Episode Countdown: S1 Ep5: Griffon the Brush Off Colshy!x04iLINER6 403400

It's 59 days before the new season of MLP arrives!


Following the countdown, today's episode will be Griffon the Brush Off, written by Cindy Morrow. Quoting the MLP Wikia website
" In this episode, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash bond by playing pranks on the other ponies, but when Rainbow Dash's old friend, Gilda the Griffon, shows up for a visit, Pinkie gets left out."

Feel free to discuss from the things you liked to those you want to change.

And sorry for the delay. Had to deal with some stuff IRL.

I always felt like there was a ton of potential for Gilda to return and there be some sort of resolution between her and Dashie (that seems like a rather…inconclusive note to end a relationship on), but we've yet to see it, and honestly if it doesn't happen some time in S4 I doubt it will (assuming we get more than four seasons, which is of course still up in the air.)

Never really cared about this one. I remember I forgot about it when I was streaming we had just done Applebuck Season and I wasn't sure if Boast Busters or Dragonshy was next. Googled and was like "oh yeah, this episode exists."

Paying attention, writing staff? This is how you write Pinkie well–and Dash, for that matter.

I liked the episode. Best part: Little Miss Main-Character Twilight giving Pinkie glib, politically-correct advice that was just completely WRONG! What I'd change: I'd try to make it clearer that Gilda blew Dash off at the end, not vice versa. It really was Gilda who delivered the ultimatum, but maybe the Embodiment of the Element of Loyalty could have been a little more torn, you know?

That's the whole thing, though. Dash made a decision about who she wanted to associate with, based on character, rather than the impression of "coolness" (remember when she wanted to avoid Pinkie at the beginning of the episode?). "Loyalty" isn't about being fatuous to how people behave–it's about recognizing good qualities in others, despite outward appearances and show (the name "Gilda" is probably derived from "gilded", the same way Trixie's name gives us a clue about her character).

Twilight: Pinkie, I'm sure you're just imagining that Gilda's a grumpy meanie-pants.

[Some time passes.]

Everyone: Twilight, we're sure you're just imagining that Cadence is an evil demandy-pants.
