Well What Lies Beneath was supposed to be a serious episode that focused on developing the Student 6 and putting them to the test for much much later in the season and the final one so that’s why the comedy felt lacking. The tests were a bit weird for some of them but I think the Tree did a good job at it, which btw I still have to question why it had no qualms in trapping them beneath the school for I think forever if they failed the tests.
[…]I agree that season 5 is a great season, and some of my favourites are (besides the opener) Bloom and Gloom (reminds me of one of my favourite Stargate Universe episodes), Amending Fences (Minuette and dénouement for S1E1), and Crusaders of the Lost Mark (great songs and dénouement for the CMC).
I also don’t understand how Fluttershy went back to Cloudsdale after establishing in Cutie Mark Chronicles that she couldn’t fly that high (that flashback scene).
