Wow I totally forgot about this episode until it had this new post in this thread today.
I actually had to look up what happened to remember, that's how forgettable it was.
It was so bad, none of the Ash gags were funny, and we didn't learn anything about Sophocles unlike the other classmates' intro episodes
Except it hints at insecurities. Did you not notice how he was initially hesitant to reveal the ice cream until Ash becomes enthusiastic about it?
Not to mention being a programmer and afraid of the dark. Sure it wasn't as good as Lana or Kiawe episodes but we did learn some stuff.
