Meanwhile, back at Trip's dorm room -- which Sara and Liam are surely getting tired of, despite how freakin' large it is -- Sara tells Liam they're looking for sources of CO2. "It comes from factories, cars and volcanos. It's not something we're going to find in a dorm room," Liam mopes. Liam has clearly never heard of the MIT pranks. Sara is busy wondering if someone pumped in gas via a vent, but Liam's too distracted by his newest discovery: "A sex journal! Names of girls, dates, and sexual activities." "Boys and their conquests," Sara sniffs. Frankly, I'm stunned that Trip was even literate enough to manage the details he had. Liam's reading through the entries. "I've never even heard of some of these," he marvels. Sara turns around and asks, "Really?" I have a feeling she's not averse to schooling the boy. And that...I have no idea how to feel about that. On the one hand: good for her for moving on from Gil. On the other: can't she find someone to date outside of work? When she invites Liam to help her move the bed, it kind of works on a number of levels. But the one we're most concerned about: there's a hole in the wall between Trip's room and Zach's, and it's just the right size for a gas-bearing pipe to be inserted. When they head over to Zach's room, there's a brief conversation about how he's a car buff, which somehow leads into the implication that surely, someone who's into mufflers would be able to drill a muffler-sized hole in the dorm room wall. Zach is all, "I didn't even know the hole was there!" He does not point out, "And it's kind of stupid for you guys to even imply that my interest in cars gave me the know-how to pump CO2 into Trip's room."
Meanwhile, in another plot, Catherine and Warrick have tracked down the owner of the helicopter as he lands the thing. What, the guy who figured out it was a helicopter wasn't allowed to put on his big-boy pants and go outside? Warrick says something that usually strikes fear into the hearts of the unwary -- "We've got information that puts you at a crime scene," but Morgan Wendel merely smiles and says, "You're here about Kevin." He says, "I'll tell you everything, but I want immunity." "We'll see," Catherine replies, whipping out her cell phone so she can call a D.A. and see about a deal. In another episode in a parallel universe.
One spiffy waiver of immunity later, we get the story in flashback: a blindfolded Kevin is told to jump out of the plane. He protests, "Without a parachute? That's my stunt? No way!" We pull back to see Catherine, the host Tucker, and some guy in a suit who I assume is a lawyer watching this flashback on tape. Tucker saying, "Dude! The name of this show is Going All The Way! You signed a contract! Now do it!" Kevin reasonably protests, "This isn't going all the way! It's suicide!" Now it's Nicky's turn to look disapproving. And then on the tape, Tucker says, "You've already eaten raw meat" -- when? A few months ago? Because that tapeworm was pretty mature. I'm just saying -- "you stuck your face in a beehive. You don't go all the way, you don't get nothing!" Tucker manages to look ashamed of himself. I hope. Especially since we've gotten to the point in the tape where Tucker's pushed him toward the hatch of the copter, Kevin's peed himself in fear, and Tucker's humane response is to snicker, "Get this! Get his crotch! Our first contestant peed his pants! RE! AL! I! TY! You can't fake this!" And then he pushes a screaming Kevin out of the plane. We then get to the gotcha twist: the plane was only four feet up, so it was all an elaborate joke. And once Tucker realizes that Kevin's not moving, it's time to turn off the camera so the cover-up's not recorded too.
