It begins with Birdie talking about trash and how much is processed via the park every week. He discusses how Owen has put a system in place to keep the park on top of the trash and calls it is a garbage ballet. A song ensues about the garbage process. Unfortunately, the park is not on top of the trash in this episode because it’s been rerouted — this is part of Bitsy’s corruption. Meanwhile, Molly is repeating the moment over and over again about her allergic kiss with Brendan. Paige is feeling a little sick and she’s worried about rats because of the trash — she sings a song and looks for them with Cole.
Molly hears a rumor at school that Brendan may have died from a nut allergy. She rants at another student about “damn peanuts”. She sings a song about giving up the superhero life — “I don’t deserve these powers anymore”. Meanwhile, the trash in the park is getting worse and Owen declares it a Doomsday situation. He tells Birdie that they need to get rid of the garbage themselves. He uses a golf cart and builds a train to take away the trash.
