Ravin' Girls Episode 20: Silent Hill Flashbacks

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 20, where we cover Chapters 15-18 of The Dream Thieves! The Gangsey head back to visit their mystical talking tree friends for the first time since Adam made his bargain, but what’s this? A whole forest is gone! The Pig once again breaks down in a plot-convenient way, and Ronan has terrible dreams… some of which escape his head. We talk about what a drama queen Ronan can be, how Gansey can apparently use a smooth pick-up line on everyone except Blue, the parallels between Ronan’s mask dream and incidents in The Raven King, and how even Goddesses can sometimes make poor fashion choices.
