Ravin' Girls Ep. 7: Poor Sweet N00b

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 7, where we cover Chapter 19-22 of The Raven Boys! Finally, it’s the episode where we get the band together! Adam finally contacts Blue (three whole days later!) by way of an apology carnation, there is an exhibition of Ronan’s dubious grasp on physics, and the Gangsey goes exploring in a highly convenient plot-icopter. Nievita does her best (absolute worst) Schwarzenegger impression, it is revealed that Nievita and Shannon went to middle school with the exact same person, and Shannon poses the question: does the Raven Cycle pass the Bechdel Test?
