Jonathan attempts the most outrageous chandelier swing in recorded history–but something is missing from his landing. Cyrus writes a letter that will cause him some trouble later; Daisy goes straight for true love; and Rolly saves the day with the awesome power of mathematics. Vicod Rayth is entirely naked.
Find your way into God’s night
Where Heaven’s candles, flaring bright
Set fire to the canopy
And sear the satin tree-palms white.
Sir Richard discovers how to narrate unreliably. He pursues his new art with glee, pausing only to finish the song he began at his departure from Uellodon. Featuring “Into A Wakeless Shade.”
The White Knights, now swollen to a force with the numbers and equipment to seize Uellodon, attack King Leeland’s smaller army near the unlucky village of Baldwick. Thomas Howe gives makes a proper application of scout cavalry. General Chester gets philosophical, and your host throws down some musical bombast.

Part 2 of 2:
Something stalks Grygory the Pious in the deep forests of the north. Jonathan and Merrily are reunited at last–but everything is different. Cyrus almost reveals his cunning plan.
The Bright Path is rumbling on toward its conclusion–now perhaps five episodes away. What will happen next? Stay tuned–more adventures will follow!
Perhaps a bit on the dramatic side, but if you can’t write bombastic music, what’s the point? Bits and pieces of this song find their way into numerous episodes of The Bright Path Podcast, which tells you how much I like it.
In Finery Valley, Basil sets new plans in motion–now assisting the White Knights. Rufus expresses his earnest desire for the biggest boomstick that money can buy, and also a pony. Two fresh armies arrive in the valley, and Colonel Ratwurst finds not all to his liking. Daven spills new secrets to Rufus, and Rufus backs Devi into a corner with an irresistible request.
Hobb’s grand tour of the King’s home sparks a new revelation by Merrily, and Merrily sparks an adjustment of the First Minister’s trousers. King Leeland issues Hobb an ultimatum. Hobb tries desperately to wrest a concession from The Kettle, but comes up empty.
