|“||Welcome, jury, to the first ever BFB court case! Court is now in session!||”|
"Who Stole Donut's Diary?" is the 22nd episode of Battle for BFB, and the 53rd episode overall. The episode was released on Friday, July 24, 2020.
The episode begins with Leafy advertising the newly released Leafy plush. It then cuts over to the Have Cots living in the contestant house, talking about and appreciating their winning streak. Lollipop then makes a sarcastic comment on how she feels bad that the Have Nots don't have a home and have to sleep outside in the cold, and that they get to sit back in luxury. Leafy, taking Lollipop's statement literally, saying that she has a good point and gets the idea of inviting the other team into their house. Since Lollipop didn't actually feel bad for the Have Nots, she stated that there wasn't enough room in their house, despite there being plenty of room. Leafy responds with asking "Wouldn't that be the nicer thing to do?" Angering Lollipop slightly who says that they don't have to share what they won with them, and suggests Leafy goes outside. Leafy again takes her statement literally and leaves. The Cots then proceed to have a party while Leafy is gone.
Meanwhile, Four instructs the Have Nots to protect their Cake at Stake prize (which is revealed to be Donut's diary) while he helps X with something. Flower and Taco get into an argument due to Taco not accepting Flower's alliance request in "X Marks the Spot". Leafy arrives and decides to play jump rope with Taco to calm them down. Blocky runs over and reveals that Donut's diary has gone missing, and Four returns, angry when he discovers its disappearance. Four takes Flower out of the flower pot she was put in in "A Taste of Space", and decides that it will be the backup Cake at Stake prize.
Cake at Stake
X breaks Flower's Pot into pieces for the cake at stake prize, much to her distress, objecting that the pot has become part of her identity. Four then tries to start the Cake at Stake with a speech. Blocky calls him out, asking if this is some apology speech for eating all the cake last time and instead sang a weird song to distract them. Four shakily denies this, since it was the truth and throws his speech away, moving on to announce the votes. All contestants received at least 10,000 votes this time around. Woody got 14,450 votes, which is a first.
He celebrates, doing a dance and smiling. Flower is shocked that Woody got more votes than her, to which he responds in wearing sunglasses, pulling out a sunbathing chair and flipping on to it. This gains back Flower's respect. Four interrupts and tells all non-Woody members of the team to listen up, breaking into a variation of last episode's cake at stake song. He sings of how, despite their popularities, they got into a crazy vote battle which almost ended up in a four-way tie for last place. The votes were extremely close.
Blocky was the second safe, receiving 10,735 votes and his piece of the pot. He queries if Four is sure that he doesn't have Donut's Diary somewhere and if he has to keep the pot piece. Four responds with a "no", then proceeds to change his mind and determine that the contestants do indeed have to keep the pieces. Flower demands her votes to be read. Four announces who has the third most votes, which is Firey with 10,674 votes. Flower and Taco are the bottom two. Taco is shocked by this, especially since she was up against Flower.
Flower mocks her, telling her to enjoy her 0 votes. Taco retaliates saying they all got at least 10,000 votes. Flower then asks how close the voting was. Four responds "one" with a blank look and pointing out a finger. He says one single vote was to determine which of them would leave the game. Taco tries to suck up to Four in order to avoid elimination. Four exclaims that they will be heading up to the BRB to see where one of them will be going to after elimination. He jumps onto the Aloe Vera garden, causing it to ascend into the sky as a platform. Blocky compliments the garden's sturdiness, earning his thanks from X, who flies past them and into the distance. Four introduces the contestants to the Big Rotating Building where the eliminated contestants are spinning around a tower which is possibly the same building as the Yoyle Needy in IDFB 1: Welcome Back.
A cage lowers down, preparing for the next eliminated contestant. Four announces Taco's votes, having a drumroll before revealing the final digit. She received 10,565 votes, which was, by a tiny margin, the lowest amount. Flower survives with 10,566. Flower starts to dance, overjoyed that she wasn't eliminated. She then realizes how Taco feels, and shows remorse, apologising and running away. Taco miserably enters the cage, and with a final goodbye from Blocky, is sent spinning around the tower with the other BRBers.
The challenge was held in a courtroom, which was owned by somebody else according to Four near the end of the episode. The contest was for the jury (the Have Cots) to find the person who stole the diary. If they fail to do so, or 1 hour passes by, they lose.
Teardrop was given a typewriter to "document the case". However, it ends up that Teardrop makes a pirate-themed comic on it using special ASCII characters. A bit of it was read by Gelatin, where Teardrop kills him with her radioactive powers.
After a few of the Have Nots were called up and told their thing (except for Blocky, Woody at first, and Blocky disguised as a grape, who said they were going to some class, who simply pranked the Have Cots) Firey is called up and states that Leafy was the one that stole the diary, making a story that sounds really believable. Leafy then asks Four if she and Firey can have a little talk outside. Once outside, Leafy gets upset with Firey, knowing that he is lying, which leads to an argument about the events of BFDI 25. Firey then revealed he was the one who stole the diary, saying that he should at least have something worth winning as he lost Dream Island and according to the votes, he thought he wouldn’t win the game. Leafy then stated that if Firey hated Leafy for stealing the prize, why did he save her, with Firey replying that he still cared for her, but after he lost control of the hang glider and crashed, he realized they were only going after Leafy, and decided to just do nothing and not care, and over time slowly distanced himself from him and their friendship, eventually deciding to forget about her and move on. Leafy, hearing this and realizing her mistake, apologizes for doing that all those years ago, and tells Firey to return the diary, saying she’ll take the blame for stealing it. Firey returns the diary to where it was, but X suddenly appears. Now knowing who stole it, he goes back to Four and then Four scans his brain. After that, Firey tells Four to recover Leafy, and then Leafy says that she stole the diary. With her confession and the 1-hour mark coming up, the Have Cots say Leafy was the thief. However, since they were wrong, they lose (much to the Have Cots annoyance with Leafy) and are up for elimination. Four decides to let the true thief stay free, since they didn’t have the money to make a jail cell, and X gave Four the diary that Firey returned, which Four knew. (Four literally scanned X’s brain) Four then gives the Have Nots Donut’s Diary, in pieces, to each contestant.
Four walks up to Firey in a joyful mood telling him that he will not tell anyone that he stole Donut's Diary, but Four still believes Firey needs to be punished, so in order for Four to stay true to his word, Four tells Firey he needs to first clean the railway with a disgusted look on his face. Firey is pretty surprised by this and exclaims that the railway is over 1000 miles long. The camera zooms out on the railway. Four wishes Firey good luck and slides away. Firey gets an exhausted look. Leafy then walks over to Firey offering to help, in which Firey accepts and they both hug, causing Leafy to burn and die. Firey then notes that they should stop hugging.
56,990 votes were cast.
