This week on The Ev3nt, Sean and Vicky make the mistake of getting on a plane, Mr P gets worse, Darth P assumes power, Weasel has a blowout, MFB turns into a good guy again, Simon doesn’t die (yet, at least), and Leila yet again stands by and lets everyone do the work for her.
The episode kicks off with a little side-by-side storytelling. Mr P is being rushed into surgery to deal with increased pressure in his head, and Darth Hatter is being sworn in.
That’s Mr Darth P, to you…
Mr P starts to flatline, so the doctors bust out the crash cart and shock some life back into him. Unfortunately, though, just as Sophia predicted last week, Mr P has lapsed into a coma.
Simon is still tied down on the bed, and is being forced to watch the news. Ouch. Luckily, since this show is being aired on NBC, he’s not being forced to watch something worse than MSNBC, like The O’Reilly Factor…
That Carlos guy from a month or so back comes in and calls Simon a traitor, etc., and slaps a sammich and a bottle of water down on the end of the bed and starts to leave, but Simon starts asking him about what’s going on with Mr P. Simon calls him a sheep, which apparently is a really bad insult in The Others’ homeworld, but really just makes me think of YouTube comments. Carlos attempts to beat Simon up, and since Simon is tied to the bed, it should be easy, but it turns out to not be easy at all. Simon kicks him, and then when Carlos is trying to choke a bitch, Simon screws that up by Hulking his way out of his restraints and punching Carlos in the mouth. But, since bad guys don’t really fight fair…
So, that was a gun in your pocket…
He tells Simon that Sophia is now calling the shots from the White House, which surprises Simon. Turns out the “P” in “Darth P” stands for “Puppet”. Or maybe “Pawn”. Or perhaps “Patsy”. The possibilities are endless. Or maybe those are the only three. Who knows…
At the White House, Darth P addresses his cabinet, and tells them how very sad he is about what happened to Mr P, and then tells them that a drastic change in strategy is in order. By “change in strategy,” he means “hand in your balls and run away like a kicked dog…” Weasel does not like this new strategy, and lets Darth P know it. Darth P tells him tough shit, you’ll do what I say, and that’s that.
Weasel and Chief of Staff Shatmypants talk about how sickening it is that Darth P is now the new P, and Shatmypants reminds Weasel that he has to keep his mouth shut about the whole murder thing until he has definitive proof. Weasel tells him about the conspicuous stain on his shirtsleeve, and that he sent it to the lab for analysis. Shatmypants reminds him that Darth P is still the P for the time being, so to keep his head down.
Carlos seems to be a bit butt-hurt after Simon beat him up…
Again with the bandages…for a super-advanced civilization, they sure are fail at medicine.
Carlos says that he’s headed back to Simon’s room, but wanted to tell Sophia what Simon did at first. Because he’s a crybaby tattletale…
Aaron, the Other in charge of the WMD virus, calls Sophia and tells her that the package is in good hands, but they had a problem…a little of it leaked and kinda accidentally killed all the humans they’d hired to work on it. So, at least that kind of fixes my annoyance from last week…now that we know even the doctor was a human, so maybe the disease doesn’t affect the Others after all.
After all the talk about the package, we cut to the airport, and this random guy carrying a metal briefcase on to an airplane. And then, we notice that it’s just a segue to bring in Sean and Vicky.
As always, he’s running…like the wind…
He runs up to the counter and asks if an “Alex” has boarded flight 38, which she’s clearly not allowed to divulge. Sean asks if he can buy a seat. Vicky tells him he’s being a dumbshit, but Sean doesn’t listen, as always and buys a ticket, so Vicky does too. I see what’s going on here.
So Sean and Vicky run through the airport and only just catch their flight, and the camera again shows the guy with the metal briefcase. After the commercial, Vicky is checkin out the flight attendant.
How YOU doin’?
It turns out Vicky is only hanging around up there because once the flight attendant leaves to deliver drinks, the flight manifest is just left unattended. So Vicky glances over the manifest, and can’t find an “Alex”, so she just takes the whole thing, confident that the flight attendant won’t remember her as the lady that was hanging around where the flight manifest used to be…
When she gets back to her seat, Sean points out the guy with the metal briefcase as being rather suspicious. Vicky asks if he thinks the lungs are in the briefcase, and Sean says he thinks so, otherwise why would the guy bring it to the bathroom with him. My thought? Fleshlight.
At the hospital, Weasel stops in to check on Mr P, who is still not doing so well. He slips up and says something that makes Mrs P think that maybe he suspects foul play was involved. He refuses to say anything further on the matter, and that she shouldn’t be blaming herself.
Dr Lu and Sophia are having a brief concersation about Mr P, and how he’ll be dead in the next day or so. Just then MFB comes in, and Sophia sends to good doctor out of the room. She tells MFB about Simon, and orders him to take care of it. She tells him she’s certain that he’ll never come around to the mass genocide thing she’s all about now. MFB says that he’ll take care of it.
Back on the plane, Vicky just straight up dumps her drink on the guy with the briefcase. It’s very obviously not an accident, and the guy gets pretty pissed about it. I’m not sure I’d be so pissed if a super hot chick “accidentally” dumped her drink on me, but this guy really gets angry. He grabs his briefcase and runs to the bathroom. Sean and Vicky follow, and Sean jumps him and Vicky gets the briefcase. Vicky opens it up and…
SAMSONITE!!!! I was WAY off!!!!
So Sean and Vicky just pack the briefcase back and give it back to the guy and tell the male flight attendant that everything is cool. They head back to their seats, and know they’re fucked because they have no idea who the courier is. Sean talks Vicky into contacting a friend at Homeland Security to let them know about the WMD Virus.
Sean and Vicky have a little conversation about why Vicky is helping. Sean says he know she’s doing all of this because of him, but he doesn’t understand why, because of how she is. Vicky makes him explain what he means by “these jeans are maybe not the best look for you”, and things go badly. Suddenly, this almost Cialis moment because a 1800-Flowers moment, because Vicky is really hurt that Sean doesn’t think she has morals or a conscience or whatever.
Back at the Community, MFB grabs his handgun from the top pantry shelf, and as he’s heading out to take care of Simon, Leila stops him. She reminds him of something he said when she was a kid about how you have to stand up for those weaker, and that she doesn’t see that MFB anymore.
Back at the White House, a scientist shows up and tells Weasel that they’ve identified a foreign compound in the coffee stain on his shirt. Unfortunately, they don’t know what the synthetic bio-catalyst, and that it’s something that we don’t even have the science to make.
Weasel confronts Darth P. He tells him that this unknown compound clearly came from Sophia’s people, and that once he figured that out, it’s a no-brainer that Darth P (is for Puppet) was involved. He tells him that he knows Darth P couldn’t have thought this up on his own. Darth P asks Weasel “what are you trying to say?”
You are so dumb….you are really dumb…for real…
Weasel calls him both a “pawn” and a “puppet.” Darth P freaks out and starts yelling at Weasel about insubordination and stuff, and after quite a heated argument, Weasel begs Darth P to stop collaborating with Sophia, and Darth P tells Weasel that it’s time he resigns.
Back on the plane, Sean and Vicky are ignoring each other after their little lover’s quarrel. Suddenly Sean looks out the window and there’s an airplane!
It’s like deja vu, all over again…
Everyone else on the plane notices the fighter jets out the windows as well, and the crew tells everyone not to panic, and that they’re only being rerouted as a precautionary measure. Vicky points out that if the guy is gonna make his move, now’s the time, and just then a guy gets up and walks very intently towards the front of the plane. The male flight attendant tells him to sit down, and he says….
that his wife and him had separate seats, but given the circumstances he wants to sit by her. Oh, writers…so clever.
Aaron calls Sophia to tell her about the military escort, and she isn’t so happy. He suggests that they deploy the virus, but Sophia points out that the passengers would all be too dead by the time the plane lands, so it’d just waste everything.
Back at the White House, Darth Puppet is talking with Shatmypants about Weasel’s resignation, and wants to make sure that Shatmypants isn’t in the know with regards to this whole collaboration with Sophia thing.
Note the evil guy shadows…
He makes sure to tell Shatmypants that he can come to him with any concerns. Just then, Sophia calls and tells him about the military escort. She tells him that he needs to call it off, and he tells her that he wants to understand the situation. She tells him to just do it, and she reminds him that they can level the city in no time if he doesn’t call off the jets, and that she’ll expose him.
Back aboard the plane, our heroes notice that the fighter jet escort is pulling out faster than a senior on prom night, and they can’t believe their eyes/ears. Vickie knows that Sophia is behind this, and must have an inside connection.
Once they get off the plane, for some reason Sean and Vicky are forced to go through security…which is weird. As they’re waiting in line, Sean hears the male flight attendant call one of the other flight attendants “Alexandra,” and so now Sean and Vicky have their target! But they get yelled at when they try to skip the security line.
Remove your finger from my face, sir, or I may bite it off.
Back at the White House, Darth P can’t believe what he’s done, and is staring forlornly out the window. His secretary comes in to tell him that Weasel has been escorted from the premises.
Back at the Community, MFB heads into Simon’s room. Carlos seems surprised to see him, but MFB tells him that he’s here to off Simon, and for him to wait outside. Simon tells MFB that he’ll have to live with what he’s about to do, and MFB shrugs him off and takes aim, and fires! NO!!!
But wait! Simon isn’t dead! MFB missed on purpose! He opens the door for Carlos and asks for a hand with the body, but then Simon comes out of the shadows knocks him the hell out. MFB tells Simon to get Leila, and that he’s gonna go try to find out what was used to poison Mr P.
Back at the airport, Sean and Vicky are finally outside, and they see the flight attendant downstairs! They run after her, and follow her into a parking garage. As they’re following, a car approaches from the front, and then swerves directly at Sean and Vicky! Sean tackles Alex, but the driver of the car gets out and starts beating on him. The driver pulls out a gun, but Vicky kicks it away, but then he pulls out another gun and holds Sean as a human shield, and tells Vicky to put the gun down or Sean eats a lead sandwich.
Sean keeps telling her just to take the shot, that she can’t let the case get away, but Vicky can’t do it!! She can’t let anything happen to her Seanybear! She puts the gun down, and the bad guys get away with the virus! Sean yells at her for not taking the shot, and she just stands there looking wounded until Sean points out that they need to follow the bad guys, so Vicky hotwires a car.
Back at the Community, the bald head guard finds Carlos bound and gagged, and they know something has gone horribly wrong. The guard answers his phone and tells whoever called that MFB and Simon are gone, and to lock down the perimeter.
Simon and Leila arrive at a clearing where they’re supposed to meet MFB. Simon notices the guys with lights and guns moving closer, and points out that they can’t wait much longer. Just then MFB comes up, and he and Leila share a hug that lasts WAY too long considering the circumstances. MFB tells them the perimeter fence is about 50 yards away, and they run for it. The guards all open fire, so MFB stands behind to slow them down, but he gets shot!! He tells Simon and Leila to go on with out him, but Leila won’t!!!! MFB gives Simon a vial of presumably the antidote for whatever Mr P is suffering from, and Simon jumps the fence and escapes while Leila waits behind to be captured, and MFB dies in her arms!!! When she’s captured, she tells Sophia that she is the one responsible for MFB’s death
Vengeance Barbie. Now with Shadows…
