Nice of the conductor to let Mina stay for the night. Enjoyed the scene with the trio, the part about 'the fear' makes me wonder if there will be something serious with them in the future.

Delightful. I love the full range of emotions that Bat goes through in her exchange with the archivists. Sometimes you just gotta shake out the sillies.
I am right there with Bat about the open sea.
