We learn a little more about an ongoing conflict rocketing across time and space in this week’s episode, as Night Vale welcomes home several returning soldiers from the Blood Space War. Among other things, we find out that the attackers are the Polonians from star system Lakaia 9352, our allies are Beings of Astonishing Structure from Battle Station Wolfgang, and John Peters (you know, the farmer) and his brother Jim had a father who was awesome.

Fair warning, the creators of Night Vale drew some parallels in this episode with our own country’s treatment of veterans and it’s NOT SUBTLE. It’s also not wrong.

In order to lighten things up after the recap we switched over to (deep breath): the Hugo Nominees (Catherynne Valente and Lindsay Ellis, yay!), an idea for a work of team fiction, the movie Annihilation, the Zero Punctuation video game reviews, photo galleries from Wondercon, and catching a cold at Wondercon. Cough.
