Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.23: All Of The “A’s”
Welcome to Season 2 Episode 23, where we cover Chapters 27-30 of The Dream Thieves!
Everyone’s on fire at Kavinsky’s substance party, including the Mitsubishi! Ronan and Gansey visit another king’s kingdom, Maura and the Gray Man go on a date where Maura steals yet another piece of his property, and Ronan has a very, very symbolic dream. We also agree that the 80’s were a weird time, Shannon discusses the legality of fireworks, Nievita points out the most unbelievable part of the whole book, and we discuss which one of us would be more likely to follow the other person in a car on a date.
MINI DEEP DIVE: The myth of Pygmalion (from approx. the 19:56 minute mark to 23:32, depending on your player)
