Addressing last two posts: I don't think Trent would be the bully. I think he was just for that one episode, and I don't think he'll ever be a returning character. And also, this is the official blurb about the episode that appears in the description and press release:

Stan wants to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying by shooting a big dance video. Will he able to handle the pressure that goes along with the notoriety of taking on such a worthy cause?

Those two sources must lead us in the right direction, after all, just like the title of the episode, those sources are concrete and can't be changed. (I bet a million people are going to argue with me over that, don't worry, arguing is my forte!) Everything else, such as the Butters part and the unlikely bully part, could be purposefully misleading, or they could have simply decided to do a last minute change-the-episode.
If you don't like the direction SP's going in, quit watching.There's nothing we could do about it, unless you're producer or higher in the authority chain.And they won't listen to fan ideas.It's not worth your time to only hate.

True, I just wish they'd conclude Trent (make peace, or kill him), as he'll hold a grudge forever.

They mentioned the bully is unlikely, which is vague. Judging for what we (may) know, the bully is likely not:

Stan, Butters, Lola, Bebe, Tweek, Leeroy.

Which leads (excluding adults):

Kyle, Kenny, Cartman (Very Very very unlikely, as he'd be prime suspect), Wendy, Red, Token, Shelly, Craig, Clyde, Timmy, Jimmy, Pip (Providing he's not killed off. Again, we saw him die, but in South Park, who knows).

Bully aside, I'm interested in Stan's music video, as we seen in Elementary School Musical, he seemed music shy/awkward until the end. Intriguing to what he'll be singing.

Stan has no history of bullying others and would not do it to Butters. He never picks on him and him alone, they're friends, so to even think that is almost silly. Butters could be tormented the majority of the episode, could not. Considering he's not in the press images, main summary, or video, his part may very well be very small. And sounds like Stan may be working the whole of the episode with the video, and the video being one of the last scenes of the episode.


Sooooo looking forward to the ep! Will be 1,000X better than last week's, that's a cert.
I love: Stan, Butters, Cartman, Sharon.

I ship: Stan/Cartman <3

Stan: MMOOMM!!
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.

I think it's possible Stan is the "bully". You have to remember this is South Park. It's a pretty safe bet that the adults will view ANYTHING as bullying...even the most littlest thing. Stan has told Butters to shut up and called him gay before, those kinds of things people do see as bullying, and it could make sense if South Park pokes at that.

I just don't see Stan 100% free willing do a dance video...direct it, nonetheless.

He also took on a pimp for Nut Gobbler - Jimmy can be hard core. But don't sleep on Timmy, who fought him to a draw - and who also arranged for a certain turkey's assassination.

Well he was shown to be a good dancer in "You Got F'D in the A".

True, but Stan was sort of forced into 'fighting' Gary. The boys told Stan he should kick his ass but Stan responds 'maybe he won't fight.' Stan simply is not a physical person and doesn't like confrontation and even if he were to pick on someone else, Butters is again, very unlikely. Those days when the boys would single Butters out are *almost* gone. He hangs with them a lot more and again, Stan never really teased Butters to begin with. For all we know the bully is a new character like Kip Drodry was.

And Stan dancing... sure he won in You Got F'd... but he was only square dancing. I can only hope he picked up some new moves since then :lol: .

It would be sweet if Stan and Butters worked together in the ep tonight. Seeing my fav boys as a team after so long would rock.

Technically, square dancing is that stupid crap I did in elementary school where you dance in a square with 7 partners (4 of the opposite gender) and dance. In this episode, it was line dancing. Big difference.

I personally think that Stan the Bully is possible, but again I think it's a new character, maybe a 5th or 6th grader.

The press release sure did lead us to the right direction regarding City Sushi, right? :P
Butters is diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. The boys want to help Butters find out what's really happening to him but Butters may not like what they find.

I tell you this, you can battle all you want on who will be Butter's bully, but have you stopped and asked yourselves what it is he's being bullied for. We've seen in the past he was bullied for being a Melvin, wearing the professor chaos costume and more notably, for not kissing a girl.

Based on the fact that this episode lands on the Day of Pink, I believe he'll get bullied for wearing PINK! Mainly due to how Day of Pink got started, but hey, that's just my guess. Can't wait for the episode!
