[Deconstruction is Magic] My Little Pony, episode 18 "The Show Stoppers"

"Everything we got in the last episode was about what the CMCs weren't good at, and by here revealing what they are good at, it deepens them as characters who are so caught up trying to be something cool or following in a hero's footsteps that they overlook what makes they themselves special and fail to recognize talents for what they are. And to the credit of our adult characters, they recognize this in the children, and instead of trying to forcefully point out what the kids don't understand, they're gently trying to guide them in that direction, and patiently sigh as that doesn't work, as they know the CMCs will figure it out some day."
