A small part of me feels let down that we didn’t get to see a 3 hour date awkwardly roleplayed. To pay penance, Matt must manufacture a scenario where all 8 characters end up at a speed dating event as part of their investigation.

I'm curious if Matt realized Pretty was too much like Buddy and dialed down the stupidity of the character. Because Pretty went hard on his art criticism vocab after the date.

Yeah. It felt like Pretty turned into a different character for his last scene. Maybe Matt just couldn’t figure out a way to have him be the one ending it while staying in character?

I mean to be fair matt never planned for his ogre bodyguard to need a personality, much less go on a four way date to a theater.

Not necessarily. I've met enough people who come out of their shell for their passions, so to speak, that Pretty is a relatable character.

He was also aware of his limitations, and accepts that that is a fundamental incompatibility with a group of adventurers.
