Well, the episode ran rather dull for me right up until the last 5 minutes or so, when it had a bit of life breathed back into it. I used to be a big CMC fan, but then they got their marks, and I felt their storyline was done, and we should have seen them moving on to bigger and better things. Instead, they just kind of languished around the same basic storyline again and again.

Maybe now, with the conclusion I saw in this episode, they will begin to do something bigger, but who knows. Still, in my opinion, Starlight saved this from being a rather dull episode. As always, just my two bits, and this one gets a C+, all of it thanks to Starlight saving it from certain tedium for me.

On a side note:

Spoiler Alert
Cozy Glow is one of the few ponies I saw with a cutie mark that has nothing to do with her name. Her cutie mark appeared to be a red chess piece, more specifically a rook. Now, that may have been done to purposely mislead the viewer, because there is an expression where one is "rooked," which means one has been deceived into doing something that benefits the one doing the rooking. So if that was on purpose, nice job! I fell for it.
