MLP:FIM Grannies Gone Wild

This episode is the fourth written by Gillian M. Berrow. Her previous episodes were The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows, Fluttershy Leans In and Daring Done?. The episode was storyboarded by Michelle Ku  and Megan Willis (both have been boarding for the show since season 6). In this episode Rainbow Dash accompanies Granny Smith and friends on a trip to Las Pegasus.

This is a quite enjoyable episode. The humor is often spot on and very funny. It is great seeing these side characters get their time to shine and they do. Rainbow is also very relatable here. She has nothing at all against what the grannies are doing, but Applejack gave her instructions not to let them do it. All in all this is a highly enjoyable episode even if it is not up to par with earlier episodes this season.
