054 - Bullies

Why does life have to be so ironic?!
--
Today's pony comic recomendation is Friendship is Tragic, made by T-Brony.
Instead of using the Mane 6, Derpy, Bon Bon or Lyra, he gets some of the less popular background ponies, and gives them a chance to star their own comic strips. With great results! 8D

I wonder if we will ever get a Gilda episode? I think it would be interesting!

@SwanDive: Creators hinted she and Trixie will be around for season 3. Trixie's episode will be next week.

Es como en Ponyville Confidential, que yo decía que le iban a hacer algo a DT, y poner en la carta "Porque todos la odiamos, hasta tú"
Y Celestia respondería "Sí"

I still would have preferred that they took a different approach and tried to teach that bullies and jerks are a part of life.

My bet is Gilda is going to make an appearance (most likely via flashback) in the Wonderbolts Academy episode.

I wonder if Rainbow Dash and Gilda will reconcile in a future episode?

Well, doesn't that kind of throw mud on the lesson?

I thought the lesson was: If ever you are bullied, tell someone with greater power than the bully. If that doesn't work, cut their brake lines, so if you decide to save them, they'll be your friends forever.

I actually saw a parody of some sort with the scene where Babs Seed makes that " STARE" at DT and SS, only the normal soundclip was replaced with the infamous: But, there is one they fear. In their tongue, he is Dovahkiin. Dragonborn. FUS RO DAH!!!
2012-11-26 08:31:38
Yeah, that episode's lesson confused me. So it's okay to be a bully if you have problems? What the hell?

I think the lesson here is that bullies that were bullied at an unspecified point in time are not doing that because they are evil, but because they have an inferiority complex and want to feel powerful.

From my life I know that all of the bullies i met and I met tons of them they all were simply jerks bullying others just for their fun and amusement. Some of them had rich parents, some were well educated some were from pathological families - this doesn't matter.

@the amazing Irrespondible WHAT?!?!?! GILDA?! TRIXIE?! SEASON 3?!?!?!

Oh, this is another episode where Applejack is a background pony. 8D

Also, aren't some people overthinking about the take on bullying? They can't depict that much in a kids show and also gave Babs a second chance. She isn't the next Diamond Tiara, Gilda or Trixie, fortunatelly. :P

I love their faces in the last panel.

In this episode I thought they were making a bomb :)

@Minecat

Yup, pretty much they were stated to appear on a interview the writers gave in Comic Con last time.

Trixie already showed up on the past episode and it was AWESOME! I bet Gilda will be in Wonderbolt Academy, as it's a RD-centric episode.

The Silent Protagonist
To be fair, at least Babs had genuine, sympathetic reasons to start bullying the CMCs. Diamond Tiara and Sliver Spoon don't have a reason to bully them. They're just spoiled little (female dogs).

Besides, who would want to be friends with them anyway?

Its funny cause at the end of this episode my first thought was "so as long as the bullies are family they can have redemption" :/

I actually PITY Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. They aren't ALLOWED to have character development. So because they have to stay static so the episodes can run in any order, the show is reduced to double-standards like this.

Reforming bullies have nothing to do with reality. That's what I want, nothing to do with reality!

Chariots chariots. Me and Greg here have to use this stupid code word for impostors and bullies. So you're blessed to not be me, ponies.
