Show Notes

Let's chat about Bow & Glimmer's similarities in their sortings, and why it leads to such a disastrous break between them in the penultimate season; about why Catra has a hard time understanding Adora's decisions and loyalties in a new context; about how Adora puts her faith in powers external to her (her battle plans, her sword) when the real She-Ra lives inside her. 

Shadow Weaver, Bow, and our host Kat share a Secondary sorting -- and this whole television show is FILLED with Gryffindors.
