* After Sludge departs, Smolder comforts Spike, placing a hand on his shoulder in a supportive way.

to:

* After Not for the first time -- and not the last one for sure -- Smolder proves that there is a kind heart beneath her rough exterior. When she notices how battered Spike is, she is immediately concerned and wants to know what happened to him. And when she gets a hint that Sludge is manipulating his "son" and treating him like his personal slave, she decides to help Spike and expose his "father's" lies. It was established throughout the series that concern with well-being of others is not in dragons' nature, but apparently, Smolder is just better than that. On top of all it, after Sludge departs, Smolder comforts Spike, placing a hand on his shoulder in a supportive way.


* Even considering her true nature, Cozy Glow still has fun spending time with the Crusaders, and helps a lot of ponies with their assistance. A particular moment is when she goes all-out to save Pipsqueak's kite, even flying headfirst into a bush to bring it back safely.
** Cozy Glow celebrating with the Crusaders when she gets an A on her homework. They're really happy for her, and tell her that they've been having so much fun helping her, that they don't feel as bad about not getting into the school. Say what you will about her, but she still helped them out of their depression.

** When everypony is yelling at each other, Twilight suddenly shouts for them to be quiet then says she doesn't'care who's right or wrong, or whether they appreciate her work: she just wants them all to stop fighting.

Added DiffLines:

** Seeing Fluttershy upset after getting caught in an argument between Pinkie and the real Twilight may be tearjerking, but it's good to see her try to calm her friends down.

Added DiffLines:

* Twilight's actions throughout the episode count as one big [=CMoH=]. From the beginning to the end, she is nothing but caring and supportive towards Spike -- even after he literally breaks her heart with his insensitive remark about "real parent". When they meet again in the final scene, one would expect Twilight to be at least a tiny bit resentful towards him. But what does she do instead? Her main concern is still his well-being, not her own hurt feelings. When she learns that Sludge isn't Spike's father and had been lying to him all that time, she is genuinely sorry and comes closer to comfort him. Not only that, but she expresses her understanding if Spike still would like to find his biological parents.


* In a mate sense, after the mixed opinions and controversy after [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Twilight got her wings]], it's nice to see the generally positive reception of Spike getting his.

** When Twilight learns from the other leaders that how the students left because they didn't want to end their friendship (a friendship they had forged at Twilight's School before it was closed down), it reignites her faith in her cause. Sure [[CrowningMomentOfFunny it's not the right time or place to say so]], but it may be what further convinces Twilight that she ''doesn't'' need to go "by the book" to make a good school.

** Looking deeper into the issue, this is more than just [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome a bunch of leaders who got fed up with Neighsay's bigotry]]. It was because, contrary to the chancellor's claims that the creature students are "dangerous", they're ''just children''. And the leaders recognize they didn't ''mean'' any harm.

Added DiffLines:

* Despite that Scootaloo was no longer her fan, Rainbow Dash still [[BigDamnHeroes came to her rescue]] and saved her from a potentially dangerous stunt. Scootaloo is in turn very grateful.
** Fridge-Heartwarming: True to the episode's theme about being someone worth looking up to, the rescue is potentially what reminds Scootaloo of ''why'' she looked up to Rainbow Dash in the first place: because she's [[UndyingLoyalty loyal]].


* When the Young Six are trapped in the magic-draining orb, one student notes that they [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed]] themselves to try and help Gallus (in keeping with Rainbow's loyalty classes), and suggests that they try to save them. When Cozy [[NoSympathy dismisses]] the suggestion (claiming they "brought it on themselves"), another student points out that this goes against their generosity and kindness lessons. The students may have been tricked by Cozy Glow into thinking the Young Six were the villains, but they had learned enough from their classes to at least want to [[SaveTheVillain save them]].

* During his brief time among the Hippogriff navy, Rockhoof finds common ground with General Seaspray, who [[CommonalityConnection sympathizes]] with Rockhoof's feelings that the world has moved on without him. Even when Rockhoof accidentally causes the ship, Seaspray doesn't get angry at him, simply telling him ItHasBeenAnHonor.

** Fridge Heartwarming: this helps us reaize that all of the mane ponies has achieved their lifetime goals (Rainbow Dash is a Wonderbolt, Rarity's business is expanding, Fluttershy has a safe place for her animal friends and Twilight became a respected scholar). Meanwhile, Pinkie Pie and Applejack are shown teaching at the school. Then you realize those two never had a big goal to pursue; they are already satisfied with their lives as they are.

* At the beginning of the episode, Rainbow has a casual conversation with several of the Wonderbolts, showing she has been with them long enough to really make friends with them. Also, the way Soarin casually leaves a foreleg around her during this shows how close the two of them are..
