* RecycledScript: A possible summary for the episode: The older sibling of a Cutie Mark Crusader feels disconnected from the Crusader herself. That older sibling does something outlandish in a desperate bid to recapture their little sister's affection, only for it to backfire and make things worse. Finally, a heart to heart talk between the pair reveals deeper feelings, and a new, healthier relationship is formed. Is this describing "Forever Filly" or "Brotherhooves Social?" There's even the brief element of both Big Mac and Rarity using old toys to connect with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, respectively.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Sweetie Belle. Fans appreciate the episode's moral, and found it was totally understandable where Sweetie was coming from. However, Sweetie lost all favor with some fans who thought she unfairly lashed out at her sister for not "understanding" her, citing that Sweetie Belle did absolutely ''nothing'' to communicate and was banking on Rarity to just read her mind. Some viewed this as a moment that really dragged down the episode as a result. This also caused some to actually start siding with Rarity, as once again, she is forced to appease her little sister's behavior, which some come to view as exceptionally entitled. Some also contend that Sweetie Belle is JustAKid, and has no grasp of responsibility, while the other side contends that being a child makes it all the more important for her to learn a lesson.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Don't talk things over with your loved ones. They have mind reading powers, and if they don't do what you want, lash out at them, because they're wrong for not understanding you.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In this episode, Rarity insists on treating Sweetie Belle like a baby, ignoring how much she's grown and changed over the years, and eventually realizes that even though she's different, the two can still have a close relationship. This sounds remarkably like the writers' statement on ''Friendship is Magic'' itself. The show began with much lighter fare, only to [[GrowingTheBeard become more serious]] as time went by, exploring far more mature themes than the first season. Consider: the Season One finale was the Mane Six attending the Grand Galloping Gala. The Season Six finale was a quartet of [[HeelFaceTurn reformed villains]] (some of whom [[ReformedButNotTamed are still wavering on the good/bad scale]]) working together to defeat Queen Chrysalis--whose connection with the Changelings was a metaphor for the dangers of narcissistic personality disorder (absorbing and demanding love rather than willingly sharing it), with the original main characters barely appearing at all. It's even reflected in the Sweetie Belle-centric episodes across the seasons: in "Sisterhooves Social," her ideas for spending time with Rarity including drawing pictures, singing songs, and playing leap-frog. By now, she's moved on from that, and it's ''Rarity'' who thinks she still wants to do babyish activities.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Sweetie Belle growing up could have been it's own unique story if it was solely focused on her and may have had the chance to give her a bit more depth. For instance, she could figure out on her own that she's becoming too old for her formerly favourite things to do and eventually switch to new stuff, learning that there is nothing wrong with growing up and trying different things.
