Are you still stuck with the puzzle? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections are:
- DECLINE – Ebb, Fade, Flag, Wane
- ABSOLUTE – Pure, Sheer, Total, Utter
- EXPRESS – Air, Speak, State, Voice

I don’t know who wrote the NYT Connections for today, but I disagree that Purple was supposed to be the hardest. It’s either that or maybe I just love superheroes too much and solved the Purple category with ease. While I did spend a few minutes around the Blue category, I eventually got it after connecting Air and Speak together.
The sheer simplicity of Green hit me after I realized how it goes well with Utter and had that in the bag. With only four words left for the Yellow, I connected them all together and got the category, and finally the NYT Connections answer for December 8.
