Gelatin inspects Fries' fries, stating that some of them seem to be "swollen". Fries gets mad, believing that "swollen" is Gelatin's new slang word for "overweight". Gelatin denies this, but Match walks by, stating that Bubble has been looking swollen lately. Gelatin then says that two of Fries' fries looked "yellowed", "bulbous", and seem to be "wiggling". Fries is now visibly angry, and tells Gelatin to "eat someone else's innards". Gelatin then slides over to Barf Bag, implying that Gelatin wants to eat the barf that is in her, who greets Gelatin while doing the intro pose Four would normally do.
Before Cake at Stake
Cake at Stake (on the Moon)
On the Moon, which A Better Name Than That and are still stranded on it, watch Donut broadcasting himself through TV. Donut, calling himself a "bagel brain", announces that he will host the Cake at Stake through there, which makes Lollipop from laugh since "bagel brain" was the nickname she gave him. Donut's arms pass through the TV screen as he forcefully grabs her lips and shuts her mouth to make her stop. Tennis Ball asks Donut how he's doing this despite him being on Earth. Donut attributes this ability to his new camera, which can also transmit matter along with light. Basketball, acknowledging this, then tells him to get both teams back on Earth, but he can't, for the transmission only goes one way. Lollipop uses that to her advantage and bites Donut's hands. When Donut tries pulling his hands out, they are stuck in the camera and therefore stuck on the moon.
Donut exclaims that he cannot hold this position and then finds out a way to unite the Earth with the moon. Donut clips some grass in between his legs and then starts to warp Earth through his camera. This is successful, as after this is done, the Earth's surface is now right above the Moon. TV comes back to everyone else from space. The camera is floating around the earth. The objects then jump back onto Earth, and with A Better Name Than That back, Cake at Stake can continue.
Cake at Stake (on Earth)
Donut begins Cake at Stake near the Lavatories. The whole ABNTT launch themselves into Donut's hole, making it harder for him to speak. 22,238 votes were cast, and the cake for the Cake at Stake is the Firey Speaker Box, chopped up into seven pieces. Firey is shocked, and Donut says it's just "tit for tat", which is a reference to Donut's chopped corpse being used in "Get in the Van".
Tennis Ball, Blocky, TV, Grassy, and Basketball are all safe, getting Firey Speaker Box pieces. While Robot Flower broke the signal due to an "explosive" that would later kill Remote, she was safe anyways. It narrowed down to Golf Ball and 8-Ball. Donut announces that Golf Ball is safe and 8-Ball is out.
8-Ball is launched between the Earth and the Moon, and Donut teases him for being eliminated in the eighth episode. 8-Ball denies having a favorite number, but Donut interrupts and eliminates him by turning gravity back on. 8-Ball is crushed between the Earth and the Moon and Saw accidentally inhales the fumes from 8-Ball being crushed.
The contest is a quiz show, and getting one question right would result in the team that answered correctly, safe. As Donut is about to announce the first question, Bubble has a flashback to "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?" in BFDI, where she remembers Pencil saying that she is so dumb she can't even count to three. However, before she can answer question one, Pen buzzes in the correct answer, making his team, Death P.A.C.T. safe.
As a result, Bubble is belittled by Match and Snowball. After Donut announces question two, Bubble gets nervous, as both Match and Snowball give her the evil eye. When Bubble buzzes her answer, it is wrong, making Match demote Bubble from a "bember" to a "bemb".
Meanwhile, at Free Food, Stapy, instead of answering the question, is building something resembling a buzzer made with a popper, cardboard box, and tape that was removed from Puffball. Cloudy buzzes in his answer, and gets it correct, making Beep safe and Fries upset. Meanwhile, Barf Bag continues to struggle, despite Donut giving her easy questions, attempting to ensure his team safety. She blames it on her reflexes, but Lollipop states that it's her "barf molecules".
Question three is the result of snow and gasoline being mixed. Barf Bag still can't figure out the answer, and Saw attempts to buzz in "glue", the correct answer, but accidentally says "eight" instead. Book comforts her, saying that everyone makes mistakes occasionally.
Barf Bag is still struggling. Meanwhile, Cake knows the answer but is scared to buzz his answer in fear due to Loser's elimination and Loser not being there to support him. That's when Pin gives a motivational speech, motivating Cake to buzz in his answer, getting it correct.
Donut tells Barf Bag he can't take her struggling anymore, so he asks her to recall what he sees when he looks at his teammates, which he said in a speech only his teammates heard. Saw says "eight", which is debatably correct, but wrong. Then Barf Bag gets the answers correct, giving Team Ice Cube! safety. Donut is overjoyed, but Stapy complains the question was biased.
Question five is 1 + 1, which even Saw herself can't answer due to her only saying "eight". Donut says that his duty as a host is to punish Saw for this, and plays an audio tape of Four's screech. However, it does not affect Saw. When Donut points the recorder towards himself, he gets screeched anyway. Golf Ball buzzes in her answer, which is correct.
The sixth question is to name the past tense of "eat". Saw buzzes in "eight" once again, due to 8-Ball's fumes, and Donut is about to call her out for being wrong. However, since the correct answer "ate" and response answer "eight" sound alike, Saw gets it correct.
The final two teams yet to get an answer a question correctly are iance and Free Food. The final question is to name Donut's favorite season and Stapy guesses winter. He is incorrect, and while Puffball pushes the fake buzzer to iance, he pretends to be dismayed.
Bubble knows the answer, but the fake buzzer doesn't work and gives Stapy time to buzz in the correct answer - summer. Donut announces that iance is up for elimination, but Match objects and shows Donut the footage via Camera of Stapy cheating, resulting in Free Food being disqualified and up for elimination instead.
Fanny approaches Bubble, telling her that Match didn't know the answers either and calls Match a hypocrite. Bubble thanks her for the information, and Fanny says that she hates Match.

- Donut using Firey Speaker Box as cake references what Firey Speaker Box did to Donut back in "Get in the Van", as he explains that it's just "tit-for-tat".
- Clock being able to tell when Cake at Stake starts may be a reference to "Get in the Van", where Clock had "CAS" as one of the hours of the day.
- When Free Food was up for elimination, Eraser poses the same way as in "Paper Towel".
- In the beginning, Gelatin was trying to eat Fries's fries and then analyzed them just like in "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3" and "Welcome Back".
- Changes to characters from past episodes are still present.

- When Bubble was demoted to "Bemb" status, Bubble started yelling, "Noooo!!!" in a familiar "posture". while the screens pan out to the remaining iance members. This is a reference to "Power of Three" when Snowball paired up with Golf Ball and Rocky, he started yelling "Noooo!!!" in a similar posture like Bubble while the screen pans out to reveal a few objects surrounding him.
- When TV was inside Donut, his screen was the recording of Loser still in the jawbreaker in space.

- This marks the first time A Better Name Than That lost a member.
- 8-Ball was the third male contestant eliminated in a row, along with Loser and Roboty.
- 8-Ball's elimination is coincidental, considering that the number 8 is on him and that he was eliminated in BFB 8. This would be the second coincidental elimination in a row.

- This is the first even-numbered episode of Battle for BFDI without recommended characters.
- Around 3:20, the Liar Ball made a cameo on TV during the Cake at Stake.
- It is revealed in this episode that Match is flexible.
- This doesn't make any sense because she's made out of wood.
- She is possibly made of Pinewood, a type of wood that is flexible.
- Match pushing the voting screen and jumping out may be a reference to "Thanks for 4 years!" because in that video, Pen does something similar.
- Despite Donut's favorite season being summer, he was eliminated back in "Get Digging", which happened in summer 2012.
- This is the second time Camera appears in the season, but they look angry.

- Lollipop has Spongy's BFDI asset when Donut jams her lips closed.
- This was the first episode in which an eliminated contestant, in this case being 8-Ball, was confirmed to be killed during his elimination.
- Fanny stares angrily at Match in almost every background shot she's in.
- Dissecting Fries' asset in Adobe Animate CC will reveal the swollen fry to be a heart-shaped message reading "This is not X".
