Discussion

We finally disentangle ourselves from Equestria Girls and Rainbow Rocks (for the most part) this week! Instead, Alca7raz and Nemesis talk about The Mysterious Mare Do Well. This was an episode that got a pretty strong negative reaction, and they’re no exception.

But the why is different for both of them. They explain their reasoning, and even have a debate about their interpretations of Dash and her character. Alca7raz even brings headcanon into it. For better or for worse.
