Watched the new episode. I spent the entire night sleeping on the couch with an alarm going every half an hour so I'd be able to get up in time. Didn't even know about the leak until a few hours ago!

I liked it. As per course, Pinkie was hilarious, although other than that not much stood out to me. Don't get me wrong, it sure as hell wasn't bad, but I don't think this one will be jumping to my mind when I think of my favorites. Not bad, not great, but neutral, while leaning a bit towards the great side.

I can't say I liked it. I didn't hate it, but I didn't really love it.

This is mostly because I found Dash to be annoying in this episode. Before she wasn't that bad IMO, but in this episode her unlikeability was amplified, not to mention the dash clone who was worse.

She just came off as extremely arrogant. I understand the try-hard, competitive, striving for victory, driven to be the best, and almost masculine part of her character and I like it, but in this episode I either didn't see any of that, or it was eclipsed by how arrogant she was.

overall, I am neutral on this one. I get what the writers where trying to do, but I think it could of been done better.

[SPOILER ALERT]
.
.

I would say that this is by far Rainbow Dash's best episode, hoof down. I really appreciated how this episode introduced a candidate who matched Rainbow in skill, but didn't pit them against each other. Instead they were put together and through Lightning Dust, we were shown a character of extreme recklessness which we could compare to Rainbow.
I loved the moral of this episode too, it's a good lesson to learn that there is such a thing as wanting something too much, and as a wise fictional character once said, "sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams." After the near-tragedy, Rainbow Dash learned this immediately and did the right thing by turning in her wingman badge. That scene was pretty intense.

However, since Rainbow ended up staying in the Academy after being given props by Spitfire, I wonder how this'll affect her presence in future episodes. Hmmm...

Speaking of Spitfire, I enjoyed her prominent role in this episode :3
.

[/SPOILER]

So yeah, I liked it.... A LOT. I'd even say that this is now of my favorites because it's actually a really heavy episode compared to any other non-pilot/finale episode that came before it. While Rainbow was quite arrogant/annoying, I think it was played right and the character development far outweighs that.

I really enjoyed the new episode. Great stuff from beginning to end.

I haven't been able to spot Derpy at all this season... Are they still using her as an easter egg?

She's in the comic book and as far as I know, they are still making toys of her and calling her "Derpy". I think that after the derpocalyspe, they would rather avoid direct exposure of her in the show.

However, I do think she will return sometime, hopefully this season.

It would be great to see Derpy front and center again some time in the future.

It really would! It's always great to know that the production thinks about us and Derpy :)

Derpy is still in the theme song I think. Don't know if that counts though.

It is about time. I really do hope we get to here her with her very own song. It had better be longer than a minute.

Possibly, given her latest tweet.

For all we know it could be Big Macintosh, Applebloom, or Granny Smith who sings instead.

When it comes to the songs, I am aloof. It's not that I don't like them--some I find are actually quite catchy--it's just that I don't care.

Not to sound rude or anything.

I would bring Twilight, Pinkie, and Fluttershy, given their supplies. I honestly wish I could bring Vinyl as well, but music is not a priority for survival.

For me I would have to go with Applejack, Fluttershy, and Twilight.

Applejack
For one, Applejack is most reliable pone. Her equipment means that with careful planning our group will have an infinite food source so long as it's protected from bandits and mutants - also Applejack is strongpone and can crush skulls with ease. She will be able to carry more weight and will have greater resilience against fatigue and injury than any other pony. Being the most mentally stable pony, she is the least likely member to snap under pressure. She is also a terrible liar, something I would bet my life on. Her charisma and ability to round up critters will allow her to take an effective commanding position over the future Rabbit Army - to be discussed below. Her expertise and knowledge of apples and apple accessories will allow us to maximize our utility over this natural resource. Applejack also has the most huggable tail. Hugging her tail will boost my morale.

Fluttershy
Fluttershy's ability as a pegasus to manipulate weather will allow us to quickly cultivate apple orchards, however her greatest advantage comes from her equipment. Fluttershy's rabbits are small, fast, agile, possess a keen sense of hearing, and -most importantly- are able to communicate through Fluttershy. This makes the dozen rabbits extremely useful for reconnaissance, scavenging, and early detection as Fluttershy acting as our translator. Sustained by the apples, courtesy of AJ, they can multiply and grow into a formidable army of trained and loyal killer rabbit warriors led by Cult Leader Fluttershy, Applejack, Twilight, and myself. The Bear will be a significant asset to the group as well, making sure our precious fledgling resources and rabbit squad are protected from tougher hostile forces. Bear's omnivorous diet will allow him to nourish himself with apples, but disobedient and traitorous rabbits may be fed to him as well. His keen senses, immense strength, and survival instincts will see our group through the bleakest of situations. His name is Piccolo.

Twilight Sparkle
Twilight's aptitude for magic makes her invaluable to the group, as she can easily create makeshift fortresses with levitation spells, quickly formulate tactics and strategies, and basically being a walking encyclopedia. Being highly intelligent, Twilight also has an impeccable knack for organization which will play an essential role in consolidating the group as well as the Rabbit Army - she'll be the mastermind behind rank structure, logistics, and formulating missions. On the most intense and crucial assignments, Twilight will be able to teleport squads of elite rabbit operatives discretely into territories of interest to gather intelligence or to secure them. Basically she's the brain and specialist of the group. Nuff said.

Daring Doo definitely. She seems like she would be an expert survivalist.

I think I'll stick to waiting for the new episode to see such things. It is still nice to see legitimate sources plugging FiM though.

So I just finished watching this weeks episode, and while it's not my favorite of this season despite being an Applejack episode, it still put a really big smile on my face! I'll just wait until it looks like everyone else has seen the episode.

Just finished watching the new episode. Looks like the wish of Applejack singing her own song came true. It did indeed put a big smile on my face. Really solid and enjoyable episode as well. While I wouldn't call it the best of the lot, it holds up to the high standard the show sets for itself.
