In this episode Pete and Gino discuss the conclusions of several major franchises as a way to think about how and why stories end the way they do. We also explore why so many stories seem to have open endings and why popular characters so often have plot armor. We finish up by contemplating why smaller franchises can take larger risks with their conclusions. Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, MTG: War of the Spark, Moby Dick, Oedipus, and the original Sherlock Holmes.
