I’m kinda hoping that this will be Applejack’s last important episode EVER, since she’s interacted with every Mane Six pony at least twice, and she doesn’t really have a goal to achieve, like Pinkie.

When we get to Season 8, her screen time is expected to continue to shrink.

This is suppose to be the episode where William Shatner(Captain Kirk of Star Trek fame) and Felicity Day(Producer of the Guild) guest star.

 

And yes, I have met William Shatner in person.  In fact, as of now, he is the only guest star I met in person.

I have been anxiously awaiting to see what AppleJack's parents look like. I am very excited to see this episode and I hope that we get some more insight on how else the two impacted her and AppleBloom's life (assuming AppleBloom wasn't an infant when they passed away and she cannot recall). I know that the chances of the writers exploring their death is...little to none but I am still curious as to how it is they passed.

That was a beautiful episode

Only real problem I see people having was them not telling us how they passed, but I guess it couldn't really be avoided, but the episode more or less confirmed their fates

Also really nice how we got surprising bits of growth from Mrs Cake and Mayor Mare as well

It was a really cute and emotional episode. I really enjoyed it and it explains why we havent seen Applejack's parents in the show prior to this episode :catface:

Besides "All Bottled Up" and "Rock Solid Friendship", this would have to my favourite episode of the season :lol:

Besides that, we still dont know where Bright Mac and Pear Butter are :o

(...or if they will make another appearance in a future episode...)

Mrs. Cake's full name is Cup Cake, Chiffon Swirl was her birth given name. MLP canonized legal name changes, which explains a lot of Equestria's weirdest names.

 

But on to the episode, it was personally my favorite in the entire series. So little margin for error, and they nailed it perfectly. Basically confirming their deaths without treading into risky territory at all. Loads of questions answered, beautiful music as always, a great ending. The episode managed to create such an amazing feeling of connection to the characters. They pulled the whole show closer together. The writing isn't better than most mlp episodes, it's better than most episodes of all my favorite shows.

 

The name-changing was a nice development I think. DJ-Pon3's name makes more sense now. More importantly, I think this episode has shown more of a commitment to consistent and quality backstory. Hopefully they keep this trend of consistency going, it'll definitely do wonders for the fan-fiction and headcanons which are such a huge part of the fandom.

It is going to be a bit before I can compose the words that I want to say for this episode. This was ... more personal than we expected. Three sets of eyes were ... liquid pride runneth over. The voice work and animation in this, the deft dialog, choices that make the town feel even more connected and alive. That tree. That song. The fact that she told him first. And Bright Mac and Pear Butter ... holy shit. 

This isn't a 5/5 ... this may be my favorite episode period. 

Good job DHX. The wait was worth it. Thank you!

They are unfortunately deceased. Every mention of their name was in past tense, and the "Tree to remember them by.", quote was placed at the end for a reason. It the final confirmation to the fans that they are no longer alive, but their memory lives on.

But the thing I don’t get is, Granny Smith and Grand Pear are A LOT older than Bright Mac and Pear Butter. How did they out-lived them? :o

There's tons of ways someone can die early dude.

 

 

Anyway here's to you Bright Mac and Pear Butter, Rest Forever here in our hearts.
