Episode 4 opens up with Brad (played by Danny Pudi) and Jo watching the kids playing Battle Royale — he’s happy with the success. Then, David comes in with a cake to celebrate Brad’s birthday. Brad denies that it is his birthday, but then his brother Zach walks in with balloons — Brad does not look impressed. Jo notices that Brad looks frazzled afterwards — he believes his brother is plotting to take his job.

Ian cannot drive stick

Ian’s minor insecurities return in episode 4, but this time it’s how he handles the wheel of a sports car.

Rachel catches Ian unable to drive a Porsche sports car, and she knocks on the driver’s window. Ian says he can drive stick and blames Poppy of fudging chocolate in the clutch — he’s needlessly insecure about it. Back at the office, Poppy shows his team the video of Ian not being able to drive the car. Dana gets annoyed at Poppy, saying she’s become her assistant, and she wants to learn how to code.

Back in the car, Rachel and Ian argue — Rachel believes he is irritable because Poppy is beating him. Ian tells Rachel that she has equal opportunities as a woman and that she can pitch ideas with him immediately. Rachel does not know what to say.

Rachel wants time to think and asks Ian to have a seat at the table —  Ian asks her, “what seat?” but she doesn’t know what to say again. Ian tells her to stop blaming all of her problems on straight white men.

Brad wants Poppy not to show Zach kindness 

Brad’s irritable nature with his returns, and surprisingly, he’s not exactly paranoid as we are led to believe.

Brad learns that Zach is getting a tour with David around the company he is furious. He tries to look for him. He speaks to Poppy and tells her not to give Zach any kindness. When Zach shows up, Poppy tries to insult him immediately. Jo finds Brad in the bathroom and warns him that something bad has happened.

Bringing in Snoop Dogg

In the green room studio, Zach has brought Snoop Dogg in to do an in-game concert. Brad is not happy. When Brad and Zach are alone, it confirms that Brad is right — Zach tells him he needs to take his role at the company just like he took Kate; he asks Brad to beg him not to take his game. Zach walks off wishing him a happy birthday but confirms he also knows it isn’t his birthday.

The ending

While Zach walks out, Jo joins him in the elevator — she asks him who Kate is — he explains when they were younger, they had a pig called Kate, and Brad got too attached and wouldn’t kill the animal; Zach explains he killed the pig as Brad’s “balls never dropped”.

Mythic Quest season 2, episode 4 focuses on Brad and his extremely unhealthy relationship with his brother — more themes of failed masculinity return, and we get a special guest from Snoop Dogg.
