There's no easy way of saying this, Baby Nation, but Mallory is over it. She's sick and tired of her abundant chores, the endless parade of babies she's required to sit, and the constant, relentless terror of living in a parallel-universe nightmare town, infested with living dolls, chaos dinosaurs, and as of recently, wolves. Stick around for all of that, as well as a very important PSA from Jack and Tanner about exactly how much time you should be putting in at the office, because some of us may have misunderstood the rules on that one.

We’re considering changing the name of the show to “The Pete Black Club” because we discovered our favorite character in the entire series this week. Here’s all the rad stuff Pete Black did this week: Burned Cokie Mason, worked on his part of the school project, and found a way for Tanner to mention Bread Theory. There’s some other less important characters in this book like Mary Anne and Logan and a toilet monster, but we can’t really remember what they got up to because we were so laser focused on Pete Black’s antics.

It's been awhile since we had some good, clean baby-sitting fun, but that's what Kristy always brings to the table, and this "Baby Parade" lark is no different. Sit back, relax, and enjoy what can only be described as a romp, as Kristy Thomas pits baby against baby in a bloody, catastrophic battle for the future of civilization, while Jack and Tanner have a good, old-fashioned gossip sesh about Communism and Killer Dolls.

Have the boys got a special treat for you, Baby Nation! Did you know that Jack and Tanner are actually officials with the Parisian government? It’s true! And they have an opportunity of a lifetime for you. For just 500,000 Francs, you can buy the rights to all the scrap metal on the Eiffel Tower to do with what you please. DO NOT PASS UP THIS CHANCE, BABY NATION!

Another very special bonus mini-episode hosted by the great Tanner Daniel Greenring! Jack is also present. This week, the boys are discussing "Karen's Worst Day," a terrifying thought experiment by Ann M. Martin about a world in which literally everything goes horrifyingly, irrevocably wrong.

We've come to the end of the road for our friend Anastasia McGill. Ann M. Martin's mercy is infinite, but her patience is not, and if one of these baby-sitters was going to get the  ol' "Ned Stark" treatment, it was basically always going to be Stacey. Jack and Tanner spend most of the episode grappling with their guilt about the fact that they don't really miss her all that much, and Jack desperately and somewhat pathetically tries to gin up a conversation about German philosophy.
