In this video I react to seeing the nineteenth episode of Gravity Falls second season, Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality!
Welcome to my reaction to Gravity Falls season 2 Episode 19, Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality. Since word broke before this episode aired that Gravity Falls would be coming to an unexpected end, I begin with some announcements for the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel, follow with my live reaction to the episode, and finish with my Snap Analysis.
Weirdmageddon Part 2 continues the story left off in Weirdmageddon Part 1. Bill Cipher’s party draws to a close, and he sends his friends to cause chaos across the globe. Unfourtunatly for Cipher, he discovers that there is an impregnable bubble surrounding the town and limiting his reach!
Inside Mabel’s Bubble, Dipper, Soos, and Wendy discover just how devious Bill Cipher’s trap is. Mabel is in no immediate danger, but is instead empowered to have her every whim fulfilled. Mabelland allows Mabel Pines to hide from the slings and arrows of reality. Dipper, Wendy, and Soos try to pull her back, but their dreams start to become true, and they are quickly distracted.
Eventually, Dipper must defend himself in a kangaroo court to make a case for reality over fantasy. Mabel makes the case that Reality is too cruel to exist in, but Dipper is able to convince her that despite how cruel reality might be, simply turning your back on it for a fantasy world robs you of more fulfilling happiness. He unmasks how hollow Mabelland really is.
With Mabel back on Dipper’s side, Mabelland crumbles. Dipper, Wendy, Soos, Mabel, and Waddles make their escape, and realize how bad things are in reality. The episode ends back at the Mystery Shack where it’s shown that Grunkle Stan has banded together the remaining uncaptured townsfolk!
