SHE'S EATING HER EYE'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully they make her interesting to watch. Cuteness and stuff blowing up a good character does not make.

You're right. IT JUST MAKES THEM AWESOME!!!!

I look forward to her little actions. Maybe a few character qualities and such that give her her own mindset. (Might not be too easy for a newborn though)

All Hail our Dark God Satan Flurry Heart.

5/7 would

:pinkiehappy:This should be a good one.

Still think Shiny and Cadance gave her the wrong name. Should be called Stormageddon.

Twilight has friends who can help her shop for the sick foals while she watches Flurry Heart.

Flurry's wings are hella big.

I change diapers Cadance.

That's not nearly enough.

You know, when the rich parents of a evil abomination show up with disheveled hair, not knowing what time of day it is, wanting to ditch the child for an art show...the first thing you do is ask how many babysitters it went through before you brought it here.

I once visited the Museum of Modern Art. I swear I saw a boot hanging from a string.

I know that feel.

Can't Twilight feed Flurry while she picks up the supplies?

I'm not gonna lie I didn't think I would enjoy this episode. It's pretty good so far.

I get that Shining and Cadence went on the trip at the last minute, but why didn't they get Sunburst to babysit Flurry Heart? They don't give any explanation as to why he can't do it. Where is he? Is he suddenly in a threesome with Trixie and Starlight (If that's the case, I can totally get behind that.) Again, I know they said last minute, but don't tell me Cadence and Shining never bothered to have additional nannies or something.

4505772 Maybe they want Flurry near by while they're in Ponyville?

4505772

Sunburst is smart enough not to be left alone with the monster

Shining and Cadance should make Flurry's carriage un-teleportable (Like how it's impossible to disparate from Hogwarts).

OI FLURRY'S GONNA PLAY WITH PUMPKIN AND POUND YAS

Yeah...the milk bottle...that's where that came from suuuuure:ajbemused:

kztxl7 #21 · Apr 22nd, 2017 · · 1 ·

Grogar mention!

Awww yeah!

Wait I thoughts Twilight had earth pony strengh and flight... wait Twilight can barely fly... no plot hole here.

Also Flurry is smarter then she looks...

I know Flurry is a baby alicorn, but her powers are so OP. Levitating most of the ponies inside a hospital? I doubt even Starlight can do that.

So anyone gonna say something about how twilight took a baby to a hospital filled with sick foals?

4505788 Has Flurry been vacinated? :duck:

Twilight's begging Flurry to put them down...

So, she can't overpower the magic herself?

Huh, two seasons ago, she couldn't beat a unicorn, and now a baby.

Congrats Twilight, you've reached a new low.

4505791 And to think that couldn't be possible.

So, just gonna point this out but, why didn't Twilight think to at least possibly get Pinkie's help to watch Flurry Heart to begin with? And for the record, just where the heck was Starlight? I know she probably had to be written out so that she wouldn't be able to stop Flurry Heart or reign in Twilight, but I hope they're not going to go back to the same route she was in in Season 6, she's only relevant for her focus episodes and then the rest of the episodes she doesn't exisit.

At the end of the day, I didn't get much of a Baby Cakes vibe. This episode kind of felt similar to Applebuck Season. You have a pony being stubborn over doing everything (In this case, Twilight). And another character trying to be the voice of reason and tell them to stop (This case, it's Spike.) Combine that with some minor elements of Baby Cakes and you got yourself Flurry of Emotions.

I am curious about the whole book Spike was reading to the foals though. The character is a dragon, a foal even said he looks like the dragon on the cover, and uses one liners (like Spike too). Could this be foreshadowing for his future in the show or something? I really hope so.

4505791
You know, I think when Twilight gave Luna, Celestia, and Cadence their magic back, I think some of her own magic went with it, thus explaining why she couldn't beat Starlight and Flurry. Also, who'd want to use violence on this cuteness?

4505800
I don't know. They were probably living their lives doing other stuff?

4505800

Pinkie was at work, Starlight was on time out.

4505791 Proof Twilight has truly ascended to alpha alicorn status like Celestia and Luna; she's now vulnerable to laser-guided disempowerment at the whims of the plot. :twilightoops:

On the plus side, Spike was great. When it counts, he's been incredibly mature and responsible so far. At this rate, he'll be running Ponyville by the end of the season. :moustache:

4505791

It's not about Twilight being unable to "overpower" Flurry (she did, each time she set a bed down) so much as Flurry not giving up and lifting the beds off again as soon as she could put them down. But then I feel like you knew that.

4505744

Babies aren't "characters", they're babies. Yeah they can have their own unique personalities, to an extent, but they'll never make interesting characters unless they're heavily anthropomorphized (for lack of a better word) as adults. Think "Rugrats" or "Family Guy".

Anyway, it was an absolutely adorable and chuckle-worthy, but somewhat forgettable episode. Also Nurse Redheart's back with a new cutie mark. It's about time she showed up again, making her the first instance in the franchise of a cutie mark changing after being obtained.

I think people are giving Flurry a little too much flak this episode. Yes Flurry was disruptive, but more than a few times Twilight wasn't paying attention at critical moments; the scene at Sugarcube corner anyone?

4505791
To be fair, Flurry has shown more power than we've ever seen from Celestia (the most we saw from her was from the battle in the season 4 premier) and Twilight was trying to gently lower the foals, so she couldn't just mass rip them out of Flurry's grip, especially when Flurry picked them back up.

As for Starlight, she won through a surprise attack in their first fight and never beat Twilight in the second. All she had to do was stop the race while Twilight had to prevent that and capture her without being flashy enough to stop the race with the display.

This episode's script needed to go through another draft.

I got my wish that Flurry Heart be more interesting to watch, but I couldn't enjoy her shenanigans because I kept shouting to the television 'Where is Starlight!?' 'Or Sunburst!?' No explanation given whatsoever, which is a mark against the episode's quality. Also, the ending with Twilight yelling at Flurry was hella rushed and resolved way too quickly. That needed to happen in the second act, maybe right before the commercial break. And honestly? The 'moral' at the end was a return to the style prevalent in earlier seasons where they narrate with such blatancy that it shows they don't believe the audience has any brain with which to digest the information themselves, which, come on, children deserve more credit than that!

But all of these problems are gonna be overlooked because people are easily distracted sheep who just want to see cute stuff. Saying it like it is people, but feel free to prove me wrong. Hell, I'd love to be proven wrong.

Or you're making a giant problem out of something so easily explained.

Starlight wasn't there because she has a life of her own as well and Sunburst was probably gone and busy as well.

It takes two seconds to think for yourself to resolve this issue.

I actually liked this episode! It's was cute one. Flurry is honestly really adorable :heart:

For the people complaining about Flurry being too OP, remember that foals have surges? Pound and Pumpkin did a lot of things foals shouldn't have in 'Baby Cakes'. Same thing with Flurry is happening here. We saw what Pound and Pumpkin did, and they were just normal foals. Flurry is an Alicorn! So that probably makes a lot of difference.

4505819

Yeah they can have their own unique personalities

Yeah, that's what I was getting at, and it happened.

Honestly, I kinda liked this episode. I have extensive thoughts about it in my blog, but even without it I can say with confidence that this an overall decent episode.

4505836

It's silly to say "where was Starlight or Sunburst!?" any time they don't appear in an episode.

Starlight lives in the palace, but it's not like she's GLUED to the place. She's free to leave, and with a wandering magician as a BFF, it's not hard to believe she would take trips with her.

Sunburst is Flurry's teacher, not her babysitter.

Hell I could turn this around and add that they brought Flurry to Twilight Sparkle instead of Flurry's grandmother, Twilight Velvet, who would be better equipped to care for a baby (having done it twice now). But that doesn't really make it a plot hole or bad writing that they they don't waste time specifically dismissing every other possible course of action Cadence and Shining Armor could have taken. You could snidely remark that the timing is extremely plot-convenient, but that's far from episode-ruining or terrible writing.

4505839 Yes, an explanation can indeed exist. But we never got to see what she's currently doing with her life. Like, if she left at the start of the episode to go do something. The show needs to actually show these things.

4505848
You complained about an element being resolved to quickly and rushed yet you want them to spend more screentime on an element that is completely unnecessary?

They're not available. The reasoning for this isn't rocket science. Life. Done. Move on.

4505848

No, they don't, unless it's relevant to the plot and/or interesting to the viewer.

A very enjoyable episode. Season 7 has been pretty solid so far and I hope it stays that way.

4505846 It wouldn't take a whole lot of running time to explain why Starlight wasn't available. And yeah, she lives her own life, but the previous two episodes made it clear that Starlight wasn't leaving Ponyville, so it comes off as strange and short-sighted that she suddenly wouldn't be there at a time where Twilight could've really used her help.

That's just one issue of several I listed in my 'review'. All of it together makes it a very, very meh episode. They're all faults with the writing, and I'm not going to gloss over said faults because 'it's a cartoon' (because children deserve better), but it's not like I'm saying the episode was written by talentless hacks. It's just a very forgettable episode, one that didn't need to be.

4505851 Refer to my comment below for my rebuttal.

4505836 Ah, the old "everyone who thinks otherwise is a mindless sheep" argument. I love that one. Good show.
