This special episode is a must-watch for fans of the series, especially those who were left with questions after season 1.

Spoiler Free TLDR; Most fans will enjoy this, but the potential it had was wasted so badly that I'd argue it added nothing and was not needed; very cookie-cutter/uninspired. Not only that, initially the way to view this was not worth the effort nor money due to it being at an event. It's now available on streaming platforms and due to that fact, I will have a score that will reflect that.
Day 1 score Lowest 01/10 (Lowest acknowledges lack of availability and what-if's/wasted-potential,) Highest 05/10 (Highest ignores availability and what-if's/wasted-potential)
Present Day Lowest 03/10 (Acknowledges what-if's/wasted-potential,) Highest 05/10 (Ignores what-if's/wasted-potential)
