Great idea, you did a nice setup! I was stuck on easternmost, probably the farthest I ve gotten in this series! I kept on thinking 'East Monster'

This is by far the one I did best on. I only missed sternmost, while the others I struggled with just getting 50%. These are the best puzzles on the site.

Is anyone else not seeing the initial "E" displayed in the top cell? Might just be a glitch for me

The E was visible only in dark mode. I appreciate you pointing it out, and I've fixed it.
