They listen to the track. Jeff loves it; honestly, Rich sounds okay, all right? Chris worries about the show, which is tomorrow. He doesn't want to be booed in his hometown, although he most assuredly will be. Katie asks how they're doing, how they feel about the performance, and there's kind of an apocalypse glint in her eye. Bryan wonders what it will be like, then whines some more that it's scary. Rich says the timelines are impossible, which they are, but you need to quit giving us true facts from the mouth of the unreliable turnip. It doesn't make him look smarter, it makes what he's saying seem less true. Katie's like "Oooookay, let's go." Rich interviews that he's worried about knowing the lyrics, and also hearing himself over the boos. I'm worried that we're going to filler this episode out yet again and they won't even have this performance -- which they started talking about five minutes into the first episode -- for another week. You think postponing it again is going to make us more sympathetic? Um, no. That would require these boys be likeable in some fashion.
Jeff complains about the halftime show, causing a domino effect of complaining and whining and bitching; Jeff wants to shock your brain by going on the record about how he doesn't want to do it. Jeffy doesn't want to do something. Fabulous and surprising. Chris immediately takes on this idea like it's his own and tries to rabble-rouse everybody into being snotty with Katie. When she shows up, she just about laughs in their faces. Like you're seriously going to bring this up less than 24 hours before the awful idea is set to happen. Jeff points out once again that this is all a recipe for failure. Katie asks if they can honestly go on living if they cancel this late; Chris gets snotty with her about it in some vague fashion. Rich says he's just worried about morale, if it turns out they suck. But that's not morale, if the thing is true. Like, "If our lack of attention and effort causes us to fail, I'm afraid we'll look like losers to ourselves, and if there's anything we're invested in avoiding, it's that." I'm glad Heaven's Gate didn't get hold of stupid old Rich. He's a Kool-Aid drinker for sure.
