Recap / Welcome To Night Vale Ep 29 Subway

Go To

"Our black suns move erratically, like drunken bees, and each of them stings. Now, more than ever, we are full of blood and honey. Welcome to Night Vale."

A subway system has somehow appeared, even though the City Council never approved it. Cecil, however, is very pleased at the idea of Night Vale having a mass transit system and encourages it's use.

Tropes present in Subway include:

  • Advertisement:

  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: The subway system.
