Phoebe’s Choice

Tonight’s the night, folks! The weird semi sad but funtastically delightful final episode of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency season two is tonight! I don’t have time to bring you completely up to date on this adaptation of the character created by Douglas Adams, but I can remind what the funk happened last week. So.

Things started with a flashback to the Cardenas’s house fifty years ago just after the one young boy had used his dreaming powers to kill his abusive parents. Black Wing agents showed up, wanting to tap the potential of his powers. He resisted and the struggle triggered an epileptic seizure that put him in a permanent coma. But from within that coma he dreamed into existence the magical land of Wendimoor. Flash to: in Wendimoor the greatest swordsman of the realm sacrificed himself in a fight versus Suzie Boreton so Dirk and the gang could all regroup and formulate a plan of attack. Back in Black Wing HQ, Ken found holistic actress Mona and convinced her that she must help him save Dirk.

In the real world, Farrah and Tina confronted the Mage at a rock quarry where he was using an entranced Sheriff Sherlock to load a car with explosives. Bart and her new bestie Prince Panto fought their way through Mr. Priest and his Black Wing agents so they could access the portal to Wendimoor. The two gay princes were soon reunited. Evil sorceress Suzie sent her army through her own portal, right into the heart of Black Wing HQ to kill “Project Moloch,” the boy who had been in a coma all his life dreaming the pocket dimension of Wendimoor into existence. Bart then watched her new bff and his loved ones get slaughtered by Suzie’s men. She was about to go ham killing them all, but that gets saved for the finale. Amanda and Todd worked together to manifest a portal that sent Dirk back to Black Wing HQ so he could save Project Moloch and bring him to Wendimoor for the “happily ever after.” But just as he escaped, Suzie showed up, and the Rowdy Three took the point in confronting her.

It’s a very bizarre convoluted plot that you realllllly should absorb from the get go. But each episode is funny on its own if not self-contained. I highly recommend some binge watching. This show hasn’t been renewed yet, but the ratings are way up. So here’s hoping!!

On tonight’s episode, “Nice Jacket,” Dirk fulfills the prophecy and restores order after returning to Blackwing; Todd and Amanda face off against Suzie Boreton.

To see how the faceoff against Suzie goes, tune in to BBC America at 9/8c.
