Ramona, heads to a film set to see Lucas, her movie star ex, whose role in a major Canadian motion picture attracts media attention - and the paparazzi.

They're starting to really lean into the meta (metaverse?) nature of this re-interpretation of the story. I laughed out loud when it was revealed what Young Neil's screenplay was about, and the gag of it being directed by Edgar Wrong.

I missed that! I noticed the director was voiced by Kevin McDonald, but he's got a pretty distinctive voice.

I was wondering why security guards in Toronto would have British accents and then I saw the credits and figured it was so that they could give cameos to them.

I keep wondering if there's a specific actor that Chris Evans is imitating for Lucas Lee. Sometimes I think Stephen Seagal, but other times, naw. He wears the 'tude well, in any case.

I really want some BTS clips of Chris Evans' process in this episode. What was in the script and/or direction to inspire the variety of grunts he... grunted

I was SO PLEASED that I figured out the guards were supposed to be Simon Pegg and Nick Frost literally five seconds before the credits made it clear
