notes for the end episode rewrite
-opening credits w all the pics of past episodes with tord and the gang should include a photo from spares that shows (real) tord gleefully killing one of his clones in the foreground while the others do the same to other clones.
-no edd tord should reference other timelines where tord betrayed his friends and ruled the world (likely during cheesy “join me” monologue to real tord)
-real tords reason for being “back in the neighbourhood” isn’t stated. when tom bumps into him he’s having an inaudible convo on a flip phone.
-instead of breaking in fake tord knocks on their door while they are home. asks “where are your chairs” instead of “what happened to the chairs” important detail
-instead of being hit with a memory eraser gun it shows a badly animated flashback (like the lucky can origin story) of matt crossing the street without looking and getting hit by a bus.
-fake tords reason for being there is mainly to learn more about the real tord so he can take his place better. shows him subtly prompting edd to talk about all their “good times together” and about how he was while still living with them.
-fake tord is WAY too friendly with tom which really starts to piss him off because tord was gone so long and never returned their calls and thinks he can walk right back in and be super chummy. not to mention they weren’t the best of friends before he left either. tom leaves really frustrated because his friends don’t really see what the issue is because tord is back and it’s great!!! and edd finally snaps at him being super brooding and cynical and tells him to just leave “if he wants to be selfish.” and that he’s being a terrible friend (tom and edd reconcile in the end)
-real tord goes to destroy the dimension travelling device (very similar to future edd’s version) he stares at it for a while and we hear matt call him from the house because the movie is starting. we see tord roll up his sleeve and take off his wristwatch, and then it cuts to tord walking back to the house with the wrecked dimension travelling device (?) on the ground in pieces beside a hammer. tord is shoving something into his hoodie pocket and yells back at matt “don’t worry! i’m coming”
-afterwards tord plops down on the couch. same scene where edd asks tom about his eyes like in the original etc.
