What I liked about this episode was that I don't think the word "boring" was ever used to describe her, though it was fiercely implied. At no point was Maud rude or unpleasant. She seemed willing to try anything presented to her, however limited her ultimate scope of it was. And none of the ponies tried to change her, or conclude that her interests were of any less worth than theirs. They were clearly frustrated at how little enjoyment they derived from interacting with her, but none of them acted like this was her fault.
And for all that, the effort to turn Maud's dullness into awkward humor was nearly as good as one could expect. Rarely laugh-out-loud stuff, though that nuclear rock-toss was certainly TRYING. And it did well to see there WERE interesting things to be said about her, even if the subject matter was dull.
...then again, how many characters in the past have gotten decent mileage out of hurling rocks or having power over earth? Given what we saw by the finale, I'd like to see Maud battle Toph. Her skills are probably subtler than we know...

About the episode: Boy, the episode was boring as fuck. Just some ginggles here and there, but nothing special or significant happened. At all.

If it turns out they are I would love to see Pinkie start shout off things in German out of nowhere when she gets angry. Then we can translate it and laugh at the weird stuff she's been saying the whole time like with Lady Rainacorn.
