You know, I don't CARE if people thought Dash wasn't going to listen. I don't even care if people are complaining and sick of the MDW hate. This whole mess will NEVER EVER be resolved unless there will be a future episode canon showing ANY kind of consequences and understanding towards the other mane five for their bull in this ep. Talking to Dash won't work? Really? All it would have taken was one simple scene shoxing them talking to her, but not havibg her listen, and just a small moment like that would excuse the actions of the mane five. Even if rainbow dash is a hated character, nobody cares. Seeing a character suffer and in a constant state of misery is not acceptable or even funny. This episode will never ever be redeemed for the poor writing, OOC behaviour, and lack of great humor, unless there can be a future ep. that can show consequences toward dash's ***hole friends' actions.
I know Dash's element is loyalty, but when revelation Raindow Dash should not have been grateful, but furious at them for betraying her loyalty like that. That is what I a normal individual would have done.
