The wretched will makes us experience sadness and loss. For the final episode of season one, we're meeting our real imaginary savior in space, speaking to ghostface killa, rationalizing villainous activity, getting high off god fumes, spilling soup, accepting fate, rejecting fate, seeking connections, determining the power of love through battle, forgiving genocide, favoring humanity over divinity, running through the dimensional shift, collapsing space time, falling to earth, and screaming in Japanese. Now, there is no more god.
