Quotes

Rarity: [having caught up with Applejack after their argument] You were right. I got carried away and let this stupid parade become the only thing that mattered to me! And I let Vignette manipulate me with false flattery into forgetting what *really* matters: my friends.
Applejack: Come on, now. Your talent puts you so far beyond the need for flattery.
Rarity: Stop flattering me! I've not finished apologizing! I'm sorry I lost sight of why we applied for jobs here in the first place.
Applejack: And *I'm* sorry I got jealous. All ...

The magic of Honesty and Generosity
21 July 2018 | by Thumper-113See all my reviews

The Equestria Girls have returned once more for their second 1 hour long special of the year, and it sure was a roller coaster of an experience. We're brought into an amusement park themed special this time around, as well as another test of friendship when it comes to the crucial words of honesty, and the pivotal moments of generosity.

We're now into the perspectives of human Applejack and Rarity for this special, as the two of them try to enjoy the amusement park for the day as much as they can with their friends, but Applejack can't help but notice Rarity's constant stress over her new fashion designing job at the park. To make matters worse, Equestrian magic leaking from the crack on the statue at Canterlot High has only been leading the Equestria Girls to an even more feared circumstance than they imagined, and all it takes to cause further chaos is as simple as the click of a photo.

The special was fairly enjoyable to watch, especially since we got to see some of the best interactions and pairings between the Equestria girls. We got to see the crazy rides from the eyes of Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and her times as the fun inspector among all the people within the park, and the mathematical minds of Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle with the challenging fair games.

The main issue I had with this special however was that certain concepts felt rather similar in regards to other Equestria Girls specials in the past. For example, the concept of trapping someone into a small space room was similar to Juniper Montage's plan from the special Mirror Magic.

But even so, I still liked how the special represented honesty for Applejack in a way that all the Equestria Girls would be on her side, especially since they know by now about the kind of person she is and always has been. It was also used as a good tool for not just testing to see how well each of them truly trust one another, but also allowing the aspect of Generosity to come into place for a character like Rarity. In this case, her trust in Applejack's Honesty is what leads to her generosity by choosing her friends over her work if it means stopping the villain.

Overall, another well-entertaining special that the Equestria Girls has brought us. If you're a fan of the series and have yet to watch it, you will most likely enjoy it as much as any other special that's come out so far. It's hard to tell what and when other specials will be nearing for Equestria Girls, but as long as they're as creative as the other 1 hour long specials for this year including this one, then it will surely be worth the wait.
