Description

With the help of Magic Paint, Blemish is back. More than one Blemish, in fact.

Summary

Space Bunker: Emperor Craig is away and Mysterious Intern is sowing doubt in Queen Tricia.

VM: Arnie is wet again (or still), obsessed with the Orange Beast riddle. He believes the river wants Earth Stuff, and he has tossed in the rest of his Camry parts. This caused the river to glow a little. He thinks if he can get it to glow brightly enough, it will unlock the next piece of the riddle.

Usidore thinks Earth holds the metaphorical key to getting close enough to the Dark Lord to kill him with the Blade of Veysgo Hallan. He’s also still on fire. Arnie proposes they try to wrap things up by Episode 100.

Chunt tries to shift the conversation to wedding plans. He’s decided he wants the entire wedding party to wear jeans and pink polos.

Usidore orders a round of drinks from…Blemish? He admits he and Chunt have been playing with the magic paint. Usi made a fancy, aspirational carfoon version of Blemish, and Chunt made a carfoon cat that vomits Blemishes. So close, Chunt.

Arnie has also created another more realistic carfoon Blemish, except this one is nasty. Real nasty. Chunt gets jealous, because he feels being nasty is his niche. As Chunt and Blemish challenge each other, Arnie and Usi realize Chunt isn’t even real. He’s just a nasty little carfoon.

Usidore wonders if they could create a realistic enough carfoon, could it replace the original? He disappears to the Astral Plane to contemplate art and reality. Arnie contemplates his own creative crisis: what do you do when your creation takes on a life of its own and you no longer recognize it?

Usi returns and announces carfoons have no souls and should be killed immediately. He takes their pain away by dissolving them with paint thinner. Arnie and Usi are left to wonder if they themselves are even real. Usidore nips back off to the Astral Plane where the disembodied voice gives him the key to determining humanity. He returns to the tavern and asks Arnie if he thinks paint is delicious. Because Arnie doesn’t immediately shoot it down, Usidore declares him definitively a carfoon. He also admits that paint is obviously delicious, which means he must be a carfoon as well.

Arnie blames art for their existential quandary. Depressed, Usidore drinks paint thinner and dissolves. Arnie apologizes to Fancy Blemish for his pointless existence and the ephemerality of a carfoon life. Fancy Blemish requests a carfoon paint chick, and as Arnie sketches a quick bride for the monster, the real Chunt and Usidore appear at This Very Table.

They end the episode agreeing to collaborate on a really good carfoon Blemish.
