This episode has a few notes unease in it just as the other one did both of them linked to sword somehow one of them including a charming toy helicopter another one including a men in a beekeeper suit with a sword leg on the back of the man. The beekeeper suit is blinked out of existence. We're not sure how but suggested some sort of editing or reality altering power at work all right. Oh my gosh.

Brady's haircut basically and that nia slapped into a truly hysterical wig She gets increasingly more grabbed as the episode progresses and it turns out. Pregnancy makes her magic go wonky.
