And so we wind back into School Raze, leaving What Lies Beneath behind. It's certainly not my craziest episode-mixing (though I'm curious what y'all think IS the craziest / favorite / most impressive), but I like the simplicity of how these episodes just ended up fitting together to create one longer adventure.

Any stories about an NPC that should have died because the PCs took so long rescuing him/her, but you fudged it and just had them super roughed up because they needed to tell the party plot stuff?

This happens to be my biggest pet peeve regarding Mass Effect 2. The game presents a slew of party loyalty missions; side quests to the main mission based on your team mates. Some of them are presented as direly critical, needing to be done right then and there; nevertheless, you may do them whenever you want and the game does not penalize you if you put them off.

But then you get to what is presented as just another mission. You leave, and the Normandy is attacked and its crew taken captive (save Joker). The game tells you that you need to go rescue them, but does nothing to set this as different from the other direly important missions you needed to do right then (that you didn't actually have to do right then).

So by the time I get around to going on that final mission, only Dr. Chakwas was still alive (and only because the game scripted her as the one remaining survivor, no matter how long you put it off).

Ocellus isn't in Queen Chrysalis' form anymore?

Possibly outside the region where that illusion was being maintained.

The screencaps in this comic are from a different episode, so Ocellus wouldn't be.

In-narrative, the way that worked was that as long as Ocellus was in the school catacombs, she could use the Chrysalis form, but she wasn't trapped in it.

So, either Ocellus has chosen to remain in her normal form or, as Draxynnic states, they're no longer in the catacombs where she could use the Chrysalis form.

Breaking the illusion lifted the form-lock she had on her. She can shift into Chryssy when it's go-time.

Presumably she's simply not shifting right now, since Spud mentioned being excited to use more Chryssy expressions.

Giving the villain kudos is a double edged sword.

Whereas giving the villain a double-edged sword could be worthy of kudos.

That was the most crazy mix of episodes yet
