Time for a spin-off chronicling the further adventures of Joe and Haley, thrift store loading dock raiders?

I'm still not on board with Gordon dying as a narrative choice but THAT SAID, if he had to go this was the most beautiful coda to that story possible. What a well-observed and heartbreaking short story about grief. Just...everything about this was good. "He did a ton wrong."

As a Nineties Kid, "Fish Heads" holds a special place in my heart and I'm tickled that it showed up here. Also I just found out that it was co-written by Bill Mumy of that great syndicated Nineties sci-fi epic Babylon 5, which blows my mind.

I don't care if 'm three years late to the party, this was too sad and I'm mad about it. In fairness the the writers they have been telegraphing this moment for nearly the entire show and yet it still hit like a ton of bricks.

One of the best explorations of grieving processes I've ever seen in a movie or a TV show.
