I agree with this assessment - Chris found in Bronycon that sense of belonging that he's not had since the day Graduation itself forced him out of that comfort zone. Except now the very people in that community are shutting him out. No Gal Pals here. Or a school administration that basically nullifies any and all repercussions of the actions Chris does. He's trying the childlike approach of simply asking to be let back into the cool kids club but where that used to work, his reputation precedes him and people know better.
