The best episode of Gravity Falls to date
10 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was by far the best episode of Gravity Falls so far. It is all about Stan and whether you should trust him or not, and while I normally don't write reviews like this, I thought it was completely necessary for this episode.

There are so many things that happen, and it's clear that nothing will ever be the same in the town of Gravity Falls. If you watch the episode after this one without watching this, you will have no idea what exactly happened. That's how big this is.

Without giving too much away, there are HUGE secrets revealed in this episode, especially in the last minute. Grab some food, sit down, and enjoy the most shocking and exhilarating Gravity Falls episode ever.
