“Break Up, Break Down” thoughts · 11:14am May 29th, 2018

When I saw the title, and who the main focus was gonna be,?all I thought was:

Oh no. This is gonna be one of those episodes. An emotional roller coaster ride.”

Well, I’m a masochist, so I went deep in to the story.

Hang on, I must be imagining this. Did Spike shipped Discord with Fluttershy?!....

....I honestly don’t know if that relationship will work out. Brawny made some convincing arguments on why that is not the case. But hey, I could be wrong.

Speaking of Discord, I. Really. Loved him in this episode. His cynical attitude towards romance is something he and I can relate, so it was a lot of fun to hear him bash The mushiness of romance in general. :rainbowwild: but despite his cynicism, he still went out of his way to help Big Mac. I’m happy to know how far Discord has come, and I would enjoy being friends with him.

On a side note: Discord and I share one more trait. When we want to play games with our friends, we Get extremely on the nose and persist in it. We’re both annoying. :twilightblush:

As for Spike, when he made that outlandish scenario to explain Sugar Belle’s “we’re finished speech,” I was like: “:facehoof: Spike. Please. Just shut up.” You can imagine my shock when I found out it was true. I was so eating my words.

The B-plot with the CMC was...pointless but interesting. Their search for Sweetie’s secret admire was pretty amusing. Especially with how forward Applebloom was with Pipsqueak. My favorite part was when Sweetie was talking snip and snails, asking them if they sent the box.

:unsuresweetie: “please say no, please say no.

:rainbowlaugh: Sweetie. You and I are on the same boat.

Now , as for the main attraction: Big Mac and Sugar Belle. Even though I will forever be a MacDash shipper, I still find this canon couple endearing.

I will say, when it became obvious to me that Big Mac was gonna Break up with Sugar Belle, I was constantly yelling “no” a lot, especially when the time was approaching. At one time, I said: I can’t watch this, but I have to!” and maaaan....It was really painful to watch Sugar Belle cry. :ajsleepy:

However, the reconciliation scene was very heartwarming to see. Glad to see them holding each other’s hooves again. Huh. Hearts and Hooves. Now it makes sense to me. :twilightblush:

I love this episode a lot. And I will definitely be watching it again.

....

Elephant: and just where do you think you’re going?

I waaaas going back to work.

Elephant: No you’re not.

What do you mean “I’m not?”

Elephant: don’t act so dumb, you know exactly why I’m stopping you.

....oh c’mon. Do I really need to talk about this?

Elephant: yes. You need to get this out your chest and not let it fester.

fine!

*sigh* I was hoping that homosexual relationships would be either kept out of the show, or kept in the background and remain subtle enough so that young minds will not pick up on that easily.

Up to this point, the writers kept the subject in the background and the only reason I knew they exist was because some perverts and wishful thinkers pointed them out. Unfortunately, it’s not the case here. One scene in the episode made it clear that Bon Bon and Lyra’s romantic relationship is considered canon. I’m not happy about that. No doubt, young kids are gonna pick up on the message and say, “wait a minute, they’re girls! Why are they dating each other?” Unless someone can point out that platonic valentine dates do happen in real life, which I find unlikely, this scene is gonna be a thorn to my eye.

Then again, there is a bright side to this. as long as none of the main characters are queers, I can still enjoy the show and remain happy.

This episode was dead to me the moment I read the one sentence summary and instantly knew this was one of those 'person overhears something and completely misinterprets it, and we the audience are supposed to swallow it hook line and sinker.' IMHO It's an insult to the audience's intelligence.

Not a fan of cliches, I see. Understandable.

I admit, that little scene disturbed me. I had, just hours before, assured someone that the show wasn't trying to force homosexuality on anyone.

Then, I watched the episode.

Grasping at straws, I just hope that it was a gesture between friends rather than... :unsuresweetie:

But if that's not the case, then yes, this is bad.
