So fascinated to see that they’re going to cover the COVID outbreak in all of this.

Already in choosing which news stories to cover they decide not to do the one about the respiratory virus in China.

I saw a “previously on” before the episode, and interestingly the story that Alex and Bradley were reporting before they went off script was a mystery illness on a cruise liner. But as that episode was set eight months before December 2019, I suppose it’s coincidence.

Miscellaneous observations:

- love the terrible mixed metaphor of rising from the ashes like Venus from the clamshell. Also, Corey admitting he's barely holding it together.

- did they say "baby new year beginning to crown"?

- Yanko being wrong about the weather and the psychic missing basically everything about Alex (except for maybe the end?) is an interesting little foreshadowing of no one knowing what's coming in 2020.
