So I'm sure y'all heard the news! During the Toy Fair, there was a sneak peek sketch of episode 13 of season 7, and Meghan was also there revealing some news for season 7! 

 

That news is Rainbow Dash's parents, and APPLEJACK'S PARENTS! :D Yes, they're all going to appear in season 7! AJ's parents are going to appear in a flashback scene! AJ's mom was singing a Romeo and Juliet-kind of song!

 

Proof of all this, right here: https://www.equestriadaily.com/2017/02/major-season-7-pony-parent-news.html

 

This is pretty exiciting news! We're gonna see the rest of the Mane Six's parents! :D Now all there's left is Spike's and Scootaloo's! :3 Perhaps this season we might see them too, and Meghan just didn't wanna mention it, but we'll see! There's still season 8 if they don't show up!

Awesome! I really want to see Celestia and Luna's parents along with them!

It only took 7 freaking years, but late is better than never, I suppose.

I am really interested in Applejack's parents in particular, and hopefully this can give Applejack some much needed character development in how she has managed to deal with the loss of her parents from a young age.

Plus with the last of the mane 6 finally getting their families revealed, especially seeing how we were really speculating what they were like, maybe, just maybe we can finally see Scootaloo's parents.

About. Damn. Time. AJ's parents actually being acknowledged is a surprise to me as I really thought they would actively avoid it. Happy they aren't. Of course seeing somehow about Rainbow's parents is awesome as well. At this point I am more interested in them.

I'm looking forward to getting a little more background to the events surrounding the protagonists that we know and love.

 

Particuarly looking forward to seeing Rainbow Dash's parents, since I want to see if her "awesome" personality is due to her genetics and upbringing, or a trait that has been developed uniquely by her at some point in her life.

Not liking RD's parents names :/

Happy we're getting to see them, but still wish rainbow blaze was her dad.

AJ's parents sound likes going to be an ultra stereotyped romeo and juliet plot: Pears and Apples hating each other, just like the jokes in the fandom about how AJ hates pears due to being an apple.

Probably not going to result in everyone dying. PROBABLY.

This sounds neat... so far lots of information they are leaking that should please a lot of fans. First the possibility the Celestia might get some love, and now some extended family stuff so many have been asking for.

 

People have been crapping all over the show the last two seasons and writing it off, and they very well may be hitting their biggest stride yet if they keep this up.

I honestly was starting to think they wouldn't show either, especially Applejack's parents. I am also really excited to soo Dashy's parents too!

 

I love seeing the Mane Six's parents. We haven't seen much of them.

 

I am curious how they will handle AJ's though, since it is implied they have died. Perhaps they may choose not to mention it, or maybe they will actually hint what happened. I really cannot wait! :wub::orly::pinkie::yay: :crackle:

Apple family parents...they better not mess it up...but those names though. Would have been no worse off hiring a random fan to do it.

 

Rainbow's parents...don't really care. If they do it right, that's fine of course.

They should throw in the Doctor in that episode just for a quick inside gag. Bonus points if he actually says he can't stand pears.

 

 


 

This is the first Pony spoiler that I'm not fond of. If the whole episode is in a flashback, great. If not, they had better have a damn good reason why the Apple Parents abandoned their kids in a show focused around friendship and family. This makes Max and Ruby's parents look like the Brady's. :/

Maybe the setup for the episode with AJ's parents is Apple Bloom seeing a picture of her parents for the first time, noticing Pear Butter's cutie mark and asking Granny how they got together.

There's no way they can actually pull AJ's parents being alive without making them look like the worst parents in the world. Here's hoping they stay dead. At least well finally get to see them

 

As for RD's parents, there's no way they made the name "Bow Hot Hoof" with a straight face and actually expect people to take it seriously. I feel like, whomever that is, I feel like we're expected to feel indifferent

   Uhm... "flashback?" As in, retroactively? As in, still no confirmation as to whether they are currently alive? Well, that does seem to be the easiest route to take this, just talk about how they were not what & where they are now.

 

  Also, Bow Hothoof is so flippin' BOSS! I swear, if that turns out to actually be her mother's name, i'm gonna lose it! Here's hoping they incorporate Faust's original designs like they did with Twilight's Mom!

That's kind of my reaction to the whole thing. I'm not wild about the names for RD's parents, though I don't mind one of them, and I'm worried about the Apples devolving in to a giant plot cliche. That being said, it'll be interesting to see how they're worked into the show.

I don't mind Windy Whistles. I actually think it's a cute name, and feels like a callback to another G1 pony, Wind Whistler

 

Bow Hot Hoof...I really think they were drunk when they made that

Dunno why everyone makes seeing the parents a big hullabaloo. They don't even get enough screentime to get lines, most the time, let along character development

Usually when they bring up family member names, that usually means they're important in some way. Shining Armor, Zephyr Breeze, Maud, hell, the entire Pie Family at one point

 

I'm certain their parents will be important at some point in S7

I've never considered this before, but if after 7 seasons, they make it so AJ's parents were alive the whole time, I might have to stop watching this show.

Hey, it only took 7 years to get an appearance from AJ's parents.

 

Casually side-stepping the other major question about their current presence, but you know, at least acknowledgement that they existed in a past flashback. At least that's something. Looking forward to seeing how Aj's parents were after all these years.

 

On the other hoof, it feels like we got to see Dash's parents a lot more quicker. Hey, that will actually round up showing all of the mane 6's families at least once.... and no origin story for Spike
