This episode stood out to me for three reasons. One, it was jam-packed with beautification activities: the nail-filing, the hot-tub, the cucumber facial masks, the massage, the Mayor's hair-dyeing scandal, and probably a few more things I missed. Two, the inbetweening was pretty bad in this episode. Three, two intense shots, one where Rarity is shocked at her article in the paper, and another when her shadow is cast on the door.
Funniest moment: Spike retrieving his cucumber slice after Rainbow Dash eats it.
