Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.22: The Kinks Are Always A Problem
Welcome to Season 2 Episode 22, where we cover Chapters 23-26 of The Dream Thieves!
The Gray Man breaks into Monmouth while flirting with Maura, the Gangsey and Orla make a sweaty and frustrating boat trip to discover some enigmatic clues, and Blue meets her mom’s new suitor while rehearsing The Little Mermaid with Noah. We talk about the Gray Man’s life motto, who has the cutest pet names (spoiler: it’s Mr. Gray’s rental car), and if we would rather live at 300 Fox Way or The Barns. Shannon has an adorable accent, Nievita acts out a piece of fan art (great podcast content for sure), we wonder Who Wore It Best, and we all find out why Alfred was So Damned Great!
DEEP DIVE: Alfred the Great (from approx. the 13:18 minute mark to 21:24, depending on your player)
