Three short stories involving the EQ Girls at Canterlot High strived to fix Camp Everfree, ceasing a culprit for sabotaging the Daring-Do film's production and the discovery of a mystical mirror at Juniper's movie theater.

[facing Princess Celestia]
Princess Celestia, the last time we saw each other, I was your snide little pupil who betrayed and abandoned you.
I wouldn't have said it *that* way.
What Sunset means to say is...
I mean that I come before you a changed pony, humbly asking for forgiveness, guidance, and knowledge.

Or I can just go, and you never have to see me again.

I've missed you, Sunset ...

This was a TV special about Sunset Shimmer's friends suddenly forgetting she was her friend and everyone only remembering when she was a bully. A simple story in theory but this turned out to be stronger, both emotionally and plotwise, than expected.
Now don't get me wrong, this is a show for young girls and not Shakespeare. But like most of the MLP:FiM universe, far more effort is put in writing-wise than most girl shows. This special utilizes the history of the characters and deals with Sunshet Shimmer dealing with past mistakes she made at Canterlot High and in Equestria. It also deals a lot with Sunset as a character and her regrets and sorrow at losing the friendships she has built. It is this backstory and characterization that makes the special more compelling that it has any right to be and ending in a touching conclusion.
On the downside, most of the main characters in this series are sidelined as Sunset is left alone for the majority of the special. On the plus, the spotlight is shown on the egotistical showwoman Trixie. She is a hoot and has the best lines.
Overall, a nice little special.
