Recap: Welcome To Night Vale Ep 25 One Year Later
Night Vale's one year anniversary episode: It's been a year since Carlos first came to town, and Cecil wants to commemorate the occasion.

Tropes present in One Year Later include:

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Carlos calls Cecil to the Arby's parking lot after his adventures.
    Cecil: "What danger are we in? What mystery needs to be explored?"
    Carlos: "Nothing. ...I just wanted to see you."
  • Book Ends: If you consider this the end of the show's first 'season', many of its lines are plot points that directly mirror that of the first episode.
  • Depth Deception: The massive city deep underground turns out to be a tiny city a few feet down.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The Apache tracker dies saving Carlos' life.
  • Relationship Upgrade: After a full year, Carlos returns Cecil's affections, and the two share a tender moment watching the night sky.
  • Tear Jerker: Cecil breaks down on air when he thinks Carlos is dead.

"Today's proverb: Fun game: say “toy boat” over and over. Do it for the rest of your life. Retreat from society, and live on alms. Whisper “toy boat” as you die."
