Tristen sums up the short series Nevertheless and Rachel quickly summarizes the last few episodes of We Best Love: Fighting Mr. Second. We talk more about the few episodes of The Devil Judge that we got more and pine for more. Stick around for more BounPrem, because that's all Rachel talks about now, apparently.

Rachel dives into a little bit of We Best Love before Tristen explores Douluo Continent. We're in the homestretch of My Roommate is a Gumiho but we picked up one of the best shows of 2021, The Devil Judge. If Rachel had her druthers, the episode would have only been a review of Devil Judge. We end the show with a happy (late) birthday to Boun Noppanut!
