In this episode we cover the first two parts of A Silent Way, one of our favorite Steel Ball Run arcs... and not just because it features Gyro Zeppeli singing about mozarella cheese. We get some of the best ensemble writing and character development yet. Gyro Zepelli convinces a 14 year old girl to commit treason. Diego Brando decides that a good jockey retirement plan is being Mayor of New York City. And Gyro maybe, finally, sort of figures out that the 2000 year old guy they're digging up parts of might, maybe, be someone he's heard of.
