Wade and Kaiya speculate on Ness's paternity, compare the network coverage of psychics vs. bird-phones, navigate a figurative minefield of foreign relations and then navigate a literal volcano! They finish up the episode by coming full circle and taking a peek back at the beginning of it all.

Wade and Kaiya witness the sped-up crumbling of a monkey relationship, discuss self-chosen nomenclature (twice!) and discover that the game devs are waving at them from the 1990s! Along the way, Kaiya determines that she's not playing Assassin's Creed, Wade tries (and fails) to beat the odds, and Kaiya manages to turn Wade's understanding of the ontology and ethics of EarthBound completely on its head.
