That was a thing. Rainbow Dash these days seem to focus a lot more on her choices in situations that hit right at her very dreams and her as a person; her love for flying, her loyalty, and her capability as a person to grow. The last point is pretty salient, of all the 6 characters, she has had the most growth as a character, on both physical, emotional, and mental levels.
Twilight and Rarity may be the ones I relate the most too, but from a story telling perspective these past 4 seasons, Rainbow Dash's been a joy to behold. I never thought I would ever say that. Her episodes to me are as synonymous with quality as Rarity episodes are, and do I daresay, even exceeding it at times.
