Season 1: Really hard to pick. Maybe Over a Barrel?

Season 2: Had the two best of the series, but I'll go with It's About Time.

Season 3: At only 8/10, Keep Calm and Flutter On.

Season 4: And at only 7.5/10, Rarity Takes Manehattan.

Season 1: Party of One - My rewatch of this is how Pinkie Pie helped make herself known on my favorite characters per show list. As someone who frequently feels insecure about how my friends feel about me, Pinkie's dilemma is one I find very relatable. Pinkie just likes having fun with her friends, and that is something I can feel a personal connection with.

Season 2: Family Appreciation Day - Normally I'm a huge fan of Spike, but this episode scraped above Dragon Quest for me for its expansion on characters we didn't normally think about beforehand and a look into the show's lore in a fun and interesting way. Granny Smith is fun to follow throughout, Applebloom's dilemma is believable, the Timberwolves are really cool and the Ponyville backstory scene was generally an amazing moment.

Season 3: The Crystal Empire - I LOVE the introduction of the titular kingdom here, the sense of terror throughout as Sombra appproaches it, and the reflection on Spike's character throughout. I'm a huge fan of Spike here given my childhood worship of dragons and the overall intensity of Twilight sending him to help save the empire. It's also a shining moment for Cadence, showing what she'll do to help the many, and she easily earned her place on the Crystal Empire throne.

Season 4: Power Ponies - Could it be more obvious coming from me? :-P

Season 5: The Hooffields and McColts - This episode can be the one you thank/blame for Fluttershy becoming my favorite character for a loooooooooong time. In addition to a hilarious conflict between the titular families, Fluttershy proves herself a very intelligent pony when the situation calls for it. She saw the smaller details Twilight didn't and was able to figure out what had happened in the past, and what needed to be done.

Season 6: The Gift of the Maud Pie - This is my favorite episode focusing on the dynamic Pie sibling duo. I really like seeing them together...pretty much all the time, but this is my favorite example of the bond they share. Maud was willing to give up something she always wanted for Pinkie, and you really feel for Pinkie's dilemma and despair. Plus Rarity proved to be a perceptive and very empathetic friend, even if she and Pinkie have their differences.

Season 7: A Health of Information - More badass proactive Fluttershy please! This episode proved how much Fluts has truly grown since the days of "scared of her own shadow-Shy". When Zecora gets Swamp Fever, Fluttershy IMMEDIATELY takes it upon herself to get off her haunches and do something about it. She doesn't want Zecora to die and is willing to brave her fears to save her. The lesson about not pushing yourself too hard is also very well-done...as someone who needs to get more sleep herself :muffins:

Season 8: School Raze - Cozy Glow is currently my favorite villain in the show. (Oops, call me Zecora because that rhymed, lol.) She's my favorite kind of villain - a villain who, while not having any innate insane powers like Chrysalis and Tirek do, is INCREDIBLY intelligent and devious, and that's how she winds up almost able to drain all the magic from Equestria AND become Empress of Friendship (that's a badass name btw). Not to mention I really like the Student Six so getting to see so much of them in action is a big plus for me. (Molt Down was VERY close here, tho)

Season 9: The Big Mac Question - Now HERE'S an episode that is just plain fun. The Big Mac+Spike+Discord trio is at its best, being super fun to see in action as Big Mac's plan to propose unfolds. Discord's usual chaotic-ness is a lol-fest, Spike is his usual likable self, and you really feel for Big Mac's desires. It was a great note for the usual slice-of-life stuff to go out on.

I need to rewatch the later seasons. :twismile:
