Notes and commentary after the jump.

Oh jeeze, so this was a lot later than I wanted. Originally the plan was to collaborate with James on comics and he kept getting busy and I kept putting off the show till he had the time and eventually I was like “will you actually have the time,” and he was like “no, sorry,” and I was like “that’s cool, I have this episode done.”
That said, this is a slow as hell episode compared to most of them. The beginning was an experiment to use action and then it devolved into a real dark spot – like if you hate when there are a lot of pauses, pass this one after the part with the giant robot fight.

That said there will be two more episodes in this season before the more or less revamp. See you them. (Damn, I gotta write these episodes now…)
