THIS WEEK: Shocker is dismantled and gone forever! Or are they??? (Spoiler: No they're not.) Van and Sven talk about the end of Ambassador Hell's arc as the show revisits some older concepts. In addition, our tabletop past briefly comes to haunt us; the show briefly remembers Hongo's actual occupation; eight-year-olds go around unsupervised; one of Taki's disguises actually works, and do you remember what today is, Jack?
