As much as Lisa's usual gift has it advantages, it isn't the best empathy-building path out there.
Ever since she started her "your god terrifies me" argument with Katy-Ann, she continues to show signs that there's a deeper, intimate side waiting to get out for when things can't be catch-phrase simple. The empathy and sober perspective needed to help that side of her grow only comes from walking a mile in Charlie Brown's shoes, which Lisa has gotten out of doing for almost her entire life.
Katy-Ann was a similar case, but she answered the call of the Blockhead by the Bridge Out arc and multiple moments outward, climaxing with her drunken confession to Lisa and Brandi. Lisa made motions towards such, but ultimately got out of it quickly, just like all the times before.
Now there's no way around That Kite-Eating Tree, the Summer Camp Bunk-mate who would only say "Shut up and leave me alone!" to you, or Lucy impishly promising to let you kick a football only to pull it out from under you at the last minute every single time, only through them. Hank, now being concerned about Lisa and the local expert on such things, may be just who she needs now.
No question here, so no answer.
A question you want, yes?
Ok. Has Lisa Discovered My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? If so, what does she think of it?
