In the stolen century, Taako tastes such an amazing dish that he feels a bond to someone. Is that person Kravitz?
No, that was a taco. And Joaquin, who helped him make that taco. And exploding taco trucks.
I can’t even make this shit up. Only Griffin Mc-fucking-Elroy can.
Griffin: And you don’t know what it is, because in a way it’s intangible, but at the same time, it’s real, because you can feel it. The moment you eat this meal, the moment your mind starts reeling with all of these new culinary possibilities, a bond is created. And imagine a long thread with one end tied around you and another tied around a person, a moment.
Griffin: And he sort of raises up his taco to you in like a cheers motion. And then we see the two of you, in unison, raising your tacos up to your open mouths. And then the scene changes. And inside the celestial plane we see Istus. And she’s working tirelessly, still weaving this massive colorful tapestry hanging on the wall. And she’s clutching a needle tied to one final bright red thread. And as she pushes it through her work, she takes a step back, and she pauses. And finally beholds the shape of her divine artistry. And she smiles, and she says,
Istus: Huh. Didn’t see that one coming!
Griffin: And she rears backwards and pulls the thread taut. And at the same time, across two universes, two food trucks explode.
Not so much a situation of sou mates being a thing so much as Griffin basically showing that realized that he can still have the old taco quest bit be canon and relevant. Also, I relate to Istus’ comment. I also did not see that coming. No one saw this coming. I’m not even sure if the people who said that the Bag of Necessity contained the secret to tacos saw that coming.
