Last week’s episode was the height of weirdness, with a little “ewww, gross” thrown in for good measure.
Our illustrious crew, minus Cliff who was making the trek home after crashing back from space, decides not to head the tons of warnings on a box delivered to the manner and discovers inside the blank canvas where Mr. Nobody and Beard Hunter used to be trapped - except for a ton of pink dots all over the canvas.
Turns out the canvas was infected with scants - pink humanoid pests that place bad ideas into your brain and push ‘idiot’ out of your ears (only visible to scants) – the scants use the ‘idiot’ to feed the queen which gives her extraordinary powers and only those with butthole masks can breathe without the scants going into your head – eventually the bad ideas will compound and lead to the death of the infected.
And boy, did the bad ideas abound!
Now that our crew is back to their normal, weird selves what’s going to happen next? And what was that cryptic conversation between the Chief and Willoughby all about in the Yukon? What did Candlemaker mean?
Gotta watch to find out!
