[SPOILER] Episode Discussion: MLP S4E08 - Rarity Takes Manehattan

Post by platinum on Sat Jan 04, 2014 11:12 am

Today we have our first Rarity centric episode of the season.

Rules:

1. From this post on, expect spoilers so please watch the episode(s) before continuing.

2. Keep it related to this episode (and previous episodes if drawing conclusions).

3. Don't spoil any leaks of future episodes (and for fairness sake, trailers for upcoming episodes).

4. Be civil. Keep the discussion show-related.

Whats up with the rainbows in this episode. I feel there is some deeper message behind it.

I expected the key to be in the gift box. This is the episode where Rarity exemplified her element. I was so sure that somepony would finally find a key.

It would be pretty odd for the key to be in the box.

Anyways, I liked the message and think it also applies to the other elements as well.

Foreshadowing.

They did find Rarity's key, it just isn't key shaped.

Great episode! One of the best in the whole series so far!

Watching it though, it reminded me of when I lived in the cities. When Manehatten came on screen, the first thing that pooped in my mind was that it's nearly exactly as I remembered (not the first time this season I've suddenly remembered something). Drawing comparisons, when I went on my baseball trip in Minneapolis, I kept comparing things there to things in Manehatten.

Unless the spool of thread IS the key! *Dun-dun-dunnnn*

Also, this is pretty much the best episode of the season for me, bar the pilots. It's been too long since we've had a Rarity episode and this goes to show how well they do them, especially the dynamic way Tabitha St. Germain gives best unicorn's voice life! Simply fabulous! It was also a good moral about how, while one's generosity can be taken advantage of and used to hurt you, it's still better to give someone the benefit of the doubt in the long run. Or, at least, that's what it came off as to me.

Finally found the time to watch this episode.

What I liked

  • Rainbow Dash's setup for Rarity's song and the song itself.
  • One key down
  • the perfectly cued rain
  • That they didn't actually abandon Rarity and head for the train station, which is what normally happens in this situation in other shows.

What I didn't like

  • Twilight forgetting she can teleport.
  • the cab line not respecting the multi-time saviors of the country and one of the six known royals.

Nice to see Rarity get an episode and that we finally (maybe) have one of the keys in the form of the rainbow thread.

IMO S4 Episode Ranking
1. PTS pt1
2. Power Ponies
3. Daring Don't
4. PTS pt2
5. Rarity Takes Manehattan
6. Bats!
7. Castle Man-ia
8. Flight to the Finish
