I was at first expecting it to be an episode where she'd make clones of herself to do everything with everyone, but I'm glad it didn't go that way.

The hypnotism idea and the idea of her being scared of interacting with the other ponies made a lot of sense to me and was actually relatable. While they may have been friendship lessons for her, the other members of the mane six are more like people who have been assigned to be her friend rather than them actually being her friends that she made herself.

Starlight Glimmer wanting to get everything finished faster so she could get out of an awkward/bad feeling situation to her makes sense to me.
They didn't feel good to her, but instead of not doing them or trying to find a way out of them, she tried to rush through them. Bonding and socially interacting takes up a lot of time during such projects, and wanting to cut this part of things out in order to be more efficient is understandable as well.

It was a good lesson for them to have to try to reinforce since she's always been shown to use her magic to get out of any situation that might leave her feeling uncomfortable.

i really liked the starlight glimmer character development in this episode. 

also i stumbled upon this little video that i wanted to share. It's the mane six plus Celestia and Cadence turned Nightmare. And the designs are freaking epic.

So you show us you can make a clone of yourself with magic, but you use mind control on the girls instead? Great idea! Bravo Starlight, bravo.

Moral of the story: Hypnosis doesn't ALWAYS work the way you want it to.

I think I've seen something similar in an old Twilight Zone episode. :P

Bottom line: I LOVED it!

Especially the references to Braveheart and A Tale Of Two Cities by AJ. :)

It was great and enjoyful episode, it felt like it had some traits of Lesson Zero and to me it worked very well for Starlight and all the mess she put herself into - literally and figuratively ^^ Certainly to me it felt like one of better episodes this season :)

First time it occurs for me: I didn't like that episode. Mind control should've hyped me up, but it's just a rehash of Lesson Zero. We've already seen the exact same plot in the past. And yeah, it feels weird to me, cause Hasbro showed us more originality in the other episodes. Plus, they should have explored another city instead of adding another Starlight episode.

I was surprised that nobody mentioned how Starlight's casting a spell on other ponies was something almost even worse than taking their cutie marks. And both times she thought she had the best intentions too.

Honestly, I wish she had stayed a villain, or at least still struggled with that. She sort of just flipped the "good" switch on and now she is essentially a dull version of Sunset Shimmer :shrug:

She wasn't really a villain. The village was made with good intentions and she was just misunderstood.
She didn't want to take over Equestria like Chrysalis or Nightmare Moon.

She was absolutely a villain. Just because someone thinks they have good intentions, it doesn't mean that they were misunderstood, or that their intentions were actually good ones. Her backstory was weak, and her reasons for becoming so bitter were ridiculous.
And she did want every pony in Equestria to be cutie markless, that was kind of the whole point.

Sunset also had a weak villain backstory, and her turnaround to good guy was also very quick, except the difference being Sunset was not forgiven instantly, as Starlight was.

Starlight wanted to spread friendship through Equestria but in her eyes, those marks were in the way of true friendship because talents were a thing that separated them for her.
Chrysalis wanted to imprison everypony and feed on their love, Tirek was wasting and destroying Equestria and Discord made everything a huge chaos. Those are villainous things to do. Plus she was more than happy to stay in her village until Twilight came over and put the idea in her mind that she could spread "her friendship" throughout all the land.

Plus her backstory wasn't so ridiculous when you've been through the same stuff. Losing a friend because they became better than you and just abandoned you is a huge hurt to the heart. It's very hard to get friends after that when the fact is running through your mind that they will just abandon you again. So she forced the friendship to keep them with her so she wouldn't be alone anymore.
It's very sad when you think about it...

She was manipulative, cold and cunning. She used her magic to literally tear the mane 6's Cutie marks off without their consent, which was shown to be a very painful process. She knew that when they lost their cutie marks they would lose everything about them that made them "them", and still did it anyway.

She wasn't trying to spread "friendship", she was trying to manipulative everyone else into joining her cult, all because when she was a child, her friend moved away. That is something that happens to everyone. We all lose friends. She just decided to be petty and never try to make any other friend again. I don't think that's sad, I think that's pathetic, honestly. And it is a weak villain backstory at the most.

That's weird because a lot of people go through losing a friend and being afraid of making new ones.
So you calling all those people pathetic too? Wow, way to show the message of the show.

She wasn't afraid, she became an evil cult leader. Most people don't do that, if you haven't noticed. So yeah, Starlight Glimmer is quite pathetic in my eyes. I never said anybody else was.

The trouble I have with Starlight is Twilight can have all the friendship lessons in the world with Starlight. But the real question is if there is a opening for Starlight to get a hold of her power she might take it. In that usefully when someone becomes a cult leader they are very good at bushing ponies buttons to get the results they want. And for all we know Starlight could have been hiding her inner cult leader and pushing Twlight's bottons.

The fact that Starlight was able to turn the main six into robots. That is something that most of the show's villains would kill to do. In that outside of Discord Trek and Queen Chrysalis along with King Sombra would have been unstoppable with mind control like Starlight's. 

The thing I don't like about the ponies is how they blow the whole thing off and forgive Starlight so super easy with out getting worried.

I would be more trusting of Thorax the Changeling vs Starlight. In that Thorax was a changeling drone who had no real say in the hive or what Queen Chrysalis did. But the fact that Starlight faced the main six I wouldn't be to trusting of her.

You just don't want to see that she clearly made that village to help herself and others make friends.
And because she felt that cutiemarks could stop friendships, she put them out of the picture.

I've gone through several loss of friends and betrayals the same way Starlight had in her childhood. Although I'm not making a cult, I still have very much trouble to make friends because I'm just afraid of having it happen again. Starlight had the means with her magic to force friendships and that's her biggest mistake. She needed to see that friendships are made willingly and not with force. And that's what she's learning now.

Woah, hey now.
Try reading animalpainter's comment again before throwing accusations at them.

The reason Starlight Glimmer was being pathetic was because she took those nasty things out on OTHERS and became nasty herself. Starlight then CONTINUES to be a very dull and petty villain, but that's not her fault necessarily. It's more that the writers fucked up reforming her by having her bad/good switch turned faster than Applejack could buck an apple tree. What's worse, Starlight Glimmer ISN'T EVEN PUNISHED FOR WHAT SHE DID.

She actually seems to fit better in the series when counting the season 5's finale to have never happened. At least that's my opinion. :D

SaturnStar14 Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, you could say that it happened but have the ending skipped out.
I mean, the reason why she's so bound on hating cutiemarks is in that episode so I'd leave that in.

adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Professional General Artist
That's true. Now that I think about it, another way they could've pulled off the finale would've been to seriously tone down the severity and brevity of the situation, then it actually would've been pretty awesome. Otherwise, it was pretty over the top. :O One could argue she didn't know it would result in such havoc, but she didn't seem too concerned as a witness. It would've been insightful had she encountered and witnessed cutiemark oppression and discrimination throughout her life, but I doubt the show would accommodate such sociological depth. :iconflutterthoughtfulplz:

But yes, the ending and wrap-up was more than a stretch. :XD:

I thought it was a pretty decent episode. Actually, the thing that surprised me the most was seeing Pinkie in a huff (I don't remember seeing that before, if we have at all).
On the Starlight side of things, I've never been a fan of her - not that I dislike her or anything. To me she's the character that needs to be doing something in order to be interesting. She doesn't seem to have anything really special about her personality that shines through. RD's coolness, Twilight's nerdiness, Pinkie's Pinkieness... the Main Six characters all have something I can smile at when I watch them, something that makes me feel good. But when I watch Starlight, I don't see anything I can really....like. I haven't yet seen a trait I can label as special to her that might make me like her more. I see her as too plain. The Flim Flam brothers are more interesting to me, even they have a little something there. 
This is totally just my opinion though. I respect everyone else's point of view. :)

Twilight took that trait long ago. :O ...At least initially. Then Moondancer! :D But I suppose she was a fast learner after reconvening the event she risked for friendship in the first place. :iconflutterthinkplz:

:iconsaturnstar14:
SaturnStar14 Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah but Twilight took nerdiness then xD But Starlight has the experience of losing friends and she never trusted anyone to be a good friend afterwards. Moondancer went the route of Twilight, "if she couldn't have friends, who needs them" and she dived into her books. Starlight tried to have friends again but forced the friendship unto them which is not the good way to go. And when Twilight tried to make her see her faults she was just so fixed on the fact that all friends will betray you sooner or later or that she will just be a dissapointment to them.
Moondancer was in another way socially awkward.

:iconadamlhumphreys:
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner 15 hours ago  Professional General Artist
Um, not quite seeing where you deduce that. It seemed Moondancer considered Twilight a friend, and essentially lost her by not hearing back from her.
But I suppose Starlight does bring the awkwardness to a whole new level. :XD:

I kept hiding my laugh as Starlight's spell turned the mane 6(sans Twilight) into literal robots, snowballing into the mess Twilight found eventually, and the recovery from that was sweet. Starlight suddenly became a lot more sympathetic with each minute for me. Easily in a top 3 of Season 6! ^^
