    Wow. What an episode to recap guys. Kudos!

    Great podcast, as always. At the moment when Elliott sees all the other characters in his hoodie do you think it’s possible that he’s merely speculating that one of them is himself? Like, he could have momentarily considered the possibility that someone else he thinks he knows doesn’t really exist and is, in fact, himself acting as another personality and what that looks like to him is his brain considering each person, one at a time, being dressed as himself.

    I definitely don’t see anyone else being Also Elliott (AE). We have too many scenes with these other characters interacting with each other and referring to each other by their rightful names. I think that’s too complex to consider.
