Oh no i had a bad thought in the midst of my nihilistic rampage.
Stan’s been heavily foreshadowed to catch on fire at some point, right?
Well yknow what else has been heavily implied to have a major effect on the plot? Time travel.
Yknow what time travel tends to DO?
And it just seems…. too specific of a thing to be in the show for it to be inconsequential, right? It hasn’t had any major, lasting effect yet (unless you count Blendin’s hair loss) but it’s been brought up and shown to us multiple times.
