|“||But remember, X's magic is keeping you at room temperature, or, I guess, oven temperature.||”|
The episode starts with Four saying that he and the contestants have been driving for 5 weeks without interruption. Suddenly, Purple Face appears, asking to come into the bus since it is hot out in the desert. He begs for Four to make him a co-host, Four says no, while X says yes. Purple Face uses reverse psychology on Four, so Four accepts him as a co-co-host. He then asks Purple Face to get the bugs off the roof. Purple face then tries to blow them off. He then says that it could take a while. X then proceeds to say it is time for Cake at Stake.
Cake at Stake
X then says it is time for Cake at Stake. He announces Leafy got immunity, so she is safe. He then asks Purple Face for a prize, which Purple Face blows the bugs into his hand. X gives the one of the bugs to Leafy. He announces that Teardrop got 11,222 votes and Flower 11,112 votes, so they're safe. He then gives them bugs, and Flower compares her bug to Four, who takes it as a compliment. Gelatin and Lollipop realize they are the last two left, and that their alliance will be split up. Gelatin tells Lollipop that he has a syringe, in which the eliminated contestant can give the other their color, and Lollipop tells Gelatin not to brag. X is about to reveal who's safe, but Flower interrupts him and asks if she's safe. X tells Flower that she's already safe, and reveals that Gelatin is safe with 10,577 votes, meaning Lollipop is eliminated (only getting 9,684 votes). Lollipop injects herself with the syringe, injecting most of her color into Gelatin. Lollipop compliments him and Teardrop, and the three hug. Flower joins in on the hug, and the other three are clearly displeased with her presence.
After the intro, Lollipop asks Four how he's going to send her to the BRB. Four then asks Lollipop where she thinks the BRB is, and asks her to point at it. She breaks through the van's roof with her hands, and points backwards. Four snaps his fingers, causing Lollipop to levitate through the hole. Four tells Purple Face to blow Lollipop towards the BRB, which he does. Lollipop asks Four to recover her if she doesn't reach the BRB, and she flies off.
Before the challenge
Four claims that they began to like Naily at the end, and Flower reminds him that that was Lollipop, Four says that he thinks that he wasn't as much attention as he thought. Gelatin claims that he can barely focus in the heat, and asks why it's so hot. Four claims it's because he's there, and says he's thinking of doing stand-up. X says he would watch Four's act, but Purple Face says he wouldn't. CRT randomly shows up and tells Four they might, but wouldn't prioritize it. Four asks who they are, but then explains that they're entering the World's Largest Oven. X snaps his fingers, explaining his magic made it so the contestants wouldn't die in the oven. Four tells the group that the magic is keeping them at room (or oven) temperature, so they'll still die on the walls. Leafy thanks X for always looking out for the contestants, but Four gets upset since he was also looking out for them. CRT asks X to use the magic on them. X says he doesn't know who they are, but uses the magic on them too. Leafy tells X he's a great host, and Four says that he's a great host too.
Four steps out of the bus and asks if it smells nice. Gelatin says no, and CRT agrees, prompting Gelatin to ask who they are. Four gets upset, yelling that they're sick of everyone's attitudes. He says it was supposed to be a fun trip, because they haven't been there before, except for Teardrop. He says that Teardrop is happy to be back, but she shakes her head with a frown. Four then says that if everyone hates the oven, their challenge can be to escape the oven. He snaps his fingers, closing off the exit. Flower tries to open it again with her fingers, but fails, due to not having the powers to do so. Four then leaves the door slightly ajar, making an exit.
The challenge was to escape the world's largest oven. Four snaps the hosts out of the oven, except for Purple Face. Purple Face tells Four to snap him out too or else, Four gets set ablaze as Purple Face says "Never mind" and pretends to enjoy it. Flower asks what everyone plans to do, as Teardrop drags Leafy and Gelatin away, Flower realizes that she is not invited over there. Teardrop wants to add Leafy into their newbie alliance, then Leafy adds Flower to the alliance too. Leafy, Gelatin, and Purple Face go into a mysterious room. Teardrop and Flower climb a ladder that says "GO UP HERE". In the room that Leafy, Gelatin and Purple Face are in, Purple Face explains that being trapped in a small tiny room is no laughing matter. CRT agrees, then Purple Face asks who they are, then closes the door to stop more "vandals" from walking in. Leafy asks Purple Face is he checked that the door was locked, then Purple Face explains that you have to check after the door is closed, then he discovers that the door is locked.
Flower asks Teardrop if they are almost to the top of the baking tray, but the baking tray is nowhere to be seen. Gelatin tries looking for a key, then Leafy suggest this box. Purple Face said he already looked under there, then Gelatin blames Leafy for getting them trapped in there, Leafy explains that it could've been an elevator to the top of the oven. Gelatin says that if Lollipop were here, she would know what to do. Flower asks Teardrop if they are almost to the top of the baking tray yet, Teardrop and Flower et onto the baking tray. Flower finds a "Mega Mall" then Flower sings "Best Friend Montage". Flower made a shirt, Teardrop wants to know why she is so small on the shirt, Flower says not to worry, as she drew herself first. Flower asks how they are going to get to the top, then Teardrop uses a grappling hook to get her and Flower to top.
Gelatin wants to hear a story, then Purple Face says that he has one, Purple Face says that he was once trapped in a box, Gelatin says that that isn't the greatest story, then Purple Face says that he was trapped in a box for 8 years, so lots of his stories are box-related. CRT says their story was the memories that they shared together, then it flashes back to everyone asking them who they are. Gelatin asks her to go away. Leafy says that her story was when she added Flower to their alliance, Gelatin says that that wasn't nice. Leafy explains that she is Number 1 on the niceness chart. Gelatin and Leafy argue about Leafy's niceness, as Purple Face says that they can fight about it later. Gelatin look under the box, and there is a key under there. Purple Face explains that when he said he looked under the box, he lied.
Flower explains that it was nice going to the mall again, after being in a ruined city for most of the year. Teardrop uses a grappling gun to get to the other baking tray. Leafy, Gelatin, and Purple Face are glad that they are out of that oven, Leafy says that she can't believe that Gelatin said she was mean. Gelatin says that he didn't say that, just that Leafy's niceness seems fake sometimes. Leafy throws CRT at the oven door, CRT screams as they die. Gelatin asks who CRT was, then Leafy throws Gelatin at the door trying to break the glass. Gelatin screams as he dies, then Leafy throws Purple Face at the door. Leafy gets a lot of trash at the mega mall. Flower asks Teardrop if she is scared, then Teardrop lets Flower get out of the oven first, Flower thanks Teardrop. Leafy throws trash at the door, as the crack gets bigger. Teardrop betrays Flower, as Flower shouts "I TRUSTED YOU!!!!". Leafy breaks the entire door. Flower falls onto Leafy, then Teardrop escapes the oven. Four states that Teardrop wins immunity, then the voting screen comes on.
Four is thanking the final 4 for coming to his standup show, but Gelatin boos. A strange floating noise is then heard by Flower and Leafy, who ponder what it could be.
Four weeks later, Income Tax Return Document is sitting on a sofa in a yellow room, when suddenly a spike cracks through a wall, followed by a longer spike, and ITRD ducks to avoid being stabbed, while also revealing the (original) release date for TPOT 1.

- The time 4:27 could also mean season 4 episode 27, the numbering of the episode.
