    Seems they are getting away from...the stand alone zany episodes -


    and are spending an enormous amount of time of the "building up" process...

    I dunno.



    Trilogy Time was pretty recent.


    As was Burning Beekeeper


    I'd argue Magician's Code Part One resorted to a lot of mini stories to make it unique enough.

    Hmmm, I think that is common in series that are reaching the end... The writers/producers/creators want to take time in tying it up, finishing the series instead of stand alone episodes etc. Like I think of Buffy. The last season, there wasn't alot of 'stand alone' episodes, more a lot tying into the bigger picture.
