Season 8 Episodes 20 Discussion Thread Marimo!!SpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829197

This thread is meant for discussing impressions on this week's episode, The Washouts, during and after it airs.

Be mindful of saying spoilers before they show up on TV.

Great animation. ( Loved the finger quotes with the wing feathers.) Like a lot of the early show episodes, it had a lot of little extras in it -- superfluities that made the visual story richer than the script.

Great visual as said.

Love the uniforms. Green and black > the wonderbolts colors.

Yeah, Dash can't force Scootaloo to do anything. So why didn't she run and get Scoots' legal guardians (her aunties) to intervene?

Back in season 1, wasn't Dash constantly practicing and performing daring stunts and wild maneuvers to impress the Wonderbolts? When did she move completely away from stunts and just become a racer/acrobat?

I guess since the Wonderbolts told her to stop being a show off and be a team player.

That was a pretty great episode. I wonder if Spitfire's speech was a reference to anything in particular.

Not sure if I should take the bait lol

When the Washouts were explaining their "origins", did anyone else find themselves asking if Lightning was ever even a member? Does being in the academy automatically make you a cadet? Or were they just using the idea of "kicked out of the Wonderbolts" as an audacity stunt despite never making it to the front door?

You know, if you're not from an English speaking country, chances to recognize such references are very low simply because shows usually get dubbed. =P

>>36829215
I guess having officially worn any sort of Wonderbolt uniforn was enough to be a washout.

I have to admit, I was confused at first until she kept it up and I realized what was going on :p

>>36829200
Scoots expression when she blurted out "I CAN'T FLY" was one of the high points of the episode.

its a single line, but it manages to convey alot of emotion and neatly aknowledge that the fact that she can't fly is basically an accepted disability at this point.

>>36829197
9/10, love it.
Great to see an antagonist STAY AN ANTAGONIST for once ("Rival for life" reminded me of vegeta saying Regenade for life), and I felt they did it well: Dust isn't bitter and is happy with her lot, and she's not out for revenge, but she's STILL basically a sociopath that's completely self absorbed.
She won't actively seek out to cause issues, but hell, she won't work against it either.

Strictly speaking, that in itself is a parody of a series of "scared straight" programs set up between public schools and law enforcement officials to show kids the frightening (and often exaggerated) consequences of drug use and reckless behavior. You can tell Spitfire has spent a lot of time doing DARE lectures.

Heh, if Rainbow had joined the Washouts as a stunt professional, they could have called her Mad Dash.

Lightning Dust'll be fine, she's in no danger. Well, maybe a little. She just needs to calm down, untangle her hoof, and she can fly to the ground, unlike Scootaloo who could've fallen to her death because she can't fly.

Wait...

Did Lightning Dust know that Scootaloo can't fly?

>>36829438
I'm pretty sure she knew; she even let Scootaloo sit on her back as she flew her up the hill.

Yeah, but Scootaloo like just finally admitted to Rainbow Dash that she can't fly. Why wouldn't she refrain from telling Lightning Dust just out of force of habit, because Scootaloo's so used to hiding that part about herself, and kind of ashamed of it? Why wouldn't Lightning Dust assume Scootaloo could fly like every pegasus foal her age, and just wasn't good at it the way she was at scootering?

I think when Lightning Dust admitted it was a little dangerous, she might really have meant it was only a little dangerous.

>>36829444
Dash - and likely many others - knew she couldn't fly. Dash herself once said "maybe you'll fly one day or maybe you won't... you're all kinds of awesome anyway".

I think Scoots has no issues telling ponies she couldn't fly. She snapped at Rainbow Dash cause Dash in her ignorance kept pushing her own flying abilities as what's special and awesome, ignoring how that must have felt to Scootaloo. At least that's how I understand their conversation and Dash's apology near the end.

Well, whatever. It's pretty damn likely that Lightning Dust did know. It would've been amazing if she didn't, though.

I mean, ponies falling out of the sky isn't uncommon or anything. There are plenty of flying ponies who could catch her.
