The End Is Here

His Visit: Day Nine - Well, what a long, strange trip it's been -- emphasis on the "strange." But before we surf off into the sunset, Shaun and John return from their wanderings to deliver a message of hope, community, and hot, new surfing gear. That last part comes courtesy of Linc, who's able to make some headway on deciphering John's message and purpose, and who decides to create a Yost-based marketing campaign to provide some cover for all the mystical happenings so that the citizens of Imperial Beach don't get too worked up. Another way to keep them from getting too worked up over John and his message: make sure there's not a second season. Mission accomplished, HBO.

Are You There, God? It's Me, Weirdo

His Visit: Day Six - John spends the day hanging out with his Father and not talking. Butchie and Shawn do talk -- it doesn't go so well at first, but things wind up pretty OK between them. Most of Palaka's talking is of the fever-induced variety after a tattoo gone horribly wrong.
