Ok, I've never done this before so, don't leave any rude comments and BE WARNED. SPOILERS ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN!
While I loved the episode and it has a good lesson, but it raises a few questions. Now, on to the Review! I'm happy to see a CMC episode, even if it's mostly with Apple Bloom. We see that babs has gotten her cutie mark, which is a pair of scissors with an apple for the handle (What's that all about?). Now we get to the big questions, "What's gonna happen when the CMC get their Cutie marks?" A good question, and it doesn't help that Scoots is saying bad things about apples, and aren't some apples sour? Like Green Apples?
Anywho, we get a nice conversation with A.J., and the sweetest moment that will make your heart melt, "A cutie mark won't change you, no matter what you get". That is too beautiful. Apple Bloom wakes up the next morning and heads down for breakfest, A.J. said that all she needed was a good night's sleep, when she notices something is different about her little sister. Apple Bloom has that "Do I have something on my face" look when A.J. point out that she got her Cutie mark. In all honesty I had no idea of what Apple bloom's cutie mark was, until I saw the pest pony guy. So she's gonna get rid of the bugs in Sweet Apple Acers, sound hard, I mean how much land does the Apple family even have?
So the Pest Pony shows her the ropes, including introducing us to a new insect, "Twittermites"! :Insert Dramatic music: Ok seriously, First you have Fluttershy saying "Even Tweets don't make sense anymore!" and now we have these,to me, cute bugs that look like fireflies, except the have a lightening shaped glow tail and they can cause a small/huge lightning storm! Got off topic, so Hasbro doesn't like Twitter, or something? I don't know, any way the former CMC member starts catching the bugs, which it looks awesome the way she did it, is now questioning if she wants to go off catching insects for the rest of her life, huh, saying out loud made me think about the creator of Pokemon, go look it up people I'm not wasting any time on that. Other then that let me say this: Gotta Catch'em all!
Anyway a short encounter with Diamond Tiara and silver Spoon, I hate those two for what they did to Scottaloo!!! Back on topic, Apple Bloom runs away after she tosses the jar of bugs on the ground, sensing a plot~! Running into a forest she starts complaining about her new Cutie Mark, when a voice is saying "Why don't you just get rid of it then?" Ok IS THAT STARLIGHT GLIMMER INVADING APPLE BLOOM'S DREAM!? I mean I know for a fact that Luna is a dream walker but freaking Starlight?! Wow, that actually would make a good plan for her, fill up a filly's head that Cutie marks are bad there for, earning the "Equality" cutie mark. It's perfect!
So her Cutie mark is gone just when a disaster strikes, literally thanks to the Twittermites. A.B. tries to fix the problem but she's no longer a pest pony, to make matters worse she watches as her home gets blown up RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. That... I have no words, please excuse me while I go cry in a corner for the apple family.
Wait a second, that was all just a dream?! After waking up from a crazy nightmare, I often get those too, Apple Bloom heads down for breakfast, again, ok those pancakes look yummy, what did you put in there A.J.? So A.J. is saying that Apple Bloom has gotten her cutie mark, Apple Bloom is shocked, she's not the only one that's shocked(looks to the audience). Feels like something from the Twilight Zone or the X-Files. So Apple bloom goes to tell her friends that she got her cutie mark, sadly Scoots and Sweetie Bell haven't gotten theirs and Apple bloom points out that she wanted all of them to get their cutie marks at the same time. And Apple Bloom calls a meeting when Sweetie Bell says that she can't be a CMC member now that she has a cutie mark, after getting kicked out of the club house, which is ON HER LAND, A.B. runs into that creepy forest again and Starlight removes the cutie mark again.
Returning to the club house she tells the girls that she's a blank flank again, but, Scoots and Sweetie bell have their own Cutie Marks and just leave Apple bloom all alone. Well some friends they are!! Turns out that was only a dream as well, insert being called for breakfast and A.J. sees her cutie mark again, but something is off. WHERE'S HER HAT?! Something wrong here, Apple Jack NEVER takes off her hat!!!! Apple Bloom gets a look at her THIRD cutie mark and its....a dolphin? What the heck?! After some voice swaps, a little scary and funny, they tell Apple Bloom to leave. Ok, first of all that is cruel, and what happened to that song "Apples to the Core"?!
Apple Bloom wakes up, again, I'm seeing a pattern here, and looks in the mirror and is happy to see that she doesn't have a cutie make. Turning away from the mirror we see that she does have one, and each time we see her side the cutie mark changes, is this the cutie pox all over again?(Never saw that episode but I know enough about it.) She ends up in the forest again with Starlight when A.B. tells her to go away when Luna shows up...LUNA!!!!!
:Tackle hugs the Princess of the night:
Back to the review, Luna tells Apple Bloom how can Starlight can go away she is Apple Bloom's shadow, wait...WHAT?! That was Apple Bloom's shadow the whole time?! Awww, but they had such a perfect opportunity. :Sighs:
So Luna shows Apple bloom that the other members of the CMC are having the same problems, Scootaloo looks like she would make an awesome daredevil on a scooter, and sweetie Bell would make an awesome singer. So they all meet in the Dream clubhouse, and OMG Scoots is flying!!!! Even though it's just a dream I'm happy.
Moral of this episode is this: A cutie mark won't change you, no matter what you get, also don't worry about something too much, it'll give you some messed up nightmares.
All in all, this was a good episode, hopefully we'll get one with Scootaloo soon.
