Jade City: Part Three

Did Luke and Dan get replaced by serous book critics? Good question Jessica but no. We just get really into the weeds on character analysis in this one. Actually now that I think about it there wasn't that much dumb stuff in this episode. Really just one brief aside about Shae's apartment furniture. Not bad.

Jade City: Part Two

Luke and Dan decide the FEMA in Janloon needs an complete restructuring. Luke thinks everyone needs to get just a little bit more hype. Okay maybe a lot more hype. Dan starts development on the custom Yelp plugin for Janloon, and Luke makes an absurdly hot take. This one is a doozy. Shae, you definitely left out a few key details about your boyfriend. Come on. Also Beru is the biggest idiot of all time.

Jade City: Part One

The boys are officially #TeamHilo. Sure he has his faults, but gosh darn it he is just so genuine. Also not to split our allegiances but we are so down with #BuscemiClan. Luke and Dan reveal that Anden isn't potty trained and probably has no intention of learning. Finally, we have an important PSA: Jade power hugs not drugs.
