'Course, if you were to do anything that monumental, you'd
spike right smack in the middle of your three-part story.

One of the things about these three episodes that's again worth
stressing is that they're really one story, linked carefully. Each of
the three begins *one frame* after the other. After they've aired, if
you sit down with a VCR and edit them together, you'll find that they
flow absolutely SEAMLESSLY from one to the other. So PoNR is at the
dead center of the piece that propels you toward the last third, like
the second act in a three-act play (which was my structure for this).

That may help.
