You haven’t missed anything. Linkara said that after the conclusion of the Gun and Sorcery arc he’d be taking a break from storylines for a few months.
Linkara has finally finished two of the three new bodies he’s been working on for Pollo - the Standard Pollo and the Ground Pollo. Pollo is upset because neither body has working arms.
Doctor Insano gleefully rambles about his plans for world domination over speakerphone as he pilots the giant robot Neutro. Linkara orders Nimue to deploy Neurto’s shutdown sequence, but Nimue says the system is not responding. Linkara asks how Insano was able to get control of Neutro when Nimue was supposed to be monitoring the robot. Nimue explains that she’s been extremely overtaxed over the last year thanks to random malfunctions and had to relax some security measures in order to stay functional. Linksano says that Insano has probably been planning this ever since he heard that Linkara had lost his magic. Linkara orders Nimue to fire on Neutro, but Insano has apparently given Neutro an energy shield and is undamaged. Nimue can’t beam Linkara into the robot thanks to the energy shield, and they can’t get backup from Angry Joe as he’s currently orbiting the other side of the planet. Linksano claims he can get through the energy shield in less than an hour and Linkara tells him to do it.
Later, Linksano tells Linkara that he’s managed to weaken the energy shield and can teleport one person and one small object into Neutro. This time, Linkara takes a Cybermat with him, and sets it loose inside the robot. Linkara confronts Insano in the control room, but Insano puts a force field over the door. Linkara tries to convince Insano that ruling the world isn’t worth it and he can have everything he wants with Linkara’s holodeck (like he did with Linksano), but Insano’s mind is set on real world domination. Just then Neutro’s power fails thanks to the Cybermat, and the force field disappears. Insano attacks Linkara and Linkara orders Nimue to beam them to his apartment.
In Linkara’s apartment, Insano dons a pair of techno gloves that knock Linkara back with incredible force. Linkara realizes that when Insano took off with the Nostalgia Critic’s house, he got all the tech that was onboard, including the power-enhancing energy gloves that Jesuotaku invented. Linkara tries firing with the Magic Gun but Insano simply blocks it with his gloves. Linkara tries to take Insano head on but the gloves prove to too powerful. Linkara morphs into White Ranger Zeo Linkara and the two begin to fight in earnest, but they’re interrupted when Linkara is shot down by Jaeris.
Jaeris angrily tells Linkara that thanks to him, he can never go home and save his world. Linkara says he’s learned about Jaeris’ mission and he’s sorry for what he’s done. He realizes he made a horrible mistake, but he claims to have the resources to help get Jaeris back home. Insano says that he doesn’t know what’s going on, but he could totally be more help than Linkara and urges Jaeris to join him. Linkara says he wants to help Jaeris with his mission and while he can’t promise success, he’ll do everything in his power to make it happen. Linkara offers Jaeris the Magic Gun, telling him to take it and the ship if that’s what it takes to free his world.
Jaeris silently considers this for a moment before turning his gun on Insano, who lashes out at the two of them with his gloves. Linkara tries to put a force field around Insano but Insano simply punches through it. Linkara and Jaeris try to fight Insano but he easily knocks them back. Linkara has Jaeris distract Insano with a barrage of gunfire while he speaks directly to Margaret. He says that the last time they spoke, she said that he was holding back her real power, and he asks her to show it now. Suddenly she’s at his side. She give him the power to charge up the Magic Gun and fire a powerful blast at Insano that knocks him down. Linkara tells Nimue to beam Insano out of there and she does so. Jaeris asks why they didn’t do that in the first place, and Nimue says that she couldn’t get a lock on him until his gloves were disabled.
Linkara says he wasn’t lying before; he wants to use Comicron-1’s resources to help Jaeris get home and save his world. Jaeris asks why Linkara is helping him after everything he’s done to Linkara. Linkara offers his hand and says it’s because he was wrong about Jaeris; he doesn’t think he’s an enemy, he think he’s a friend. Jaeris doesn’t take Linkara’s hand, saying that he isn’t ready to call him a friend yet. He wouldn’t have to ask for help if Linkara hadn’t destroyed the pocketwatch in the first place.
Later, Spoony is hanging out with Linkara and apologizes for Insano. He asks if Linkara’s really going to help Jaeris, and Linkara says that Linksano is currently working on finding the coordinates of Jaeris’ universe, as apparently the computer in Jaeris’ ship is different than Comicron-1’s. Spoony asks if he can really trust Jaeris but Linkara thinks it says a lot that Jaeris didn’t just take the Magic Gun and leave him to Insano. Spoony leaves the room to order pizza and Linkara looks up to see Margaret. He asks her if her showing up like this is going to be a regular thing and she says no - there are rules to the forces of magic that Linkara’s playing with, and he’s going to need to learn them for facing challenges in the future.
Meanwhile, on Comicron-1, Nimue says to herself that over the past year, she has dealt with massive critical failures that have interfered with normal operations, and that they are far too numerous and in specific areas for it to merely be a malfunction. She begins to do a self-diagnostic to determine the problem, but suddenly her electronics spark and frizzle and she falls silent. After a moment, her green light turns red as she says in a strange voice, “Self-diagnostic…canceled.”
Linkara beams aboard the bridge of Comicron-1 and orders Nimue to beam everyone aboard and tell them to get to their battlestations. Linkara contacts Doctor Linksano and Pollo and tells them to coordinate with Nimue and find the Gunslinger NOW.
Finally, Nimue contacts Linkara, saying that the Gunslinger has been found. From Engineering, Linksano tells Linkara that the only reason they’ve found the Gunslinger is because he’s currently dimension hopping and putting out a lot of energy. Linkara orders them to pursue and they charge into another dimension.
The enemy ship is put on screen: it’s ship in the shape of a house. Linkara asks Linksano if he’s worked out all the bugs in Comicron-1’s refit seeing how things didn’t go too well the last time he fought a house. Linksano says that it’s all taken care of. Linkara hails the enemy ship and demands that the Gunslinger surrender or be destroyed. Nimue reports that the enemy ship is increasing speed and Linkara orders her to match speed and lock on weapons. Comicron-1 fires on the enemy ship and manages to get the shields down to 50%. Just then, alarms go off and Nimue warns that the weapons are malfunctioning. Linksano reports that circuits in the communications systems are overloading. Linkara asks then why are the weapons being affected, but Linksano doesn’t know. However, he says that it’s not what happened when Linkara was fighting against Terl. Harvey at the weapons controls manages to bring down the enemy’s shields, but warns that their weapons are gone. Linkara wants to teleport over to the ship with an army of Cybermats, but Nimue says there’s only enough power to transport one person and a small being. Linkara orders Nimue to transport himself and Pollo.
On the enemy ship, Linkara tells Pollo to hack into its systems and try to cut the engines. Linkara looks around the ship, realizing it looks like a house on the inside too, commenting that some people must really want the comforts of home along with them. Pollo says he’s interfaced with the computer and is downloading information. Linkara notices a bunch of Magic Guns lying on nearby table and sees his Magic Gun amongst them. He takes it and marvels over the Gunslinger’s collection. Pollo says that there are several files on the computer referencing the guns and video logs of his encounters. Linkara tells Pollo to download them all. Linkara looks over the guns and wonders if the Gunslinger got them from other universes, noting their varied designs.
Suddenly the Gunslinger discovers Linkara, his Magic Gun ready. Pollo has found the gravity controls and causes the room to lurch, throwing the Gunslinger off-balance. Linkara tells Pollo to turn the ship around and Pollo hacks into the navigational systems. The Gunslinger orders the computer, Sierra, to redirect the gravity and he does so, causing Linkara to lose balance. He contacts Nimue and tells her to teleport him and Pollo out of there, but Nimue says that’s not possible as power reserves haven’t recharged yet. While Pollo and Sierra battle for control of the ship, Linkara and the Gunslinger duke it out. In the fight, Linkara manages to get ahold of the Gunslinger’s pocketwatch. Suddenly Linkara and Pollo are beamed back to Linkara’s apartment.
Nimue explains that the enemy ship returned to this universe and Comicron-1 was able to get in range and teleport Linkara and Pollo to safety. Linkara says the Gunslinger will be along soon and tells Pollo to review in the information he downloaded for anything useful. Pollo reviews the files at advanced speed, but before he can say anything, the Gunslinger teleports in, looking haggard. He demands the return of the pocketwatch but Linkara threatens it with the Magic Gun. After the Gunslinger invading his home, attacking him and his friends, almost getting them to kill each other, and kidnapping the Magic Gun, Linkara is extremely pissed off. The Gunslinger says that he doesn’t understand, but Linkara is in no mood to listen and destroys the pocketwatch. The Gunslinger doubles over in pain. He charges Linkara in a rage, but he’s beamed away. Pollo angrily chastises Linkara for destroying the pocketwatch, saying that the Gunslinger is not their enemy.
Later, on Comicron-1, Pollo explains that the Gunslinger’s name is Jaeris. He displays one of Jaeris’ many log entries on Comicron-1’s screen. In the video, Jaeris explains that in his universe, a few years ago, there was legislation from the government to supposedly protect the rights of the artists. Jaeris was an internet reviewer then, and his work started getting curtailed as more and more laws were passed. The video changes to show a woman in white explaining that the pirates and criminals have been using the internet to get away with theft for years, but with this multinational initiative, the rights and work of artists will be protected. Jaeris goes on to say that if you expressed opinions contrary to what the government or its backers thought, you’d be taken in the middle of the night and never seen again…and that’s what happened to him. Fortunately, the resistance broke him out of prison and they got to work undermining the regime. But they didn’t have the resources to take on the government, so Jaeris decided to travel to other universes and find people who could help him. He holds up his Magic Gun and explains that he used his magic to create a link between him and his wife back home - his Magic Gun. It’s powered by both of their souls together, and will continue to work as long as they’re both alive.
Harvey asks why Jaeris didn’t just ask for help. Pollo displays another video: Jaeris explains that he’s heading home soon with the people he found in other universes. They all have their own Magic Guns and they’re ready to fight to free Jaeris’ world. Later, a visibly shaken Jaeris says that all his companions are dead. Linksano explains that plenty of universes are similar enough that one can travel from one universe to another with no difficulty, but sometimes a person just can’t exist in another universe, it’s poison to them. It happened to Linksano a few times before he invented a device that allowed him to dimension-hop without fear.
The logs continue: Jaeris says that some of the guns are still workable and can be used by others. With Sierra’s help, Jaeris discovered that once the full power of a Magic Gun is unlocked, it can be used by anybody. Apparently the best way to unlock a Magic Gun is to put its owner through great emotional stress. Jaeris says that he may be alone, but at least he can use the Magic Guns to save his world. Pollo says that Jaeris goes on to describe multiple battles he had with other people. He never deliberately killed anyone, but he always took their guns after they were unlocked.
Linkara asks what this has to do with the pocketwatch. Linksano explains that while some universes will kill you if you step into them, other universes will simply assimilate you into them. Once you become a part of that universe, it’s nearly impossible to go home without dying again. A device like the pocketwatch can keep one anchored to their universe and allow them to temporarily exist in another universe, like with Lord Vyce and his armor. Linkara asks if Jaeris can’t just make another one but Linksano says that you can only create one in your own universe and they are extremely difficult to make. Linkara realizes with horror that by destroying the pocketwatch, he’s guaranteed that Jaeris will never be able to go home again.
Just then an alarm goes off and Nimue reports the Neutro has launched and is marching towards Minneapolis. Doctor Insano is back, and he has control of Neutro.
Meanwhile, Sierra regretfully informs Jaeris that he’s finished acclimating to this universe. He explains that if Jaeris were to try to return to his universe, he would die within seconds. He asks what Jaeris’ orders are. After a long silence, Jaeris takes his Magic Gun and leaves.
Correct, we don’t have any details about his death.
Pollo contacts Linkara from Comicron-1, saying they’re ready for an overhaul of the security systems on the ship and apartment.
“Good,” Linkara says, “then we won’t have any more problems with intruders -“
Suddenly the Gunslinger appears, shooting Linkara in the back. He takes the Magic Gun from Linkara’s prone body.
The Ghost of Christmas Present has been replaced by the cloaked Ghost of Christmas Future. Harvey Finevoice demands to see the Spirit’s face and and the Spirit removes his cloak, revealing himself to be Future Linkara. Future Linkara tells Harvey to consider him an echo of what Linkara could be, what he will be. Future Linkara points out a gravestone nearby.
“Oh NO, it’s my GRAVESTONE!” Harvey says sarcastically. He rants about how this has all been a pointless waste of time and that of course he’s gonna die. EVERYONE’S gonna die.
“We’re all gonna…die and leave when we shouldn’t. So what the hell do you get outta showin’ me that I’m gonna die, huh!?”
“Harvey,” Future Linkara says, “where do you think you are right now?”
Confused, Harvey takes a closer look at the gravestone.
It’s Charlie’s grave.
“I don’t wanna be here!” Harvey sobs. Future Linkara says that Harvey’s always here, and that Harvey was the one who brought him there. Harvey says he can’t say goodbye to his son, not when there’s someone out there just like the one he lost. Future Linkara says that he’s not Harvey’s son, and that he needs to accept that. “You have to say goodbye.”
Harvey says that Linkara left for three months, and it was like losing his son all over again. He was so angry that’s he’d left him again. Future Linkara says that he’s not who Harvey wants him to be and he never will, he has to let go of him. Harvey asks when do you start moving on, and Future Linkara says what better time than Christmas?
“This is where you are, where do you want - where do you need to be?”
When Harvey looks at Future Linkara, he’s disappeared. Harvey turns back to the gravestone.
He slowly gets up. Just then Linkara walks in. He’s surprised and delighted to see Harvey and urges him to join in the festivities, saying that this is a time to be thankful. He rushes out of the room and Harvey smiles to himself.
Harvey Finevoice finds himself in Linkara’s apartment, where he’s greeted by the Ghost of Christmas Present. Harvey says he’s not in the mood for this and asks the Spirit to take him back to his hotel room, but the Spirit says he’s not the one who brought Harvey there. Just then, Linkara begins his review and the two watch him.
After the review Harvey says, “Geez, my kid really knows how to pick ‘em.”
“Your kid?” the Spirit asks.
“Mr. Finevoice, where do you think you are right now?”
Harvey stares at the Ghost in confusion before stumbling away seemingly in pain. The scene fades to white.
The episode opens with Harvey Finevoice doing a concert before a throng of screaming fans. Later, in his hotel room, he’s visited by the Nostalgia Critic. After the events of To Boldly Flee, Critic has taken a job on the side as a Ghost of Christmas Past, and is here to give Harvey a much needed kick in the ass. He tells Harvey that he needs to trust Linkara again, but Harvey says that he doesn’t trust himself around Linkara. Critic asks how Harvey and Linkara met, and Harvey flashes back to a review years ago, back when Linkara still spoke softly and had terrible lighting.
Harvey explains that during this time, his son had died and his wife left him shortly after. Harvey was a wreck. Linkara found Harvey lying by the side of the road while he was training for his Amazons Attack review and got him help.
“The kid saved me, really,” Harvey says. “I made sure to always have Charlie’s back.”
“Charlie?” Critic asks in confusion.
“Harvey, where do you think you are right now?”
Annoyed, Harvey says he’s talking to Critic, but Critic says that’s not it at all. Critic says he has to go now and wishes Harvey good luck, leaving the other man in confusion as the scene fades to white.
I have all those episodes listed in the Guns and Sorcery tag. I’m not sure why you’re not seeing them, they show up for me. Is anyone else having this problem? It might just be tumblr acting up.
