Just for Sidekicks
was full of adorable. As an animal lover myself, I greatly enjoyed this episode. There was just so much cute, both from the pets and maybe a little Sweetie Belle. But I'm gonna let some screencaps do the talking this time around.
Finally, some clarification on Pee Wee. Apparently, the reason we haven't seen him around is because Spike eventually returned him to his parents, which was the moral thing to do of course. Just found that interesting. Moving on!
Is it just me, or did Fluttershy intentionally
try to guilt Spike into taking care of Angel? Well, I suppose it's more like bribery, but either way, that seemed pretty out of character.
Huh. Apparently Tank's propeller is magic-powered. Was that noticeable back in season 2, because if it was, I never noticed.
And speaking of Tank:
D'a--uh...you feeling okay, Gummy?
Ah, of course. Cupcakes make everything better.
Quick! Get a cupcake!
Uh oh. Gummy just showed emotion. Shit's about to go down.
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?! NIGHTMARES FOR WEEKS!Buy your dog-pancake maker today!
Alright, I actually want to talk about this one. See that blue pony there? That's Screw Loose. Look familiar? You might remember her from Read it and Weep
back in season 2. You know, the pony who was barking like a dog? Yeah, it's a neat, little cameo, and this scene is quite heartwarming in my opinion. She's a mentally-challenged character, there's no denying it, but she seems so normal here, and that's probably what they were going for. And I like it. Also, I never noticed Big Mac and Cheerilee in the background there until I went back to get this picture. Seems to me like they're still hitting it off."No! Not charity! Anything but charity!"
You're probably expecting me to make a Katamari Damacy joke, right? Well, I guess technically this counts, so you're right.
HRGH! God...dammit...Sweetie Belle!
And that's all I got. We ended up getting a lot of references to previous episodes in this one, which is fine by me. One thing of note concerning Angel as well: Even though he's a complete ass most of the time, we really see how much he cares and depends on Fluttershy here. He's one of those love-you-but-I-won't-admit-it kind of characters.
Another thing too was how this episode was setting up for next week's episode, Games Ponies Play
. Yeah, all that "Crystal Empire" and "Equestria Games" stuff will come to fruition next week, which means more Cadance and Shining Armor. Looking forward to that.
Also, sorry for all the pics. It's just that most of the stuff worth talking about was visual, soooooo...yeeeaaah.
