With Arnold having been killed by Suzie in the hospital, heading back to Wendimoor might be the only way for Dirk to successfully close the Cardenas case and prevent anyone else from meeting their untimely fate. Rather than be excited at the prospect of a new case, let alone one that involves pink-haired warriors wielding scissor swords and far away kingdoms that can be reached via Murphy bed, he’s seen the type of collateral damage that follows his investigations and no longer wants to be responsible for the hurt of others. Combine Dirk’s newfound sense of caution with Todd’s overwhelming desire to find Amanda and you have the perfect opportunity to head to Wendimoor, do some rescuing, and find out information on The Boy that Arnold Cardenas wasn’t able to give. But is it even possible for them to enter Wendimoor without attracting immediate unwanted attention?
On the next episode of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Dirk and Todd finally make it to Wendimoor, only to find themselves lost in this land that’s, until now, only been this intangible world they’ve spoken of. But Wendimoor is very real and, most importantly, very dangerous; between the newly armed and active Kellum Knights, Suzie taking one step closer to becoming a Queen after her hospital rampage, and Dirk’s own position within the Wendimoorian prophecy, Dirk and Todd will have to be as alert as possible once crashing into the kingdom. They’re coming into an unfamiliar location with no weapons, no backup from Farah, and no specific place they know to use as a safe harbor. Frankly, if Dirk and Todd are to have a chance at making it out of Wendimoor with Amanda and the answers about the Cardenas murders that they seek, they’re going to have to hope the universe will cause them to stumble upon the Bofuki Nepoo.
There they can at least link up with Amanda and the Rowdy 3, using Wakti Wapnasi’s power to help protect themselves from the looming threats and give them time to formulate their next move. But what will Dirk and company do if they get pinned down by Suzie and the Kellum Knights coming at them from all sides? Would Todd and Dirk still have the chance to find anything out about Arnold Cardenas? Or would the real victory from their time in Wendimoor simply be making it back alive?
