RG2015.4 Hardest/Harder - Solution
RG2015.4 Easier/Easiest - Solution
Apologies for the delayed post...been very busy around here.
B1 was the seed here. It was one of those unique situations where I came up with the clue and entry almost at the same time. Though I knew I was going to clue it as [High heat?], I debated having the answer in the singular or the plural. I ended up going with the latter, and I'm glad I did.
I was also happy to debut E2. For the longest time I had KENNEDYCURSE in that spot; though I didn't love the crossing bloom it created (PEENED), plus KENNEDYCURSE is a tough phrase to clue (not to mention the tragic implications in the entry). Plus once I landed on the final E2 entry, it enabled using the equally fresh entry at E1.
New puzzle next Tuesday!
