Rage party. It's kicking. The same people who are always at Babylon on a Friday night are here again, but this time it's all for Rage. People dance holding comic books over their heads. Did they pay for those, or were they free? Why would you dance holding a comic book over your head, anyway? Vic hands Debbie and Jennifer a Ragetini and a Zepherpolitan. Mel, Lindz, and Daphne are the only other women allowed in Babylon tonight. Everybody talks about how great Brian is to throw this party. It's the same party they always have here, but with a giant cut-out of Brian and masks for everybody to wear. Em tries to get Ted to joke with him, but now Ted has to be obvious in the complete opposite direction, so he mumbles and leaves like a total drama queen. Daphne calls Justin a star. Justin's not wearing a mask. Debbie and Jennifer both say the word "fuck," so we know that Jennifer's character has done a complete arc this season. Tuck that storyline away.
I don't know what to tell you guys. It appears that the entire budget of this season has gone into two things. One was that tiny animated Rage thing a few episodes ago, where Rage flew over Gayopolis. The other is this: a small stage play re-enacting the story of the comic book, which we fucking know by heart now because we were there for Justin's bashing, we were there when Michael thought of the idea, and we were there for every excruciating moment when they drew this frame by frame. Now, for some reason, we're subjected to the story yet again, when we already know it. This time it's "acted" out by Brian, Justin, and Michael lookalikes on a giant stage with that same announcer with the scary eyes. Do I have to recap it? Because I feel like I've been recapping this same bashing story for about a year. Oh, because I pretty much have. Let's all move on together, shall we? They all act like they haven't seen a giant stage in the room this entire time with giant set pieces that say "Gayopolis." Why couldn't Justin get some kind of flashback having to watch the fake Justin get bashed on stage? And will anyone buy the comic now that they know the entire story? And how does having men think each other queer and then beat each other to death do any justice for gay people? That's not advancement at all, is it? I do like the cut to Zephyr as he has to watch J.T. and Rage kiss passionately.
