Alright. Episode 20.


Another premise that interests me more than the previous two.


Let's see what this episode has to offer.




Spikes list is way too long for it to contain only a few sentences.


Okay, i expect Starlight to give Trixie the position she had at the end of the episode.


Big Mac? Vice Head MARE? Eyyyynope?


Would that little experiment have failed if the bird didn't catch the drop of water with it's mouth? And they all would have booed? xD


Trixie is adorable in this episode.


Guardians? I'm getting Destiny vibes here. xD


(Once again, i've probably missed some episodes that already had this in it) This is the first time i see a female changeling that's not Chrysalis. Interesting.


Trixie having to deal with the fucking Griffons is just unfair.


Love that Octavia and Vinyl cameo.


But if Octavia is soo busy with her concerts (and music is her passion) then why does she apply for this job in the first place?


Trixie BOOPS Starlight. xD


Why SWEEP when you can just teleport all the mess away.


Aaaaand of course the classical talk scene after the breakdown.


Well, Trixie ended up getting A position.




Alright. This episode feels a bit more like a classical friendship lesson from the earlier seasons but with newer characters. One of the two characters the episode is focused on overdoes something, the other character freaks out, they have a talk, and at the end of the day both characters have learned a lesson. Trixie was adorable. Starlight was good. I liked the cameos.



I would give it a 7/10.

The adorbs levels of the cold open are too strong! My pancreas can't take this much concentrated cuteness!



"Potted plants scream desperation."
Hmmm, Trixie may be on to something there...






Dr. Trixees: "What's this? A handsome class field trip, woefully underpopulated by flash bees? A large influx of FLASH BEES oughta put a stop to that!"
