I really hope you guys enjoy it.
I was worried for a long time about this episode, but after giving it some thought in context, I think it had to happen like this. I hope you guys agree.
As usual, I've updated the Table of Contents.
I also think I will end the season two days after Thanksgiving, on November 25, 2000, then take a break while I work on some other projects and decide where the story will go for Season 3.
Thanks for being such awesome readers. :)
