Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 74! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 6 of The Book of Life

Oh right! THAT GUY.

Take 74 - The One With the Remote Guest

Description: It's time for a formal dinner! Fun, right? Let's answer this question as Lady Daemons: "Nah, Bruh." Eventually, we get to a calm period when people were able to break bread without killing each other, and that's nice -- until the ultimate party-crasher dialed it in. Yikes.

In typical fashion -- when this book is concerned -- this episode is packed! So prepare for a long ride in the wagon. We will stop for pee-breaks, but pack snacks!

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 6, The Book of Life 
  • We are pretty much done with this session at Sept-Tours. The sniping, griping and all of it! #OVERIT!
  • We discuss the dinner plans for the farewell. This is Diana’s second rodeo at dinner plans; she's ready! πŸ˜‚
  • OH NOES! Matthew’s beard! RIP
  • Doesn’t everyone have a vampire seamstress?
  • The disguising spell turns out to be controversial! Really, Matthew?
  • The role of the consort - can Diana handle it? We think she can. And Matthew is making a lot of assumptions here.
  • The parental roles….oh dear, what a convo!
  • Gallowglass and his formal wear 🏍
  • We decide Sarah is uncomfortable at this dinner, and her lack of being able to read the room causes her to blurt out uncomfortable observations.
  • The arrow, and Ysabeau’s comments on it.
  • Baldwin, enters and the immediate clashes between him and Diana.
  • The dinnerware…🍽
  • Phoebe approves of the table seating. 
  • Dinner commences, and eventually everyone was able to settle in without killing each other.
  • Marcus and Phoebe’s announcement; “The old fashioned way” 
  • Phoebe is gonna be a vampire! Whoa! Matthew forbids it! Marcus: “It’s not up to you, dude. It’s up to Baldwin” OUCH.
  • All of the intimate mating secrets are getting spilled.
  • The phone rings … 
  • Benjamin is dropping hints as to what he’s up to.
  • Matthew calls Miriam, and she’s clueless that Benjamin has her phone.πŸ“±
  • Tudo ben contigo? = you good?
  • Baldwin has some things to say about Matthew’s handling of Benjamin in the past.
  • Baldwin takes control of this situation with a few proclamations and leaves the room.
  • Diana decides that they are going to the Bishop house. Matthew, Diana, Sarah and Fernando will be headed to NY. Diana theorizes that Rebecca had the answers, and that’s where they’ll find them.
  • Finding the missing pages of the Book of Life becomes the priority.
  • Phoebe hAz some useful sKiLlZ
  • Benjamin shares an appreciation for witches with Matthew…we thought this meaning was obvious, but it seems to be confusing the book's characters?
  • FIN
Gokuraku-ji Temple, Hachioji -- where Baldwin's DAUGHTER is from!

* 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?"
