    This looks like this might be another trippy episode, but we might get some answers.

    It really feels like a AoS episode now.

    I'm trying to think what it reminds me the most of. I guess that could work, but it's such a headtrip.

    It's interesting to note that time is progressing much faster in the illusion.

    A sweet ending with the two. The actors are doing a great job of selling their relationship. I am curious if the change to the workers is what actually happened. If so, it is sounding a LOT like D'sparye.

    I would guess it is what happened. Maybe D'Spayre, but I'd also just guess it's the darkforce energy that Ty has infecting them.

    The reveals in this episode were interestingly timed. I would argue we learned a bit more - both what happened to the rig (unexpected pressure build up releasing the energy they were mining that caused people to go crazy) and why it happened (the pressure thing has been referenced before, but Roxxon cheaped out on the paneling).

    I hope their proficiency with their powers now exists outside of the dreamworld now.

    It was pretty cool to see. Loved what I saw from the next episode preview.

    Good to finally see Tandy and Tyrone teaming up and using their powers.

    But why does Tyrone need to call up Tandy? Why can't he just teleport and visit her in person?

    I think in that case, he was making a point to her, she knows he can port to her but earlier she said she didn’t have any friends who called her to see how she was, so he went out of his way to call her and see how she was, implying that he was her friend.

    Nice use of The Decemberists
    Drilling for oil and they accidentally unleash a ancient demon would be a lovecraftian direction I could get behind.

    Alright, I need to see the greatness of their powers in the real world as well.

    I was a little disappointed in Hess not remembering them when they got out. Was wondering how that could’ve helped with the fight against Roxxon. And maybe with whatever catastrophe that voodoo lady says is coming.
