I love that this episode actually showed Shelby being upset with Erin. I mean, she had every reason to be.

Erin, her supposed best friend, took credit for of her accomplishments. Not just once or twice, but many many times. After all, they’ve been friends since kindergarten. If Shelby is 18, that’s means Shelby’s suffered through years of Erin’s stealing!

And then in this episode, without a thought, Erin pretended to be the pink ranger, which unbeknownst to her, is actually Shelby. Once again, Erin took credit for Shelby’s hard work. Worse, Erin didn’t stop her ruse even after Shelby called her out on it. She didn’t care about the pink ranger’s feelings. She only cared about her own fame.

To add insult to injury, after that initial fight, Shelby rushed into the café shouting Erin’s name. Like here was Shelby scared that her best friend was hurt and instead she discovered that Erin was stealing from her. Again.

I really liked how this episode, for the most part, validated Shelby’s anger. After all, these kinds of slights take place in many friendships. I think it’s so important that the kids watching this show learn that these slights are hurtful and that it’s totally okay to be angry about them. Especially since so many young people, especially women, are taught to dismiss and suppress their own anger.
