Wintersteel: Part Two

Luke and Dan shout out correct predictions from the /r/Iteration110Cradle subreddit (follow us on twitter @DCitaBC for those embarrassing tweets). Dan thinks Mercy got a raw deal and Luke reveals some of the underlying variables behind the creation of Crusher. Also get ready for a discussion of the moral implications of what Lindon and Yerin have been up to because the boys aren't sure who the good guys are anymore. Next week: first third of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini!
