  1. SPOILER ALERT – Themed clue list below:
    The “five shorter answers”, in A, E, I, O, U order are:
    16A, 4D, 8A, 27A, 18A.

    The respective “escorting two other answers” (in PRE and then POST order) are:
    18D, 25D.
    12A, 22D.
    1D, 13D.
    19A, 24A.
    5D, 3D.

    Really is a very clever crossword.
