Final Toast: 

Episode – Don’t call people out by name unless someone specifically ask about that person and your experience. Take the lesson you learned and move on in the best emotional state. Karma will handle them. Call out the experience not the person. You don’t want to get into beef with a shady person.

Season – Look at the lesson and not repeating it, Karma will take care of it. Sometimes destiny is found in the least likely sources.
