After a 2 week hiatus with no new episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, we are given one of the best episodes of this season yet. It starts out with Twilight Sparkle and Spike going around town doing things on a checklist from returning a blackboard, to getting some cupcakes. Back at the Ponyville Library, Spike is relieved that there is no new lesson of friendship to send to Princess Celestia this week. Twilight panics in fear of being tardy, and goes around the town to see how she can help any of her friends so she can get a friendship lesson. All throughout the town though, Twilight sees that none of her friends need help, causing her to go insane. Twilight's friends don't really pay much mind to what's happened and just enjoy the picnic. In a desperate way to learn a friendship lesson, she takes her Mr. Smarty Pants doll and enchants it, making the whole town go nuts for the doll. Eventually Princess Celestia comes in, saves the town, and orders Twilight back to the library. At the library, Twilight explains she needed to send a letter so she wouldn't be tardy and expresses her sorrow. The princess states she doesn't need a friendship report every week though making Twilight feel relieved. Twilight's friends come in and defend that they should've been there for their friend and the princess agrees to not punish Twilight in return that all the friends make a friendship report. Twilight learns that the princess learned of the trouble by Spike's letter and she and the others show respect toward him. Our episode ends with Spike writing a letter for all the friends. This was one of the best episode of FiM yet, and for many reasons. They way Twilight goes insane was hilarious as well as how Big Macintosh takes the doll for himself at the end. I also loved the therapist scene with Twilight and Rainbow Dash. I also really loved the fact that Spike was the hero! Spike sent the letter in time to the princess so she could help save the town. Spike played a major role in this episode and was the real hero today. I for one loved this and gives more love to the little dragon. Overall, many laughs to be found, a great story, and Spike being given love, this episode of FiM is a must see!
FINAL SCORE: 10/10
