*insert a Fluttershy "Yay" here*

 

I was hoping she'd get a 2nd episode, seeing how the rest of the 6 have at least gotten 2 episodes each to far.

This episode shall premiere on my birthday. A Fluttershy episode is a nice present.

 

In particular I like that she'll be involved in weather duties. Prior to now we've seen absolutely zero sign of her being involved in the weather at all. It's good to see she does have the ability to manipulate weather like the other Pegasi.

Hopefully now that we are all evened out, we can have adventures focused on the entire Mane 6 now!

It's about time already! I was wondering when we would get a few Fluttershy episodes this season. Better late than never.

 

I hope that this episode takes us back to the Cloudsdale "weather factory" again. I don't think we've seen that place since the Sonic Rainboom episode. Which is a real shame because it's such an awesome location.

 

Besides, controlling the weather is a key part of day to day life in Equestria. It's about time we were able to take a better look at it.

 

Hmmm, there is one thing though. I guess this means that the more assertive Fluttershy from the immediately upcoming episode will only be a temporary thing. I suppose it can't be helped...

Examining this episode's premise more closely, I'm a little confused by it. Why precisely is Fluttershy suddenly asked to aid the other Pegasi with the weather, when up until now we've never even seen her do so much as move a cloud, let alone all the complex feats that are involved in typical weather work.

 

One thing I've always wondered about is how much natural rainstorm production there is in Equestria versus artificial production via weather factories in cities like Cloudsdale. The events of Family Appreciation Day suggest in part that plenty of rainstorms form over wild, uncontrolled areas such as the Everfree Forest that then drift over Equestrian territory, leaving the weather a bit less scheduled than has previously been assumed. Of course that opens up a new question: are these natural rainstorms controllable once they enter Equestrian territory, or do they remain wild, still affected by whatever magics prevent Pegasi from controlling the weather that forms in places like the Everfree Forest?

 

The title of the episode suggests that there may be an enormous storm involved. Basically, a hurricane forms somewhere off the coast of Equestria, a true monster that requires every Pegasi available to participate and help control if they're to prevent it from destroying towns and cities along the coast. Something like that would involve a LOT of action and drama, which would be quite exciting.

 

And yet I'm not confident that's what will happen. The way the episode descriptive blurb is written, it seems more likely that we're looking at a smaller pattern of storms, like a seasonal monsoon that intensified to greater than normal in the area near Ponyville, which would still need plenty of Pegasi involved but that wouldn't quite be at the level of a massive hurricane. It would still involve higher than normal amounts of action and drama though.

 

This episode has a lot of promise. Fluttershy hasn't been getting the attention she needed to get this whole season, and now that she is I'm hoping she once again proves that she is capable of extraordinary feats when she's given the chance.

hmm, thisone sounds interesting for sure, but i don't think that assertive fluttershy is going to be missing, i think it is more likely to be a matter of her poor flying strength and her confidence in regards to weather related work, not an assertiveness issue.

Sounds like a great episode! But... doesn't it sound pretty similar to this week's episode?

No it doesn't. If you recall, she needed to be more assertive. In this episode, she is trying to overcome her shyness to help with the weather.

fix'd :P shyness was overcome by assertiveness, now it's a matter of fear/self confidence, remember in dragonshy she was scared of the heights...

If you are wondering, I believe this is the thingy: Before she has overcome her fear of dragons and learned how she can find strenght in her friends and that she must believe in her own capabilities. Last episode, she overcome her shyness towards other ponies. She learned that she must not let herself be pushed over, that she most think and care more about herself and that she can do that without being a complete jerk.

 

Now she'll probably overcome her fear of heights and hurricanes, the teaching will probably be similar to dragonshy, but it will probably be more like: If you never risk anything and always stay on the safe side, then you'll never win anything either.

 

 

What worries me is the real reason Fluttershy is needed. Even though the weather ponies will probably need all the help they can get, and thus will ask any pegasus to help, I just don't see how Fluttershy could make any difference, unless it involved some sort of weather monster that could be soothed like a wild beast

Actually it wasn't her shyness that she had to overcome in putting your hoof down. Fluttershy wanted to get the things she wanted, but she was too nice about it. Like the cherry scene. She wasn't shy, she was being generous but in the way that hurt her.

Okay guys, here's an extended synopsis of the episode:

 

Fluttershy struggles to overcome her fear of public humiliation so she can help Rainbow Dash and the other pegasi create a tornado powerful enough to lift the water required for rainy season in the cloud-producing city of Cloudsdale.

Oh, so no big natural disaster. Again, there's no way Fluttershy could make a difference here, so I don't expect the episode to be very good.

when lifting large volumes of water, every last bit of power helps, no matter how small. anyhow i think this ep will be more about the character interaction than the forming/use of a tornado to supply cloudsdale with water for the rainy season.
