This is the eighth and penultimate episode of The YouTube Arc. It was aired on August 15th, 2020.
Hey guys! If you're just joining in, we're in the middle of a story arc.
A "normal" day begins, when Mario wakes up and is asked by Luigi to go help SMG4. Yet, Luigi begins to glitch rapidly, causing Mario confusion and paranoia. As they were magically teleported to SMG4's office, Mario starts to feel anxious as the cast was acting strange, with most of them glitching, and ran out to the foyer.
Mario mysteriously finds SMG4 in the foyer, who morphed into SMG3. Saddened and enraged over SMG3's supposed murder of his friends, Mario tried to stop him but was frozen mid-air by SMG3 who used the YouTube Remote. Walking behind him while telling him that he would spare him, he breaks the fourth wall, welcoming viewers to the SMG3 channel, with a video starting, showing a rather generic storyline.
However, SMG3 started to get upset as he realized that none of his supporting cast members (apart from Melony) were following what he intended them to do, like following the script. (In the case of JubJub, he was upset over accidentally getting his brother sucked into a black hole). Frustrated, he lashed out his anger at them, only for Belle to tell him that he would never be like SMG4. Angered at Belle's statement, he shocked her, upsetting the others. SMG3 yells that he is better than SMG4 and demands the credits to roll. They do so and the episode ends.
Back in the void, Mario, who is still stuck in place, suddenly heard and saw visions of YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and SMG4, who with the rest of the cast was not dead but just sent to the Internet Graveyard, communicating with him via a video call at Starbucks. It was revealed that Susan was the only being that can stop SMG3 from altering the timeline, but was outsmarted by him as he deleted her in The Day SMG4 Posted Cringe. With enough power left, Susan freed Mario, with SMG4 giving him a mission to retrieve SMG3's phone that has access to the channel's hacked account to re-upload the debut episodes they appeared in, and provided a portal for Mario to go after SMG3.
Mario later caught up with SMG3, leading to the cowardly latter to run away, as the former gave chase, while the anti-cast were not bothered to help their leader anyway as they were upset with him. After avoiding the numbers of Content IDs trying to kidnap him, Mario finally tackled SMG3 but was defeated straight away as SMG3 told Weegee Doll earlier to send a horde of Content IDs to take Mario away to the Internet Graveyard.
As the gang awaits their Italian friend at Starbucks, Mario lands in the center of the room. As they ask if he received SMG3's phone, Mario continues to lie down and refuse to show his face. Being given the impression that he was grieving, the gang feels that he failed and grows upset. Mario then stands and turns around, smiling, as he reveals the phone in his hand, having managed to pickpocket it as he tackled SMG3. As his friends smile, Susan exclaims its time to return home as SMG4 uses the phone to bring everyone back, and the final battle has begun.
