A challenging Friday crossword (but easier than last week's!). There were a few novel entries in today's grid, including 17A, Hybrid citrus fruit native to China, MEYERLEMON, the very 21st century 3D, "G2G", TTYL, and 35D, Marshal under Napoleon, NEY. Jean leveraged her familiarity with 12D, ________ the 25-Down, founder of the kingdom of Hawaii, KAMEHAMEHA, to get a good leg up in the top right corner, whereas Mike leveraged his familiarity with computers and his unfamiliarity with gerunds to initially stray on 7D, Performing tasks according to encoding instructions, as a computer file, EXECUTABLE (not EXECUTING).
Both Jean & Mike, solving independently as always, ended up at the junction of 41A, Cry of relief, PHEW (not WHEW), and 41D, Jewelry creator Elsa who helped define the Tiffany brand, PERETTI (not WERETTI).
