Video Description

"Sometimes, the most troubling issues we face are ones we’re too frightened or hesitant to talk about with others. In this episode, Thomas deals with some troubling thoughts from the night before, and it has the Sides at odds with how to address the situation, if at all. And it doesn’t help that a new force is bringing all of this forbidden thinking about. Hope you all enjoy!
