  • Grim is forced to adapt alongside the living, while Billy discovers the secret to mind control.

    Mortal Dilemma - Slightly above average, and the stronger of the two acts. As Billy and Mandy leave for school, Grim is left at home, where he is given strict orders to stay away from any forms of reaping whatsoever. For rim, however, this is no easy task. Someone's going to kick the bucket, he assures himself. However, things take a wild turn when Grim accidentally rescues a boy who nearly skateboards off a cliff. Grim then makes it his new duty to protect civilians instead of kill them. Of course, this hope of his is crushed when the kids return home, and force him to once again do household chores. The episode was a nice glimpse at how Grim struggles to surive away from the underworld, but the episode had realatively few laughs compared to the one that preceeded it.

    Get Out of My Head - One of the worst Billy and Mandy acts ever. Grim tells Billy the secret of getting into someone's head by taking control of his cat, Milkshakes, in an absolutely horrible musical score which, fortunately, only lasts for a matter of seconds. Billy then tries this trick on Mandy, where he embarrasses her by picking his nose in mandy's body and failing all her tests. Eventually, Mandy regains control and knocks Billy out of her head, and swears revenge. Pretty much all of the jokes in this episode were relatively stupid. Definitely not the best the show has to offer.
