Note #1: This is one of the episodes leaked near the end of 2017. If you watched the episode already, keep all discussion under the spoiler tag until after it finishes officially airing. (Hit the eye icon to trigger it and type within it.) DO NOT LINK OR POST THE LEAKED MATERIAL!

Note #2: Over the last few months, some content originally leaked (e.g., the Student Six's names, episode titles, some summaries) have been officially revealed, and chances are more will, too. But as always, please keep all leaked content not officially revealed yet — and/or if you're unsure if you're revealing too much — under the "spoiler" tag.


Title: Molt Down

Air Date (U.S./Disc. Family): May 26th, 11:30am EST

Writer(s): Josh Haber

Summary: Spike struggles with a series of Bizarre symptoms that Smolder explains is something all dragons go through in adolescence-- "the molt." To Spike's horror, Smolder also reveals an unfortunate "molt side-effect," that compels a molter's family to kick them out of the house!

I know it's well over a month before the official airing, but I'm so excited for this one. I will say the leaked version 

Spoiler

Had no music, so it will be nice to hear the audio in full.

Can't wait to see the final version of this episode as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between Spike and Smolder. I only watched it once to keep it as fresh as it can possibly be when it officially airs. So just like with episode 10, I'm a little hazy on all of the details now.

The real payoff for this episode (not that I wasn't giddy by the end of this one, mind you :D ) will be how the circumstances surrounding the events of this episode affect the rest of the G4 series moving forward. Things will be different, that's for sure - though if season 4 was any indicator, maybe not all that different. :twi:

Last year I was so hyped for Gauntlet of Fire as I thought Spike would get wings there.

Huh..... 

Spoiler

Smolder says that dragons are kicked out once they molt and gain wings. This is despite the fact that Ember, whom Smolder KNOWS is personal friends with Spike, has been shown to have lived with her father at least up until becoming Dragon Lord herself, despite having wings since before her debut episode. Kinda punches holes in her story.

My thinking is after the molt goes through it's run and the dragon gets their wings, the kid has the option of moving back in instead of starting a hoard.

That is probably a rare occurrence due to the nature of dragons. Also there may be special circumstances with Ember since she was essentially a princess.

Maybe Smolder is just messing with Spike. I mean, it's not like gaining wings makes a dragon more aggressive like that war-hangry Garble! Maybe it makes them stinky and very unappealing to ponies like Rarity.

Let's wait until AFTER the episode. You'll likely get your answer then.

Spoiler

As of this episode, Spike is no longer a wingless dragon (the only wingless dragon seen thus far) and is also no longer the only friendly dragon in the series.
