I hope they bring back the cow. Doubtless hijinks will ensue as they use telepathy to discover that cows, more than anything else, are integral to The Pattern and EvilCo's menacing plans of menace.
Then the cow will pass out and its heart rate will drop. Seconds of tense drama gush forth as they try to revive the cow so they can hear the end of the conspiracy tale.
They will ask Walter what to do. Walter will suggest giving the cow a cannabis enema. Son will say, "Daamit, Walter! We only have a couple dime bags!" Walter will shurg and say, "And you still insist it's only habit forming." Son will whine, "You never really understood me. Bwah, bwah, bwah."
Walter will then ask if they have any three phase power. Son will go running and return with the better part of the assembly from a nearby elevator. They shock the cow. The cow lurches upward and utters a single word: "Rosebud". And then the cow slumps back down and we hear the infamous flatline sound of a heart monitor.
Walter will crack wise, "Cut her open. We should have churned some butter with all that lurching."
They do cut her open, there is butter and the gang finishes the episode eating toast. Just before the credits, there is a quick flash of a laboratory with vats filled with thousands of gallons of rich, creamy butter. Roll credits.
