No, Spike has actually always been the cause of many errors, mistakes… throughout the entire show. Actually, there are lots of things I've discovered and always knew a very long time ago about Spike's character. It was Twilight herself all along who saved the Crystal Empire, not him. She knew where to find the heart, she found the hidden passage to it, she told Spike to bring it back, risking herself by failing Celestia's test…

The writers had that in mind the whole time until the fans suddenly wanted them to change that because they were just sick and tired of Spike's abuse, horrible treatments, and how he mostly spent his appearances in the shadows in all the previous seasons. They wanted them to put an end to the damage on Spike's role, treatments… but never realized or wanted to realize that they've damaged the entire SHOW themselves because of that.

They couldn't learn to get used to it and were too sensitive over that. He was meant only to be the simple sidekick and a goofy character that provides comic relief, screws up, embarrassing himself… usually, a simple background character. The episode "Princess Spike" where he completely messes up was one of his usual, typical roles, then learning his lessons… in "Secret of My Excess"… And in "Just for Sidekicks" where he looks after the Mane Six's pets while they're gone on adventures, no wonder why he was (supposed to) mostly left behind and only had few appearances throughout the show.

The show's based on ponies, which means THEY are the ones who defeat villains, going on adventures… and the show became a total disaster because of the changes in Spike the writers did because of those sensitive fans. The episode "Gauntlet of Fire" had major flaws, as well, and MANY others, especially Spike episodes. All the more reason why there weren't supposed to be and shouldn't have been any Spike episodes AT ALL. I gotta say that the episode was written by the fans themselves. Twilight couldn't handle some teenage dragons, (creatures who only could fly and breath fire, no magic, completely weak and harmless enough against powerful, magical ponies) but in other episodes like "Twilight's Kingdom", she confronts Tirek just fine, which proves that is just one of those stupid excuses from the fans to show Spike doing something good for once, just for once. Of course, he only hands over the specter to Ember. All this "character development" Spike got was a huge mistake made by the fans themselves, and totally caused the show to derail completely!

The writers of the show had to do those catastrophic changes just so those Spike fans wouldn't stop watching the show and would have fewer watchers (or probably no watchers at all) and all their hard work on it would've been for NOTHING. They'd CANCEL the entire show, throw it away straight in the trash can.

First with the "Spike getting all the mares" nonsense, and now this…
Spike's "character development" literally caused the entire show to derail completely.

Good to see that Spike is finally strong enough to stand against a major villain like Chrissy.

I'm pretty sure it's not just the fire, it's the pressure the fire is being shot at.

I'd say Spike and Rarity remains pretty platonic friendship or no hints at all.

This is the first time Spike actually fights against Queen Chrysalis in canon. Because the Guardian of Harmony toys have Spike to fight against Chrysalis before this episode long ago.

That seriously was a Sparity moment. Unfortunately, they were in the middle of the fight and couldn't talk much.

I always knew he had it in him.

I still don't understand why people don't get what was happening with the Celestia and Chrysalis fight all these years later. Celestia didn't expect her to be that strong so she held back some and got surprised when she started to lose. It just happened so fast she had no time to adjust. Even Chrysalis was shocked she won that one.

Also this isn't stupid anyway even if you wanted to argue that Celestia was weaker than Chrysalis powered up on love. In this form she is sharing power between 2 other creatures so there is no way to know if she is as strong as she was before. Even if she was Spike had molted by this point clearly increasing his strength and Rarity we had almost never seen fight up till this point so we didn't know how strong she was. Plus both of them only lasted a few seconds at best against her anyway until they combined their efforts.

I would try to make a point that Chrysalis was powered up at that time too, from feeding off Shining Armor’s love, but seeing as she’s even more powerful now, than she was then, I’d have to agree.

This was just plain stupid, considering Chrysalis beam outdid Celestia.
