    So as far as the Toffee thing I honestly think this character is just dead. I think it was a red herring to lead us to believe that we would get a toffee comeback this season (the design was intentional) but it turns out that the 2 big bads we will have to deal with is Heinous and Ludo. It’s just what I think. I kinda think it’s a funny gag to have this villain that looks like toffee and get the fandom all in a tissy just for it to be nothing. Although maybe it’s a little to meta of a reason. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

      That’d be really interesting if the design was a big red herring. Very interesting storytelling choice. I love Toffee so I have to hope it’s him but definitely possible he’s dead.

    I am not going to lie, Marco’s two friends, I had to look it up for Alfonso, I remember Ferguson because that is a name you don’t forget.

    But yeah Janna is a massive upgrade from those two. I am glad you two are finally in on Janna.

    Marco’s new wallet, it reminds of these diary locks that they sell to teenage girls to keep their little brothers from reading it in the commercials. So Star and Janna are the little brothers and Marco is the big sister, way to subvert it.

    Miss Heinous is a lot of things, but one thing she is not is a monster raciest like the rest of Mwny. If you want Heinous redemption, we can start with that.

    You know what I want to see, Ponyhead and Brittany, Ponyhead saying she has a crush on her self, I really think Brittany feels the same way about herself.

      I forgot to mention that I was saddened by no Brittany at the sleepover!!!! How did I forget? 🙁 Henious being maybe not as bad as the Muiny royals is really interesting. I wonder if the show will ever really get into stuff like that.

        Why would Brittany show up at Star’s sleepover if she dislike her so much? Best you can hope for is a mention by Star “I invited Brittany but I guess she can’t make it” going on the whole Star is blind to Brittany’s dislike.

        You did mention Star loves people, she loves to make friends, Brittany is a great example, Star really believes their friends, because she sees the best in people and loves people.

          Was why Starfan13 there???? She’s not even a real character! If she can be there then so can Brittany!! And yes Star would want to be friends with her so I think that could make sense.

            Well go back to “Brittany’s Party” there is a scene at the beginning when Star and Starfan13 show off each others lockers.

            My head canon she heard about the sleep over and just showed up uninvited and no one tried to stop her, knowing Star she would go with the flow.

    I always thought Janna messing with Marco was not out of malice, but out of affection. And no doesn’t mean a romantic way, and “Sleepover” confirms that it is not romantic, but when Janna does those things to get on Marco’s nerves, it is coming from a positive place, she doesn’t hate Marco.

      I want to add, in a way though less serial killer hint Janna is the Onion to Marco’s Steven.

        No don’t make that comparison!! But yeah I like Janna just liking Marco as a person and not romantically.
