    Burt Narrated in this chapter.. I do not see him dying in it.. Would not go along with what I have been noticing this in the story.. Those who no longer narrate are most likely to die. I think the the ones that narrate are alive at the end.. I guess I will have to wait till the end to see if I am correct.

    i REALLY liked how KC didn't go over the initial reactions from Burt & Riley. i liked how there's the "let me back up" rehashing of the moments after the deaths of two big characters.

    with Burt/Riley speaking in past-tense about Lizzy's death helps all of us put some perspective on the flow of the last few chapters.

    True, I never really understood what she meant by that......

    I have listened to the "easter egg" episode: honestly I cannot say which one works best. Maybe the only thing is that the easter egg's episode interrupts B&R's flow; the music right before they go to Tardust works as well right when Michael says "This is far from over". Either way it ends with M&V in the same spot.
    What was the reason for choosing the one which was published?

    You are right. I was wrong. I corrected it. This one was much closer to your skills.

    Logic would dictate at this point the show has become predictable. It's at this point a writer would make a turn. Turn everything you know up to this point on its head--within the confines of the genre. It's time to do the opposite of what we're expecting over the course of the next 220 minutes (give or take). It seems like a lot of time to tell a story--and it is, and isn't all at once--but he's got a lot of loose ends to tie up. A lot of relationships to resolve. He has already killed off a major player (and fan favourite. Thanks for all the years of great performance, Blaire. You did a really fantastic job.), so there's blood in the water already. Think of all the lives left to deal with:

    Michael.
    CJ.
    Pegs.
    Scratch.
    Burt.
    Riley.
    Victor.
    Kelly.
    Saul.
    Tanya.
    Hope.

    Hell... even Skittles is due to make an appearance.

    That's a lot of ground to cover in three chapters, without glossing over big emotional beats, story revelations, and action. Granted, Kc has been able to work in tremendous amounts of exposition in action sequences, so in that respect he has literal years to conclude the story. There comes a point in time in every story when we reach present action, the inevitable moment when the past catches up with us and we're no longer seeing the story through the eyes of the journal entries, and instead we are living it in real time alongside the characters. We could see that moment come before the final chapter (a device that would further the doubt of listeners as to who will actually be the last man standing as it opens up the possibility for a very bleak, dark ending in which nobody survives but Ink).

    The long and short of this is: We're essentially at the third act climax in the grand scheme of the story, and as such Kc is more likely to break with the formula than he is to stay locked into it.

    Why?
    Because this one had us stumped right up to the very end. The order the chapter was written, and the way it came across in the editing process were two different products.

    So, some last minute tweaking, changed music cues, and moved where certain things are in the episode. It's practically the same episode, except the order of scenes is a little different.

    Check it out, and post your thoughts.

    I'll comment on this only briefly to summarize this last chapter. For a long time I didn't want to explicitly comment on Riley's sexuality. My opinion is best summated with her "Why does it matter?"- But at the same time I felt I needed to clear the air. The first chapter in the series best describes her sexuality when she says to Michael, "You're not my type". Angel she wasn't interested in romantically, but he was a very close friend. The only two people she really identified with in the tower were Angel and Lizzy-

    This. So. Much.

    This isn't a dramatic retelling of a high school girl's coming of age and self-discovery.

    There's one thing about this episode that I'm a little confused about...

    It seems to me that no one knows about Datu and Lizzy being dead other than the group that was with them when it happened. Initially I thought Burt and Riley's conversation was a reaction to Riley's upset over Lizzy's death but the second time I read it, it doesn't seem like she knew. There's the one line in particular that kind of twigged this in my head. Riley says something along the lines of "It's not like they've ever needed us before." when they were talking about the radios. It seems like this episode is happening the morning following the events with the Pelican and Lizzy's death.

    Does anyone else think this too or am I just off in left field?
