- Derpy's reaction to finding out Pokey Pierce had used her as a cheap consolation prize after failing to blackmail Rainbow Dash into sex with him.
- Her reaction to Firefly having to deny her the talk she obviously needs is heartstring-tugging as well.
- Firefly's reaction to Medley casually bringing up the possibility that she and Dash will break up due to having to have a long distance relationship.
- Billy is threatening to destroy everything the JV team has worked for just because he wants to bring Dash down. And on a more personal note, if he did this, it would destroy any chance Firefly has of getting into her chosen university.
- The fact that Rainbow Dash's relationships with Firefly and Gilda are obviously Doomed by Canon, unless of course this is an Alternate Universe:
- Firefly is nowhere to be seen in the present day. Legal reasons out-of-universe not withstanding, Dash and Firefly hooking up begs the question of how the former ends up single, and the latter MIA entirely, by the time Twilight Sparkle moves to Ponyville.
- Rainbow and Gilda are fated to have a falling-out after a brief but troubled reunion. Though they do make up later on.
- Dash's future is set to be ruined by Billy who thinks nothing of using his connections to screw over everyone on the JV team just because he thinks Dash is a stuck up brat (Never mind that he's a Bastard Boyfriend to Gilda, bullies anyone who remotely could qualify as beneath him and lords his uncle's position to get whatever he wants while Dash at most has a big mouth but can generally back up her bragging.)
