My honest opinion? AWESOME EPISODE! Reasons why:

[1] Rainbow Dash has a lot of cute faces in it.
[2] Pinkie Pie's 'friendship' with Rainbow Dash is bordering towards "creepy", but I love megaphone scene.
[3] At last, the Wonderbolt's training grounds~! *squee*
[4] I like the cute pink pegasus. Can I call her "Sunflower"? And can she be my waifu [joke]?
[5] Cloud Chaser has a cute voice.
[6] Buffy "Yeah" Stallion is hillarious to watch.
[7] Finally, they've made Spitfire into the strict, cold, harsh and manipulative "drill sergeant" type she always should've been. She looks cool in uniform, too.
[8] Flight scenes remind me of the Acecombat games, cool and nostalgic.
[9] Evidence that ponies have weather control technology! Take that, humans!
[10] Lightning Dusk makes for a cool pony - too bad she's a SELFISH JERK!
[11] Rainbow Dash's decision to sacrifice her place in academy for her beliefs is proof that she has become more noble. Respect!
[12] Elements of suspense, which most episodes are lacking.
[13] Watching Twilight Sparkle and Rarity flail through the air, classic
[14] The powerful wisdom taught through the episode : "SELFLESSNESS" and "BE TRUE TO YOURSELF".

My only disappointment is that Soarin had no dialog, but it's okay because the story isn't about him.

And to you folks who like to complain, you're only bringing more things to complain about with your lack of gratitude and tendency for taking things for granted. You should be grateful that the story writers, editors, artists and animators actually took time to hear some of your ideas instead of throwing them all out the window.

Why?

She was perfectly set up to be Rainbow's Rival.

They would be stupid to not make her return as an opponent in a competition of sorts as part of another team, like the Shadowbolts or the Berserkers or some crap.

Which would be interesting because she is still the best flier in Equestria, even better than Dash.

Saw the episode. It was awesome! I'm impressed that Spitfire was a drill sergeant. :wow:

I'm not ecstatic about the episode, but it was really good. If Spitfire's voice is the biggest complain we have, then, heh, we're just picky:) But I too didn't like her here, which is weird, because I really liked how Kylie Metzger sounded in Powerpuff Girls Z (she was Buttercup's voice).
Here she sounds as if she tried to hard - I hope Ms Metzger's throat didn't get butchered during the recording;)

She was just in drill sergeant mode. Once the week is up she can get back to her stoner voice. :P

I spoiled myself. Good episode. I was hoping for more Top Gun references/jokes but I'm happy with what I got. Anything to do with Dash as a high-performance flyer is good for me, plus there was a pseudo-skydiving scene.

Watched it.
Why did I do it? Well, I sleep through the better part of most Saturdays(what with sleeping at sunrise and all), and always miss the ep.
And before I get any worse with being sick, I figured the hell with it, and get that out of the way.
Figures. Spitfire's sporting a new voice again...voices don't work that way, they're not cars...(Let's just send Swedish Spitfire's VA to Canadia, or wherever they're doing recordings and be done with it.)
I want one of these new Pinkie Pie hugs, btw.

It was a good one indeed. Lighting Dust was, shocker, not a good leader. I knew it was going to be a lesson on being a great leader for Rainbow Dash or that sometimes we need to learn to work together. I'm really glad they are developing Dash in a way that she doesn't seem like an egotistical pony like Lighting Dust.

Actually, I thought Lightning Dust was a pretty good character. I enjoyed the episode (And I don't usually enjoy episodes by that writer) though it seemed to end a bit abruptly...

Spitfire sounded strange to me, though it could have just been the fact that she was in drill sergeant mode. Loved the ep though, and Rainbow's dilemma.

Okay, Lighting Dust is self-absorbed, an over the top dare devil, highly ambitious. You know thats sounds just like RD, except she is caring of others, willing to work as a team, and loyal to the end. This one earns RD respect. She is now 2nd on my Best Pony list.

Lightning could also be considered a psychopath. She exhibits several of the traits including reduced fear, a lack of empathy, a lack of remorse, irresponsibility, impulsivity, and egocentricity.

Ever since I started watching it, I get up every Saturday (used to be on Fridays) to see the new episode. I've only missed two due to events out of my control. I try to avoid all major spoilers until that time. Screenshots are okay in my book, but I try my best to stay away from everything else.

It's kind of silly, yes. But it's fun for me and it gives me something to look forward to every Saturday morning. I consider it a personal tradition of mine.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realize YouTube no longer existed. Rarely do I actually watch it on television.
"I don't know" because I honestly don't know, it's a habit. I don't think it's stupid, personally, but to each their own I guess.

I LOVED THE EPISODE! I made a group for Lightning Dust as a result! (Seeing as with what happened when characters like Trixie were introduced and the Derpy incident, there's bound to be some takers! I smell a fic idea coming any moment!)
