Okay, I guess.
So I assume this was Rarity's final episode.
Pretty unsatisfactory and unfilling, mostly because of Gabby. If they really wanted to take this route, why they couldn't just use Smolder instead of bringing back that annoying bird, oh well.

Yes, but after seeing how Smolder basically kicked Ember out from the series after taking her spot as Spike's friend, it was surprising to see the staff bringing up yet another of their own characters to remind the audience about how unique and special she was.

Isn't Ember Lewis and Songco?

Smolder's existence seems to me to be entirely because Ember can't really be a supporting cast member, being the ruler of a somewhat distant land after all.

Smolder is also voiced by a regular cast member, where as Ember is a guest star.

Skimming express version.

Looks like a Starlight to take over the school episode, but she's having issues getting teachers to fill in the gaps the mane six will leave.

And Trixie is not the best teacher, apparently. And this leads to conflict.

So just like real life, girls get pissed when their beta-orbiters find someone else that actually loves them and will do anything to ruin it. Not that they'd ever return the guy's feelings, but they're so used to having the attention and having things done for them without giving anything in return.

>Spike finally finds someone who is genuinely romantically interested in him, and doesn't take advantage of him

Are we supposed to feel sorry for Rarity? Because this feels more like karma for how she's treated Spike.

I just hope it's not another one where Starlight fails at life, and Trixie is objectively right about everything.

Not that I disagree with that characterisation, but their relationship is getting slightly lopsided.
