Fun fact: This was one of the scenes shown when the ponies were describing what they had heard about Island ponies. None of this happened afterwards… It was just paranoid delusions brought on by rumors and hysteria.

Not… really. Don’t get me wrong, she wasn’t a good person in the film, but she wasn’t that much more evil than the other two. Here, she is, and it implies that she has been even before Adagio and Aria went down the path of redemption. Her stupidity was the only thing keeping her from being the biggest villain here.
I honestly wish they didn’t show this; I was fine with implications of comedic sociopathy in this arena without having to be smacked in the face with the reality of said abuse. She was supposed to be the sociopathic comedic relief to all the drama going on in the far more human Aria and Adagio’s lives.
But asides from this—- over the top flirtation with grimderp, I actually found this version of the character quite a refreshing subversion. Usual trope is for Sonata to be the most redeemable one of the trio. Here, Sonata is the most evil of the three. However, until now, this has been usually played for laughs.
Like, holy shit, Aria and Adagio better cut her tubes! And take that kid off her hands!
