Description

"I just want to apologize in advance. I couldn’t find a guest for this episode and, frankly, I’m feeling pretty homesick."

Summary

One of the more bizarre episodes. It begins like any other, with Arnie introducing Usidore and Chunt, but Arnie is unhappy — missing his home and his family — so he goes up to his room not long after the podcast starts.

The rest of the episode follows the Mysterious Man, who we normally only hear at the beginning and end of each episode. He has recently hired an intern named Tricia to work in his Space Bunker. It's unclear what they do there, but they seem to have some involvement in the connection between worlds such as Earth and Foon. He explains that one of his jobs is to try to convince everyone listening that nothing they are hearing is real. Instead, the podcast is just a made-up fiction performed by actors.

The Mysterious Man confronts Tricia over the death of another intern applicant, Lucy. We also learn that Tricia may have adjusted a knob in the Purple Room that may result in a "type-4 cataclysmic event."

The Mysterious Man and Tricia visit the break room, during which we hear a distress call from a man named Kern.

Tricia finally admits to the Mysterious Man that she killed Lucy, and the Mysterious Man indicates that this was all according to his plan. Finally, Tricia notices a red light that has been flashing for a long time. That means that Arnie and his podcast have finished early. The Mysterious Man rushes to salvage the end of the episode.

At the end we hear an even more mysterious woman or child explain that everything we have heard on Hello from the Magic Tavern is, in fact, real.
