Ed sees Carol in the alley and says that the judge has now been derandomized. They both agree that sometimes lives are changed by random events that are totally out of their control. Yet another clue from the writers about the fate of the show: if the show is cancelled because of a lack of viewership, that's out of their control. Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but after viewing one of the weaker episodes of the show in a while, it seems to me like everyone on the show is already waving the white flag and surrendering to the network. Anyway, Carol says she needs to go pick up Jackass at the airport. Ed asks how his interview went, and Carol says it's between him and another guy right now. Ed's impressed, and says then it's a 50-50 chance that Jackass may be leaving the show. Carol agrees that the odds are exactly that. She walks away. Ed pulls out a coin, flips it, and then looks at the result. His face then kind of falls, and he looks slightly depressed, meaning that his coin toss says that Jackass is here to stay. And the show fades to black.
Boring. Boring, boring, boring. Once again: no plot advancements except to get us prepared for the possible (probable) departure of the Jackass. A rehashed plot line concerning somebody going off the deep end after receiving tragic news affecting his life. Even the clown plotline fell embarrassingly flat. The only amusing portion of the show was Mike's commercial, which ate up about twenty seconds of screen time. The writers seem to be dropping clues as to the possible cancellation of the show with lines like, "Who gives a crap anymore?" and "lives are changed by random events that are out of their control." Let's see if the show can rebound next week with the arrival of Ed's brother. (I wouldn't bet on it.)
