New storyline! Getting back to our main couple, and starting it off with a bang. (*rimshot*)

But don’t worry, we didn’t just skip over a ton of buildup, their waking-world relationship still has a good ways to go.
The title is a callback to the 2017 “Borrowing Limits” storyline. Welsh people aren’t a thing in-universe; Tiernan’s comment is a fourth-wall-breaking Winsor McKay reference.
[mmmmm . . . ]
Thorn: I am wanted to have this doing for such long time.
Leif: Thorn . . . I know exactly what you mean.
Thorn: I love you. What do you want me to do to you? Or you to me. Anything.
Leif: Dear . . .
Leif (singing): Lock us up / Pretend that there’s no other way for a country to be / You can’t say it enough / We won’t just forget that we’re people, and we have dreams
Thorn: What . . . ?
Phone alarm: I’ll be back! Soon you’ll see! You’ll discover that you can’t hold me!
Tiernan (thinking): Shouldn’t have had the Welsh rarebit before bed, huh.
