[SPOILER] Episode Discussion: MLP S4E11 - Three's a crowd

Post by Star Shard on Sat Jan 25, 2014 11:55 am

To celebrate the return of the Chaos king. (Even do he was mostly an pain near the tail.) I created the thread today.

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.

I still haven't seen last weeks episode but based on the main plot (one sick character being as big of a pain as they can to another) I think this would have worked better as a Rarity/Sweetie episode. With Sweetie getting sick while staying with Rarity and spending the episode giving Rarity increasingly more insane demands as her new found power over her sister goes to her head. It is a done to death scenario but i think it would have fit.

I dont know. This story would have gone a lot different if it weren't about a near omnipotent being.

I was working with what I knew about it (I still haven't watched the episode).

That was great. I knew the Breezies were in Equestria! Discord's song was pretty cool too. I don't think he's ever sung before, and the song fit him pretty well. I'm also glad to see that EQG was subtly proven to be canon, Flash Sentry showed up, although he was never named. I'm just glad that it's been cleared up once and for all that it did happen, even though it doesn't really affect the show.

This entire episode was worth it just for Discord's song. Don't get me wrong, the entire episode was gold, but that song was the best part of it.

I'm not exactly sure of my opinion on the episode. For some weird reason, it was difficult to watch the part with Discord's "cold" infecting AJ and Rarity (don't ask me why - it just felt kind of weird), but it was an overall pretty good episode. I do have a list of episodes from good to bad, and this was pretty high up.

Hey, they actually gave Cadence some characterization this week! And while the Mane 6 were in it, they easily got rid of them... though I take issue with Pinkie gaining Attention Deficit-Ooh, Shiny! (Or rather balloons in this case) In case you missed the former, Cadence likes to have some adventure and excitement in her life rather than sitting around and have everything run perfect. On a more subtle note, she can find the positives in a situation, even if things do go to plan. Oh, and perhaps she's a bit of a nerd.

At least this all explains why she was "the best foalsitter ever" in my opinion.

Discord was just plain fabulous since, unlike last time, he was an -snip!- for the sake of revenge (by hoping to drive Twilight and Cadence apart with his fake illness) but got bit in the rear by karma in the form of that Tatzlwurm. Very good episode on first impressions. =D

BREEZIES? TAKE COVER, G3 IS INVADING! Also in the episode forecast: Justin Beiber as a guest star in episode 16. And now for the serious review.


I liked this episode, but it wasn't as good to me as 'Bats!' or 'Suited for Success', which are both really good episodes. It's certainly higher than 'Spike At Your Service' and 'Just for Sidekicks', which bore me to death. Ironically, they're both Spike episodes. I loved that Cadence actually has some character now, but Shining Armor is still the least characterized of the two. When will he get to play a major role in an episode and finally earn some characterization? Anyway, Discord was even more of a total jerk than usual, or maybe that's just me getting too critical. AND FOR GOODNESS' SAKE, WRITERS, STOP WRITING PINKIE LIKE AN IDIOT WITH A SEVERE CASE OF ADHD. IT OFFENDS ME. I AM DISAPPOINT. That is all.

What I liked:

  • The Health Bubble Shield
  • References sprinkled throughout.
  • Rainbow nopeing out of the episode.
  • Discord actually getting sick at the end.
  • Fluttershy&Discord's correspondence
  • Rarity, AJ, and Pinkie trying to hold Discord and appease him only to be given the fake illness themselves(Rarity&AJ) and distracted while he got away(Pinkie Pie).

What I didn't like

  • Pinkie being distracted by balloons.
  • Rainbow nopeing out of the episode. She just got the key of loyalty and follows that up by basically running away from a promise.(although given how the other three were treated she wouldn't have stood much of a shot anyway)
  • Discord even bothering with the others when Cadence and Twilight were his target to begin with.

I like the episode and I liked the pay off. That is really all I can say
IMO S4 Episode Ranking
1. PTS pt1
2. Power Ponies
3. Daring Don't
4. PTS pt2
5. Rarity Takes Manehattan
6. Bats!
7. Three's a Crowd
8. Pinky Apple Pie
9. Castle Man-ia
10. Rainbow Falls
11. Flight to the Finish
