A Read of the Dark Tower: Constant Reader Tackles The Wind Through the Keyhole: “The Skin-Man (Part 2)” and “Storm’s Over”

Stephen King The Wind Through the KeyholeOnce upon a time, a ka-tet of readers found themselves at tor.com on a long quest to reach Stephen King’s Dark Tower. During the journey, the author (or perhaps it was simply ka) tried to throw our hardy band of pilgrims into confusion by telling a new story. Undeterred, their path followed the Beam until the end, and only now, when we know what is at the clearing at the end of the path, do we return to Mid-World once again, to join our old friends for The Wind Through the Keyhole (Dark Tower 4.5, if it do ya). Welcome. There be spoilers ahead.

When we last left our story, Tim had restored his mother’s sight with Maerlyn’s magic elixir, and Nell had killed Big Kells in order to save her son.
