Holy Finale, Doom Patrollers! We’re speechless…well, almost.
It wouldn’t be a finale if we didn’t start with a flashback and this one offered some puzzling clues. Milwaukee 1969 – Jane is working at a diner; a man with a guitar outside begins flirting with her. She tells him her name is Miranda and she’s from many different places; he reveals he bought her a necklace with all the nickels she has left him.
We flash to the present at Doom Manor to find Cliff stressing over t-shirts for his daughter Clara’s wedding, Vic wallowing in heartbreak and self-pity, Rita joining in on Vic’s self-pity, and Larry, well, he’s just being Larry.
However, Herschel shows up and lets our fearless heroes know about Candlemaker and the fair, so they rush out to go, once again, and stop the world from ending.
Willoughby Kipling meets them at the fair – and reveals that the Candlemaker has already unleashed an army of imaginary friends on the world to kill everyone. Rita meets her imaginary friend, Mademoiselle Roxy – an amalgamation of magazine cut-outs; Vic meets Doctor Cowboy, who looks like Silas Stone; Cliff meets Jesus.
We get to see some more of Jane/Miranda’s past and learn exactly why Jane became primary and Miranda threw herself into the well. The personalities are also turning on Miranda as they start to question where Jane is. Even Kaye wants to know and the revelation is something no one expected.
