I let my sister read this and I watched her reaction. She initially had little reaction to this chunk of the description because she believed the "friend" referenced in the description was Leonid Sepanov from "Triple-Decker Sundae." My mind immediately went elsewhere when I read it. I feel that it's obvious that the "friend" is Morrie Rydell.Polehaus53 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 14, 2021 10:55 am“Have you ever considered that Mr. John Avery Whittaker has his own agenda?” Olivia has a new friend in her life.

While I can see Morrie being a good character to be the one to help lead Olivia further into confusion, I don't want the utter mess of the morality and the Whit writing problems from the Rydell Saga to cross over into this story (which has so far been excellent). I do remember it was mentioned on an Official Podcast that both Phil Lollar and Marshal Younger are writing this storyline. This description definitely oozes the spirit of the Rydell Revelations, if only because of the quote, “Have you ever considered that Mr. John Avery Whittaker has his own agenda?”
I do really hope, whatever happens, it will live up to the same standard as all of the stuff we've gotten so far with Olivia on the last album.
Buck's father? This could be really interesting! I feel the need to relisten to "The Long End" now because while I remember a good amount of it, I'm a bit fuzzy on some of the backstory of his parents.
Wow, that took a TURN. I want to know his thought process here?! There haven't been any recent indicators that I'm aware of that hint he is questioning cutting his familial ties with Eugene and Katrina. There was, of course, "Auto Response" (which was amazing in terms of his characterization) where he wondered if his loved ones would drop him the moment he did anything wrong. I'm excited to see Buck's train of thought. I hope these episodes possibly begin to address the often problematic nature of Buck and Jules's friendship (although I do understand if this very specific multi-parter doesn't address it).
First thing of note, they spelled Bridget's name wrong. Secondly, I feel this isn't written in a way that is intriguing or interesting at all. I'm excited that we're getting another Perkins episode, but this part of the description feels cheap lol.

I also initially thought that it would be Morrie Rydell. That would be quite interesting if it were because it would connect two sagas. But thinking about it, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Leonid. Curious about the line: 'Olivia's own desire to settle some scores'. Scores against Zoe? Oh, boy.Polehaus53 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 14, 2021 10:55 am“Have you ever considered that Mr. John Avery Whittaker has his own agenda?” Olivia has a new friend in her life.

I am guessing that this is the episode called "The Lost One" and that it will be a two-parter.
I'm obsessing over this more than is probably warranted. This sounds super interesting!Polehaus53 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 14, 2021 10:55 amMeanwhile, Buck and Jules discover that Buck’s father left behind a lot more than could ever have been suspected. Could the map help him determine what is next for his life? Because he’s beginning to wonder if he really wants to be in a family with Eugene and Katrina.
I'm not so happy about the Jules part. I wouldn't be surprised if Jules is the one causing him to think he shouldn't be in a family, but it's probably something else. I wonder if they'll discuss the LCTWTO situation and the journal.
I am really hoping that this map thing and Buck's father will tie into GRC/Long End. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but I can't help thinking...will we get an appearance from Felicia Larson? Monty Whittaker? Mr. Skint? Or will it be a treasure-hunt sort of episode?
Very excited for this album!
