Vidcund Curious decides to strike before it’s too late. The investigation continues at Olive Specter’s yard, as the Two Racing Men, Xu and Ivanov, deliver an outsider’s perspective on the situations in STM. Kent Capp gets a flood of memories from 1997, and wonders where Bianca Monty‘s place is in all of that.
If STM 1.10-1.11 are a parody of “possible accusations of Gary Stu”, then 2.05(B) is a parody of “bait and switch”. The audience sees the Racing Men on the screen, but it is the story of the main characters that is advancing at that time.
The Capp siblings’ banter is based off a real-life conversation the author had in 1997, the year GTR98 was released.
