We recap Paradise PD season 4, episode 10, “The Eternal Reckoning,” which contains spoilers and explains the ending.
This is the fourth and final season of Paradise PD, which first began in 2018, and I’m sure some people have mixed emotions when a show finishes. For me, Paradise PD has ended at a good time before the show became too crass and repetitive. Season 3 felt a bit of a stretch in ideas and content, so I was ready for season four to be a sink-or-swim situation.
This series was either going to go out on a high or be highly disappointing. Luckily, the series is full of freaky content and has a brilliantly bizarre cliffhanger ending, which was a total shock for me. I didn’t know how they would end it, but as the series went on, nothing was really tying anything together and a happy, fulfilled ending wasn’t in store.
There are ten episodes, titled (in order) “The Brozone Lair”, “Daddy’s Home”, “A Star is Porn”, “Good Jeans”, “The Shartlist”, “The Butt Cut”, “Boat”, “King of the Norf”, “Sack to the Future”, and the final episode of the season is called “The Eternal Reckoning”.
Paradise PD Part 4 ending explained
In the first episodes of season 4, we open to the town being destroyed, yet again, and while Karen goes into labor she fires the entire squad as they are useless at saving the town. Karen gives birth to a baby boy and she and Randall call him Kevin. As they already have a son called Kevin, they now refer to Kevin as “A.F.K.A.K” which stands for “A*****e formally known as Kevin”. The baby speaks, and is as crude and rude as the rest of the characters, already on bumble and making cocktails out of Karen’s breast milk. Karen is trying to make Paradise the place for Tesla’s headquarters, and of course, we see Elon Musk as a character popping in with his wisdom, and robotic sense of humor. He’s arrested by the clueless Randall who doesn’t realize who he is.
As the episodes continue we see the team trying to live their best lives, without their previous police duties. Kevin (AFKAK) keeps trying to lose his virginity, but even his new sex doll won’t have sex with him. After Randall arrests Elon Musk, Elon goes on a little revenge spree trying to get back at Randall, taunting him by swapping his mind with a squirrel and buying McDonald’s, and replacing the meat with real meat. When this fails, Karen tries again to make Paradise PD the place for Facebook’s headquarters and we see a very pale Mark Zuckerberg character, then followed by Jeff Bezos.
Eventually, the town is back in trouble, and the squad needs to reunite in order to save it and prove their worth. Karen sells the town to a creepy little man, who begins to collect the town’s DNA and create clones. Through the use of “Lovely Corp Products” they control the town.
Gina Jabowski’s character makes a return (Gina was a psychotic police officer who disappeared at the end of Season 3) when AFKAK is watching porn and she is in one of the videos. He then goes on a mission to find her — Gina is with a millionaire robot, called Mr. Lovely, to everyone’s surprise. Gina is acting like herself, which concerns AFKAK and he thinks she might be a clone. AFKAK is banned from the town after he discovers that Lovely is planning the “Eternal Reckoning” for the town.
The final episode is a jam-packed one. The gang reminisces as they believe they’re going to die that day. AFKAK has a plan to get everyone out of the city and make the city heavier by pushing it back down to earth. (The city is now hovering over the world by 38,000 ft). Dusty has quirky singing numbers in this episode, keeping it fun and lively. They use a big, fat, giant Dusty to bring the city down to earth. Then Mr. Lovely tries to use baby Kevin to gain immortality (the reckoning). AFKAK realizes he loves his brother and tries to save him. In a twist, it turns out Gina was undercover the whole time and turns around and fights Mr. Lovely. Whilst everyone is talking, jabbering on as they do, Mr. Lovely flies away with baby Kevin in a helicopter. Randall’s reaction to this is to dance. Then the series ends. Karen’s final line is “kill me” and then it cuts to the credits.
The two rednecks come on and say “why would a season finale end on a cliffhanger?” and “I guess we’ll wrap this up on Farzar then?” — this I found really clever. It’s going to make me watch Farzar (again) to see the cross-over and finally see what happens to baby Kevin and the team. Some might call this a lazy ending, but for me it’s intriguing and its cheeky ridiculousness is exactly what Paradise PD was all about.

I can’t believe that’s how they ended tho
Really disappointed with the ending, I can only assume they were doing 12 episodes like s3 and were put under pressure to cut down to 10 to release the season early.
Netflix is so bad with ending good shows on cliffhangers, daybrake, paradise pd and others that they cut when they shouldn’t have.
Aweful ending they could have easily closed it now I have no idea what the hell happened! It’s stupid I lost interest half way through season 3 it was pathetic my wrote
I think that was the point, when they want to kill something off, they just make it as horrible as possible. Where things used to be funny they were just awkward all around in season 4. Not really don’t think I’ll be watching the farzar series in an attempt to see the conclusion to this train wreck
