My opinion of this episode is much different than yours. I don't like it and for me it's one of the worst episodes of all series.

I really don't like Christmas movies, episodes etc. especially when it totally didn't match to the topic. And that episode is exacly this.

Besides it ordinary, average filler but unnecesariily stretched into two episodes. Such wasted potential to show winter among rabbits.

That would explain why you've been hurting it nearly every post :cowslip

While I enjoyed the episode, I agree about some things you say, you make some valid points :silverweed3 It is a filler episode, it does not move the main plot forward, the events are never mentioned again :bluebell It does not introduce any important characters (Buttercup and her warren never appear again, wasted potential :buttercup2), at least Bark and Tassel (introduced in other filler episodes) make brief appearances in season 3 :bark.

I also agree about the wasted potential, and not just because of Buttercup and gang :goat Winter lasts several months, but we only get to see a day or two, then they skip straight ahead to spring :speaker-of-the-past Winter in Efrafa could have also been interesting, it probably would have been very different from Winter on WD :blackavar

Thats why I wrote this. I felt a duty to explain why I have hurting that episode and propably I will hurting it as long as black rabbit of Inle takes it with him :inle-series

I totally agree with you about the winter in Efrafa and how long is winter. We could get something new and interesting instead of only Christmas episodes.
