« And Jesus, do we really need to see "Apprentice" promos before a movie? Don't they know Trump is totally last season? | Main | You, madam, are tattooed. In fact, you are extremely tattooed. And tomorrow, I shall be sober. »

And so we come to the end of the road trip. Well, not really. In fact, this isn't an ending at all, because Artie and Dave still need to get back to Narbonic Labs and Dave needs to explain to the rental agency how the truck got trashed and we don't know who the programmer is who's going to "remove" the order-taking compulsion from the Madblood Androids, or what the programmer will actually do to them. (This is assuming the programmer doesn't turn out to be Madblood himself, of course.) The revelation of Zeta's past is left hanging as she moves on, and Dave's jealousy over his brother persists.

And yet, this feels like the plot's end, so we're declaring it the plot's end. All else is denouement.

Denouement.

It means "the events following the climax of a drama or novel in which such a resolution or clarification takes place." According to Dictionary.com.

Look, I've used the word before. Just try to keep up, okay?
