Season 4: Expanded

Hopping in to expand the list of expanded discussions (hehe) with another season (one that I think is super underrated!) that’s gotten an intriguing expansion: Season 4! Unlike season 7, it’s not super contradictory storywise but the EU does add a lot to the characterization and story of this season. What do you think of this season? Does the expanded universe add to the season for you as much as it does for me?

Oh for sure. It fits the team really well for some reason. Maybe it’s the fact that all three companions are children of war?
