  1. Brandon Green on

    Just caught up with all the Critical Hit episodes, and loving every minute of it!

    I wasn’t sold on Sekhar at the beginning of this season, but he’s started to grow on me. While I love Sam’s idea that he is a chupacabra, I actually think most of the evidence points to him being a tainted Yuan-ti. Excited to see what happens with that storyline.

    Looking forward to the next episode! #savethescientists

  2. Crystal Groves on

    I’m honestly surprised that they didn’t leave one scientist alive, to get some information out of them. Good luck, guys. You’ll probably need it. Hopefully you’re prepared for whatever comes next!

    Also, is that clacking noise Sam’s keyboard?

  3. Just now at this episode. I wonder why Orem chose his winter spells instead of his summer spells when they were explicitly coming to the Black Archive to set things on fire.

    Regardless, this is a great podcast and I learn so much!
