I'm betting this will be a return to Arkansas. Memba? World Wide Recorder Concert from Season 3?

Garrison's parents were in a picture frame last episode, so I'm betting they'll have an appearance! Hopefully they do. Hope there'll be a callback to Garrison's dad not molesting him and/or Kenny G.

I could use a "Lovely Rita" reference from Heidi and Cartman at this point.

The description confuses me, though.

It says that Garrison visits his hometown. If this means he's visiting South Park, it wouldn't make sense because in the last episode, he was STILL in South Park.

If he's visiting Arkansas then I won't need to ask questions about it.

Anyway, I'm hoping to see if Garrison vomits on PC Principal. I'm betting at least one of the kids gets membervomited on too.

I wonder how Mr. Garrison's folks are taking the news that their son is going to become the President of the United States, that should be an interesting reunion. Also, is there any chance the boys and girls finally unite and save the world from being overrun by member berries? I also hope to God that nothing terrible happens to Heidi, she so smart, funny, sweet and pretty and doesn't deserve to be killed or maimed by a potential dastardly scheme being harbored by Cartman or some other sort of catastrophic event! She is so awesome and Matt and Trey really need to keep her as a lead character on the show because it would finally give South Park a full-time go to female character like just about every other adult animated sitcom has and she would add a great deal of flavor to the show's brand! I'm really starting to get to love Heidi Turner, perhaps even as much as I love Wendy and maybe even Red!

When I saw the 'hometown' headline I too, thought of Arkansas, and even imagined the Garrisons and Clintons running into each other there, heh :)

It'll be curious what Garrison does back home in town with his newfound power. I joked on Facebook that Matt and Trey don't need PC Principal anymore. If they have any regrets about last season, now is a logical time to fix them. I had JUST given up hope on Garrison eventually hitting a wig. Guess those glasses'll disappear in a few weeks if they don't bring the real Donald in.

I have no commentary towards SpaceX or Gerald, except that I hope if we see Elon Musk, there's a Handicar nod, and I have to confess I've really grown bored with Gerald's storyline. I was fine with it for several weeks but it's out of steam.

I hope the season moves into the final phases of it's storylines this week and that the last two episodes have sufficient time to breathe as we reach a climax, preferably with the female and male characters coming to a resolution and Gerald's identity being exposed. SP's been a little weak towards the Gender War subplot since the first couple episodes, imo
South Park is a platform for Matt and Trey's social commentary and satire; there is no canon and these characters only serve as tools for self-expression. Don't get attached.

That Garrison is in PC Principal's (upgraded) office seems to indicate that he considers South Park his hometown now.

Yeah, no, I thought of Arkansas but I think the pictures point to him just being in South Park for the week. The real question is what this unfinished business might be - just converting everybody, or something more specific?

Two problems:
1. Arkansas is a state, not a town, and a specific town in it has never been pegged as Garrison's home town.
2. The only unfinished business he had there was his sexuality - being upset that his father didn't rape him.

As long as I was logged in, I put in an early start for this episode's wiki page.

Notice a missing plot thread: no sign of Butters or Bill Clinton's Gentlemans' Club. I imagine they'll minimize or drop the angle since the joke is out-of-date. Gerald's plot also makes no reference to Clinton at this point, not that I'd expect one.

I think the best path to "save" the season is to wrap up the election arc and Gerald's story here or next week latest, so the last episode or two can focus squarely on the Gender War and the adults vs. Member Berries. These are simpler stories with the highest stakes. Gerald and Garrison can tie into the Member Berries plot so he's not gone per se, just no longer split off into their own subplots, i.e. how Randy, Victoria and Garrison teamed up last season.

I wonder if the hometown in question will be South Park.
