Sunburst goes to Ponyville and steals all of Glimmy's waifus.

Like, that's basically what happens. I'm pretty sure this episode launched at least one new ship. All aboard the S.S. Giant Fucking Nerds.


Just look at those memefaces. They're practically made for each other.

Good Glimmer episode is good, all told. I loved the performances, and the interactions between Sunburst and all of Starlight's friends (also, how telling is it that she doesn't think about the rest of the Mane Six when she's considering how Sunburst relates to her friends? I think this episode kinda cements the idea that Starlight and Twilight keep different, if somewhat overlapping, cliques). Guest star Sunburst felt like a natural fit for the episode, and I couldn't really think of anything that felt forced or awkward.

If I did have to criticize, I'd say that I wish the resolution had been a bit more creative, and that there could have been a stronger emotional catharsis for Starlight and Sunburst. And I think it kinda treads on older ground, seeing as there was a CMC episode from last season that did something similar, but the characters and their dynamics/interplay made it feel like a fresh iteration.

But it was a good episode all around, with a good moral.

Also, Glimmer, what was going through your mind when you made this face...?


No one will ever look at you the way that Starlight Glimmer looks at Trixie.

For the time being, at least, it makes sense. Starlight has not shared years of epic (and mundane) life experiences with the rest of the Mane Six like Twilight has. They’ll always be there for her (it’s kinda, ya know, what they do now), but Starlight has made it her business to call the strays, and it is with them that she is coming into her own.

No one will ever look at you the way that Starlight Glimmer looks at Trixie.

1v1 me, Posh! Internet fight, right here, right now!

"That was a lot of fun, Starlight." Sunburst could not keep from smiling, and had no reason to. "Seven games of Dragon Pit with you and your friends. I've never felt younger."

Starlight held open the door to his room in the castle and returned his smile with interest. "Good! I'm glad you had fun. I've just got one more game I want to play before bedtime."

"Another game?" asked Sunburst. "Isn't it a little late?"

"Nonsense," scoffed Starlight. "After all, it's been years since we've been together. Just one more game? Please?"

"Well..." Sunburst looked into Starlight's eager eyes and felt his willpower crumble. "It depends. What game did you want to play."

"Doctor!" declared Starlight, closing the door behind them.

and then she pulls out the scalpel

All aboard the S.S. Giant F:yay:g Nerds.

Can we do this, or is this fated to end as badly as Flash Sentry did? Or did Flash Sentry take the bullet for everyone else who might dare come after?
