Seriously, these next two episodes are going to ruin me, aren’t they?

While we all appreciate that your stock in trade is being unprepared, I think you definitely know the answer to that :D

Mark - when I have had a bad day and I need a laugh, I have the video of you reading The Light Fantastic Part 6:

HORSE D’OEUVRES.

It has been my go-to for a guaranteed joy-filled laugh for (checks dates) six years and one month.

AAAAAAAAH I have returned to Mark Watches for Jane the Virgin! I'm so excited! This show is so much! Mark's reactions are never prepared! I missed you all!

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.
