I don't know if this is appropriate, but Mark, I'm so happy that this show existed at the same time that you exist. I'm sorry for your pain, but so happy for your continued presence in this world, as both you and it are honest and emotional and messy and sincere and just bursting with the joy of what new experiences can bring us.

Wait, then what does that gift mean??? Rajan was incredibly upset by it, but he didn’t explain why. Oh god, WHAT’S HAPPENING??? I think the note that came with it is a clue, so… is something hidden inside of it? You know, since it’s so “fragile”?

I don't think this is a spoiler -- mods please delete if so -- but my assumption about the gift (a statue of Ganesha, the god Kala prays to) is meant to represent Kala, and the "warning: fragile" is meant to be a message to Rajan that if he puts his nose where it doesn't belong, Kala's life will be in danger.

Question, though: I’ve attended very, very few weddings, and in those, the ceremony was first, followed by the reception. Is there any reason why this was done in reverse here? Is it a cultural thing I don’t understand?

That was the rehearsal dinner.

I first saw Terrence V. Mann on Broadway in this role in 1982:

One absolutely lovely moment that I haven't seen much mention of in discussions comes during the montage over Steven's performance on the stage. On the lyric "we... already won," Pearl and Garnet, who have been standing off to the side of the Bubble Bath are both tearing up at what they're seeing, and they embrace. Think of how long they've waited and fought and dreamed and feared and given up that this kind of resolution would ever come about, and now here it is, and it's so much more than they could have hoped. Just a lovely little moment in the episode, but it's almost a 5,000-year payoff.

What else did I miss?

Screenshot below is from the final scene of the episode.

Obsidian's just been sitting here for five fuckin' seasons.

I spoke too soon - I can see comments in the most current Black Market thread, but if I go back one, I can't see any, even though it says there's nearly 300. Any other ideas?

Wow - that was it! Thanks for the help. That's not a good bug to have, though, and Chrome has worked for me since that site was new right up until now. Any idea to whose attention I should bring it? I don't know who is in charge of running the different Mark websites....

Hi - I hate to ask this here but I don't know where else to ask - I went to the most recent Black Market thread and I can't see any comments. The thread is here: https://markspoils.blogspot.com/2018/11/the-black...

I checked the one before it, which is here: https://markspoils.blogspot.com/2018/09/the-black...

And I can't see any comments there either.

I went to the Weekly Shenanigans post to ask this question there: https://markspoils.blogspot.com/2018/11/weekly-sh...

And I can't see comments there EITHER.

HELP?

Does anyone know why this might be happening?
