So, when Trenderhoof's attention is drawn to Applejack, Rarity does the unexpected and begins to dress and act more like Applejack than herself, which ends up in a muddy mess.

Plot twist: Trenderhoof turns out to be Daring Do.

>muddy mess
Rarity mudwrestling? I might be okay with this!

Prediction and wild guessing time! Also assumptions galore!

Anywho, apart from hoping for possible mudwrestling, I'm going to assume AJ doesn't have an interest in Trenderhoof here. If she does, Rarity is going to look pretty bad, trying to possibly go between others. Yeah, people do that, but these are supposed to be good friends and Rarity if anypony should be willing to share! Generosity, after all!

So yeah, probably AJ will be all awkward because of the situation, or maybe tease Rares about it, but I don't see her taking any advances seriously. Maybe her goading gets Rares to step up her game or some such.

However, Rarity going so far as to try and be somepony else for somepony she hadn't met before seems weird. She is a lady, after all! Of course, this could be an extreme reaction to the Gala incident where she expected everything from the one she wanted and now is willing to do whatever to get them. …that sounds rather desperate. Well, I guess we'll see what actually happens.

If we don't have Spike trying to impress Rares or act aggressive towards Trenderhoof I'm going to be surprised. Oh, and the lesson is probably going to be about being true to yourself, since trying to be somepony else and living a lie doesn't make you as happy, or something similar. Mayhaps she gets Trenderhoof's attention but ends up resenting what she had to do to get it.

I'm a bit wary of them tackling romance in the show but if there's one pony who they should use with it, it's Rarity. Rarity's view on romance and relationships so far seems to have been from a storybook with the prince on a white horse - not like that, you dirty person, you, it's a figure of speech - and I am not certain it meshes well with what's being conveyed here. But all I've seen so far is the synopsis, so this is all just pointless speculation. I'll have to see how they do this

I suppose that wasn't terrible, even if I'm a bit surprised about Rarity's behaviour. That's not how she behaved when she had her eyes on Blueblood. Sadly I missed her telling when her crush on Trenderhood here started, could have been rather important. Overall, it felt rather awkward seeing Rarity try and be all country. Fabulous Applejack is fabulous, though, and if there's one pony who stole the show here it's AJ.

No mudwrestling. So sad.
>AJ has no interest in Trenderhoof and feels awkward about the situation
Check.
>Rarity tries to go between them
..check, in a way. That's not very nice of you, Rares, especially when AJ straight up tells you she has no interest in such things and you think she's lying.
>AJ goads Rares
Nope, apparently it was all Rares. Such a silly pony.
>reaction to Gala
Can't say, didn't quite hear what she said. Sounds like it's been a rather long crush considering the shrine and all that…
>Spike impressing Rares or harassing Trenderhoof
Nah. Well, I guess he was working for her but that's about it.

And obviously the lesson was about being who you are instead of trying to please others. It is rather odd how fast Rarity got over her super strong crush after having been so desperate to make senpai notice her. Her being so shy about her crush seemed rather odd, considering how bravely she just strolled to Blueblood and tried to get his attention when her main reason of going to the Gala and had been in her mind for a good while. This change seems really weird to me.

Anyhoof, I suppose I'll have to rewatch it later and see what I missed.

This episode was the very definition of mediocre.

Well that was weird.

I think I liked it more than mediocre. I can appreciate the risk producing a shipping episode is in this community, after Brad. Wasn't great though. Probably saved by Rarity. She makes everything she's in good.

I might have to give I a second view before I can offer a definitive opinion on it but beyond Tabitha's line delivery I can't think of much else I like about this episode.

I came into the episode late, but the first thing I saw was a stallion fawning over Applejack and I thought "Anonthony, get out of the show. You should be back on MLPChan"

1. Eyup, the Element of Harmony once again showing how she always thinks of others first.
2. Finally, some AJ appreciation.
3. What's your special talent when your cutie mark is argyle? Hipster…ing?

Overall, was an ok episode.

>>466519
Pony Twi all hot for human Brad will never stop being funny, 'cause that shit's canon.

It was "ok". Rarity doing the "country" thing was super creepy. It was a bit awkward to watch.

I do like how they wrote spike this episode, instead of making him some childish kid oblivious to everything. I like it when they write spike off as a more mature and slightly sarcastic character.
