In this episode we tackle the conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable trilogy, Glass. If you haven't seen the film yet, beware, the last half of this episode is full of spoilers, but we'll warn you about them when we're done with our monthly playing/watching segment. Spoiler alert: Mr. Glass sees dead people! David Dunn was a ghost the whole time!
