TAG TEAM SURVIVOR 2
The front of the MGM Grand is cast in shadow, and looming large in that shadow is a large, horrible structure. Dark and foreboding. And standing at the top of that shadow is a man.
Nick Stuart: Folks, I’m getting word that we’re about to start with the second round of the Survivor competition.
Richard Parker: Okay, but… what the hell am I looking at?
The structure becomes far less menacing in a dazzle of light. A single tall staircase built from blue steel rises twenty feet into the air, leading to a platform large enough for several large, angry men to grab colored puzzle bags. Aligned along the sides of the stairs are two half-tube slides, like the kind you find on a playground. The thing was absolutely covered in strange cardboard constructs, like something an elementary school student would’ve constructed. Nonsense crafted in a grade schooler’s art class lines the safety rails of the staircase.
The platform at the top of the structure has the largest piece of cardboard, which has been glued together with the loving cooperation of the Glue Factory and their latest product, Civil Dusk. If you happen to be there, you would notice the strange scent of French toast. That is Civil Dusk. Drawn on this cardboard, somewhat crudely, is the shape of a berry. Three sets of bags of puzzle pieces sit on a table at the top. Blue, for Team VIAGRA. Red, for DUI. Yellow, for Crudely Civilized.
As for the man standing at the top of the structure, he is familiar. Maybe. All you really need to know about him is that he wore no shirt, save for a lab coat. And the top of his head is a blackberry.
Nick Stuart: Uh, I think I know who’s responsible for the décor…
Richard Parker: Jesus Christ, no, is that another fruit guy? Seriously? One was already two too many!
The man raises a microphone to his lips.
Baron von Blackberry: AHAHA! BEHOLD! I, the great and mighty and ABSOLUTELY PERFECT Baron von Blackberry, stand here as your master of ceremonies! Soon! SOON! Ten teams of seventeen men, two rock gods, and one mannequin shall rush to where I am, collect puzzle pieces, and then return to construct their DIABOLICAL work!
He pauses, soaking in the adulation from the dozens of people who have gathered to bear witness to the disaster about to unfold.
Baron von Blackberry: You will be constructing 100-piece puzzles from the hit cartoon, of which I so gloriously star in, “Mega Job and the Ten True Fruits”. The first tribe to successfully puzzle their way to a solution shall be victorious! AHAHA!
Richard Parker: Okay. Uh, Nick?
Nick Stuart: Yeah, Richard?
Richard Parker: I need to know something. What the hell is “Mega Job and the Ten True Fruits”?
Nick Stuart: I was told it was a very popular cartoon on YouTube. We’re talking millions and millions of views, here. Yes, it’s the same Mega Job that was in PRIME before. And their production company has graciously provided the jigsaw puzzles we’ll be using tonight.
Richard Parker: Okay. I want to know if I’m in hell. I want to know if this is hell and I am living in it. And what the hell does King Blueberry have THIS time?
The camera has cut to the competitors as they start lining up in front of the structure. Most of them are there, except for Joe Fontaine for Team VIAGRA, Pat Cassidy of Crudely Civilized, and El Hijo del Super Cool Guy of DUI. Evidently, they are all on puzzle duty. In the background, Shweta Kallemullah of the Fighting For Nora Foundation is operating a sports drink stand, and is doing charitable business with the fans who’ve come to watch this fiasco.
More importantly, King Blueberry has a mechanism strapped to his back, with a hose that he waves around in his hand.
Nick Stuart: I think that’s a leaf blower, Richard.
Richard Parker: Oh, hell no.
After several tense moments, the sound of a fog horn reverberates in the night of Las Vegas.
Nick Stuart: And it begins!
Have you ever seen those videos of people getting in the store as it opens on Black Friday? So many people, moving forward in the name of holiday consumption. If they are to fall, they would be crushed underfoot in the name of the gaping maw of the holidays. It isn’t uncommon. Such a rush would surely suggest a mistake on the part of the store ownership, underestimating the basic principles of supply and demand.
Anyway, here’s Bobby Dean rubbing himself down with some sort of strange, gelatinous substance while everyone else rushes up the stairs.
Doozer hangs back, making sure that Bobby is properly lathered down with the type of practiced motion that came from this not being his first time he’d ever had to lather Bobby up in questionably slick substances. Now he’s beautiful and somewhat shiny.
Richard Parker: I feel like I need to put in for therapy after this contest, and it only just started.
The rush up the stairs is rough for the people not hanging back. Sid Phillips and Mushigihara, the two biggest men on the Team VIAGRA side of things, barrel forward like holiday shoppers looking to score a Playstation 5. Their collective size makes the prospect of stopping them seem ludicrous.
But then, one man manages to shove them both aside and put himself out into the lead.
Nick Stuart: Barry Delgado’s shoved his way up front! He’s taken an early lead!
Richard Parker: Man’s built like a fire hydrant, of course he did!
There’s a lot of elbows and shoving going on in the frantic climb up the stairs. Kenny Freeman takes one from Nova that knocks him over the railing. Fortunately for him, he lands on the slide and slides down to the bottom again.
Meanwhile, Nathan Filmix outright attempts to grab a waistlock on Brock Newbludd, as though he’s going to suplex him down the stairs. Brock responds by hitting him in the face with an elbow, and then slamming his head into the rail.
Baron von Blackberry: Ooh! Good one, ‘ol Brocky boy! You take it to that wrestle pervert!
Nate Colton then picks a fight with Brock in defense of his partner, and the two exchange punches even as they climb up the stairs. Behind them, King Blueberry is walking casually up the stairs, like he’s going to fetch a carton of milk from an upstairs neighbor instead of rushing to be the first up the platform.
The first three to make it up to the platform are Phillips, Mushigihara, and Boogie. Boogie grabs his first set of puzzle pieces, only to turn around to see two very large, very angry men looming over him.
Just when things are about to go very wrong for the bassist, his partner Trent Sadikaj immediately enters the fray. Sid, sensing something is wrong, turns around only to find out exactly why the lead singer is called “Electric Boots”. Because he got kicked in the face. Very, very hard. Obviously.
The sumo half of the Dangerous Mix turns around to engage Sadikaj, but doing so allows Delgado to throw himself down the slide like he’s trying to score a touchdown. A poke in the eye from Sadikaj allows him the opening to snatch a second red bag for his team, and make a stylish escape by sliding down the slide by his feet, arms outstretched.
Nick Stuart: Solid Gold Rock n’ Roll have taken the early advantage for DUI!
The showmanship of Boots is his downfall, however. As he slides down, he doesn’t see David Fox come flying over the rails with a swinging 619-style kick as he’s halfway down. The attack clotheslines Trent, and sends his puzzle bag flying out of his hand and down into the crash mat below.
Nick Stuart: Oh my god!
Richard Parker: Oh no, not Boots!
Trent’s body continues to slide down, but in far more pain than you should be when going down a slide. Fox hangs on to the railing, and manages to clamber back up to the staircase.
Meanwhile, Bobby Dean and Doozer are making progress up the stairs. Well, slow progress. Well, okay. Bobby has to stop halfway up because he really needs to rehydrate. Doozer pulls out water bottles from his jorts with considerable annoyance, clearly prepared for this problem.
Don’t worry, Bobby! We all believe in you!
The next one to manage to get up to the platform is Nathan Filmix. The product of the Kabal Training Grounds looks contemptuously at the bags of puzzle pieces, and then at Baron von Blackberry, who’s standing in a corner with his microphone still in hand.
Rather than go for the pieces, Filmix casts a glare at Blackberry.
If Blackberry is intimidated by the death glare, his maniacal laughter in the face of it says otherwise. Rather than go for one of the red bags remaining on the table, Filmix takes a step towards Blackberry.
Richard Parker: Gonna say that I don’t think Nathan Filmix appreciated that “wrestle pervert” comment.
Fortunately, before things get too out of hand, Nate Colton reaches him and points repeatedly at the red bags, guiding his tag team partner to win the match rather than take out his excess aggression on the fruit that wasn’t participating in the match. Eventually, Filmix relents and snatches a red bag. Then he goes to the slide and glares at it, like he’s above doing such a stupid thing as going down a fun ride for children. He has to be persuaded by Colton to go down, but he relents.
Nick Stuart: DUI is out to an early lead here, with Delgado—
Richard Parker: Boogie.
Nick Stuart: –and Filmix retrieving bags before the other tribes have gotten hold of one!
At the top of the ramp, Sid Phillips has recovered from getting stomped in the face by a guy often called Boots – who’d have thunk it? – and is handed a blue bag by the other big man that joined him up there, Mushigihara. Together, the two hulking brutes of DUI make their escape down the slides.
Nate Colton realizes far too late that Mushigihara is careening down the slide far faster than he was. The sumo manages to barrel into him, and both men tumble off of the slide in a heap.
Meanwhile, the two members of the Fighting For Nora Foundation, Jonathan Rhine and Paxton Ray, make it up to the platform to retrieve puzzle bags for DUI. Likewise, so does Randall Schwartz. He begins to take all of the bags for Crudely Civilized.
Nick Stuart: Uh, I don’t think Mr. Schwartz understands the rules!
Richard Parker: The damn fruit didn’t say he couldn’t do it, though! Wait, why is he in charge of this, anyway?
As if hearing Richard’s comment that he’s in charge of things, Baron von Blackberry steps in and informs Randall Schwartz that he can only take one bag. Randall is furious, yelling at Blackberry. However, Blackberry matter-of-factly starts taking bags from Randall until he’s left with only one.
Nick Stuart: Referee Elvis Nixon is on the floor observing the construction of the puzzles, so… I guess Blackberry is taking care of things on the platform?
Richard Parker: This is highly irregular! Why aren’t there two referees?!
As Randall is arguing with a man that literally has a fruit on his head, Paxton and Rhine both grab their puzzle pieces, and make for the slides.
And then, a lot of bad things start happening at once.
Let’s start with down at ground level.
Trent Sadikaj has recovered from getting clotheslined by David Fox on his way down the slide. The worst part is that, knowing this man, he would do it again. But his real concern is trying to find the bag he lost getting kicked. Unfortunately for him, someone else hanging around at ground level has decided to join him in the search.
They’re not in his tribe.
That’s because they’re Garbage Bag Johnny.
To explain, GBJ behind the structure before the contest started, telling his partner that he had a grand plan that’s much better than any shenanigans involving a jetpack. Said plan? To fill himself with helium, so that he became lighter than air, and then he could simply float up and grab the puzzle pieces.
GBJ: Oh, hey, what’s good?
This plan, as you can imagine, just makes GBJ sound like Mickey Mouse. If he chuckled right now, Disney would probably sue somebody. They’re litigious over there.
Trent gawks at GBJ like he’s seen a very high-pitched ghost. Then Nova punches him in the face. Why’s Nova here? Because he just came down from retrieving a puzzle bag of his own, obviously. Was that not mentioned? Sorry. A lot’s happening.
Nova raises an eyebrow at GBJ, who gives him a goofy thumbs-up in response, and then the two make their way back to the stairs to make their next ascent.
Meanwhile, their fellow tribesmen, the Masters of the Multiverse (well, the B-Team of it, I suppose) have returned with two more puzzle bags between them. As do Jonathan Rhine and Paxton Ray of Team VIAGRA. King Blueberry lingers conspicuously at the top of the slide, watching intently for something to happen at ground level. Once he’s certain that the sweet Fighting for Nora boys are on their way back up for another go, King Blueberry goes down the slide.
Nathan Filmix gets into it with Brock Newbludd again on the stairs, and the two men battle back and forth over a suplex that Filmix definitely wants to do but Newbludd won’t allow. Nova and GBJ start running up the stairs, past the two grapplers. Halfway up, GBJ stops to pull out a banana. For the potassium, you see. Once he pulls the peel off, he just tosses it over his shoulder onto the stairs. This spells bad news for David Fox, who takes a wrong step on the banana peel and pratfalls down the stairs because of it.
Baron von Blackberry: Kids, if there’s any advice I can give after this match, it’s that you shouldn’t litter!
Richard Parker: Not sure I’d take advice from a berry, but even I’d agree with that.
Up top, Bobby Dean and Doozer have reached the promised land of the top of the platform. Somehow. Blackberry gives the two of them a thumbs up. Bobby, though out of breath from his climbs, manages to return it. Doozer just shakes his head. The two eGG Bandits then grab their puzzle bags, and go down the slide.
Hey, have you ever heard the sound that a very greased up Bobby Dean makes when he goes down a slide? It’s pretty gnarly. He goes pretty fast and actually makes it to the bottom of the slide before Doozer does.
Elsewhere, things have devolved into a melee. The Fighting For Nora boys end up getting to scrap with the Multiverse boys, exchanging blows between them as they slowly climb the stairs. Boots and Boogie have managed to recover from their early setbacks, only to find a new setback in GBJ’s ever-increasing number of banana peels. Seriously. Man’s got the munchies.
All the while, Joe Fontaine, Pat Cassidy, and… uh, El Hijo del Super Cool Guy are busying themselves figuring out the puzzles with what pieces they’ve gotten so far. Unsurprisingly, the DUI table hasn’t made a lot of progress so far. EHDSCG should probably get on that.
Anyway, how shall we mess things up from here?
Enter King Blueberry.
No, wait. Check that.
Enter King Blueberry and his goddamn industrial leaf blower.
Blueberry immediately points the business end of his leaf blower directly at the VIAGRA table, and the pieces start to go flying off. Fontaine yells and covers what remains of the puzzle with his body. Among other things that go flying from Blueberry’s antics include Joe’s fabulous cape, some of Shweta’s sports drinks, and at least one life-sized cardboard cutout of beloved English actress, Dame Helen Mirren.
How did that get there?
Well, you’d have to ask Timo Bolamba, his Google Assistant, and maybe Baron von Blackberry.
Joe manages to put himself between His Highness King Blueberry, First of His Name, and the VIAGRA table. That’s when Blueberry simply points the leaf blower in Joe’s face. Folks, don’t do this. It’s very mean. Anyway, Joe gets disoriented from the sudden rush of air in his face, and it allows Blueberry to hip-check him right into the table.
Nick Stuart: There has to be something in the rules against this, but our referee on hand, Elvis Nixon, is allowing it!
Richard Parker: Technically speaking, and I can’t believe I’m saying anything positive about something King Blueberry is doing, but I don’t think it’s against the rules to blow all of your opposition’s puzzle pieces away with a leaf blower!
King Blueberry hums a tune to himself that only he can hear, because leaf blower. And it makes him very unaware that one man is approaching him that is very big, very mean, and very unhappy. His name is Sid Phillips, and he wants to do exactly one thing to King Blueberry.
Blueberry realizes the danger immediately before Sid has him by the throat.
Nick Stuart: And here’s Sid Phillips, Joe Fontaine’s tag team partner! He’s looking to deliver a powerbomb to King Blueberry!
But it isn’t to be. Not yet. Before Sid could place Blueberry’s head between his thighs, Blueberry shoves his leaf blower’s hose into Sid’s face. This disoriented Sid just long enough for Blueberry to make his escape back up the stairs, with Sid in hot pursuit. Blueberry dodges around the brawling going on up the stairs, and then dodges past Mushigihara to the point that Mushi manages to slip on one of the banana peels left behind by Garbage Bag Johnny.
Sid is unfettered, though.
The big man pushes his way through the throngs of very punchy professional wrestlers, gets over Bobby Dean who’s just now coming out of his nap, and rapidly catches up to Blueberry at the top of the platform. Blueberry grabs one of DUI’s last remaining bags of puzzle pieces, but as he’s about to escape down the slide, he’s suddenly grabbed by Sid.
Sid actually knees him in the gut the moment he gets close enough, and then puts him in position for a powerbomb. Considering the leaf blower is still strapped to Blueberry, this is easier said than done, but he has the berry up and…
Nick Stuart: Oh dear god! Sid Phillips just delivered a sitout powerbomb on King Blueberry! On the slide!
Sid and KB take a leisurely trip down the slide together, only one is in considerably more pain than the other. I mean, you try taking a powerbomb with that thing on your back. Not fun!
Richard Parker: And down they go…
KB tumbles out from between Sid’s legs when they reach the ground, but before Sid could even fully get off of the slide, he is met by Nate Colton.
Nate grabs him by the waist, and despite the size difference, Nate roars and throws Sid over his head with a belly-to-belly suplex!
Nick Stuart: What a suplex from Nate Colton!
Sid hits the ground in a painful roll, momentum carrying him back up to his knees. That’s when he’s met with Pat Cassidy, who takes one look at the big man, picks up one of his empty bottles of booze, and cracks it over Sid’s head.
Richard Parker: That’s gonna leave a mark, Nick!
Sid is wobbly after all of that, and then Cassidy grabs him from behind and delivers a belly-to-back suplex, sending Sid careening down to the ground next to the DUI table.
What I’m going to tell you next is going to sound absurd.
Which says a lot, considering the braintrust involved in this mess.
Sid’s momentum takes him into El Hijo del Super Cool Guy, who’d definitely been hard at work on DUI’s puzzle this whole time and hasn’t been sitting there being a mannequin. Sid, in his flailing from being hit with two suplexes and a beer bottle, manages to grab the son of Super Cool Guy as he’s landing, flinging him up and towards Team VIAGRA’s table.
Joe Fontaine, who by this point is back to his feet and trying to find lost puzzle pieces, has the misfortune of being exactly where EHDSCG is about to land.
Legs landed between Joe’s head, and suddenly…
Joe Fontaine: *WILHELM SCREAM*
Nick Stuart: …
Richard Parker: …
Nick Stuart: Did… did I just see…
Richard Parker: Yes, Nick… I think we did…
Nick Stuart: Joe Fontaine just found out what lightning is like when it strikes twice, and he’s been hit with a Canadian Destroyer by El Hijo del Super Cool Guy! He’s down!
Richard Parker: I don’t even any more. I just don’t even. I can’t believe he’s been made into a Larry.
Back at the stairs, Bobby Dean had heroically attempted to make a second climb up the stairs. But he gets tired two steps up, and decides to take a nap on the third. Doozer yells at him to get up and keep going, but Bobby’s snores inform him how well that’s going. So Doozer loudly curses – don’t worry, the censors picked it up – and marches up the stairs without him.
Richard Parker: Wait! You can’t just sleep there! You idiot!
This has some problems going forward for the tribes looking to grab the last puzzle pieces. Bobby is very large-boned, and very greasy. David Fox and Mushigihara confer with each other, and then Mushi steps forward while Fox takes a few steps back before running.
David Fox flies several feet over Bobby Dean’s corpulent form, and lands on the stairs running. Kenny Freeman and Randall Schwartz also confer, and attempt to do the same thing, with Freeman trying to launch Schwartz.
Schwartz… doesn’t make it. He pratfalls right into Bobby’s prodigious belly and falls on his ass, far slicker than he ever wanted to be in his life.
Brock Newbludd approaches, and attempts to make it over the old fashioned way. He’s maybe halfway past Bobby when he’s suddenly grabbed from behind by Nathan Filmix. With a roar of his own that matches that of his tag team partner, Filmix launches Newbludd down the stairs with a German suplex, landing the Milwaukee native on his stomach right by the base of the thing.
Pat Cassidy, in the middle of drinking his third bottle of beer at that moment, gulps significantly. He knows he has to replace his partner for now.
He looks up the stairs, and makes the sign of the cross.
Then he slowly makes his way up the stairs, managing to get around Bobby somehow.
Back at the VIAGRA table, Joe Fontaine has managed to crawl back to the table to put together the puzzle some more. Or at least, he would… but a certain someone and his certain leaf blower keeps interfering. King Blueberry, despite standing like his spine is misaligned after being powerbombed by Sid, is firmly making the VIAGRA tribe’s life a living hell.
Then he feels a tap on his shoulder.
King Blueberry: Oh, shi—
And Paxton Ray punches his ass to the ground.
Paxton Ray: Been waitin’ all day to do that.
Sid Phillips, meanwhile, has crawled over to Shweta’s sports drink stand. His face is red from anger and exhaustion. That’s when he spots a man in a mask, and instantly puts two and two together.
He gets five.
As in, Enemigo #5.
Nick Stuart: Uh oh…
He grabs the masked man by the sides of his head, and puts him in position for a powerbomb.
Richard Parker: Oh, man, can’t wait for the fine on this one.
Before Sid can go throug with what’s sure to be another fine, he’s suddenly kicked in the chest so hard with a yakuza kick that he falls backwards and nearly lands right on Shweta’s sports drink table, much to her distress.
Who could have stopped him?
It’s Baron von Blackberry.
How did he get there so fast?
Don’t ask too many questions.
Nick Stuart: Uh, did Baron von Blackberry just… kick his own guy?
Richard Parker: Think he saved him from a fine. Seriously, though, that dude’s a manager. How’d he kick him so hard?
Blackberry turns to Shweta with an apologetic shrug, helps Enemigo #5 up to his feet, and then runs back up the stairs of the competition.
It’s too late, though.
Blackberry leaving his post allows most of the puzzle pieces to be taken at once. Doozer has all of DUI’s bundled in his arms as he comes down the slide. As does Nova and Garbage Bag Johnny, who’ve successfully procured the remaining bags for Crudely Civilized and are making a daring escape down the slide.
David Fox doesn’t do this. He grabs the one puzzle bag and makes his way down, and only realizes his mistake when he sees what the other tribes had done.
That leaves one man left at the top of the platform.
Bobby Dean has managed to reach the top of the stairs.
How did he do that? He’d been asleep the whole time?
Well, what did I say about questions?
Bobby takes one look at the DUI table, and realizes that he’d climbed up the stairs for no reason. Doozer already has all of DUI’s puzzle bags. So he goes over to the slide, takes a seat, and grabs his own legs. Then he rolls down the slide.
At the bottom of the slide, David Fox is getting into it with Barry Delgado. Brock Newbludd is fending off both Nathan Filmix and Nate Colton, and is helped by his tribemate, Kenny Freeman.
And then Bobby Dean flies out of the slide and crashes into all of them.
The sound of bowling pins could be heard by anyone nearby.
Richard Parker: …I don’t even have a witty remark for that. My wit is dried up. It’s a desert now.
Nick Stuart: You and me both, buddy.
Mushigihara seems frustrated watching this unfold below him. Visibly so. You wouldn’t think it from a guy as stoic as him, but then, you didn’t normally see steam flying from a man’s nostrils, either. He shouts a defiant “OSU!” and goes flying up the stairs, at a speed you wouldn’t expect from a former sumo wrestler. He reaches the top, snatches up the last of VIAGRA’s puzzle bags, and launches himself down the slide like he’s E. Honda.
As it so happens, the slide he goes down is crowded by more brawling wrestlers. Doozer and Trent Sadikaj have teamed up to take down Pat Cassidy, who’s fighting the two of them. Randall Schwartz eventually comes over to help. El Hijo del Super Cool Guy’s right leg is in there, for some reason, too. It’s a good time.
And then Mushigihara comes flying off the slide and crashes into all of them.
More bowling pin sounds.
Nick Stuart: Carnage abound!
Richard Parker: I don’t think this happens in actual Survivor. Like, the reality show. Pretty sure nobody gets punched. Or powerbombed. Or gets rolled over by Bobby Dean. Or take an Ultra Combo from Mushigihara.
It takes some time before wrestlers start to recover from all the shenanigans, but all of the shenanigoons eventually start trying to figure out what puzzle pieces go where. Team VIAGRA has the extra problem of trying to find all of the pieces that’d gone flying from Blueberry’s leaf blower. Sid Phillips eventually attempts to powerbomb a puzzle piece. It goes poorly.
Crudely Civilized, meanwhile, have the twin problems of no one knowing how to put together a puzzle, and the Saturday Night Specials possibly being too drunk and disorderly to see things straight. For DUI, Doozer is doing his best, even when people around him are very confused about how a puzzle is solving itself.
Look, these are professional wrestlers, not members of MENSA. Besides El Hijo del Super Cool Guy, anyway.
The puzzle solving is frantically paced, and there aren’t a lot of suplexes going on. I’m sorry. We hit our suplex quota for this match. If you’d like to see more suplexes, please complain to your local suplex requisition office.
Eventually, Jonathan Rhine and Joe Fontaine start to make good headway on the puzzle, and start to pull ahead. At least, they did, before King Blueberry suddenly fires up the leaf blower one last time. Before the two of them realize what’s about to happen, their remaining pieces go flying into Shweta’s drink stand.
Joe Fontaine attempts to dive and catch some of them, and accidentally knocks over the stand in the process, much to Shweta’s screams of anguish.
With VIAGRA unable to proceed, King Blueberry picks up the last piece that DUI needs and slams it down on the table. Elvis Nixon comes over, examines their work, and raises Blueberry’s hand in victory.
Nick Stuart: Tribe DUI have won the challenge, with a huge assist from King Blueberry, who’s won it for his team!
Richard Parker: DUI won again? What’s… what’s going to happen to the other two tribes? They’re going to be down to two teams each!
Nick Stuart: It remains to be seen, Richard, but for now… DUI’s victory ensures that all of its members will remain safe. We’ll have to see who survives to see the next show!
