    Great site, dude – first time here. But, anyways . . . Thought it could have played a little different at the end there, like Alchemy (yes, okay, “Dr Alchemy”) was trying to hold back Savitar, rather than pulling him out of the hat as an ally when his party got busted up. Sorta felt more like a prophet holding back the doom best he could – maybe an ally for the team, down the track? Or perhaps it’s the tequila talking.
