A boss battle and a plot device; let's go. We're missing glowing red buttons, observing Grahf's technology and Gate technology, noting Shakhan is a jerk and a punk, not getting it up, blessing up our Big Boy, min-maxing Elly and destroying god, crashing our PlayStation Classic, creating a republic, having sex out of sects, cultivating dread, tolerating Rico's bad ideas, de-committing from Chu-Chu, and trashing Ramsus' trash-ass. Margie's not in this chapter.
