1943 - Episode Twelve 

"Embers of Evil"

Having escaped another exploding building, Batman and Robin find themselves on the trail of the missing Linda.

John and writer Jim Beard are back in the Batcave and the two are not at all impressed with this episode.  There really isn't a whole lot to say as it's the shortest episode of the serials and of this podcast.  We do continue to lament the loss and lack of sense of loss of Colton to this story.
