On top of being a pretty whatever episode, I can't help but notice the creators kind purposely do things like this to Fluttershy, most likely because she's a fan fave and people often make comics about her being the complete opposite of her personality. Flutterbat, Flutterhulk, even in the earlier season where she got a humorously deep voice from the poison joke. While in the earlier episodes, they just enjoyed making her shy and timid, in season 4 they seem to have a big thing for pulling her out of her comfort zone. Whenever they do this I can't help but imagine the creators are thinking, "Oh yeah. Do that to Fluttershy! I bet the fans will love that! It could be a meme and everything!" (That sounds really dirty out of context)

I REALLY didn't like how this episode treated AJ as the antagonist when she was in the right. Those bats had no right to be on that farm, and HELLO! Equestria to Fluttershy, those bats WOULD help the trees grow stronger faster IF there was fewer around. Get rid of most of them, they stole from their own kin.

"They're loyal to their families." Tell that to the one who stole from the other bat. Fluttershy had little issues to send the Parasprites away, but the vampire fruit bats? NO!

Did I forget to mention the not-funny ending with Fluttershy still having fangs?

C

The only reason it's not a D is because of how done this episode was otherwise.

This episode's conflict reminded me of James Cameron's Avatar. I know not everyone likes that movie, and I'm also aware that it is Dances with Wolves in space.

You forgot about the fact that the Vampire fruit bats actually make the trees stronger in the long-term, which doesn't make them complete pests unlike parasprites for instance.

I first suspected Crooked Sailor was crooked when I said his name out loud.
