Nick and Katie are back to wish everyone a Happy New Year and talk about what they want for their favorite (and not so favorite) Warcraft characters in 2022.

But first, Nick brings up some additional observations about the Sylvanas cinematic they discussed last episode. He talks about how the sequence while Sylvanas is in the coma was cribbed directly from the cinematic where Vol’jin dies.

Then they get off-topic a bit and talk about what they want for Lorthe’mar and Thalyssra. Katie suggests they should have a vacation while Nick wants to see little multi-colored elf babies.

Back to Sylvanas, Nick revisits the discussion about her eyes, and how the Sylvanas we see in the Plaguelands is not actually Sylvanas but a representation of her, and Nick speculates that she wants to have human eyes. This leads to a discussion about how she will be with her soul now united, and speculation about the Sylvanas book. Nick also says he wants Sylvanas to be given human eyeballs.

Next, they talk about Nathanos, who has not been seen since the pre-patch. Nick thinks it would be neat if he was intercepted by Bwonsamdi and the two of them had to work together for reasons. First they track and then team up with Denathrius, and also get joined by Flynn Fairwind and they become an A-Team wandering the Shadowlands righting wrongs.

Then they talk about Zovaal. They decide he should have a santa hat and a wreath on his armor. They get into a discussion comparing Zovaal to N’Zoth and how he could have made a better antagonist.

They also mention Anduin and Katie wants him to not die and be healed, while Nick thinks he should get some hair dye and maybe a tanning bed. Nick also suggests that Anduin’s soul should be split so he can be king but also have a normal life.

For Jaina, they want her to have a vacation and interact with Kael’thas and Arthas. Nick wonders if Arthas could impregnate her at this point.

They discuss Baine and how he should spend time with Mayla.

They also discuss Thrall and how he and his family should get to hang out with Aggra. Nick wants them all to go find Durotan in the Shadowlands. Sunwalker Dezco should also join them.
