The One With the Black Boots and Red Hose

00Ep. 53

SON ch 26 & 27

It's a double feature! Yes, we are covering chapters 26 and 27 of Shadow of Night in one shot (it explains the length of the episode). In chapter 26, we meet a new (to us) de Clermont; Verin ... and her husband Ernst. We reunite with present-day Gallowglass, and we see how Philippe continues to look over the family from the grave. We then zip back in time to 1591 in chapter 27 to catch up with Matthew and Diana in Prague. They are establishing their household, settling the kids in, and plotting their course to finally get their hands on Ashmole 782. First stop, Emperor Rudolf's place. On first read, we go in not knowing what to expect, but we come out feeling a bit like Diana -- ugh! Please excuse us. We need to shower now.

Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"

The One With the Closet Raid

00Ep. 52

SON ch 25

Just when Diana was making Elizabethan London her home, someone is telling her it's best that she leaves! We meet Matthew's boss, William Cecil (nicknamed The Old Fox), and he brings with him advice for Diana; go back to Woodstock, and wait out the incoming storm. That storm has a name: Queen Elizabeth I. Instead, Matthew and Diana choose to stay and weather it with help from members of the School of Night, and Mary -- who arms Diana for battle during an epic closet raid! This is a long episode, so you know what to do. Indulge in shifts, take that extra long walk, or be covered for both ends of your commute! You choose! Enjoy!

The One With the Enigma

00Ep. 50

Character Study - Miriam Shephard

In this episode, we turn our focus on Miriam as our character "on the tens!" We got to see her in action on the TV show, and learn more facets of her personality in Time's Convert, but in the end ... what do we exactly know about her? Hence, the title of the episode: The Enigma. Still, it's engaging to imagine what she's seen and done in her past as we look forward to learning more in the future!

The One With the Word

00Ep. 49

SON ch 23

Diana has just miscarried, and Matthew is a Mess™. We all examine our feelings and reactions to both characters in this episode. We also gather around with the witches to watch Diana cast her forespell! You were wondering about the episode title? Well, with this ritual a new creature emerges. How does this relate? F*cking Firedrake -- sound familiar? See what we did there? That also happens to be "the word" to get into our Facebook group. We caught ourselves trying to be clever! Please enjoy our splash back into the chapters; we certainly did!
