Ravin’ Girls Ep.8: Babes in the Wood
Welcome to Episode 8, where we cover Chapters 23-24 of The Raven Boys!
Finally, Cabeswater! We start to feel like Maggie might be smacking us upside the head with all of the foreshadowing in this chapter, because basically the whole plot of the Raven Cycle is laid out here. Gansey shoots finger guns, Ronan claims his territory, Adam is the resident Smart Guy, and Blue finds herself inside of a tree for the first time. Physics are 100% solid in this series, Shannon walks us through the ins and outs the “science” of using EMFs in ghost hunting, and Nievita drops a truth bomb about Blue’s nickname.
