Episode Recap

It's a dark and stormy night in an isolated castle. Within, author Edgar Allan Poe begins to write his newest work for the ages, a poem named "The Raven." His inspiration? A raven, perched upon a bust of Pallas in the corner of the room.

Putting pen to paper, Poe begins to write out the first few lines of his classic work. Slowly, painstakingly, he writes out, "When I pondered weak and...", but then comes to a halt. Stumped, Poe drinks a glass of wine and tries to work out the next work. The raven looks stoically down on him. Finally, frustrated, it shrieks out "Weary!" Irritates, Poe throws his wineglass at the bird, writes down its suggestion, and then continues trying to write the rest of "his" poem.
