They gave information on Steve, Cecil and their relationship!! I’m going to write it here, so skip if you don’t want spoilers!
Steve Carlsberg can’t think of the term for Cecil and mentions him as his possible brother-in-law, stepbrother, brother outside of the law, half-brother, double brother (wut?). But later he mentions his wife, who loves her brother, and this comes back several times, so I guess we know he’s Cecil’s brother-in-law now! He met Cecil for the first time at the wedding because Cecil was a total workaholic before he started dating Carlos!
He says Cecil liked a scones the first time around… Also his scones usually go first, and he says Cecil’s store made hummus and wheat free peanut chips aren’t popular… Which contradicts Cecil saying the scones are always too dry.
They’re first conversation was about the weather. Apparently you can’t talk during the weather? And I’m not sure if they were listening to it on the radio or if it plays in the air, but it was there at least! (Also, all theories that the weather is an accident by Cecil are now debunked… or at least require more details).
Steve is able to see the arrows and dotted lines and knows the truth about things?! Considering Cecil considered it forbidden knowledge that he spoke I’d say he actually does see more than others (Also, I now want to cross WTNV with Harry Potter so he can meet Luna Lovegood). And he wants his daughter to be an independent thinker as well, though Cecil hates all this. This is a very different viewpoint than Cecil gives.
I feel sorry for him. Fighting for truth is a city that doesn’t appreciate that at all….
We already knew Cecil was a very biased observer, here is more evidence of that!
As for the rest:
Chad… what have you done?! I figured it was a ritual after the candles, but wtf is unknown to and more powerful than the Old Woman without a Face?! Is this going to be the Big Bad this year? Or is it a small thing like that guy that tried to mindcontrol Night Vale and didn’t succed and was only mentioned once?
Also, never go to Dark Owl Records. Parody of hipsters I think?
No music in this episode (apart from 3 seconds during Steve’s monologue). Also no quotable proverb!
