    So, that was the quiet, slow-build, *opening* episode of this story? I'll be curious to see how you manage to ramp up the pace and energy after that...

    One thing that I found interesting about the experience of listening to this episode was how the position of this "chronicle" as a spinoff of Aaron's misadventures affected Amy's confrontation with Karen.

    If this had been a normal standalone game, I would have assumed that the likelihood was that Amy was meant to kill Karen. But, since Karen is so important to Aaron's story, I felt that she had plot immunity. Which left me in suspense as to how the encounter between the two would play out. At one point, I was even wondering if this would go down the road of Karen becoming besotted with Amy.
    (Hey, I said that I view this as a CW show.)

    Much as I am waiting for the climactic "Amy meets Aaron!" moment, it would be amusing if they keep just missing one another, and instead Ken becomes a recurring character in Aaron's story.

    But definitely one of the best episodes yet.
