Season 9 Episode 21 Discussion Thread Marimo!!SpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830922

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

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

Daring Doubt has to be the single worst episode of the season. How do I begin the reasons why?

Let's start with the writer. Nicole Dubuc wrote 11 episodes of this season, most of which were duds. Sadly we get one last episode from her in a few weeks.

It's as if she knows little about the character development of the three key characters for this episode. The plot turns one major heroic character into the opposite of what the other writers created long before Dubuc wrote this train wreck. Shameful in every sense of the word. It's as if Hasbro wanted this season to collapse.

I'm sorry I sat on this review as long as I did. It wasn't easy to keep this away from those who disapprove of spoilers. Season 9 will go down as the worst of the series.

Decent episode, IMO one of the better Daring Do ones.

So uh... Daring-Do is just out of two jobs now? She isn't adventuring in the jungle anymore, and she doesn't have any villains to protagonize in her novels.

At least she's not adventuring in that particular jungle anymore.

I never would have expected a Daring Fo episode to be one of the best of the last couple seasons. Very well done. 9/10.

Why would Caballeron think that the talisman would be worth more melted down?

I think because its magical qualities are more of a curse than an enchantment...

I dunno -- I can think of a lot of uses for an infallible truth-telling necklace.

Also: who is this pink-haired yellow Pegasus with butterflies on her butt who is eager for a dangerous adventure? We haven't seen her before...

We must have watched two different episodes.

I was with this episode until the end, when they also decided to make Ahuizotl a misunderstood guardian. I could almost accept it, since all his other appearances were just being mentioned in books and so he could've just seemed more villainous due to AK Yearling's narration except for Daring Don't where he appears in person and flat out declares how he was going to use a ring specifically to perform a ceremony to "unleash eight hundred years of unrelenting, sweltering heat" on the valley the episode took place in.

At that point, you either got to address the elephant in the room and somehow explain that away that still fits with the whole guardian thing, or you show that the moral doesn't apply to every situation. That while Fluttershy may have a point in which some people do have their sides, like maybe Daring Do was wrong for taking artifacts to mostly just collect dust in her own home, some people just act in ways that aren't acceptable and can't just be explained away with their side of the story.

800 years of heat means no one can enter said valley to steal artefacts. Problem solved.

800 years of unrelenting, sweltering heat is going to do a lot of damage to the ecosystem.

And they don't even give a reason in the episode for why he did it, or even bring it up despite all the other Daring Do episodes they reference. That should not be on the viewers to come up with an answer for the writers.

They literally bring up that specific episode in this one too, with the shiny gold ring and all.
