New Words: 1806, spread out over three bits of the S.P. Most of it for a DVD extra for "Refining Fire" and the Missing Scene in the beginning of "Knock On Coffins," which means I can start the first scene of actual plot in KOC tomorrow, unless my illustrious co-conspirator returns "Refining Fire" tonight or tomorrow. Another little bit is future history that might never get used, as it's about 24 episodes down the road, and honestly I bet The Boss is gonna say no to half of it. Even if the dialogue amuses the heck out of me.
