Episode Recap

Kenny magically reappears, just as Dr. Mephisto is about to reveal who is Cartman's father; but suddenly the lights go down and a shot rings out. Dr. Mephisto has been shot. The narrator asks "Who shot Mephisto?" Mephisto is still alive, but Cartman still doesn't have his answer. The narrator asks "Who will they kill next?" Chef and the boys are driving Mephisto to the hospital when Cartman tells he needs to know this answer. He can't leave anything unfinished, like when you hear the first part of that song "Come Sail Away" by Styx, Cartman has to complete the song. Kyle tries that out on Cartman, who finishes the lyrics to that song in record time. At the mayor's office the citizens want to know what they are going to do with a killer on the loose.

The director of America's Most Wanted shows up, anxious to recreate the scene of the crime for airing on their program. The narrator asks "Who will the director cast first?" At the Unplanned Parenthood Clinic, Cartman's mother asks for an abortion in the "40th trimester". Since the law won't allow that to occur, it is suggested that she go to see her Congressman to get the law changed. Chef and the boys arrive at the hospital, but Stan, who doesn't like hospitals, sees the conditions there and runs out. The auditions for crime scene recreation are being held, and Mr. Garrison tries out for the role of Mr. Garrison, but loses. Liane Cartman sleeps with her congressman, who suggests that she try the governor. At the hospital, the doctor has done all he can for Mephisto all they can do now is wait. They may have a lot of time on their hands as a snowstorm is hitting South Park. At rehearsals for the crime re-enactment, TV's Eric Roberts has gotten the part of Dr. Mephisto's little friend Kevin. Back at the hospital, the snowstorm has closed the pass and Chef and the boys are trapped there. The doctor and his armless nurse alone attempt to deal with all the trauma patients they've received as a result of the storm. Mephisto is on life support, which should be okay, as long as the power doesn't go out. America's Most Wanted starts broadcasting their recreation of the crime, when the power goes out losing their feed to the network and leaving the network to go to their feature movie, which leads the narrator to ask "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" At the hospital, the power has gone out, but the backup generator will only last about ½ hour. Liane Cartman sleeps with the governor, who suggests that she try the president. Chef and the boys are asked to help out at the hospital, meanwhile at the TV studio everyone is snowed in and trapped "like sailors on a submarine." When hunger sets in, Jimbo suggests that they may have to eat someone to stay alive. The director and the narrator both ask "Who the hell made Jimbo boss anyway?" At the hospital, Stan pukes into an open incision as the light begin to flicker. Cartman and the narrator ask "Who is screwing with the lights?" At the TV studio straws are drawn. Back at the hospital Kenny is drafted to connect up the newly discovered backup generator. At the TV studio hunger has set in and everyone there decides that they must eat Eric Roberts to stay alive.

At the TV studio Eric Roberts has been eaten. At the hospital Kenny has almost reached the generator. Back at the TV studio, the director and his assistant have also been eaten. The narrator asks "Who built the pyramids?" Kenny makes the electrical connection restoring power to the hospital at the cost of his life. At the White House Liane Cartman sleeps with the president, who promises to grant her wish to terminate her pregnancy, when she realizes what she really wanted was the other "a" word, adoption. She realizes she should probably just tell her son the truth. Mephisto regains consciousness and tells them that the shooter was probably just his brother, who tries to kill him at least once a month. After the storm, those who remain uneaten in the TV studio finally are able to dig themselves out. Mr. Garrison announces that he is bringing home some "Eric Roberts in a doggie bag." In his hospital bed, Mephisto eventually reveals that Eric Cartman's father is his mother. Liane Cartman is a hermaphrodite. Since hermaphrodites cannot bear children Cartman's mother got another woman pregnant at the drunken barn dance, which leads Cartman and the narrator to ask "Who is Eric Cartman's mother?" Cartman decides to "forget it!"

Kenny dies when he's electrocuted while trying to restore electricity to the hospital.
