Discussion

So it’s time for the mid-season finale. And it’s “Not Asking For Trouble!” In which the yaks return. Or more accurately, Pinkie returns to the yaks. And things went wrong for them. Nemesis and Alca7raz have slightly different opinions on this one. Let’s just say one of them wasn’t really impressed with this episode.
