So, with the "won your past x games", does that imply that Paul beast LSV?

I'm glad they didn't lose Cam to dehydration and heat-stroke from the packaging gillysuit. Super-awesome, though. Hope it makes it in the Loading Time :D

The video ended with a few random frames of the feature match area - I didn't see anything hidden, funny, or hinting at anything - did these just sneak in on accident, or am I missing something?

Cam's costume was amazing, I really want to know how long that took to put together (I feel like Tally was involved)

The ticker at the bottom of the Marshall scene at the end was hilarious. I'm gonna go ahead and assume it was Graham who snuck in a certain Mr. Austin's record there.

I thought Marshell knew Friday Nights James, other than that teeny tiny nit pick, such a fun episode.
Just love how many guest appearances you guys managed to cram into this one episode.

Cam's suit was brilliant. Kind of hard to be stealthy in it, though... wrappers crinkle.

The live match that Cam snuck through - was that staged, or did that really happen?

EFro had a feature match in Round 4, but not against Brad Nelson.

How come Marshall says he's never met James before? Didn't James shanghai Marshall into filling out a draft with him in an earlier video?

If he, Marshall, acted like he knew James(in real life or not) then the scene or the skit wouldn't be funny.

Can we safely assume that Paul went 3-0 in draft and ended up 0-5 in Constructed due to everyone else's help in deck construction and scouting?

I think the implied timeline is:
Rounds 1-3: Draft happens; Paul gets slowplay warning while distracted by Cam
Round 4: Kathleen does scouting now that we're in the constructed portion, reports findings to Paul; Paul risks disqualification by lying to a judge.
At this point Paul is 1-3, though we don't know in what order.
Round 5: Loses to LSV, because (a) LSV, (b) Graham.
Rounds 6-7: Wins without incident off-camera
Round 8: Loses to the one rogue deck he refused to have a sideboard plan for.
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
but how about watch phone?

Also, all of those decks that were being used against Paul to test? Could have been killed by a playset of artisan's sorrow. Everything but Kathleen's could have been defeated by a naturalize/reclimation sage. Here's why it's good to put artifact/enchantment hate in your green deck's sideboard, kiddies.

Hell, Unravel the AEther would've worked. That was used in the actual Pro Tour against the Ensoul Artifact decks.

This episode was amazing. One of the best Friday Nights I think they've had in awhile, and Cam was a(n) huge part of that.

You guys keep stepping up your game in these Friday Nights, and I won't be able to stop watching them...Ever...

I'm pretty sure that FridayNights-verse Paul needs to find himself some new friends.

Also, real-life Jer might be able to trust his house with the real-life LRR crew, but FridayNights-verse Jer took a massive risk there by just handing over his keys.
