Countdown to Ep 4 - "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls"

Hideli-hodeli, Sam & Max-arinos!

Mike Stemmle here, writer and co-designer on Episode 304 of Sam & Max, a.k.a. "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls."

As this penultimate episode in our senses-shattering series careens its way through the approval process, getting ever nearer to your grubby little hands, mice, and joysticks, now seems like a good time to open up the thread for "insider" questions of various sorts.

Allow me to prime the pump with some tantalizing tidbits of info:

- The identity of this episode's villain is a big mystery.
- A character who hasn't been seen this season will return.
- Horrible things will be done to the Delorean. I mean the DeSoto. Dang, that's gonna cause problems, isn't it?
- Mr. Norrington will reveal himself.
- Stinky's "Mr. S" will make himself known.
- Grandpa Stinky will experience a great deal of joy.
- This episode features an exceptionally lame gag that I've been waiting nearly two freaking decades to make.

Oh, and we get to read everyone's mind.

    Hugh Bliss. Right? Right? Please? Right?

  • Seconding the notion that those Sams are somehow related to Anubis. I've had my suspicions ever since playing the episode, and there was some discussion on the matter over on the Speculation Thread.

    Then again, I just really want one of my crackpot theories to be true :D

    One expected role, one unexpected, not necessarily in that order.

    2.will max be able to use the toys of power maximus could use(minus astral projection of course)


    Innnnnteresting question. And who said we'll never be using astral projection again?

    3.Will we get to abuse more of the foreign guy.


    He was the last guy cut from this episode :(

    @tbm1986 said: Is this the episode where we find out how the power core and Carol the scanner came to be amongst the rubbish in the sewer? I distinctly remember Max asking Sam how the power core came to be down there and instead of saying "that's not important" or "that's for another time, little buddy", he definitely said "that's for another episode".

    Answers (of a sort) will be coming in the fifth episode. Promise.

    @Hungryfreak said: Mike: Are those really Sam clones or are they of a different nature (time travel duplicates, relatives, aliens that happen to look like Sam, shapeshifters, etc...)?

    That's a very good question. It's answered after the first act.

    Hey all,

    Sorry I've been out of touch for the past couple o' days, but I've been a little busy fixing some hint bugs for episode five, churning out a few pickup lines for Sam, and taking meetings down at Universal for the Other Game with the Cool Car that Starts with a "De."

    I'll now pause for a second while you collectively play Vivaldi's Concerto for the World's Tiniest Violins in D Minor...

    Now that you're mentally back, here's the title card for episode 4, the first of a few pieces of teaser art we'll be trickling out this week.

    @Gibbeynator said: Are we ever going to find out what the Devil's Playhouse is? Or is that just the name of the season, and has no influence on the series at large?

    I can guarantee that you will discover what the Devil's Playhouse is by the end of the season.

    I mean, aside from the allusion to those beloved old television shows...
