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.

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.
