“Lamia” was full of plot holes. And not the little plot holes in other episodes that you can step over and go on merrily about your shipping way. Big plot holes. Plot holes like craters in which merry, way-finding shippers going jauntily along can fall into and twist their merry, way-finding ankles.

Jesus, Gwen. Jesus.
