In this episode Little Locke gets a lesson in humility and decadence in the church of the 13th god. Then Big Locke and crew break into the Don Salvara household disguised as “Midnighters,” and tell the Don exactly what they intend to do with him. We hear about “the Spider,” and “the Grey King,” for the first time.
Technical Note: This podcast was brought to you from the basement of The Duke and Duchess Enterprises…the boiler room as it were. So, the sound quality is not the best. It’s not so bad as to be off putting, but not quite up to the typical Duke and Duchess standard. We get it if you want to go ahead and burn your iPod now…
- Well, since the “Black Shape” isn’t a girl, I guess we have to come up with something else….
- The “Black Shape” is a bird that is being controlled by an outside force in order to collect information on Locke
- The person behind it is someone looking for revenge on Locke
- My bet is that it is either one of the nobles that he has robbed, the Spider, or the Grey King.
Next time we’ll read the interlude between chapters 3 and 4, and chapter 4.
