Cappie: "You tried to kill me, and now you want to offer me a job?"
Clark: "And a beer."
Cappie: "Fuck you."
But he takes the beer, and I guess that's how the sausage gets made too.
In the editing bay, Lincoln is freaking out about how his dad ordered Cappie's death, and then all of a sudden he's just addressing them from the screen. Why? Who cares, doesn't matter. This is how the show works. I mean, what he has to say doesn't matter at all, every sentence reverses and negates itself -- "I know you want to know why I abandoned you, but abandoning you is something I have to do" -- and then he says he feels bad about sacrificing Cappie.
But not that bad, I guess because then he goes off on another trippy rant about how this journey is testing his tethers and boundaries and reality and whatever. He apologizes and cries for a while for leaving them behind, but considering he wanted these tapes destroyed before they even got there, I'm not sure why that's particularly touching anyway, or why he even taped that. But whatever, they hug and the music says "YOU ARE FEELING FEELINGS" so I guess if you're an idiot that's what you do. Feel some feelings, about moms or dads. Or scapegoats. Maybe vines.
Next week: Zombies! I mean it this time, I think.
