I hope you are all enjoying this wonderfully green day.
After PLTR reached $20 yesterday u/ZanderPerk
- a stranger from this subreddit - gave me $400 USD to cover the costs of my PS5. I already have the console in hand, and there is a custom bumper sticker coming in his honour. You can read the full story here: https://www.reddit.com/wallstreetbets/comments/jzrj3y/legend_of_the_wsb_ps5_i_promise_to_pay_plt
As promised, I will be paying it forward and giving some other lucky Palantir bull a Digital Edition PS5 if PLTR’s stock price reaches $30.00 this year. Here is how it will work:
The day Palantir touches 30.00 (before the end of 2020) I will come back to WSB and post a form for you to enter the draw. The winner will then be contacted and we will arrange for you to get your PS5 as soon as possible.
And it gets better.
It must be the season of giving, because another generous redditor - u/degenerate-hotdog
has reached out to me and offered to cover the costs of TWO other PlayStation 5’s.
That’s right. There are THREE PLAYSTATION 5
’s being given away if Palantir hits $30 this year.
How do I enter?
When Palantir hits $30, I will post a form on this subreddit for you to complete to enter the draw. Messages sent to me and comments in this or other threads do not count as entering the draw. The winner will be selected directly from the survey results.
What information will be required to enter?
The form will only ask for your 1) reddit username, 2) an email address and 3) your selection of a number between 1 and 1,000,000. Do not give anyone any other information who may be posing as someone who is part of this draw. I will be doing the draw, and those are the only 3 details I will be asking for. <- This part is important. Don’t get scammed.
How can I find the post to enter?
There are three ways to ensure you don’t miss the post. You can follow me on reddit and get notifications about when I post. Also, when Palantir reaches $30, the post will be titled “$PLTR - WSB PLAYSTATION 5 DRAW”. I will also update THIS post with a link to the draw.
What exact price action will trigger the draw?
If Palantir touches $30.00 USD before the end of 2020 the draw will occur. That means that even if it touches and then retreats, the draw will still occur.
How will the draw be done?
There will be a 48 hour window from when the post is created to enter. I will post the exact draw closing time in the post. When entry closes, I will remove the link to the entry form from the post. After all entries have been collected, I am going to log into World of Warcraft, on a character aptly named Palantir. I will then use the World of Warcraft loot rolling system to roll for a random number between 1 and 1,000,000. This rolling system is entirely random. I will “/roll 1000000” ONCE and then I will check that number against a spreadsheet of all the entries. Whoever is closest will win. The entire WoW draw and spreadsheet lookup process will be recorded and I will post it on YouTube. Winners will be announced on the draw post, along with the recording of the draw process.
How many winners will there be?
There will be 3 winners. The closest 3 numbers will be given a console. However, I only personally guarantee the console for the first closest number. The second and third consoles are u/degenerate-hotdog
How will winners be contacted?
Winners will be contacted via email and reddit private message, using the addresses and usernames collected via the form.
What if they don’t respond?
You will have 7 days to respond before I move on to the next winner.
What if u/degenerate-hotdog changes his mind?
What if there is a tie?
In the event that two numbers are the same distance from the drawn number and there is a tie, whoever can prove to me that they were bullish on Palantir first wins. A bullish reddit post about why you like the company will suffice, as there are no financial requirements for this draw.
How will the winner get their PS5?
The PS5 that I am giving away will be ordered from Amazon, Walmart, Bestbuy or Gamestop straight to an address of your choosing. If you don’t want to reveal your personal address, we can send it to a post office box or your place of work. Alternatively, we can try to set up in-store pick up.
With regards to u/degenerate-hotdog
, he has told me that he wants to do GameStop gift cards instead. In any case, I will do my best to put the second and third place winners in touch with him, and how you get your prize from him is between the two of you.
What if we can’t get one because they are all sold out?
We will try to get one for a couple of weeks. If we are struggling to get one, I will send you an appropriate gift card valued at $400 USD.
What if some unforeseen challenge prevents us from getting a PS5 sent to me?
I will send you a gift card, intended to be used on a PS5.
Will you buy a more expensive one from a scalper?
Negative. Regular price from a reputable retailer only.
In order to qualify you must be over the age of 18, a member of this subreddit and you must be bullish on Palantir. Your reddit account must be older than this post, so you cannot create new accounts to enter multiple times. You do not have to own a security or option relating to Palantir, but bulls are encouraged to participate. I am not sure that I can legally provide kickbacks to individuals, so I am choosing to just remove the position requirement to be safe. You must also reside in a country that receives shipments from Walmart, Amazon, Bestbuy and/or Gamestop.
Please do not enter if you or your family members will not play the PS5. These things are in high demand.
Do I have to get a PS5?
Can I pay the extra to get a disc edition?
Yes, but you will have to send me $100 USD plus transfer fees first.
Can I get an xbox?
No. Xbox sucks.
Can I get cash instead?
What does the winner have to do?
Winners will be asked to please post a picture of their PS5 on WSB and tag myself and u/degenerate-hotdog
in it. We would also strongly encourage you to pay this forward at the next aggressive Palantir price target or resistance point.
Is this legal?
There are no laws preventing me from giving away gifts, and I am not requiring you to take any trading action to enter this draw. So yes. This is legal.
UPDATE: I will not be collecting email addresses as per a moderator's command.
UPDATE 2: u/darkcanon says he is buying a PS5 console for the 4th place winner as well.
UPDATE 3: u/wsbMM says he is buying an Xbox Series X for the 5th place winner as well.
Do you smell that? That's the smell of retirement brunch.
Death of the Insert
Arriving back at Sanctum, Jackson and Raven manage defib on Emori, but she is still on the brink. Murphy offers his blood as a transfusion, and they send Raven back to help the others. Murphy tells her before she leaves that once their friends are safe, she must save Madi and stop Cadogan.
On Bardo, Bill of the swishy hair is on his way to start the terrible fate no one believes in, with Clarke hot on his tail, going full John Wick in the hallway and gunning down a bunch of faceless Disciples. For the cause! Levitt is still not into this whole murder spree thing, and remarks that they don't deserve transcendence if this is the answer. One of the Disciples conveniently drops a sword that Octavia picks up, while also handing Levitt the gun of one of his fellow tank babies.
But they arrive in the stone room too late! Bill has already opened a portal into the other realm, and is now strolling along the space dock from Treasure Planet. "Callie" appears to Bill, and he reminisces about the time he took her fishing on the ol' dock. He realizes quickly that it's not Callie, but that his mind chose the image of her, because the aliens take the form of the subject's greatest teacher or greatest failure.
Bill is like, "God? Is that you?" and the Alien Callie says she is his judge. Bill concludes that Jordan was right, it is actually a test. Alien Callie explains that Becca refused the test, and she asks Bill if the human race is now ready to assimilate. Bill of course, says they are ready, because he slept through all six previous seasons. Alien Callie tells him they will ask him questions and he must answer truthfully, they will know if he lies. If he gives good answers, he and the rest of humanity will become one with the aliens, but if they fail, they will be wiped out. A win-win scenario!
The alien begins by asking Bill why he tried to erase love, but before he can answer, Clarke sneaks up from behind and shoots him in the head. And then continues to shoot his dead body on the beautiful space dock in front of the very important alien judge. I don't know if this was meant to be funny? Has this show been a comedy of errors all along?
Sending the Raven
Inside the earth bunker, the other are still trying to dig their way out, and Gaia has apparently gone hunting? Somewhere? Jordan and Hope have a quick makeout session in the old Blodreina throne room before they're interrupted by the portal opening, and Raven arriving with Nikki and some of the other prison miners. Raven and Indra quickly fill each other in on who is where and why, while the miners use the subatomic leaf blower to break through the collapsed rubble. They get reunited with Niylah and Echo, before Jordan hatches a plan to distract Bill's army.
Jordan arrives on Bardo, and uses one of the miner's energy weapons to EMP all the Disciple tech, then they bring Prisonkru and Wonkru through the portal, and all of them take positions opposite the Disciples, and then just...wait.
Miller has stayed behind on Sanctum, where he's reunited with Jackson, telling him he's never leaving him again. Jackson has stabilized Emori, but they need to remove the rebar still sticking out of her. But as they hold her down and start to remove the bar, Emori flatlines, and Jackson can't revive her. Murphy loses it, screaming at Jackson to do something, but there is nothing he can do. Emori is dead. :(
A little while later, Murphy picks up a scalpel, telling Jackson to take out Emori's mind drive. He wants it put in his head. Jackson argues that they know from Clarke and Josie that two minds can't exist in the same head, and Murphy will slowly die. Murphy doesn't care, and starts to cut the drive out himself, while Miller whispers to Jackson that if he died and Miller could see him again this way, he would do the same thing. So Jackson stops Murphy, and offers to do the procedure for him.
How Much Fuck Is Too Much Fuck To Unfuck?
On Bardo, Levitt is painting Octavia's warrior makeup in the middle of the hallway bloodbath, and has just realized that if Clarke can't stop Bill, she will have to take the personality quiz for the entire human race. Octavia tearfully asks if Bellamy will transcend, and Levitt say he won't because he's already dead and only the living can transcend (hmmm). Octavia and Levitt share a mutual agreement that if they are gonna die today because of Clarke or Bill, then they would have liked to have lived a little first.
Invisible Raven and Echo interrupt, asking for an update report on the Madi rescue. Octavia is like, "You're too late for all that, everything depends on how sympathetic our protagonist is to the aliens now" and Raven is like "she went where to what!?" while Levitt is all paranoid about them just strolling into the enemy base.
Raven tells him to chill, that they brought an army to distract the Disciples. Levitt has to explain that it's a bad thing to start even a pretend war while their future hangs in the balance of judgy aliens with the mystical powers of crystal destruction. And they briefly divert for Echo to apologize for the whole near-genocide thing, because she was having an off-day. Octavia cuts this short and runs off to stop the war with Levitt and Echo, while Raven is left to try and fish Clarke out of the white light.
Inside said ball of light, Clarke's feeling better now she's murdered Bill, but is confused about why she's still stuck inside the space port. The alien returns, appearing as Lexa, and Clarke runs to hug her. The alien tries to explain she is not really Lexa, but Clarke doesn't want to ruin the moment for the fans. Clarke realizes the test hasn't been stopped, and Alien Lexa tells her the bad news that she's now the one who has to be judged. Oops!
Alien Lexa begins by asking her why she shot an unarmed Bill in the back of the head, and why is her need for revenge more important than the fate of humanity. Clarke argues it's not revenge, it's justice. Alien Lexa is like "potato, potato". Clarke says that her imposter ex doesn't know her pain, but the alien says that during the test she can feel all of Clarke, including her pain. Clarke then fires back that she should feel her pain over the real Lexa then, her pain over watching her own mother be body-snatched, and her having to kill her best friend to save her child...the child she was gonna put down without consent or second opinion...but let's not ruin the moment.
The alien observes that when Clarke suffers she inflicts pain on others, and that is not justice. That she claims she does this for her people, but all people are one people, as Bill believed. Clarke argues that Bill created a loveless system and killed Madi to get to the test, and suggests that actually maybe the big meta alien audience judging all her actions is the real problem! Clarke calls out the aliens for judging her actions when they spend their time tossing a coin on annihilating whole species. She says that she did this for love, while the aliens are just playing games, and they are no better than her.
The alien says they are sorry for all she has lost, but if Clarke represents humanity, then they are not worthy to evolve, and their fight is over.
Love is Death
Emori wakes up in bed, and goes to the window, seeing the desert of the Deadzone outside. Murphy appears, telling her she is beautiful, and that while he would have preferred their cave, the first place they met is a nice choice too. Emori realizes she died, and Murphy explains that this was unacceptable, and they're now in the mindspace. Emori works out that Murphy put her chip in his head, and that he will die too unless he takes it out. Murphy explains that he wont take it out, without her he is only surviving, not living. He will take a few hours with her over a lifetime without her.
Emori, the truest hero, is devastated at the thought of Murphy dying for her, and starts yelling at Jackson to wake Murphy up. Murphy holds her, saying it was his choice. They hear music playing somewhere, and Murphy asks her to dance, so they do. Outside in the Sanctum lab, Jackson and Miller are listening to music and dancing too, while an unconscious Murphy lies in a chair next to Emori's body.
Back at Bardo, Clarke returns from the light, where Raven is waiting for her. Clarke says she failed, and that the aliens should have picked Raven instead. Raven asks if they can change their minds, and Clarke doesn't know, running off to be with Madi before the end. Raven is going to follow her, but the white orb turns red. Raven decides screw it, and touches the red light.
The alien magic brings Raven to the Ark, and the alien appears to her as Abby. The alien asks her why she is here when the test is over, but Raven defends Clarke, saying she gave up her own humanity to spare theirs, and committed atrocities to save them all. The alien says they're sorry, and Raven accuses them of feeling nothing. She says they should be allowed to live, even if they aren't allowed to ascend, so that they can keep trying to do better. Alien Abby points out that even as they speak, the humans are waging war on one another, and teleports them to the field where the Disciples are poised and facing off against Wonkru.
Raven explains it was all a diversion, that it proves nothing, but Alien Abby has seen all previous seasons, and knows that the fighting will continue. She points out Sheidheda, who is lurking in the bushes. Raven tries to stop him, but they can't hear or see her. Sheidheda fires off a few rounds at the Disciples, instigating the war because he's such a cheeky little wildcard. On their way to stop it are Echo, Octavia and Levitt. Levitt moves ahead and runs out into the middle of the battleground, lowering his weapon, and telling everyone this is not the last war. He tells them that they will not transcend through violence, that Bill was wrong, and that they're in the middle of a very important test they cannot fuck up!
But Sheidheda guns down Levitt, proving the aliens right, and the Disciples open fire. Indra meanwhile, has spotted Sheidheda in the trees. Octavia and Echo rush out into the the firing line and drag Levitt back to safety, and Echo gets shot in the process, but tells Octavia she will not lose Bellamy and his sister too. Hope rushes to be with Octavia, while inside the compound, Clarke has returned to Madi, saying sorry that she failed everyone.
The alien is like, "told ya", and says its time for Raven to go. In the woods, a dying Levitt tells Octavia she has to stop the war, and she hurries away, telling Hope and Jordan to take care of Echo and Levitt to make sure they don't die so they can transcend. Octavia yells to Indra to hold their fire, but Sheidheda pops up to rile Wonkru into a frenzy, until Indra borrows the old subatomic leaf-blower and zaps him into vapor!
Let's All Go To The Rapture
Octavia steps out onto the battlefield, putting down her sword, and asking the Disciples WTF they're doing. This is not fighting for all mankind, it is a fight against mankind, they are all one crew, and if they kill each other, there will be no one left to save. THEIR FIGHT IS OVER. She looks to Indra, who raises her sword and throws it down too, and the rest of Wonkru also drops their weapons and walks towards Octavia. Octavia appeals to the Disciples, saying she knows they're afraid to walk away from what they trained for, that she is too, but that Bellamy believed that transcendence was possible, that he died for that belief, and will never get there. Octavia says that if they fight this war, they don't deserve to find out if Bellamy was right, they don't deserve to survive. Octavia says that she's learned from war that the only way to win is not to fight, and then she runs back into the woods to be with Levitt. Echo begins to slip away, and Octavia tells Hope to perform CPR.
On the battlefield, The Disciples lay down their weapons, each one saying "for all mankind" (big oofs if you were playing the drinking game), and Raven points out to Alien Abby that they can change, they just need more time.
In the woods, Echo becomes glowy gold light and floats up into the sky, then Levitt does too, remarking there's no pain. Then Hope and Jordan get raptured too, and Octavia is like "oh dip! Bellamy was right!". Wonkru and the Disciples float away too, then Octavia, then Raven. On Sanctum, Jackson and Miller go next, followed by Memori who were busy fucking in their mind space.
Clarke is cradling Madi, and she starts to glow too, but keeps resisting. Clarke realizes Raven passed the test, and tells Madi it's okay to go. She tells Madi's light ball she loves her as she floats away. Outside she walks among all the gold light traces left behind by everyone else, then she returns to Sanctum, where everyone is also gone too. Well, almost everyone. Picasso the dog runs to greet Clarke!
Are We Lost?
Clarke seems pretty chill with being left behind, and hops back to earth, telling Picasso they will get shelter today and food tomorrow. Picasso runs away to chase some mutant squirrels, and Clarke runs after her, ending up at the beach, where she admits that she doesn't want to be alone. The alien appears as Lexa again, telling her she's not alone. Clarke tries to walk off, saying she gets that she has to bear it so the others don't have to. Alien Lexa teases that humans are curious and they're already having a great time with the new additions to their collection.
Clarke asks if the aliens came back for her, and Alien Lexa says no, her actions must have consequences. Clarke's a little pissed off, saying that she can't be the only terrible person ever, but the alien says she's the only one who has murdered someone during the test, which is against the rules.
Clarke asks about Madi, and the alien explains that Madi has joined their consciousness, that she will never know pain or die, and that she knew staying with Clarke would mean never being with anyone her own age, and she knew Clarke would never want that. She reveals that Madi felt better knowing Clarke would not be alone. Clarke realizes that transcending is a choice and that people can come back, and Alien Lexa says yes of course, but no one ever did it before. Clarke turns around, where she hears laughter, and sees the others are setting up camp on the beach. By others I mean: Mackson, Memori, Jope, Levtavia, Niylah, Raven, Echo, Indra, and Gaia on green screen. Alien Lexa says they'll never reproduce, and wont ascend when they die, so like...goodbye to the human race? The alien says humans are a curious species, then disappears, leaving Clarke to hug all her friends and start her new life on earth. TL;DR Bill will not be your savior. A L I E N S! Jordan and Bellamy were right. Murphy and Emori mind fuck. Clarke fails the test. Raven and Octavia pass the test. War! What is it good for? Sheidheda vs leaf blower. Humanity gets assimilated. Clarke retires. Adventure Squad Plus returns to earth. Picasso survives! RIP human race.
this and that
Aaaand that's the last ever recap. How we feeling? Thanks for reading and participating!
- PrincessMechanic, looks like maybe you won this one. Cheers to you!
- It's an old beef, but I'm glad Raven finally got her moment after she was robbed in S3.
- I too would die for Emori to live rent free in my head.
- So souls are real, but also a digital copy of someone counts as life enough to transcend? Did anyone watch the WWDITS episode where they seance themselves?
- Wish they'd spent more time investing in friendships for Clarke over the seasons.
- I know people already touched on this last week, but I do agree there are concerns to be had over the treatment of Madi in these last two episodes. I'm sorry to anyone who was disturbed and upset by this.
- Fave moments? Least favorite? What will you miss the most?
- Cabin in the Woods!
