I loved this Episode ! I loved the setting, the new Characters, how the Episode played out and of course i like Coco Pommel, the newest Addition of the good Main Cast. Or at least an addition to the team.

I always wonder if Suri really had won and then been asked for more clothing with that amazing fabric where did she expect to get more of it considering she tricked the inventor into giving what she'd already used?

There are some serious pacing problems that keep me from enjoying this episode. The episode doesn't really start until 5 minutes in. All that's before that is exposition and a pointless song that hammers into your head how generous Rarity is. Because of this, a lot of things feel rushed. The first act goes into the second act to make up for lost time which then effects how much time the third has to play out. When Rarity goes crazy in her hotel room, the story is only given 6 minutes to play out because the first 5 minutes were wasted on the song. Other things also feel underdeveloped too like everything about Coco Pommel's character. I like what the episode was trying to do, but I don't it was handled well.

Score: 4/10

This is the sort of plot I don’t normally like, but I did.

Suri is basically done for if she doesn’t change. She’s not famous enough to get away with what she’s doing. While Rarity would not complain, others would. Others are going to quickly see a pattern with her. I wonder though, does she have any talent in this? She took Rarity’s work and had Coco do the sewing. I think she needs to find another line of work.

I was thinking the exact same thing really. She can't duplicate the fabric and Rarity got the only knolauge of it so yeah Suri would be so busted

I related to this episode pretty hard. My thoughts:

-There's such a deep guttural feeling of anger and hatred when someone steals your ideas and claims them as your own. 

-Rarity feels bad for taking her friends for granted and working them all night. She's way too hard on herself. I mean, no one is perfect. Even if she's the spirit of Generosity, she can't exude it 100% of the time.

-I love the setting of Manehatten. 

-Rarity's "Hotel Chic" was cringey and ugly. That lampshade hat.......

I wanted to "LOVE" this episode, but honestly, I hate Suri Polomare SO MUCH, it brings my rating down to a "like" status. That character just hits too close to home.

One of the best episodes until now! I loved the story, the moral, and the music. The music Rarity sings after losing the mane 6 was really sad, and touching. Seeing moments of friendship and joy from the mane 6 was really wonderful.

Another bad episode. The pacing kills the episode since the entire first half is set up. This makes the entire thing rushed with no time to linger on any emotional moments, just like Flight to the Finish. But unlike Flight to the Finish, the conflict here isn't interesting. The conflict feels like an outline for something more interesting.

There are less than two minutes spent in the sweatshop portion meaning there can't be any transition from Rarity treating the rest of the mane six fairly and becoming jaded. And there's no time after that for an internal conflict of getting praised for her outfits made through her "everyone for themselves" attitude vs losing her friends, so she immediately becomes guilty and the episode pulls the Magical Mystery Cure approach for sad scenes, that being having a song telling the audience that the situation is sad instead of showing Rarity trying to talk to her friends and them not talking to her. And of course the rest of the mane six forgive Rarity immediately because there's not time for any kind of internal conflict with them. And the episode tries to shove in Coco Pommel for no reason and that's even more underdeveloped than the rest of the episode. All of this combines to make a story that feels so underdeveloped and unfinished. 

It's not like there are other aspects to bring the episode up anyways. This season has has pretty weak comedy in every episode except Castle-Mania and this episode is no exception, except this time Spikeabuse is added. Nice.

In the end, this episode sucks. Too much time is spent setting up the story making it shallow and ultimately meaningless. 

Score: 1/10
