8x03 "The Long Night" UBS Review
Julia, Kylie, and Caroline, are joined by fellow book-snob Musa to discuss one very long nighttime fight. It shouldn't need more emphasis than that, right? Please visit TheFandomentals.com for related posts and the CAROL board. This week, we are episode break-down-less, as there's really no useful distinctions in our conversation. Rather like the episode!
