You did not wonder who ‘they’ were. Some mysteries aren’t questions to be answered, but just the kind of opaque fact — a thing which exists to be not known.
– A Story about You
There are two men in the car. The man who is not tall watches a house through the window. He makes no attempt to hide what he is doing.
The car is similarly clear about its existence.
What they do is secret, but there is no need to hide it. Not in this town.
- A Story About Them
This analysis focuses on three characters or character groupings found throughout A Story About Them: first, the partner-team of the man who is not short and the man who is not tall; their supervisor; and the Smiling God.
That meta somehow sweetened the pill of the episode for me. For some (I suspect personal) reasons I find “A Story About Them” the most upsetting and unsettling installment of WTNV to date because it featured a betrayal where person dependent on other person was betrayed by that other person. And the fact that The Man Who Is Not Tall didn’t want to betray his partner only doubles the pain.
