||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 16, 2018 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "6:26 PM and late as usual, it's DJTweeny, just back from Hellmouth."
||||||||| "Hey DJTweeny!" ... DJTweeny turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 6:27 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
||||||||| Catherwood escorts texasdragonfly inside, makes a note of the time (7:17 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| It's 7:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
