It's a creep show, so to speak, and it's time for the Ape Faced Girl to take center stage.
But the beast defies her and gets killed in front of her. Something in her head says Make Stop, Help Girl. Make Wish.
She wishes upon a candle in her hand and the place goes up in flames.
Girl safe, the voice says, and the cage opens. The bad carnival man is beheaded and the audience dead, but she's free.
Her creature is still breathing, and she goes to comfort it. That's when Niles Caulder lifts his head from across the room.
Dorothy now has a lot of new friends, including the tin man with all of his cars and funny words, the sad girl who doesn't do much of anything anymore, the boy hero who is a true superhero, the fair princess with skin made of rubber and a smile made of glass. Why would she be scared? This is where they belong, and who they belond with.
She's not friends with them yet, she opines, but maybe someday.
All of them are on a train platform as Larry, still large, makes their breakfast.
Larry is cooking mini pancakes while experimenting on a frog to see if he can help his friends. But the frog dies.
Even the tiniest plates are massive to the little people. Niles tries to gather everyone at the table, but Cliff is fed up and Jane gives up.
Rita wonders if maybe it's time to try something else, but Niles resists.
Dorothy wants to go with Cliff while he feets the rats. Cliff doesn't allow it.
Cliff kills the rat with a swift punch and marks his kill on the wall.
Jane has a whole group of people in her mind counting on getting them out. Someone has hung "time for a change" in her way, and she's not happy about it.
Dorothy is in Jane's room. She removed a syringe from Jane, and Jane reacts poorly. She apologizes and then shushes her friends, Darling and Herschel.
Niles wants the serum back because it was created as a safety net for Dorothy. Jane says she used it all. When he offers help, she calls him out on it.
Larry is making furniture for his friends. He remembers when his son was working hardon his miniature plane -- the X15, just like the one dad's flying into space.
His son used his imagination to attach the rocket that would propel the plane, and Larry does the wrong thing by saying it was wrong and needs to be fixed.
Larry wonders why he's being shown that memory. Maybe the universe is saying they need a break.
Rita is working out. She might be further along in her training if her trainer was more interested.
After 60 years, she's ready to stop wondering what her body could do to her and what she could do with her body. Vic insults her, and she can do what she needs with her arm. Vic wants her to learn to do it without her being insulted.
Cliff has a memory of his own of his time in trailer. Kate is ready to give birth. He's uninviting his dad from their wedding so he and his mother don't make a scene.
Cliff has a car ready to go and gives Dorothy a ride. His mind drifts to his accident, and then Darling emerges in the back seat causing him to slam on the breaks. And Cliff took it out on Dorothy. Niles intervenes saying Cliff should take it out on him and to go ahead and pummel some rats. That should fill the hole.
Cliff walks up to movie night wearing a rat pelt. "Hole filled, asshole," he says.
Niles sings Lovely Daughter and Willoughby Kipling appears. Niles needs his assistance in fixing their situation.
Kipling wants to make a deal for his help, but when he says part of his deal is for what's around Niles' neck, Niles puts his foot down.
Rita tells Vic that they hear his nightmares at night, but he doesn't want her help.
Larry heads out of the house and pays a visit to his son who has taken a bunch of pills. Larry thinks he left all of that long ago and wonders what the hell is going on.
Jane and Cliff talk about their situation and make fun of Dorothy before Niles intervenes. Dorothy is missing. She's taken Cliff's cheese to go feed the rats, so they need to go save her!
Vic thinks he found a trap by Mr. Nobody, but Cliff and Jane find Dorothy inside the rat hole. There's a rat cleaning her newborns. She's a mommy, Dorothy says.
There is a small one moving away, and Dorothy wonders what will happen to it, and the mother goes over and bites its head off. Dorothy goes crazy, while Jane talks of natural order.
Dorothy has released one of her friends. Niles tells Cliff to stay away because it's not something Cliff can just punch. Out walks her horned friend. He's alive!
A tarantula comes out, too. Make Wish dude is coming. Niles is begging for her to stop him, screaming, "Don't make me lock you away again!"
Everyone emerges fine.
Something unknown happens, and the group is large again.
Niles gives his amulet to Kipling. Nothing comes before his family.
Cliff, large now, is actually feeding the rats instead of taking out his aggression on them.
Rita is struggling with her elasticity in the garden, eventually successfully manipulating her body without insults.
She runs in to tell Vic and discovers he's gone.
Jane shoots up again.
Larry looks up his son's obituary. He died at the age of 60.
Niles and Dorothy say their "prayers" before she goes to sleep. She wants to make sure he's always going to be with her, and he promises he's not going anywhere.
Before she drifts off, she says goodnight to Herschel and Darling. When she lays on her pillow, the other one says "Father Dying." She tells him they all need to go to sleep. Must Stop. She says he's not dying. They all heard him. He's not going anywhere. Make Wish. Not today, she says. When. We'll see.
