And on that note, cue the looting! A bunch of kids are loading up in the candy store with as much as they can carry. Leila even cleans the now-useless buffalo nickels out of the till. Even as Olivia loads up, she tells us over the racket that since there are no rules, they might as well "raid all the stores for all they're worth, man!" One of the few unidentified randoms left on this show rants to Taylor and us about how they've been acting like responsible pioneers for 38 days, and they need to be kids. Hence the town-wide sugar high. "We've all decided to go mad!" Olivia tells us, hauling a double armload of loot back to her bunk. Taylor gets some sodas out of the Saloon, announcing, "I'm STEALING! Have a nice day." I think that's the kindest thing she's ever said. Pharaoh even dumps a huge jar of yellow jawbreakers on the floor of the candy store for no reason. But despite the disorder, not everyone's in on it. DK bemoans all the looting. As does Zach, who wanders the chaotic streets like the Omega Man and interviews, "Stealing is wrong. You steal, everyone will steal. If other people steal, there is no order. Society breaks down." Nice of Zach to be looking out for the blind viewers.
But apparently this insanity goes on all day, because when the Council enters the dry goods store to assess the damage, they find it totally cleaned out. Except not clean. As Zach sweeps drifts of Skittles from the floor, he rants about how they were doing just fine for so long, and now it's all crumbling. He generalizes about the kind of people who live in Bonanza City. I'm thinking this is more the responsibility of the people who run Bonanza City, and I mean to be quite clear that that's an entirely different group of people. DK agrees with Zach (though not enough to get up and help sweep) and says they'll have a meeting about it after dinner. That whole scene, I totally forgot that Zach wasn't on the Council anymore. That might be because his replacement, Blaine, was seen carrying off a couple dozen bottles of soda.
Dinner has gone back to the first-night style of cuisine, as Sophia and a no doubt sharply reduced kitchen crew were apparently able to throw together some pasta. She apologizes, but calls it poetic. After the meal, the Council takes the stage and Michael tells them that they're going to clean up the town tomorrow. DK adds that they don't need the Journal or the job board to rebuild the town. Well, seriously. Everyone cheers and leaves in a good mood. Guylan interviews that everyone felt bad after "the town riot," but it was a learning experience. Yes, we saw Guylan doing some "learning" in the dry goods store earlier. Sophia, with what is either a bruise or a smudge over her eye, exhaustedly tells us in her bunk that she hopes tomorrow is better. She was probably too busy cooking all day to do any looting of her own. Lights out.
