Seriously, awesome, awesome episode. The dice master was a brilliant.
I have theory about how they could survive. When Shanks was sort of processed after the cannibalism he mentioned that they'd been though several situations that would have killed any normal person. I think at one point or another they unlocked God mode...they just haven't realized yet.
When they died it was totally weird I did not see that coming. What was the point of that?
Anyway great acting and effects, really nice episode, although I still think the death part was pointless .now they have to spend an episode in which they will come back to life
