Episodes are how various characters embark on a longer running plot then normal in a confined place where their posts won't be lost among posts of other characters going about their business. This is so the action can keep going instead of people losing track of what is happening.
Generally speaking there are two kinds of Episodes. There are Filler Episodes and Plot Episodes.
- Filler episodes are regular missions, usually with throw-away villains or characters, the give people chances to have their characters doing things. Get out there and interact with the other characters of the episode, usually for a chance to get to throw down with villains who won't always get away. Sometimes they are out-of-continuity meaning whoever is in them can be doing stuff in the regular threads at the same time, essentially the episode is out of the time line. Sometimes they are even out of canon, depending on what takes place in them (a Hot Spring episode might very well be non-canon or maybe it would be canon).
- Plot episodes are a different matter entirely, and generally serious business. They'll most often be seen when an important event in a long-running plot arc comes around, one that is likely to last for some time or contain game-shaking events. Sometimes they aren't a finale, but are instead a beginning…
