    It absolutely should be, whoops.

    Eh, it was introduced a while ago and then Jay didn't appear for like two years, and once she got reintroduced she was mainly interacting with Grace and Susan. Totally understand losing track of it.

    Or an elf creature that comes back from the dead?

    We don't really know what Hope wants to tell Sarah, do we?

    (If she wants to befriend her again, simply telling Sarah "Hi, I'm Hope, but you knew me as Box" would be A LOT more direct. But I guess Hope is not in a good place to do direct communication right now.)

    I've been assuming it's something to do with Pandora's Box. She's using a specific weird and noteworthy card, which is probably central to the message.

    Girls being nice -
    Boys: "Is this flirting?"

    Girls Flirting -
    Boys: <No thoughts, empty head> Or maybe "Is this person playing me for a fool? Am I being pranked?"

    To be fair to Rich, he probably never had a woman be nice to him or pay him a compliment that wasn't his mom. I doubt anyone has ever flirted with him ever, so it's understandable that he wouldn't be able to recognize it.

    Feels likely this kind of game might actually have a card called "Pandora's Box". Not sure what it would do, exactly, but it's 100% in the right genre.

    I'm guessing that it would probably be a one-cost Artifact that you can tap to exile the top card of each player's library face down, or pay seven, tap and sacrifice it to turn all cards exiled by it face up and then put all permanents into play under their owner's control, but that's just a guess.

    Importantly, whatever the card Hope built her deck around is, it kind of sucks. Like everyone who's seen it has said "wow, never seen anyone try and make that card work".

    Yeah, Pyxis of Pandemonium is pretty bad outside of formats like Commander, where seven mana is actually doable before someone loses.

    I'm not saying the card Hope is using is based on Pyxis of Pandemonium, I just wanted to mention that Magic does have a card based on Pandora's Box~

    Then it might be a pretty good fit!

    The strange mind of Catalina. She jumped to the conclusion that it is that easy to forget someone you genuinely cared about rather than the conclusion that they forgot those guys because they didn't care about them.

    Let's remember - Catalina has only dated one person, ever. For about a year at this point! Even beyond that, there's only one other person she wanted to date (Susan, who said no).

    The idea of "treating guys as disposable wallets to fund their dating habits" and flushing all memory of them afterward is completely foreign to her. For her, dating is something you only do with people you care about.
