Ravin’ Girls Ep.11: Glendower In The Back
Welcome to Episode 11, where we cover Chapters 30-32 of The Raven Boys!
Both Shannon and Nievita bring the salt this episode! We get into some mild dragging of Dick Gansey the Second, Neeve continues to be a terrible human, we reject the canon of Noah’s shoes, Shannon holds the line as Blue Sargent Defense Squad, and Nievita is just the worst at pronouncing names and doing accents. You’d think by now she’d learn!
Note: Shannon only almost caused the car to crash because Nievita put her ice cold hands on Shannon’s face while pretending she was Noah, then laughed so hard she couldn’t see to drive. It was justified on Shannon’s part.
DEEP DIVE: Holey Stones (from approx. the 40:00 minute mark to 54:20, depending on player)
