What if in the new Gladstone episode, his luck had been serving him by being held captive by the demon? Because that was what brought his family to him, and even if he didn't know himself/wouldn't admit it, he probably really missed them a lot
that occurred to me too! I love it when his luck takes a big arcing curve in manipulating his overall situation and places him in the right place at the right time, even/especially if it seems like a bad one for a while!
whatever the case, it’s clear that he hasn’t interacted with the family for a while and has been given a wake-up call of a sort. Again, they played that moment of lucidity for laughs at the end, which is fine, but there’s a lot of genuine emotional character-developing potential there; that isolation has always been a reason why I find Gladstone so compelling and I really hope they utilise it fully.
