slowly moves in on the Whale who is looking at Whale porn on a laptop. A Swiss army knife stabs the floor, missing his head by inches. Randy grabs the Whale and holds him down; army knife in the air. The Whale swears he had nothing to do with the video clip being uploaded but makes a mistake in saying that he helped Froggy with the deed. When Randy was beating up Froggy, the Whale took the SD card out of the camera; leading Randy to think the footage was erased.

Randy unleashes his anger by stabbing the Whale numerous times. Froggy hears his screams of pain from the second floor. Randy makes one last cut across the Whale's backside and eye socket. His dying words are "fuck my blowhole." Randy exits the room covered in blood and stuffing. As if things weren't brutal enough, Randy returns for Froggy. He snatches him off of the table and shows him the murder scene, exclaiming, "this is what you caused!" He holds Froggy down and expresses in excruciating detail how he really feels about him. Froggy pleads for his life while trying to explain that there is something that Randy has to see. Randy doesn't buy it, knowing very well that Froggy always has tricks up his sleeve. Randy explains the heartbreak of having the "Remember" track snatched away from him and drowned in the swamp. Froggy's final question is "why are you doing this?!" Randy says under his breath, "because she told me to..." Ember McLain appears from behind the doorway as Randy begins stabbing Froggy. The final stab goes up through his head. Froggy falls and lands on top of the lifeless Whale. Froggy mutters, "Ember....Em...ber...Ember...." Now on his deathbed, Froggy's final words are, "There's a CD under your bed....Please forgive me....I love you..." Randy exits the scene with his hands covered in blood.

Two days after the murders, Randy finds the disc under his bed. It's a DVD that both Froggy and the Whale recorded. They express their gratitude for all of Randy's help. Randy breaks down, feeling remorseful, lost, and alone. Ember appears and says to forget about them. Still an emotional wreck, Randy makes his way to his room; closing the door and ending the video with plenty of unanswered questions. A collage of clips are displayed, showing that Ember has been lurking around in Randy's life all of these years.

FACTS

- The third episode in the "Finale" saga.

- Randy tears a tendon in his right pinky finger as he stabs Froggy.

- The first video in "PioneersProductions" history to have an opening title sequence. "Comeback Song" is first heard in this video (with the exception of the "Anthology" series).

- The first appearance of Ember Florez.

- Randy's rage and stress in this video was actually taken directly from his personal life. Little acting was involved which made the performance as authentic as possible.

- This was the true departure from the comedic styled videos on "PioneersProductions".

- The first video that Randy composed an original soundtrack album for.

- Randy drank Busch Light during the brutal scenes with Froggy and the Whale.

- There isn't anything visible on the laptop screen in the scene with the Whale looking at whale porn.

- The ending scene with the DVD was the last thing Randy filmed before his dog, Bruno's, death. The eeriest thing is that scene was based on the end of "Marley and Me"; where the kid puts in a home movie of Marley and reacts to it.

- The video was shot on three different days.

- The first video in years where Randy was unable to yell from trashing his voice. The murder scene with Froggy took everything he had.

- Randy's camera monitor was broken during the filming for most of the "Finale" series. The murder scenes with Froggy and the Whale underwent multiple re-shoots to get the correct framing and lens focus. The speech in Froggy's murder scene was risked and shot as it was without checking for framing errors, due to the limit with shooting time.

- The video, as all "PioneersProductions" videos are, was filmed in 24 fps. However, it was also exported from Final Cut Pro in 24 fps. This causes the opening title graphics to lag and stutter as they zoom into the camera lens. All videos are always recorded in 24 fps and exported in 30 fps.

- This was the first "PioneersProductions" video to have different iris settings on the camera. Shots were intentionally shot with darker iris settings. However, some shots turned out to be too dark and could only be improved to a certain extent in post-production. Shots are grainy at times but it also fits the dark atmosphere throughout the video.

- The alternate "theme" of the "Finale" saga ("Your Turn" in "Extinction"; "Title Screen" and "Extinction Reprise" in "Resurrection") was based on John Harrison's adaptation of "Camptown Races"; from "Creepshow's" ,"Something to Tide You Over."

- One of the most painful videos ever filmed in "PioneersProductions" history.

- The blood used throughout the filming of the video remains on portions of the camera lens to this day.

- Mallorie Suzanne (Ember Florez's voice over actress) recorded her VO at the beach. The video was released only days after receiving her voice over.

- The episode's release was delayed because of Bruno's death (August 11, 2014); it was worked on sporadically throughout that week, and was released on August 25, 2014.

- Nothing on Ember Florez's model moves. The model was originally created on the "Call of Duty Black Ops II" emblem editor; although, being there was a limit on layers, only the top half of the model was made. The top half portion was created in March/April 2013 (15-16 months before the episode was even a thought). The bottom half was created during the production using the same tools; although, it turned out poorly. Nothing on the model was moveable. "Resurrection" improved the model with movable eyes. "Absolution" completely reconstructed the model from scratch in Photoshop. All post-"Absolution" models were created in Flash.
