Last season on Friendship is Magic, Rainbow Dash's episode, Sonic Rainboom, was a big flop. Well this time it seems we got an episode for all to enjoy and is one of the best. We open up to Rainbow flying around, and sees Twilight Sparkle's pet owl, Owlowiscious. They both race, but then Applejack's dog, Winona, comes up, and then Fluttershy's pet bunny, Angel, Pinkie Pie's pet alligator, Gummy, and Rarity's cat, Opal. Rainbow falls and wakes up to see it was a dream and her friend's and their pets were here for a pet play date. Rainbow says she doesn't need a pet, but caves in and Fluttershy takes her to see various pets from seals to eagles. Rainbow decides to have a competition to see who will be the best. They have competitions determining, Speed, Agility, Awesomeness, and so on. Throughout the race, there is a tortoise that fails at everything while various flying creatures like the eagle and falcon win. The final part of the race is a tie breaker, and it is who can beat Rainbow Dash in a race through Ghastly Gorge. During the race, Rainbow crashes into the wall, and causes an avalanche and she gets her wing stuck. While the other birds race off, the tortoise comes and helps Rainbow. The birds makes it across the finish line, and Rainbow comes soon with the tortoise. Rainbow states that despite the falcon winning, she said the animal had to cross the finish line with her. She chooses the tortoise for helping her and has Spike take a letter. Rainbow learns that pets aren't about physical conditions, but those who show love and affection for you in return. Our episode ends with Rainbow and her friends going on a pet play date, and her new pet tortoise, Tank, follows her on a helicopter. In my opinion, this episode was just awesome in many ways. I loved the talent show part of the episode with the bat playing the theme to this show, to how the wasp made hand shadows. I also loved the musical number this episode had since we haven't had one since The Best Night Ever back in season 1. I also enjoyed how Tank was trying so hard throughout the competition and was funny. Overall, for a Rainbow Dash episode, this was just so awesome! I recommend this for all to view.
FINAL SCORE: 10/10
