Notice information that I’ve missed? Feel free to comment below and I’ll be sure to add.
A close-up of the titular Shade Mother, and her inspriration:
Critical Role: Hello, sweet children…
Critter: Looks like Queen Slug-for-a-Butt from Earthworm Jim.
Matt: She was LEGIT an inspiration for this.
Max shares the troubled mind behind Sam’s face on Laura:
Max: Tremendous shoutouts to Tal Levitas (@TalIsTweeting) for the both the genius idea and the execution of the deepfake. Absolutely would not have been taken to this fantastic next level without him.
Tal: What deepfake? This really happened.
Sam shares some potential taglines for his flask:
Sam: We debated several tag lines:
“He’s Got His Pulse on Crime. She Doesn’t Have One At All.”
“The Coldest Case… is Her Body.”
“To Stop a Murderer – It Takes a Murderee.”
Mark Hulmes: “He’s Dead Set on Stopping Crime. She’s Just Dead.”
Sam: Ding ding ding
Matt clarifies Ashton’s pronouns:
Critter: A little sad that everyone keeps using “He/Him” with Ashton even though Taliesin said Ashton was “They/Them”. Feels….invalidating.
Matt: Ashton is He/They, actually! 🙂
