Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 65! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 39 of Shadow of Night

After living in Elizabethan England for so long, we figured a modern invitation would be both refreshing and appropriate!

Take 65 - The One With the Long Goodbye

Description: We are ending our adventures in the 16th Century. Goodbye, Goody. Goodbye, Hubbard. Goodbye, Walter. Goodbye, Kit. Goodbye, George. Goodbye, Hal. Goodbye, Jack. Goodbye, Annie. See ya, Susanna. Goodbye, Garlickhythe Gathering. Goodbye, Gallowglass. Goodbye, Pierre. Goodbye, House. It's time to step back to our present and get to know what's become unknown. Let's start this wagon! Hey -- we time-walk with what we have, OK?!

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read All Souls universe books, including the trilogy (A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, The Book of Life), and  Time's Convert + snippits from The World of All Souls. If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  Please be advised, we will approach the television series (A Discovery of Witches) the same way as episodes are released in the US/Canada. 😊  Let's do this. *Note - this podcast is labeled 'explicit'

Chapter 39, Shadow of Night 
  • Let’s visit Goody! She’s not doing so good.
  • The news of witches burning has not helped Goody’s health.πŸ€’
  • Hey, there’s another knot! Good for you, Diana. You're doing it! We speculate on why she is the first to do it in ages.
  • We wander off into speculating about Diana’s twin.
  • Mother Ursula’s prophecy
  • Bye Goody!✌️
  • On to Hubbard!πŸ§›πŸ»‍♂️
  • Diana throws money at the problem of Jack and Annie, Hubbard doesn’t want it. πŸ’Έ
  • Hubbard makes an offer…
  • We consider the possibilities of the Bishop-Clairmont legacy if Hubbard was malicious . . .
  • Diana utilizes a tool in her chest: think and stay alive.
  • The blood negotiations.
  • They come to an agreement — Diana knows how to handle Hubbard now.
  • Farewell Diana Bishop. Bye Hubbard!πŸ‘‹
  • Walter and Matthew are arguing when she gets to Hart & Crown. Oh geez, It seems Bess is knocked up. Walter is being the jerk and Matthew was being the reasonable one! Wut?!😑
  • Enter Gallowglass!
  • Tom’s invention … in progress! Diana decides to fund to this particular project. Time-loop? Who cares! Matthew agrees to pay! Off to the mouse-trap maker!
  • Diana runs into her ancestors on the street! Bridget and her daughter Rebecca. Now we know how Ysabeau’s earring got into that poppet!
  • Kit! Ok, he has to make amends to Matthew and for the first time we agree. 
  • The star glass!πŸ”­
  • The gathering girls join in on the goodbye party!
  • We realize as the School of Night gets into it, we can finally say they can be pretty insufferable at times; the shine has dulled!
  • Bye Annie, Bye Goody, Bye Susanna.😞
  • Bye Walter, Kit, and George.😟
  • Bye Tom, Hal and Jack!😫
  • Bye Gallowglass.☹️
  • Bye Pierre!😭

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
