Season 9 Episode 9 Discussion Thread Marimo!!SpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830396

This thread is meant for discussing impressions on the episode Sweet and Smokey during and after it airs.

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

Personally I hate this shows dragons because they're all (other than Spike) obnoxious 70 IQ tier assholes, so I'm a bit biased. But even if I was to look past that this episode is a 4/10, at best. It was overall boring, predictable, and massively underwhelming. Other than handful of forced innuendos there was nothing enjoyable about this episode.

Maybe if some of the characters had been more fleshed out or just generally likeable this wouldn't have been as bad. But considering the fact that most of these characters have had well under an hour of total screen time, (and they're throw away characters with no personality) I just can't care about them. They should have done a similar episode with more well known characters that people actually care about.

The lesson wasn't compelling not only because it felt entirely forced onto Garble, but because I find it hard to relate to or care about a character that's whole personality up until now has been "dude bro" and nothing more, other than maybe some stereotypical feral 70 IQ tier thug.

Why would anyone care about Garble's honesty amateur "poetry" when up until now he's done nothing but be an asshole?

2/10.

In NJ right now for a Renaissance Faire, so I missed the episode. Half way through right now and it’s CLEAR AS DAY the eggs are cold and the dragon douches are going to be conscripted to tossing lava on them. It’s no coincidence they’re talking up lava this much.

Meh. Close enough.

7/10

Quite enjoyable, mostly because of Fluttershy. The other dragons being eager to learn poetry at the end seemed a bit forced (though maybe it was Ember's command that forced them in a way).

Well thanks for shoe-horning that in, absolutely uncalled for. I liked the rough idea, but they just didn't have the material to make it work, instead mashed something together. Dragon land episodes show a downward trend.

Upsides: Fluttershy was great in her B role, was peak adorable, Ember blushing about laying eggs was cute too, HATCHLING DRAGONS

Except Smolder and Ember, but that's still just 3 out of all.
>It was overall boring, predictable, and massively underwhelming.
Maybe Smolder and Spike being more than one-dimensional retards in their approach could have saved it.

I still wish we got some goddamn dragon adults.

Unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830406

Literally the worst episode this season, and given we've gotten some shitty episodes already (She's all yak), that's not good.
Garble has been an asshole since he was introduced, and him having a poetry quirk doesn't make me like him anymore. It just means he's an asshole with an interest besides being a douche. Garble is LITERALLY less likeable than Zephyr, and that's pretty fucking bad.

The entire episode was just pure cringe (as cliche as that term is), and the plot was shitty and one dimensional. The only upsides was fluttershy's VA doing a good job, and Ember getting pissed being enjoyable.

Past that, seriously terrible episode. 1.5/10.
Also, just gotta comment:
>Do you know how fragile eggs are?!
>Proceeds to flamethrower eggs with reckless abandon
Umm... I guess they're only fragile to physical force? Alright. Still feels off.

Dragons are immune to lava, so the eggs probably should be fireproof. I think in the Harry Potter series it was even said that their dragons used their fire breath to keep their eggs warm.

Yeah, but the firebreath will still probably have a physical force component due to how Convection and air pressure works. Like spike still got hurt jumping into lava from the physical aspect of it even if he could handle the fire part outright.

Would it be unreasonable to just, you know, fill the little eggbeds with lava?

I think so, after all the eggs were also too fragile to just carry a bit. Otherwise they would have just put them into lava in the first place.

Then bringing the lava to the eggs would solve the issue, right? Man, who even laid all those eggs? Shouldn't they be around?

Probably, though I think the shells might have been too fragile for direct contact (at least over a long period). Thus the need for the underground stream to heat the ground for the eggs.

Maybe the adult dragons we haven't seen since season 2 or something.

OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830418

>>36830417
That's seriously bizarre to me. Since season 5 they've just wanted to purely focus on the dragon teens I guess? And kinda just ignore the fact that there are adults in their society? Even though Torch exists I guess other adults don't? And now they're sticking to their guns and making sure dragon adults are completely unmentioned despite dragon babies being laid and born? And also Sludge is a thing I guess, but isn't the size of an adult dragon so might just be a teenager pretending to be an old guy?
