Yes, well. Good question.


2023-02-11 Rerun commentary: There's something to be said for just going along for the ride.

Creatures immune to fire are among the scariest of things. We think of fire as the ultimate cleansing force, that should be able to deal with anything, as long as it has some shred of connection to the natural world. So the idea of something being so unearthly that it's immune to fire feeds straight into some of our deepest fears.
