This episode title nicely sums up the entire series.

Such a fun episodes, and the witty banter and over-all writing is still top notch!

Eliot: Parade in my head complete. Make it rain.

Fairy Queen: I require someone I trust to accompany you. We call her Frail Human. Fray for short.

I'm exceedingly glad the ladies helped save the day.

Prior to the season started, I posted asking if people wanted seperate book and show only threads this season. The general sense was "no" but do we still think that now that the show has started?

Well, I want show-only threads as I haven't read the books and still have vague intentions of maybe reading them someday. I understand that the plots have diverged, but, I don't want to see book spoilers.

That poor kitten. :(

At least it wasn't prolonged torture like the poor cat that Reynard killed last season, but, I'd be super happy if this was the last time The Magicians killed a cat. Sigh. Loved Eliot on his quest though.

I loved the exploding kitty, it was so over the top. Generally I liked how fast-paced this episode was, with a minimum of brooding.

I also want show-only threads.

I wanted to see the dinosaur! damn budgets.

I was expecting Chekhov's Sentient Boat to ruin Eliot's trip, but I was glad to be wrong. Although I also knew that Father Poe is a lying bastard because as Eliot says, "cliches" due to "a world without TV".

Man, lamprey Quentin. As if he wasn't already insufferable.

Also, I might have missed something but didn't Lipson herself said that Penny's magic cancer is incurable even with magic? I guess Kady is just trying to delay his death with magic from the battery?

Roger Cross as the admiral! I love him and hope he sticks around.
