  • A fake fortune teller finds out the hard way that you shouldn't fool with the gods for a quick buck.

    Although this ep is pretty average, for this series that means it's still decent. When a fake fortune teller is given tarot cards that she can't get rid of that only predict horrible deaths for her clients, she finds out too late that the gods don't take too well to doling out nothing but happy endings to make a quick buck and get repeat business. I have to disagree with the plot synopsis on the front page a little- I think the last fortune teller our protagonist tries to pass the cards on to is the real deal, which is why she gets it in the end.
