Episode Countdown: S1 Ep24: Owl's Well That Ends Well Colshy!x04iLINER6 414193

42 days until the new season of MLP starts!

Todat we're presenting Owl's Well That Ends Well written by Cindy Morrow.


In this episode, Twilight finds an owl, whom she names Owlowiscious to help her at night in the wake of Spike needing his nightly sleep. But Spike sees Owlowiscious as a contender to his place as #1 assistant.

Bluh. The first of many rather subpar Spike episodes. The most inconsistently characterized…er, character on the show.

So, the worst episode of the season sandwiched between two of the best episodes.

It's hard for me to say precisely why I dislike this episode so much. It's very cathartic–a "nobody loves me" type story. Twilight doesn't say it directly, but alludes to it when she says "this is not the Spike I know and love." Of course, as adults we know what she means; but that's not how Spike takes it, and that's really the important thing from a psychological point of view.

There's a reconciliation at the end, but it's just not satisfying for me. Twilight reassures Spike that she would never replace him, but there is no acknowledgment of hurt feelings, which is what the whole mess is all about.
