This was a weird episode, even by their standards. Hesitate to say more than that because everything I want to remark on is too spoileriffic.

"Was that the one?" was so perfect, with Justin's deep, quiet voice. Just so perfectly evocative and tense.

I'm seeing references to the Arms Outstretched, in relation to this episode, and it's a really interesting contrast. Taako immediately reached out to get Magnus; Devo, here, hesitates before jumping in after Amber. Merle did the extraordinary to assist Taako; Zoox, here, was actively hampering Devo. It's not a mirror image, and it's not an exact inversion, but it's like an echo that's been distorted.

So, judging from the lack of fanfare posts for subsequent episodes I’m guessing I’m not the only person who’s fallen off this season.

It’s weird - I wanted griffin to DM, I wanted them to go back to d&d, but… this just isn’t a very good show anymore? Justin’s clear lack of interest, Travis being.. travis.. I just find myself pushing episodes further and further down my podcast playlist
