If years were seasons, this December
Would be the December of our December
“This is the entire series’ master story circle. The whole thing. If you don’t know what that is, read this article.
Basically this is the master arc of the entire series.
You’ll notice something else: as per Dan Harmon’s story structure, it’s broken into quadrants. These quadrants correspond to story and emotional landmarks that stories should hit at certain points. They also correspond to seasons of the show. Each of the pictures in quadrant 1 (upper right) are from season 1, quadrant 2 from season 2, and so on. There’s only 4 quadrants. So I guess if we make it to season 4, that might be all we get.
Also: each of the small circles after the highlighted one (tonight’s episode) is grayed out with static, representing the uncertainty of the show’s future."
The year has been cold and unforgiving like Winter in December. Therefore, the current month of December is a very meta “December inside a December”, and is thus doubly in need of some holiday cheer.
Also, the line is similar to(and probably derived from) the opening line of Richard the Third’s soliloquy in Shakespeare’s eponymous play, in which he says “Now is the winter of our discontent.”
