Episode Recaps for all of Chapter 1 are here!
Xander is eating soup during a lightning storm. I’m betting minestrone. Down the hallway comes General Grant, who snatches up a handy flowerpot, which he chucks at Xander and smashes some stuff on the table. That’s an ice sculpture swan btw. Grant is upset because he’s seen the lights of a floundering ship out on the coast, and he wants Xander to save them. Xander isn’t particularly in a hurry and wishes to finish his martini, in which he’s built a stick-olive man. Grant pulls out his gun and forces Xander to go along. Xander swipes a dinner roll on his way out, giving Grant an unsettling grin.
Aging telepath Evil Overlord Xander has traded his youthful dream of joining the US military and using his superpowers to benefit humanity for over-the-hill cynicism, self-imposed exile on his private zoo-for-crazy-people Eynhallow Island, and a serious case of May-December midlife crisis. And technically it's only kidnapping if she tries to leave.
it has me wondering who Xander is and what he is capable of that General Grant had to force him to take
I enjoyed the recap and the summery in your commentary too.
(For real: I see that you've been improving the worst of it. It looks great!!!! )
