Outstanding episode. Will definitely be joining "Hollow As the World" on my mental list of People's Choice contenders.
This was one of those rare stories that I loved the first time I heard it, and then after hearing the ending and outtro, listened to it a second time just to enjoy it even more on a new level. It's really, really hard to pull off a twist that works that well, and actually makes the story even more compelling when you revisit it.
Specifically, it was the characters that really got me, and the journal format. Intimate, warm, and moving. It left me thinking about the nature of love, and how you can stand up under the worst circumstances if there's someone to share the burden with you.
“If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.” --Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights
