Happy!: So... We Need to Talk About That Scene — Right Now

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wednesday’s penultimate Season 1 episode of Happy!

Although a lot went down in Happy!’s penultimate Season 1 episode, we’re here to discuss one scene in particular. You know the one, too — the one that Smoothie suggested the universe had conspired to make happen, the one that he felt was “destiny,” the one in which he got a long-awaited second chance to torture Nick (who’d escaped from the madman’s clutches in the Syfy series’ premiere).

“Clearly,” Smoothie told his captive audience, “you are a man who must be broken.” But, since pain and suffering are but “trifles to a man who would cheerfully die in agony,” in this instance, the psycho’s usual methods seemed “so… well, impotent.”

First, Smoothie showed Nick how he got his nickname — by dropping trou and revealing that not only was his crotch hairless, he had no penis or testicles. “Holy s—!” exclaimed Nick (and us along with him). Then, Smoothie strapped on a big black dildo, declared, “I am become destroyer of worlds!” and began raping Nick until, finally, McCarthy burst in with Happy and shot the villain.

“We got here just in the… ” the imaginary unicorn started to say when McCarthy picked up the strap sans appendage. Wait, what? As Happy put it, “Oh, jellybeans!” — the thing had broken off inside Nick!
