- Return to The Perfect Pear
I seriously can't wait for this episode. I'm curious to see how the whole revelation will come about. Given that there's been no mention of the Pears before and that Granny Smith seems to have taken over raising Applejack and co., I would guess that they and the Apples still aren't on the best of terms. Pear Butter might have been ostracized after choosing to be with Bright Mac; as such, I see a few possible plotlines for setting up the story:
1. Apple Bloom (with or without her siblings) happens to run into a crotchety Old Grand Pear, comes home all upset, and the trio then find out from Granny Smith that he's their maternal grandfather (I'm assuming it's a guy given that Grand Pear seems to play off of Granpere, the French word for grandfather) which then leads into the whole story of how their parents got together.
2. Old Grand Pear shows up at Sweet Apple Acres wanting to see his grandkids, with Big Mac and his sisters being fairly surprised to meet the grandfather they've never been told about before, leading to Granny Smith and Grand Pear sharing the tale.
3. After hearing that Grand Pear is injured or sick (dying might be a little intense for My Little Pony), Granny Smith decides her grandkids should have ties to their mom's side of the family and takes them to see him.
- Also, given the events of Hard to Say Anything, I'm kinda hoping Sugar Belle shows up in this one, maybe even as an additional catalyst to the Apples finding out about their mom's side of the family. Voltron23
So...that summary wasn't really accurate, was it? It seems like I was halfway right with my first and second theories-Apple Bloom is the one that meets Grand Pear, but he does want to see his grandchildren rather than being old and cranky. I must say, I am dying to watch this episode, even if sadly Sugar Belle isn't going to be involved. Oh, and am I the only one who's extremely glad that William Shatner is playing Grand Pear and not Bright Mac?--Voltron23 (talk) 20:08, June 21, 2017 (UTC)
