Chris didn't know Tears for Fears is a real band. On this episode we're telling Ramsus we're in different situations, putting four people in our party, realizing Emeralda is the original Bayonetta, meeting all of our friends again twice, declining to use our Jugend training, fighting Grahf in person, bungling a sacrifice play, replacing death with the next dimension, unmasking the Executioner, blowing up a bridge, and sorting out intense identity issues. You had no time to say goodbye but, don't worry, we'll meet again on the other side.
