Who knows? Maybe that's really happened, only that she was forced to quit her job and return to the farm. With her being the Element of Loyalty Honesty and all, she probably turned out to be a terrible lawyer.
Thanks. It would definitely be an interesting, and much needed, episode for Applejack.
Sure, she did get two episodes during season two, but it felt as is she was never actually in the spotlight in any of them. During "The Last Roundup" she was missing for half the episode (also, Derpy stole the show) and during the cider episode there was more focus on Flim and Flam than on her.
Well, they are both earth ponies, show a great interest in making money, get almost the same amount of screen time and they both look smashing in the mayor's outfit. Yep, I believe Applejack would make a fine mayor.
Seems like ones of those typical plots which all long-running shows need to have one episode about. I could definitely picture an episode where the mane six swap bodies with each other; it would probably play out something like this.
