Meanwhile, Nick has to escape Blue's stronghold. How does he do that? By using Blue's wife and son as his human shields (one for the front, one for the back). It's risky, but it's a risk Sax is willing to take. After they all make it out alive, Blue's wife tells Nick where her cheating, loathsome husband ran off to (his sister's place). Obviously, Mrs. Blue has some beef with her beau.
Amanda meets with Sunny Shines, the megastar performer at whose performance Hailey was abducted. He's a common denominator: all the kids that were kidnapped happened to be at his show at the time. Amanda wants Sunny to use his celebrity to raise awareness of the issue. He, in turn, makes a disgusting pass at her, and gives her free tickets to his next show. What a guy.
What looks like the illest party of the year. Everyone there is in tight-fitting rubber costumes, wearing animal-head masks, having sex, genuflecting before Mr. Bug, feasting on manna in the form of large pupae, the list goes on. Then they spot Amanda… who ruins their fun.
And Merry, on the hunt for Blue, pulls over his car, not thinking she's going to see Nick Sax riding captain. They decide to pair up, despite themselves, to find Hailey and the other kids. That's when Merry gets a call from Amanda — the bug people have got her, and she needs help. Sax and Merry are on it.
Happy has led Merry and Nick to Sunny's Rainbow Castle, where the toys are made, and where the kids are being held. It's like if Disney built a theme park during the Inquisition. Anyway, Merry and Sax split up, and make their incursions.
Meanwhile, Sax gets led by the nose into a classroom where he thinks Smoothie is lecturing to a bunch of kids. This was a trap — instead, it was a recording of Smoothie's voice coming from a speaker. Smoothie then jumps on Sax's back, and knocks him out with ether. Top marks, boys.
Under strict orders from Mr. Bug, Blue has arrived at the Castle, and sends off the truck filled with all the boxed boys and girls. Blue didn't want to be selling kids into child slavery, but one bad turn deserves another, and he ended up in the crapper.
