No disrespect meant to Eric, but I'm not buying that.

The Firehouse doesn't look like it was recently vacated, it looks like it hasn't been used in in years.
It could have been bought by Starbucks, but maybe not converted into one. All in all, I wish they just removed that joke and explain it was structurally unsound and needed big money to fix.

I don't know if it was ever meant as a joke, but I thought it worked well as a misdirection... I was fooled and felt a pang of disappointment at the thought they'd lost the Firehouse... Until I saw those familiar apparatus bay doors and white/green tilework appear... And then I was grinning like an idiot. :)

I know I'm probably applying too much real world logic to it (it's a family bad habit :P), but it really having been turned into a Starbucks just doesn't work for me... But I've said my piece. :)

I guess if they'd had more time to work with (and we know it was a late-in-the-day addition to Afterlife, based on the behind-the-scenes photos showing the crew wearing face masks) that they would've added some set dressing like cafe tables and signage to signify what'd happened to the place.

I guess with some reshoots and reworking the script at additional times, they forgot to go over it with a fine tooth comb.

I mean this is RAY, did you not see how much he fell in love with the firehouse? He's still in NY right? Why would he believe someone saying it, and not seeing it for himself. Maybe too much heartbreak. That's what I'm going with right now, rather than a gap in continuity.

Someone should have really given this a good going-over with.

Here's ANOTHER burning question:

At the end Trevor races to the deceased remains of the terror dog and RIPS OFF THE HEAD of one of them. How did they know they did that? What if it didn't crumble? How did they know the person was still inside.

He drove Phoebe and Podcast close to the mountain temple so he would have seen them trap Zuul and Callie being released. He was there to see Lucky being turned into a Terror Dog. He ran to the husks and I assume he saw Vinz's husk move or heard Gary calling for help since he was so up close to it.

Pretty sure they would've made that decision before they'd signed the paperwork, you don't buy a house without checking the pipes and electrics are all sound. :)

I thought the Starbucks line was just a joke. Like Ray was kidding around with Podcast cause that’s like a running joke in general. That everything gets turned into a Starbucks nowadays.

As for Egon and what happened with the team I find it hard to accept. Especially Ray not believing Egon cause he’s so into the supernatural. He owns a bookstore on it. This is really my only issue.

I wish it was done a little differently. Like maybe Egon was threatened by a ghost or something and felt he had to do it alone so he mysteriously left. It would go along with becoming reclusive.

So far I’ve only seen it once in theaters but it leaves Ray in a bad light imo.

Well it’s not just that. Ray not trusting his judgment and then apparently not calling or going over to check things out.

I can see Peter and Winston having doubts or moving on to other things with the business struggling but it’s very out of character for Ray imo.

Egon became a thief, robbing the Ghostbusters and Ray stopped believing in supernatural threats.

Two very believable concepts if you know anything about Ghostbusters at all right?

Like the 2 very first things you would think of, to base the story of your entire Ghostbusters movie on.

Right?
