Earl feels bad, like this is his fault for getting Joy to go on the show. Randy says, "It's totally your fault!" Joy agrees with Randy, and then Randy agrees with her, saying, "Yeah, dummy!" When everyone looks surprised, Randy explains that since Joy won't be Joy anymore, he was going to give it a try, but it's not for him. Earl promises to make this up to Joy. Just then, Darnell comes out with the boys, both wearing bicycle helmets. When Joy asks why, Darnell explains that pickups can be a little rough. He asks Joy to please hustle, but she's not hurrying for the government. They can make her leave, but they can't rush her. She's blabbing about how she calls the shots when the lights go completely out. There's some bangs and a car pulling away.
When it's light again, Randy and Earl are laying next to each other in the trailer, which is completely draped with plastic. Each of them has a syringe hanging out of his neck, which they point out to each other through screams and wild hand gestures. They keep screaming as they run outside the trailer. Earl says, "They're gone!" Randy's sad because there are so many things he never got to say to them, like ... yeah, he pretty much had that part covered, but he does miss them. Earl says he can't just let someone take his ex-wife, the guy she cheated on him with and his two "igellitimate" kids. He tells Randy they have to find them. Randy looks at his syringe and says, "There's still a little liquid in mine. I wonder what it tastes like." Earl says, "Randy, no!" But too late, as Randy's already squirted the last of it in his mouth. He falls flat on his face, and ... To Be Continued. Best episode in a long, long time. I can't wait to see how this all plays out, and they bring Darnell and Joy back. Because you know they must bring them back.
