Welcome back to A Single Tom where things take a decidedly dark and melancholic turn right as we’re about to end the series. In fact, many members of the show’s staff consider this to be the true finale for the series despite Tim & Eric choosing the next episode being the last one to air as they felt it would have been too depressing to end the season on such a dire note. Just how bad does it get? Let’s find out!! It starts off as you’d expect it to with Good ol’ Tom Peters visiting The Mayor, but this time he has some sad news to deliver. It turns out his eldest stepson, Brindon, has just died. No seriously, the more or less FINAL episode of this series has one of Tom’s stepson’s dying a gruesome and violent death. Now I’m not a fan of HOW he died as it’s a rather mean spirited fat joke as he ate enough food during his birthday party to eventually explode, but the point is still made. Tom Peters, the man who can never face anything in his life, has to face one of the hardest things anyone would ever have to go through.
