THIS NEW EPISODE OH MY GOD I’M DYING HERE

(spoilers for WTNV ep 111 “Summer 2017, Night Vale, USA” ahead)

• The original intro music 💦 💦 

• We got a bit of Carlos’s perspective on things FINALLY

• Carlos realized he has changed oh my god, I hope we’ll get more of his original character please

• ‘Carlos reminded us that we are by far the most scientificly interesting community in the country. And we joined hands and nodded, because BOY. don’t. we. know. it‘ lmao

• A lot of Carlos in general, bless 🔥 

• Also a lot of cecilos. Like. A lot. I think there was more cecilos moments for one episode than ever, safe for the First Date ep maybe

• They’re starting to highlight Carlos’s team of scientists!!! You can’t imagine how long I’ve been waiting for this

• ‘There seem to be secrets about that year [in the desert otherworld] [Carlos] is keeping to himself. Maybe someday we will learn what they are’ CAN YOU HEAR ME SCREAMING

• Fink in the author’s intro: ‘We’re going to be trying some new stuff with this show and it’s storytelling in the coming months‘ more like an episode narrated by Carlos WHEN

• CECIL CALLING STEVE HIS BEST FRIEND

• THE COLLIDING UNIVERSED ARE STILL A THING AND THEY EXPLAIN THE WEIRDNESS JUST THE WAY I IMAGINED I’M LIVING

• what happened to my tiny Night Vale you monsters

• Cecil being bitter about things is my favorite Cecil

• ‘Carlos <…> came into our studio during the break earlier <…>. He had some sort of blinking box in his hand covered with wires and tubes <…>. He asked if I remembered it, he brought it by on the first day we met. He told me that it tested for materials but he wasn’t actually sure what materials it tested for. He had just wanted an exquse to come by and talk to me‘ oh my god this is the best thing I love this ep

• tbh I thought that the ‘boyfriend material‘ joke was gonna become canon for a second lmao

• the scene with Cecil, Carlos and Khoshek is officially the cutest thing in the entire podcast

In short, this episode is amazing and I’m in tears. Can’t wait for the new ones
