Part 1

After living in Chicago for 2 years (he first moved there in 2013), Little Guy decides to move back into his home town with Leafy. But, after arriving there, he finds out that the city is all but a wasteland (remains of the Great Greeny Purge). So, he decides to fix it, killing Gree Guy and his 9000 clones in the process. After that, he patches things up with Dr. Beanson, who decides to send the Needy virus to Little Guy, which backfires, thus infecting Dr. Beanson. A bit later, he is recovered in the Master Recovery Center, and starts to have a flashback of the many times he was in his home town...

Part 2

Dr. Beanson continues having flashbacks, until Little Guy tells him to wake up, as he was up all night. Leafy explains that Dr. Beanson needs a paper airplane, then she gives one to him. They then go to the arcade. After that, they hold a homecoming party for the others.

Part 3

The homecoming party turns out to be a huge success. The next day, Little Guy and Dr. Beanson play video games on Little Guy's Dell, and then watch Little Guy and The Mystery to New York. After that, they destroy the Gree City.

Part 4

Back at home, Little Guy brings back stuff from the Battle for Dream Island dimension. The credits then show, but gets cut out by Little Guy, who explains that there's "more content" to show. A preview of the next episode plays, and then the credits play.

Theatre showing

The episode was released to theaters on the first of January 2015, and its trailer was shown at GreenyCon 2014. If tickets for the showing sold out, most people can buy the digital download version for free as a consolation.

WFLD-TV hijacking

During the 2nd airing on WFLD-TV, the broadcast was hijacked with a video containing a man saying: "THIS SHOW...IS ATROCIOUS...I HAVE COME TO SAVE YOU FROM THIS SHIT!". The video then cut to several Furbies apparently having a burping contest. It then cut to the album artwork of Green Day's album 21st Century Breakdown, accompanied by the song "East Jesus Nowhere" in the background, before cutting back to the same man saying "CHANGE THE CHANNEL NOW!!!!!!!" before shooting himself in the head with a Nerf gun. The screen then went to black for a few seconds before resuming the episode.

The perpetrator has not been caught.
