Remember that video I put up about what Lauren planned for Scootaloo? Well see what I think in regards to how Scoots has been recognized by the writers of the show in comparison. In all fairness, both character paths are brilliant IMO, but only one can exist on screen.
I need THIS NOW.
And yes that is totally a remote control transformer…no it’s not one of the Hasbro ones :-P
It’s Pinkie! Loved the episode. And it had some deeper elements too! Here’s my review of Too Many Pinkies!

THE BEST EARGASM I’VE EVER HAD OOOHHHHH
OH MY GOOOOOOD.
You know I always wondered if these two songs would go together
I don’t even know what these songs are and I’m diggin this…
As Phoe mentions from EQD (Basically the same exact thing I said in my review of S3E1)
“Sombra is not cut from the same cloth as other Friendship is Magic Villains. The strong personalities and charisma of the likes of Discord or Chrysalis never seem to come into play with him. In fact, it’s only in his last few moments on screen when he even has a distinctive form, spending most of the rest of his time as an amorphous shadow-beast. Compared to the fan-favorite badguys of the past, it would appear that Sombra is lacking.
But the evil unicorn king doesn’t fill the same role as his predecessors. Unlike previous two-parters, the primary theme of the episode is not about thwarting or uncovering a villainous plot, but rather Twilight Sparkle wrestling with herself and solving the mysteries of the Crystal Empire. And while Sombra does play a key role in all of that, he does so as a part of its history and, should Twilight fail, its future. Sombra barely speaks, hardly ever crystalizes (ha, see what I did there), because to do so would be contrary to his role in the narrative. Instead, he serves as a looming threat. He cripples Shining Armor and gradually drains Cadance of her power, removing the crutches Twilight has to lean on and forcing her to make faster and more rapid decisions than she is typically comfortable with. He is the darkness, and the threat of failure, and both of these things are infinitely less threatening when they’re given form.
By pulling attention away from the newest villain, the episode is able to use him as a super intense magnifying glass to hover over our protagonist and provide a genuine sense of urgency to everything she does. That urgency in turn drives the story forward. You can certainly shine a bigger spotlight on him, but then it becomes a very different story.”
I still call FIRST :P
