S1E9 - Episode 9: Compromise

The glamour of Glasshouse is only rivaled by one place in the Metropolis--the Panel district. Its beauty is enforced by the Correctors who eliminate anyone suspicious, especially on the day of the Upgrading ceremony. Zero Zero has a tight deadline to deliver prototypes back to their owners, without getting hit by lasers, or tire spikes, or bombs... Featuring an intense pep talk, the mute function on a bot, and a whole host of new voices.

Special thanks to Glory Duda from Ibby, Brad from Haunted Hotel of Horror/Sector 0/Novitero, and Ju Spicer from Five Years for lending their voices to side characters in this episode!

Trigger warnings: Loud noises, yelling and screaming, bombs, lasers, violence, deception, threats. High pitched ringing at 8:27.
