Someone else who uses "misty mist and dusty dust"!. I feel so validated.

I love the pics and as someone who spent 27 years in the home video business before having to retire because of illness, I miss attending these shows and conventions (under the guise of "business" but having a ball). Always had a great time and saw friends year after year.

Hopefully, you can bring some of the cast to Philly by next season so that we can fight Skitters on the banks of the Schuylkill River.

Great episode, and for some reason, I also want peanut butter.

Working on my own blog look at the episode now. You can steal it if it doesn't make you dizzy reading my ramblings.

Looking forward to next week.

@Journey to Xilbalba

1. Xilbalba=place of fear, the name of the Mayan underworld. I had heard of Xilbalba in the context of the Mesoamerican cave systems, but wiki says that the Dark Rift of the Milky Way is another path to Xilbalba. Very interesting.

The Maya abandoned their cities around 900 AD; we still ain't sure why. However, their descendants still live in that area and still revere the cenotes.

2. So in this episode… it takes place underground, there's some fear that the collapsed mall will be their grave, and…

No one really goes on a journey, there's no overt spiritual analogies that I noticed, no other parallels to cenotes or flooded cave systems (I half expected you were going to have the crawlies make an appearance and try to drown them all by tunneling from the mall to the ocean).

Did you have something else planned? I mean, Be Silent and Come Out obviously drew parallels to exorcisms, Pickett Line is also obvious, Strange Brew… now that I think about it, I've got nothing on strange brew either.

3. How did Lourdes get close enough to the Volm building to set off a bomb (to say nothing about getting close enough to pack a punch like that)?

When I first saw it, I thought they had built their base on Fort Sumter or one of the other harbor islands. Even if that ain't the case, I'd imagine they'd be wary of letting humans too close to their base without good reason.

4. How long were Hal and Maggie in the ammo depot? Must have been quite a while if oxygen was running out in a room that size.

5. Again with the tunnels? And they're able to use them to get under a caved-in, underground mall? That's stupid.

6. Saline shaped-charge? That's smart, taking advantage of the fact that water is practically incompressible. I looked it up and they really do use something like it. So much for wine-bottle shaped charges.

Great!

But we were in kind of an extreme duress situation at that time of the season – and so it seemed appropriate.
