Sometimes, on Spoiler Warning, we manage to nail an episode and fit just about everything you could want into it: making fun of major plot events, meeting important NPCs (and killing them), and finding ways to make Reginald Cuftbert’s reputation even more absurd.
And then other times we manage to bring the perfect collection of circumstances together to create an episode wherein absolutely nothing of consequence happens and everything that’s being done is in the interest of getting to something of consequence which inevitably happens just after the end of the episode and ends up at the beginning of the next one.
This is one of those episodes.
Of course, episodes where nothing happens tend to make for perfect platforms for us to throw the commentary dial directly to “inane” and cram in as many drinking-game references as possible. You’re welcome. We’re sorry.
