Media References and Puns of Episode 58: A Cycle of Vengeance

Hotis, it seems, will never be satisfied.  He wants to be in the room where it happens, but he’s willing to wait for it.  So, he’s decided to take a break in the Nine Hells.  When push comes to shove, though, he will kill Vax’s friends and family to remind him of Hotis’ love (of himself).  And that would be enough. ….Just go listen to Hamilton
