattershot approach]] at trying to find ways to help Applejack, they both failed to realize that this could have been a perfectly reasonable - if creepy - way for him to serve her.

* WoundedGazelleWarcry: Applejack plays the role of the DamselInDistress in a rouse to try to release Spike of his LifeDebt. As Rarity {{Lampshaded}}, her cries of distress [[BadBadActing need serious work]]... at least until she actually gets a hoof stuck when real timberwolves are attacking.

** DistressedDude: The main pivot of the plot is Spike acting as one when the timberwolves first appear at the start of the episode.

** Applejack's acting is so bad that Rarity [[LargeHam herself]] tries to give her acting lessons. She runs out of time so Applejack has to perform in her basic manner.
