I have gotten entirely too much mileage out of a sequence that lasts only 12 seconds in the actual episode. (I counted.)

"I love you, so I'm going to take away the job and home you've had all your life."

Yep, sounds legit.

A job can get in a way of a relationship.

Althought it was thoughtless and egocentric of him to choose for her like this, it IS true that Rarity climbed in popularity AND in became much more high profile then a rogue should be.

My guess is that he is one who don't consider love as being important it a wedding setting. COnsiderig how he is good looking and a prince, he must be looking in a potential wife for practical reasons rather then love. Althought Rarity dont have contacts in Nobility, I can see why it's a plus for him as it mean she don't have a plan to supplant the Blueblood family by marrying him.

So yeah, my guess is he did that to her because one, she had become the focus of attention by becoming a local celebrity. Two, he was hoping she would use her Dainty Dove and her skills to get to him. He is a control freak who don't want to marry a party who is stronger then him in INFLUENCE. Someone he can trust to join the Blueblood family without any other motive then maybe having a confortable life for herself.

If she had moped and chosen to be mediocre, then he would have stepped down as it meant he "misjudged her" instead of admitting what he did was wrong.

Don't forget its just a theory guys though. Im probably not right on this one XD

A relationship can get in the way of a job. ;)

I can totally buy that Elusive wants to be with Rarity just to sponge off some of that fame, and perhaps accompanying fortune that Rarity would acquire for being a celebrity hero (with her own clothing line).

DM has been watching "You've Got Mail," maybe?

... and now I'm hearing him deliver the lines in Tom Hanks's voice.

I disagree.

Figure that Rarity is a young up-and-comer in the guild and catches the eye of BB. Since he's got influence, he decides to create a scenario where Rarity gets hung out to dry as a test to see if she would be a worthy companion to someone of his position (cheerfully ignoring that someone worthy would also be supremely dangerous to him).
In his mind, Rarity comes back, tries to get back in the graces, "discovers" his real identity, and is soooooo impressed by him that he sweeps her off her hooves and he has an attractive consort that can also perform tasks in his name. Winner: Blueblood

And clearly, he has never appreciated the awesome power of a mare scorned.

Yeah, that would be my interpretation too. "I knew you were good enough. I just needed to *see* it."
