Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
- Yes, that’s Scar the Ishvalan, aka the inimitable J. Michael Tatum, kicking off the episode!
- Eryn says she deviates from Killua in that, you know, she’s obviously not an assassin, but doesn’t that sound exactly like what an assassin would say? Also, how do you ignore this evidence?
- Bible verses we mentioned or that inspired discussion in this episode include Exodus 2:13, 4:10, and 4:13; Psalm 55:22; Genesis 3; 1 Peter 2:9; Jeremiah 1:5; and Psalm 27:3.
