Remember when I said I loved it when characters got forced out of their comfort zone? Sundar has already had to be “the adult in the room” thanks to Syr’Nj’s absence and E-Merl’s decline, but now he’s actually got to be…I can’t believe I’m typing this…the thinker of the group.

On the one hand, I will always feel badly for E-Merl, trying to drown his pain not only in drink but now in groundless optimism. But on the other hand, silly-drunk dialogue is just insanely fun to write. You see my dilemma.

Also, check out WAV figuring his way through basic economics. He won’t be discussing GDP anytime soon, but a lot of econ is really just data comparison and quantification when you get down to it, and WAV is clearly good at those things.
