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? Demerzel has become a formidable foe for those who would trigger her defensive programming. But maybe there’s a way to logic your way around it. So many things go wrong in order for them to go right.
The Gorn are on their way to becoming a classic Star Trek villain. But what are they up to? These don’t seem to be the same Gorn La’an encountered. Grab a lizard fighting weapon and sound the horn of Cayuga, the crew is riding into battle in this season finale.
The season finale is here and it was a hit and a miss. There were some strong plot choices that we’re looking forward to continuing in the next season. But characters are making choices that seem, well, out of character. The women at Lottie’s compound have some hard decisions to make. Walter continues to be an entertaining enigma. We still don’t know who the pit girl is, but we’re running out of teenagers.
The finale didn’t land with some critics, but Jim and A.Ron liked it! When you let go of “what could have been”, you’ll enjoy the swarms of Mandos, fight scenes, and Giancarlo Esposito. What will be next for this found family? Your hosts share some season 4 hopes. And you can share yours by sending in an email!
It’s an emotionally crushing finale full of hard choices and desperate situations. The Fireflies may have gone off the deep end. We get to see the killer version of Joel people have been talking about all season. Did you catch all the video game actor cameos throughout the season?
David and John discuss the Season 1 Finale of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. The words of the dead lift up our cast of characters as they gather on Ferrix for a funeral to remember. David and John explore the similarities between Cassian and Luthen, the deception of Mon Mothma, and whether Dedra is moving in with Syril and his mom. Join us next week for our Season Wrap-up with Maester Anthony from the Double Dragon podcast!
We got a lot of answers in the finale. But were they satisfying answers? Listen in on some of the closing theories about this season and the next. Are there more half-elves running around? Will Jeff Bezos make a cameo? A.Ron has a Swedish Death Metal song for you. And don’t forget to send in your feedback for the final wrapup episode.
David has returned and his veil has been lifted! David and John discussed their hot takes for Episode 8 and then deep dive into the lore around Sauron’s near redemption, the forging of the Rings of Power, and the coming of the Istari. They tied up the episode with some listener feedback about accents, character motivations, and the reception of the show before discussing the future plans for the Lorehounds.
The power has been restored to this show. Great sacrifices are made, destinies intertwined, and identities revealed. Though original Tolkien lore was trampled a bit, it was a job well done all around. We’re looking forward to seeing our heroes and villains in the next season. And don’t miss the feedback and wrap up episode next week!
Whether you’re mourning or celebrating this season, tune in for Jim and A.Ron’s lively discussion on the season finale. In the words of Dylan Thomas, we’re asking this show “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against what this new acquisition might do to you.” If it doesn’t get a season 5, just could consider this show on a recursive loop.
