Jeff Winger: Stop! Stop! Pierce isn't crazy. The table... Is... Magic. As someone who's been on the other side I can tell you, it is a scary, lonely Chang-filled world out there. And sure this group has sprouted some legs, but why are we in such a rush to leave the tide pool. When the only things waiting for us on shore are the sands of time, and the hungry seagulls of slowly growing apart.
