Rey and Mikey discuss the unintended side effects of the 'love juice' in this entire episode devoted to Act III, Scene 2 of A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is basically the part of the play where everything falls to shit. There will be sword fights, mud-wrestling virgins, and naked invisible voyeurs watching the whole thing go down.
Rey and Mikey are still in the woods, and things keep getting more fucked up for the lost young lovers of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Act II Scene 2 and Act 3 Scene 1 are discussed in exhaustive, digressive detail. I'd list some of the funny shit in this episode, but I actually don't remember what we talked about. And I just listened to it last night, which is disturbing. Either there's something wrong with me or this episode just isn't very memorable. I'm sure Rey says funny things and Mikey does his silly fairy voices.
Rey and Mikey head into the woods with Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius, and Helena, and meet a bunch of fairies in the darkness and confusion there.

The first episode in Rey and Mikey's discussion of Shakespeare's immortal rom-com A Midsummer Night's Dream. In this extra-long season premiere, they discuss the patriarchy, ancient Greek courting practices, and "the power of the sea". Special appearance by Jason Statham, as Snug the Joiner.

Part one of Rey and Mikey's two-part discussion of Act 5 of Hamlet, in which they learn about Danish Funeral Grappling techniques.
Rey and Mikey finish discussing Act 4 of Hamlet, which does not actually feature any sponges. That was in the last episode, so I'm not sure why they're still talking about that.
Ron Paulonius is dead, Hamlet is getting sent to England, and Rey and Mikey put out a call for Enya to get involved, as they discuss what would conventionally be considered Acts 4.1-4.5 of Hamlet. This episode, really, is just for Enya. If you're not Enya, you probably wouldn't be interested.
More curtains. Really, Rey and Mikey just can't stop talking about the curtains, as they finish out Act 3 of Hamlet and witness ultimate the fate of Ron Paulonius.
