Gerald tries anything to escape the Troll Hunter’s revenge. Meanwhile, Cartman and Heidi make their way to SpaceX to try to get on the first rocket leaving for Mars.

God, it really is all going to shit. Member Berries really are a force to be reckoned with. 

There would be some kind of karmic justice if Heidi winds up dumping Cartman for Butters.

FINALLY Kyle figures it out! Took him long enough when he's supposed to be the smart one! Gerald is the lowest piece of shit. He'd better be getting what he deserves in the last two episodes. Shame we have to wait until after Thanksgiving.

It's been a while since we've seen Tom's Rhinoplasty. That it turned into Darth Vader's chambers is nothing short of amazing. Anyone else catch the David Hasselhoff poster in the background?

Reminder that Garrison's dick gets dry because it's an implant.

On the surface, the Memberberry stuff looks stupid but dammit, I loved every minute of it, especially the speakeasy. And the Godfather members WWII. It all makes sense, THAT'S what they're trying to do. Go back to the good old days of the world fighting each other.

And so Butters + Mars not happening + boring tour by Elon Musk = Cartman's inevitable meltdown, and it will be glorious. Speaking of which, Kyle finally solved the puzzle. Can't wait to see what happens...which will be in two weeks.

Well, I'm depressed all over again. I'm thinking Mars isn't far enough away. Who's up for Jupiter? I know it's mostly gas, but how is that different from what we got?

Maybe there will be a reset button, negating Garrison's win. It might be seen as lazy, but I wouldn't blame Matt and Trey for opting out.

Two more episodes to go, right? I've been recording the season on DVR, but I might delete it instead of rewatching. It's not poor quality, but it's a case where real life is way more fucked up than shit in South Park.

I have to watch this again because I kept getting interrupted and couldn't focus completely, but one thing I loved was "Hail to the Chief" played in a minor key whenever Garrison would appear.  Garrison is the perfect avatar for our real-life national disgrace.

I guess that the whole Danes/ Internet history/ Gerald trolling storyline is all coming together.  I have to admit that I have found it a little hard to follow the thread/ message on this, and it hasn't been my favorite storyline that they've done.

The member berries never fail to be hilarious.  Seriously, I laugh every time.

Gerald is a gigantic piece of shit and looking forward to him getting his.

It's interesting how the kids have really taken a backseat for the most part.  Kenny practically doesn't exist anymore and Stan is way in the background.

Really, really fun episode and epic storyline.

"Oh, geez..."

I want to know how they story-boarded this season. And I want to know where it would have gone, if last week had been different. 

Butters' 180 got right to the heart of how fucked up things are right now.

The member berries are brilliant this season. If only the UK had called sooner.

For a second, I was thinking of the Towelie episode. "Yeah, I want to get high."

South Park's twitter feed has been very helpful with how these episodes came to be. I think the ending to last week was pretty much the same, but they confirmed that Caitlyn would've vomited on Garrison instead of Randy.

"What, what, whaaaaat?" .... How long has it been since we heard that? (And now I'm inspired to look up "Kyle's Mom Is a Bitch" to listen to. Hee).

Poor Ike! Don't believe your dad, Ike. He is not going to make it up to you... and even if he does try, it likely won't be worth it.

I enjoyed this episode (but agree with @Lantern7 that it's also a little unnerving, too.) and am looking forward to how this is all going to play out.

Edited to add: And those MemberBerries still remind me of those cockroaches in "Joe's Apartment." Even more so now that they are getting together in larger numbers... though there weren't any semi-evil roaches in the movie like the mobbish MemberBerries (who were suitably wrinkled - hee).

I can't believe I'm having this discussion, but I thought his dick was getting dry due to "FUCK THEM ALL TO DEATH!"  He could be desensitized and wants more BJs and is asking politely?  This season is weird because it didn't turn out as T&M expected so they had to rewrite the script and get it to round the season back and have a cohesive finale with only 2 episodes left.

I'm enjoying the season but am having trouble buying the explanation of Member Berries as the root cause of everything. I though they got closer wehn Garrison confronted PC Principal. "You made me" makes a certain amount of sense, since you can argue that being overly-PC has caused a backlash which resulted in trolls and the most un-PC President ever.

BTW I'm not sure Boris Johnson is the best person to warn about "Membries", but it was fun to see him.

Trey and Matt did an interview with the NYT in September where they said that they don't storyboard the season. They set stuff up not knowing where it will go because they think it will be interesting later.  I have to think they knew TrollTrace would lead to world war potential, but other than that I think they're just tying stuff together as it comes. For example, the Cartman story seems like it's trying to self-propel but not really getting anywhere significant.

I enjoyed Garrison bringing up that it was the backlash to PC that helped lead to his rise to power.

Garrison would blame PC culture for his own failings at both being a decent human being and learning Canadian.   Obviously in some ways, PC Principal was extreme, but like the kids acknowledged in, I think, maybe, last season's finale(?) moving away from outdated rhetoric and acknowledging that things needed to change was not such a bad thing.

Yeah, that works.

It was good to see the old sweet yet secretly wise beyond his years Butters. His comment about how it was never a question that women could be funny, and how they had actually made big strides in comedy for years (referencing 9 to 5 as an example) was spot-on.

I can't get those Member berries out of my head.  Which I know is the point, but its so addictive. 

I too wonder how they put this together so quickly after the election.  I haven't read the twitter feed or anything about it elsewhere, but I would think they had to have a basic story and are just putting in different versions and substitutions in certain scenes now based on who won

I like the British version "membries" better.  And I loved the Brits realizing it was too late.

Now that Kyle knows his dad is responsible, will we get a speech?  IDK, people were pretty pissed last season every time he opened his mouth.

Man this keeps getting crazier.  Gotta love how P&S are using member berries to poke fun at those who keep longing for south park of yore but still manages to throw on some old references (Tom's Rhinoplasty, Sheila's WHAT WHAT WHAT).

Glad Kyle finally figured it out and Gerald truly has become the worst on a show where Butters' parents exist.

Of course Butters is going to be the one that breaks Cartman.  I can't wait to see the inevitable meltdown.

Didn't take long to include Steve Bannon.  And the Brexit reference was great.  Loved that they South Parked Boris Johnson.

I am wondering if they are using the chamber to modify Garrison's appearance so Garrison can opt out of being President without anyone knowing and go home to South Park while they have Trump take his place.

I don't want a reset button if it's going to get Gerald off the hook. It's ironic that his plan to frame Ike was basically moot, since the Troll Trace emoji analysis would have proved Ike wasn't the same troll. So Gerald basically burned his last bridge for nothing.

This was one of the best South Park episodes ever. Gerald is so disgusting, I loved it when Kyle came home and saw his brother in the corner and figured it all out, because Heidi is so smart of course. And I´m loving the new president.
