Unexpected visitors to Ponyville threaten to break up the Cutie Mark Crusaders forever.

 

This thread is dedicated to discussing the episode before, during, and afterwards. As the thread is now open it may indeed contain spoilers. I ask that potential spoilers talked about or shown before the episode airs stay within the spoiler tags please, after the episode you no longer have to use the spoiler tags, but warning, if you haven't seen the episode yet after it airs, this thread no doubt will have all sorts of spoilers in reviews, images, etc. So tread at your own risk

As a scootaloo main (lol), I approve this episode times 10. Being the spoiler magnet I am, I already knew about the aunt thing, but I didn't expect the non-permanent residence to start off with. The idea that she was basically shared around is as fanon as it gets.

 

I guess It's Scootaloo Irwin then. To be honest, I was expecting something more along the lines of the Everfree forest, kind of disappointed, but maybe they've already been there. Damn, I'm too tired to think. Will post more later.

Very cute episode.

Would have preferred if Scoot moved with her parents as that's usually the case in real life.

 

Her aunts are adorable. They look a bit different than what they did in the book. Which I only saw via the cover. Although I'd still love to see why Scoots can't fly.

I loved this episode loads and loads. The parents were fun, the aunts were sweet, the conflict felt very real. I do dislike that we missed a chance at having an important lesson about growing up and what that sometimes entails being learned, but it was a super sweet episode regardless.

I did not like Scootaloo’s parents.  Her aunts seemed like better parents than they are.  To put raising their child off on others so that they can focus on what they want to do in life seems seriously selfish.  I get needing to have a job and traveling for work, but how many nights did Scootaloo have to put herself to bed or cook her own dinner?  Military families move regularly, so why have a house in Ponyville when you can stay together in the place you are working?  (I guess I’m thinking like the show The Wild Thornberry’s.)  Also, why did it take Sombra coming back to compel them to finally be a family again?  Equestria has been threatened several times before, so why is this time any different?  

 

Maybe it’s because I am a parent, but I just can’t see leaving my son for such an extended period like that and missing so many important milestones.

Considering this isn't say the second season, but almost half a season until the series is over..I was surprised Scoots didn't move on....So far this show..If you leave a friend they become EVIL! Also, if you remember an previous episode... "Parental Glideance' where Scootaloo says, ". Growing up, I never thought I'd be the best at anything, because nopony ever told me. But your parents told you over and over again. Look! Best bath taker ever. Best carrot eater under three. Greatest napper of all time!"

 

Wish they addressed that in this episode...:-|

Of course, I we're thinking about this too hard, methinks. Last season, wanted to tackle the subject of Scootaloo's parents, wanted to detail why we don't see them, wanted to make them Aussie Pones, and went from there. There are multiple potential lessons or morals left untaught that I think would have been interesting to pursue that they did not.

In this episode: 

 

Scootaloo decides to stay Canadian instead of assimilating back into Australia.

Oh yeah, I'm ALWAYS overthinking about ponies.

 

 

Always.

 

But you'll be surprised what sort of stuff they sneak in.
