Season 4 Episode 17 Streaming/Discussion Thread The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 471828

This week's episode is titled Maud Pie and is written by Noelle Benvenuti The synopsis is:
Pinkie Pie’s sister Maud (take that fanon) is coming to Ponyville, and Pinkie can’t wait for her friends and sister to meet and become best friends. But when it turns out that Maud is very different than was described, the girls find bonding with her a challenge.

Inkie, please don't cry! Hasbro might have forgotten you but we haven't!

I am disappointed in that they had to bring up a new sister when they had two perfectly good blank slates to use already. It's wasteful and seems to go against what was shown in Cutie Mark Chronicles for no good reason. It's a decision I do not understand. Though to be fair it lets us preserve our precious fanon about her and Blinkie, so I guess that's nice, too. Would have been lovely to see them again, been waiting for that ever since I'd heard there was a Pie sister episode coming up…

Doesn't she have two sisters? Does only one love her?

>>471934
The other two were changelings.
As is Pinkie, but she after the sonic rainboom she kind of unremembered that part of her.

I think maud is inky

and to be fair it's not the first thing in cutiemark chronicles to be contradicted, in fact I think by this point we can say that it's not a canon episode.
that or everypony's a liar

Rambling!Rose//pzOM 471942

>>471940
…derp, I suppose she could be. If she is, nevermind me.

And hey, clearly all the episodes after CMC are not canon, it came before, after all! It is a rather problematic episode, though, it really is.

We could just modify what happened in CMC to fit the cannon for our personal head cannon.

Wasn't the Pinkie Pie Sister episode ORIGINALLY suppose to be about Inky Pie or the other sister?

Anonymous 472191

Oh, Maud.

Ranbo and Appuhjack don't leap into action trying to save Pinkie Pie? DHX pls. You can totally make them fail so that Maud has to save the day (like, one tries to stop the rock while the other tries to get Pinkie clear, and neither is sufficient) but there's no way they'd just sit back looking pretty.

Absolutely loved it. One of the best so far this season.

I liked Maud. I didn't like Pinkie's voice cracking and her sounding so excited all the time. Other than that I guess she was okay. The whole "one thing to help us bond" thing seemed rather odd, but okay, fine. Them all arriving at the rock farm faster than Pinkie and Maud seemed rather odd, as well. How'd they know how to go there, and so fast, too? And hauling all that candy! Overall, though, the episode was okay. Still not super certain why they had to retcon a new sister in when they had two good candidates to use already but that didn't ruin the episode for me. The thing that was the closest to it was Pinkie screaming, though the others not doing stuff when Pinkie was in trouble was a bit troublesome as well. Smelled like Daring Don't, that. One of the better episodes this season still, though it wasn't super awesome or anything. Maud was fun. Such a poet~


>>471940
Nah, looks like she wasn't Inkie, after all. Wrong colours all around.

>>471993
You mean like retcon? Yes, that is probably what I'll do with my headcanon if I have to and I try to consider the new episodes canonical, but to me that is just bad writing overall. Of course, consistency isn't exactly the number one goal of this type of show.

Well. There can be only one answer. Clearly Pinkie has three sisters. She does make reference to Maud being her older sister, and while cutie mark acquisition is not a definite sign of age, suggesting Pinkie had two younger sisters whom she acquired her cutie mark before would explain it. This is the explanation I'll be running with.



Oh wow, check this! Watch the song from the Cheese Sandwich episode! In it, there's a picture of her first party on the rock farm, and she does indeed have all three sisters!

Great episode; touching, funny, easy to relate to, etc. Maude is the best new character since Babs.

Hmm, the one they aired on the Hub must have been an earlier version of the episode…

>>472213
>Since Babs
Babs was a best new character at some point? But yes, Maud is awesome.

Lol, where did you get that? I suspecting she might have contracted Shining Armor disease actually. Maybe they were a thing back in the day, while Cadence was watching Twilight.

was a quick edit. "Shining Armour was there all along" was a silly thing at some point and there are some similarities here, though not nearly as bad.

>>472213
>>472407
Actually… Are you saying Coco isn't best new character material?

Please. Cheese Sandwich is the best new character. Who likes Coco?

Cheese Sandwich is basically Weird Al to me. That's why I think he was a great choice for a "celebrity" appearance on the show: he can totally be himself and fit in to the MLP universe (quite well, as we have seen). But to say Cheese is the best "new character" to me feels like saying Weird Al is the best new character of the show. *shrugLucy*

Coco isn't a bad character, but her appearance in the show isn't very memorable. Babs and Maude both have episodes which are centered around them, and they both have unresolved complexities (combined with likable personas) that will make them go a longer way in the collective imagination of the fandom than say, Trenderhoof.

Just watched it. Wow. This was the stupidest cartoon I've ever seen, and this is coming from someone who sat through a few Fat Albert episodes. Kept thinking, OK so the cold open sucks, it'll pick up. OK, the first act sucked, it'll redeem itself anytime now. Aaaaanytime.

Nope. There was absolutely nothing of merit to this one. Not a single chuckle, nary a twinge of feel, nothing. That Bullwinkle movie with De Niro was more entertaining. The Star Wars Holiday Special was profound and touching in comparison. And if they reuse that fucking grin-squeak thing ONE MORE TIME I'm gonna punch an animator, holy fuck.
