This was one of those "bridge" episodes.
Nothing really happened, but it set up a bunch of stuff.
Listen people: it's not my favorite thing either, but it's a thing.
So I don't need to give a spoiler alert here, because there isn't really anything...

Harrison Demchick is by his own account an optimist. He doesn't think that human society or our ruling institutions have become irredeemably corrupt. He didn't make one single preparation for this past Friday, when the Mayan calendar came to an abrupt...
