FosterIcon.gif Foster: Okay, so, this episode was buckwild. We went to Hell's Carnival! I got kidnapped and almost enslaved! The group decided on the main villain, for a little while! For real, though, Malatyne's house is creepy af. The twisted face underneath the mask? Great. Scary. Loved it.

I also want to recognize this episode for laying the groundwork for future events - Malatyne, obviously, but also introducing Markov. Establishing the team as able to work separately, but better together. The first time the individuals on the team risks their own safety to help another member. And, of course, shoving the players halfway around the world with no way to get back.
