Paul tells him he may want to hold off on the getting ready bit since the freak show hasn’t sold a single ticket. 2.0 becomes upset and throws a fit and claims it’s all the freaks faults no tickets have been sold. 2.0 decides he will fix this minor setback by acquiring a new freak. Eve who is quite upset herself straight knocks him in his ass with one punch. Paul tells 2.0 he is a fool for thinking he could ever be one of them. Paul then spits in his face before he informs him that they all quit. They file out of the tent. 2.0 is about to snap.
Next we see Elsa at the WBN. She wants to meet with the Preside t of the company but is told by the secretary as she has been for several days now he has no available appointments. Elsa informs the secretary that she will wait there all if need be. The end of the day comes and the secretary gets up,to leave. Elsa ask where the President is since she didn’t see him leave.

Desiree happens to hear the gunshots as does Eve who grabs a axe. 2.0 strides into where Desiree is but he can’t find her because she is hiding. This only serves to make 2.0 even angrier. Before he can find Desiree Eve comes in and attacks him with the axe. He manages to get the upper hand and shoots her in the knee. He then shoots her in the head. Desiree manages to escape. 2.0 goes back to the main tent where he has Bette and Dot tied up and ask them to go with him.

The maid who I will just call Desiree walks in with a special night cap for 2.0. 2.0 figures it out but it’s a little late. Bette and Dot tell him that he is a fool there is no way they could ever love him after what he did to their family. Jimmy comes striding in. It’s payback time.
2.0 finally wakes up from his beauty rest to find himself chained up in a tank, looks like he is going to play Houdini. Jimmy, Bette, Dot, and Desiree are excited to watch him die in the most show stopping way possible. Desiree gets in one last parting shot before she turns on the water. Desiree tells him he may look like a dreamboat but he is definitely the biggest freak of them all. They all sit down to watch. Desiree is eating popcorn. The tank fills with water ever so slowly which is torture for 2.0. Eventually he drowns and his body is floating in the glass tank. Desiree says that boy is a star. All’s well that ends well I always say.
