The Drink
2 oz vodka
2 oz Chambord
1 tsp Bacardi 151
Orange Juice

Simple version: Screwdriver

Fill a pint glass with ice. Add vodka and OJ. Stir. Add Chambord and a splash of grenadine. Float Bacardi on top and light. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE SURE THE FIRE IS OUT BEFORE YOU DRINK. Also make sure the glass isn't going to send your lips to the burn unit.

The drinking game
Drink every time there is an explosion. You will be drinking a lot, sorry.

The episode
Don't wanna spoil anything here but SHEPARD DIES. The Normandy is attacked by some strange ship we can't identify and we end up getting spaced because Joker is an idiot who thinks he can pilot a pile of flaming wreckage. The earliest promo materials for the game showed Shep dying and caused a lot of hollering. We wake up some time later to a strange voice telling us to get our ass in gear because of course shit is going down.

After fighting our way through a bazillion robits (not the Geth) we meet the galaxy's blandest squadmate and find out we've been resurrected by Cerberus. Y'know, the guys from the first game who killed an admiral, experimented with husks and Rachni and got our squad killed on Akuze. Apparently they were so impressed with our badassery that they spent several billion space bucks to bring us back from the dead. The head of Cerberus, The Illusive Man (TIM to his friends) wants us to help him out with something. We gotta make it to the shuttle to get the hell off the station.
