Discussion

“For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils” is the somewhat ominously titled episode this week. And Nemesis and Alca7raz dive right into it. Much like swimming with dolphins, or something. Anyway, they talk about the episode at length, including the insight we get into several characters. And Nemesis offers an explanation as to why the episode felt unusually short. It’s probably not a good one, though.

After that, they have a comic to talk about! Issue 1 of the main series, to be precise. It kicks off the “Reflections” arc, and it’s quite the kickoff! The two hosts discuss what they thought about it. Plus the wrecking ball it takes to some fanon (please no Miley Cyrus references… wait…). Nemesis also draws the second and final round of winners for the Funko giveaway he started!
