Okay I get that the point is that it was good to see a spider living in its natural habitat for so long, but going out by wasp attack is like finding out a woman who lived to be 200 years old was stabbed to death. Like, at some point it becomes more about seeing how long it can last than preserving RNG.

Unsurprisingly, it turns out there were more knock-on effects during that period, including possibly a massive drop in fertility:
