Credits Correction: The end credits state that Drew Tillman is playing the Revised Ranger from WotC's Unearthed Arcana.  This is incorrect.  He is playing the Consensus Ranger by ZIPPERONDISNEY on Reddit.

Leaving the fate of Rictavio in the hands of...well, Josh really...the party continues onward back towards Vallaki. Kent is slaphappy, Ferguson is cryptic as always, and Ven decides to do some light reading.
