The Villain’s Triumph is Well *Urned* in Episode 6

Episode 6: The Memory Jar

When Blister’s escape from Dr. van Sangfreud’s trap is blocked, he is hooked to the dreaded animal-addling contraption. Extracting his memories is crucial to the mad scientist’s wicked plot.

For the Curious

What does it mean for a villain to monologue? It refers to when one person does all the talking. The “mono” in monologue means alone or just one. You may have seen a monologue if you’ve ever been to a play and saw an actor deliver a long speech to the other characters on stage. When multiple characters interact and talk together, it’s called a dialogue.
