Why the pandemic is getting worse, and how to think about the future
"Okay Richard, so there are about forty seven different things we could talk about to unpack the story of how we got here in where we're going, but we chose a few of the big ones to focus on in this episode, so testing was a mess at the beginning. It seemed to get better for a little bit, and now it seems like it's a mess again, so what happened? Well it is complicated. Let's take you back to the beginning of the epidemic when the decided to develop its own test for the corona virus, which is standard practice for them, but honestly they bungled it, and instead of reaching for tests developed in Germany and distributed widely by the World Health Organization the CDC fix this quickly, and they kept trying, but really that turned out to be a big mistake, and it cost us a lot of time. I think the CDC didn't really realize the scope of this epidemic early on federal health officials should have done what South Korea did for instance what they did overseas immediately spur commercial companies to produce large quantities of tests. The US eventually got to that point, but you know it was really late, and now, of course we are in better shape. The US is averaging something like six hundred thousand tests a day or sometimes even more than that, but. It's still far short of the amount of tests that experts say we should be doing. Yeah, and let me ask you about that. Because I've seen estimates that we need to be doing like double or triple, the amount of tests to really control the virus right and you know the number of tests you need to do is really relative to the number of infected people, so we have so many infected people, and that number is growing. We really need to be doing a lot more testing. For example scientists at the World Health Organization uses a rule of thumb that you should have enough tests that your when you get the results back only about five percent or coming back positive. That, means that most of the people are negative, which is what you'd hope what you'd expect right now. Unfortunately, we have states like Texas and Florida in Arizona where the number of percent positive is like seventeen, eighteen or even twenty five percent, and you know the percent positive rates keep going up, which means it's definitely not true as the president has frequently claimed at the cases are only writing, because we're testing more. No seeing more positive cases as we see more tests so okay. Let's talk about the case numbers of it back in April we were at about you know thirty thousand cases per day and now we're. Sixty thousand new cases a day, which is objectively worse and to put that in perspective, sixty thousand people wouldn't even fit in dodger stadium, which is the biggest baseball stadium in this country, so we're talking about you know. Give you a visual image of what we're talking about it right right and you know. Some of that is driven by big outbreaks in places like California, Texas and Florida. Let's talk a little. Little bit more about why cases are up in those places. Yeah, it's complicated series of reasons, but some of it is that we're what we were talking about a little bit earlier. Some of these were in states like Texas and Arizona that were determined to open really early, and we're a lot of people including politicians thought you know starting. Their economies was more important than being really cautious about the virus. Could also be other stuff at play here because you know it is summer, and those are places that very hot, so more people are spending more time in air conditioning that is to say indoors and one thing we know about this virus is spread more likely indoors among people who are stuck together for at least fifteen minutes or longer in an indoor space. Yeah, honestly like this idea of being indoors is something I've been thinking about. Because I'm looking ahead right and we're looking at the fall in the winter when you're going to have the exact same thing happening all over the country like more people forced indoors. That correlates with of course, the beginning of seasonal flu, circulating some people in the hospital. That kind of stuff right it's going to. We're going GONNA have both epidemics happening at once. It's going to be a real mess. Okay, let's talk a little bit about mortality or people dying from the disease, so the president and others have pointed out in the last few weeks that the numbers of people dying per day are down from early on in the pandemic, and that is true back in mid April. There were days where we had well over two thousand people dying each day, and in the last week or so the US is seeing more like hundred people dying every day on average, although that number seems to be rising again. Let's talk about a few reasons why that could be why we're seeing fewer deaths now than earlier right well, certainly, one of the biggest reasons is not the biggest reason that the death rates are so low now compared to the spring when New York City got clobbered as you recall is nowadays the viruses infecting mainly younger people, and they just frankly less likely to die in Arizona for instance of these days, half the cases are in people aged twenty to forty four years old and only. Only eleven percent of cases and people over sixty five, and of course people over sixty five, or really at the highest risk of death, and you know that that shift younger age groups is both good and bad. The good part diseases hitting a population that can more easily survive, though we should say some people do die should bad part is that the spread is accelerating and putting vulnerable people at higher risk, because now the virus is traveling far and wide and putting more older people and. And people with underlying health conditions in harm's way right and you know one thing to note though is that especially in the younger demographic? This is where we see a lot of the huge racial disparities up, basically which young people are surviving and dying a paper out of Harvard June showed that in this twenty five to thirty four age group, the mortality rate for black people was seven times more than for white people really matters. Who are the those young people are right? It absolutely does. Does the overall risk of death is very very low in this age group, but it does absolutely hit some people harder than others, particularly because more people of color are at risk for contracting the disease because of their jobs, they have to be out and about and also underlying health conditions may also be playing a role here. Yeah, so it appears more young people are getting sick. Fewer of them ultimately die, but to be clear. Young people do get very sick and die from the virus. So that's one reason we're seeing fewer deaths right now. Compared to the beginning of the pandemic as far as why the numbers of deaths don't seem to be matching up with the increase, in cases, yet is partially due to the fact that deaths are what we call a lagging indicator Derek Thompson at the Atlantic wrote a really nice piece on. This will make sure to put in. The episode notes for Richard Let's talk about that a little bit right. Yeah, it's a very plainly put. There's a gap in time between the day someone test positive until the day the either recover or unfortunately die, and then of course. Course there's another lag in which that death is reported health officials. So what you're seeing now. It really in-depth really reflects people who got sick. You know two or three weeks ago or even longer than that, so that's one reason why deaths have not followed in lockstep with a big spike in cases. Yeah, and then there's also this thing called lead time bias right right, and that's basically a phenomenon where data can make it seem like something new is happening, but actually just about how you're collecting. The data with the increases in testing. We've seen in these past few months. We may simply be detecting more this. This virus earlier in people than we did before, people may have been really sick and not get tested to the hospital now people are driving up in their cars right and doing okay, and so there earlier on in the course of disease, but that doesn't really change the percentage of cases that wind up being fatal. It will just take longer than it did early on in the epidemic for those fatalities to show up and of course Richard there a ton of complications that we didn't have time to get into more hospital capacity ventilators, so what sheep the hospitals in actually plays a role in who survives and who? Who doesn't and then you know even though there isn't a cure, of course, doctors have had more time to learn how to treat this disease, so we don't have a lot of data on this yet. In the United States, but it seems like perhaps more people are surviving this disease than right in the beginning right, I think that is clearly the case and you know as long as hospitals aren't totally overwhelmed with patients. They can make use of what they've learned so far to improve treatments. I'll give you just one example steroids which are used to reduce inflammation. Turn out to be quite useful in many instances. So Richard I'm curious like overall how you're feeling looking at where we are compared to. Let's say April, there are ways in which I feel like are a lot more prepared like we understand the virus. A little better were obviously farther along on a vaccine and some potential treatments, but we still don't have adequate testing. Cases are at an all time high. We're heading into the fall, which means we're GONNA, have this consolidation of cold and flu and corona season, plus the schools potentially opening up your really cheering me up here. But maybe the most concerning fig just to keep you just to keep you down. Richard is that I? Just don't feel like we are a country with like one central goal to fight this thing together. Yeah well I think. I would agree with that first off a corona virus vaccine is not going to help much at least not in this coming flu season. Even if one is amazingly enough approved by the end of the year, we'll take really a long time to vaccinate enough people to make a big difference. What really could help would be a good flu vaccine. I think only about half of Americans typically get the flu shot every year and public health officials say if they can dramatically increase that it would really help a lot against this sort of one two punch that we're going to have to be confronting. But you're right about the country, not working well together on this starting with leadership both at the federal level, and also tim states, but also including people who are ignoring all the guidance that's going all the good advice from scientists and people are hesitant to get vaccines because of misinformation. As for testing you know by the fall. There will be some help. I expect doctors offices should have a supply of Rapid Kobe tests. They're like rapid strep test, or whatever the aren't super accurate, but they can help relieve some of the testing bottleneck and sort of looking down the line a little bit farther. Scientists are also working on next generation of tests that you might even be able to do. Do at home and you know those might be ready sometime. Next year next year seems pretty discouraging, doesn't it? It's pretty far off, but you know I'm pretty well resigned to the fact that we're going to be in this for the long haul. covid nineteen is going to be with us for years so even technology that seems far off right now. We'll still be needed

"Economy has returned to growth in the second quarter of 2020 after being hit hard by the Corona virus figures suggest growth of more than 3% from the same period a year earlier. It means China, which is the world's second biggest economy, has avoided a recession. Mariko Oi says the figures were better than expected. It seems like all the stimulus measures that the authorities announced as the economy emerged from that look down seemed to be working, so factories are getting busier. We also saw industrial production numbers coming out up some 4.6% but one sector That still hasn't recovered as quickly as they had hoped is, retail sectors of retail spending is still down by some 2% and that will be the challenge for the authorities to get people to start spending money again.

Tokyo raises Covid-19 alert to highest amid spike in cases
"In Zurich Seven, twenty, two here in London Tokyo has raised its corona virus level to its highest in response to the number of cases, spiking the city's governor held a news conference, in which he held aloft a red and orange card to colors, which indicate the seriousness of the threat, but I'll Tokyo Bureau chief Wilson joins me now with more welcome back view now I'm tell us what's happening where you are. Yeah. That's right Governor Koi K. Yesterday. raise the level to the highest level to read I. Think for most people in Tokyo. It's very difficult to interpret. It's a really symbolic system of guidelines that really don't. They have no binding force I think what people are really looking at is how the infection numbers doing and the news just coming in now they'll be two hundred eighty around two hundred and eighty record to stay, which would actually be a record for Tokyo. So I think that's the number that people will be looking at I. Think the governor. Qweik's alert system has has honestly not been that helpful. Those people don't quite understand what it means. The guidelines came out in May originally. When when the state emergency was lifted, they were revised in June and it's partly to do with the shift in in in how the virus is is affecting people now the first wave of ours with affecting more older people this time it's younger people asymmetric. And what governor? Governor quick as saying what we really need to focus on now is. Can the health system coke? So that's what these guidelines are referring to it. Saying is the health system on depression, which it seems that it is, and she said that the trying to secure I think nearly three thousand. That's people who have mild symptoms ever. Do we know where this the spread of the disease is coming from? You mentioned the fact that it is young people now who are turning up with positive tests. Yeah I mean they've certainly be mentioning a lot about nightlife small balls. They been people working ball state. They've been co opted to making video. Saying this is how we're going to do business from now on. We're not drinking from the same bottle. I mean the mind boggles. That was going on anyway, but they've said that going to. Enforce these. Practices just so that customers surprise and there's been a cluster in certain areas of Tokyo. It's not just Tokyo. The areas around Tokyo that have. Always had a similar kind of. Trajectory for the virus Kinda go fight Chiba. And also all soccer in the fall west of Japan, so that that's one area, but they're also actually rather love untraceable infections that something I know, the Governor Koi case worried about so that's why she she said situation she she's referred to severe, and European, wouldn't be considered that the compared to numbers in Europe, but certainly hair it's it's considered pretty bad at the moment. No businesses as far as I can gather, have been asked to close and what you described. There are people not sharing bottles does sound rather. Astonishing, giving the level of sort of lockdown at the rest of the world is experiencing and still is experiencing. Is there a sense that now? The the the authorities in Tokyo are really getting in control of this thing, or is that still a sense is Estela gap between what should be done or anything? People think should be done what people are actually doing. Well. I mean there's always been this issue. That nothing is `binding in Intercon? It's always about advising people cautioning them asking them and what's happened. Is Japan that people are quite happy to do that? We don't see any of this problem with people refusing to end loss, there's not that people are extremely cautious. The the the sharing of book was I'm sure rating most people here as well so I think people have really really got hold of the situation. You know as a group among saying Tokyo if you look around everyone. The for example, people are very cautious to kind of being built in now. Kids about school, but they're all very socially distance wearing masks so that there is already built in I. Think you know what goes what happens from now is it's really difficult to predict because governor Taylor last month, said you know infections go by fifty a day. We'll have to think about dozing businesses again now. We're already at two hundred and eighty today so clearly. It's not that straightforward. It's a much more. More complex situation you know, how and as I said it's, it's different group of people now because the eysenck domestic, then not needing the hospital beds that were were really ought to pressure in April. When when the when the pandemic was was thought to peaks, actually so it slightly different situation. Now we're now also in a situation and the time when tourism should be really at the heart of what's happening in Japan. We should be in the middle of the Olympics notwithstanding but. The central government has. been trying to boost domestic, tourism. It's come up against some rather understandable opposition hasn't at namely from those who would be receiving visitors from the likes of Tokyo where there. Is this this this outbreak? Absolutely I mean that's a campaign called the go-to travel campaign which the government launched, it was supposed to be August actually that started, but they've brought it forward to twenty second of July which should have been the long weekend that launched the the Olympics. It was supposed to be a holiday weekend. We don't know the Olympics, but we still have the holiday weekend and she. Has Launched his campaign, which will basically encourage people to trouble ever Japan? They'll be heavily subsidized. You've got money back on travel hotels from September. You'll get voucher to spend wherever you go, so it's. It's really encouraging people to move around on the reaction. It'd be very bright, mixed some areas already welcoming it that that very keen to get travelers, but some places. It walked in the north of Japan where they've had no cases. Just said now is not the time, but then don't particularly wanting this to happen, so. It really varies from from prefect prefecture, but I think there's lots of nervousness and I can say that I have traveled a little bit in Japan and the last couple of weeks and I can certainly say that people are not about through to see anyone from Tokyo coming into rural areas at the moment. Even if you're masked up that that very concern Tokyo is, the numbers are much higher than anywhere else and the loss of concerned about people from Tokyo. Particularly traveling around the country, and what is it? Do you think that will reassure people that? There are calls for stronger testing measures and tracing measures to be carried out. Then both like I said that maybe one thing they do is they actually offer free tests? If not reassurance, people you know the to show that these tourists do not have a virus. I think it also shows that the pressure on Shinto be how difficult it will be opened the country up to. International travelers you know all the measurements really hard to persuade people to travel within Japan, so it is difficult, and and you know these number very public, and you know people will see the news today

Covid missteps in the UK
"Been seven months in sparse Johnson's conservative scored the best Tory parliamentary majority since the me nine thousand nine hundred. And yet outsiders well, that could be forgiven for thinking that it was Jeremy Corbyn Socialism. That's triumphed. You think about it in response to the Cova crisis, the size and scope of the British state. Well, that's increased dramatically, and what's being called, a radical woke minority that continues to march through British institutions for more on Boris and British politics. Let's turn to is a bill oak shop. She's a former political editor at the Sunday Times I started by asking bill about the state of Boris Johnson's premiership. I think that it is. Fair to say that Boris Johnson's. Administration has. Hit a really difficult patch and you know. Isn't it extrordinary when he achieved? An an unbelievable majority you know against all expectations, and really they only had a few weeks in which to relish that feeling of trial before the corona virus hits, and the handling of the pandemic has been a very widely criticized. You know we have ended up. I think we have the surge worst gas rate in the world from from Carina and his being one u-turn after another. We've got another one today in the only on Sunday at one of our leading cabinet ministers said that it would not be compulsory to wear face masks and short, and now we all told the we'll be illegal requirement, and that is very characteristic old the government's approach to this crisis. They've been too late. To make required changes, you know that has gizzard they have you turned, and of course not help by. The Prime Minister himself was hit very very hard by the virus, and to Cologne time to get back on his feet. You know this is a he. He was in a life, threatening position and the government woes consequentially very weakened for a period. You mentioned that the Johnson government is moving to make these face masks for shoppers mandatory I. THINK THEY FACE A. Hundred pound fine if they gotta shops without Feis mosques, but at the same time on way told the Britain is slowly getting back to its old self that businesses either reopened and travel restrictions. Lifting does all this main? The Brits are to learn to leave covid nineteen I think we have to learn to live with covid nineteen and I would say we should have had begun learning that lot quicker. You know the UK at the moment is a real place. Contrast I live in Oxfordshire about seventy miles from London, and for the first time last week I decided to get the train into loans, and I have been driving list time and I basically had to show the driven train in both directions. I was traveling at what would normally be rush hour peak time going in in the morning and I had the whole carriage, and the won't be on that myself, so I will. Say Small, but there's no need for face off. You've got your exclusive carriage. And Central. Is Much the same. It's a dead zone and yet here in the world's where where I call home and we can mind. It'll town which luckily. was absolutely housing. The big AUDEN's with school. There were a lot of people out in the bounce. So you know we have a real mix pitcher going on by the way, remember that the schools on back. You know this is an extraordinary situation. You know we've got people in big Ordonez in restaurants are. Our children are still not back in school by large. The counterargument to not having that lockdown during April, and my is that you might have seen far more deaths in in Britain it's. It's very lucky for the government that however bad things get. They will always be able to say it would be much worse if we hadn't done. X Y, or said they won't be able to cruise otherwise politically. That is something that they can always fall back on, but I think that all the evidence now shows that it was a big mistake to allow tens of thousands of people every week to continue pouring into the country from some of the worst hit areas overseas. Coming into Heathrow without any checks or any corentin or any restriction.

Rakish charm warm personality or cool hard to impress persona. I'm GonNa say warm personality. Wow COMING UP. I would say everyone's obsessed with you. I say for you.

A king-sized almonds studied chocolate Bar a Sorbet or cherries jubilee. I don't Really Know What Cherries Jubilee is. I'M GONNA look it up for just so now. Dodging Cherry tart kind of thing.

Take five take fives are the Best Candy Bar Cherries Jubilee. A Dessert dish made with cherries in the cooler which is subsequently flown. Baid and commonly accepted the sauce organized crime. So it's like Oh fancy sauce thing. I'm never had it so I'm not GONNA BE THAT. I'm going to go with the chocolate almonds because I love chocolate and ice cream and I do love sorbet but I feel like if it was like an ice cream versus I feel like I would still do like the chocolate okay. I'm GonNa go with cupcake then because I do love a cup good cupcakes. There's this one cupcake that I used to eat at the dining hall which I mean. Obviously I can't go there anymore warranty but it was like it was a German chocolate cupcake and it had like coconut in the middle of it and then on the top added chocolate covered almond really good. We should do a poll on who likes coconut. Who DOES NOT CAUSE? Aw I don't like it okay. We got annoyed girl with a comb. What is your biggest hair annoyance? My hair always getting tangled. My hair flops. In my eyes curly hair takes a lot of words my option for I wish my hair thicker. I'm very low maintenance in general but it does definitely take a little bit of work for me not anymore because actually I little sister Lizzie gave me a quarantine haircut but before that it was definitely my hair flops in my eyes. Yeah definitely that. You're always hearing the Justin Bieber not. Oh Wow have you ever pranked someone. No I tried to but I'm back. I am the worst pregnant hugh I feel. All that mechanical prego so much like remember. When you get those things might the White House and store and you'd like put like fake. Pooh on the floor and you put like toilet seats that sprays you the gum that sprays you know as a trick prankster. Yeah so I'm definitely going to say when I'm not pranking. My siblings I'm pranking. I'm definitely a prank. I'm GONNA put no. I tried once but I'm very bad at pranks so this is kind of a demonstration. Actual is here but it's not really kinda like pregnancy was also like me just not being trickier Negi. 'cause when I'm my game and I was like hiding in the closet. That was gonNA come out and scare them because they I was supposed to be in jail. Or whatever like not trapped in the closet like and. I tried to sneak out and I tripped over my bench and like this. You drag it and I can just not sneaky to save my life also. I put my best friend. I put vaseline door handle one. Time did not work out. She totally shouldn't she was like it was so it's not not very good and we tried to go in there and put her in hot water to see if she'd wet the bed but then. I kept the. She woke up because he talks in her sleep. Sometimes she's like and so then. I got really scared and runaway. Sounds kind of pretty but I guess you bring people next question. Can you complete this sentence? Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent. How you deal with it whether you have money or not being prepared for it or not sweating the little stuff. I'M GONNA say not sweating the little stuff because I'm pretty good at doing that. I'm going to say how you deal with it. 'cause it's always your sponsor situations that's really important. I think.

"Sneeze this 'cause it and is going to stay in here for the rest of the day and you're gonNA cost the house. My Lord is so yes cass. She got her ending. She made friends with Rapunzel again. She came back to life. I got yeah I guess she kind of did. She literally came back to La in like a metaphorical sentence. But I guess she surely did. I wonder if she's GonNa those books now. Like heaven is real. I died for Thursday. Cast is going to be an awesome. I feel like castle. Not Be a good writer though. The patient is what I was GONNA say. I'm perfect But yeah she even had a little nice note with Eugene so she got off to a very friendly ending and then she wrote away on on her horse for Vanilla. Didn't know whether wait that means. Max and Fidel are separated. I'll know the romance broken up. Y'All terrible like yes. Cast had to leave repairs on her destiny. But what if maximum does destiny was to be together and then the human separated them babies? You know that actually. I kind of liked that because it means that one day cast will come back to the Kingdom because maximum fidel will need to see each other. So there's a reason for her to return Fidel's like one laws visit my see boo but So do you. I know you have your favorite idea of what casts does after she leaves to find ourselves so I saw her goal is to find herself right. Like that's what she said. It's not necessarily that. She doesn't want to be in the Kingdom. It's that she doesn't know what she wants exactly and so she wants to find out where she blogs where she she. River Coronas like puzzle or pencils home ground and she wants to find her own place. Would you agree with that yes? She hasn't found the place that I think is that she hasn't found out her younger within herself yet so she needs to think and good way. We'll have that Paul by so you think what effect that would make you more confused because you don't have time to think about yourself when you're busy thinking about all these new places. I wanted to find herself. She should just lock herself in a closet for a few days except like when you go to university if you go somewhere else because really important to go away and be really independent because it helps you really really become with yourself and think about yourself and like how do I work. How like how can I put my time so I can work? Must've been like just give all the personality like this wasn't Castro Independent. Loa this whole season though because she was just on her own or did Wall she was Ontario like do all the cooking the cleaning she was under bad influence. Though Abedin's Linton I feel like she wasn't she doesn't like the South as they about. The destiny is Ontario. One I think about. I guess that's one of the things that I'd take a little issue with like. She is susceptible to that influences. And she just spent all this time alone with this evil person in your head and it seems like senator on her own to like random places is just a recipe for disaster. Like she's GonNa find on tier two point. Oh and I get taken and again I mean she kind of she kind of is because she doesn't know what she wants and that mentions very easily led and influenced but didn't you let us in the last. I don't know I've never found out we. Will you know We'll we'll we'll talk about what the future holds in terms of actual content at the end. So I know you have a theory about where cast goes or where she ends up at least dealing spell it out for not pronounce the name in Navarre. Yeah she goes to the warrior woman kingdom like hey that offer better so stand Yaw. And then she becomes their captain of the guard or they're like training in charge person at night. I like the should have observed trading academy father warriors so she could like help run that or something like she loves like very few most center can she loves like pushing people do their best and like dude very physically active things And the so I really enjoy. That was always her dream and then re puzzle kind of twisted change. That dream was like so I think she tantrum for awhile. Okay let's have a little segment where we're going to do a mock interview role play. So you're GONNA be Cassandra when she has an interview. Because it's your idea that showed up so you're you strident Ingvar. And I am the person interviewing you for the job. So your name is Cassandra. Is that right yes? Do you have a last name? Casandra filling but I have a face returned. Accept anyone with bottom in their last name. I can change it. Sure enough to enough. So Cassandra I hear that you have been on a villainous streak lately. Is that correct? I was just getting more in tune with my inner. I hear you a defeated by Princess. Not Strong enough to overcome now. I was her long hair. I was defeated by an intern demon. That's understandable I suppose I try. Is it true or not true that you tried to trap this ancient demon in a birdcage wasn't a very and it was magical rock. I see and are you still able to make that magical rock nine. That's a shame we used all right last question What is more important friendship or power? You've got the job misbalance south I think I think cast learned a little bit like she still wants. She wants to find out her own destiny and follow that destiny but she also recognizes the value of friendships. And that turn away those friendships just to chase power. Now do you. Do you think she'll ever come back to grow ticket together. Very very you mean you mean you mean to get together to get together. No Anna very in casts are not going to be things no no. She's like his inspiration. His Goth fashion big sister like mentor kind of role. I was thinking of twelve. No He's not he's like sixteen now fourteen and he's like twenty five thirty she's like nineteen and I was thinking of Erica. Pinson popper when she goes deliver dream but then she realizes that the laws with the man of the game so I know for so long and then he like helps save her. I mean you know. I'm not one for age gap love but I mean help. Save her life and tell her to be evil in does. Now no she. She leaves and then like the next day. She is back into town very that song. You saying nothing left to lose have been seen. Hamanaka myself all of my one day trip and made me realize that I can be apart from voices and Jelly. Yes welcome home. Casandra your background. You come into my mom's science to gather. We have chemistry. Oh you and me well rule to Kinda take over corona for only turn it. He wouldn't do that would he? Respect for Eugene even if cast sm see. That's what. I wonder if tacit Ashbury the team up instead of just like kidnapping him do you think he would have have thought about it for my questions asked him if he had a loan.

"These. Google Well guys I guess. I didn't write it down. But I know it. This is the episode where Pennzoil and cure and Catalina unvarying are all trapped in the little thing and so they have a lot of funny moments together. I remember yeah I liked all the SAS. That care was giving. Yeah Dwayne like he was a funny guy steal anything again. If you if you remember what Rapunzel said definitely tweet us like woop is just something backward or doom is just. I duNNo. It was something really funny and positive like stupidly positive. It was very memorable it is. It's been a while this aired in October of last year. Yeah so. They're the animals after that the tenth episode. Be Very Afraid. I think wait was this. This was not the midseason this. Oh okay this was the one where the this is a weird one. Where CASSANDRA had like the new strain of rocks made people see their worst fear. Awesome Song you know better. You'll Bergara out of his big solo in this episode Not My favorite song. But I love the little Animated shows animated but this was a particularly animated song with everyone seeing their fears. And everything I I don't know I don't remember. This'll be particularly one of my favorites and like the rocks. Never come back and get cat here on every now and dump it on me after lots of Catholics. Be Okay after that. Oh We got Pascal Dragon. This one was also pretty crazy Dragons are reeling. I mean we knew mermaids were real so I mean everything is real in Corona. I wonder if as Mermaid called teach. This is a cute one. I mean pal. You remember to sorry when her canned or Hoke foot fell in love with said merv thinking of I wonder if together craziness so pascal meets his baby dragon friend and then the dragon grows up and he has to decide between the his new friend pass. Does he name the Dragon? I Dunno big little big guy right something like that is a wacky episode. I I didn't love it that much but it was kind of fun seeing Pascal Into Dragon. I think Chris like explains parallels between like what was going on the story at the time and just this little like moment that Pascal shared between little bit Guy Himself. There was like some interesting stuff. Going on all So yeah I mean next. Up is the twelfth episode islands apart this was the one where Rapunzel Nujaine get a message from owl. I think this is the first time. Owl comes back. I keep using the show since Cassandra left And he basically tells them that some. Something's going on on the island of the lorgues those wonderful and the captain of the Guard who went to look for Kosan no he went to look for Pun Elliott. He went to look for puzzle when the king was taken over by variant. I think and then he found out about chaos or did he already find out about cussing he was going to cost confronted cast member and then she was like he tried well he he went to look for her and she's like go out for you. Okay I'M GONNA go out on the silent and so he hides on the weird magic island and makes a weird creepy version of casts. This was a coup up so because of how creepy like the little cast was like Rapunzel is convinced she was going to murder someone like they were standing on the edge of the cliff. Remember really throw it was Kinda cool. How creepy it was And it was interesting seeing how the CASTORAMA affected not only Rapunzel by her father who I mean is closer to her than Rapunzel arguably because he's known her longer any raised her really hard for him and it was. It was funny at the end scene. All the different versions of cast fighting and like I think one of talk trash Eugene like oh I thought you two would be broken up by now so that was fun and then this with a long haul then after this. We have the midseason finale. I think maybe not is wait. Cassandra's revenge wasn't that the mid season finale August. She clearly doesn't know I think it probably was. I WANNA say So basically re puzzle feels ready to settle down. And she's back in her normal live. And then Cassandra finally makes it back to corona after all this time and this is when they have their big battle. This is when we get nothing left to lose. I believe it is the midseason trolley. Oh Yeah Yeah and we get the girl who has everything in this episode to okay. Focus Focus said to girl who has everything well when he wears this ring then Have a singing this on the drive. There's like a three hour drive from my school back home and I literally just put on my musical playlist and I was like horse by the end of the jobs. My voice sounds weird. That's why this episode I. The songs were amazing varian and having that do wet was just incredible. I like who? She just handed me something garage. Does anyone else have a cat? Who LIKES TO LAYING CLOSETS? Because it's do people have cats in corona. Have we ever seen a cat? I encourage member the cats and kitties half the series overrun with captain.

"We were talking to Bruce about it he was like I love it. Like and just you know having having such a A great actor and performer and again like Julia Anne Sarah who cast him we were able to cast him as our as our father. I mean it just was. It just was perfect. It was just perfect. Everybody in the show who was cast it just nobody. Nobody wasn't exactly who they were meant to be. Yeah we're going to be respectful of your time. Do you have about fifteen more minutes. Sure absolutely also trying to get in some speed around. Maybe for you did you. I guess you've kind of already talked about you. Like working on this story. Centric episodes more than the one officer. So that's that's that seems to be a little bit of a conversation online and all I'll address it a little bit to say that if you look at the show now we did have we. Did I want to say that? Altogether out of seventy something episodes that we did you know with the shorts and everything. I feel like we only did maybe three episodes that were stand alone and by that. I mean every episode that we approached to me when we were going to them I would always ask the writers. Like what is this have to do with what's happening? With Rapunzel or Cassandra in the big picture like how is this even though it's not Republicans problem how is this? How is this related to what's happening in in a good example is now that we can kinda talk about it freely? A great example is passed gals dragon right. So if you look at past cows dragon is it's about him and his friend and ultimately when you look at it through the Lens of season three you look at it through the lens of of the finale. It's a story about Pascal. Having to say goodbye to his friend yeah like it is the finale the foreshadowing its complete foreshadowing. So when everybody talks about these episodes about like oh it didn't have anything to do with the plot aid to tell you. It had everything to do the plot. But if you look at them as individual episodes in look like what's happening in the plot and what's happening with Rapunzel on the and the Sandra in moonstone anything about Rapunzel and CASSANDRA's relationship or Cassandra or Rapunzel in her father's relationship like all of these individual things not all of them again. We had a few kind of outliers. But but here's here's a character Pascal. Who has a very important friendship that he you know? There's part of him in the in the Dragon. And there's part of the dragon in him. You know if you think about Casandra. And he had to get to a point where it was more important for him to you. Let that go. Because the the dragons place wasn't with him for whatever reason it's not like it's not one to one of like Casandra was dangerous or anything or it could but his his place was out in the world and I wanted to start giving things I wanted to start laying breadcrumbs throughout the season of what we were saying. So you know I always when I when I when I would when I would see discussions after an episode would would air about like. I didn't like it because it didn't have anything to do with the story. I'm like you just wait like I didn't WanNa say anything But there is such a larger story happening here and it just would have been. It would have gotten boring if we had just talked about puzzle. Cassandra because there were so many other characters to talk about but the question became like what we're all of these characters struggling with that related to what Rapunzel was was was was dealing with so that was kind of the magic of of the of the of the of the standalone episodes. They weren't standalone. Is that the part of the large large story. I I always hate when people talk about so-called filler episodes because I feel like every I mean is like just hanging out with the character. You're getting character development. I mean not everything can be you know. A finale yeah. Those those became opportunities to be able to strengthen of viewpoint of whether it was Cassandra or Rapunzel Every episode that we that we we told we looked at as opportunities to restate the Thesis Statement. That you know. Sometimes you're places home and sometimes you're places away. You know what was happening in my house at the time certainly around the beginning of season End of season. Two going into season three was that my daughter was graduating. High School Right. And so what you know my wife and I were able to go on their senior trip so we like all the seniors. Go get on the plan and everything I and it's a private school and it's K. Through twelve and these these kids had all kinds of grown up together like from kindergarten all the way through being a senior and we had we spent like three or four days with them and in Hawaii in the last night it was just so it was just so like the kids didn't even see it but I'm sitting here watching these kids around a fire and they're going around talking like what their best memory was. It struck me. I started like weeping because it struck me that this night was the last time that this group would ever be together ever because the next day somewhere get on a flight to go back home and so we're GonNa go continue and so we're going to stay and they had already graduated like this was it. This was the last time this group of kids would ever be together as a group and And they were going to go off into their own. Lives go to college. They were going to go across the country. And we were just on the on the cusp of telling you know singing. That big song with With rapunzel an Eugene in Cassandra now more than ever you know where they start singing about There's nothing I wouldn't do without you by my side and it was so it was so poignant to me because maybe up until this point eight and again like my daughter's best friend you know here's my daughter in her best friend thinking that they're gonna be together for the rest of their lives and I know that they're not. I know that her friends going to go to college. And she's going to get another best friend and they're just going to go about their lives and it was so real to me and I wanted to make sure that that sentiment of like you may think that this is how your life's going to be for the rest of your lives but it is never going to be just three of you ever again and that's okay you know it's making me like like choke up right now thinking about it but it's okay because life just happens and you just you just adjust and sometimes it's comfortable and sometimes it's not and and It just you know there's the show and there's the mythology and there's the characters and all this stuff but here I wasn't a very real situation watching an actual watching actual friends say goodbye to each other in a way that they couldn't even understand. Yeah so it was important for me to take that sentiment. Then go back to work and shove a lot of that stuff in You know into into the things and into these episodes in into these characters and you know I always say like I mean the most when they're when they're real true stories more where moral for a Disney show too. I think having seen the bitter sweetness of Knowing that you can still love and care for your friends but their best the way they can be the best their best self is not necessarily staying with you all the time and learning to let go. Percents I think Hunter said and then if you look at poor poor rapunzel home who all of season three was just screaming like comeback. Yeah just will be better if you just come back. And I knew the whole time like Rapunzel. She's never gonNA come back like it can't be that way. You're being selfish by asking her to put her life Rapunzel. You're being selfish if you think Cassandra is going to put her entire future on hold for you. And that's what we're puzzle had to learn. Listen sometimes it's not about you. Yeah don't come you know. She was saying come back. We'll just make everything good if you just come back and be my lady waiting. Are you kidding.

"Our next stop is anywhere is our next stop is Hewitt and Wvu doesn't have an English name Plu wet and blue translates to. There is more in you. I don't think there is though about cast their share the court rotten teeth. What we literally no. That's not true because she's tried to reach out twice now you know she doesn't do it though and you know what they say. Third Time's The charm. No she she literally destroyed her best friend's house so there's no. Hey I mean you go to your best friends house. You have a wild party. You Destroy Entire Town. She wanted to do. Some redecorating was overdue and the townspeople. We all know. Do not like rebuilt just give it is redecorated through destruction. I just I just thought of another scene from the episode when the ladies telling her like you think these are flowers Biz. Flaws do now. It was the the handmade in the replacement handmade in his funny. I wish we'd seen more of her weight out. What happened her own. Worst cast killer. She go although I guess. I wonder why she came back to the castle out what was happening. What happened to her? I'm sure cast just hazards safely out of the way somewhere buried ten feet under even thought about that either. She went back did she. Maybe she wasn't from the count. Maybe she went back to the farm or something. Maybe just caught and was like. Hey you're not good at this. You WanNa you WanNa like you want me to take over for you in the goes like yes. Please soclean bossed around by Old Lady crowd. So Plymouth envy the plot is Rapunzel and her friends must take krona. Back from Cassandra and finally confront the Evil Zone. Teary ooh that but the sleepless agenda tie. The short is wife No. They deserve each other though funny. If they came riding into the carriage together shorty was like wearing a little evil crown. Probably be like I'll come to your side if you give me cheese or something dumb like that. That's not dumb. He's hungry your money. All their food stores like two days after that artist started the journey. He's clearly is a jerk. He's he's hungry. Pub Thug called them. The pub thugs in this episode. Was funny all right. Well that was the last time we'll get to say until next stop. Is that anywhere actually? It's not because we're gonNA let like I said this is not the end We'll be doing some more episodes about tangled. And maybe some interviews. You never know head teaser. Teaser HINT HINT. But next week we will be back for the series finale. The I think it's like sixty six minutes or something some at Super Long. It's three episodes long so yeah like basically episodes immigrants victims of crime so much. I need us back here for the final episode. We're GONNA shed some tears. We've got a hope finally deal. Casado once and for all saying that time. So that chair. You can continue the conversation with us in the meantime on twitter at Corona.

"Guy Literally. Eugene freed him saved his life and then instead of he literally leaves him to drop I mean. Brock does not seem like a great guy. Yeah and they were. They didn't really say like stopped being crime. They said like make your own name like means something brock. I want to see you back here. And this three years in your own name interesting. Yeah I don't know brock did not. I did not like him because he did. Make some really bad moral choices but it was funny to have another person as almost as egotistical is Eugene who would kind of banter back and forth with him. I thought well pencil did a good job of like saving people though and you know it was like yeah. She usually does most of the savvy. I like to that. I'm like way to get rid. Some Credit Cisse's saves the well. She's good it'd be too busy. I think but So what were your overall thoughts about this to finish things off. I liked it but I I feel like I get it in. Contribute that much to the main plot I had some character development like. I'm sure we'll see like Eugene. Like acting in captain of the guard that will play some role in defeating casts Because obviously the real captain of the Guard Earth. The former capital of the guard could Civil to the task and I understand that. So I guess that's kind of why we got this episode. But it's it's getting down to the wire like for the end of the season or the end of the show really and like. I don't know how it's that with casts and Santeria and all that stuff so I don't know I'm getting nervous about how they're going to end it. I hope they don't rush it all together too much. The final episode is like like over an hour long so yeah yes I did this episode because it focused on Eugene definitely gave him something to do and kind of showed him a path forward which He's he's a pretty important character. He hasn't gotten a lot of important. Like serious storylines by best. I feel like so. I thought it was a nice episode in that respect but I did think that I would have liked it more without that whole dream sequence at the start because not really set it up for me to think it was going to be more focused on the captain. And CASSANDRA 'cause I I mean it's his daughter and there's some serious I mean emotional drama. They could explore the hair between his job and his daughter in like there he does near. Yeah I don't know I feel like that's a interesting thing to show and I mean I guess we kind of talked about that in the island episode but yeah you like. He sacrificed his job. He's like been so good at for years and and it was weird too because cassange always said she wanted to be captain of the guard and so him stepping down. And then giving it to you. Jean just feels like I dunno like a slap in the face to her away while she is like a villain right now and trying to attack the kingdom. So Will Ya. But I feel like it'd be nice if he stayed as captain brought her back and then promoted her to captain at the end or something gene will switch over if she ever comes back and he can trust her again. But yeah solid episode. I feel like I feel like now. I can't she ever be captain of the guard. Like I would be scared to ever as count on the guard. Like if another like magical being duped. Her tricked her. Got Her under. Its spell like how like. She could really destroy. He'd have a lot more effectively if she was cat car. So I guess it just depends on how in control she is of her own actions like we know that she's been misled because she doesn't know it's on teary because puzzle hasn't told her and yeah but we don't. We don't really know how how much of her own willpower is less. That's true okay. Well our next stop isn't anywhere. Our next stop is wait for for our next stop is once a handmaiden. The this is the second to last episode in the whole show once a handmade disguised in a magical cloak. Cassandra sneaks into corona with the intention of making amends with reponse. Oh what what. People are the whole plot. Why did you read that interesting? What role the last chance to make amends? Gospel Ghost episode. Feels like Cassandra? Yeah why would she want to make amends? After that sh she must find out. Who's out to release tell telegram so by the way like a little like a bird carries a note there by the way how can tell her? I'll tell you that's interesting. It sounds like it's going to be more like her getting back in her old role you know in disguising kind of revisiting what her life alliance and then if she does join their side but in the episode that would mean that you'd be able to fight the final battle against Santeria an anterior probably control a deer and various dad. And all of them. So they'll be on the opposite side and it'll be probably pretty epic battle. Listen good battle songs. Maybe route for you. Cassandra's dad couldn't find her. What do you think about various fighting his baby very attitude that he lost his dad for so long and then he finally got him back and I feel like he wouldn't risk hurting him in any way? Yeah Yeah I could see him like restraint his dad though like tied him up or something for Tub. Kelly came back to himself. Yeah Yeah and real real quick before we go speaking very. He looked so God this episode. When I should happen you had the block kind of shot running down his face. Look I was Kinda glad that Lance Kinda got some payback with not being able to here for a while because I was kind of funny gene opened up to their smiling and variables like Elliot. And he's like why. Why so he could have lost. Someone's thought John. Yeah so he. He needed to have everybody well. We will see what next week for episode of the show.

Anyway what is the title of the next episode for us to look forward to next up anywhere is a tale of two sisters? We were looking forward to that one based on the title I really hope the aunties vacuum it oh boy. Rapunzel and CASSANDRA investigate mysterious stories of Gotha Ghost haunting cast. His childhood home. Sounds so awesome. Sounds like it could get a little creepy. I always like when they do their creepy ghost stories. I wonder if they investigate together or separately. I doubt it. It'd be Kinda Cook they did. I can see one where they both go to investigate but they start on different sides of the House and they keep getting closer and closer to each other and then when ghost appears they meet who goes is going to be so creepy. She was so creepy in life. Like as go. She's just going to be like twenty times creep here yet. Do you think it's going to be her actual ghost or is it just going to be or something and there's a lot of magic in the shows? I guess we're talking monkeys and shape shifting. Yeah I don't know like bringing back Gotha. Her actual ghost for real cast is GONNA ask her. Why did you leave me? Why didn't you lock me in Attala? Mother? Please oh my gosh well. I'm definitely GONNA look forward to that next week but until next time don't forget to be compassionate or don't If you want to get done house good issues compassionate nurse kind of Sweet Win.

"At Coronas borders and she's got a cool new outfit. Yes her cool are is made from the Block Rock. So it's super durable. But I have to wonder exactly how She moves in it if it's made from rock. It's like flexible rock. I wonder how how like how come the is that. Like when she's sitting down she's literally sitting on a rock. I also loved like Eugene's Dad being back that he was still there and Republicans. Like so worried about Eugene. Finding out about The surprise party. She's planning because the dad let her know what day is actual birthday was and how he's actually turning and he's like. I didn't even think about it around him just to make sure that he wouldn't signed down the crazy crow. Dodd is back in his still. Has that quirk where he says what he's thinking like when he's like okay. Come to hi Fi Frederick. Yeah he's such a such a silly billy he in Frederick would get along really nicely now. That Frederick loosened up a bit My goodness I wonder. I wonder when his crow crow ever lays an egg about Frederick's GonNa Steal it his collection you won't have to steal it. He'll just the criminal. Just give it to them coming back to when they were trying to keep you gene for Friday. Doubt about the party and stuff. I love That landslide caught on so quick to repentance. Hint like Oh get him out of here. Give him like a a list to do for this fake party that were like coming up with. Keep him from finding out the real deal and lance was just so funny about his his list and like getting everything on less exactly right and it was just really funny. I really enjoyed that little moment. They had together. I was a little confused on. If that was a list of things. They actually need it or was it just a random list that she had lying around just randomly. I'm pretty sure it was actually for the party because I thought I saw some like a few of the items were party related like balloons or something but then almost it was like singer Song. Well maybe maybe she anticipated having to get Eugene out of the way and so she wrote it up ahead of time. Maybe it may be. So what do you think about the kind of the setup for the episode being that it's Eugene Party? I liked it. I like that. You Gene Eugene he no. He loves talk about himself. And so it was like the cake was of his face and everything I thought that was so funny And it was really really interesting how they all hung up about his age. Yeah that'd be so interested. I thought I was wondering how you feel about that because we always talk about how funny their age gap is in. He confirms that he is officially twenty six today. His really feeling his age. He's like wow. I mean imagine scary. That'd be to realize like your your life like your days are already so numbered and then being like wow. I have a whole less year of life than I thought I would have. I wrote down. It reminds me a lot of if you read the book the candy makers by Wendy Mass it reminds me a lot of daisy because she the same thing happens to her basically she finds out. She's a year older than she was in so she finds out that she missed her big like official teenage coming of Age Party. So a just a year might not sound like a big realization. It does mean that all your milestones off. Yeah that is Kinda. That's very weird and I was. I was lucky kind of annoyed because they always get interrupted like right before like right before they can answer so like Republicans like just about pose and then like cast bursts. It and I was like no because at the coronation like very similar happens where she liked. Can't really answer because Fillon pops in so I just what I wanted to be? Like right after Poza where he says yes and then cast can come in as like I was so close. But but how do you feel now? That Eugene's ages officially confirmed as twenty six. Well he acts like he's too so balances out kind of funny because we've always talked about that and then they give like this like Yup. Okay you want to know how this all the. It's a surprise to him too. I thought it was really sweet though his dad knew about it and kind of planned planned So he could officially give them real birthday. But I'm kind of didn't tell us what day it is. It would have been kind of Nice to know so we can celebrate you know as a Fan community like in January twentieth or something. I mean I guess we can say that it's the day the episode came out which would be January twenty. Sixth Twenty fifth. Isn't that twenty today. Oh my goodness so. Eugene is a January Baby. Oh that makes sense though. It came out on the twenty six piece turning twenty six thousand good schedules things the way they do. I guess so kind of makes sense in this case the twenty sixth of January. Okay but yes right right on time to spoil the engagement which we kind of predicted as a funny thing remember we were like will you marry me and then. Casandra like no. If it's Herbert cazar ruined everything. I'm wondering so she comes in and she's like swell party guessing. My invitation lost in the mail. How Long Do you think she workshop? That expect there to be a party when she burst editor. I mean I feel like she probably surveyed the scene a little bit. I was Kinda confused. They seemed like so surprised that she came to corona. But why didn't they expect to come to corona? I mean. She obviously had beef over puzzle at? She's big odd for Bud. So obviously I would think it'd be logical. They expect you to show up sooner or later. Will I mean they were probably trying not to? I mean it's not something you really want to think about and after it's been months so I feel like if she was gonna come back they would expect her to come right back but since she stayed away for so long they probably were just trying to put it out of their minds. I mean obviously all their attention was on this part is you don't really think about you know that happening at that time. Cast you perfect. I like to think that she planned it on purpose. So that she could ruin Eugene's birthday his birthday was maybe she did. Maybe the ghost told her. Maybe I really loved Lances Little Bit with the popcorn. Two dollars funny. I'm glad you said that 'cause I screened to that and I tweeted out. This is all of us today. Yep Very humorous yet but the whole first confrontation does not really go at all. How I expected it costs. Just kinda walks in and she slices herself a piece of cake and she even shuts the door on her way back out. Yeah she's very neat and tidy. It was yeah. I was not expecting that at all. I mean it. Wasn't it really a standard kind of villain reintroduction expected at least slam the door? You know I think she shouted pretty pretty normally. Yeah it was. Kinda weird how she said. Oh you know there's only like You know ex cons to advise you now and I thought that was kind of a weird line because reponsible has parents who are royalty to advise so I was like what do you mean like. She's still not like a lot of like wise people router to advise it. I was just kind of a weird weird lying. And then she says lance she says the only advisers you have left are ex convicts and losers but I thought it might have been a better line to say ex convicts and children because reading angry. You seem to be in the inner circle. Now that's true that's true and technically to land said that ever been convicted of anything that everyone caught to be convicted. That was funny and I also thought it was funny when Eugene Votes. He needed to clarify whether you felt that he had to clarify that. He did not wish for cast to come back did he was that secretly. His wish they collaborated yeah. I thought it was interesting. That after last week's incident with the moisturizer he has this whole age. Dilemma TALKS ABOUT NEEDING. A skin tightening serum. Yeah I just felt bad for me. He's only twenty cents makes.

Speaking of the Hud's I'm really excited about the new Milan movie coming out the trailer. Really good okay. Now they've got that way CASSANDRA's revenge. is the double-leg midseason finale. It was written by Ricky Roxburgh and story boarded by Anna. Leoni Caitlyn Ridder Windy Sullivan and Kuni. Tomita and it was directed by Tom. Caulfield and Shane's Alvin it. Also features two new original songs from Alan Menken. Ooh So let's Start by kind going through and talking about what we thought so. The episode opens up with this really beautiful like instrumental music. It's a lovely day birds chirping and flying over the city and then at least I know I paused for you. You interrupted me go ahead. I just loved the opener and the song so much. It was just a tangled tangled at. It's finest and you better tell everyone where you watched this episode so that I can publicly. Shame you for it. I wash my own guys. I've a very very nice screen. And it's not super small phone and the we I live out in the country and my phone gets better connection than my laptop so That's why I have to watch on my phone. I don't accept that. No one should ever watch anything longer than like a ten minute youtube video on their phone if you are someone who watches like a full length. Tv Like hour-long special or a movie on your phone. There is something wrong with you. Well someone's screaming. Lord Judgmental Today The opening song we start right off with the girl who has everything I thought it was a pretty nice on. It wasn't super memorable like I don't really remember how it goes but I do remember what it was about. And it was a good song to set up. You know that proposals the super privilege. Princess has everything she's ever wanted. I loved how she was doing her art and like the art was coming to life during the saw it was just so magical and I just love the opener. All the color is in disrepair like back in her positive like mindset being so happy and laid off but it was definitely like wow I can see why cast like has a bone to pick with you yes. It wasn't important song to set up. How costs about it and Since we learned last episode it's been months since all the Castro. The happened makes sense while pencils back to normal sunny so yeah there was a light in the song that I thought was kind of funny. Because it almost sounded like S- I mean kind of sounded like she was friends. Doni new gene in a way even though they're like obviously dated and stuff but it was just kind of funny 'cause she was like. Oh I love all my friends especially you gene. Like he was just a friend and I just made me laugh a little bit because I was like but sounds like he's not really the like more important to you than regular friend who was just. Kinda funny and I love. She had one of her and her mom and her aunt and I loved it when she and her aunt got to have a dry together. I missed that spunky aunt so I was glad they included her in the beautiful portraits. I'm glad you mentioned that because I wrote that down to is like the two. I really liked with ant. And then the one with red and angry and Eugene lands and how at first they were like enemies and then they were friends. I love how animations that she was Illustrating just Kinda came to life two. It was really cool and then I really like the thing I like most about the song is that lady Old Lady. Crawley apparently heard it and kind of hums to herself as she's walking down the hallway. Yeah that was pretty funny and then you gene to confront her and ask. She thinks it's the right time to propose and she says that she's Eugene is not her time I love how Eugene is so So nervous about it. Because he's been turned down twice now that he will literally ask Old Lady Crawley just to give himself some more confident he has no idea. If it's the right time this point yeah and like you and I totally called the proposal things like I think I can't remember. I know he predicted that. What of them would propose again in the next episode before the season's over and I was right for Rapunzel was thinking of proposing herself so I was. I was happy that we kind of predicted that a little bit and I think it was really cool that she wanted to propose on his birthday. Twist that she was. GonNa do it because I mean after turning him down twice. It is kind of on her. I feel like He. Honestly it's the NFL of a weird move for him to propose a third time after being turned down twice. I feel like I feel like you should get the hint that it's going to have to be heard to make the next move after you know getting turned down but and I kind of love it. 'cause I think repentance it'd be a little bit untraditional and be like yes. I want to ask you now Just kind of turned the tables on him. And it's funny because in our family There's been three different women in my family who have proposed to their spouse so I thought it was kind of funny but yeah I liked. Tally was having her make kind of that. Fido move be like. Hey we need to tie this. Not so yeah. What did you think of the ring she picked up? I thought it was really cool Then after that little intro song cuts away and shows US CASS and she has finally arriving.

"That Zachary Levi actually voices. Feld spar which I did. Not You told me. Yeah those really funny. I hope they Iraq together before the show is over. It's kind of like Alex Hirsch for voices like a lot of different characters on gravity falls. Not just concl- Stan. Yeah but like he voices Eugene like the handsome rugged prints and then he's also fell the most annoying humid in corona. Now I think Uncle Monty's the most annoying and least her upon zone rubber woodfold votes for votes for eats the meat and then he chews swallows. It comes back and he keeps chewing. It was like a cow to God. a few more things. I had down about this episode. I really liked the hot air. Balloon is just the default method of travel now seems like in Corona. Yeah very fitting. Since we're puzzle loves like the floating lanterns. Now she kind of gets to be on a floating lantern and float into the Sky O. F. Dream came true to battle cast. They're just GONNA have lanterns that they shoot. Maybe opencast back to herself seeing all the beautiful floating lanterns. Well I mean I think she is herself like she's kind of justified in what she's doing to a point in the the blue. The blue girl is of course Again her on but I don't think CASSANDRA's hypnotized or anything. I think she is acting in what she feels is her own best interest right now. I'll have to think about that. You wouldn't agreed. We'll save that for big. I guess we're not going to do. Another CASSANDRA theory episode. Because her potline will probably be resolved next week in the one. Hour special yeah. I'm excited to see that. Said I wanted to do another big. Long Cassandra episode. Well we missed our shot. Maybe we can do. A CASSANDRA RAPA. Yeah I thought okay. One thing that I did really like about. The episode was the dynamic between the captain and baby casts and it was just kind of interesting to get his perspective on what happened. He told her puzzle that he felt like he had failed. Cassandra she had failed. I mean she failed corona but he had failed her as a father which I think was interesting just every every scene with him in baby cast which is so sweet and you could really tell how much it was hurting him to have to let her go. Yeah but I mean it was because he needed to get back to his daughter and the real world so not sorry which which was it was good. It was it was a good ending versus just really sweet when he was in sad. When I I was. Kinda getting sad when they were the fountain and here is about to take that coin out and she was like Daddy. Are You Gonna? Are you leaving me? This side By the kids so runway from the scary adult she'd become. He just liked her naive innocent south before she had power. I liked the nickname that Eugene gave to cast. You remember the nickname that you jay gave her. No little miss most likely to eliminate us all in our sleep. Oh Yeah that was funny to Dr. Thought a serial killer. Yeah ooh I'm scared okay. Here's an interesting topic. I know we're getting a little long but I had some good now so I wanna you know the one time I take notes. I want to get him up there. I go pretty soon because I sell jute nate. Okay well guess what I have to edit this whole thing tonight so blah blah blah Just more work for myself but So one thing that was kind of interesting is about halfway through when Pennzoil realizes that casts isn't a threat. She kind of says herself if she's not dangerous why should he have to lose her again and I was kind of wondering what we thought about that. Like if the curse wasn't happening if it was a good wish what do you think the The ethics of that or the the the what's our stance on if what we feel about him keeping his imaginary daughter if she wasn't a threat because we're puzzle seems to be coming down on the side of if it's not hurting anyone than let him have it? I feel like should it's hurting cats. Because he's not gonNA come finder if he thinks his imaginary daughter is cast and try to and she rebuffed. He didn't try though he didn't well. That's true for your real kid before your imaginary kid. He fought her with a sword and then commanded her to stand down and that was about it. I think he's a bad father. Can we say that no one is well like he's always been really gruff with her and kind of very busy? Don't you remember the father's day the parents day one day we kept off a little toys? She ever made him or whatever it was an actual episode was the comic. I think but still yeah. He's just not good expressive motion. Yeah and I feel like you. Totally would've told her who were mom. Was she never asked? I think he's kind of right to blame himself. For what cast is doing because part of why she is lashing out like this why she doesn't just kind of address her situation with Rapunzel as he never modeled proper conflict resolution to her. He never modeled. How talk about your feelings like that? And so now CASSANDRA's a lot like him where she just bottled up. And then it comes out in violent combat. Don't pair playing here cast other role models. Besides don't you think no other a man who raised her being emotionally distant you think him being an emotionally distant father has nothing to do with her inability to adjust the situation properly.

"That would mean that would mean that you junior pencil have to be engaged in this. These next eight episodes that happen in Flint posture. Well I just hope we get. I hope there's good songs in the final episode. Of course yes and I really. I really want there'd be some good wrap up stories like for Lance and like what he's GonNa do an like an angry I mean Catalina and Kira. I mean they're getting engaged and move to the forest and start their own little family fifty bears so is there is going to marry Casandra horse. And they're gonNA go live together. Adela wait for that. Was Not with. Cassandra she I wonder how about that. Where FIDEL GO? Probably just in the stable haven't taken taking no but how did she get back? She she just did with them. Because I don't think because I think they did go back again. I was very hot hot. Air Balloon was. Yeah really off another person. Oh my goodness I'm just I'm side. It's wrapping up. But I just hope that we get to Moussaoui episodes in it wraps up really well and and something we can really satisfied with the Indian for all the fans out there for sure. I'm sure it will be I guess that wraps things up for this speculation episode actually wait. I four do that. What episode you most excited for from these titles does not just one particularly hyped about. I WANNA obviously know about Cassandra. Like her big episode on the twenty sixth and then I also excited for her. Two Sisters Clemens really hoping the comes back because I really liked her character. I'm I mean CASSANDRA courses goes without saying but I'm kind of excited for once a handmaiden because there's a lot of possibilities with that and then also Pascal Dragon just because I'm curious what that is all about and yeah pass cows acute low guy. I'm interested to see him. Headlining his own episode.

"Do you think the cast is GonNa be redeemed? Or is she gonNa beat well based on the other episode titles after this in the fact that these are the final episodes of the show? I kind of think she's going to be maybe not redeemed but I think her storyline is going to come to a head in this one hour special in so they can wrap that up before they wrap the show up which I think is kind of a neat idea because then we can. Instead of spending a lot of time on a conflict for the final episodes we can maybe have some nice kind of emotional happiness kind of to say goodbye instead of a big battle or something yeah and is a one hour special so a lot of stuff is going to happen. And you gotTa have some kind of Tying up happen at the end of it is not really time to introduce a whole another conflict between the after that I feel like Casandra revenge. So she's getting revenge on Rapunzel Corona Corona for being such a good home city for me when I was the daughter of a felon live in the palace and have a great job and and a father who loves me. I love Cassandra but I I hope to promote a bit more clear in this episode. Yeah she's just so I'm excited to see how it's going to go. Oh how do you think oh I thought so? You know? How various for cast one-sided but he still had for cast and he is he was like a villain that got redeem so I wonder if he's going to help Catholic with her guilt about like being forgiven because he had like kind of that guilt about like. Oh they shouldn't forgive me. I run so many bad things and our pens like helps and get over it so I wonder if he's going to reach out to CASS and be like I'm like an example of you can be redeemed. I wonder if he's if he's GonNa meet her or like or what side is going to be on. Or if he's going to be an advocate for casts earth he's going to like be like Eugene and more like opposed or. Yeah maybe if. He helps Cassandra work this. Emotion shall see him more as a Appear instead of just a younger brother and maybe maybe that's why that's why they're not there for the wedding. They're having a wedding of their own. Like a have like a marriage law. You have to be. I don't doubt it if a horse conservatives capital anything's possible fighting gravity falls where Mary's Woodpecker has a going away. Good Republican Marion Adam on Corona. Right if they're allowed to be royal guard members. I don't like to think about. I mean it's a proven fact that they can communicate with humans and can understand them so and they have the same level of intelligence and the show so they can get his true it is Eugene and Maximus do about the box. Good consent to be married. Oh my goodness questions to ask you know Chris Sonnenberg when we get him on the show boy. Do you WANNA use exit visit. Yes in February on the seven or on the second sorry. My head is still recovering. On the second of February we have race to the spire Which kind of sounds to me like another episode like when they had the treasure hunt And they were all on teams competing to get to IT I. It sounds like a hijinks Z. Kind of fun episode after that one hour of revenge yeah. I don't know I summarize those episodes I lose patience with them because look what's what's the point. We have only have so many episodes left. And you're you're not doing like a more important storyline focused. But I mean those episodes can be still. That's called character building bonding. They can be fun. Too and racist. Barracuda reminds me of that one where they had to go. Find that a piece of scroll up on that mountain with the Litho keeper of his own a bear and all. I didn't like that episode. It was it was an So yeah I know just by the title. I feel like American Lincoln as well but I don't know what see an interesting scene. How the tone? How different is after that? One hour special beginning. Go super funny with it. Or what Cassandra does get redeemed which I mean. This is not a Cassandra theorize NAP said but it does get into. She GonNa just join right back in and help them with their race or is she gonNa Kinda sit out of the next episode or be in jail. After that. Oh threaten the kingdom's I mean it would be legitimate jail but KOKOSCHKA would be so hard on her data ch and the next episode. I'm coming out on. February ninth is called a tale of two sisters and I really hope it's about Korean around and her sister because we have such an industry relationship and I really missed Have seen her sister and repentance aunt and the episodes because I really liked her and thought she was really cool so I hope that she comes back. I'm not very familiar with the book. A tale of two cities which is kind of similar to this title Soviet. Oh have a similar storyline I'm not sure but I just really hope that it has Queen around a sister and I love her. Yeah usually I feel like when the show's introduced some fun new characters they try to bring the back like Reddin angry came back. The crazy king came back so it would make sense to bring Queen. Arianna sister back. She I mean is related to a puzzle so pretty an important figure in her life in some ways And it would be nice to get another episode about the Queen Because the King Queen Anne Pretty Absent from this season so that could be cool. I could also see if Cassandra gets redeemed in the special. If this is like a tale of two sisters. And Somehow Cassandra and Rapunzel our weather is like a spiritual kind of sister. Vonda whether there's some deeper revelation they're never no no his collection. Gotham a thin not round slightly us. My goodness that's another one that the the title itself gets me really intrigued about as far as the tale of two cities. I don't think I don't think we'll see much of a connection. You think it's just kind of a fun fun for the title like how riverdale episodes are always named after some crazy movie but very rarely actually. Timothy. I would've named snow speaking of Riverdale at just renewed for a fifth season womb. Real guys you have to ride in convinced an editor Riverdale podcast with actor tangled is over the best thinking there's also an episode of gravity falls call the tale of T. stands about Chelsea cities Anderson. Okay when she used the next one. Oh yes it is my turn. I was waiting on February sixteenth We get Flynn posture. Pretty bad pun. I have to say Flynn Pasta interesting. That comes right after tale two sisters. Maybe Flynn has a twin brother and not an auster. I wonder if we'll see more funds. Dad Well Oh it's interesting that the Flynn because he's he's been called Eugene or horse for so long now so all. I wonder if it's GonNa be like so Flynn. Rider is like a book character in the universe. That's like very inspiring to children. I guess there's Evil Guy who dresses up as flynn recruits. Do bad things. I could see you'd you'd be like no. That's my challenge. Here do not desecrate his name or something like out this March. Yeah that'd be interesting. Had to like because he kind of took on Flynn writer his persona when he was lost to know what to do so maybe either precipitate on and have the same like Outta toot about it might turn into something like more evil than Eugene's at four so that'd be really interesting. Yeah that'd be cool. If there was a reason why they use Flynn in the title but I could also see how they just used it to make silly pun gene pastas. This sounds like Kinda funny hijinks episode on. It's nice to have a eugene focused one because.
