The Dark Three talk about Claudia Tiedemann—her intelligence, ability to learn and adapt, and dedication to her ultimate goal of saving her daughter, Regina. They posit that her empathy is perhaps her greatest virtue, and even though she may not be the one who finally broke the cycle, the Dark Three agree she may have been the only person in all of Winden who was ever capable of doing so in the first place.

Welcome to the Season 3 of the podcast!
