Part One

The gang are driving home from having gone fishing. A fish in Matt's fish tank has been eaten by Sir Swamsalot, but then dies as the smaller fish puffs up. Matt says that Sir Swimsalot exploded, and asks the gang to go fishing. Tom and Edd then state that they just went fishing. The screen flashes back to the gang fishing and Tom shooting a harpoon gun at a whale. In the car, Edd complains about how Tom sold the sofa to buy the harpoon gun, but Tom simply states that he'll harpoon them a new one.

Once home, Tom is seen carrying harpoons to a nearby room (singing 'Harpoons, harpoons, they're better than spoons), but before he can enter, he sees a silhouetted figure tampering with a lock. Tom then drops his harpoons in sudden surprise, Edd is also in sudden shock, and Matt is nonchalantly eating a cookie. The figure reveals himself to be none other than Tord. The return of the 'old friend' annoys Tom, whilst the rest of the gang are happy as can be. Tord states that he's upset that he couldn't have been there for all the adventures he missed out on, so Edd decides that they should redo them, this time with Tord in on board.

Throughout the montage of them doing their adventures, Tord constantly harms Tom. When the gang returns home, Tord asks if he can have his old room back, which now belongs to Tom. Tom loses it, throwing the couch through the wall and storming out. Eduardo sarcastically remarks how happy Tom looked, with Jon not picking up on the sarcasm as Mark lounges on the thrown couch.

Edd wants to go after Tom, but Tord manages to persuade Edd to stay and catch up now that's he back. Matt suggests they all check out his toy collection, and Tord follows up by saying they should watch "Return of the Insane Zombie Pirates from Hell 4". The animation ends with Edd saying "Just like old times, right?" and Tord responding with "Just like old times..." before closing the curtains.

Part Two

Tom is now homeless and attempts to find a new house to rent. He checks out several houses before eventually giving up and deciding to live in a cardboard box.

Meanwhile; Edd, Matt, and Tord are watching the film mentioned in the previous eddisode. Edd ponders over what happened to Tom, but Tord is quick to change the subject.

Tom meets a homeless man who reassures him that he's making the right decision, before inviting him to perform a rat-puppet show. When he looks up, Tom has left.

Tord sneaks away from Edd and Matt and into his/Tom's old room. He flips a lever hidden behind a portrait of himself, revealing a hidden room filled with advanced technology and weaponry. he goes to press a large button in the center of the room, however before he can Edd interrupts him. He attempts to convince Edd the room is merely a laundry room, however Edd runs past and begins pressing buttons, causing objects around the house to come to life and start acting as weapons. Matt arrives, and joins Edd in pressing buttons. He attempts to press the large button, however Tord punches him in the face in order to stop him. Matt is visibly hurt, until Tord offers to take them for ice cream to make him feel better, however Edd remains more wary of Tord.

Tom goes to a real estate developer, and uses all of his money to buy a house, surprising the man in the office with his large sum of money.

The others are out shopping, when Tord leaves, pretending to take a phone call (using a banana as a fake phone). Edd asks Matt if the thinks Tord is acting suspicious, but he's ignored as Matt says he's "On the banana".

Tom is leaving the real estate building, when he spies a wanted poster on the wall. He runs back to the house, with Edd and Matt deciding to follow. When Tom gets to the house, he catches Tord about to press the button and questions him about the hidden room and the wanted poster. Tord reveals that the large red button is merely to dispense his favorite hat, but then turns to press another red button, dropping him into the cockpit of a robot, modeled after himself.

The robot is confronted by Eduardo, before it launches a rocket at Eduardo's home. Edd and Matt return and question Tord on his actions and Tord reveals he was merely using them to get his giant robot back. Tom attempts to throw one of Tord's chairs to defeat him, shouting "Take a seat!" as he throws it. Tord launches a missile in response, destroying the house. Edd and Matt are horrified at by the rubble of the house, before seeing a body resembling Tom's in a crater. Tord begins flying away, but is halted when the robot begins punching itself. He looks down to see Matt at the control panel, pushing buttons, causing the robot to attack itself. Edd joins in, before they are interrupted by Eduardo, grieving over Jon's body. Edd and Matt realize that it was Jon who died, not Tom, before Tord destroys the control panel and flies away. Suddenly, Tom pulls himself out of the wreckage of the house with his harpoon gun, and fires at Tord, damaging the robot and causing it to crash on a nearby cliff.

Tord is soon discovered in the wreckage by two men. He stands on the hillside looking down at the house before finally leaving.

Several days later, with Edd delivering a box of ashes from their old house to Tom's new apartment. They discuss Matt, who is currently 'redecorating' his own apartment with images and statues of himself. Tom and Edd say their goodbyes to one another, as Edd walks out into the hallway sadly, only to be greeted by Matt.

Edd, Tom and Matt sit down in Edd's apartment to watch Insane Zombie Pirates from Hell 5, as Edd asks Tom why his eyes are black. However, before Tom can answer, he eats a mouthful of popcorn, causing him to mumble his response as the camera slowly pans out, and the front door closes on Edd's apartment.

After the credits, the Sinister Guy finishes telling three children the "story of Eddsworld," and asks them what they thought of it. Jon is revealed to have become a ghost since his death at the hands of Tord's robot. Jon tries to tell the children that he is fine, until he realises that he is a ghost and becomes disappointed.

Development

On 15 April 2014, Eddsworld's Twitter released a photo signifying the completion of the script for Part 1.

On 16 February 2016, Eddsworld's Twitter confirmed the release for Part 1 to be in March 2016.

On 23 February 2016, Eddie Bowley confirmed on his Twitter page that Part 2 was going to be a collab with Brandon Turner (Wazzaldorp), Greg McMahon (Gregzilla), Matt Ley (ThatLaserBearGuy), Jamie Spicer-Lewis (RageNineteen), Tobias Knitt (Knitti), Joshua Palmer (Zeurel), Anthony Price (Kreid), Ben Smallman (Wonchop), Marc Lovallo (SuperSmash3DS), and Billy Crinion (BillyBCreationz) serving as animators; with Jonti Picking (Weebl) providing backgrounds, and Paul ter Voorde creating the animatic and serving as art director.

Between March 2nd and March 9th, 2016, screencaps of Part 1 were posted on Eddsworld's Twitter.

Trivia

General

  • There are some differences to the animatic and the finished project:
    • When Edd said he had an idea the camera didn't zoom in on him.
    • During the scene when they recreate the adventure from MovieMakers.
    • The scene where Matt checks the script was added to the finished project.
    • The second chair that Tord throws on Tom had a pillow and speakers attached to it.
    • When Tom finds his "dream house" he's showing holding a picture containing a two-story mansion with a rainbow behind it.
    • The hair style of the lady in the "Return of the Insane Zombie Pirates from Hell 4" was slightly different
    • The graffiti on the picture of Tord that hides the lever to his lab is slightly different. And the picture of the button had skull and crossbones instead of just a skull.
    • The Picture of the behind the lever, was a capital R instead of the Red Leader logo.
    • The guy who sold Tom an apart didn't have glasses.
    • Instead of placing the lady on the shelf with the pickles, Edd just hands her the pickles normally.
    • When Tord was talking from inside his robot there were bubbles that show him inside his robot talking.
    • There was a window beside and on the door of everyone's apartments.
    • Matt also calls Edd from the window beside his door instead of from the door.
    • When the gang was watching "Return of the Insane Zombie Pirates from Hell 5" Matt had a drink.
  • The song from Part 1's credit and opening music is a remix of "Edd's crappy song" by Todd Bryanton (A.K.A LilDeuceDeuce).
  • The lines for the flashback scene recorded by Spicer-Lewis, Hargreaves and Ridgewell were first recorded normally, then bit-crunched to match the 25ft Under the Seat's audio.
  • Paul ter Voorde was originally going to animate the scenes involving Tord's mech, but had to cancel due to his work as a part of Studio Yotta.
  • In Paul's animatic, when Tord was taking off and later losing control of his mech, there was a bubble with Tord inside.
  • Sometime after the Eddisode's release, Eddie Bowley revealed that Part 1 and 2 were written as a single episode, and that the original Part 2 was to be a musical. He commented further on this in February 2018:
    "So in addition to Tom's comments about The End pt2: Our original plan was that the events of part one and two were both going to happen entirely in part one. Then part two was going to be a musical episode about the trio looking for a new house together while being pursued by every Eddsworld villain ever. But as the co-producer & co-director I shut this down. At the time, we basically only had a month record all the lines. So Tom and I had no chance to write and compose a musical in that time. It was a big change but we decided to add more material to part one and then break it in half to become the new part two. We would have loved to have done more with it and many ideas had to lay scrapped but it's just how it panned out. While part two became a big Tom v Tord episode and maybe not Edd heavy enough, I'm still incredibly proud of our work and this and all the episodes in Legacy."

Visuals

Errors

  • When Tom's harpoon gun is revealed, Matt's fishing rod clips through the boat.
  • In Part 1, Matt seems to wear his green overcoat in the MovieMakers reference scene. In the next shot, he only wears his purple hoodie. This is a coloring error ,since Matt has the same kind of sleeves (lacking the overcoat's flares) on both shots.
    • A similar error was shown when he munches on a cookie while acting indifferent to Tord's return; in the pre-release shot, he only wears his hoodie, which logically carries over to the next shot. The final cut, however, has him wear his overcoat.
  • When Tom is about to shoot Tord's mech with a harpoon, the right sleeve of is hoodie is ripped up to his upper arm, like a short sleeve. But, during the scene when the three watch the mech crashing, that sleeve appears to be undamaged. His left sleeve, however, is still torn off completely.
  • Tord's giant robot's arms change appearances in different scenes.
  • Tord's giant robot's hand is not colored for one frame before flying away.
