This chapter begins with a discussion of the two-dimensionalist reimagining of Kripke, first convincingly elaborated in Davies and Humberstone's ‘Two Notions of Necessity’. The rigidifier claims to explain the modal, epistemic, and conceptual phenomena just as well as Kripke but with a lot less fuss and bother. It is argued that the rigidifier's explanation is oftentimes worse than Kripke's, and worse in ways plausibly blameable on the treatment of water-judgments as of their nature made by way of descriptive judgments.

Keywords:   Kripke, Davis, Humberstone, rigidifier
