Discussion

Applejack got an episode this week, called “Leap of Faith.” And her spotlight wasn’t stolen this time! Well, mostly. Still, Alca7raz and Nemesis talk about it. And Applejack’s character. Something that needed attention. Oh, and Flim and Flam are talked about a bit, too. They’re probably important to the episode…
