I’m confused as to why it’s playing all the episodes? Shouldn’t it just place the latest in the RSS feed?

But I love that you did this!!!!

Hi Joe, unfortunately this is the way that Amazon has designed the flash briefing to work in that it plays the last 5 items in the specified RSS feed. We think we have found a way around it and are testing currently.. Give us a few more days and we should be in a happy single last episode place. Cheers, Chris..
