    Am I the only one who got the impression that they blind-sided Marc Evan Jackson with the big reveal at the end? The palpable glee that the other cast members have at his discomfort lead me to think that he wasn’t aware of that particular plot twist.

  2. Andrea aka Fred says:

    I’m split between “uh… what?” and being dead from laughing hysterically. Gosh, I love this podcast

  3. Arcane says:

    I’m calling it now, Shape-shifting Sparks, Jr. reappears hyper-aged months later to looks for her “real” parents.

    Oh, and Croach, whaaat?

  4. Millie says:

    … I’m about to nope straight out of existence.

  5. Jackson says:

    PFT is amazing, he steals the show every time.

    @Heather: That’s about it, yep. Jupiter Spy copied Sparks’s DNA and Red is just the carrier. You know how it goes.
