(The Receptionist skips off to the little boys room)

Although the factory seems harmless, one by one, her group members disappear and the Mediator is left to fend for herself.

(Gah this factory is so dead, and I can’t even hang myself with the tiny noose..)

Eventually, it’s just the Mediator and Assistant left. Their fairy guide is no help, as he is confused by the proximity of FairyCo.

The Mediator and Assistant are separated when they decide to rest on separate conveyer belts.

(Pacman: chomp-chomp-comp-comp…)

Just when she’s heading towards the trash disposal, in the shape of a big, multi-toothed pacman, she’s rescued by a mysterious force.

(Well, my dear girl, assume your friends are dead and move on.)

The factory’s manager appears, who is also the village’s director. Apparently, he has two jobs!

The Meditor thinks it’s him that saved her from being smushed, but he appears to have no clue about anything around the factory. She decides to talk to the people at the top, and makes her way to the main conference room.

(blob-blob-blob-blob *need translation glasses*)

Inside is a surprise!

The entire company board is made of intelligent headless chickens, similar to the ones that escaped the village. The chickens are out for revenge against the humans, and it sounds pretty sinister..

Just when they’ve trapped the Mediator and are about to start their destructive plans, the Assistant comes barging in and shocks the chickens with his video camera: that makes the same sound as a gunshot!

(Like shooting fish in a barrel = Chickens in a boardroom?)

He eventually chases the chickens in the boardroom and in the factory into their demise.

(Goodbye, cruel world… )

The chickens that were cornered on a cliff outside the factory commit suicide..!

(After being shrink-wrapped.. you’re still alive?)

The Mediator releases the fairies that used to run the factory. Thy have no clue about what’s happening either, and the mystery continues.

But.. The Mediator does learn that the “mysterious force” that saved her from death in the factory….. was her own hair! It has it’s own intelligence!

Overall, this episode continues the madness that the first one started. I don’t know how anyone can come up with stuff this random, but it’s hilarious.

Rated – 4/5 Keeps the benchmark high and is preparing the viewer for a great series.

See the next episode!
