Much to the surprise of Jim and A.Ron, Grand Admiral Thrawn appears! A Star Wars show isn’t making us wait multiple seasons to see the character they’ve been teasing??!?

Jim and A.Ron reflect on the cultural shifts between now and the setting of Dazed and Confused.
Dr. Iain MacInnis considers historical analogues to Jon Snow.

It’s the season finale, baby! Is the finale tricksy and false, or is it a well woven tapestry that brings together the threads of season 2?
