Episode Info:

Fate is a mind-blowing concept. At least it was when we were 16 years old and experimenting with drugs and/or poetry for the first time. Even after all these years, though, fate can still be fun to think about. Do we have free will? If we do, how much force can our piss-ant little existences really exert? Can we actually change our destinies? Or are we travelling along a fixed path laid out for us long ago by some jackass with diarrhea?

In part four of our five-part story, Kingston discovers he might have a closer tie to fate than he ever thought.
