After a trip to the Olympics of 2024, the Doom Patrol have some Zombie Butt containing stuff to do. Read on to see how they’re trying to start in The Butt Patrol.
We start in 2016, which is filled with broken mannequins. Elaine is a screamy man dressed up as a protective coverall so he can enter the area. It became clear then that such an empty city is still unreal, yet yet there’s a set, in a test facility. It begins to roll the mannequins up, but once again he spots a hole, a rip in the shopfront. Immediately panic his way to a red emergency, and slapping it with his palm before trying to escape. That’s not to be. From the viewpoint of the scientists who dressed him few minutes earlier, we watch as a fog fills the room and slams himself into the viewing window of the lab.
Upon the helm, an independent leader will be built.
In the present day, Rita goes up the stairs at Doom’s HQ with a pack of documents and plans. Shes glad to know everyone is already collected; she’s been rehearsing diverse ways to save her future selves. Rita believes that the best way to avoid the world ending up as it was in the future 2042 that they saw The imminent asspocalypse, says Cliff in the word of a definite solution is to do something differently. She has started to wear flats instead of heels. She recommends that Jane wears some color, and Cliff might curse less. Vic carefully suggests they should think larger, given that the whole planet is on stake if they don’t make a real change. If you don’t yet know, yknow what the imminent horde of Zombie Butts is like.
Rita believes that the goal of her plan was for her. She hypothesizes the Doom Patrol created the Zombie Butts, and if they were them they could create they can destroy. She suggested starting with the scene of the crime: Darren Jones. The old barn.
Sadly, the rest of the team thought about something like a change of leadership. A gypsy Rita wants them to vote, and think she needs a few egg salad sandwiches. They are sorry not to win one. What they could agree is that most of the team’s members are unsuitable Vic has no tech, Cliff and Larry are unqualified and Jane just plain doesn’t want to. It leaves only Rouge. Rita, what we can predict, is not for it. The Red and Rita match, but essentially, the team decides to go hunt for Darren Jones, with or without Rita.
Rouge insists they’re taking an hour to complete their mission before pulling Cliff out of the bed and then taking him on top-secret missions. She is splitting the team after she distracted others. Rouge wants only Cliff to destroy Darren. Cliff needs no massaging beyond telling the truth that he is an indestructible zombie-killer, so off they go.
It’s 2017 and doctor Margaret Yu is a highly-specialized project student. A world famous anthropologist, linguist and music player dances her way through a brief orientation. The Ant Farms department has created a creature that could be reproduced by a weaponized force of nature. Yu should establish a communication tool, so that the team can command the creatures.
The viewing window from the familiar lab opens to reveal a tense gallery, tearing apart a fake shopping mall.
They’re beautiful, Yu croons.
Vic is on his computer trying to get more information, but he’s interrupted by his phone. The friend he reached out to last episode, texts to see if he was serious about getting together. Vics about to respond when the computer beeps with a Nationally-State Office hit a grainy image of a butt, crack full of teeth and all.
In the greenhouse, Larry wants to convince Keeg everything will be OK. He tries to trust the parasite, but Keeg gets into his chest! Trying to claim he’s still in charge, but Keeg zooms away just as Rita barges in to confront Larry for betraying her during the leadership vote.
Meanwhile, Jane points out the puzzle that she gave her. She begins to spread the pieces, but to find that there is no way in which to hide the bits. They look the same and spin when she try to connect them.
Jane finds Vic in the kitchen. He told her that the guys at the house left without them. I’m angry that everyone ditched her lately, and Vic and I always get back to work. He is going to follow up with his Zombie Butt lead from the Bureau and try to catch it. She asks Jane to join, and they think it’s best to invite Rita and Larry so they will hear that Larry chased Keeg and Rita chasing down Larry. They are quickly going from the other side.
Cliff bicycled. As he says, who needs a Doom Bus or a time machine if you’re having two wheels and unlimited stamina? Rouge does not have a different point of view, but on the plus side at least they both remembered that they had to wear helmets. Cliff distracted as he passed an abandoned 1974 Gran Tourino. He reminisced on fixing cars with his dad, but on Rouges suggestion he’d pop the hood again to feel the sensation of despair he turned down, still determined to save his first touch for his family. On the stove glove is still on.
Rouge says that the two are quite like old relics, discarded by Cliff. They start arguing whether the car is a metaphor, but are interrupted by a tractor passing past. A tractor with a snarling, growling, strangely familiar driver. Is Darren Jones, and Cliff thinks he’s singing?
He rehearsed on the Ant Farm.
Musical theater with an eyes! Before the holidays in 2017, Doctor Yu has found a way to communicate with the Sots, even if he’s not proficient in his singing sand. They all have hats. Yu and a room full of scientists are showing off a show for the General. I try to explain that The Butts are very intelligent creatures with advanced social dynamics and a love for music. The general smacks on a glass. The Butts stop their musical number and turn, so they should not hesitate before they snarling and launching their musical record. It’s pretty impressive, they look at their attack, all of them broken their cheeks and thousands of teeth. Don’t make that stupid! It’s a repeated refrain that calms the general, but does give a life-speak to whole mates.
The General and his agents saw everything they needed. They praise Yu, saying that the project is a success and they have everything they need to survive a weaponry revolution. Yu is horrified, trying to convince them that what they have here is a hugely valuable discovery that should not be weaponized. But after a brief, polite threatening, she is told that she will be reassigned, and so that she will be forgotten.
It’s still an act of reasoning for him, but it’s still unclear what destiny they had had. It’s not going well. Rita’s disgrace over his betrayal still makes him angry. Larry is already stressed, and finally snaps. He delivers a sloppy speech to Rita about her influence and the vanity play that she plays in her leadership. But that wasn’t what made him vote against her. She admits that it was what they’ve been seeing in the future. That time travel can change the perspective of people. She asks if Larry thinks his future is not her fault, but she doesn’t. In fact, he saw his future self separate from Keeg, and he’s not able to do that. Keeg is all he has left. That angers Rita, as she says her team was a team leader.
Jane and Vic are (badly) undercover agents of the National Health Agency. Jane introduces Vic to his plan what he’ll do if it works. Vic says he just wants to stop the world. He just wants to continue.
You keep telling yourself that you’ll move, but it looks like you’re losing the time, you tell Jane. Vic tells him he needs time. Jane counters that it must be nice to know what you are expecting. Vic asks if she’s spoken with Kay lately and proposes that I think that what Kay wants for Jane is different from what Kay wants for herself. Upon being asked, Vic admitted to meeting Kay and that she had him record a meeting with her.
He can’t tell Jane everything, but his telephone calls to him.
So what, we just wait in a barn for her to get him done? Cliff asks about Rouge. Do you mind he smells us coming? Rouge reveals she doesn’t have hats of piplings infused with an air freshener, but she has doused her bicycle helmets with Niles old cologne.
Darren whistles his way across the property. The pair look at him and he welcomes him to the farm, in his zombie snarl. Cliff is amazed to be able to understand him still. I knew this day would come, says Darren in response to Cliffs proclamation that he’d go to kill him to save the world.
From the Confusion of Cliff and Rouges, Darren seemed to have sworn to be an American. He doesn’t eat brains; he is isolated at his farm and eats heirloom tomatoes. Even so, he knew only one thing left to his soul. He asks Cliff to kill him.
Cliff isn’t sure that he can kill an unarmed Zombie Butt farmer. So Rouge pulls his helmet off, telling Darren his tempting brain and making the decision easier when he attacks.
Unfortunately, Cliff loses his oven glove in the fight. After 40 years, his first touch is the bloody and cold remains of Darren’s smushed-in zombie face.
I just did not get to my mouth.
After being exposed to the presence of agents in the Bureau, Vic and Jane meet a mercenary Butt hunter that worked with the Bureau to stop the outbreak. He recently came to possession of the final target. This Butt failed to behave like one another and looked ill. He took ice to carry that. Jane and Vic escape with the iced Butt just when the real Normalcy agents arrive.
The Butt pushed the streets while in 2017, Doctor Yu ate a sandwich as he was listening to classical music. When she finally realises what’s happening, her colleague advises her to take a step before the exterminators arrive. Then, when he flees, he finds one of his favorite butts hiding in a cabinet.
In the current years the Doom Manor kitchen is open to all, and asks about the luck of the situation with Keeg. The lights are reading. Rouge and Cliff win after losing to Darren Jones. Why are you all so upset? Rouge wonders whether they are a lack of enthusiasm. The world is destroyed.
As soon as I arrived with the iced Butt in the crate, Vic contradicts her that it isn’t. Yet, they all get gold stars; Cliff is happy with resuming the last Zombie Butt.
With the open crate, Cliff has a very hot breath. The Butt is snowing and defenseless. Since the beginning, he began to feel the pain of an eye, with a sexy tattoos being ripped up like a grapefruit. He’s shaken, and needs a minute. The camera goes out and goes to Rouge, listening from the stairwell.
Vic returns to his computer and finally texts the day it goes by!
Jane walks alone while watching the video of a video interview with Kay. She talked about the Underground, what it is, its purpose. She used to know. To protect her. But something has changed. No one needs the personas for this purpose. Everyone should find a purpose, including Jane.
Ladies who will come along for lunch.
Doctor Yu is at the moment entering his apartment. Shes humming The Ladies Who Lunch while she pours some cereal and placing it on the table in front of the crow’s. She sings like a musician as she he digs into a song.
