  1. can i just say i am extremely excited about the puzzle content happening here

    as for this one, i’m not sure 5:21 is a time to be proud of OR what it says that ‘therapy’ was the last word i found, but i had fun/perhaps the real word search is the portmanteaus we made along the way/thanks for the memories etc etc

  2. Bettina was the last word I found which feels fitting. And NOT because they’re end(ofthe)game.

    • 04:23!!! My last word was topoff…hope we actually get to witness a few quality topoff this season with GINI (my faves).

  3. 5:31! Cannot stress enough how much this puzzle content is making my week, thank you & congrats to all involved!!!

  4. I love puzzles! If autostraddle published a book of crosswords and word searches I would buy that in a second

  5. I am notoriously slow / terrible at word searches, so the fact that I finished this in 13 minutes but without any hints is an accomplishment.

  6. This was fun! When you said you were going to do puzzles I couldn’t quite picture how it would work, but this is really user-friendly!

  7. 39 seconds. Wish I could be that quick on the crosswords 🙂 Love love love all of the new puzzles!

  8. Ha! As long as we’re reading into this, the fact that I found therapy easy peasy but struggled with poker and karaoke…hmmm

    Also, agree with all who are loving this content. Would buy puzzle book in an instant.

  9. 8 minutes, which I was proud of until I saw people at nearly half my time. Oh well! But this puzzle was the self-soothing my squirrel brain needed tonight, so I’ll take it.

  10. I’ve never watched the show, and at one point I wondered if therapy was not actually *on* the board :D

  11. I remember at some point there was an announcement that Laurel Holloman wasn’t returning to Gen Q and I was so relieved.

    Then she reappeared and I could feel what was going to happen. It’s like when my knee hurts before it’s going to rain.

    I know what’s coming and like any other force of nature I cannot stop it.
