Welcome back to the Dogtrack, Greyhounds! In this episode Marisa, Christian, and Brett have a conversation about Season 2, Episode 11: Midnight Train to Royston
The penultimate episode of season two is fraught with tenuous relationship statuses: Roy and Keeley, Sam and Rebecca, Sharon and Ted, Keeley and... Nate??? So we have a long conversation about the looming tensions that seem to be dividing our beloved AFC Richmond family and what it might mean for the future of these characters who we care about so deeply.
Not to worry, though – we do have a bit of fun, as well. We talk about grown men learning choreography, praise the brilliant use of props in this episode, admire the staying power of "Seven Nation Army," and wonder whether we may have actually met the real-life Banksy in a museum?
