In part 2, we discuss the key themes, some more obvious and some less than others, throughout season 1. Plus, we talk parallels with season 4 that blew our minds. In part 3, we talk about our favorite episodes of the season, highlights, and lowlights. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers! Click here to download the episode directly.
