Will The Real Slim Shady Please Stand Up?
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

We open in flashback mode, 30 years ago. Young Roger (Radek Hewson) finds Young Jedikiah (Jared Ager-Foster), who has been badly beaten, in a van down by the river. Jed is armed and blathering about how the bully who beat him up is right: Jed is week. Roger is able to grab the gun, but in the brothers' struggle, it accidentally discharges. Roger thrusts out his free hand. Instead of striking Jed, the bullet freezes, mid-air. They boys are all but speechless. Finally, the bullet falls to the ground. Kudos to the casting department. Messers. Hewson and Ager-Foster look right in their roles. Hewson also manages to look like he could be younger brother to Stephen and Luca. and We flash forward to...

Today. We pick up right where we left off at the end of "Superhero." Stephen has found his his dad's tastefully obscured naked, cryogenically frozen corpse in Jed's butcher shop basement nerd hole. It's clear Jed has just told Stephen the flashback story.

JED: Your father saved my life. I owe him everything.

STEPHEN: This is how you repay him?

JED: A Lannister always pays his debts. Um, I mean, I loved Roger. Everything I've done and studied was for the purpose of understanding and protecting him. He was more than my brother, he was my lab rat life's work. This is all part of the plan.

STEPHEN: No way.

JED: Way. You want him back and so do I. I couldn't tell you about this earlier, because Flounder the Founder would have sniffed it out. This is nothing, in comparison with what Bathory had in store for Roger.

AUDIENCE: Who now?

JED: Bathory -- the Founder, i.e. Flounder.

RECAPPER: Now he gets a name?

JED: Would you believe Roger was in more danger from Flounder, than from being shot in the chest and frozen?

STEPHEN: Do I get an ice cream?

JED: Sure. See, Flounder invented this machine to amplify Roger's powers.

STEPHEN: Machine for what?

JED: I don't know.


JED: The point is Roger risked death to stop it.

RECAPPER: He achieved death!
