In The Village: “A. B. and C.”

The Prisoner

Erika and Steven finally talk about one of the most important aspects of the entire show: the font. Also, about the deep insight we get into the mind of our hero — without actually learning anything beyond how formidable an opponent he can be.

And Erika remembers her segment in which she determines the outfit she’d most like to cosplay from this episode. Lots of party dresses to choose from in this one, but her selection may surprise you. It sure did Steven!

Be seeing you!

The Defenders

Lisa, Tony, and Moze continue on to episode 5!

Also we mix up “Black Sky” and “Black Hand” a lot, sorry about that!
